A Futile Hope,
Bone ot the opponents of tlie settlement bill protest to believe tbat it
nay still be defeated, notwithstanding the very large majority by
whieh it passed the legislative astern
bly. It hat to be ratified bythe
federal parliament, they Bay, and
there it may yet be killed. The
hop* it an utter delusion. Tbe settlement bill will pass the Dominion
house tor the very tame reasons that
patted it in the local. The measure
waa thoroughly discussed between
Sir Aleiander Campbell, tlie authorised agent of the Dominion government, and tho provincial cabinet. It
wat presented before the local house
M an agreement to whioh tbe two
governments were mutually pledged.
The provinoial house accepted it, and
it waa oarried because it oould not
be rejected without serioutly disturbing th. interests of the province and
destroying the hopes of immediate
progress which had lately sprung in-
" to life. On tht strength of the unmistakable -ndorsation which the
bill received in the bouse lust spring,
the government of British Columbia
had committed itself and the country
to the settlement hill in suoh a way
that it could nut be it'iaii'loued. And
the I 'onii-iion government are juit
aa thoroughly counuitted to the
scheme. They Imve alresdy token
over the dry-dock und paid to the
province (130,000 on ttccimui uf it.
They have made a coi.truct for t'!..-
construction of th<- ialu.i.l niiUiiv,
and Work on that mil wny is now
iu prugrem. . They have estal.lisbe.1
. Dominion land ollice iu Victoria,
and .re preparing at rapidly as
possible to put the mainland railway laud, on tbe market. The
Dominion government cannot pes-
aibly withdraw from the ugreement,
and Sir John Macdonald has a big
enough majority in the House of
Commont to ensure itt adoption.
To alt iutents and purposes the settlement bill is passed, and the pee -
pi. ot British Columbia may without hesitation accept!*. Notwith-
standing all that wt have heard from
the opjKHjition organs, and the Nanaimo Free Press, about the change
of public, opinion, on thii bill, there
wat very little indication of auch a
change during th. debate. The
opinion, of the people of Nanaimo
have undoubtedly changed, and also
of . few settlements .on the island,
We give the people of Nanaimo
credit for sincerity iu their opposition to the bill. Indeed we are inclined to sympathise with them in
their effort! to have the railway
clause expunged, We have alwaya
believed the island railway a mistake, if it must coat the province
nearly 2,000,000 acre, of valuable
landa. But we have pointed out
daring th. late agitation that opposition to the settlement came too
late. The bill must pan or the
country muat suffer in other waya
most seriously. It it to be hoped
that Mr. Dunsmuir tnd his associate, will use most discreetly the
franchise placed in their hands.
They can do very much towards
soothing tho disquietude which th.
passage of the bill hat created at
Nanaimo and elsewhere sn the
itltnd. They have it in their power
to assist greatly or letard the prosperity, of the island. It is very
fortunate that this power ahould
hava fallen to a company of which
Mr. Dunsmuir is a prominent'meui-
ker. His interests are bound np
with those of the province, and we
feel certain lie will not misuse the
special privilegea granted to him
■nd bi. company by the settlement

Paid in His Uwn Coin.
"I waa in Orange county the other
day," laid a lawyer, "and heard uf the
death of an. old man 1 Imd known
there, and ir recalled a put: iliar cum* of
retributive justice in tlmt iunilly.
"Yean a^o the old nm. owned one
of the beat farina in the county, and
his son assisted him in yorkiii" it.
This sun married and had a aim. When
the grandson was about 15 years of age
hia father augmented to the grandfather
that, aa ho was growing uld and had
worked bird all his life. In- tuke things
easy the rest of his days. He iit-kod
the old man to deed the farm tu him
aud let him cake sole charge of it, w ith
the aid of the grandson. Ue promned
the old fanner & Rood, home and an
easy life as long us he lived. The old
man finally deeded the property tu his
son.
"No KHiner had he obtained the
title to the property than the son began a system of the most heartier!
treatment of his father, Ue compelled
him to* work harder than he had ever
done fur himself, would net permit liim
to cat'at the family table, and subjected him to all kinds of persecutions,
The grandson protested in vain against
thia treatment of his grandfather, .md
finally the old man left the horni tiiat
he had made and found an asylum in
the county poorhouse.
"After a while the son got badly into
debt, and so anxious was lie to escape
the payment of his obligations that he
made a deed of the farm to his sun.
Everything moved smoothly fur a time,
until one day tie father gave some
directiuna that did not agree with the
ion's ideal, anTT the latter refused to
consent to them. The father declared
that his wishes ahould he carried out,
and ordered his son to leave the place.
The son, however, reminded him that
he held the title to the farm himself,
and that, aa they could nut get al- ng
together, the father would have to go,
aud he did.
"After the departure of his father
the son re-establialied hia grandfather
iu possession of the (arm, deeding buck
everytfiing. The old man, however,
gave the farm absolutely tn his grandson, who provided amply fur the old
man until liu died. The buys hither
was oflttrtsd a home >'ii tie old place,
but he refused to accept anything b >t
the title tu it ail; and tho lust tune !
heard nf him he wus working as a farm
hand in New Jersey."

Uow I cilia was Warned.
An Italian wriur on the dreadful
catastrophe whicli occurred sn recently
on ihe island of Ischia, mentions tin me
prognostications of an earthquake
which are derived from minimis. They
were observed in every place where the
shocks were such as to lm generally
perceptible. Some minutes hefore they
were felt the oxen and the cows began
to bellow, the sheep and tlit- gout-*
bleated, and rushing in confusion one
on the other, tried to break down the
wicker work nf the folds. The dujs
howled, the geese and the fowls were
alarmed and made much noise; the
horses which were fastened in their
stalls wore greatly agitated, leaped up
und down and tried to luck tlie halters with which they were attached to
tho mangers; those on the road stopped suddenly and snorted iu a very
strange way. Tiio cats were very much
frightened and tried to conceal themselves, or their hair briatted up wildly.
Rabbits and moles were seen tu leave
their holes; birds roae as if soared from
the places on whioh they hud alighted;
and tish left the bottom of the sea and
approached the shores, where at some
Slaces great numbers were taken.
Iven ants and reptiles abandoned, iu
clear daylight, their subterranean holes
in great disorder, many hours before
the shucks were felt. The dogs, a few
minutes before the first shock tonlr
place, awoke their sleeping masters by
barking and pulling them, as if they
wished to warn their masters of the
impending danger, and many persons
were thus enabled to save themselves.
Highly Aokekaih.b.—Onu very valuable feature of Dr. Low's Pleasant
Worm Syrup is, that It is highly agreeable to take, and all varieties of Worms,

Marrying a Widow.
A few days ago a man with humble
expression and wearing a summer suit
of clothes applied to one of the railroad
passenger agents fur a dead head pas.
sage to Toledo. "Why du yuu want
to go tu Tulcdo?" "To git married."
"Aud you haven't any minify T "Not
above twenty-five cents." "Hadn't ynu
better be .worth your fare to Toledo
before taking a wife on yuur hands to
support I" "Vou don't understand the
case," persisted tho man. -'I'm goinx
to marry a widow worth at leuat $5,000,
and the first thing I shall do trill bti to
remit you tho price of a ticket. I'm
poor, and the widow knows it, but she
marries me for love*' He protested
so long and earnestly that hu waa finally passed down tho road. Two days
elapsed and then a letter waa received
from him saying: "Heaven bless yuu
for your kindness! Reached here all
right, and married the widow according to programme, lt turns out that
she isn't worth u copper. In this
emerpency may I usk yuu th pass ui
both to Detroit, where I hum hopes cf
striking a job?"—Detroit Free Press,

A Judob Attacked inOouht.—A
vicious attack was made on Judge
Cowing'a person yestorday while no
was engaged in tne trial of a caso in
the court of general sessions. It was
noticed by the court officers that lie
appeared uervoQi, and he finally loaned
over and appeared intent on searching
for something. A littlo mouse hod
mounted his shoo and was nibbling at
his ankle. Tho 'judge seined the little intruder by tho tail and threw him
on the floor, where he waa killed.—

SaUrday Horning. Dec. 39. IM8.
Tlie Standard dissents from our
claim that the central prison, if
tablished, should be located ut this
city. It snys "Viotoria ie tlw groai
contra of business nnd.population
it ib accessible from all parts of the
coust, aud when tho railway is in
running order it can be easily reached from tho interior." If our con
temporary is correct Victoria must
Imve been lately moved from its
eld site. It used to stand upon
the extreme southern coast of the
province. It is not in-nny sense
the centre of tbe population of British Columbia,' It is accessible
enough, and so is San Francisco;
but what we aaid, and now repeat,
is that it is not central, and a jn-i-
8on erected there could not be a
central prison. New Westminster
is just aa accessible as Victoria,
and wilt be far more so when "the
railway is in runniug order." Our
contemporary will have to pub forward some belter plea than that.
High Schools.
We suppose that tbo government j
will, during the present session, submit their high school policy.    It has
been generally understood that the
Victoria high school is to be abandoned as a government institution at
the close of this year. - When asked
to take over the high school in this
city the government declined on the
ground that they proposed to confine
their educational appropriations entirely to tho public schools, and leave
high sohool work to private enterprise.  At the time-Tuii Columbian
took exception to this policy, und
pointed out the importance of making some provision for higher education,   In the piesent condition of
the province we do not believe the
government would be justified in assuming any heavy financial responsl
lilities in tbis direction.   The publio school system ef tbe province is
exceedingly liberal, the whole cost
being borne by the government.   A ]
common school education is undoubtedly of the first importance; but we
think it is in the interest of the
country that the government should
also encourage and assist higher education.   We have before suggested
that au appropriation of about $1000
or $1200 be made for each of the
high schools at Victoria and New
Westminster, and tlut tho use of
the   buildings   already   erected   be
given free.   Thn balance necessary
to mako the schools self-Htistuiuing
could  be made  up of   fees, ur, if
necessary, local   contributions.    In
this way there would be no difficulty
in maintaining efficient high schools
at tbe principal centres of  popula
tion at a very small cost to the government.   Such an arrangement, wo
believe, would meet the wishes of
the peoplo of thii] city, and ■ "?M- to
satisfy Victoria.    Whenever JN.
mo, or any other  town, felt itseJt
For the Capitol.
.As  tlie British Columbia representatives   arc  about to leuvo  fur
Ottawa it may be proper tu mention
some of the mutters which should
engage  tlieir attention on arrival nt
the capital.    The distance between
Ottawa and British Columbia is so
great thut very much responsibility
rests   upon   tho shoulders of   our
representative;:.    It is seldom thnt
we are  favored with a visit from a
federal minister, and when one does
come his stay is generally so brief
thut it is impossible for him to become acquainted with tho condition
and wants of the provinco.   In the
first place  we  hope such taws muy
bo passed as will enable the railway
lands to become available for settlement on reasonable  terms.     It is
understood  that these lauds arc to
be sold for $1 an acre; but the Dominion  act under which they are to
be administered is utterly ununited
to this province, and must not be
enforced.     We hope, also, that our
representatives  will  urge upon the
Dominion government tbe necessity
of constructing roads through their
lands.     We have already pointed
out  thu unreasonableness of expect
ing this  provinco   to make roads
through  piopeity from the snle of
which it derives no revenue what
ever.     This is clearly the duty of
tho  federal   government, nnd   the
sooner it is  recognized  and acted
upon  tho  better will it be both for
the  government and the country,
Every   day   the  need of  a moro
rational   and   efficient mail service
for tho mainland is becoming more
apparent.     Our mails from the east
are now carried over tbo Northern
Pacific Kailway to Tacoma.    From
Tacoma   to Victoria   the  mails go
three times a week: from Tiicomu to
New Westminster they don't go at
all. .They   come   by way of Victoria, and  are sometimes subjected
to   delaya   which   are  exceedingly
annoying.    It ia time that a mail
route  was established from tho ter
minus of the Northern Pacific to
this city direct.    It should not be
less   frequent   thnn   three times a
week.    We believe such a service
could  be  secured   at a cost very
trifling in comparison with the results.   The direct mail route would
speedily become tho principal freight
and   paiifiBnger  route between the
outside   world   and   this province,
and it would very greatly facilitate
immigration.      We   presume   that
trains will be running from this city
to Lytton before the end of next
summer, and   thero  sbould   be  a
daily mail service with the interior.
The subsidy for a mail between this
city   and   Nanaimo should also be
increased sufficiently to induce some
person to perform the service.   The
Chineso question  will undoubtedly
come up for discussion in the federal
house.    We believe there exists now
no   reason why the immigration of
Chinamen   should   not be stopped.
A   year ago  there  was very little
white  labor  to  be obtained iu tin*
ptoVince, and  very few indications
of vliite immigration.      The railway contractor  was then quite unable to secure men enough to carry
on his contract, and the employment
of Chinese  was almost a necessity.
But   tbo  conditions are now very
much changed.   Hundreds of white
men have come to the province, uud
tho   Chineso   population   bus been
almost doubled.    We need no more,
and the experiences of the past are
■itlicient to  justify us in demand

thore could be shown a Hufficient
number of pupils prepared for high
school work to justify tho exgieiuU
tn re. In consequence of the absence
of a high school on the mainland
several of our citizens have been
forced to send their children to Ontario for tbe purpose of obtaining
the advantages of higher education.
Tliis is an exceedingly expensive and
unsatisfactory way out of the difficulty, and is available only to those
possessed of considerable means.
People of small income cannot afford
it, and must content themselves with
giving their children merely a common school training. Within tbe last
six months at least four young ladies
have gone from this city alone to
Ontario schools, and there are many
others who do not go simply because
they can't afford it. The high school
which existed in this city for about
two years was well attended, although the fees were too high, as it
received no government .assistance
and the work it did is admitted by
all to have been most efficient, We
hopo tho government will make pro
virion for the establishment of a
high school at this city and Victoria.
Bx Caruvl What You Eat.-The

fruit and too much meat, cheese, etc.
Whatever may be the cause. Freeman's
Worm Powders'are speedy and safe to
cure- they destroy the worms, and con-
tata tiwir own cathartic to expel thsm.
people. It is to be hoped the inain-
lut.d representatives will enter their
protest against the tendency to centralize all Dominion interests at
Victoria, greatly to the inconvenience of maiulanders. Thero should
be some oflicer of the murine de
partiwiiit resident on the mainland,
and thera should be a Dominion
land and immigration olliee at this
city, It is of the greatest itnpor
tunce that tho channel nt the mouth
of Fraser Kiver should be carefully
looked after, but so long as that
duty is left in the hands of n
Victorian it will be neglected. We
hope a renewed effort will be made
to secure the construction of the
Okanagan-Spatlutncheen canal, This
work would be of immense advantage to the interior, and it wouldn't
cost much. There is a large sniplns
in tho Dominion treasury, British
Columbia has contributed thore in
proportion to her population than
any other province towards this surplus, and her long-neglected iutet-SBts
should occupy u prominent place
during the coming session.

Dio Lewis's Mohthly.--The De-
cember number of this excellent monthly is befero us. Its contents are varied,
interesting and instructive, and it is
only |2.50 a year. Dr. DEo Lewis is
editor, and the publisher is Frank Seaman, 68 Bible House, New York. ■
The Were.—We have the first number of this new weekly journal, published by Mr. O. Blackatt Robinson,
Toronto., The paper is well printed
and the article* give promise of much
usefulness. It is independent and outspoken. The subscription is $3 a year.
Pou Moody Judiciary, — From
notices published elsewhere it wilt be
eeen that a change hat been made
In the judiciary at Port Moody.
Mr. McGillivray's appointment as
stipendiary magistrate has been cancelled, and he and Hr. Butchsrt
have been appointed justices of
the peace. W# are sorry this change
bu heen made, We believe Mr.
McGillivray's appointment gave great
satisfaction tothe people of Port Moody,,
aud that it was the best arrangement
ihat could have been nilde under the
etreumstanew. It should have been
allowed to stand for the present at
least. The appointment of Mr. But-
chart u magistrate we think is an
excellent one. Mr. Butohart hss held
ft similar position for-eeveral yssrs in
Ontario, and is a gentlemen who, we
believe, is highl; respected by the
poople ol Port Moody.
Ontario Elections. --The elections
for the Ontario house which took place
in West Siroeoe and West Middlesex
on the 14th innt, havo. created a good
deal of interest, lieuuue it was hoped
they might lead tn the defeat uf the
Mowat tidminist ration. Both constituencies, however, elected govornment candidates. In Cardwell Hum-
mill (Conservative) was elected for the
Commons, and in West Middlesex Mr.
Cameron (Reform) wab returned.

Winter Oarnivai,.-—The success of
the carnival held in the ice palace at
Montreal last year has induced the
citizens to repeat the performance this
winter. Elaborate preparations are
being made, and ic is certain that an
immense number of visitors will go to
Montreal to witness the imposing spectacle. Ths carnival will open on the
4th of February, nnd continue for a
whole week. Lust year the icn palace
was a gorgeous affair and universally
admired. The palace this winter will
be both larger and move beautiful.
Cheap Rates to British Columbia.
—Mr. A. H. Taylor, of this city, who
was the originator of the low rates und
special trains to Manitoba from this
district, has succeeded in securing satisfactory rates for freight and pasneu-
gers, and will despatch a train for Vancouver Island and British Columbia
about the beginning of February next.
Quite a number <*f people from this
section of the country have innuifestod
the desire to go west if suitable arrangements could be made, and it is
likely a goodly number will leave in
tho spring through the medium mentioned.— Ottawa Cor. Mail,
Police Court.—On Thursday Pete
Buckley, an Indian, got 0 mos. for
having liquor in his possession, and
Pope (a white man) got 6 mos. for
vagrancy. Indian Charley was given
the option of a tine or 2 huh. lor having liquor in his possession. Dr. Walsh
brought a charge of assault against Mr.
King. Mr. Armstrong appeared for
the prosecution, and Mr. McColl for
the defence. The assault was committed some timo ago, Mr. McColl said
his client was willing to admit of a
common assault, but intimated that
there had been great provocation. The
dft. was lined 913 and costs. Yuen
Chong charged Ah John with embezzling $110. Ah John said ho hid only
received 905, aud intended to piv it
back. He was committed for trial at
next, assize. Mr. -Bole appeared for
Chong.       v

A Typographic Euror.—The Port
Moody Gazetteexplains that its firat issue
was a typographic error. We are quite
disposed to accept the apology, and
hope it will nut occur again. We d<>
not agree with our cotemporary, how
ever, that The Columbian was bound
to give the new paper a favorable
notice. There ia no rule of journalism that requires a newspaper to pronounce good what is evidently bad.
The Port Moody Gazette, we have said,
is almost wholly a reprint of the Guardian, aud it claims to be something
that it is not. It announced it«elf independent, whereas its editorials were
the veriest drivel of partywm. WhSii
the Gazette becomes 'independent in
fact, snd is printed where it professes
to be printed, we shall be very glad to
extend to it overy courtesy.* But it
must stand and be judged by its own
merits.

Christmas Services.—Services were
held in Holy Trinity on Christmas day
by tho Ven. Archdeacon Woods. The
church decorations were not as elaborate as usual in consequent, we believe, of a lack of' material at the disposal of the ladies, and a lack of gentlemen to supply materials-' Suoh decorations as appeared, however, were
tasteful and appropriate. Tho early
celebration took place at 811.111. and
morniug prayers aud cekibr.it iui at 11,
There was a large congregation. In
the Roman Catholic church Pontifical
high mass was said at 12 o'clock in tho
morning by the Rt. Rov. Bishop
D'Herbomoz, assisted by FuthoiH Horris and Shiol, uud a sermon suit hio to
the occasion wus preached bv i^aihor
McQuicken, Masses were also said nt
8 and 10:30 a.m. The congregations
were large, the church being completely
filled. Tho decorations were tastefully
mode, but were uot equal to those of
some previous years. Service was hold
in the Methodist church at 11 a.m.,
when a Christmas sermon was preached
by the Rev. E. Robson.
 . «. ~—
Banh or Hope Entertainment.—
The entertainment in the Skating Rink
on Christmas night- was very successful.
There were over 300 present. The
programme opened with a chorus of
about 00 Band of Hope children. Then
came the word "Prohibition" given by
11 little children each one of whom
held up a letter of tho word and repeated some appropriate lines. There
was a recitation by Johnny McLeod;
a dialogue by Ward Bell and Del
Shiles; dialogue by Genie Fates,
Geo, McMurphy and Tims. Mclnnes;
scripture temperance texts by four
boys; songs by Mui^ie Mirchie and
Mildred Major; it duet by James and
Miriam McMurphy; a sermon on tobacco by Willie Mclnnes; and n recitation by John Fales, 4 years uf age.
The shadow pantomime was well given
and produced roam of laughter. After
a- dosing chorus the Xums tree was
unveiled and each member <-f tlie Band
of Horn received a present. Master
Thos, Mclnnes, president of the society, occupied the chair, and Master
Willie Mclnnes acted as Santa Claus
and distributed tha presents.
 . ^	
There's Many a Sup!—The old
adage found a very provoking illustration on Christmas. Not a thousand
miles from Mud Bay there is a man
who has been for some time enamored
of a native damsel of his acquaintance.
He determined that he would wed her
on Christmas eve. Having taken un
"mountain dew" enough to fortify
himself for tho occasion, ho sent for
tho minister, The minister came, but
discovered that thero was no license,
and, of course, rofused tu perform the
ceremony, Tha bridegroom prospective then gave $10 to a messenger and
despatched him at once to this city for
a license. The messenger arrived here
with the 910 ou Christmas day, but
foolilhly made known to some city
friends the object of the trip. His
friends invited him to take a drink,
and he returned the compliment. In
the afternoon he found hiuiielf well
filled with internal applause, but com-
Jiletely empty as to bis pockets. His
riends, moreover, instructed him that
the government ofiiee was always
closed on Christmas day, and that
It would be impossible to procure a
license, even if he had mon**-}- tn pay
for it, The messenger returned tu

vTaB Choral Union.'—the Vneert
on Wednesday-night was not well attended. We supposo the wretched
weathor is very much responsibly, but
roally the efforts of tho union to furnish musical entertainments during the
winter months ought to meet witli a
much moro hearty appreciation. Tlie
firat part of the programme consisted
of Schubert's beautiful cantata "The
Snng of Miriam," in wliich the strength
of tho union showed itself. The second
part opened with n selection from
Beethoven played on the piano by Mr.
Loewenberg. This was followed by
two Christinas carols. Bishop Sillitoe
sang "Nazareth," and the anthem
"Sing and Rejoice" was sung by the
union. Tho bishop and Mr. Loewenberg played an operatic duet trcm the
Bohemian Girl, and Mrs. Sillitoe song
"The Worker." The "Moy Fly," a
trio by tlie bishop and Mm, Sillitoe
and Misa Woods, was followed by Mr.
H. L. DeBeck iu "When the Leaves
Begin to Fall." "Thine Eyes so
Bright," a sextet tt, and "God save the
Queen," finished the programme. With
the exception of the sextette, all the
pieces were welt rendered, and Mrs.
Sillitoe's solo was probably the most
highly appreciated.

Masonic—At a communication of
Union Lodge No. 0, A.F.&A.M.,
held on St. John's Day, the following
officers were installed for the ensuing
Masonic year: Bro. J. Buie, W.M.;
Bro. H. Hoy, S.W.j Bro. W. A. Duncan, J.W.; Bro, Jno. Hendry, Treas,;
Bro. Win. Howay, Sec.; Bro. S. Trapp,
S.D.; Bro, J. D. Rae, J.D. i Bro. Wm.
Elson, Tyler. After the ceremony had
been concluded, the brethren repaired
to the Occident Hotel and partook uf
an excellent supper. Tho spread was
first-class and reflected great credit
upon Mrs. Austin, who presides over
that department. Upon returning to
the lodge room a pleasant incident in
connection with tho festivities was the
findentation of a handsome silver gob-
et tu Bro. J. 0. Hughes, W.P.M. of
Mount Hermon Lodge No 7, Moodyville. The goblet bore the following
inscription: "Presented by Union
Lodge, and Iub Masonic brethren of
New Westminstor, to Bro. J. C.
HughcB, us a token of appreciation and
esteem: St. John's Day, 1883." Tho
gift was presented by the W.M. accompanied by nn appropriate address
to Wliich Bro. Hughes made a feeling
reply. After spending a pleasant evening the brethren separated at 1:30.
The Free Readinu Room. -One of
the greatest drawbacks to tho temperance reform, both in this citv and elsewhere, has been the want of a suitable
resort whero young people might spend
their evenings ngivt-ahly, and removed
frum temptation. The free reading
und coffee room opened by the Women's Christian Temperance Union
and Blue Ribbon Club is intended to
meet thu circumstance, and is a practical step iu the right direction. Young
peoplo love society und amusement.
If ihey cannot satisfy that love in a
rational wuy, they will go whero it may
be satisfied under circumstances which
are anything but favorablo to the development of virtue. The reading
room, ns has already been stated, is in
the basement of the Metho-lir-t church.
It is large and pleasant. It has heen
newly painted, and the walls have
been ornamented with a number of
pictures. The room is well lighted
aud heated. Thore are a number of
newspapers, magazines nnd books on
the tables and shelws for the use pf
visitors, and fresh additions of reading
matter aro being constantly.made.
The leading newspapers of thi** province are always kept on fyle. The
ladies have arranged to supply hot
coffee and light refreshments to those
who wish for them, for which a small
fee is churned. Tho room is kept open
every night from 7 to 0.30. Visitors
may read or converse as they choose,*
and everything is free, except I lie refreshment*. We ure glad to learn
that the number of visitors has been
very encouraging to the members of
the societies whose generosity has provided this very comfortable retreat,
It ought to enlist the sympathy and
support of alt true philanthropists.

Burglar) at Port Haney.   .
On Friday of last week about 250
railway men received their pay at Port
Haney, and a large proportion of them
got on thn jjiroe. Through tho day
and night tho placo was kept in perpetual disturbance on account of tne
howling uf these men. During the
niirht Mr. D. Dockstvadvr, who keeps
a general store near tlie landiint,
thought he heard Borne one in-ide. Hu
got up and went through the store, but
found no person. Ou Saturday morning, however, he discovered that a laruo
pane of glass had beeu removed-from
the front window, and that the uti-re
had been robbed. The pane had beeu
taken out without breaking tho window, and the handle of a tooth-i'i'ush
wus found, with one end pointed like
a cold chisel, which had evidently been
used to remove thu putty. The burglars had taken a considerable quantity
of goods. Among the things taken
were two suits of clothes, 0 pairs of
boots, 3 pairs gaiter, 24 pairs sucks, 12
pairs woolen mits, 2 pkgs. underclothing, 2 caps, a quantity of suspenders, pocket knives, pipes, tobacco, oto,
Mr. Docksleader estimates his Ions at
about |300. He went at once for a
search warrant; hut iu consequence of
tho absence of Mr. Harris he did not
obtain the warrant until about midnight. Iu the mean time most of the
men had left, about 75 h-ivinu been
discharged from the works. Mr. Haney
wus appointed special constable, and
seurchud the tents, but fouiuf nothing,
Mr. Dooksteader has uo clue, and it is
feared tho burglars have esoaped with
their booty. Last summer wo urged
the appointment ef a constable at Maple
Ridge, and nn appropriation was made
by the government for that purpose;
but as the railway force was considerably reduced shortly afterwards wo
suppose it wss considered unnecessary
to expend the appropriation. Within
the last mouth or two there have been
two burglaries and a murder committed at Maple Ridge, and in every cose
justice has failed to reach the guilty
parties, We 'are also informed that
there is a great deal of drunkenness
and disorder about Maple Ridge, and
it is permitted to exist without interference. We believe a constable should
be at once appointed for that place.
The appointment might be a temporary
one, to terminate when the occasion
for it hu ceased.

The Bridge Uiver Mines.
A few parties aro sending in provisions to tho Bridge River mines. No
doubt there will bu quite a rush iu the
spring as there is gold there in paying
quantities and it is easily got. The 1st
of August is the best time for a stranger
to go in. From what I can iind out
there is a long distance that has the
appearance of being ob good mining
ground as thut which bus been worked.
Most of the gold thus far has been
taken out of tho lowest burs. Some
partieB, however, have found good pay
in the high burs. The mines are about
three daya' travel from hero by way of
Setoii lake The climate is mild, the
same as here. All hands could have
washed most of tho winter if they had
known it and got plenty of provisions
in. In May, Juno and July the river
is too high to work what are supposed
to be tho best paying claims. Another
account nays: The Bridge river mines
aro attracting considerable attention.
Two Welshmen named Tom Jones and
Williams mado in less than a month
$527 in 4 feet wincing. Tho last day
thoy made 827 and havo the same claim
to go back tm ;n the spring. Tho diggings aro GO miles from Lillooet and
the gold is coarse. There has been no
sleighing us yot.— Colonist Lilloott Cor.

From I'ort KvOdv,
(Correspondence of the Columbian.) ■
The first social gathering of the citizens of Poit Moody took place on
Christmas eve, in Capt, Clarke's new
hotel. The hall was vory tastefully
decorated with evergreens, and through
the kindness of Capt. Reid, of the
bark Stormy Peterel, tho committee
secured the flags of the vessel, which
added much to the bright appearance
of the room. Across the hall, and
facing the entrance, were the words,
"A Merry Xmas." About 7.30 the
peoplu began to assemble, and beforo
8 o'clock tho lower part of the building was crowded, aud the question was
frequently asked, "Whore did all the
people come from!" The chairman,
Sir. T. 8. McGillivray, S. M., after
opening the mcetiiig with nn appropriate speech, introduced Miss Ethel
Hcslop, a flaxe»-haired cherub of five
summers, who iceited "Little Drops of
Rain" very prottily. Thu noxt piece
was a dialogue between Miss Nellie
and Master Albert Clarke entitled
"Porcupine Temper," and both did
their parts well. Then followed recitations hy Masters Willie Clarke und
Edwin Smith. Tho children's part of
the programme closed with a dialogue
between Miss Nellie and Muster Albert Clarke, the title of which was
"The Mother's Warning." Miss Nellie was supposed to be au old woman
giving her sun advice, and 1 must say
sho is a sage little mother. She really
did hor part well. I cannot refrain
from saying here that Mrs. Heslop
deserves great praise for tho state of
proficiency to which she has brought
her young pupils in this direction To
her energies tliu success <>f the entertainment is in a largo measure due.
After the recitations were over, the
chairman presented the prizes given by
Mrs. Heslop to her school children.
Col. Hamilton's namo was then announced for a reading, and was received' with applause, Mr. Court then
8ung,"Behind tho Scenes' in a vory
pleasing manner, aud Capt Clarke
gave "The Irish Gentleman ' iu such ti
style us to cull forth a storm uf n|l-
plaiise from the delighted listeners,
Mrs. Heslup sang "Butter Bide-i Wee"
most admirably, and wus loudly applauded, Mis. J, S. Fraser and the
Messrs. Fraser sang a very prettv
quartette called tlie  "Old Tennessee,"
and Mr..I. S. Fftwersnug "Mortality/1
givhig tho broguo to perfection. The
vocal part of the programme wub closed
with a song from Mr. T. H. Litster,
called the "Last Fierce Charge." Then
the fun uf the evening began, when
the "grab bag" wss announced. Most
of tho old bachelors sot presents in
the shape of rag babies, jumping*jacks,
&e. Our chief of police got a line rag
baby which ho caressed with conscious
pride, and took his scat with us pleased
an expression as a boy who has just
nut on his first pair of long pants.
The chairman got a fine baby with
very pronounced nose—just like its
pa's. Col. Hamilton got a jumping-
jack. Some very useful presents were
given away as well. Mr. J. T. Scott
was very happy iu his remarks to thu
smiling recipients of the different
prizes, Tho hall was then cleared,
the seats removed, tho ball was opened
and kept up till the wee ama hours.
Looking at it from every point, the
committee are to be congratulated on
the buccsbs uf the entertainment, there
being between two and three hundred
present. If those wbo wure there live
to see Port M-mily a great city, I am
sure tliat in calling up old memories
when the city wus in its Infancy, they
will remember with pleasure and pride
the pioneer enturtainmeut, and wilt
not despise "the day of buiuII things.'*
Two prominent citizens turned out on
Christmas day with plug hats, which
is contrary to the ordinance of Port
Moody. 'There will be a Sharpe lookout fur future offenders in this respect,
and the results may be Painefid.—l
have just been informed by Dr. Heslop tbat an 8-lh. baby has been added
to our population. The wife nf one ol
our residents presented the little
stranger us an Xmas box to her husband. Tliis is the second white child
born at Port Moody.—On Tuursday
there wero 3 drunks before the stipendiary magistrate. Jos. White was
fined 84 and costs, Rich. 1 lodgers §2

Surrey Roads.
EniTon Columbian.—I noticu that
3 our Clover Valley correspondent advises
correspondents in this vicinity to bo
careful about stating that theirs is the
"only direct road" and will benefit tho
largest number of settlers," as there are
other roads which might benefit a larger
number uf actual settlers; aud further he
is willing to leave it to the government
to say which road shall be built. It is
generally admitted that a stage and mail
road to connect with the United States
mail at Semiahmoo wonld be a great
benefit to this section and also to New
Westminster city. I submit, therefore,
that the old Semiahmoo wagon road is
the most direct for such a route; 2nd,
that it has the easiest gradients; 3rd,
that it has the firmest road bed; 4th,
that it is not liable to overflow; 5th, that
it has by far the largest number of travellers of auy road in the municipality during the Spring, Summer and Fall montlis
of the year; 6th, it has been the means
of taking more Chinamen out of the
country than all the efforts of our legislators; 7th, that it.will benefit more
actual settles than any other route; 8th,
thai it is badly needed by the settlers
of Bud Bay and vicinity; and, last, that
it. is the most practicable, common sense
mute between New Westminster and
Semiahmoo. I, for my part, am satisfied
to let the different routes stand upon
their i»crits,and am satisfied the Government will do what is right provided the
information whieh they act upon is correct. ,1 further challenge your Clover
Valley correspondent to dispute the correctness of any of the above, propositions.
I will go even further and assert that the
Coast Meridian road is liable to overflow
to such an extent as to be impassable
every winter; a!--v that tbo Yale road
across the Sei,i■ i.ioe fi. ts is in the same
condition; also, that the Hall's prairie
road across <ihe Nicomekl flats is liable
to Bimilar overflows. If he disputes this
I ask him to do so over his own name
aud 1 will take steps to prove the truth
of my statements. I ask, therefore,
where are the other roads of which hs
speaks ? I have been given to understand that a determined attempt is to bo
made by the settlers of Clover Valley to
induce the government to ignore the petitions sunt in praying for the construction' of a road to Semiahmoo via Mud
Bay, aud t for one think it is time to
quit throwing money Into such sink holes
as the Coast Meridian road has proved to
be. If tho government Bhould make the
blunder (which I scarcely think possible)
of going away around to build a road
through a bog, when the shortest road is
tlie bust, it certainly shall not be for
want of warning. —Yours truly,
Jons Olives,

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
And, throwing hev hands from her
as if she wero scattering dust, sho
turned away her white, haughty faco,
ns though she would never luok ou
him again.
And Philip' heurd her, and tried to
move his broken arm, but it foil useless to his side; and with a groan uf
despair, lio hid his fnco on his neglected wife's bosom, and bade her
tako him away.
"Mrs, HaKeldean," cried Loo, "this
is not the time fur revenge. Bring
Mr. Philip into the house," she continued, addressing the servants, "or
his blood wiU bo upon your mistress'
head, if you leave him out longer fn
this deadly cold. l)u you hoar me?"
she repeated, stamping her foot and
with her fair faco Hushed with anger;
"if you ure nien and not cowards,
obey me instantly."
"I defy them to," cried the haughty
lady of Hazlitt, "they dare not—who
uro you, Louie Mortimer, that you
presume to sot up your will against
mine'.' I tell you again, and all the
world may bo my witness, that that
lying traitor, Philip Hazeldean, shall
never cross my threshold again, living
oi- dead! Maunders, close the hall
door."
"Your curse be on your head, then,
you wicked woman," exclaimed Louie
with Hashing eyes; "but if there be
a human being here, bring blankets
and help me bear him down to the
inn, or I wilt carry him myself."
Mrs. Hazeldean swept back with n
mocking laugh, and the servants, no
longer under the influence of her
basilisk eyes, brought restoratives and
warm plaids and wraps, and carefully
and gently boro their unhappy master from the ill-fated grounds.
"The inn, Rose," said Louie, as
she watched the cortege out; "it is
only a quarter of mile, and the vicarage is farther on, I will he with
you before you reach the door. Now,
Nell," ahe continued, laying her large
white hands on my shoulders—and I
remember they felt to mo as strong
and trustworthy as ^ man's—-"go up
to our room, and pack up our boxes;
Fanchette will help you, and I'll bring
a fly for them in an hour or so."
"What do you mean, Louiol"
•'What I my," she repeated impatiently; ''nothing on earth shall induce me to sleep another night under
this wicked roof, neither shall you—
do you understand? Wo will stay at
the inn."
I acquiesced mournfully, and went
in; Fanchette came weeping to my
assistance.
"Madame," cried the faithful creature* hysterically, as she brought mo
some food and wine and pressed mo to
eat, "Madame lint locked herself In
hor apartments, nud is walking to and
fro like n wild thing; it will break
hor heart," iiuished the soil-hearted
Fanchotte, "she is very wicked and
omul aud hard as death, but it will
break her heart."
I thought so too, and even whilo I
hit revolted by her barbarous act,
some grain uf pity lingered iu mo for
tho wretched woman, who could be
capable of such terrible passions as to
make the adopted son of her love an
outcaBt, while he lay seemingly dying
at her feet,
YeB, I pitied her, for I believed
when the deadly rage was lulled, that
it would be exceeded in her remorse,
a reim-rse that would prey upon aud
waste her life, but with her would
never, never merge into a healing repentance.
Absorbed in tliese painful reflections, X did not hear Louie's footsteps
till ahe stood besido mo.
"How is he, Lou? oh, poor fellow,
will he die?"
"Die! not a bit of it; he is bruised
and shakon, and terribly cut, and one
of his arms fractured, but Dr. Black-
stone trusts there is no internal injury, and if we can keep him from
fever it may yet be well; aud oh,
Nellie, pray that he may bo restored
to his dear wife's love, who has so
generously forgiven him, nnd taken
him back into her faithful heart."
"But, Louie, I cannot understand—
do you?"
"Yes, I knew all last night; and
but for poor Philip's weakness and
vacillation all' might have beon explained, aud this terrible accident
avoided, but 1 cannot talk or breathe
in this house. Is everything ready,
Nellie?"
"Everything."
"Very well; I will ring for the men,
and give me your card, please. I am
gaing to write a few lines to our hostess. We have met with hospitality
and "kindness here, and we will nut
slink out of her doors like a thief-
hut, I will tell the truth, if I die for
it, nnd I will expose her for what she
is, a wicked, barbarous woman. Come,
let us go."
We went; the servants, crest-fallen
and respectful, watched ua out, and
one or two of them ventured a word
of excuse to Louie for the part they
had been taking, but she turned her
lace away.
"You aro all hirelings!" she answered "every one uf you serving for
wage -d not for lovo, or you would
never have carried yuur young master,
out like a dead dog, for the orders of
all the women in England. There,
drive on, coachman."
The man obeyed, and us we turned
the corner I saw a hnnd raise a blind
cautiously from an upper window, a
fair wrinkled hand sparkling with
brilliants, whioh I knew fur Mrs.
Hazeldeau's.
Louie saw it too, for sho bowed
gravely towards it, and thus we passed
for the last time through thn dragon-
guarded gates of Hazlitt, and live
minutes later stopped before the clean,
pleasant inn of the "Bald-faced Stag."
"I have got thain such nice apartments," said Louie, ns ahe presented
me to the comely landlady, "roomy,
clean and comfortable, and with a
warm, quiot aspect. Is lunch ready,
Mrs, Morgan?"
"Dear heart, yes," answered the
buxom Mra, Morgan, as Bho ushered
us into a quaint, hoinoly parlor, looking on the steep village atreet, just
over the creaking sign, with a roaring
tire, and a cozy meal laid but for two.
"Our bedroom, Nellie, is juat within here, Philip's is across the passage;
take off your bonnet, while I run
over and see if Rose has got him to
aleep."
"■"■ I was far too much in a dream to
think of disputing Louie's practical
suggestion, so I wandered into tho
little three-cornered room she had
pointed out, with a big brown bed in
ft, with its foot, in the fire-place, and
* two small diamoud-paned windows
commanding a view of tho stable-
yard; and while loosening my bonnet-
atrings, amused myself with looking
down for a long time on a red-headed
hostler rubbing dowti a attaining horse
m*mm*-***emmam*mmmm**mmm*
like wild-fire, and accompanying his
evolutions with a whisuing, buzzing
noise that whs perfectly inexplicable
tome.
After watching him for a good while
with a dazed sort of curiosity, I went
back to tho low-ceiled parlor, and,
curling myself up in the broad window-seat, resumed my lookout and
my rovcrio together.
And what I thought about I havo
not the least idea; but 1know that I
saw a basket of apples roll down the
street, und an old' woman and two
boys ran after them and picked thom
up, and a fuzzy little terribr ran too,
who barked at the buys and licked
their faces when they stooped, and
entangled himself in the old woman's
dress, and mado himself generally
useful.
Aud I know I saw ono of tho boys
tako a good bite out uf one of tho
muddy upples, and was cuffed heartily for it; and a wagoner in a smock
flock, drinking at tho inn door, took
his ruddy sunburnt faco out nf the
pewter and Baid it waa a shame, uud
then Louie came in.
"It is as I hoped, Nellie; he is
sleeping just as placidly and gently,
Roso tells, as a child. I did not go
in, but alie came out, and whiBpered
to me a long time in the passage. I
have promised her that yuu shall uot
go near tho room till wo hear her open,
tho door, for Dr. Blackstune says this
sleep will do wonders; nt all oventa,
poor fellow, it is temporary oblivion
of pain."
"And Rose, how docs she look?"
"Tired, but so thankful."
"But is aho happy, Loo? does sho
really lovo him so dearly?"
"Of the love, I think we can have
little doubt who saw her this morning;
as to happiness, I shuuld fancy her
feelings too excited and vague for
that yet. Besides, there ia so much
that is unsatisfactory still; the blow
has heen struck, certainly, but the
shadow still lingers that has darkened
their lifo; Heaven grant it may speedily be removed, Of course," continued Louio, "it must be a great
consolation to hor, even in her trouble,
to have him nll to herself to nurse and
tend; it will be the first timo bIio has
ever performed a wifely duty to him,
aud they have been married fifteen
years,—what do you think of that,
Nell?"
"It is incredible. Fifteen years!
oh, my poor Ruse, I never dreamed
of trouble such as this.1'
"Nor I; I always thought she liked
hiin, and that it was a case of hopeless
love; but this time, somehow or
other I got a glimmering uf the truth,
and at my earnest request Philip told
nio nil."
I caught her by the arm.
"Was that what he was telling you
last night iu the library, when he was
kneeling down buBide you?"
"Yes, he told me that, and a great
many things besides. He lay baro
before mo thu history and Borrow*- of
his life; the weakness that wus his
atumbliug-bliick nud error frum the
beginning; but I am tired and cannot
repeat i' all, Nellie; I have Philip's
versidi ■,, yuu shall leant it fvuin Rote's
lips yourself."
"Oh, Louie," I cried, vainly trying
to restrain my tears, "if you had
spoken to me last evening, what misery ynu might have spared me, for I
thought—oh, Louie dear, how could
you try me so?—that you and Philip
Hnzeldean were engaged."
"Engaged! I engaged, and to a man
like Philip Hazeldean!" she exclaimed,
iu genuiue amazement; "my poor
silly little Nellie, whatever put that
into your head?''
"Everything — everything; your
kind lookB and words, your pity, your
constant companionship; besides J' I
continued, struok with a sudden
thought, "why were your Bitting with
your hand in his?"
Louie laughed and blushed.
"I did not know that curious eyes
were watching ua, or I would have
been more mindful of propriety; but
if I did hold Philip's hand, it was because I felt as if he were my brother,
and because I forgot all, save the
earnestness of the cause I was pleading. I wus praying liim, Nellie, with
all my poor powers of persuasion, to
throw aside tho chain of fear and deceit that he had made fur himself, and
dare to act like a man, and claim Rose
before the world us his lawful wife;
and I spuke au strongly, I urged her
pitiable case, her patience, her trust,
and unassuming goodness, that I conquered his cowardice; I got hia sacred
promise—and but for this horrible
accident, all might yet have been
well."
"But Louie, nll this seems so incredible of belief. Do yuu mean-to
tell me seriously that Philip Hazeldean does not like you, even if you
are indifferent to him?"
"I am not indifferent to hirn, Nellie; I never met a man who interested
me, or who inspired me- with more
genuine liking and pity. Aa I suid before, if he had been my brother, 1
could not have been moru anxious
about him; but that you should have
imagined that I could have married a
man who not only drinks, but bets
and games, that I could have devoted
iny life to such as he is!"
"It was foolish enough, I own, but
appearances wero against you, But
forgive me, Louie, are you quito sure
that Philip does not care for you?"
"He had an idle fancy once, I think;
he is sn weak, you know, but I soon
laughed him out of it, and we became
excellent friends. I wns aware Mrs.
Hazulduan misconstrued our actions,
but for that I wus not answerable. I
had n lixed purpose before mo, and
that waa never to leave Philip and
Hazlitt till wrong should be madu
right. And bo," finished Louie solemnly, "man proposes nud Qod disposes;
and the knot that was too hard for my
untying was dissevered, and in an instant, by the will uf Heaven."
Several hours paused bofore I received permission tu enter the sick
room.
The drowsy afternoon had waned
into evoning, and twilight had wavered
from dusk tn dark, and still Louio lay
snd dozed the remembrance uf last
night's vigil away, whilst X sat at hor
feet on the rug and reviewed many a
gleaming pioture and fancied scene in
the caverns of red hot coal boforo me,
or traced the fantastic shadows that
played on the low oaken rafters nnd
|>nuelings of the quaint old roum, linking them in my hand with the tragic
events uf the day.

A Balky Mule.
One day laat spring, while coining
up Fulton Struet in this city, my attention was attracted to a crowd a
little way up the street. Upon teaching it, I elbowed my way through,
and found it was a caso of balky nurle.
The mules were smull, tliu load of
brick large, and in the steepest pint
of the hill one mule concluded tn retire from business.
The driver was a big brute, mid
duurished a savugu lilsck-snake whip.
One fellow in the crowd cried out,
"Cut him under tlm belly."
Another cried, "Hit hia una.
That'll fetch him sure."
The driver wna meantime busy with
his block-snake.   I cried,
"Don't for mercy's sake, dun'tl
That woti't do any good."
"Who aro yen! Mind your own
business, and I'll 'tend tn my mule;''
and the crowd hooted, "Out with him!
-ait with himl   Give liim the whip."
Juat then a big negro stopped fur-
ward, and aaid,
"Boss, if you'll stop licfain' 'im,
I've got aome modaun t'ill cure 'im."
"Vou ahet up, ><r I'll give it to you,':
watt the driver's reply
With a bt'iiid gritt the negro
repeated,
"Boss, if you'll stop liukin' 'im, I've
got some medium 't'ill cure 'im."
As the teams were accumulating
above and below, and ua the crowd
waB rapidly augmenting, and two or
. three policemen were trying to clear
the street, and as the driver saw that
Itii whip did no good, he cried out,
"Here, your nigger, what ia your
medicine?"
"I wsnt to taU to the littlo fool, 1
want to whisper to 'tm,"
With a nine jointed oath the driver
consigned the black man to the infernal regirna; but the negro persisted,
"Luok a heah, bus*. I wna born
among the mules, und brought up
itmotig the inulis, and I know all
about mules.".
"Well, try yer medicine, quick."
The negro put his cheek against tho
mule's nose, aim began with hia hand
to put hia nock, nil* his enn, nnd repeat in m low, soft voice,
"Poor fallow! pour felluw! punr
fellow 1"
After m few moments tho negro sitid,
"Now, bow, if you'll tech up t'othur
otie, this ono'll go, I reckon,"
Tlio driver touched tlie other mule,
whioh had been willing to go all the
time—not anxious, hut rather willing;
and when that one started, and the
negro said to his mule in*a plcnsant,
coaxing voice, "Como, old feller, don't
be a-foolin','' off he went, leaping and
tearing up the lull us hard as he could
gu.
I looked round upon the crowd, and
saw scarcely a face that did not show
disappointment. They evidently felt
that they had been eh out ud out of it
feast They were engei to nave the
poor creature hunton and tortured into
submission.
This is the spirit iu whioh drunk-
Hrds were treated until the Wushing-
tonian drays. Thuy were solemnly
issuri'd that the drunkard's gr ut' wns
lhe only place nn earth for them, and
that tht gates of lio.iven wure shut
itgninst thein.
A few drunkard*- in Baltimore, in
their despair, lookuil up toUod. In
His love Hu pitted uml helped thom.
He taught them that lnve wiw alt-sulK-
■ eient. The good work begun. Brotherly love triumphed everywhere No
more scowls, no more curies for the
drunkard; but everywhure mutt went
down to him in his darkness and weakness, put the arms of their fraternal
love abuut him, and led hiin up into
the light.
Tn a bitter spirit we cursed the rum
seller until tho womuii of Ohio, tilled
with the Ohrii-t-spirii, went about
pleading and praying with rum-aellers.
That wiittdorftil mm'uiuonf, known ns
the "Wmnan's Crusade," will never
be fully eomprohended. The results
in the way of closing rum-shops wure
iuitonislitng. And what, ia most important, under the "Crusade" the dealers
in great part, stopped willingly, and
then heartily co-operated with thu
women in their good work. One such
abandonment of tho business is worih
more to thu cause of temperance than
a hundred closures by thu coil
liable, -Dh Lewis Magazine.
Mr. A. Fisher, of the Toronto (Robt,
says: "I take great pleasure in recommending Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable
Discovery and Uyspuptie Cure to the
publio. t have suffered with Dyspepsia
tor some time, and have tried several
remedies without receiving any benefit.
Being recommended to du so I used une
bottle, and must say that I find the result perfectly satisfactory, not having
been troubled with Utl distressing
disease since, and would recommentt
others similarly afflicted to purchase a
Iwttle at once and try tt, as 1 am satis-
tied they will receive benefit from its
The Hudson Bay Runway.
As so much prominence is now being
given here to the Hudson Bay Ball-
way, o short account of the effort* already put forth to open this short route'
to Europe may be of some interest to
your loaders. As far back as 1875, Mr.
Hugh Sutherland, and a few others,
originated tho project by sending an
exploration party to Port Nelson at an
expense of several thousand dollars,
which was raised by private subscription among themselves. In 3878 they
applied for a charter, which was grant-
cd in 1880; hut when the first call was
made on tho stock to pay the preliminary expenses, all the members of the
old company dropped out except two,
so little fnith hud they in the feasibility of the sohemo, Some of them,-however, have since come back, and now
tako un active interest in it. A rival
company was started in Montreal nt
the same time to run u road froin some
point on the C.P.B. wost of the Province of Manitoba to Fort Churchill, on
the Hudson Bay, but both companies
were amalgamated by Act of Parliament last session, under which the lino
retains the old name of "Tho Winnipeg
nnd Port Nelson Railway," and the
old route has been adopted, it boing
shorter by IHO miles. The engineering
difficulties aro very trifling. There is
not a mile of rock cutting on it altogether; tho grading is easy, ns thu line
follows the valley of the Nelson the
most of the way, aud only two large
bridges are required, tho one over the
Saskatchewan und the other across the
Nelson River. Over 840,000 has been
spoilt on surveys, and it land grant of
nine million acres has been given tu
thu new company. The reason that
the work of construction has not been
commenced vet is the difficulty of floating bonds in the present state of the
money mujket. Wliun it is necessary
for the Dominion Government to
guarantee interest on thu stock of tho
C. P. R. to make it saleable, there is
very little show for obtaining copitnl
to build tt rival railway just now. The
distance from Winnipeg to Port Nelson
by this route is 6?3 miles, but another
company is being organized here this
fall to run a road on the east side of
Lako Winnipeg to Port Nelson, which
would bu about 100 milos shorter still.
To show the advantage of this route—
the distance from Winnipeg to Liverpool, na Montreal is, 4,140 miles, and
eia New Vork 4.052 miles, but by the
way of Hudson Bay only 3,53!) miles,
ami the sea voyage is snorter iu tho
latter cuso than in either of the other
two Mutes, If, for instance, two emigrant ships leave Liverpool on tlie
same day—the one by tjhe Hudson Bay
and the other by Montreal —those coming by the former route would arrive
iu the Htiskatehewan Valley by the
time those coming the other way would
reach ns fur us London, Ontario, pro-
vided that both parties travelled nt lhe
same rate. Thu rond would havu a
good local trade, its there are immense
timber limits nlnuu the Nelson River.
That it will be built within three years
is u foregoiio conclusion here, and the
furmem are anxiously awaiting the
-time when they cun ship their grain by
