Since President Oloveland signi-
lied his intention not to accept tlie
invitation to visit St. Louis while
tlio Grand Array encampment is bo
ing held there, a movement has been
on foot among the citizens to invite
him to pay a visit at somo other
time and to givo him a royal recep-
tio.'i, The inhabitants of Kansas
City, however, have quitely 'iscoop-
ed" their St. Louis brethern, On
Friday last a delegation Of eighty of
the former left for Washington, bearing a most gorgeous invitation to
the President and Mrs. Cleveland to
visit them, thus getting ahead of a
delegation to be sent from St. Louis.
The invitation is in book form, make-
a volumn 11 inches long, 16 inches
wide and 4 inches thick. The binding is of sealskin, being the first instance of tho use of this valuable
skin for bookbinding. On tho front
cover, sunk in tho binding, is a square
of white satin, bordered with blue
plush, aud having an inscription engrossed upon it. Tlio book contains
water-colour illustrations and an invitation signed by 21,000 citizens.
The whole is enclosed in a sealskin
case, embossed in gold and lined
with gold plush. The President
will surely not be able to resist all
this gorgeousness.—Mail.
Two hundred years ago in China
there was just such a croze about
natural gas as we have in this country todny. Gas wells were sunk
with as much vim und vigour as the
celestials were capable of, but owing to a uas explosion that killed
several millions of people and tore
up and destroyed a large district of
country, leaving a large inland sea,
known oh tho maps as Lake, Foo
Chang, the boring of any more gas
wells was then and there prohibited
by law, It seems, according to the
Ohinese history, that many large
and heavy pressure gas wells were
struck, aud in somo districts wells
were sunk quite near to each other.
Gas was lighted as soon as struck,
as is done in this country, It is
stated that one well with its unusual pressure, by induction or back
draught, pulled down into the earth
tlie burning gas of a smaller well, resulting in a dreadful explosion of a
large district, destroying the inhabitants ,liereos. Luke Foo Chang
rests on this district. The same
catastrophe is iminnent in this
country unless the laws restrict further deqelopments in boring so many
wells. Should a similar explosion
occur there will be such an upheaval
as will dwarf the most terrible car-h-
quakes ever known. The country
along tho gas belt from Toledo
through Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky will be rspped up to the depth
of 1,200 to 1,500 feet and flopped
ouer Hke a pancake, leaving a chasm
through which the waters of Lake
Enie will come howling down, filling
the Ohio and Mississippi valleys,
and blotting them out forover.— Cincinnati Commercial Gazette.
lt is to be hoped the settlement
of thu long-pending Afghan Boundary dispute may prove to be the beginning of a reconciliation between
England and Russia. Thero is no
reason whatever why the two Powers should not march amicably side
by side in Asia. Russia is doing a
oivilising work there that oertainly
could not be done by England] and
England, we feel assured, may rest
for another half century in perfect
security as respects India. Not India but Persia is menaced by tho
Russian advance; through Persia
is tbo road to the sea that Russia
has in view. An air-hole to breathe
her vast land-bound populations sho
must have, in Asia ns well as in
Europe; and the sooner she has an
outlet through the Persian Gulf the
sooner may Asia breathe in peace.
India would then be separated from
the Russian Power by the deserts of
Beloochistan, as sho now is by the
deserts of Afghanistan; und itshould
be the beginning and ond of the
.Eastern policy of England to keep
Russia on the far side of both those
desert countries, to penetrate either
of which, from Turkestan or from
Persia, amid hostile populations,
would leave any invading troops
little able to cope with the fresh
force that England could muster for
tho defence of India. Russia snat-
cd on the Persian Gulf, would, besides, be open to attack by a naval
Power, as sho is not now; which
would be a pledge of good behaviour
that might to some extent countervail a Russian control of the Dos-
phorus. With the overwhelming
military strength of Russia, the un
ity of national sentiment, and the
endurance and persistence of that
great nation, it is hurdly possible
that Russia can be forever kept out
of Constantinople. That is her
main aim no doubt; it is the great
cynosure nt presont of Russia's aspirations, and thore is no power at
presont visible in the world with
both sutKcent force and sullicent mo
tive to withstand her. In possession of Constantinople she would
threaten all Europe, and yet be safe
from attack; und it would ue no
small advantage to have her at tbo
same time seated on the Persian
Gulf, whioh would be one vulnerable point in a colossal empire otherwise almost invulnerable, .—'fAe

A CRAZY ANABCniSr.
New Yobk, Aug. 3.—A orazy Irish-'
man, whose name tbe police have uot
yet recovered, tried to blow up the
British ocean str. Queen, of the national line this afternoon. He rowed up
in a small boat alongside and threw a
bottle containing some bind ' of explosive on board. An explosion followed which Bet tire to the steamer.
The flarntrrr were enon extinguished.
The police captured the man; he said
he was of a baud of men who had effected an organization having for ita
object tho destruction with explosives
of every vessel carrying the British
Hag. The broken bottle was brought
to thu police headquarters also. It
contained kerosene, naptha and rags
soaked in chemicals. The prisoner
took it coolly. "I was thwarted in
tliis," he said, "but there aro plenty
of others at work who will avenge the
insult to American vessels and burn
every vessel carrying the British flag."
THE LAND BILL rASSED.
London, Aug. 3.—The land bill hu
passed the committee stage in the
house of commons this afternoon.
The bill will allow the construction of
a turmoil under the English channel,
which waa introduced in the house of
commons by Sir Edward Watkins and
was rejected this afternoon by a vote
of 153 to 105.
A SEMOUS ACCIDENT.
Minneapolis, Minn., Aug. 3.— A
serious accident occurred this morning
at the ruin of the St. Anthony elevator in the eastern suburbs of this oity.
The elevator was burned July 19, and
since the settlement was made with
the insurance companies a large force
of men havo been employed removing
the damaged wheat. This morning 12
men were engaged in shovelling away
tho grain from the south wall of the
elevator behind which in the bottom
of the ruins was still a great mass of
wheat. Without warning the wall
yielded to tho outward pressure and
the great stone structure fell over upon
the men, crushing them terribly and
mangling them almost beyond recognition. It was several hours before any
bodies were recovered. Finally the
corpses of Gits Brown, P. II. Anderson, Chas. Dempsey, E. S. Msrkey,
and John Johnson were takcu from
the debris, and another so far unidentified. A. Enckson, while yet alive,
waa removed to his homo in south
Minneapolis, and search is being mado
for the bodies of the other laborers.
STABBED BY A FELLOW rillSONEB.
San Fkancisco, Aug. 3.—George
H. Marshall, a prisoner in tho county
jail, was stabbed nnd killed by his cell
mate, a Greek named Nicolo Paroliedo,
shortly beforo twelve o'clock last night.
Tho chief jailor was attracted by tho
groariB of the wounded man as he lay
on tho floor of tho oell bleeding from
n number of wounds, but was prevented from entering owing to the prosoncc
of the Greek,, who threatened him
with death. The other jail ofliccrs
appeared, all of whom were prevented
from entering the oell through fear,
and in the meantime Marshall died.
The Greok kopt the officials nt bay for
2 hours, but at one o'clock this iriitrn-
ing tho cell wns opened and the men
entered, when the Greek mode a rush
nt thorn. One of the deputies tired,
the bullet entering the right hip joint.
Marshall was cut in a dozen different
places, nny one of the wounds being
sufficient to insure his death. The
Greek makes tho plea that Marshall
had threatened to kill him.
A MUKDEHE11 SEEN TN CA.N'AIU.
St. Louis, Aug. 3.—A special from
London, Ont., snys: Wm. Thomas
Abbot Wost, who is wanted in St.
Louis for tho murder of Susie Beck,
was seen in this oity laat Thursday.
He hurriedly visited his brother, Peter
West, who has two of the person's
children in his care. The London detectives are muoh chagrined, as they
had tukon no interest in the affair till
too late.

Touonto, Ont., Aug. 3.—High Constable Bissonate, of Montreal, passed
through here to-day en route for St.
Catharine with a warrant for the arrest
of McGarigle, the Chicago boodler.
The warrant was issued at the instance
of Jamos Baxter, broker, on charge
of conspiracy.
A NEW HOME RULE SCHEME.
London, Aug. 3.—Sir George Trevo-
lyn's victory continues of absorbing
interest, London and provincial Conservative newspapers agree in saying
the election is an ominous fact and it
would be unwiso to attempt to ignore
or extenuate its •igniteauce. Glad-
atonian papers are confident an imme-.
diato cloction would result in tlie
return of a Home Rulo ma'ority. The
same view is held by the ministerialists, which fact leads to the oxpreauou
of opinion that the government, being
sure of a compact majority during the
run of the present parliament, will
uot risk a dissolution till the and of
the natural term, five yean hence,
when Gladstone will probably be dead,
or his powers weakened, Tbe Pall
Mall Gatette publishes a new home
rule scheme purporting to hare been
accepted by the Liberal leaders. Thia
schema gives international legislature
and executive. There is to be no separation of Ulster. ■.. The Irish members will continue to sit in the imperial parliament in theirpresent number.
The powers of the Irish parliament
will be delegated and matters to be
controlled in Dublin being clearly defined and also subject to revision by
the imperial parliament.

WHY SOT OIVB M'SAJUOLB UP.1 ■
Toronto, Aug. 4.—In a leading editorial this morning the (Hot* says:
"There ought to be no ceremony about
surrendering convicted boodlers of the
McGaririe stripe. It is true Canada
is not legally bound to surrender him,
but what do we want of him?' A
New York paper points out that under
similar circumstances Spain surrendered Tweed. Why can not Canada give
up McGarigle!
SETTLEMENT OF THE FISHERY QUESTION.
Toronto, Aug. t—A cable from
London to the Globe says: Fresh proposals for the settlement of the fisheries dispute have been submitted to the
government by the authorities at
Washington. They were approved of
at Ottawa and have been favorably received by the imperial government,
but are still under consideration. The
details are not known but it is understood a more popular view of the possibility of a speedy settlement is now
taken at the White House.

LEAGUE;
Dublin, Aug. 4.—United Ireland
publishes a copy of ita circular whicli
it asserts has been issued lo the police,
directing that a watch be kept upon
the movements of members of the
house of commons belonging to tho
national league.
ONTARIO    INVESTMENT    COMPANY    EMBARRASSED.
London, Ont, Aug. 4.—The Ontario Investment Association is Sum- •
cially embarrassed. A special general
meeting of the stock holden ww held
to-day and a partial statement of assets
and liabilities aubmitted. Over $400,-
000 of paid up capital stock haa been
lost to the association through faulty
management and losses which oould
not bo avoidod. Charles Murray,
manager, has left for Omaha. It is
hinted proceedings will be taken
against the directors to compel them
to account for the money placed in
their keeping.
ANOTHER VICTIM OF THE ACCIDENT.
St. Thomas, Ont, Aug. 4.—Allen
Francis, U. S. consul, who was .truck
by a hose cart at the recent railway
disaster here and badly injured, died
suddenly this morning. He had been
confined to his room ever since the accident but his condition wu not
thought critical. At 11:30 last night
he was sitting talking cheerfully, when
he was seized with paralysis of the
heart, brought ou by the shoock sustained ut the accident, and died shortly
afterwards. Francis was 73 yean old
and was over 20 yean consul for the
U. S. at Victoria, B. O., and for the
past three yean has been U. S. consul
at St. Thomas and Port Stanley. HU
family resides in Victoria, and none of
his relatives were at his bedside when
he died. Flags are floating at half-
mast on all publio buildings. The
funeral will take place here to-morrow.
THE DEAD PRIME MINISTER.
Rome, Aug. 4.—The funeral of the
late prime minister, DcPrett, took
place to-day at Stradema, Twenty
thousand people were present King
Humbert and othen sent wreaths to be
placed on the coffin. There was no
religious ceremony. Clergymen bad
been ordered to refuse the rites of the
ohuroh owing to the fact that DePreti

vessels captured the entranoe to the
Thames River. During the manoeuvres a Nordonfelt burst on board the
torpedo boat Curlew and several seamen wore seriously injured. One of

INDIANS ON THE WAR PATH.
Atken, Minn., Aug. 4.—A hundred
Indians in warpaint an encamped near
the eity trying to secure the nleaae of
squaws arrested yesterday for committing depredations. Oitisens nor th*
camp are preparing for'a flight, as
serious trouble is feared.
THE PHOSPBEROUS FIBNS.
Naw York, Aug. 4.—All the prominent Irishmen of the oity deny aU
knowledge of Mooney who tried to destroy th* str. Queen yesterday. 3. O.
Meagher, editor of the MA FforW,
says the man had no connection with
that paper, and he believes that the
society Mooney claims to reprnant 1»
a myth. Mooney'. trunks hav* been
seined and will be searched te day. Sails _\ritish Columbian
Thnndar Svealrx, Aagast 4,1881.
Has me Mews Gone Dali?
In our issue of Monday we referred to the marked change noticeable in the attitude of the Vancouver iVetM towards this city. Wo
stated that tke time was when the
Neat thought Westminster would
never amount to much, and referred
to it as "hopelessly sidetracked."
Now, apparently, it had bogun to
see things in a new light, and perceived that the future of the "sidetracked" city had in it something
of promise; and we congratulated
our coremporary on his change of
tone. In its issue of yesterday
morning our ootemporary refers to
the article as intended as an attack
upon it, and proceeds to a broad denial and a challenge for proof that
it waa ever guilty of any disrespect
towards the Royal Oity. Really,
our cotemporary is incomprehensible, and does not seem to understand the simplest language. The
Columbian said nothing in its issue
of Monday whioh could possibly be
distorted into an attack on the News,
and we are sure our ootemporary is
not able to produce any sentence
that will bear such a construction.
On the oontrary, we distinctly congratulated it upon its level-hcadcd-
ness, and uttered not a word of
disparagement. With respect to
the previous attitude of the Nans
towards this oity, we have the proof
asked for. About the 26th or 27th
of November last (we cannot give
the exact date, but it was within a
day or two of the 27th) an article
referring to Westminster appeared
in Uie Htm headed "Hopelessly
Sidetracked." If our cotemporary
will turn over his fyle and examine
that article he will find these expressions used in reference to this
oity: "So far as the future of the
province is concerned, the royal city
will play no important part." "So
soon as the Canadian Pacific directors decided upon changing the
name of Granville to Vancouver
and making it the terminus for
their line, all hope for the royal city
having any particular future before
it was gone." "As it is, New Westminster is hopelessly sidetracked,
and is quite out of the running so
far as the future of the province is
concerned." We are sure our readers will admit that these quotations
are abundantly sufficient to justify
the assertion made by this journal
on Monday to the effect that the
News had once declared that Westminster had been hopelessly sidetracked and would not amount to
much; and if our cotemporary continues to deny that any change
has taken place in the sentiment of
the paper, we shall simply have to
withdraw bur congratulations. Our
cotemporary then proceeds to boast
of his large circulation which he
modestly estimates at more than
ten times that of the Columbian,
and further claims that in this city
his circulation exceeds that of the
Columbian! Well, when it comes
to making assertions the News might
aa well have multiplied by 100 as
by 10. He has no means of knowing what the Columbian's circulation is, and he is, therefore, working
purely on hia imagination, which
seems to have been wonderfully inflated by the gigantic opinion he
entertains of himself, He has
asked us to prove our assertions
respecting the News, and we have
done it: now we ask him to prove
his assertions respecting the Columbian! We have always endeavored
to maintain a friendly attitude towards our salt water cotemporary,
and we have certainly said nothing
which could afford him the slightest
pretext for his article of yesterday.
The circulation of the News in this
city, be it greet or small, is a matter
with which we have not con
earned ourselves. So long as our
ootemporary fairly represents the
interests of this city, and thus becomes a means of advertising it, we
shall have no reason to complain if
his circulation should grow to be as
large aa our own, The more papers
we have reaching out for our patronage the more likely are we to
have our resources and advantages
filacer] conspicuously before the pub
io. Thia has been one of the aims
of th* Columbian, and in so far as
the Newt contribute* to the same
result we cordially welcome its aid
and shall not unnecessarily quarrel
with ita method*. Our friend must
not, however, be above accepting
congratulations whan they are given
in a friendly spirit; and above all
her ought sot to insist upon making
a grievance where none exists, and
doing violence to ordinary language
for the purpose of constructing on
imaginary enemy upon which to
work off nil superfluous muscle.

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing Company
11JWTTBD.)
ON THE 10TB OF JANUARY, 1387,
the Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
ef New Westminster, to be known aa the
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Viotoria and Vanoouver. The object of
the new company la to continue tho pub*
lication of the British Columbian news-
paper and carry on a seneral printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
thoso whose individual interest tt will be
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland, There will be no
sleekening of the energy hitherto displayed in the management of the establishment, ud ita patrons may rely upon
receiving full value tor their money.
The Colombian will oontinue to be entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of inch schemes aa
may be considered in the publio interest.
The oonoera it now entirely separate from
any other business, the hook tpA
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. B.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
in his own name and for his own benefit,
It is desirable that a daily newspaper
should be maintained In thia oity, and
the new company asks for public patronage on the ground that it la engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote the
publio welfare, It asks that tht Columbian bt judged on iti own merits and
supported only so long ae ita polioy la .
enconslstt with its professions. In consequence of this business change all accounts due the concern must be settled
without delay ao that tha hooka of the
former oompany may be adjusted and
closed, Address all communications and

strange Fanaticism.
Paris, July 25.—A very extra-
ordinary case is about to come
before the high tribunal of Malaga. A few months ago a woman belonging to the village of
Torrox declared that the Virgin
Mary had appeared to her and
had ordered her to preach a new
gospel for the salvation of mankind, as the end of the world was
at hand. The woman's story
seems to haye^ been believed
without hesitation, and soon the
whole village was in a state of
religious frenjy. The woman
preached in favor of the abandonment, of earthly possessions,
and advocated a return to the
mode of life and habits of primitive man. During the height of
the frenzy a large fire was lighted in the village, into which the
converts to this fantastic superstition threw their valuables, furniture and clothes, men, women
and children dancing and shouting around the fire in a state of
complete nudity. ' Warned of
what was going on, the local
gendarmerie arrived only just in
time to save the infants from
being thrown into the fire by
their frenzied mothers, and to
prevent the houses of the village
from being set on fire.
The Shah's Visit.
London, July 30.—News that
the Shah of Persia is contemplating another visit to Europe has
set a chill of horror down the
spines'of the royal and imperial
residents of various continental
capitals, and recalled with vivid
clearness their former experience
with that slovenly monarch.
Visions of palaces turned into
pig-sties rise up before them, and
the prospect of another visit of
Nassrcddeen with almost absolute certainty of a second time
witnessing his unbridled indulgence in his swinish propensities,
turns them fairly sick with disgust. It is just possible that the
Shah's manners have improved
since he availed himself of the
opportunity of abusing European
hospitality a few years since, but
the chances are they haven't.
That the comments of the European press upon his disgusting
behavior at that time reached
Teheran there is no doubt, but
that there was a man in the Persian capital foolhardy, enough to
impart the gist of the journalistic
strictures upon his majesty's conduct to his master there is all
manner of doubt, and the probabilities are that the Shah is ignorant to this day that to befoul
the house of one's host is not a
proper way to requite his hospitality. Not that Nassreddeen is
an ignorant man; he is not; on
the contrary, he is an educated
man and in possession of a sufficient degree of shrewdness to'
prevent the hordes of French,
English and American capitalists, and adventurers as well,
from seizing upon the resources
of Persia and converting them
into sources of revenue for themselves, but yet he isn't shrewd
enough to avail himself of the
many opportunities of enriching
his country which abound almost
within gunshot of his palace.
However, it isn't the nature of a
Persian to seek for opportunities
of enriehment through industrial
channels, so there Is nobody to
find fault with for the- lack of
development of the country's resources. Indolence being a national trait in Persia, it is strange,
therefore, to read the announcement that the Shah's projected
tour of Europe is for the purpose
'of visiting continental industrial
centres, and the possibility is
suggested that the Persian ruler
has heen aroused by the repeated importunities of foreigners
for grants of franchises, privileges, etc., to the realization that
Persia can maintain factories,
construct railways, and till the
soil after the most approved
fashion, when he has learned
how, as well as the christian capitalist and the unchristianlike
speculator. If this is the case
and he is coming to Europe to
seriously study the various industries of the continent instead
of throwing champagne bottles
through plate-glass windows,
soiling Turkish carpets and otherwise disporting himself like a
hog out for a holiday, he will be
everywhere welcomed and treated with the consideration due to
a monarch who desires to improve himself, his country and
his people. If, however, he is
coming tb Europe merely for the
pleasure it would afford him to
repeat former exploits, it is safe
to say means will be found to
convey to his august Majesty
that his departure is more desirable than his company.

Mechanics Enough.—"A Contractor " writes to contradict the statement
mode in the Columbian yesterday to
the effect that there is a great scarcity
of men for building purposes ih this
city. Our correspondent expresses
the opinion that " if 20 mechanics
were to eome to the city they could
not find profitable employment." Our
correspondent, who is carrying on
building operations extensively, says
he hod no trouble in getting men, aa
more have applied for work than he
could employ. Although there is a
great deal of building going on in the
oity, he thinks a good deal said to be
in contemplation will never become a
reality. We may say that tho statement we mode yesterday was on the
authority of two contractors who are
now engaged in building, and we accepted it u reliable.
Okedital Lectures.—Rov. Geo. E.
Stokes arrived in this city yesterday,
and is endeavoring to arrange for a

doctor, who ia a Jew of the tribo of
Levi, lectures on the customs and manners of tht people of Palestine. Hois
a graduate of Oxford, and holds a de-
ploma in medicine from Kings College,
London. He had charge of the last
American exploring expedition which
started from Sinai and followod the
route of the Israelites through the
great desert to Phoenicia, east and west
of tho Jordan to the land of Persia.
Disguised as a Mohammodan ho visited the Holy Kaaba in Mecca, and proceeded thence to Medina and visited
the birthplace of Abraham, Isaac and
Jacob. If arrangements can be made
the doctor will lecture in this city on
the 26th, 27th and 20th of the present

of miners and prospectors hare gone
into Cariboo siaeo last spring. While
there ia nothing to warrant the assertion that there it t boom in mining
matters, everything gee. to indicate a
decided change in the lino of all such

Railway Rumors. — The Seattle
Gazette states that the Seattle. Lake
Shore & Eastern, and the Seattle &
West coast railways ore about to pass
into tho hands of tho Northern Pacific,
because there is a look of funds in the
local companies. It further states that
if the Northern gets control of theBe
schemes it will run tho lino from a
point near Renton, along the east shore
of Lake Washington through Whatcom to the boundary line. In this
event Seattle would be side-tracked.
We aro of opinion that the statement
will turn out to be without foundation.
The pooplo of Seattle control tho pro-
posod local roads, and they nre too
wide awake to allow any such miB-
fortuno to overtako them.
BorconiNa the C.P.B.—A meeting
of tho Victoria board of trade was held
on Tuesday to consider the conduct of
the 0. P. R. in permitting tlie China
steamers to pass by that city without
calling on the inward passage. Some
very large statements were made, and
it was resolved that an effort should be
made to induce the merchants of Victoria to boycott the C. P. R. unless
the steamers wero ordered to call. It
was stated that goods no w coining from
China by the 0. P. R. steamers for
Viotoria were landed at Vancouver
and lightered from that plaoe to Viotoria at tbe cost of the importers.
Victorians claim that it will be just as
convenient and cheap for them to got
China goods by way of San Franolsoo.
But the San Francisco route will be
five or six days longer than the C.P.R.
route, and the goods will require to be
transhipped all the same. The action
of tbe board of trade looks very muoh
like thai of the man who cut of his
nose to spite his face.

The Opinm Smuggling Case.
VFhnt   HcLphu  Said lu Winnipeg—An
Improbable Story,
McLean, who is accused of smuggling large quantities of opium from
Victoria to Chicago over the O. P. It.,
was interviewed in Winnipeg and
mnde a very fishy defence. Tbe Sun
says: McLean is a cute-looking little
fellow who has speut much of his time
on the Pacific boats, and must of necessity be 'familiar with nil the tricks
of the smuggling trade. He stoutly
denies any intention of smuggling, and
asserts that he shipped tlie goods to
London, Ont, where he has occasionally sent consignments before. The
opium is not consumed in London,
being shipped across the line in small
quantities. There is money in the
business, as the American duty is 810
a pound, while it is but $5 in Canada.
The opium is manufactured by Chinamen in Victoria, and uf the raw
material brought fiom China, and is
sold in Victoria for $10 a pound. It
is worth $12 in London, Ont., and
brings $25 in Chicago, hencp the de*
sirability uf smuggling. But to return
to Mr. McLean's story. Ho asserts
that ho was followed from Victoria by
three sharpers, who succeeded in bribing the C. P. 11. agent to change tlie
address and send it to Chicago. He
says thoir object waa to get it away
from him and sell it in the States. He
notiaed them on board the train and
thinking all was not right he entered
the baggage car and discovered the
change that had been made in the address on tho goods. He wired front
Kamloops to Mr. Anderson, tlie baggage agent here, to stop the goods
hero, giving tho number ot the checks,
etc. He again wired from Broadview
to the same effect and of course they
were held. At Winnipeg he met one
of the shurpers, who tola him his ob-
i'ect was nut to get the goods away,
mt simply to wait until they were
across the line and then request McLean to "divy" or he would split.
McLean produced his railway ticket,
which was to London, Ont, He says
although he had shipped opium to
London beforo, this was tha last consignment he intended to bother himself with.
Sncccssoru. W. It. Men.
A well-known railway man of Hamilton said: "It maybe that the training on the old Great Western was particularly thorough as well as that tho
men who worked in those stuffy offices,
as you call them, had greater natural
abilities, but it is certain that no road
in America, I don't care of what ex-
tout, has sent out so many men who
hare risen to the top in railway lute.
The old offices on the hill have been a
regular nursery of railway men. William Edgar, General Passenger Agent
of tho Grand Trunk; James Charlton,
of the Chicago & Alton; G. li. Spriggs
of the Nickle Plate; J. F. McLure, S.
R. Callaway, young John Byrne, General Passenger Agent of the Oregon
Railway & Navigation Company, aud
dozens on dozens of others who now
hold leading positions on the most important roads on the continent, aU
worked there, and you will find old
Great Western boys more than holding their own from St. Paul to Texas,"
