The Gloucester fishermen are in
troublj again. A letter has just
been received from Newfoundland
stating that it is forbidden by law to
both natives and foreigners to catch
herring after January. A copy of the
law—which must be a new one-
accompanied the letter. Every fall
many vessels of the mackerel fleet
are in the habit of fitting out for
the Newfoundland frozen herring
trade, the return cargoes being disposed of in Boston, New York,
Philadelphia and other large markets. The vessels usually carry
with them stocks of merchandise
which are exchanged for the herrings. As the mackerel Ashing was
a failure this year and the vessel-
owners expected to makeup for their
lossby a profitable frosen herring
trade much dissatisfaction is felt at
Gloucester over the announcement
contained in the letter.—Mail
A delicious story reaches me from
Germany, aprops of Prince Bismarck. During his recent stay at Mar-
ienbad the chancellor was in the
habit of taking long walks unattended, and one day finding himself
somewhat far from the town took
the shortest cat book. His way lsd
him across some fields, and the
Prince inarched vigorously forward,
forgetful of the fact that he was
trespassing. Suddenly he was hailed in loud stentorian tones, and on
looking back saw a stout county-
woman pursuing him. The indignant proprietress of the fields accused
him to his face of his offence, and
declared that she would follow
him and give him in oharge. She
proved as good as her word, and
tramped after the chancellor until
the high rood was reached and a
police-officor came, in.. vieiy.. She,
worthy woman formally made her
complaint, and the police-officer was
about to arrest the offender. Struck
by the resemblance of the trespasser to a certain high functionary,
the police-officer cautiously demanded hiB name. On hearing the name
the policeman was simply paralyzed
with fear, and the overbold countrywoman, gathering up her skirts, fled
precipitately. Naturally the police
officer was reluctant to take the
oharge, but Prince Bismarck insisted upon going to the station. When
there he charged himself with the
offence of trespass and paid the fine
customary in such matters. In
addition to this the Prince sent a
present by way of consolation to the
woman whose lsnd he had invaded.
—London St. Stephen's Review.
New gold fields aro constantly
being discovered which promise to
remove, for the present, all fears of
any very large diminution of the
regular supply. The Alaska mines
are in a lusty infancy. In Columbia, Venezuela, Guiana and Bolivia
gold-mining lias taken a new lease
of life. The South African mines
are, some of them, marvelously rich,
and now ones are rewarding the en-
prise of prospectors, A few months
ago attention was called to tho gold-
fields of the Amoor river. Thero is
some trouble about their development owing to tbe jealousy of the
Chinese and Siberian uutlioritim,
but that is a matter susceptible of
settlement In Australia there is
the promise of the opening of extensive and rich diggings. The latest report of valuable discoveries
comes from Sumatra. A few years
ago a Frenchman named Wallon
came upon abundant traces of gold
in the native kingdom of Aebeen.
Wallon lost his life in the course of
his explorations, but news of his discovery found its way to civilization
and recently a Russian adventurer
named Hendenstroth followed in his
foot stops. He encountered great
difficulties, but finally, with the aid
of u native Prince, Made his way
into lire interior and prospected the
region, His experience was most
encouraging. Gold was found in
large quantities. Tho report comer
from him that in many localities the
ground yields from 200 to 300
francs to the cubic meter. Hr.
Hcdenslrom found traces of old
workings in the gold-fields, and tradition has it that King Solomon
drew precious metal faom Sumatra.
Be that as it may, the Russian
prospector after fresh difficulty, obtained a concession from the native
authorities, nnd it is probable that
steps will soon be taken te open the
now gold-field.—S. F. Bulletin.

THE CHINESE QUESTION.
San Fkancisco, Nov. 26. —The
Call this morning hu a long editorial
on the Ohinese entering the United
States over the Canadian border, the
facta of whioh were mentioned in these
dispatches yesterday, lt says: "A
grave feature arises from the seeming
inability of our government to cope
with the evil. The whole stretch of .
country trom Vancouver to Montreal
ii available for the illicit transit of
Chinamen into the United States. It
it impossible to guard so long a lint,
and alien United States officials do
catch a Chinaman in the act of smuggling themselves into this- country
what are they going to do about it.
When this question wu put to tha
government at Washington, in reference to some Chinamen who had surreptitiously crept into Washiogton
Territory, and whom the Canadian
authorities refused to take bock without payment of (50. hssd money, the
sapient reply came 'Put them in jail,'
Nobody' in the interior department
was aware that such a doom would
would suit the Chinese. It is suggested
that we ask Oanada to adopt our exclusion set. We can ask; but why
■hould it comply? The dominion parliament is nut concerned about excluding Ohinese. It knows they will
not stay in Canada; but it is very
gravely concerned about building up
tbe Canadian Pacific line of steamers
and the great. Canadian seaport at
Port Moody to rival San Francisco..
Sir John Macdonald would tell Mr. •
Bayard that Canada will take can of
her own interests, and will leave the
United 'States to take ean ef theirs.
It strikes us this new development in
the Chinese question is of rather more
importance than the points upon
which Senator Mitchell, of Oregon,
tells the Pacific coast delegation they
must concentrate their strength.
GERMAN DIPLOMACY.
SanFkancisc'0,Nov.26 -AdviCss'thls
morning from Samoa show thst affaire
there are still in an unsettled condition. The Germany naval commander
has demanded a large sum from King »
Tamasee forthe assistance which the
Germans recently offered him against
Malietoa. This new move of the Germans to make Tamisee pay for being
used as a tool to their interests is
probably the only excuse to depose
Tamasee before proclaiming absolute
German sovereignty over the Samoan
Islands.

A great iriiiny people havo ^n.
dered at the action of E'jy, Mr.
Spurgeoii in separating him jelf from
Baptist Union, nnd tlio facts seem
to havo beon misapprehended by
some pcophr who supposcr thnt tho
eminent preacher is now actually
severed Worn thoHaptisteommimion.
The causes of Mr. Spurgeon's notion
rtrrr very plainly sot out in a communication to n London papor.
Finding that a great many members
nf the Baptist Union seemed to have
abandoned tho simple doctrine of
salvation by faith, and tho perfect
sufficiency of tlio atonement to rehabilitate fallen man, and were
speculating upon the probability of
future probation and other innovations which appeared to him subversive of pure faith and calculated
to destroy spiritual life, ho reached
the conclusion that he ought no
longer to be associated with nn organization which seemed to bo sowing the seeds of heresy. Mr. Spur-
goon is still a Baptist, and it is those
from whom he has withdrawn who
are open to the charge of having
weakened the church.

It is nnnounceel that George
Francis Train has becomo disgusted
with the boustetl freedom of tho
United States, and 1ms determined
to take up bis residence in ono of
the eastern Canadian provinces.
George has been lately airing his
views publicly. Of course he was
in 'sympathy with the anarchist
doctrines promulgated by Mojt and
the Chicago agitators. Most is a pestilent disturber of all sound government, and .George Francis Train was
his natural colleague. These two
men undertook to get up an agitation in favor of pardoning the condemned anarchists who were awaiting the erection of the  gallows  at
Ohicogcnndintheirpublicutternnces
they did not spare the civil authorities and the tyranny of law.
Most's utterances were of such an
incendiary character that he fell into the hands of the authorities, and
is now awaiting trial. Train probably thinks discretion the better
part of valor, and fears he may meet
with Most's fate if he remains within reach of the American eagle.
But if this hairbrained fire-brand
thinks it will be safe for him to
carry on his treasonable agitation in
Canada, ho may be rudely undeceived. Canadians are no fonder of
dynamite than the people of the
United States, and they are not in
the habit of letting" criminals slip
through their hands if they can help
it. The authority of government in
Oanada is as firmly fixed and the
laws are as vigorously defended as
in any part of the continent. If
George JMraols Trtitt'/jomes to Oanada and expeots to' maintain a
healthy existence, therefore, he will
have to drop the anarchist agitation
or take the risk of finding himself
with a,f ope about his neck.
It might be somewhat risky to
venture upon congratulating the
people bf Manitoba upon the final
ratification of the contract for the
completion of the Red River Valley
Railway. The arrangement is said
to be final; and after so much humbug one feels disposed to accept the
announcement in good faith. We
have always held the opinion that
tho construction and operation of
this road, if it is maintained as an
efficient and independent line, will
have a most beneficial influence on
both Manitoba and the C. P. R.
There seems no reason to doubt that
the C.P.R. freight rates have been n
source of discouragement to the people of Manitoba and the Northwest.
Every cent added to the cost of carrying grain to the seaboard was a
cent taken off tho price received by
the farmers, and when it came to
be known that wheat brought higher
prices at places across the boundary
than could be obtained at points in
Manitoba and the the Northwest
equally distant from the world's
market, the faet was industriously
used against the Canadian territory,
It ia a well known fact that thousands of Canadians now srttlcd south
of the national boundary would have
remained in Canada but for the drawbacks resulting from railway monopoly, high tariff, and illiberal land
regulations. As soon as these disadvantages have been removed, we
may expect to see Manitoba and tho
Northwest filling up with great
rapidity. The resources of the
country are beyond dispute, and it
will not be long before the 0. P. R.
and its rivals will find themselves
solely taxed to get away with the
increased business resulting from the
improved condition of the country.
The Canadian road may find it necessary to reduce its tariff, but we
feel sure it will find ample compensation for any loss from this cause
in tlie large increase of passenger
and freight traffic that is certain to
follow the opening of the country to
railway competition.

A Worthy Example.
The temperance people throughout
the country will commend Mrs. Cleveland for not offering wine at tho luncheon she gave six young ladies of
Washington recently. It had been
the custom to serve several kinds on
the occasions, and this was the first
gathering of any pretensions where it
was absent. The aotion of the Woman's Temperance Union at St. Louis
in referenco to Mrs. Whitney's luncheon to the President's bride was remembered by all who went to the
White House tho other day, but those
who knuw, say it did not make the
slightest difference with Mrs. Clove-
land, who would not sorvo wine under any circumstances. She does not
drink it herself and does not believe it
appropriate to servo wine at gatherings
of young ladies. As the President's
wife sets the fashions, it may  be  ex-
{tected that tlie example will be fol-
owed by the official social of the capital, and it will certainly do no harm to
the world at large.
Kod Noses as Danger Signals.
Why is a dram drinker's nose red ?
Tho question is answered by Dr. J. B.
Johnson, a Washington physician, who
says that the dram-drinker's heart
beats about 13 limes oftouer in the
minute than the heart of nue who does
not drink alcohol. Tho arteries, iu
consequence of this increased heart
action, carry tho blood to the nose
quicker than .the veins curry it back.
The blood, therefore, remains congested iu the overfilled vessels, nnd the
nose and face as well thus become
habitually red. So stagnant is tho
blood that when the dram-drinkers
nose meets n sudden current of cold air
it immediately turns purple nnd so remains until warm nir restores the color.
So the red nose is caused ly congestion. Every organ of tho body is in a
similar state—a warning of an impending fate not to be avoided.
Making Liquor Selling Disgraceful
The other day news came that the
Missouri Masons were to enforce a rule
excluding from their order all saloonkeepers. The aotion of this most powerful of secret societies, Buplomenting
that of the Knight of Labor and all
temperance societies, cannot but have
a mighty influence in the right direction. You cannot prevent men from
Belling liquor by making the act disgraceful. It is a fact that operations
tho most deb-wed have been willingly
followed if the pecuniary rewards wore
huge enough. But you cun prevent
young men from associating with
those upon whom society has put its
ban. When you make liquor Belling
disgraceful, you make the suluou even
less roi-pi-ctable than it is at present
as a place of resort.
 .— _„-*_♦. ^	
The Drink Evil In France.
The French senate recently discussed
tho report of tho committee on consumption of spirits. M. Claude said
th.it tho committee had como tu tlie
conclusion that the drinking of spirits
in Franco hnd reached auch a height
as to be a social dangor. Alcohol was
essentially a dutiablo article, and it
behoved the state to prevent its excessive consumption, nt the same time
securing thu utmost profit to the
treasury by the suppression of adulteration and other frauds. M. Rouier
approved tho committee's report He
paid the government would prosecute
fraud -wherever discovered, and that
the revenue collectors would be instructed to take vigorous action against
imposition,

Hns it ever set a standard of business character whioh is recognized in

Has it aver given society a single

Their Hawaiian Horn..
Knlafcnua meant "Day of Battle," and
hla k.njwhip litis realized Hi fornc, lor on
tlitM'Tyday o{ his election to the throho
in Ft binary, 1S74, a riot ocoured which
was only qutrlltd liy tho presence of threo
inon oMvar, whose crews—seven hundred a.l lolrl—rushed to the rescue anil
sulitu-rl the turinoi). Now he has just
i been Introduirmi to a revolution. Kalakaua is s r_d. and let it come to au
rltorn .t.vo U-I.woen signing the now
constitution tunl clearing out, depend
upon rt Iris big inntter-of-faot signature
will soon tlitikii its appearance.
In so petty n l.iirrtrloin nue would hardly look 'or r-n sr n ious a royal residence
nsthelo'atri 1'n.nnr. liy tho way, there
Is no iii.n.•!• Hi ry modr'sty about the
Hawaiians in their selection ol mimes, aa
"lolar i" tni'iuyl'iiliicn ol Heaven," and
jfnrriitfll niiigiulicenee is synonymous
wilh paradisacal In'auty, certainly the
appellation is deserved. How proud
Kaliikatia must have felt four years ago
when ho left the little one-story building,
built of coral, that had so long done duty
as a royal home, nnd was Installed in the.
splendid edilice that now graces Honolulu.
Ihe foundation stone of Iolanl Palaco
was laid witii full Masonic ceremoni™
Kiilnkaua being a prominent .Mnsnn) on
Que.11 l.upiolani'sbirthday, the lastday
in the year 1S711. It sianrls on an iin-
.: mensa block, closo to tho heart ofthe
riiv, hounded hy King, Hicham and
1 ikelike streets and.Palace walk, The
palace itself covers au area of 140x120
feet, being thus nearly square. It consists of two storre.i and a basement. It
has a large central tower and a smaller
tower on each oi the four corners. From
the basj to the top of the central tower it
is Si feet high. The original surmised
cost was $5(1,000. but by ISS0 §40,1X10; had
been expended and a further appropriation of 50,000 was asked to complete-it.-
Then its completion was promised for
1.S8I, but at lis opening in 18SU the whole*
atl'air wits found to have cost $340,000.
It is built of brick (cemented) from designs liy Baker, remodeled bv C. J. Woll,
and tire exterior is elaborately ornamented, w bile tho interior is—well, an artistic
surprise. . .
In all thore are forty rooms, and considering that all but those in the basement are seldom used, it will puzzle the
reader to imagine what could be arranged
in so many apartments. But the Hawaiian Knmechamdias were powerful and
hnd mauy visitors, besides which Knla-
l.aua himself has been almost around the
flobe, and the foundation of decorative
(riders brings about the promulgation of
still more decorative gifts, so that Iolani
1'aleee is literally loaded with curiosities,
both novel and.ornameutal.
The front or state entrance to tho
palace, which entrance is only used on
very special occasions, is on King Street,
nearly opposite the Government buildings. Entering the palace this way,
tlije visitor comes first of all to a very
broad hall leading from this entrance,
each Bide of the staircase, and then right
through to the back of Palace Walk end
of the building. The first room to the
right of this hall iathe throne room, md
here is enough conglomeration of tbe
barbaric and the modern to mystify the
beholder. All around the walls are well-
executed portraits of the former Kings of
Hawaii, and at the extreme end of it
portrait which both the King and Queen
nave often silently gazed upon. It is an
oil painting of Kaahumanu, a wife of
I'liiiiehamena the Great, who, after his
death, became Prime Minister and was
v.rtuully monarch during the short reign
ol Kniuehameha II, Perhaps Kapioluni
olriectsto her name ("Captive of Heaven'') as she looks on this savago dame's
determined features and longs to emulate
despotic times have long sinrangone by.
Here, also, ire the marvellous royal
feather robes, the gorgeouaness of whioh
no one can imagine. The robe used by
Kalakaua, and exhibited in thia throne
room, is the identical mamo (mantle) worn
by the great fint Kamehameha. It il
..eleven feet in width and five feet in
length, and made entirely of golden feathers from the Oo, or royal bird. Only two
feathers are found (one under each wing)
ou each bird. As it takes a thousand
feathers to make an ordinary necklace,
what a Vint quantity must-thia robe contain? And this is not only the collection
of a lifetime, but the combination of the
hoards of eight or ten successive chiefs.
At the opening of Parliament this robe is
spread on the throne aa symbolical of
royalty, but at other times lt is always
kept over in the palace, and it is said
"- that Kalakaua was once discovered alone
in thethroae room with thia robearound
bim, gesticulating ind voicing forth
vowels to hia ancestors, like a child with
a new toy.
Kalakaua ia now fifty-one yean of age
and has been drawing $2<S,0Q0 a year
ever since he started, besides extra money
being paid Tail Queen, hie and Iter staffs
and their household expenses. Although
tbe King has an interest in three saloons
and haa aome good property in land, and
certainly often helpa some of hla poor
subjects! yet the mass of his wealth goes
for tha Poi feasts and Hula dances, in
which his predecessors also revelled.
Even when tlio white peoplo are liow invited, the old name of tuaa (native feaat)
ia userl and thi gyrations of the linger

History hia been corrected somewhat
since that dark and bloody pap .wss recorded, and not the least important is
that the Indians outnumbered fully five

It Saved My Life"
Is a common expression, often heard
from those who have realized, by per-
aonal use, the curative powers of Ayer's
Cherry Peottral. "Icannotsayenough
in praise ot Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, believing as I do tbat, but ior Its use, I
should long since have died from lung
troubles.—E. Bragdon, Palestine, Tex.
About six months ago I hnd a severe
Hemorrhage of the Lungs, brought on
by a distressing Cough, which deprived
me of sleep and rest. I had used variolar cough balsams and expectorants,
without obtaining relief. A friend ad-
Tbred me to try
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.
I did so, and am happy to say that it
helped me at onco. By continued use
this medicine cured my cough, and. I
am satisfied, saved my life.—Mrs. B.
Coburn, 18 Second St., Lowell, Mass.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
for over a year, and sincerely believe I
should have boon in my grave, bad lt
not been for this medicino, It bas cured
me of a dangerous affection of the lungs,
lor whioh I Trad almost despaired of ever
finding a remedy. —D. A. McMullen,
Windsor, Province of Ontario.
-Ayer's Cherry Pectoral saved ray life.
Two years ago I took a very sovoro Cold
wbion settled on my lungs. I consulted
physicians, and took tho remedies thoy
prescribed, hut failed to obtain relief
until I began using Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.. Two bottles of this medicine
completelyrestored ray health.—Lizzie

The farmers, especially, will find it u
clean, wholesome, entertaining family

magazine in the world, and has no
superior in artistic merit. The West
Shore for 1888 will be greatly enlarged
in size, and improved in contents, both
literary and artistic. A magnificent,
large oleograph of the "Entrance to
the Columbia River," is now being
prepared, and is superior in every respect to the handsome colored engraving of Mt. Hood issued last year.
This beautiful marine picture and tho
November and December numbers of
1887, will be sent free to all who subscribe now for 1888. A most liberal
clubbing list with leading publications
is now made up, and will be Bent to
any one who desires to take the West
Sfiore in connection with other publications." The subscription price is only

The Highbinders,
The greatest trouble the polico horc
have to contend with, in the Chinese
cases which they hnvo occasion to prosecute, is the difficulty of procuring reliable evidence. Tho obstacle iu the
way of justice iB thu'. class, or society,
of Chinamen, known ns the Highbinders, This society claims to be something similar to our order of Ancient
Free and Accepted Masons, but how
much right thoy have to that honor it
is hard to determine. Whun a Highbinder gets into trouble, and falls into
the hands of tho police, every possible
effort is mado to got him freo again.
It is impossible to get another highbinder to give evidence against him,
and should another Chinaman, not a
member oftho society, bo known to
givo evidence against a Highbinder,
nothing is loft undone to got thu witness out of tho road. They are well
kuown to swear falsely, mu intimidation and any other means within their
power to accomplish the ond in view.
There is no doubt in the minds of the
authorities but that the Highbinders
resort to murder in order to remove a
suspicious or objectionable person
from their midst, nnd cuses ate woll
known in this city where Chinese witnesses have had their lives threatened it
thoy dared to give a word of evideucu
against a Highbinder. It is always
noticed in court that so long aB i lie
prisoner is a member of this society,
some respectable Chinoae merchant is
present, aud the best legal talent in
employed to defend the accused. The
merchant is always willing to pay any
fine that may be inflicted, tfu matter
how much it is, or to stand bail to nny
amount, no mutter how degraded or
villianous a person tlie offender may
be. It makes no difference what of-
fence a Highbinder is charged with
or how positive the proof may be
against him, his friends stick to him
and tight thu case to tho hitter end.
The attempted murder of Mrs, It.ml-
ger, near Hope, about two years ago,
will be remembered by mnny. She
received nineteen stabs in the body hy
a party of Chinamen, among whom
there happened to bo a Higlibiirlci*.
This man was arrested and fully identified by Mrs. Buulger, as one of thu
would be murderers. Tho Highbinders, in order to secure tho release of
their brother, brought a number of
witnesses, who swore positively that
another Chinaman, not a member of
their society, was tho guilty person.
The accused m-m^is brought before
Mrs. Boulger, who said she had nevor
seen him beforo, and he was uot with
the party who attempted to murder
her. Under theso circumstance it is
no wonder tho polico experience no
much trouble in bringing evil doors to
justice, for a* a rule it is only by accident that sufficient evidence cun be
produced to secure a conviction.
It is a groat pity that this society cannot be wiped out of existence, us it is
a standing menace to law and order,
and an unsurmountabic obstacle in tho
path of justice.
Mr. John Magwood, Victoria Road,
writes: "Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable
Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure Is a splendid medicine. My ciwtomers say they
never used anything so effect iinl. Good
results immediately follow its use. I
know its value from personal experience,
having been troubled fori) or 10 years
with DyapcpBla, and since using it digestion goes on without that depressed feeling so well known to dyspeptics. 1 havo
no hesitation in reoom mend ing It iu nny
Case of Indigestion, Cunstipation, Heart-
burn, or troubles arising from a disordered stomach."
A Steamer for Harrison KtVef.
Mr. G. H. Cooper has commenced
work on the hull of a new steamer
which ho intends to run on Harrison
lake and river, Tho steamer will be
n stem wheeler, seventy-five feet over
all, and fitted for passenger traffic
only. Mr. Cooper will run the steamer in connection with the trains and
steamers from Agassis and the mouth
of the river, up to .the hot springB.
She will also bo employed for picnic
and excursion parties, on Harrison
Lake. When this steamer is on the
lako it will prove an additional attraction to tho Hot Springs aB a pleasure
resort, and Mr. Cooper's enterprise is
sure to bo amply rewarded.

Among the finest farms in tho

who own 1,500 acres, about six miles
from tbe lauding, on the main trunk
road. They havo 400 acres under cultivation, this season had satisfactory
crops of oats, barley,' mangold-wurzel
and other roots. Thirty horses aro used
in tho field operations, while 200 head
of horned cattle aro run on the rich
pasture. Mr. McKee recently imported the thoroughbred Holstein bull
"Gallotto," from Davis' stock, which
was some time ago on exhibition here.

Editor Columbian.—Some readers
of the Columbian may have seen an
advertisement iu tho Vancouver News
telling the publio where to get trees;
and the representative wanted seven
cars of apples; but to save stationary,
stamps, &c, the kind of apples wanted
are not grown on this globe, but at
present are found only in largo qualities at Port Prospect, on the northern
part of Imaginary Buy, in the provinco Impossibility, on tho planet
Mars. The name uf the apples iB Nun
Est Hats. They are a very high acid
taste, and are worth 5 cent) a pound.
If any of your readers want the trees
that raise suoh apples, the representative can be found nn Mary street in

visit to the planet Mars looking for
storms, brought some grafts of the high
acid fruit with him; and as the inhabitants of British Columbia are of
very sweet nature, it would be well to
order sour grapes.   Yours &c.
