The Conservative papers of Prinoe
Edward Island do not hesitate to
pronounce the government's effort
at protecting the fisheries an utter
failure. One points out that although the bays of the island, have
been all summer swarming with
American fishermen, not a single
seizure has been made for illegal
fishing. The Oharlottetown Examiner states that American fishing
vessels have been seining within a
mile of the Miminigash shore for
days without being disturbed by
any of Mr. Foster's cruisers, and
thinks it. about time that the minister of marine woke up. The
Summerside Journal, another Conservative paper, says that, "several
denial*' tu the contrary notwithstanding, we have no hesitation in
risking the statement thit last week,
almost every day, Americans fished
within two miles of our western
coasts,"—Ottawa Fret Press.
The Canadian Pacific is preparing to do business in earnest. It
has opened an oflico in this city and
is making ready to lay on a line of
steamers from this port to Vancouver. When the line is running
it will probably try to compete with
the Central and Northern Pacific
lines for freight, and will, as a matter of course, have to be taken into
the pool after a time, The older
roads will probably let it fight them
for a season or so, or until it shows
what it can do. It can hardly become a very formidable competitor.
Vancouver is twelve degrees north
of San Francisco, and it would take
a passenger about as long to get
there from here as to go to New
York or Montreal; so that as to passenger business it may be counted
out. Nor can it very successfully
compete for freight if it has to charter steamers and pay the cost of
trans-shipment at Vancouver. If it
cut materially under the present
rates on the Northern Pacific system, the more business it gets from
San Francisco the worse it will be
off. We notice, however, tliat the
agent of the Canadian Pacific takes
the same view which we do, and regards Vancouver as a mere way station, the true terminals of his line
being Yokohama and Hong Kong.
He says that his company has made
arrangements for a steamship line to
Asia. We liad not heard of any
suoh arrangements, though we knew
the Canadian Pacifio people and Sir
John Macdonald were trying to
make them. But the agent is probably better Informed than we are.
It is obvious that sooner or later the
present temper of the Canadian
government, will lead it to establish
a line to China, even if it has to
guarantee the ships against loss, as
the British govemment did when
the Peninsula and Oriental lino was
first extended; and it is in this view
that the new enterprise concerns us.
If the Canadian Pacific puts ou a
line of steamers to Yokohama and
Hong Kong, with a government
guaranty against loss, it may become
a formidable competitor for our
trade with Japan and China. The
new line could probably afford to
carry tea at a price that would be
ruinous to the Pacific Mail or the
Occidental and Oriental lines. New
York will get her tea by the cheapest routo. If the Vancouver route
is a fraction of a cent cheaper per
pound than San Francisco, the route
of the former will take the trade;
and the effect of the establishment*
of a Canadian line to Hong Kong
might have a serious effect upon the
working of our Ohinese exclusion
act, In British Oolumbia Chinamen are taxed $50 a head on arrival, and the number which a vessel
may carry is limited by law. Otherwise the immigration of Ohinamen
is not restricted. It has been understood for some time that whon
arrangements were completed for
putting on a line from Vancouver
both these limitations would be removed by an act of the Dominion
legislature, and the feelings of British Oolumbia would be soothed by
the construction of great military
works, which would give employment to her people. If Chinese immigration to Vancouver were as free
as white immigration is to New
York, our exclusion act would lie-
come a dead letter. Vancouver is
only a morning's sail from the Une,
and the Chinamen would pour into
Washington and percolate down the
coast by thousands. These are the
considerations, whicli lend importance to the new enterprise of tho
Canadian Paoifio.—5. if, Chronicle,

Vagaries or commerce.
A large part of tlie cargo brought
up by tho steamship Mexico yesterday was composed of canned salmon.
Tliese goods came, we presume, from
the Oolumbia Hi ver, and they have
been shipped over the Canadian
Pacific Kailway to Kew York and
other eastern cities. At tho same
time considerable quantities of salmon canned on Fraser River are
being shipped to Montreal and other
eastern points over the Northern
Pacilic Railway! In both cases,
we suppose, a special rate has beon
obtained, for it seems thnt the farther goods have to go the cheaper
the transcontinental railways will
carry them. Yesterday wc were
shown in one of our city groceries
butter imported from Montreal,
wliich had been made and put up in
what are known as the eastern
townships, lying east of Montreal.
In the same shop were to be found
cheese, oatmeal, and other articles
manufactured in Ontario. Ono cannot tell yet whero the changes
wrought by the operation of the
0. P. R. will stop, but of one thing
there is no doubt, tliat the ways of
commerce will lie completely revolutionized.

It Works Both Ways.
' Our readers are already familiar
with the fact that a number of Canadian and American vessels wero
lately seized in Behring Sea by the
XJ. S. revenue service for killing
seals in U. S. waters, contrary to
law. The seized crews claim tliat
they were not anywhere near U. S;
territory, uud that they could not he
prevented from sealing iu the open
sea. But the U. S. authorities claim
thut their jurisdiction extends ovei
a large portion of the waters of
Behring Sea. This claim rests
upon the treaty of 1867 in whicli
Russia conveyed to the United
States all its Alaskan territory.
Russia claimed sovereignty over the
most of Behring Sea, and tliat sovereignty she handed over with the
territory adjacent. But the question that now comes up is whether
Russia had a right either to hold or
to cede such an area of open water.
A reference to this phase of the
question was made in a despatch
from New York which appeared in
the Columbian yestorday, wherein
it is doubted whether the claim of
jurisdiction can bo allowed/ In the
Ban Francisco Chronicle the dame
point was raised, and a letter in the
Bulletin of a recent date takes decided ground against the United
States view. It is pointed out in
this letter that the instrument by
which Alaska was conveyed to the
United States described the boundary as beginning at a point near
the centre of Behring Straits, thence
running north close on the meridian
of 1G9 west to the frozen ocean,
thence from this same point about
south-west to the meridian of 193
. west, near the westerly limit of the
Aleutian Islands. All the waters
east of this line were conveyed by
the treaty of 1867 to the United
States, and these waters comprise
much of the sea of ICamschatka.
After taking possession of this new
territory, the U. S. congress passed
an act (July 1868) extending over
its whole area the national laws re-'
lating to customs, commerce, navi
gation, etc., and this act provided
for the seizure and confiscation of
all vessels engaged in taking and
killing seals within the region ceded,
except under special license issued
by the secretary of thc treasury.
But, the Jivlletin correspondent
shows that the original claim of
sovereignty over tliese waters put
forward by Russia was never allowed
by any of tlie powers. It was
stoutly disputed by Great Britain,
and even by the United States!
Russia could not convey to the
United States any territory or jurisdiction which she herself did not
possess, and if the United States
refused to admit Russian jurisdiction over Behring Sea previous to
acquiring Alaska, she cannot successfully claim it now. The prohibitions apply ns well to Americans
as to foreigners, and it is very likely
that the late seizures will cause a
revision of the whole matter and
a materia] modification of America's
claims to jurisdiction over the sea.
It is not likely that either Britain
or any other maritime power will
consent to he excluded from these
waters on any such claim as that
set up by the United States.

A Narrow Escai-e.-—A young man
named Benjamin Eickhoff met with an
accident on Front street last evening
which came very near having a fatal
r> suit. He was driving a loaded team
at the time, and having mounted the
load gave the horses a vigorous cut
with the whip. The animals sprang
forward, and the driver, not being in
a very well balanced state of body or
mind, was jerked from his seat and
fell iu front of one of the wheels,
catohing the brake,-however, tn hiB
fall. The brake prevented tho wheel
from revolving, and, consequently, it
did not pass over his body, which was
pushed along the ground till tho team
ran iuto n pile of gravel and wore
brought to n standstill. Before tho
mnn could bo pulled from his dangerous position the wheel had to be
raised bodily from the ground; but,
strango to say, though severely injured, ho wai ablo to inovo round to-
dny with tlio assistance of a stick.
It is to bo hoped tho valuablo lesson
involved in this narrow escape may
not bo thrown away.
ir, Parpotus lloileau, Ottawa, Bays;

ich I had boen suffering for over two
ithi, hy the use of Thomu' Eclectrie
, I used it both Internally and ex-
itlly, taking it in small doses before

A Father's Mihfortunb.—The Loudon i?c/io of tho 30th Jnly says: "At
the Burnley bankruptcy court yesterday, Benjamin Haigh, of 02, Westgate,
Burnloy, described as a weaver, came
up for examination. Ho stated that
ho formerly carried on the business of
a woollon dealer iu High Btreet, Manchester, but retired on a competency
ubout twenty years ago, Soven or
eight yoars sinco his two sons established a fishery business in British
Coiumbin, and lie had lent them £7,-
000, receiving no security boyond their
assurance Without his consent they
used his namo in connection with the
firm, which was styled "B. Haigh and
Sons," and witness not. knowing the
consequences, did not object. When
ho lent the money ho was to receive
interest at tho rate of 5 per cont., but
lie had not received a penny out of tlio
concern either as principal or interest.
The business failed a year or two ngo,
nnd tlie debtor was then sued by Mr.
Ward, of British Oolumbia, for £5,000
on account of the concern. *■ He was
not in a position to defend tho action*
and allowed judgment to go bydefault.
He had no private debts, and his insolvency was entirely duo to the sum
ho advanced to his two sous. The
loan to his sons comprised nearly the
whole of the money he had accumulated in business, and he was now boing
maintained by ono of his sons at Burnloy. All the assets in America had
boon seized. The public examination
wns then closed. Liabilities stated nt
£4,050 10s. 5d.; assets, £15 12s.
Fast Ocean Service.--"No, we
have no intention of tendering for the
Canadian mail sorvice between England and Halifax," said the agont of
ono of tho ocean steamships to a Star
reporter, "and simply because the conditions uro so exacting and so onerous
as to make it impossible for any of the
existing lines to compete. As a mat-
tor of fact, the trado understand perfectly that the conditions have boen
made to givo the conti-acb to the Canadian Pacific. For example, the ton-
dors call for steamers callable of making fifteen miles an hour, and they
must be of a certain tonnage whieh
nono of tlio existing companies can
supply. 1 understand that the O, P.
R. have put in a tonder or purpose
doing bo, which will meet the conditions asked for. They oxuect four or
five subsidies, nno from tho Imperial
government for tho Atlantic sorvico,
ono fur thu Transcontinental, undone
for the Pacific. In addition to this, I
boliove thoy have been promised! ool-
onial assistance as woll. Of course,
with such favorablo conditions, thero
is no doubt they will be ablo to perform tho flervice. Thero aro plenty of
high class steamers in tho market, the
Arizona, the City of Rome, and in
faot all tho best steamers afloat aro
in Uio market, provided a curtain price
is offered; none of the largo transatlantic steamers nre making money.
Mr. Andrew Allen has gone to England in connection with this matter,
but I feel confident that tho partnort
ou the otlior side will nevor hear of
tendering when such conditions nro
culled for. Why even tho Parisian
is not doing all that was expected of
her."—Montreal Star.
The Girl of To-Bay.
A lady residing at Hope sends the
following clipping, with the remark
that the publication of it might
smoothe the ruffled plumage of some
of those who have been lately writing
to the Columbian on this subject:
" The girl of to-day is a buBy, useful
worker. She is generally proficient
in needlework. She can not only
alter her own dresses, but out and
make those and her underclothing as
well. She has a knack of trimming
her hats and furnishing her wardrobe,
and does her full share ut helping the
dressmaker who comes tu assume
charge of the spring and fall sewing.
She understands the various branches
of mending, and takes that division of
labor off her mother's hands, as well aa
the care of parlors and dining rooms,
the arrangement of flowers, the supervision of manners and nppnrel of the
younger children, and sometimes their
studies too. Let full justice be done
tothe *girl of the period,'or rather
let there be a clear comprehension of
what Bhould be really represented by
that much abused phrase. It is not
fair to take the weakest specimens of
the sex as types of a class comprising
earnest workers, with strung conceptions of life, its responsibilities, and
burdens, and a steady purpose to bear
them according to the best of their
ability."

Special to the t'oluiiililan-
London, Sept, 1st.—The morning papers havo long special dispatches aud articles on the result of the earthquake iu
Charleston. A severe shock of earthquake was felt at Antiijuera, near Main-
go, yesterday. The inhabitants fled
panic-stricken from the town. There
was no loss of life.
Bi-'bmn, Sept. I.—Today being the
anniversary of the battle of Sedan, the
Emperor William, and Empress Augusta
reviewed 25,000 troops at Pottsdam,
Belfast, Sept. 1.—Rioting was renewed in Shank Hill district late lost night.
The mob collected and stoned the police
who were obliged to charge. 15 persons
were arrested. A number of shots were
fired; one constable was wounded; quiet
was restored after midnight.
Charleston, Sept. 2.—The principal
streets are littered with bricks and rubbish. The city hall escaped damage.
The massive portico of St. Michael's
church was wrenched from the body of
the church and cracks in thn main building extend to the foundation. All the
porticos of Bishop Korthrop's residence
are swept away. The academy of music
appears to be uninjured. Charleston hotel loses its ceilings and part of the coping, The German artillery hall is somewhat injured. The water works building end reservoir are uninjured. Several
buildings on Haynes street are gutted.
Tho injury to St. Phillips church previ*
outsly mcntioua-l <-- almost indiscrioable.
Several arches of the spire, atcuvt*, ami
clock tower nre torn down and thrown
out, On Sullivan's Island the shock was
severe, but comparatively little injury
was done, and no lives were lost. Many
of the summer visitors came to the city
this a.m. Ou James' Island the earth
cracked iu many places and from the
fissures Issued large bodies of cold water
mixed with sand and blue mud. Clocks
everywhere stopped at alnut 0:40 p.m.
At Mount Pleasant there was a general
shaking up, but not any loss of lifo.
There aro many fissures and eavaties
from which fresh water and mud have
come. Pino mud or sand has also opine
to the surface in Charleston. It is con
tended here that there was a twist or
turn in the motion of the earthquake,
aud not simply an undulating motion.
Articles of furniture aud lamps have beon
found which turned partially around in
addition to tlio visible effects of a simple
wavo motion.
Nkw York, Sept. 2.—A story is printed here that Victoria Schilling has deserted her coachman husband and ic is
Sresumed she lias returned to her father
lorrisini.
New York, Sept. 2.—The steamer
Alaska, whioh grounded in Oedney's
channel, was floated this morning.
PuiLLiroroLiH, Sept. 2,—The eity Ib
gaily decorated in honor of the return of
Prince Alexunder to Bulgaria, and crowded with visitors come to join the citizens
in celebrating the event. An entliiiBks
tic popular demonstration wus held yes
terday in front of the British consulate
in honor of Alexander, and a counter
demonstration in favor of the revolution*
ists was at the same time held in front of
thc Russian consnlate.
New York, Sept, 2;—Jamieson, Smith
k Getting have just received the following cable from London: International
grain market of Vienna issues an estimate
of the crops at 7"> per cent, on the continent generally. Hungary is estimated
at 87 per cent., Roumania 100, Egypt
90, Poland 10, northern Russia 85, central Russia 55.
CHARLESTON, Sept. 2.—Tlie last earthquake shock was experienced here ut
11:50 last night, since which time thoro
been no vibrations. People are just beginning to pick up courage to come out.
Efforts arc being made to clear paths
through the streets for the passage of
vehicles and pedestrians, and the city
once more begins to show soma signs of
life. For two long days and nights of
horror women and children liavo been
camping out iu parks and squares. It is
impossible to give any correct estimate
cf the loss of life and property. For two
day-) und nights people did nothing luit
huddle on tlie squures, small detached
relief parties going on to dig out the dead
from the debris or succor tiie wounded.
The first systematic effort to get at the
facts is now in progress by making a list
of the dead recognized and roported this
morning. At this time {11 a. in.) it foots
up 10, and the search is only commenced.
Tlie list of the wounded will go into
hundreds. About seven-eighths ot tho
houses aud public buildings iu the city
are either damaged or wrecked. Even
historic St. Michael's and St, Phillip's
are so badly wrecked that it is feared
they will have to be taken down. Waves
from 5:55 o'clock Tuesday night have
been coming about every 5 or 0 hours.
There have Deen none now for 12 hours,
and strong hopes are entertained that it
is over. At Orangeburg the people he-
came so much alarmed that many moved
to Columbia. As details of the calamity
in this city are gathered its effects become more and more alarming. It is
feared now that much distress will prevail. By far the larger part of those
whose property has been wrecked or seriously damaged beloiigs to the poorer
classes. People are as„cheerful as possible under the terrible circumstances, and
are trying to restore order out of the
chaos. The aggregate loss is expected to
reach $3,000,000, Wharves, warehouses
and business facilities of the city generally are unaffected by tho catastrophe,
and Charleston is as ready as ever for tho
transaction of business. The official
total of deaths is 33. The wounded will
probably number 100. Business is still
suspended, the whole attention of the
poople being given to providing for refuge and making their residences safe.
Bricklayers have advanced their rates to
$11 a day. The city council will probably
meet to-inorrow to provide for relieving
the poor. Confidence is gradually returning, out much apprehension still exists.
Pauis, Sept. 2.—Tho publication of
the correspondence betwoen the czar
nnd Prince Alexander has created a
great sensation in political * circles
here. The czar's menacing reply to
the prince's submissive epistle is regarded by diplomatists as insuring
Alexander's abdication and Russia's
occupation of Bulgaria. It is feared
that war will ensue unless Bismarck
intercedes.
St. Petersburg, Sept. 2.—-Prince
Alexander has sent the following tele-
grain to the Czar through the Russian
consulate at Rustichuk: "Sire: Having
re-assumed the govermunt of Bulgaria, I
venture to offer to your Imperial majesty
iny most respectful thanks for thc action
of your consulate at Uustichuk, whose
official presence at my reception showed
the Bulgarians that Russia did not approve of the revolutionary act directed
against my person. I thank your Imperial
majesty for despatching Prince Dolgo-
rouki as envoy extraordinary to Bulgaria.
My first act on resuming power
is to assure your majesty of my
firm intention to make overy sacrifioe
to forward your majesty's magnanimous
intention to extricate Bulgaria from
the grave crisis through which she is
pussitig. I beg of your majesty that
you will authorize Prince Dologorouki
to plnco himself in direct communication with myself as speedily as possible. I shall be happy to givo your majesty decided proofs of my unalloyable
dovotion to your august person. Tho
monarchical principle compels nio to
restore tho legality of my crown iu
Bulgaria and uoumelia. Russia having given mo my crown, it is iu the
hands of Russia's sovereign, to whom
I am ready to render it." The Czar
replied to Alexander as follows: "I
cannot approve of your return to Bulgaria, foreseeing from it sinister con-
Bcqueucus for the country already so
sorely tried. The mission of Prince
Dologorouki has become inexpedient.
1 shall abstain so long us your highness remains in Bulgaria from any intervention, in view of tho sad condition to which tho country is reduced.
Your highness must decide your own
courso, I reserve to myself to judgo
what my father's venerated memory,
llio interests of Russia, and the peace
of the east, require of me,"
AFTER DINNER.
Persons who suffer from Indigestion
can arrest the progress of that painful
malady by the use of an after-dinner
pill, so composed that It will give tone
to the stomach, prevent heartburn, rouse
tho liver to healthful action, Invigorate
the kidneys, and thus, through the activity
of these organs, promote tho natural
movement of the stomach and bowels,
Ayer's Tills are so compounded that
their action, though mild, effectually produces tfio ahove results. They also, in
curing Constipation, remove the cause of
Biliousness, Liver Complaint, Kidney Dis-
ease, Rheumatism, und many other serious
ailments.
AYER'S PUIS
contain no mineral nor poisonous substance, und do not gripe unless tbo
bowels aro Irritated, and even then their
influenco Is heating. To continue their
effect In constipated or chronic cases, they
need only be taken in diminishing Instead
of Increasing doses. For seamen, and Inhabitants or travelers in sparsely settled
countries where physicians are not at
hand, they aro of inestimable value.
Thero is hardly a sickness they will not
alleviate, and lu most cases cure, if taken
promptly. To young girls just entering
upon womanhood, ana to women whoso
period of maternity Is drawing to a close,
Ayer's Fills, In moderate doses, merely
sufficient to ensure regular action of the
bowels, will be found of
Incalculable Value.

LAST NICHT'S DESPATCHES.
Special lo (lie I'oiu mil Inn.
Haveskls, S.C., Sept. I.—Railroads
are under water in several places between
here and Charleston, 95 miles north of
here. The earth lias caved in several
places.
Jacksonville, Florida, Sept. 1.—The
earthquake shock last night was quite
severe and ielt as far south as Varlows,
It commenced !):'27, sun time, and lasted
about 30 seconds.
Charleston, S.C., Sept. 1.—Tliere
was a terrible earthquake hero last night
at 9:50 p.m. Tlio principal business portion of the city was destroyed and lain-
dreds of persons rendered homeless. Men
wore rendered frantic, women beseeching
God for mercy and children crying. The
main station house, city.hiiU, liibernian
hall, and other well-known public building, including St, Michael's church, are
irreparably damaged. Many people are
seriously if not fntully injured. Eleven
women, armed with hatchets, fought
valiantly to rescue tho imprisoned unfortunates. A street Irom Broad to Hazel
is wrecked and lined with unfortunates.
To add to the horror of thc scene many
(ires broke out, These were effectually
fought by the fire department. The
night was disturbed with the groans of
thc dying and wounded. It ia impossible to estimate tlie extent of tlie losses ot
life and property at present. Up to 1
p.m. to-day there have been ten distinct
shocks.
Richmond, Sept. 1.—A dispatch from
Charleston, dated 1 -o.m., says; At 8:45
this morning, precissly, another wave
swept over the city, coming, as the other
did, from south-cast and going in a nortii
westerly direction. Ry the time morning arrived, people having been out in
public parks and open places all night,
some ventured into their houses to got
something to cat. The approach of the
earthquake was heralded by the usual
rumbling sound resembling distant thunder till it gradually approached when tho
oarth quivered and heaved. In .'t seconds
it had passed, the sound dying out in the
distance. This is the only wave folt
since 2:30 tliis morning. It was not destructive, all damage having been done
at 9:55 last night. Thc city hall is a
complete wreck. St. Michael's church
and St. Phillip's church, two of the most
historic churches in the city, are in ruins,
as are many other public buildings.
Fully two thirds of the residences in the
city "are uninhabitable, wholly or partially. It is impossible at this time to
give a correct estimate of the damages.
It is supposed tliat between 50 and 100
persons have been killed and several
hundred wounded. At the time of the
first shook fires broke out in five different
places in thc city and about 20 houses
were destroyed by fire.
Charleston, W.V., Sept, 1.—Not
more than one hundred houses in city arc
occupied; at this time people are camped
in open places. All stores are closed and
there is a scarcity of provisions no ono
daring to attend stores.
Augusta, Ga., Sept. 1.—Two distinct
shocks of earthquake were felt this
morning at 7:50 and 9:15 n.m.. A num*
of houses are reported on fire. From all
parts of the city and surrounding neigh-
bo; hood come reports of small damage by
shock, suoh as falling chimneys, parting
of walls, and smashing of crockery.
Savanah, Sept. 1. (noon)—A relief
train has been despatched to Charleston
from tliis city.
Auiii'.ns, Sept. 1.—Thc condition of
the military at Algeria is deplorable.
Tliere is apparently an utter absence of
disciolinc among the troops and duels
take place almost daily between officers
and between rival companies. Chase tu-'a
Zouans, native soldiers, attack foreigners
on the slightest provocation.
SbBiA, Sept. 1-.--Prince Alexander arrived at Elena which is between Tirnova
and Sofia. His journey to Elena was
marked by a scries of popular ovations
similar to tliose reported yesterday.
Augusta, Sept. 1.--I. H. Avcriliio, of
South Carolina R. R., telegraphs from
Suinmcrsville that many -persons are killed and hundreds are rendered homeless.
The whole business portion of the city is
totally wrecked.
Smyrna, la., Sept. 1.—Several well-
defined shocks of earthquake were folt
here between 10 and 11 last night. No
damage was done.
Charleston, Sept. I.—Tho city is
wrapped in gloom and business is entirely suspended. People, generally, remain
in the streets in tents or under other improvised shelter and will camp out again
to-night, fearing another shock. The
gas works are injured and the city will
probably lie without light to-night.
Columbia, S.C., Sept. 1.--Summers-*
ville, '22 miles from Charleston, is nearly
destroyed by the earthquake of lust
night. A passenger train from this place
to Charleston was thrown from the track
near Summcrsvillc last night and thc engineer and fireman killed. Passengers
on the wrecked train, including telegraph
company line men have uot readied
Charleston yet.
Charleston, Sopt. 1.—Hardly a houso
in tlie city escaped injury. Many arc so
badly damaged and cracked tliat a blow
would bring tlicm to thc ground.
Charleston, Sept. 1.—Two slight
shocks oi earttiqunin; nave ucen felt since
the first one, at 8:25 tliis morning and
one about 1:30 p.m., neither doing further damage.
New Vork, Sept. 1.—Hanlan defeated
Courtney iu tlie boat race at Rockaway
Reach this afternoon,
Manchester, Sept. 1.—The Guardian
in its commercial article says: Business
\t. moderate and inactive; producers are
pressed to sell; prices are steady, but
still have a tendency to occasionally favor
the buyers.
Nevt York, Supt. 1,-—A Montreal special says: A circular was received from
Ottawa yesterday morning by thc custom authorities of this port respecting
the coasting tiade hetweeu the U.S. and
Canada, which, if introduced, will stop
American vessel-) not properly registered
from carrying cargoes between Canadian
ports nnd this city, it is to the effect
that owing to numorous seizures mado by
special agents it is believed that the
great latitude on tho part of collectors
and other officers in connection with the
1 traffio carried on hy small boats between
Canada and foreign ports is a mistake,
and greater vigilance in enforcing laws is
insisted. Special attention is called to
the fact that it is unlawful to import
goods from any place out of Canada in
any vesBfll not duly registered and with
certificate of registry on hoard. Only British vessels, or those belonging to foreign
powers who aro in treaty with Groat Britain- tho circular states, can compete in
the coasting trade of Canada, and in
future vessels from the U.S., (there being
no treaty with that country), will not be
allowed to go from one Canadian port to
another for cargoes.
Halifax, N.S., Sept. 1.—The cruiser
Howlctt seized the American schooner
Highland Light for fishing within the 3*
mile limit off the East Point in Prince
Edward Island. Tins is the lirst actual
seizure made for fishing.
Sofia, Sept. 1.— Rankoff, a Russian
who was a leading spirit in thc recent
revolution, has been arrested and placed
under a strong guard, the members of
which havo been ordered to keep him
under constant surveillance, as it is
feared he may commit suicide. The revolutionary troops retreated to the heights
of Sofia, which they occupied. Loyalist
troops surrounded them, compelled them
to surrender, and then disarmed them,
placing the officers under arrest.
Tile Hague, Sept. 1.—The great bath
at Schevcngen, on the North Sea, in
South Holland, has boon destroyed by
fire. The casino is also destroyed. The
total loss will not fall short of SS00.000.
London, Sept. I. -The weather was
brilliant and most favorable for the race.
The tide was fast in the right direction;
wind very light; not one ripple on the
water. The crowd was the greatest that
ever gathered along tho Thames, Both
men appeared punctually, but tlie start
was delayed by a number of small craft
which encumbered tho course: When
the signul waa given, Teemer, rowing 30
strokes to the minute, was the quickost
at starting, but Reach, pulling 38, caught
up with him almost instantly, and in a
short time led him by half a length. At
VVnldeti's Beach had increased the lead
to two lengths. Teemer hero spurted
witli the utmost gaineness, but without
avail. Beach, without increasing the
rate of his stroke, kept the advantage,
and at Hammersmith bridge was four
lengths in advance. Teemer was then
rowing a less stern race, though still
working pluckily to lessen the distance
between liim and tho Australian. Prom
this point Beach almost paddled,winning
with consummate ease by 10 lengths.
Good authorities declare Beach to be the
greatest sculler that has been Been in England. He looked to-day as though he
could row ten miles at racing speed.
Betting on Beach at the start wns 2 to I,
but this increased when the rowers
reached Hammersmith bridgo to 20 to I.
Timo of raco, 22 min. 50 seo.
London, Sept. 1,—Iu the commons tonight Sexton moved liis amendment to
the nddress in reply to the queen's
speech, as follows: "We humbly represent to your majesty that circumstances
accountable for the recent riots inBclfast
dictate thc necessity for special measures
to maintain order there, the moat urgent of tliese measures being the re-es-
tablisliment of your majesty's authority
in tho district where the police havo
been expelled by increasing the local
constabulary to such strength as will enable them to deal with auy probable
contingency." In offering the amend-
iiic iit,Sex ton said ho acted conscientiously, He claimed that the riots in Belfast
liad been conceived and prosecuted in
the interests of the present government.
(Cheers.) He demanded of the government to restore order in Belfast now, and
not to await results and the projected inquiry by commission. Six hundred poor
Catholics had been deprived of a livelihood through political intrigues. He was
treated similarly. He asked Lord Randolph Churchill what the government
proposed to do to induce the Protestant
employers of Belfast to fulfil their duty
and re-employ tbe Catholics they had
discharged. It was impossible to connect
these riots with the question of home
rule.J With or without home rule, riots
would ensue unless the government
brought those who had incited disorder
to book- (cheers)—by the use in Ireland
of public force as promptly and decisively as tljey were used in Hyde Park, Chicago and elsewhere. Lord Randolph
Churchill's Belfast speech had tended to
excite a spirit of disloyalty among the
people, and he believed riots were got up
in order to influence the division on the
home rule bill in thc house of commons
and to affect the result of the general
elections. (Cheers.) He concluded by
asking Churchill what he intended to do
to remedy the frightful consequences of
his own acts. (Cheers.)
Sir Michael Hipks-Beach denied absolutely that Churchill's actions had led in
any way to the Belfast troubles, and declared that the difficulty of thc position
would be materially increased bySextou's
statements. He earnestly implored the
Parnellites to refrain from saying anything likely to provoke tlie unfortunate
feeling winch had originated the riots.
He warmly praised the admirable manner in which tho constabulary of Belfast
had acted. The chief secretary expressed
a hope that members of the liouso would
assist the government to the utmost in
the difficult task which confronted them,
and that they would await patiently the
results of the royal commission investigation, when the government would
know what course to adopt. McDonald
moved adjournment of the debate.
New York, Sept. I.—A despatch says
that at 5:19 p.m. today another earthquake shock was felt ut Charleston, Augusta and Columbia, S. C. At Augusta
vibrations were noticeable for two min*
A New Shell.—A tremendous scare
prevails iu British naval circles, arising from it startling discovery in tho
Slioeburyiioss official gun trials. Among
the shells experimented with mid used
against a heavy tiii-gct, representing
uedtions of armored ships nf war. was
one recently adopted by thi; French
government for tlio unuy nud navy.
Por the purpose of testing it, a tar-
yet of  effjUtotm-inch plate was used,
witb nine foot <>f bin-king uml n ton
inch plate boyond- The shells penetrated tho entire muss, and when
found were so little affected as to be
almost iit for use again. The most
powerful shells of regulation pattern,
trained against similar targets, havo
utterly failed to accomplish anything
liko tho same execution. The shell
revolutionizes naval warfare. English
naval experts declare there is not an
ironclad afloat capable of withstanding guns tiring such shells.
