There is no uie in Attempting to
evade the fact that in the controversy over the Bed River Valley
Railway the Federal authority is
and will be humiliated, regrettable
as it is in itself and disastrous as it*
consequences may vory possibly be.
It is admitted on every hand to be
insanity to attempt to thwart the
Manitohans in their present temper,
and in face of the opinion of the
majority both there and throughout
the Dominion, of both parties. The
action of the Norquay government
in carrying the case before the privy
council is wise and praiseworthy, in
that it shows a desire for the approval of the crown, but it is exceedingly doubtful if the crown'*
disapproval, presupposing the expression of on opinion, which is not
at all certain, would prevail to move
the people from their present attitude one inch. Decisions of the
privy counoil form admirable der-
triers restarts tor provincial and Dominion disputants in probably ninety nine case* out of a hundred, Jbut
where they clash with the dirtot
interests of an entire provincial population acting in accordance with
what they believe to be both their
moral and their legal rights, we are
»fr*i4. that they would represent
opinion and authority alike foreign
and impotent. Fending the decision and events that follow it, about
the only conclusion that can be
drawn from the unfortunate state of
things in Manitoba is that the government cannot be congratulated
upon the policy that made it possible.— Ties Week.

ed to, both by young men and maidens, as the matrimonial agent. A
young man oome* to the miuionary'*
house and says to him, "I want to
marry." "Whom!" oik* the missionary; "have you anyone in mindl"
"Yes," answers the lover, "but she
will not have me. I want you to
speak to her." "Have you not
spoken for yourself!" "Many times,
but the always sayt 'No.' "That is
nothing," sayt the pastor) "you
know Use way of maidens. Does she
like you!" "It is difficult to find out
Sho will tell you." The pastor accordingly aenda for the girl, who
come* willingly enough, knowing
what the menage mean*. "Well my
daughter," he observe*, "it i* time
you should think of marriage." "I
never mean to marry." ia the invariable and conventional answer.
"That it a pity," **y* the minister,
"because I have a good husband for
thee." "Whoithe!"*he*sks. The
missionary then tells her hit narae-
although she knows it as well as he
does-and launches out into the lover's
praise. Re is strong, good looking,
kindly; he caught two fine whales
when his companions took none, or
whatever else can lie said to his repute. Afterthe catalogued his merits
has been recited the girl replies!—
But I think him a good tor-nothing."
"Ah, well," says the missionary,
"thou art not wise; there is no lad
can fling a harpoon as he can; I
shall soon find him a wife." He then
wishes the girl a good-day, affecting
to believe that the interview is over.
But she is sura to linger, and after
a blush and a sigh she whiiper*:—
"Bo it is particularly your wish,
Herr Pastor! I do not quite like
him (with a deep sigh) but if you—"
At this point the virtually hands
over the business to Ae minister,
who htt to tall her that she knows
the loves the lad; that the would
not have come if she had not thought
of accepting him, and that nothing
is wanting out to ask the blearing
of Ood upon their Union. The mar
riage, curiously enough.usuolly takes
place upon the very day on which
the bride has emphatically protested
that she will never have the bride-
groom.—Manchester Cowtier,

THE FRENCH IN MADAGASCAR.
London, Sept. 1'—Despatches received this afternoon from Madagascar state that tho position of affair*
thero is anything but satisfactory for
tho French authorities. Nothing ha*
occurred to diminish the extreme tension iu the rotation between the French
resident and the Malagasy prime min-
later on the subject of the granting of
consular exeauoteurs, both parties
claiming that right. Tl*»Fr*noh
authorities oomplain of the repeated'
denial* of justice at the British consulate, They allege that the British consul at Tainatave refuses to compel his
countrymen to pay their debts or to
give judgment against them. Another
cause of difficulty arises out of the
mode of collecting the custom* due* at
the six principal ports. Theseare collected by the Comptoir d'Escompte of
Paris, which advanced the money to
My the French indemnity, and are
levied as far as possible in cash; At all
the other porta, however, the 10 per
cent, duly is accented by the Hovas
authorities in kind. The result is that
a* payment in cash ia a burden to importers, they go, when they can, to
the ports where the Hova authorities
collect snd avoid the porta in the
hand* of Frenoh agent* to the detriment of the security of the French
bank for ita lean. The latter now
seeks to establish its agents, not only
in the six ports specified, but alio in
every other centre of trade in Madagascar. This demand has been direct-
Mr refused by the Hovas, and the bank
demands the interference of the French
Government in its behalf.
TBE COHINO RACE.
London, Sept. 3—The forthcoming
yacht race for the Queen's Cup in
New York harbor is attracting general
attention in yachting and sporting
circles. There is much excitement
over the event. Betting runs high,
and at present it is in favor of the
Thistle, but intelligence about the
Volunteer is eagerly sought for here.
Her recent performances have been
carefully watched, and her points are
(canvassed with as much minuteness as
if she was a British yacht, and about
to sail a match in English water*. The
more ihe it heard of, the more cautious the betting men become, and it
would not be surprising to find the
betting about even on the day before
the race. The American* are doing
their patriotic best to support tho Volunteer, and feel great confidence in
her success.  -
O. P. R. COMPETITION.
San Francisco, Sept. 3.—The Oan
•dian Pacific railway had another
heavy cargo out yesterday, consisting
of bean*, dried fruit*, wine*, etc
Yesterday was the anniversary of the
opening in San Franoisco of the Canadian Pacific. The Canadian Pacific
steamer Port Victor, on the trans-
Pacific line, hu been substituted for
tbe Psrthis. Advices by the steamer
Altmedatoday from Australia state
that General Agent Woods, cf the
Canadian Pacific railway, read a paper
before the Sydney chamber of commeroe proposing to establish a mail
service via Vancouver with the aid of
the colonial subsidy. The chamber
discuuadthe subject without taking
action.
THI IRISH QUESTION'.
London, Sept. 8.—When the present session of parliament will come to
an end is an uncertain event. All depend* on th* court* of Irish affair*.
If th* prohibition of meetings in Ireland i* enforced, the Irish member*
will fight in the house of common*
for th* right* of their constituent*,
tnd keep the home sitting as long a*
possible. The contest ao far has not
developed any remarkable powers on
either aide. The agitation in Ireland
over the proclamation of the league,
and the prohibition of meetings of Ihe
people is hourly increasing. It was
expected that fully 40,000 men and
women would assemble on tho hillside
of Ballycore to-morrow, but it ia now
believed that only a small body will
meet in the prescribed distriot in order
to teat the legality of the proclamation,
aud the right of the government to interfere with peaceful gatherings, and
the great mots will be addressed
outside. The trade* union congress
will meet at Swansea next Monday.
Two important questions will come before the congress, vis.: Whether inter-
national trades unions shall be sane.
Honed, and whether tho state ahould
pas* the 8 hour law. The Drat question will probably be decided in the
negative by a large majority, and the
second be carried unanimously.

wishes Mr. Webster to lay his sidewalk on the same level a* the Chinamen'*. The city record* have been
examined) but nothing can be found
there to settle the difficulty except a
clause which says that such a question
is to be decided by the mayor and
council as coses may arise—a nurillaf-
twf system. My object in bringing
this question before the public is to let
tho tax payers see the sort of economy
that is practiced in our municipal government Instead of fixing the grade*
of streets and the proper heights of
sidewalks, and making profiles which
oould be seen by everybody who required it at the city clerk's office, this
necessary work has been left undone,
and tho consequence is that everyone
is iu doubt and uncertainty both a*
regard* the line and grade of the
Btreet*. If I were oity surveyor I
would no doubt be pleated with thia
sort of business, but as I am only a
tax payer I beg leave to object to such
an extravagant, bungling system. In
looking over the city records to find
out something nbout this grade business I was somewhat amused in reading over the various amendment* to,
the sidewalk by-law. Philadelphia
lawyers are supposed to be.expert*
but I think it would puzzle them to
tell the precise meaning of thia bylaw. J. Kennedy.
Since writing the above I have just
found out that Turner & Co., aurvey-
ora, have charged Mr. McDonough
ten ((10) dollar* for staking off the
lot on which he intended to build, and
that they also have a bill for five (|5)
dollars before the municipal council
for doing (he same work.       J. K.

Nothing could lm liner than tho
fall weather in British Columbia.
Farmers hnvo bad every opportunity
to soctiro thoir crops in excellent
shupir, and the inconveniences of
early fall rains, so often experienced
in this country, havo been almost
entirely escaped. If it is true that
there is no rose without a thorn, it
is equally true that there is no country without a drawback. There is,
however, probably no country where
drawbacks are less serious than in
British Columbia. While the fields
iu the east hnve been parched with
drought, and the crops have in
many places been worth much less
than it cost to produce them, our
agriculturists have fair crops all
over and the prospect of excellent
prices. The atmospheric conditions
in this district are so different from
those prevailing in the east that the
land is able to stand an extensive
period of drought without serious
consequences. It has been said
that British Columbia is not an
agricultural country, but although
we have not as much farming land
proportionately as some of the other
provinces, what we have is more
productive and less subject to disaster. As a matter of fact, however,
there is as much agricultural land
in this province as will suffice for
its wants for the next centnry at
least
It was announced a few days ago
that the project of establishing a
new Tory newspaper in Toronto had
failed, as the money required for the
enterprise could not be obtained.
This is additional evidence that the
party spirit is weakening in the
east, and that party organs are not
received with such enthusiasm as
they once were. Since the Mail
became independent Toronto lias
been without a Tory organ, although
several fruitless attempts have been
made to establish one. Sir John
Macdonald has personally interested
himself in the scheme, and has
promised a good subscription to the
necessary stock. Besides this, the
patronage of the Dominion government would, of course, come to the
new organ, but it is not clear that
this advantage would be sufficient
to compensate for the disadvantages
of the lost of independence, The
success of the Mail since it became
independent is conspicuous. Its
freedom from the tyranny of party
gives a wonderful ohange to its
tone, und adds great additional
weight to its utterances. An organ
of a party becomes merely a machine whose business it is to express
the sentiments of those who have
established it. Politically it is not
an organ of public opinion, and it
oan never hope to secure publio
confidence.
Eastern newspapers still continue
to devote muoh space to the Manitoba boundary railway. In a late
article the Toronto Mail thus refers
to the proposed visit of Sir George
Stephen to England: "He is going
to induce the British government
to put obstacles in the way of Mani-
tobans. We do not believe he will
succeed. The fight they arc waging
is one of those irrepressible conflicts in which wise men do not interfere. The monopoly is not in
Sir George's hands so far as Manitoba is concerned, and he has no
right to exact it, while the right to
build to the frontier is guaranteed to
Manitobans by their constitution,
and unless we are much mistaken,
they will not desist until they have
asserted it, no matter what influences may be invoked against them.
A government that was under no
obligation to Sir George and Sir
Donald, and that was free to act for
the best interests of Canada, would
not attempt to restrain Manitoba
any longer, but would grant her
equal rights with the other provinces,
and ensure her future prosperity by
placing the settler as far as possible
upon even terms with his*American
competitors. He cannot prosper
under any less equitable conditions,
and we may as well make up our
mind* to the fact that if this fair
play be not accorded him by the
government he will never rest until
he has achieved it We cannot
check Manitoba or any other province in pursuit of its material welfare, without danger to the peace
and integrity of the Dominion,"
We hope our public-spirited citizens will not permit the generosity
of the Dominion government, in
handing over to the city the lot on
whioh the old post office building
■tend*, to become fruitless. The
lot WM conveyed for the express
purpote of being used as a site for
• new publio library and reading
room. ' It it proposed to erect a two
ttory brick building thereon, the
ground floor to be used as stores
and Uie second floor for public purposes. The position is very central,
and excellently suited to the purpose
in contemplation. It is often said
that there are very few places in
tht city Where young men can op to
spend *ti evening free from evil in-
fluenoe*, end it it with a view to
providing each • plane that the post-
office lot hM twen Moored. It was
believed tb»t infllolent .revenue
night be ebUined from theitorei
to pay tlio running expenses of Iho
whole concern, and as rents now
run we should not wonder ii this
expectation would he realized. But
it will take 'money to put up the
building anil lit it for the uses intended. There ought to be no difficulty in securing a sullicicnt sum for
that purpose. Thero is considerable
surplus capital in the city, and we
are sure there are among our citizens
sufficiententerprise and philanthropy
to carry out such a praiseworthy
scheme. It would be just the cor
rect thing if some one who can
afford it will erect a suitable build
ing on this lot and present it to the
city as a gift to be used for tho pur
poses contemplated. Who will set
up such a magniticont monument to
his philanthropy)

lmte,n.ag-er. Tho Apple.
Tho prehistoric area of tho apple was
chiefly in the region lying hgtwottfjl
Ti'-'bizond and Ghilau. The laleo dwellers of Lombard)', Savoy, aud Switzerland
made great use- of apples. "They always
cut them lengthways, and preserved them'
dried as a provision for tho winter"
writes J..)eeandolle, in his interesting work
on tho "Origin of Cultivated Plants."
Two varieties of apples seem to have
been known to tho lake dwellers before
they possessed metals. Whether they ovor
■solved tho problem, that hopelessly
puzzled George III. and got them into a
dumpling, archajology doesn't inform us.
Tlie tibmutunco of tho fruit found in.
prehistoric stores would seetn to uklicato.
. some kihd of cultivation. Tho pour is of
less fi-oipient occurrence,, although it is
found in the prehistoric dwellings of
Switzerland and Italy, usually iu a dried,
state, nnd cut lengthways. Thon, as now,
therefore, the pear was a greater luxury
than tho apple. Tho abundance^ and
variety of naihos testify to tho very
ancient existence of tho latter from the
Caspian Sea to the Atlantic. Philology
comes largely to our aid-in -this interesting study. The more ancient and widely
spread a plant, the more numerous its
names. But prehistoric diners-out possessed one of the best of all fruits—tho
grape. Seeds of tlio grape havo been discovered in the. lake dwellings. near
Parma, dating from the ngo of bronze;
also in the prehistoric settlement of Lako
Vrireso and of Switzerland. M. Decau-(
dolle, 'moreover, informs us that vino
leaves have been found in the tufa near
Montpelier. whero they were 'probably,

nlso in the same formation in Provencb.
Whether thoy combined tho two wo
know not, but it is quite probable that
wine and walnuts delectated the palates
of primitive feasters. The walnut is of
groat antiquity. AValnut leaves have
been found in the quaternary tufa of
Provence, and a species of walnut in
some of the Swiss lako. dwellings. The
species possesses a Sanskrit name, a fact
testifying to its dat-ley eultivationinlndia.
The tree Mas introduced into China"about
110 }\, C. Only one cherry-stone has been
as yet found in any prehistoric settlement
of Italy nud Switzerland, nor is tlio antiquity of the stratum quite certain.
Floval Superstition.
Two ladies hurriedly entered tho New
Haven and Hartford waiting-room of the
U rand Central dopot yesterday.
|     "[low soon does the train leave ?" anxiously inquired one of them,
"in live minutes.   You havo not much
i   time to spare," the guard answered.
"You get tho tickets, please," the younger lady requested her companion. "I-
ihust have some flowers,"
"You will miss J ho train if you go after
,   them now," her friend answered.
"I would rather miss it than go on it
without some flowers. 1 will toll you
why when I return," sho answered, as
she darted away.
She eamo quickly back with lilies of;
the valley in her hand, nnd on'crcdhnlf
of the bunch to her friend.
"No, no; I will not rob you of them
after you risked mining tho train to procure them," the liidy said.
"J)o tako them, please. I am somewhat superstitious about it. You know
J rode a good doal on the trains at one
time, to and from si'hool. The .conductor
of the train was a big man of middle ago,
with hair tinged with gray. No matter
what tho season, summer or winter, he
always wore a flower on the lapel of his
, coat. One day I plucked up courage to
I   ask him why he did so,
'"Well, you see, miss, I havo got.a littlo
wife up at home that thinks a great deal
of mo, and siiys no one would ever get
vory badly mixed up in a railroad accident who wore a flower about thorn. She
pinned the tlr.4 flower to my coat that I
ovor woro on a train, aud now I'd rather
go withot my dinner on a trip tuim go
abroad without a flower,' he said.
'"Wero you ever on n train when an
accident occurred ?' I asked him.
"' Yes; I was once,1 ho said,' and I was
almost the only ono on the car who did
not get hurt badly. When tho crash
came I did not get u scratch; and, do you
know, miss, I still think it was tho flower
my wifo pinned on my coat and her
prayers that kept mo safo that night.'
".since tho conductor told mo that story
I must confess that I havo becnaileetod
with the same superstition, if you have a
mind to call it so: but it Is a harmless
one at all events,"

The night of Yenr*.
It is somewhat ixexplicable that any

Stipend It Ion* About Funerals,
It Is bud luck to whistle or hum tho air
that a baud plays at a funeral.
If two persons think and express tho
same thought at tho sumo time, one of
them will die boforo the yearpasses.
If two young girls aro combing the hair
of a third at the same timo, it may be
taken for granted that tho youngest of
thu threo will soon die.
If nt tho cemetery thore bo any unusual
delay in burying tho dead, caused by any
unlooltod-for circumstances, such as the
tomb being too small to hold thu eollin, it
is a sign that tho deceased is selecting a
companion from among t nose present, und
one of tlio mourners must soon die.
AnniTANT-GRSKitAii Dniw, in answer
to inquiries from a friend who hud heard
through the newspapers that his health
was very much impaired and thnt hu
contemplated retirement in consequence,
says his health has not been so good for
years as it Is now, and as for rouramont,
he has no such purpose in view. lHsap-
pcuruuco and activity in tho performance
of ids duties certainly hours out thoso
statements.
SUBJECTS OF THOUGT.
Commence defies overy wind, outrides
every tempest) and invades every zone.
Tite ' reproaches of enemies should
quicken us to duty, and not keep us from
duty.
A NOWJ3 nature can alono attract tlie
noble, and alono knows how to retain
tliom,
Pf/EAsunE must first havo the warrant
thnt it is without sin; then, the measure,
that it is without excess.
The best people aro not,thoso who say
the most or speak the best but they who
sny tliedtast and do as tlietylay.
,.]-.veiiy. beautiful, pureed good thought
which the heart entertains'is an angel of
mercy, purifying and guarding tho soul.
Let a man learn that everything in
nature, even motes and feathers, go by
law and not by "luck," and that what he
sows he reaps.
On, how small a portion of earth will
hold' us whon wo are dead, who ambitiously scokifte-V tbo whplo world while
wo aro living'.
It is not tho quantity of meat, but the
cheerfulness of the guests, which make
the feast. Where thero is no peaco there
can bo no feast.
Puma's chickens have bonny feathers,
■but, thoy are an expensive brood to rear;
they cut up everything, and are always
fttjfl&whon they are brought to the market.
'■'All experience Jxath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while
. oviU ai-e suffbrable, than to right themselves by abolishing tho forms to which
they are accustoinedr
It seems to me wo can nover givo up
longing and wishing while- wo aro thoroughly alive. There are certain things
we feel to be beautiful and good, and we
must huugar after them.
Theiif, are threo ordors of emotions;
these of pleasure, which refer to the
seiisds; thoso oHiarmony, whicli refer to
the mind; nnd those of happiness, which
are the natural result of a union between
harmony and pleasure.
Tin: (rue proof of tho inherent nobleness of our eommon nature is in the
sympathy it betrays with what is noble
wherever crowds are collected. Never
believe the world is base; if.it were so,
no society could hold together for a day.
If thero is any ono thing which abovo
all else can soothe or dispel human sorrow, dissipate doubt and uncertainty,
solve problems, settle difficulties, turn
fear into courage and hesitation into
decision, it is Ihe prompt performance of
the meanest duty.
■ .1 if ave great hopes of tho time when
these labor nrganizittions shall become
schools iu which each member studies
tlie conditions under whicli he is compelled to live, and finds that the only way
in which he can lift himself to the top is
by developing his own capacity or aptitude.
A TEXDi-ia-iiEAUTED und compassionate
dftpositiou] which inclines men to pity
and feel the misfortunes of others, and
which is even for its own sake incanablo
of involving any man in ruin and misery,
is of ail tempers of mind the most amiable ; and, though it seldom receives much
honor, is worthy of tho highest.
TiiKinc arc many who do not bolievo in
devotion for'marriage, but it cannot bo
filled 'without' special protection from
God. Young men and women who take
that step, bear well in mind that mar-
i logo is one of the most important in life.
You have but ono life to live and no
earthly considerations can pay you for a
life of unhappiness. A gooij wifo is given
to tlioso who.'*fear God." A good wife,
therefore, is given to man for bis good
deeds, and a good husband is bestowed
upon a woman for her goodness.
"Thu powor to converse woll* is a vory
great charm," says Huskin. "You think
anybody can talk. How mistaken you
are! Anybody can chatter. Anybody
can oxcharigo idle gossip. Anybody can
recapitulate the troubles of tho kitchen,
the cost of tho last now dress, and the
probable doings of Uie neighbors. But to
talk wisely, instructivoly,freshlyj andde-
liglHfutly is an immense accomplishment.
It implies exertion, observation, study of
books uud people, and recoptivity of impression. 1'ialo banished the musicians
irom his feasts that the charms of conversion might havo no interference;
but in our Inter fashions many prefer
music rather then tho gossip of tho hour,
which often degenerates into trivialities
wearisomo and commonplace."
How to Atmto tho Sparrow Nuisance.
A shotgun is tho most convenient instrument for destroying them, but as they
are most offensive in tho cities and villages, aud ns it is not safe to Uro the usual
load from a shotgun about the streets, a
good plan is to get n twenty-two calibre
rifle, a Klobert or other cheap stylo will
do, and charge it with the small shot
cartridges, which can be had at the gun
stores. There are several advantages in
thu uso of the small ritlesand shot shells.
It makes but a slight noise—not enough
to startle any one; it does not throw
strong enough to hurt anybody seriously
many yards away; tho shot put in the
cartridges .is line, and soon spends it.:
force, and tho cartridges are cheap—two
for a cent, by tho hundred. With such
n guu, and ammunition to correspond, a
very promising colony of sparrows can be
disposed of in a very short time at llttlo
expense, and without disturbing the
slumbers of the babies in your block, or
frightening their mother by tlie smell of
villainous saltpeter. — Ornithologist in
HoclmierlVoU'-jgrpim!...   ,.
Nails on thoir Gloves,
Of course there ia absolutely no means
of judging the relativo powers of the an-
cieiilsanduioderns in tho "noble art of
H'li'-dcfense." That the ancients, especially tin; Greeks, .lid box, und that most
suvagely, we know. So far from using
gloves to lesson tho damaging cubcta of
their blows, or oven from using simply
llie power that nature and training had
given to their lists, they increased this by
tying straps of hard bull's hide around
them when clinched, and sometimes even
ntbuhed nails aud lead buckles to these
to mako their blows inoro deadly.
They also usually, but not alwavs.
fought continuously until one of the combatants gavo in, "rounds/' apparently
not being to their taste. But, although
there seems to havo boon this savagery
about tlio contests, it by no means follows that a "scientific boxer" of tho presont day would not bo ablo to hold his
own in one, if atrial were possible,

out to complete the grading. The
average of tbo rock cut is about 10 ft.
This ha* to be blasted and carted to the
end of the dump, where the trestle
work crosses tho Indian ravine, near
the Marine Hospital. A large quantity of powder ha* been used in blasting the rock, a fact with which our
citizen* are doubtless familiar, for the
frequency of the blast* will attest this.
The trestle work is in a forward state,
a considerable portion being already
framed and in position. This work is
in charge of Mr. William*. A month'*
time will elapse ere the whole is completed. The bridge then will be undertaken and pushed through with all
haste.—Tic. Times.

The Salmon Tbape.—The Montreal
Trade Review of the 29th ult. in its
market quotation* says: In canned
good* the feeling has improved, the
demand, however has not been very
large. BritiahOolumbia salmon is now
$1.46 f. o. b. at the Pacific Coast
which is equal to $1.70 here. Tbe lut
ule which had been mado iii the mark-
et had been at $1.60. Cannen on the
coast are not offering any more goods
having sold all they believe they can
spare, they are firm holders of the
balance which they say will reach $2.
The New York Commercial Bulletin
says: "Columbia Biver salmon ha*
reached a $2 market, and tales of out-
aide river Ilth hare been made at $1.06
for local brand*. The quality of the
latter promises unusually good thi*
year, as many veteran packers of the
Columbia have entered largely into the
industry upon on other rivers, and
being desirous of establishing a reputation for brands will take extra care in
putting up stock under their own label.
Therefore, in case Columbia brands
prove positively scarce, buyers will
find they can tupply the requirements
with • good quality of outside river
brands, and at a materially lest prices."

Vancouver vs. McDouoall.— On
Saturday last a motion was made to
dissolve tho injunction restraining the
defendant from piling inflammable
material or Betting oat liro within the
city limits of Vancouver. The application was made on several grounds,
amongst others that the continuance
of the injunction was no longer necessary to the safety of the city. By
consent of counsel on both 'sides the.
injunction was dissolved on the ground
mentioned, the questions of the defendant's right to damages and the
amount of costs to Ire settled afterwards if either party should desire.

Gold Mining *n the Fraser.
In May lost a leue was granted by
the government to a company to mine
upon the benches and ban of the west
bank of Fraaar River, oommoncinn
nine mile* above the town of Lilloett,
and extending a distance of two mile*
—bettor described to those familiar
with that locality as lying between
Nine Mile creek and Eleven Mile
creek. At it frequently the use on
the Fraser beyond th* Cascades, no
water tupply for working tho ground
in quettion exists within reach on tht
south aide of the rirer, but there i* an
abundant aupply on tbe opposite side,
and the idea of conducting the water
in pipe* across the river occurred to
these enterprising men, and it wss for
the purpose of carrying cut this new
scheme that the franchise was sought
and tbe company organised. From *
letter just received from Edward Allen, Esq., member for tbat dittrict, it
aopeara that the workt have been completed and a successful beginning
made. On the lit intt. they were
piping away, and for the half day't
work took out over an ounce of beauti!
ful gold without cleaning up the ground
sluice at all. Thii highly gratifying
result proves that these deserving men
will be rewarded for their enterprise.
But what is of very much greater im-
portance, it proves that a very large
are* of auriferous ground, hitherto un*
touohed for lack of water, can be successfully and profitably worked by
having recourse to the ume expedient.
Every one will wish that the venturesome spirita who have thus mired an
important problem may reap a rich
golden harvest, aud there seems to be
every probability of their example
being followed by many othen. The
benches and ban of the Upper Fraser
may yet present scene* of greater mining activity than ever beforo. At all
events. Mr. Allen appears to be very
sanguine of great widely extended results from this nuw method of overcoming a natural difficulty,—CoUnM.
A letter from P. O. Sharpleas, Drug,
gist, Marion, Ohio, in writing of Dr.
Thomas' Eclectric Oil, says: One man
was cured of sore throat of 8 years' stand,
ing wish one bottle. We have a number
of cases of rheumatism that hare been
cured when other remedies have failed.
We consider it the best medicine aeld.

In an Impartial nml Independent manner, tho iMiHsliiu ovi'ittH of Ciiiindlan political and social life, lis Cartoons speak
moro definitely ami more pleasingly than

gont, easily appreciable, and artistic style
»r praupnii.iiia subject, the whole situation Is revealed nt iv glance. The success
of Grip shows how welt this fnot Is appreciated—Its Cartoons on flu* passing political events of tlio country being even
moro eagerly sough I after than tho chaste

though the latter Is equal lo Mint of uny
similar publlcattoii on ihe continent.
The publishers of Grip are making ex
tensive improvements for 1886. The old
cover Is to be discarded, nnd tha Journal
will hereafter comprise \2 pages, and be

paper.—evory number beingsourtistlealJy
executed as to compare favorably with
the best papers on tho continent. The
advts. will be compressed ond moro systematically arranged; while similar Im
provoments will ho made as to the letterpress. A new und handsome design will
adorn the title pnge; while tlm Cnrtooni
will certainly not sutler from extensive
Improvements In the artistic department.
The prioe of Grip will hereafter be t3a

paper of lis kind In Amerlca,-most of
them selling for $.r-,  Blnglo numbers of
paper of its kind In Amerlca,-most of

Twice a year.at Midsummer and Christmas, a beautiful special number will be
Issued, the number of pages being increased, nnd pleasing features Introduced,
