, That over one million eleotors in
Great Britain alone should have declared in favor of Mr. Gladstone's
-cheine of a separate parliament
for Ireland must lie a revelation of
the rapid growth of the proposal in
public favor. Add to this another
million who were so .far educated
that they oould not vote against
home rule even in the present form
and therefore remained at home, the
outlook is certainly not encouraging
for the Unionists. England it is
true hats nM glared yea; but
Wales and Scotland have done so
by an overwhelming voice. So close
-has the contest been, so rapid was
the education of tho electorate; that
on all hands'it is now admitted that
if Mr. Gladstone hod delayed the
elections for a few weeks and pushed
the educational process, a different
verdict would have been recorded.
There is, however, every, reason for
hope iu the immediate future.—
Ottawa Free Press.
Tlie presehoe of Gen. O'Brien
and other distinguished military
gentlemen as an imperial commission, to examine the coasts of British Oolumbia and report on the best
system of defense, has given rise to
a newspaper warfare. The Victoria press take the stand that the
fortification of Victoria and Esquimalt is a sufficient protection for
the entire province, tho mainland
pupers, however, take the ground
that while the fortification of those
places would certainly "be local protection, it affords no security to
New Westminster or Burrard Inlet; and in this respect we are fully
in accord with our mainland contemporaries. The idea expressed by
the Victoria press is much like the
ostrich who thought itself' safe from
its pursuers by hiding its head in
'the sand. It forgot for tho moment
that the body wos open to attack.
It would be the same if Victoria
and Esquimalt only were fortified,
they would be protected, but the
rest of the province would be open
to attack. There can be no question that a system of defenco will
have to embrace the protection of
llurrard Inlet, New Westminster
and the coal centre of Nanaimo, and
we feel confident that the matter
can be safely left to military men of
such vast experience as Gen. O'Brien
and his associates. They will comprehend at a glance the necessity of
protecting the terminus of tho railway and the coal stores, and arrange
accordingly.—Nanainio Free Press.
The Mexican diplomatic difficulty
seems to us like a teapot tempest.
Mr. Cutting, while an American
citizen, lives and publishes a newspaper in the Mexican town of El
Paso del Norte, a Mexican town
across the Rio Grande from El Paso,
Texas. In his Mexican journal
Cutting attacked a rival named
Medina, who had issued a prospectus for the publication of another
newspaper. He denounced the new
enterprise as a scheme for swindling
advertisers- Medina promptly had
recourse to a Mexican court and
forced his assailant to sign a retraction. Mr. Gutting immediately
crossed the Rio Grande and published in an American newspaper
known as the El Paso Herald a card
reiterating his assertion thnt Medina
was a swindler, which he had "With
drawn the samo day in a Mexican
court. He, was subsequently arrested n second time on Mexican soil,
and Is charged with deliberate and
flagrant contempt of court, sinco he
reiterated hia charge) publicly whioh
he had withdrawn beforo n court of
competent jurisdiction. Cutting's
residence and occupation was on the
Mexican sido of the river. His
libel was first printed and retracted
there, and then reprinted in an
American paper circulated on both
sides of the river. The New York
Tribune recites these facts and
tjiinks that in the primary right of
' jurisdiction, the facts are on the
Mexican side, and quotes the fact
that "Mr. Bennett has just been
heavily lined in an English court
for a libel published in New York
on Mr. Field; and the ground of
notion is the circulation in London
of the New York journal containing
the a|)eged libei. The Mexican
courts would have jurisdiction in
like manlier ovw this llliel case/'--
Portland Oregoniosii.

India rubber is menaced with a rival.
The rubber dealers uf Eastern Nicaragua think they have discovered a' tree
whose gum will give at much satisfaction as rubber, and will, in fact, take
its place. They say. that tho milk uf
the tuno furnishes a must oxcellont
gutta pcrchn, equal tn tho best fount!
in the eastern tropics, while the number uf trees Is virtually inexhaustible,
and the gum can be iiriidnued with
profit at 12 cunts it pound.

Monday Ivenlnr. Aimust ». MWI.
. It is reported thnt there nro runners at Port Moody, noting for interested parties elsewhere, who
make u point of collaring all passengers by the C. P. R. and endeavoring to keep thein from coining to
this city. These people are told
that it is useless for them to come
here, as there is neither land, busi-
ness, nor anything else of an attractive kind, and they arc hurried on
board the Victoria steamer. A
gentleman reports that on Sunday
one of the passengers nsked if there
was no conveyance to New Westminster. He was told there were
three stages; but when the runners
discovered a disposition on the passenger's part to come to this city
they grabbed liis fyiggage nnd hustled it on board tho steamer! Such
conduct ought to be stopped, and to
this intent it is of the greatest importance that an immigration agent
should lie stationed at Port Moody
to look after the interests of those
who come by the train.
Standard Time.
A few days ngo we stated that
the C. P. N. Co had adopted standard time on all its steamboat
routes. It is by standard time the
railway runs, and all the post offices
in the country are adopting standard time. In view of these facts
it is scarcely necessary to sny that
standard time will have to bo adopted by every one who does not
propose to get left. If the present
variation continues to exist, it must
end in general confusion and embarrassment. There is a difference of.
nearly 12 minutes between the true
local time for this city nnd standard
time, the local time being the slower. Standard time is being adopted
almost everywhere throughout this
whole continent, and will undoubtedly soon .be- the only time recognized for common affairs. For the
purpose of making this time, Canada
has been divided into live zones each
900 miles in width. Commencing
at the east these zones are named as
follows: (1) Intercolonial Time, (2)
Eastern Time, (3) Central Time, (4)
Mountain Time, (5) Pacilic Time.
The time for the whole of each of
these divisions is uniform, and there
is a difference of exactly one hour
in time between any two adjoining
divisions. The Eastern Time, for
example, is one hour slower than
Intercolonial Time, and Pacilic Time
is an hour behind Mountain Time.
It follows that we are four hours
behind the people of Halifax in
point of time. The eastern boundary of our zone is about Donald,
on the C. P. R., near the eastern
limit of the province, so that nearly
the whole area of British Columbia
comes within one division and will
have uniform time. Tho new system has been proposed and adopted
simply as a matter of convenience,
and to remove the difficulties which
were so conspicuous, and sometimes
so embarrassing, under the old. It
was quite impossible for a iiiilwny
company whose road extended any
distance east or west to observe tho
various times that would be true
local time at each station. For
many years these railways have had
divisional time zones in which a
uniform time prevailed, but the
boundaries of these zones were arbitrary and established at different
places by different companies. The
present scheme definitely fixes the
limits of the zones and proposes
that not only railway companies but
nll companies and individuals shall
keep the same time. There is no
objection that we know of ugainst
a uniform adoption of the new system, and the sooner this is done the
sooner will the prevailing irregularities disappear. In this city
thero has always been a dreadful
disagreement on time. The schools
differ from the churches, the churches differ from the mills, and the
watchmakers generally differ from
nll others, nnd do not even agree
among themselves. Now that standard time has been ndopted by the
railway company, the steamboat
company, and the postoffice, we beg
to suggest that it lie at once adopted
by the schools and churches, and
the watchmakers, nnd then everybody will adopt it very quickly,
Very soon we shall have thc cars
running into the city, and nnother
standard time-piece erected; and before long we hope to see a line city
hall with a city clock that will serve
as a regulator for everybody's watch
and everybody's movements.

House Numbering,— Somebody has

to number tho doors at 50 cents each.
Our city is growing rapidly, and it is
probably uot too soon to adopt the
customs of larger places, but we are
sure tho end to bo desired is not'being
accomplished in this case. In some
instances the numbers are put on, but
in the majority the' offer of the num of
figures is declined, so that his work
counts for nothing. Besides, to all
appearances, thore was no effort towards seouriug uniformity, and odd
and ovon numbers are nailed up on

cases to Winnipeg and 1200 to Montreal. Mr. B. Young, manager of the
British American Pkg. Co.'s business

the tirst shipment of Ruined fish over
the 0. P. U., a fact upon whioh Mr.
Young and the compnny may bo congratulated, Mr. Young informs us
that there are between seven and eight
thousand cases (about 30 carloads) slill
at Skeena, which he will ship over the
C. P. R, if the arrangements and rates
on that road are satisfactory. There
are also about 15 carloads at tlie company's cannery on the Fraser, which
will be shipped a* soon ns tbey can be

Disputed Authority.
HOW  THE CONFLICT COLLAPSED.
Whnt is thought to be the last chapter in the recent dispute of authority
botween tho police magistrates of this
city and New Westminster was enacted
on Wednesday last, when tlie New
Westminster officials took anothor step
iu the matter. It will be remembered
that a warrant was issued in the last
week of July by Magistrate Pittendrigh for the arrest of Policeman Hay
on a charge of exceeding his duty.
Constable McBrooin came ovor from
New Westminster to execute the warrant, but, on being informed that ho
liad no jurisdiction hero, aud would be
himself arrested if he attempted to put
his authority into force, he eventually
left without taking Hay into custody.
The matter then rested, aud was reopened last Wednesday, when Police
Constable Jackson, of the Now Westminster force, was sworn in specially
for the purpose, of arresting Policeman
Hay. Jackson nrrived in Vancover on
Wednesday morning armed with a
warrant authorizing tip) arrest. After
Hay was in custody, hu asked to be
brought bofore the nearest justice of
the peace for the purpose of giving
bail. Jackson at tirst refused to bring
Hay before any justice excet Captain
Pittendrigh, producing a warrant,
which, on examination, was found to
havo -been altered from tho ordinary
form permitting a defendant to appear
boforo any magistrate in .tho district
where the alleged offence was commit- ;
ted. As the warrant rood (iu its ,
changed form) tho defendant would I
have beon compelled to have appeared
bofore Captain' Pittendrigh wherever
he might happen to bo, tho right of
going beforo any justice of tho peace
in the district being denied. Tlie defendant insisted, through his legal representative, on appearing before the
nearest justice of tliu peace, but Jackson still demurring, the question wan
referred to Mayor Maclean, who decided that the defendant was entitled
to Imil pending the hearing. Bail was
thereupon issued, and the hearing of
the case was tixed for Thursday morning at 11 o'clock, before the mayor or
any other justice of the peace then sitting. Wheu tho ease was called on
Polico Constable Jackon didUiut attend, nud thu court remained sitting
until 12 o'clock in order to givo Captain Pittendrigh au opportunity to appear in his official capacity as magistrate, should hu choose to do so.
Thero being no prosecutor and no evidence produced in support of the cise.
the defendant wiih discharged. Tlie
eivie authorities of Vancouver contend
that in taking the steps which
thoy have in this controversy, thoy ara
doing only what is customary under
the circumstances. Thoir argument is
that it is only in a case whore justice
is denied by the magistrate that a complainant has tho right to go to another
justice of tho peaco- Had thu hearing
of the case boen refused iu this eity
there might liave been some ground
for transferring it to another section of
the district, but thu Vancouver authorities insist that there is no justifiable
ur reasonable causo for the stops taken
aud the course pursued by thu Now
Westminstor magistrates.- Vnnemivsr

captured all the public funds, it is
reported that up the river in a fight
with the troops, the revolutionists
were defeated and two killed.
The organ of the revolutionists,
published in Brownsville, issued the
following to-day: "From various
sources we learn that Col. Saldana

Ottawa, July 31.—Ifc is reported
here that Lieutenant-Governor Richey, of Nova'Scotia, will be appointed
to the seat on the supreme court bench
of Nova Scotia, that Mr. McLean
' will be made lieutenant-governor, and
that Sir Cluu'los Tupper will succeed
Mr. McLean as minister of finance.
The latter is now in Nova Scotia, and
is said to be winding up his nHairs preparatory to taking office. Mr. McLean has been a terrible failure as
finance minister, and the Tories think
that only by bringing Sir Charles Tupper back can they hope to secure any
support in Nova Scotia at tho next
election. If Sir Charles re-enters politics, it will he with the assurance tliat
he is to succeed Sir John Macdonald
as leader of the Tory party within a

NewTohk, Aug. 2.-—The steamer
Yosemite has been aoid by Messrs.
Field & Youn g, ahipbrokers, of Now
York, to the Canadian government by
whom she will be used as a cruiser.
The Yosemite is an iron screw steamer
of 482 tons and was built by Messrs.
John Roach A Son at Chester, Pa.,
in 1880. Her dimensions are 180x24x
12, and she 'is propelled by a throe
cylinder compound engine capable of
driving her seventeen knots per hour,
She has hurricane deck and her internal fittings are of thc most elaborate
description.
New Yoiik, Aug. 2.—Tho Sun lias
the following from London: The governor of Newfoundland in his despatch
regarding the famine and bear atory
says: The Hudson Bay Company state
positively that the company's steamer
will not reach Fort Chimo until Aug.
10th, and wil! not leave that place on
her return trip beforo the end of September, making it impossible tliat
nows should have now been recoived
from the strait, Tho strait, the company's officers say, has nevor boen
frozen ovor, and the company's vessels
bound for Fort Churchill, York factory, and Moose factory are only now
due at the entrance of the strait.
There is no settlement wliatover at
Cape Mugford, which is 70 miles from
Hudson Strait, and there aro ho Indians within 300 miles of that place,
Nntives and residents of Manitoba who
are now staying iu London aru entirely confident that the story originated
with persons interested in preventing
the construction of a railway Ut Hudson Bay, which is projected with a
viow to shortening the routo from fcho
Northwest to Europe.
Halifax. N.S., Aug. 2.— Tlio Rev.
Moses Harvey, ono of tho best informed and numt trustworthy men in Newfoundland, telegraphs:*—"The reports
of starvation in Labrador and Northern
Newfoundland aro falso. No such reports have reached St, Johns, although
vessels are arriving from theso places
daily.   The fisheries are improving."
A Contemporary of Noses
The historian Bunsen, who is as
likely to be right as Clinton, Smith or
Hasher, fixes the date of the exodus
of the Israelites from Egypt at 1320
B. C. The nineteenth Egyptian dyn
asty began about 1340, and Rantesea
II. came to the throne some five and
twenty years afterward. These considerations are interesting in view of
the fact that rather more than a fortnight ago the mummy of thia monarch
wu unswathed, and found in auch a
wonderful state of preservation thnt no
difficulty whatever is found in perceiving whit manner of man the king was.
It ii hard to oonoeive a subject moro
calculated to impress the imagination
than reflection on the contrast between
the world as it existed when this
mummy was consigned to the tomb
and as it •xtsU now, When for the first
time after the lapse of thousands of
years tho body is restored to the light
nfdftj'.   It is ft tliema  which might
boats that came upon either Bide and
behind her. A hundred feet away the
men lay ou their oars, and Capt,
Mariano sighted over Ihb swivel gun.
The men bent ovor their oars, with
every muscle ready to pull or back
water at tho slightest hostile movement on the part of the enemy. It
was a moment that seemed an age of
awful suspense to the greon hand, but
suddenly the captain hnd .a fair mark
presented and pressed tho trigger.
The boat quivered under the shock
accompanying the report, and the eye
could plainly catch the flash of the
harpoon as it cleaved the air nnd buried itself out of BJghtsomewhere in tho
right shoulder. Attached to the missile was the atoutManilla line coiled in
the bow, and it bore thu appearance
of a flash of brown lightning as it zigzagged through the air after its powerful motor.
The  whale  hardly seemed to comprehend the trouble  that  had overtaken  her  at first, and it waa fully
half a minute before she  emitted an
angry snort and started for the bottom
at a rate that made the line smoke and
emit sparks as it ran over  tho bows.
Both thu captain and the boat stecrer
peered uneasily into the clear depths,
as the lino stopped running out, and a
minute   later   the   former    shouted:
" Back all !   Bnck hard !"   The five
pairs ot ashen blades bent and quiv-
ered with the strain put  upon   them,
but it waB none too much, as thu boat
was Bcarcely a dozen feet  away when
tho huge bulk of thu whale rose to tho
surface and spurted twin   columns of
the brine high in tho air.   Before tho
animated waterspout could  repeat tho '
doso the boat was out of range, both
of the lire extinguishing apparatus and
ihe   terrible  flukes   that   soon coin- ;
monced to thrash the water into foam,
Her,contortions were so violent thnt
thc   captain   could   not get iu a shot :
with his bomb gun, whieh   he   raised
and lowered hnlf a dozen times witli*
out pulling the trigger.   Finally the ;
flukes quit their thrashing, and like a
flash tho leviathan dashed away nt a |
terrific rate, burying the   boat's bow
between two walls of water fully eight* ;
een incites   high, but the   speed  wns .
such tlint scarcely a drop entered thu '
boat.   This gait   was   kopt   up for a
good ten minutes, and then the speed
commenced to slacken und thu wounded monster swam easily and quietly nn j
top of the water.
The living tug camo to a total stand
still at last, and, pulling around to a
broadside position, the captain wan j
given his opportunity. The second.!
explosion was followed by the whistl-
ing of the rubber-winged bomb, which
buried itself in the great mass of
blubber. Scarcely hnd the smoke
cleared away from the bow' beforo tho
muffled boom of the bomb exploding
in tho historical residence of Jonah
sounded the death knell uf tho poor
old whale. Tho victim!* huge bulk
grew animated again, but .inly for a
moment. The flukes thrashed violently for a few seconds, while the
waler-spouts became tinged a warm
rod.   Struggles  and   spouts   heoamh
