There is another stir in Congress
ubout llio debt to become due to the
Government from the Paoifio railroads. It was held years ago by
the Supremo Court of the United
States that the ronds were not
bound to pay the interest on the
subsidy bonds received by thein till
the maturity of the principal; and
the bonds still have about ten years
to run. When the debt reaches
maturity its total for all the roads,
the Union Pacifio, the Central Pacific, the Kansas Pacific and the
Sioux City & Pacific, will amount to
$107,332,615.36, principal and interest, The question arises, what
measures aro to be taken by tbe
Government to secure payment of
this prodij-ious sum! The Outhwaite
bill, of which much has been said,
proposed to make provision for payment through a long course of years,
and tho bill itself was submitted to
Secretary Manning for his judgment
upon it, The Secretary's answer
showed that the constant semi-annual payment of $1,854,304.52, and
its reinvestment, would discharge
the debt in seventy years, with interest nt the rate of 3 per cent.
But the Senate deemed this too
favorable to the companies, believing thnt ways could be devised
whereby the payment could be
secured within a much shorter
period; and the Judiciary Oommittee
of tha Senato has therefore reported
a bill requiring the companies to
pay into the sinking fund for extinguishment of their debt 40 per cent,
of their earnings instead of 25 per
cent, ns required hitherto under the
law known ns "the Thurman act."
It is not supposed that this or any
other meusuro that can be devised
will provide a fund large enough to
extinguish, or nearly extinguish, the
debt nt the time it becomes due; but
evidently it ia believed that during
tho ton years still remaining thero
may be accumulated a sum sufficiently largo to reduce the debt vory
materially nnd render its final discharge a ma'.ter entirely within possibility. If the Government had a
first lien onthe roads thero would
be no difficulty. Its embarrassment
arises from its position as a second
mortgage creditor.—Portland Orego-
niait.
Some interesting rectification" of
certain passages in the recently-
published memoirs of Count von
Beust, bearing on tho events which
preceded the Franco-German war,
have been made by one of Gen. Le-
brun's friends. It appears, according to this authority, that tho negotiations for an alliance between
France, Italy, and Austria were subordinated to the following conditions: France was to engage herself
to throw an army of 400,000 men
on the Saar, but to fight no important battle until Austria and Italy
should be ready to help her. While
waiting for six weeks Austria ard
Italy woro to observe neutrality
without slackening their preparations for war, so as to make Prussia
deem it necessary to detatch a part
of her forces to watch them. Another agreement was that after tho
Frenoh should have crossed the
llhitte the Emperor Napoleon III
was to proclaim himself protector of
the Gorman States hostile to Prussia. Gen. Lebrun communicated all
theso plans to the Emperor, who
was displeased with the six weeks'
delay proposed by Austria, ond remarked that he expected better
things from that power. Gen. lebrun, howover, observed that the
six weeks might be shortened by a
diplomatic arrangement, nnd, the
Emperor being apparently satisfied
on this score, the matter was dropped for a time. In July, 1870, the
Austrian Minister to Belgium was
instructed to sound the Emperor
Napoleon as to the war which appeared imminent between France
and Prussia. He saw the Emperor
in Paris, and tho upshot of tho interview was that the pour parlers as to
the proposed alliance wero renewed.
Shortly nftcrword Princo von Mot-
ternich was directed to assure tho
Emperor Napoleon that Austria
considered tho cause of Franco as
her own, nnd that she was ready to
contribute within certain limits to
tho success of the French arms.
Such are tho explanations givon by
Gen. Lebrun's friend with respeot to
negotiations whioh, had they beon
carried out, as was confidently expected by tho Emperor Napoleon,
might havo changed the whole
courso of the momentous events of
1870. lt is to be remarked that in
Count von lleust's memoirs thero is
no definite mention of the plans alluded to, and which were discussed
by Gen. Lebrun and the Austrian
Generals iu Vienna.—Com London

CARDINAL (.iUJIIO.NS AND THE LABORERS
Rome, Mar. 10.—In an interview
Cardinal Gibbons Baid his and Strani*
ero'a reports, although published
through a wonderful stroke of news*
paper enterprise, wero in the first in*
Btanco confidents1. Tho cardinal
said: "J nm and ever shall be the
enemy nf tho plutocracy of soulless
corporations and men. The Catholic
churoh wil' take tho side of the weak*
er against the stronger, in this in*
stance. There h no question of secret
societies. Powderly and many of the
other cbiofs are ffond Catholics. Above
all, I wish it known thnt there is no
essential divergence between myself
and the archbishop of Quebec on the
Bubject. The French Canadian society ib not that of the United States,
and perhaps the French ecclesiastic or
administrative mind may be more inclined to take alarm than we, and see
revolutions behind every hedge.
America is quite nble to take care of
itself und the interests of American
citizens. It will he time enough to
consider nll sorts of Bide issues when
raised,"
beeoubr's funeral.
New York, Mar. 10.—The private
service has commenced. Two-wreaths
of white roses and lilies of the valley
and smilox were received by Mrs.
Col. Beecher early in tho morning.
The coffin rested in the centre of the
room, iu the front parlor, and was
surrounded with banks of fragrant
(lowers whose aweet perfumes pervaded the air, and on all sides eould be
seen floral emblems from friends and
admirers of the dead divine. The
remains were dressed in a suit of black
broadcloth. The features were natural, nnd there wns a smile on the
face. The long grey hair wu brushed
baok over hia ears the same as ho wore
it when alive. Promtly at 10:30 the
Rev. Chas. H. Hall, of tho Cnurch of
Holy Trinity, entered the house, and
soon after entered the front parlor and
commenced to read the burial sorvice
from the ritual of theEpiscopal ohuroh.
While the services were in progress in
the house company G, of the 13th regiment was drawn up in front of the
house. Only members of the family
and a few friends were present during
tho services at the house. None of
the family were dressed in black.
Mrs, Beecher sat near the rcmaini
during the reading of the services, and
by her side wero her sons and daughters and members of their families.
Shebore'up wonderfully during the
ceremony. A few minutes before the
remains were carried out uf the house
to the hearse the sun burst out bright
and clear.
HONORINO UB LESSEPS.
Berlin, Mar. 10.—De Lesseps was
tho guest of tho Emperor William at
supper yesterday evening, and sat at
the table reserved for the emperor
and empress, both of whom conversed
freely with him during the repast and
bestowed upon him marked attentions.
Tho Crown Princo Frederick William
during the supper reminded De Lesseps that ho (the princo) assisted ih
the ceremony nf opening tbo Sues
canal in 1800. The Empress Augusta
again received Do Losscpi to-day.

A NEWSPAPER FABRICATION.
Chioaoo, Mar 10.-The Timea* Ottawa, Ont., speoial says: The minister of customs to-day stated with reference to an alleged interview that
had been published in tho U. S. and
English press,—in wliich Ue is represented as saying that the Dominion
government has under consideration a
retaliatory bill, the details of which
were known nnd which they propose
laying bofore parliament, heavily increasing and in many instances making prohibitory the duty on Amerioan
products coming into Canada—that no
such interview evor took place, and
that it ia a fraud and gross imposition
of tho nowspapir publishing it.
A TERRIBLE TRAOEDV.
Cincinnati, Ohio, Mar. 0.—A speoial from Louisa, Ky., says news has
been received from a lonely farming
community on Cat's Fork, in Lawrence
county, of a terrible tragedy. Samuel
Smith, aged sixteen, who had somo
troublo with bis neighbor, Stephen
Hammond, yesterday armed himself
with a revolver and went over to Hammond's, following hint into the house.
BBS
Hammond then rauhed (or hn rile,
but Smith fired end killed him. JUm-
mond's wife and children, i bey ud
girl, attacked the murder**, but ht
noon fatally wounded Hn. Hammond,
and aa the children attempted to ee-
cape he filled them with balb. Thinking he had killed the entire family ht
fled to the mountain, and hae not yet
been captured. Hn. Hammond will
die and the children may not recover.

Speculations.
Speculations respecting the prob
abilities of war ore now in order.
Those who believe war improbable
point to. the significant fact that all
the great statesmen and military
'meS bf Germany are past the ordinary period allotted for human life.
Bwmarok is over 70, and physically
; fcrqkoi; Von Moltke is past 80, and
the foaperoi' William is nearly 90.
It could hardly be expected that
any of these men will take a very
active part in a military campaign.
France is not so muoh troubled with
aged civil and military men at she
is' with debt, of which she has abundance; It is assumed that a war
between these two powers would
cost an enormous sum of money,
and it ia certain neither would gain
an, advantage at all commensurate
with the losa. But when men become angry they seldom stop to
think of these things, and if the
Frenchmen get really mad they will
apend their very last dollar in the
effort to thrash the Germans. If
wise counsels should prevail, the
situation would be hopeful enough,
hilt wise counsels rarely prevail in
such circumstances as these.
.   Oar Boasted liberty.
An incident is related by the
Kamloops Sentinel which, if true, is
"a disgrace to British Columbia. It
is said that a China-woman at Granite Creek died lately, leaving among
other things a young Ohina girl,
the frienda of the deceased speedily
aet about the administration of the
estate, of which the girl seems to
have been regarded as the principal
asset It was decided she should be
raffled off I She was valued at $500,
and tickets representing that sum
were issued and eagerly taken up;
but before the raffle could take place
the arrangements were disturbed by
the appearance of the dead woman's
husband, who took possession of the
wbolt ranch, including the girl. We
are inclined to doubt the accuracy of
the report, but if it is true the administrators of the law at Granite
Oreek are deserving of severe censure, It is shocking to think of a
young girl being told publicly in a
mining camp where British laws
and British liberty are supposed to
Srevail. The whole transaction was
legal Mid disgraceful, and the
means by which the sale was to be
accomplished (a raffle) made every
person connected with it liable to
punishment This is not a new
. phut of the Ohinese question, but
it ought: to have the effect of making
the guardians of public liberty and
morals less forgetful of the responsibilities of their office. If our laws
/•'.MMI MM Sufficiently explicit to
oatch sueh, cases, let them be made
soatooce.*" ;   '
Tbe Brest Telescope.
, Not long ago Prof. Proctor, the
well known astronomer, wrote to a
ii New York paper on the subject of
the large new telescope which is to
be erected shortly on the Lick Observatory in California. Mr. Proctor expressed the opinion that the
results of this instrument and observatory would probably disappoint
publie expectations. The telescope
has, we believe, the largest object
glass ever made, being 36 inches in
diameter; but Mr. Proctor declares
that past experience with large tele
scopes has not been by any means
l.ttitfaotory. This unsolicited opinion does not suit the ideas of the
Oelifornians, who take very great
and justifiable pride in tbe lick observatory and telescope. Principal
Htlden, of the University of California, has been interviewed on the
subject, and distinctly refuses to
subscribe to the opinion of Prof.
Proctor. He points out the many
wry great advantages possessed by
large telescopes over small onos.
Tie separating power of an object
glass, he says, varies directly as the
aperture, which is an exceedingly
valuable quality when one comes to
the examination  of stars.   Large
, glaaeta alto give a greatly increased
magnifying power. A one-inch telescope, fir example, will magnify
only BO times, whereas a 36-inch
glass haa a magnifying power of
,j8(H>." Again, if the amount ot light
collefttd by a one-inch telescope be
represented by 1, the amount collee-
tea by a 36 inoh telescope glass
would be represented by 1296,
Wjtfc a high magnifying power ob-
servers sometimes find difficulty in
j owec-ming the unsteadiness of the
' atmosphere, but Mr. Holden points
t»t that Mount Hamilton, where
thattletoopt is to be erected, is lest
subjtet to this atmospheric unsteadi-
'• idtl than any place he knows.
Altogether he feels very hopeful as

■* GRIP!
1887.
CANADA'S COMIC JOURNAL
GREAT IMPROVEMENTS FOR 1887.
THE AIM OF "GRIP" Is to set forth, In
ln an Impartial nnd independent manner, the pnsHlnit events of Canadian political una social life. Its Cartoons np'<ak
more definitely and more pleasingly than
whole columns of editorial. In this pun-
Kent, easily appreciable, and artistic style
of presenting a subject, the whole situation ls revealed at a elanco. The success
of Grip shows how well this fact ls appreciated—Its Cartoons on tbo passing political events of the country being even
more eagerly Bought after than the chaste
and humorous letter-press of the paper,—
though the latter Is equal to thnt or —
similar publication on the continent.
The publishers of Grip are making ex
tensive Improvements for 1886. The old
cover Is to be discarded, and the Journal
will hereafter comprise 12 pages, and be
printed on heavy toned nnd calendered
paper,—every number being so artistically
executed as to compare favorably with
the best papers on tho continent. The
advts. will bo compressed and more systematically arranged; while similar lm
provements will be made as to the letterpress. A new and handsome design will
adorn the title page; while tho Cartoons
will certainly not suflbr from extensive
Improvements in the nrtlstle department.
The price of Grip will hereafter be 92 a
year, which Is lower than thot of any
ftaper of Its kind In America,—most of
hem selling for «5. •"—■■- *-*■-•-*--■-- -'
Grip will be 10 cents.
Twice a year.at Midsummer and Christmas, a beautiful speoial number will be
Issued, the number of pages being Increased, and pleasing features introduced,
particulars of whioh will bo given fn preceding issues. These numbers will be
presented to subscribers without extra
charge.

Cteor d'Alene Nuggets.
The Treasure Box mine, at Murray,
Idaho, haa been making a remarkable
showing. In January there was
shipped to Helena the sum of ?4,70O
in gold, the produot of only 300 lbs of
ore, extracted in two weeks by two,
men, using simply a hand mortar. In
the lot were two nuggets, weighing
respectively 22| and 27) ounces. They
are about the size of a man'a hand.and
bristle with shafts and spears of gold,
which make thein doubly valuable aa
specimens. From the 10th of December 000 pounds of ore have yielded, in
the hand mortar, $10,000. There are
70 tons of ore on the dump, estimated
to contain from 1600 to Jl.OOO per ton,
whioh will be worked in an arraatra.
It is seldom that auch a lead of free
milling gold ore is found, but when it
is, it is a veritable bonanza.—West

Rich (Iold Quartz.  <;
Says the Husbandman: The richest gold-bearing quartz even i found in
Montana was lately unearthed by five
men near the old town of New York,'
The lead has been sunk to a depth pf
2B feet. The walla are well defined,
and the width between them ia eight
feet. In richness the ore far exoela
the Drum Lummon or any other mine
yet discovered in the Rocky mountain
region, lt is deoen-MS»d,-an# «*»?•'
from (20,000 to 125,000 per ton. The
vein is literally filled with flh-i kind of
reok. The hardest portions of the ore
sre held together by wire gold. The
fortunate owners are all steady,, enterprising men. They propose working the property, and have no deairo
to sell any portion pf it. They are
ainking deeper, and contemplate leasing the mill at New York for working
the ore, They ean make exoellent
wages by the use of a hand mortal.—-

Charles Dickens Mine
The Charles Dickens mine, in the
Yankee Fork district, Idaho, hat been
sold to an English company with a
capital atoek of £260,000. -The, fint
instalment of the purchase rooney has
been paid and possession given to the
purchasers. The remainder will be
paid in Mareh, The price' is not
stated. Thia is one ofthe noted mines
of Idaho. It has been held and
worked, hitherto, in such a way as lo
give the least possible: results, The
mine has produced something like
0300,000, and thero has nearly as
much run away in the tailing., owing
to the crude process used in working
the ore. There is also a Urge amount
of ore on the dump; probably not leas
than 5,000 tons uf good, profitable ore
to won. No work to apeak of has
been done in the mine for four or five
years, and none at all for three years.
The company gets a magnificent properly, of high repute among all who
hare knowledge of it. Thete is every
reason to expect that a systematic development will ahow the work hitherto
done to be a mere random beginning.
Instead uf sending out amateurs, ur
even worse, as is often done hy investors in mir western mines, the
Charlea Dickens company tins made N
Treweek, the well-knuwu mining expert, its resident maiisger. He will

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
ILIMIIEP.)
ON THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
tho Columiuan* Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf New Westminster, to be known ns tlio
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." Tho concern lias been for
nearly a yenr owned and controlled by
tbo British Columbia Stationery nnd
Printing Company, of Nuw Westminster,
Viotoria and Vancouver. The objoet of
tho uow company is to continue the publication of the British Columiuan newspaper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whose individual interest it will bo
to promote tho development, especially
of the Mainland, Thore will lw no
elaokening of tho energy hitherto displayed in the management of tho establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
Tlie Columiuan will continue to bo entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, nnd will devote itself
to tlto advancement of ench schemes ns
may bo considered in the public interest.
The concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, the book and
'stationery establishment iu this city
having been taken over by Mr, T. H,
Pearaon, who will continue to carry it on
in his own name and for his own benefit.
It is desirable thnt a daily newspaper
should be maintained In this oity, nnd
the now company asks for publio patronage on tho ground thnt It is engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote tlio
publio welfare. It asks that tht Col*
umuian bo judged on its own merits and
supported only so long as its policy is
consistent with its professions. Iu consequence of this business change all accounts duo tbo concern must bo settled
without delay so that the books of tho
former company may bo adjusted and
closed. Address nil communications and
remittances to

The Fraser Hatcher)'.
PUTTING YOUNC FRY INTO Pin LAKE.
Uur reporter on hiB rounds to-day,
found ut the Colonial, amongst the
eastward bound railway passengers delayed, waiting with more or less impatience, nccording to thc pressing naturo of their business, Mr. Alox. Begg,
of Calgary, provinco of Alberto, who
yesterday, ho stilted, took a trip to
Pitt Lake along with Mr. Thos. Mownt,
inspector of fisheries for this province,
who went there to distribute 052,000
young salmon from the hntchery. The
steamer Adelaide was chartered for the
occasion and left hev wharf shortly
after 7 o'clock, Tlie weather was not
the most desirable for au excursion
trip, on account of tho continuous rain
during tlio day, which, with the heavy
atmosphere, eclipsed n grenter portion
of the magnificent, romantic and beautiful scenery along Pitt Luke and river.
On arriving opposite the hatchery tho
Iteamor took in two long boxes, built
in scow fashion, probably thirty inches
wide nnd twenty feet long. These
scows are divided into compartments,
separated by perforated movable zinc
partitions, which allow free passage of
water from tho bow of the scow through
scupper holes which can be opened
and closed nt pleasure. The zino pnr-
titions are taken out whon tho depositing grounds are reached, nntl tho
young,
DELICATE F1IV SWIM OCT
by the stern of the scow from thoir
cribs, without boing handled or disturbed in any way. Thoy soon find
security from larger lish, and food under stones and gravel, nnd scatter
themselves after a short time along the
shores of tho hike or river. The draw
bridge over Pitt river, on the innin
line of the C.P.R., wus opened to allow
the Adelaide to pass, going and returning, which caused but little delay. Tho
trip would have been most enjoyable
had tho day been fair. As it was,
bold headlands and neighboring ridges,
precipitous iu some places from the
waters' edgo from two to three thouaand feet high, had tlieir snowy heads
wrapped in clouds and mist. Numerous
miniature waterfalls,from meltinr snow
and rain crept down their sides like
silver threads amongst the hoary moas.
The first scow-lead of 702,000 suck-
eyes were deposited at tho mouth of a
beautifully transparent small stream
which flows frqm the west, some distance up the lake. The second scow
cleared out its cargo of 250,000 Quin-
nat fry at the head of Pitt Lake where
the eastern branch of the river omptiei
in. The steamer could not proceed
up the river, as the ice hnd not yet
broken away. The return trip was
made in shorter time, aa the steamer
. waa not allowed to put on full speed
when the scows nlongiide contained
the young fry, as they might possibly
be damaged. Mr. Mowat and his.
assistants appear to be personally
INTERESTED IN THE BDOCIMS
ef their establishment and the welfare
of their Vory rtuinerdue'fnmiiy. Reaching the slender wharf nt tho cannery
building! of the Bon Accord Co., opposite the hatchery, the steamer mude fast,
and fish party walked along the short
line (600 yards) of wooden railway,
constructed by Mr. Mowtt to ennblo
him to reach the establishment and
bring fish, &c, to and from it on a
hand car, an excellent arrangement
for a roadway between the river and
the hatchery, across the marshy ground
which intervenes. The building, whieh
is 30 feet above the level of the Fraser
river, ib 110x40 feet and two stories
high. It is built iu a most substantial mannor, and isfitted on the ground
floor with 71 hatchery troughs; eaoh
35 feot long 10 inches wide and 6
inches deep. In these troughs tho impregnated ova nro placed on traya, and
watched through the different stages
of embryo; moved into baskets and
watched with all the care nnd attention necessary for the artificial raising
of the buby fish. Mv. M. Mowat and
two efficient assistants, trained in the
eastern hatcheries, are in charge of the
details. They have had excellent success this season, having secured, impregnated and laid down, 0,661,000
ova, of which one million were deposited, in tho eyed-Btato, in the Cowichan und Nanaimo rivers, on Vanoouver Island, in Junuary last. The
"oyed-ova" means thnt about a month's
time after the ova is doposited in the
trays tho eggs show signs of life by the
appearance of two dark spots, the future eyes of the fish. The eggs ore
then taken and packed in damp moss,
if required to be transported to another
hatchery or placed in suitable, protected spots, to be hatched in a stream or
lake without nny furthor attention
from enro-tnkors. Of this year's hatching 375,000 had, previous to yesterday's operations, been placed in the
Coquitlam river; the balance yei in
hatchery will be distributed in the
Harrison river and other tributaries of
tho Fraser, us soon us tho
KBV ARE uboe eSouoii
to take care of themselves wheu turned
out. Mr. Begg, who has had considerable experience in connection with
artificial fish culture, having somo
yeurs ago, takon several thousands of
ova ncross tlie Atlantic from Mr. Wil-
mot's pioneer and parent hntchory, in
Newcnstlo, Ontario, and had them
hatched in London and distributed in
several streams in England and Scotland, says ho can speak with confidence
us to Mr. Thos. Mowat's fitness to fill
the important position to which the
Dominion government has appointed
him. His early training in New Brunswick on tho Atlantic coast, in a climate
almost as moist as this, but much colder
in winter, gives him, ns well ns Mr.
M. Mowat, tho nerve, tho hnrdihood,
tho knowledge of boating, fishing by
net or otherwise, which are all important when tnken in connection with
artificial fish-culture, as woll ns tho
protection and inspection of the very
important and almost unlimited fisheries of British Columbia. It is evident, from a glanco at Mr. Mowat's
career from the time of his location of
the Fraser hatchery, its completion,
and successful operations under him us
caretaker, until lntoly us inspector of
fisheries for tho province, thnt he is
tho right mnn in tho right plnco. From
somo couversution Mr. Begg hud with
him in reference to his work lust summer off tho west coast of the province,
exploring uud investigating the
1IF.K1" SEA FIHUKIIIKK,
which may form the basis of another
interview,—he is inclined to think
that Mr. Inspector Mownt will continue to fill that position with honor
to himself and grent benefit to tho
province and credit to the government.
There is no doubt of the fact that the
want of better protection, to assist and
maintain unture's operation, especially
at tho breeding season, tho greed of
fishermen by over-fishinc, tho unrestricted use of the most deadly engines
set everywhere, especially in tho east,
for killing and unduly stopping the
fish on their upward passage to their
spawning grounds, tend to decrease
tho supply of valuable fish in inland waters, and should bo
guarded ngainst, even in British
Columbia, whore it would seem at
present almost impossible to do much
damage by over-nshing. Mr. BBgg
snys that he and tho other passengers
delayed by tho obstructions on the
railway traok regret the delay, yet they
feel quite at home at the Colonial, and
are well satisfied at the thoughtful and
handsome provision made hy the Superintendent of tho C. P. R. in having
them sont to suoh a comfortable hotel.
Jaqcsh Snow, Gunning Cove, N. S.,
writes: "I was completely prostrated
with tbo Hshinn, but hearing of Dr.
Thomas' Kclectric Oil, I procured a bottle, and it dono so much good that I got
another, and before it was used, I was
well. My son was cured of a Ind eold
by tho use of half a bottle. It goes like
wlld.flre, and makes cures wherever it is
used.      ^^^^^^i^^h^
