NUMBER 29
The Vale Election.
It has bwn said tliat "polities
makes strange lied-fellows," and instances illustrative of the truth ol
the saying .re not wanting in this
Provinc*. But, perhaps no political
con I eat has presented features of a
more striking phenomenal character
than the one in progress in the Yale
District. Three highly respectable
gentlemen, bonajide residents of the
Dis'rict, announced themselves as
candidates (0*6)1 the vacancy caused
by the lamented death nf Mr. Pies-
too Bennett. A fourth candidate
. came into the field—in the iiersou of
Mr. T. B. Humphreys, who, having
been defeated in Victoria District and
disdainfully rejected by Nanaimo,
was turned out of the Cabinet to
make room for Sic Armstrong—
with the understanding, however,
that if he succeeded iu wresting the
empty Yale seat from the Opposition,
lie would have a portfolio made for
bim. The three resident candidates
being all on one side—solid Opposition "men—.it was clear that, if they
all went to {he poll they would so
e;.lit up the vote as to all'ord "Tom"
a ohanee of. slipping in; and one of
them retired bofore nomination. An
effort was made to induce one of the
remaining tw« to retire; but it was
unsuccessful, in the first instance at
least, each apparently being led to
believe that his claims were llio
atrongest, his chances the brightest.
Both, we*, thcefore, nominated on
the 29th ult.—to ilie great satisfaction of the Government party, who
'saw, or imagined they saw, a choi.ee
of their candidate getting in by a
Yninori'cy vote, tho mnjoi'ity being
about equally divided between the
Opposition candidates. These hopes
have, however, been rudely dashed
to the g-o'jiid. On Friday evening
un Opposition meetirg wus held at
Yale. Mr. Gieen-Artnytuge was
present. Tiie danger of the Goverti-
macfc candidate slipping in between
the two Opposition .candidates was
oVseiissed. Although a strong man
fl'.d measurably confident of election,
Mr. G"een-Armytage had enough of
patriotism to resign. Ho did resign.
,He i-esigned iu favor of Mr. Martin.
The result cannot be doubtful. Mr.
Martin will hell a solid vole in the
upper tnd of the District. In the
rest of it he will certainly poll one-
half. In the whole Dis.rict he will
probably poll two votes to Mr,
Humphrey's one. It will bo amusing, if it is not edifving, to lake a
glance at "Tom's electioneering tactics; and it is here that the phenomenal features of the contest come in.
Having taken a hasty run up the
tittnk road for the purpose of feeling
the political pulse, and finding that
ft wonld be necessary Id simulate
Opposition in coi.stquoi.ee of the in-
tense unpopularity of tho Government; "Tom" telegraphed to the
Colonist, tht leading Opposition or-
(Jan; announcing through its columrs
tbat he was a candidate for the Yale
District! In pursttarco of the same
tTanuB policy, "Tout" lias been ever
airce inveighing against the "duffers," hia late colleagues—posing
iidw as an Oppositionist, now ns nn
Independent, and, occasionally nnd
6onfidenlially, when it suited his
purpose, as a supporter of the Beaven
administration! The funniest part of
the Story is that, notwithstanding
hia coarse denunciation of tho Government, tlie organs havo both warmly espoused "Tom's" caiisel On Friday next this politicul travesty will
and. Before the retirement of Mr.
finnytage, we fancy tho chances bf
this disciple of Janus woro slim
mough. Tbey are nil now. It would,
ndeed, be a severe reflection upon
;he intelligence and common sens.; of
.he constitueney to suppose tho olec-
ion of such ah one possible, even
Mtu' twd Opposition candidates di
viding tho votes. The District of
Ya'e is a large and important one
the interests of which are, through
the insi-umentalily of railways and
canals and lhe emersion of its magnificent wuter-v/ays, verging on immensity. Thee it e within its bounds
many mon w^ll qualified to lepreset t
its rapidly e;;pai i!:. g inte'ests in the
Le^is'ntiro. Under these ci'Tirn-
stsrees, is it at ti'l cureeivable that
the Dis.rict world import from Van
couver Ii'and a poMiieal "dead-beat"
to tenement itl In M*'. Geonje B,
Martin, Yolo will have a good repie-
san Uttive. Tiie son of a. British Admiral, he has the advantages of a
liberal education, while, as an old
setl'er and lV-me", he possesses the
experience and the interests consti-
(utii-g on itnpo\ant element in the
nial;e-up of a good representative.
Thoroughly sound in politics, ho will
be in entire harmony with Mr. Ma'a
nud Mr. Seuilin on alt the leading
questions of tlio day; so that, in
ejecting Mr. Martin, Yole will present fl strong, because united, front
in the new House and the new Gov-
ernmert about to bo foraied out of
that House.

Georgian Bay Disaster.
Thrilling Accounts by Survivors.
The terrible disaster on Georgian
Cay last month by wliich no many lives
wove lost in tho ill-fated Asia, litis
thrilled the whole country with horror
The following harrowing account of
the affair, given by Miss Morrison, -me
of ttio survivors, will be found interesting.   It is taken from the Globe:
MISS MOItr.ISOS'.SSrATEMENT.
Pai:ky Sound, Sept. 20.—Miss Morrison is still very weak and oonfinod to
her bed, but the doctor considers her
out of danger. She was able this aitur-
noon to furnish your correspondont
wiili tho following account of the disaster:—
"I went on board tho Asia at Owon
Sound; I hud c ticket for Sault Sto.
Marie. The Asia reached Owon Sound
at ll1 p.m. Wednesday night, and remained about au hour, taking in passengers and freight. I saw seven parsons buy tickets at Owen Sound, live
nion and two women. Ono of the
women had a child about a year old
witii her. Two of tlie gehtlemen looked liko commercial traveller.*], the others liko laboring men. I know nono
of their names. There may havo boen
more yot en board there, but theso are
all I observed. ] got a stateroom along
willi two other young ladies—one a
Misa MoNnh, who got on board at Col-
lingwood. I d" not remember the
name of the o.Iipi*. They wore not
companions, but ilie rooms wero so
full that the cabin-maid put them in
tho double berth, and gavo me the
other. I went to bod before lhe boat
touched lVesque Isle, but was awake,
Tiio mate, Macdonald, told me in the
morning that they took in hay, but no
passengers, nt I'resipie Isle. The mate
waa my cousin. It did not get very
rough till about eight in the tin-ruing.
I was up then', but was sea-sick, aud
took no bronkfast, I saw four women
with children in the cabin; one had
four, ono had two, and two had ono
eaoh. There Were two families who
took deck pasaajjo. 1 doticcd the four
women and thoir children particularly,
as the women wero ull sick and the
cabin-maid waa feeding tho children,
Thoro may have boon other ladies in
the staterooms. I kept out in the open
air, aud did not go to my stateroom
un',il a few moments beforo the boat
weot down. I knew there was danger
before tlia.. I saw people putting on
lifo-presurvors. I laid down, and could
nnt move if the boat were sinking.
Tlio boat rolled on hor Bide and I.
thought it was sinking. I jumped up
and wont into tho adjoining stateroom
whore the woman with two children
was, found her asleep, woko hot*, but
think sho never left llio calin. Her
children wero small, one about two
years aud tho other a child iu arms.
I then put on a lifo-prouervcr and sat
by the cabin door.
THK VESSEL  HSAVILY lOADED.
Before I wont to my stateroom I
asked the mute if thoro wtis great danger. Ho said there was a very-heavy
sea, but they had already thrown some
of the horses overboard, and would
throw oil* all the freight they could,
and that thoy woro very heavy loaded.
X could hear a great noise mado by the
horse'}. I had hopes tlie beat would
bo saved till I saw the water coining
into thu cabin. I was on the upper Bide
of tho boat. She wus now on In-r side,
and I took hold of tho rail, and slid
down into tho water and sank, and
came up by the side of tho captain's
boat.
TUB  1KUTS WITHOUT OAltS,
Flu took me by tho wrist and the
niato helpud to pull me in. My stateroom companions wore both in the
sumo boat, but ho other womoii or
children. I saw tho other two life-
boats, both full. Tho captain and
mate had oars, aud tried to take euro
of our boat. Tho stuumoi' wis now
down, und wreckage wus floating all
round. I saw tho other two bouts upset twice. Each timo tho number was
largely roducod. Tho threo boats drift*

Success or Failure?
Actuated doubtless bya'iefeslre to
Bay pleasant ttiirrga, ottr "o»nt*topo-
rary of the Colonist labors bard'to
make it appear that the recent Pi*o-
vinoiul exhibition was a success.   In
so   fav as the legitimate object of
such efforts is concerned, tlielf. need
bo no1 hesitation in -asserting that the
late exhibition was a 'failure.    This
is true both as respects the number,
quantity and quality of exhibits and
the gercral  management.    It is no
satisfaction  to   us 'to write these
words; but they aro true, and It is
in the interest of reform that they
are written.   The whole thing waa
altogether to* horsey, if we may be
permitted   the expression.   Horse-
racing constituted the main feature.
Hundreds of dollars of what was
voted by the Legislature and received as admission fees wove wrongly
swallowed up in horse-racing, man-
) nces, base-ball and tho like.    Much
of the attention of the Managers was
absorbed in liko manner, to the neglect of legitimate duties connected
with the exhibition.   As an illustration of how the affairs of the exhibition were mismanaged, or neglected,
it mny be stated that such ancles as
fresh butter were not adjudged till
fav on in the third day, while fruit
and many other things were not adjudged   till   the fourth day!   Tbe
pviuos for live stock and agricultural
produce were altogether too small
to operate as an incentive to people
in  the more remote districts.   We
know very well that it is not the
'actual amount of money prizes which
.sbonl.1 be looked at altogether] but
it   is   iindoniablo   lhat where  the
prizes are paltry, it operates as a.diB-
couragoment to those who have to
employ expensive methods of reaching the ground.    Not only were the
prizes small, but, to make matters
worse, we ave informed that only
ninety per cent, was paid, owing to
the feet that there was not enough
in the   treasury!   What a shame!
Under tho name of the "British Columbia Agricultural Association," one
thousand dollars was appropriated
from the Provincial Treasury for
purposes of an agricultural exhibition.   How much moro money was
.available we have not the means of
knowing, but there must have been
considerable, as Wo ave oredibly informed  ono thousand   dollars was
taken nt the gate in admission fees
(he li.st day, and there would probably bo as much move taken during
the three subsequent days.   It ie
ques.ior.able how far the Managers
were justified in squandering the admission money on horse-races, footraces, games at ball and the like;
but they certainly had no right to
spend the Legislative grant in that
way.   We shall have more to say on
this  subject another time;  meanwhile perhaps the Colonist will be
good enough, or perhaps we should
call upon the Managers to publish a
statement showing exactly how much
money went for purposes properly
belonging to agricultural improve-
ment'and hqw much was squandered
on tomfoolery having no legitimate
connec ion with the professed object
of the Association.
low his Ministers, under such circumstances, to put off meeting the
new House till the new year. It'
should have been met eve now.
Whenevev there exists strong ground
for doubting that * Ministry possesses the 'Confidence of a newly
elected House the point should be
submitted 'to the crucial test provided by the constitution at the earliest
convenient moment. The vacancy
unhappily created in the Tale District might possibly be regarded as
affording an excuse for delay in convening the Legislature; but that excuse has been removed, and the proclamation calling tbe House together
sWM -be issued without delay, In
addrt*r»n 'to 'constitutional reasons,
tbere"are not wanting cogent reasons
of policy Vhy this should be done.
Should it happen,'as it ia pretty certain to happen, tbift the new House
will not sustain the .present Government, a new one must be formed;
the new Minister! must seek re election, and they must be allowed a
considerable time lo {annulate a
policy with whieh to «orae before
the House. But if the Legislature
should not be oonvened till January
or February, the delay neoessarily
occasioned by a change of Government would throw legislation into
spring, if not into summer, involving
confusion and serious inconvenience
to the country. Looking at the matter in the light of mere expediency,
it is obviously of very great import-
arte tbat the Legislature should be
called together without further delay. Looking at it from a oonstitu
lional standpoint, it should have
beeu called together long ago.
Riri'orM Notes.
There appears to be a very general
feeling that the people of the Lower
Fraser' must take the agricultural exhibition business in hand themselves.
After the experiences of this year there
will Lie very littlo disposition amongst
our farmers and dairymen to send exhibits to the Island; and there can be
no doubt thnt there is, in the Valley
of the Lower Fraser, material for successful organization and interesting
and useful annual exhibitions. Next
year's Provincial exhibition is, by
agreement, to be hero at any rate, and
it may be well to oonsider Whether
that should not be made lhe commencement ef annual exhibitions on
the bank of the Fraser,
found that tmffic'Stis interrupted for a
longer period in 1870 than in 1882,
notwithstanding that the damage caused by the floods was very much greater
on the latter occasion than on the
former. These are facts susceptible
of easy proof, and of which proof will
doubtless be forthcoming at the proper
time. Meanwhile the candidate has
all the advantage of espousing an ex-
cusible popular prejudice.

Our friends at Nanaimo are ardently
desirous that Her Royal Highness the
Princess Louise should accompany His
Excellency the Governor-General in
his visit to tliat important ooal centre.
There is every probability of their very
natural and becoming, desire beinff
gratified. The sail from Viotoria to
Nanaimo is of itself a most enjoyable
one,—passing, aa it does, through one
of the most lovely arohlnellsgoM in the
world. And the oily of Nanaimo, including Departure Bay with its charming scenery, would well repay a less
enjoyable trip, To miss visiting Nanaimo would indeed be a "want" in
the otherwise complete programme of
Her Royal Highness. We do not think
there is much doubt about the gracious
Princess accompanying the Marquis to
that interesting point, and the loyal
people of Nanaimo would do well to
make their arrangements accordingly.

Js it not about time the new Legislature wee convened! It Is now
some three months since the elections were held. The Opposition,
with every appearance of reason,
claimed to have carried a decided
majority of tho ridings. Tho Gov-
ornmont made a pretense of believing that they were sustained. Considering the-weakness of the Government in the old House and the number of constituencies that rejected
their candidates, it was very generally expected that Mr, Beaven
would have felt it his duty to resign.
Had he consulted his own dignity
nnd tho constitution, instead of his
pocket, lio would undoubtedly have
adopted that course. Seeing he did
not, a strong-minded Governor might
lmvo either invited him to resign or
insisted upon immediate consultation
of the now House. No Governor
having a proper appreciation of the
Bpirit of the constitution would nl-

Sauce."—The Ancients were renowned no less for the delicacy of the preparation of food than the strifo of warfare. Not alone was their attention
directed to the essential clement of
mankind, but to tho seasoning thereof
and considered that unpalatable which
hud not a savory unction. Their great
aim for preparing food was for tbo nutrition and assimilating of tlie organs
by easy digestion; therefore a sauce
had to be created for tbe palate which
afterwards became a great desideratum
in the cuisine, and he who would produce a flavoring appetizer was considered no less a god in history than
tho laurel-wreathed victor of the battle-field. The Greeks and Romans
carried this to some perfection, the
Fronch took it up aa an art, the English sought competition for tho palm
which was gained by the manufacturers of the Montserrat Lime Fruit Juice
Sauce,which is not a distinctive sauce,
but is accustomed to all dishes, nfakiifg
them palatable and relishing viands.

The folloi.-ing extracts from "VomV
diarrhea of words without meamnu,
aro given as specimens of the man's
windy nothingness:—"A resident for
24 years., aud a ropresontai ivo of Main-

I think 1 may without vanity, and I
hope without rudeness, claim to ba a
British Columbian. * * * And although, one may wisely refrain from
demanding of any Government the accomplishment, of impossibilities, yet it
would bo my duty to insist upon a
more equitable distribution of the
money expended on Public Works."
But he comes down to sober truth, al-
thorigh he does not tell alt the truth,
when he says;—"I have no interest in
Vancouver Island distinct from the
interest of the entire Province." The
Benicnce would have been Complete if
he had added; "And I hnve no it'teres.!;

i Third Party.
In view of the disposition to tvim
to the liquor power manifested by
both Republicans and Democrat;),
the Prohibition League of Calilorriu
have determined lo put a third party
in tbe political field. At a convention field last month eleven resolutions were passed, laying down the
basis of the new parly, amongst
which were tbe following:—
Third—Wo declare that tho manufacture, sale and use of alcoholic
driiks is tbe greatest evil of the
country and the age. That tbe traffic enslaves women and degrades
children, debases youth and wrecks
m-u'liood, cotrupts ballots and injures public Ber vice, peoples prisons
and fills it'suue bsylums, breeds paupers aid criminals, and thereby imposes enormous bl'U'dous of taxation;
destroys capital and ruins labor; degrades, impoverishes and danUoys
our homes, ntid now threatens,
through oigunized nud criminal con
spiiaoies, to subvert law and order.
So believing, we declare the cardinal
principles of our patty to be the pro**
hibitioo, by constitutional amendment, of tbe manufacture of ull alcoholic liquors not demanded for
medicinal, meclmuical or scientific
use, aud the Vegulatioh by law, under severe penalties, of the sale of
alcohol io liquors for such uso, and
the absolute ard total prohibition of
the sale for any other purposes,,
Fourth—Tbe dofiont resistarce to
law by the liquor-dealers of tliis
Stale and their associates; their at-
te.opted aggressions for tbo destruction of out* most sneed laws and
b'gbeifc interests, together with the
Btibaffviency of the Democratic and
Republican parties to tlteae lawbreakers and law-defiers, have forced
upon us an issue of the greatest importance to the State, which should
and must be met with determined
courage and intense devotion to the
best and highest interests of tbe people. Tliis we aro now determined
fully and erefgetically to do.

Council adjourned till November 7,
at 10 o'clock a. in.
Caiilrtit.
We beg to call the attention of the
trade and the public to the well-kuown
minlity and elegance of finish of our
Gold Cases, guaranteed by us to be of
eighteen karat Gold, U. S. Mint assay,
or of fourteen karat Gold, as may be
stamped, and also to our mode of selling
tbo same, charging only for tho Actual
Wbioiit of the gold used, nnd nob tor
the base metal comprised in springs, key
pipes, filling of crown, otc. To illustrate
which a tag accompanies each one of our
Gold Cases, winch plainly indicates not
only the gross weight of the case, but
also the Net weight of tho gold.
In explanation of tlio above we desiro
to say tliat the old plan of charging for
the grass Weight of the case, as if it were
till gold, worked well enough as long as
the manufacturers wore content with the
amount of brass and steel actually ro
quired in its construction; but when the
business was degraded into a contest as
to. who should get the most base metal
into the least quantity of gold aud call it
u Gold cose, then the time camo when,
in tho interest of dealers in American
.Watches, it btieame necessary to adopt a
plan of selling, showing the buyer exactly how much Golo each case contained.
To avoid imposition, purchasers of Waltham Watches will observe* that every
fiennino.^Vatch, whether gold or .silver;
•ears our trade mark on both cose and
movement. Gold cases are stamped "A,
W. Co. I hnd guarantee certificates accompany them. Silver cases arc stamped
"A. M. Watch Co., Waltham, Mass.,
sterling silver," and are accompanied by
f;unrantee certificates, signed K. I'. Rob-
tins, treasurer. Tho name ''Waltham"
is plainly engraved upon all movements,
irrespective of cither distinguishing
marks. This caution is rendered necessary by reason of f no fact that our cases
are frequently separated froni our movements, oild put iipdtl tt-ortlih-i-s movements' of other makors aiul vice, rersa,
thus affecting injuriously the performance of the watc(ies, ami vitiating our
guarantee, which is intended to cover
only our complete watches wholly made
by us. Id is necessary also, because it is
bo notorious us to bo a public scandal
that there is great fraud in, the metal
quality,of both gold aiid silver cases as
now goiiemlty sold. We havo demonstrated by frequent assays that many
fold and silver cases offered in the mar*
et are. debased from 10 to 20 per cent,
from the .quality they assume to be.
This is a fraild tnion tho purchaser, and
accounts for the low prico at whicli such
cased watches havo been sold.— American Watch Cobii'anv, Waltham, Mass.

ed together for a short piece. Heard
the othor bonis call tn tho captain for
an oar. One of tho two boats had no
■oars, one had ono oar, aud our boat
""■"two. Tho captain could spare none.
Our boat went along quito nicely for
some minutes. The others capsized
almost immediately. They had nothing to help themselves with.
THS TWO BQATS CAPSIZED.
I waa sitting in iho bow of our boat
looking back towards tho wreck, and
saw tho oilier two boats tip ovor threo
times. When I caw them last they
were empty, no one even clinging to
the sides, I feel sure that noire wero
saved except Thikisa and 1; finally,'*.ur
boat upset, aud we lost both oars. Wo
were then at the mercy of tlio waves,
and upset four times in all. There
wero eighteen in before wo upset, The
"'two women were lust tlie first time.
It got calmer near dark, and tho bout
did not-upset again. About this time
wo picked up a float'jug oar; but all
wore ioo exhausted to use it.
■flANC'Si", TO TUB LIKE LINK.
Whei the mate helped mo in ho told
mo (o hold on to tlie lifo lino whatever
happened, mid I novel' let go. When
tho boat upset, I hung on nnd came up
with it. None of tho fivo men died
until after dark. The mate got up on
his kneos and said ho could see land,
and tins chuerod us all. The Captain
seemed very sad, and seldom spoke.
Hone had hats ou and none coats on
TjuI Tii-kiss. I had neither hat nor
shawl"; wo wore all in water up to onr
knees, but i'ho water was not up to (he
seats. Tf we had had n bailing-dish we
could have baled out tho boat after the
Boa went down, but had nothing to do
it with.
LOCKED IS A MAMi OKASP.
The mon all died quietly. Thoy
seemed to go i.o sleep. Tlio mate put
his hand up io my face in 'the dark,
and asked if it, wns mo. I said "Yes."
My linir was Hying around and he seized it in his death grasp and pulled
down my bead. I askod the captain,
who wiarnenr lo release my hair. Be
did so, and the ma.'osoon breathed his
last. Wo saw a light, Byng Inlet,
and cou.1'1 seo it all night, but wero
drifting south. Shortly after tho male
died ths captain laid his head down.
I tried to avutiso him, but. he was dead.
■I think this was about midnight.
■J'-.lfi TWO SO.I.V1.VOBS.
Mi*. TiijkisB and I kept up a conversation. J was nervous, nnd feared that
Mr. TinUas would lay liis head down
lite iho res.. I. nskeu liim to come to
tho bow, but he snid wo would balance
tho boat better by remaining ns we
wero. and that ho would not go to
steep.
LAND   IW SIGHT.
Daylight finally dawned, and revealed tho shore near by. Tinkiaa worked
the boat towards tho shore with tho
oar we had picked up. It was n beautiful warm morning, and the sun warmed us and dried our clothes. Wo got
on tho rocks shortly after sunrise, and
atlemptod to walk across tbe island, as
wo thought wc might Iind somo houses,
I could not walk, and we returned to
the boat. Tlukisstook the bodies out,
I could not holp him. Ho then took
•ut some of the water, mid pried the
■boat off with tho oar. Ho then worked
tho bout down ih« beach, but made
poor headway. Dark coining on, I
was afraid it would get rough, and wo
thon landed, broke boughs for our
beds, put some undei; on, b-jiuo over
us, and I slept some, but was nervous,
Wo were up befora sunrise, got into
the boat, it was calm then, rowed a
short piece p.nd gave Up, went aslmre,
laid down on iho rocks uud went: io

ANOTHER A^O UHB"iPKOTED ACCOUNT.
P-ETfir.uor.o', Sept, 21.—While tho
deputation from PortHope was yesterday proceeding to Pe'erboro' to assist
ill the reception I o I) is Lordship liisiiop
Jamut, a singular scoue took placo. A
discussion was going on in one jv.rt of
the car, which nobody minded until
one man's voice rose higher and higher-
and thore remained; while .hose
around him became mule and profoundly attentive. Not that tbo voico
was sweet or pleasant to hear; not because tho words wore eloquent or well
inionated. On tho contrary the voico
was thick and guttural, and whon he
spoke French it was, if possible, worse
than English. Ho was au Italian, nnd
to make a long story short, ho claimed
to be one who escaped from tho lost
Asia. Hence iho attention he received.
His name ia Henri Gauvaifl, a native
of Savoy, with a French naino. Ho
had lived many years in tlie Provinco
of Now Brunswick, but luttorly has
done considerable lako lumbering, and
is half a Bailor and hnlf a woodman.
For the rest ho is of middle n-ie, etout,
and has an u*.;ly. but un huuejtt faco lo
look upon.
■ A THItlLLlNO  NAMIATIVB.
Thia is his story as woll as he could
make himsolf understood in his low,
broken language -two broken languages:
"I was sent on board tbo Asia from
Collingwood, though much ugain.it iny
will, as ono of Mr. BtoDougall's fore-
men. I was in oharso of a lot of lumber going to French Hivcr; I had my
suspicions of the Asia, and was therefore very cautious; I noticed that whilo,
owing to hor build and tlio way sho
was laden, tho forepart wan thirty feot
out of the water, tlio stem was some-
times plungod into-Uio lako, and thou
she renisecf to obey lior helm nnd rolled
in the trough of tho sea, evory strong
puff of wind that camo, nnd it blow
Wrathful, I toll you, wheeling tho forepart round until sho actually moved us
on a pivot. This lookod bad, I am a
sailor as well us a lumberman, and ru-
Bttived to save my life ore tho bout
went down and the Bupreme struggle
for lifo commenced.   I went aft and
seized ono of tho life-preservers, which
drew somo attention, aud, as I did not
wish bringing on a crisiB, I pretended
to merely examine it.   Just then a
terrific wave rose up us high as the
mast, and launched its fury against
the boat,   I believed it washed several
overboard; I know fifty or sixty tons
of it rolled down tho hutches aud wont
into tho encine-room; I saw a dense
column of steam ascending, and con-
eluded all was lost.    Tho captain or
some other officer came forward aud
ordered tho hutches to bo battened
down, but no ono heeded him, and ho
commenced looking out for himself.
At all events he seized two lifo-buoys,
but whether he.jumped overboard just
(hen I know not; the confusion wns
perfectly appalling; chore were more
than a hundred people on board, half
French und half English, and they ull
spoko or screamed at oncoj I jumped
overboard with the life-preserver and
struck out fm-shore;  a woman and a
little girl, Bfeetningly half crazy, clung
to me, and I did not cast them ol)'; I
encouraged them, (hough Ihey retarded
my movements; the woman sometimes
held mo by the legs, sometimes by the
shoulders} when a few minuleB swimming I looked buck and saw the Asia
heaving and tiisning  unmeaningly; 1
saw bunts thrown out; there were five
un board; a wave came between me,
and when it receded   the Asia was
gone; when about two hours in the
water a smuggling boat saw us, took
us on board, and uari-ied us to Colling
wood; the lady, who seemed   to bo
rich, gavo me -Job and also some money
to the smuggler.   They wont to the
lio.isin House and I saw them no more.
As   for   me, fooling   miserably chill
and eompletely exhausted, I took a
few   hookers and slept for eighteen
hours.    I was anxious to return  to
Garden Hill, whero I am employed at
lumbering,   by Mr. Buck, and after
two days' rest camo horo to Port Hope
on ihe Northern Railroad.   I am woll
known   around   bore.     Mr. Thomas
Dolun, of Petorboro', by my sido, bus
of^u'ii sold me clothes; in fact ho sold
mo these now on me, and which  I
wore on tho Asia.    1 have also purchased articles from Mr. H. Lebrun,
seated just opposite ino.    In fact I am
pretty   well   known  about  theso  regions."
''But tell mo why didn't you mako
your case known nt Collingwood; tho
people ware very anxious to sue uny of
those who might have survived? A.—-
I did tell a French reporter, but ho
did not understand mo. I did not like
loafing round relating my misfortunes;
I had money in my pocket und wanted
to get buck to Garden Hill, I have
just arrived, as you see, and am now
o!F to Pefcqrboro" to see Mr. James
Buck. I havo also boen foreman for
Messrs. Irwin & Boyd, of Peterboro1,
who will vouch for my oharucter, as
also with those present."
"Whore did iho smuggling boat go V
A.—"I know not. I cared about nothing just then in this world but rest.
I was much exhausted."
"There is to be a Court of Enquiry
into the thing; are you prepared to
swear to all you have said without
hesitation?"
"Mr. Dolan and Mr. Lebrun," said
our representative, "what is this man's
characior V A.—"I havo known him
for years and done business with him;
I consider him perfectly reliable nnd
veracious." "I am of ilie same opinion," said Mr, Lebrun, "though 1 confess hia story is an extraordinary ouo."
••Gontlomen," said Gauvais in an
angry strain, "my heart is boating yet.
What do I cure about your newspapers ?"
Not feeling satisfied about the steam
rising, iho Globe representative asked
him what tlio engineer did under tho
ciroums lances. "Tho engineer attempted to go below, but only descended a short oistaube, when he returned,
H pallor like that of death on liis face.
He wont towards ihe atom, and the
pnssongerB followed him, watching liis
movements as eagerly as wolves. It
was my impression he was looking
after tliolife-pro-iorvers. I imagine he
j'iniped overboard pretty near tlie samo
time us I did, and was drowned."
"Did the smugglers' bout make any
effort to resouo the drowning women
and mon?" A.—"No, they hud all
gone below."
"How were the women treated generally beforo tho crisis?" A.—"Vory
well, indeed; though of course 1 don't
know what happened after my exit."
"And you were going where ?'' A.—
"To French River with provisions and
implements fur Ihu&hanties."
"Who were the other foromon?"
A. — "Aleck McDonald was one; I
don't know iho others. A lock was a
splendid fellow; he jumped nut ioo
soon wiih the lifo preservers; I swain
threo miles boforo iho bout picked us
up. The woman- a rich lady I ahould
say, was very fat. Tho steamer Asia
essayed to put hor head towards tho
shore, but without success. Sho waa
doomed; if the steam did not kill the
engineer, he would have done something."
"Why, I thought you left him behind you living r A.—"It is u mistake. I mount the mate. Thore wero
boats on each sido, aud one ut the
slorn. Of course tho hardest fight
would be for tho ln&t."
"Why have you not sought out Mr.
McDougall ?" A.—"I havo just como
from Collingwood, and cannot do all
things at onco, I may say that I tremble from cpld and fear whon I think of
that fatal night of ours, aftor the sinking of tho Asia. Mr. McDougall telegraphed that bin raft, on which I had
boen, was broken up on Lako Ontario*"
A gontlomun named Mr. John Ly-
don, of Port Hope, told your reporter
that he behoved tho story implicitly,
us ho could in a manner corroborate it.
He know, for instance, that Mr. Guu-
voia was foreman for Mr. McDougall,
that Mr. McDougall had on board tho
Asia §0,000 worth of provisions, tools,
and lumber for tlio shanties at French
River, and that Gauvois aud McDonald wore foremen.
"What ia your opinion of tho story,
Mr. Lydonj" A.—"I think ho is too
stupid to invent such a beautiful romance You may be sure ho is a survivor. "
