uotciuporarr Opinions.
A return 1ms just beon made to
Parliament in icgurd to the opera
lion of tiie "Irish Arrenrs of Kent
Act. According to tliis ,£2,570,000,
wliich was owing to the landlords
hy tho .farmers, hits heon wiped ont
under the net since 1882. Of this
iimount Ulster gained ^820,000 ill
jvmission otTent; Leinster £250,-
000; Ooniinnglit £1,000,000, nnd
Minister .£500,000. The Nationalist papers, commenting upon this
return, stato that the land net hns
alreudy secured to the farmeis a
permanent reduction of rent exceeding .£500,000 yearly. Tlie relations now existing between landlords and tenants are amicable. The
government has resolved upon a
large reduction of the forces in Ireland.
Tho Maori King and his chiefs
recently had an interview with Lord
Derby nt tho colonial ollice, and presented their memorial. Their request is thnt, in accotdance with the
treaty of Waitangi, (1) that the
Maorios shall bo allowed to legislate
for themselves; (2) that the native
chief shall bo appointed as a commissioner by Her Majesty; (3) that
tho greater portion of tho taxes
levied on tho Maories shall bo returned to them in order to provide
for the expenses of government; (4)
that the European judges in the
native land court shall he super
sedod by judges appointed liy tho
natives; and (5) that tho lands
"wrongly" obtained by the government be returned to the Maories.
Lord Derby, whilst expressing tlie
strongest desire to deal justly with
tho native races and to abide by
treaties, pointed out the immense
difficulties whieh surround the question which had been brought before
him, aud declined to express an
opinion upon tin cxparle statement.
He promised that, after hearing
what tho government of New Zealand have lo say, tho home government wonld give its best attention
to the matter, and endeavor to do
justice
What is likely to provo one of
tho most useful inventions of the
ago hns just been patented by two
gentlemen of Michigan. It is n
Traill Telephone und Signal. By it
two engines striking the same section of track immediately signal
each other, and the engineors, with,
out slacking speed, can communicate, oi tlio station master at either
end cun call the engineer and talk
with him. A wire is stretched beside tho track hetweou stations and
opon at each ond. lt is about four
feet from the centre of the track,
nnd is upheld hy insulators so arranged that it presents a perfectly
even surface. At stations tlw wire
Is carried hack around the switches
on poles and into the depot, where
it ends. By n" push-button, its circuit can be closed on a ground wire,
whenever the depot master wishes
it. On this wire rests on arm swung
ou a double pivot from tho centre
of tho cab, capable of being reversed
so as to touch the wire when th
engine is running in either direction
and hehl to its place by coiletl wire
springs. The telephone wire is attached to the base of this rod, runs
through a generator run by steam
fioni tho boiler, thon through tho
telephone, and is grounded by being
attached to the wall of the "driving
wheels. When an engine enters a
section of track, tho sliding rod
resting on tho wire, it grounds tho
wire nt ono point through the driving wheels. As soon as another
engine enters the same section of
track it also grounds tho wire; thus
establishing a complete circuit uud
ringing tho signal bells of both engines. Neither head nor rear collisions are possiblo whero this signal
is used. It has been tested by railroad men, and been found to work
quite satisfactorily.—Globe.
' England is to have no assistance
from the great powers in the solution of the Egyptian difficulty. I
was feared from the first tliat French
jealousy would prove lhe rook upon
whioh tho diplomatic ship would
split, oud the result bus justified
the apprehension. So fur ns Mr.
Gladstone's refusal to yield tlie pas
to France ia concerned, tlie Tories
are said to approve of his policy,
and tho Liberals rejoice to havo
England unfettered. Naturally England's responsibilities in Egypt are
vastly increased by the failure of tho
'conference to attain tho objects hoped
from it, anil the nows that forty
thousand Abyssinian soldiers are on
their way to the relief of Kassala,
Columbian.

NEW  WESTMINSTER, B. C, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 188'.
NUMBER 16
garrison at Zeiluli, is most opportune, as showing that the government hove, after nil, adopted the
quickest and most etfectual means of
assisting the garrison-, in the Soudan.
Tho troops borrowed by Admiral
Howett from King John of Abyssinia are composed of cavalry and
infantry, brave, exceliont shots, and
eaoh man capable of living for days
upon a bag of flour, such as oan ho
eaRily slung over the shoulder. They
nre armed with swords, fowling-
pieces or rifles, spears and shields.
They nre claimed to be equally
brave aud clover with the Mahdi's
soldiers, with the advnntagoof being
better marksmen. As ought to
have been known . to the party-
blinded writers who havo so diligently vilified tho British government
for its "inaction," to despatch a
Br|tish army"W'ho Souirah at this
moment—oxcept for such guerilla
service as is expected from those
ordered to Zoilah—would be tantamount to sending many of .them to
certain death. The Egyptian soldier is unreliable; it would tako too
long to bring men from India; aiid
under the circumstances the course
taken must bo acknowledged the
only practicable one. Further comfort is to be extracted from the
announcement that Stanley has—
'much to the disgust of the Tories,
who have systematically discredited
Mr. Gladstone's foreign policy—declared his belief that General Gordon is in no danger, and has several
avenues' of escape opon to him if he
should deem it advisable to retreat
from Khartoum.—The Week.
The Ticliborne Claimant.
The famous Tiuhborno esse is again
the subject of public discussion and
will probably be reopened. The claimant to tho Ticliborne estato is now out
of prison on a ticket of leave, having
four years left out of a sentence of
fourteen years imposed upon him in
1874, when ho was, after a trial of 188
days, convicted of perjury. Roger
Charles Ticliborne, heir to the Tich-
bemo estates, sailed from Rio Janeiro,
April 20,1854, for Now York ou the
ship Bella, which wns lost at sea. In
18(15 Lady Ticliborne, liis mother, began tn advertise for him in English and
Australian papers, In 1866 a butcher
of Wagga Waggo, Australia, known as
Thomas Castro, asserted that ho was
Roger Charles Ticliborne nnd had been
saved from thu wrecked Bulla. Aftor
correspondence with Lndy Ticliborne
he left Australia and iu January, 1868,
mot lior in Paris. No was by her accepted ns her sun and given money,
although regarded us an impostor by
nearly all tho rest of tho family. Id
1868 Lady Ticliborne died. Previous
to this time the claimant had instituted
proceedings to obtain possession of the
estates, and had raised funds to prosecute the suit by selling bonds payable
upon his coming into possession. The
tirst famous trial was for recovery of
estates iu Hampshire and Dorsetshire,
valued nt £24,000 a year, lt was begun May 11, 1871, in tlio Court of
Common PlenB, and continued until
March 6, 1872, occupying, excluding
adjournments, 103 days. Tho jury
then interposed nnd declared themselves satisfied that the claimant was
not Roger Charles Ticliborne. Castro,
otherwise Arthur Orton, wa. then arrested for perjury, but released on
bail. He wns indicted as "Thomas
Castro, otherwise Arthur Orton." His
trial began April 23,1873, and continued till February 28,1874, resulting
in his convio'ibn and sentonco as before stated. He wns convicted and
sentenced as Arthur Orton. There
were threo Orton brothers—Edward,
Charles and Arthur. The two former
have sworn that their brother is confined iu an Australian lunatic asylum,
and tho English government has consented lo bring him to England. There
is snid to be nn duubt as to the identity
of this lunatic with Arthur Ouon, and
thu question is again raised, Who is
the "claimant?" Ho was found guilty
as Arthur Orton, although at a certain
stage of tho trial the prosecution, ns a
result of a visit to Australia by a confidential ngont of Iho Orown, dropped
tho attempt to prove that such wns his
namo. The jury, however, found
specifically that ho was Arthur Orton,
nnd as such he was sentenced. This is
one of the most notable cases in the
annals of criminal jurisprudence. It
is now generally admitted and believed
that the claimant is not Roger Ticli-
borne, and since his imprisonment
other havo from time tu time dcclurod
themselves the missing heir. One of
these now lives in California, and will
probably go to England thi. fall. It
is assorted thnt ho hns been fully identified by old servants of the family,
now living in California.—-Seattle Post.

How Ilie Money does.
A !al« number of the Astormu
ooiitniiiK somii pai'tioulara of n vory
large nwimllo whicli has neon practised njion somo of our cannery-
men, and whieh wns discovered and
exposed hy Mr. AI. AI. Knglish of
this city. It seems that the San
Francisco agent through whom a
number of our cannery men have
been doing business has been in tho
habit of claiming large sums for
"reclamation" on cases of fish said
to have heen condemned in Liverpool. These sums represent many
thousands of dollars, nnd it litis
often been a source of wonder how
so many cases turned out bad. Mr.
English was among the victims,
The San Francisco agent sent in to
bim a claim of between $25,000
nnd $30,000 for reclamation. Mr.
English was greatly puzzled, nnd
would not satisfy tlie demand until
he hud made enquiries. The San
Franoisco man sent up an agent to
press the chum, and evon suggested
that a mortgage should bo given
liim on Mr. English's canneries and
property as security. This suggestion was resented, and Mr. English
proceeded to San Franoisco to make
enquiries. The agent assured liim
he was very sorry but these reclamations had been made by the
Liverpool agent, and there seemed
to be no way out of the difficulty
but to pay up. Air. English liad
his suspicions, but kept his own
counsel. Going to tho steamship
office he caused it to be understood
thit he had returned to British Columbia, but in fact he took the
train for New York and proceeded
without delay to Liverpool. Arriving there he engaged an attorney
und with him dropped in most un-.
expectedly upon the Liverpool
agency of his San Francisco agent.
The books of this agency were
culled for and examined, and it was
not long before Air. English had
the satisfaction of discovering a
good-sized nit. He found that
when the accounts were balanced,
instead of having to hand over his
cannery and other worldly possessions to the agents, he had a balance
of some $25,000 to his credit. The
Sau Francisco agent's reclamation
ligtn-CH were purely fictitious and
prepared undoubtedly for tho purpose of fraud. How many other
victims have su tiered from a similar
cause it might be difficult to ascertain, but we must congratulate Air.
English ' upon both recovering what
was justly due to him and exposing
n most rascally piece of bare-faced
swindling.
The Commission.
When   the  Chinese commission
came to this province it met with a
very cool reception at Victoria, und
u great many foolish and mischievous things were said hy some of the
newspapers,     That   such   remarks
were entirely out of place and uncalled-for must appear quite evident
to any person who reflects upon the
circumstances.   There wus no g
end to be accomplished by turning
away from a commission which hud
been   appointed expressly for the
purpose   of   investigating   an   evil
which the people of this province
were most anxious to have removed.
What   possible   harm   could come
from giving   evidence   before this
commission!    None whatever;  but
to ignore it, nnd insult it, and pronounce it a delusion and a fraud,
might seriously imperil  the cause
which every true patriot must have
at heart,      The  commission may
have been a fraud and a subterfuge;
but there was no evidence of this
when it came to tho provinco, und
co union decency should have protected its members from insult until  it hud  been clearly shown they
deserved it,   Tiik Columbian defended   the   commission   from  the
unjust attacks which had been made
tipnu  it.    It pointed out the iluiigm*
nf refusing t<i improve what seemed
n   rare opportunity of placing before  the federal   parliament, in au
official  form, the views of tlm province on so important n matter.    Wu
ni'jst   confess that  we are grcntly
disappointed  with  the result.    The
commission  came to  this province
with   ti   great   deal   of   expensive
machinery,   lt travelled in a special
car, and   spared itself  no   luxury
wliich  money could purchaso.    It
brought   a secretary all  the  way
from Regiiwi, in tho north-west territory, who fell under the influence
of temptation almost as soon ns he
reaohed our shores, and lost hid usefulness.     But to these things we
have no wish to object, if the corn-
minion   bad performed its duties
with any sort of completeness whon
it arrived. Two or three days it
sut iti Victoria, and it sat nearly
three hours on (he mainlantT! It
went to Yale, tu Burrard Inlet and
to Nanaimo, but at none of these
places, we believe, was any enquiry
held or any evidence taken, At
Nanaimo Hon. Mr. Olmpleau stated
that he did not come us a Chinese
commission at all, but on other
business! There can be no reasonable objection urged against the commissioner's gratifying his very natural desire to see as much of the
country as he can. The knowledge
might be useful to him after he returns to Ottawa. But why should
the other commissioner, Judge Gray,
follow Mr, Chapleau about the country at the public expense? It is
repotted that his allowance as commissioner is $10 per day and travelling expenses. Judge Gray has been
till over this country many times,
and will gain no useful knowledge
by following the other commissioner
about. But as The Columbian defended the appointment of this commission, and counselled the people
to avail themselves of its sittings to
represent their grievance, is will not
now hesitate to say thut the actual
work performed by the commissioners looks very much like a sham.
It was not fair to condemn the commission until it gave proof of its
failure or success, nud we protested
ugainst the attitude assumed hy the
people of Victoria. Having proved
itself very much of a delusion we
now protest intelligently against
the course it has pursued. Wo do
not know how much evidence may
lmvo been missed at Victoria, but
we know that the people of the
mainland, and the people of Nanaimo, were allowed no reasonable opportunity to .give their testimony.
At this city the commissioners did
not begin to receive evidence until
near 4 o'clock, and then adjourned
about 6. If it was thought worth
while to come here at all, surely it
was worth while to perform with
reasonable completeness the work of
enquiry. At Nanaimo, tho Free
Press says, Mr. Chapleau complained
that the whole time of the commission was taken up in this city
by ouo witness! The statement is
not true, and either Air. Chapleau
or the Free Press has been guilty of
gross misrepresentation. The first
witness examined here was Mr.
Homer. After him were examined
very fully Messrs. Bole und Laidlaw, and Air. D. Chishotm and some
others mado brief statements. But
if one witness had occupied all the
sitting (less than three hours), should
that be a cause of complaint) The
commissioners themselves admitted
that Air, Bole's evidence was of
great importance, and if lt was important and pertinent to the question nnder consideration, suroly the
commission need not complain of
its length. The mistake was not
on the part of Air. Bole or tho
other witnesses, but on the part of
the commissioners, They deliberately arranged their movements in
such a way that they could devote
only three hours to actual business
in this city, where they should cer
tainly have spent not less than a
week. If Air. Chaplenu's engagements were so pressing as to make
it impossible for him to do justice
to the subject, ho should not have
undertaken to turn the enquiry into
a farce. There were many people
in this city willing to go before the
commission and competent to give
intelligent evidence. Our city representative, Air. Jus. Cunningham,
Mayor Dickinson, the police constables, and others were ready; but
no opportunity was afforded them
to speak. Scarcely any person
dreamed that when the commission
rose at 6 o'clock it would not sit
again. At Nanaimo the behavior
of tho commission was even worse.
The people of that city were not
only prepared, but anxious, to give
evidence on the Chinese question.
But the commissioners intimated
thtf they didn't go there for that
purpose! . This is more than disappointing—-it is almost insulting.
There was ground enough and material enough to engage the attention of the commission for three
months in this province, and its
net md work is confined to three
days! Jf it- be true, us reported,
Unit the Hon. Air. Clmplenii expressed the opinion that enough
evidence had been taken to satisfy
the government, the result of the
enquiry may be very much more
satisfactory than tho manner of its
performances. Let tis hope this
may he true; but when a federal
minis er again favors this province
with a visit let him uot act as if his
chief concern was to get buck with
alt possible s|>eed to the Dominion
ipital.

Angel's Visits.-—Hon. Mr. Chapleau, replying,,to n deputation from tho
Viotoria Board of Trade, said "hia
visit had afforded him groat pleasure.
He had thoroughly enjoyed the fino
climate and thu grand scenery of tho
country and the generous hospitality
of tho inhabitants, Evory year in future a cabinet minister would visit
British Columbia; and if a resident
minister was not selected frnpi the
provincial representation, 'it might
happen that ond of the visiting minis*
ters would become so enchanted with
tho climate and the boundless resources of the country as to reside
within its borders permanently." Now,
this is all very nice, aud vory pleasant;
but if federal ministers are coming to
this provinco every year, wo should
advise them not to be in such a hurry
to leavo it, ' To tako a journey of 0,000
miles for a visit of two weeks is very
expensive and very unsatisfactory.

J. B. Tupfeu's Death.—A correspondent sends tho following from
Vale. On Saturday morning, as train
No. 4 was crossing east from Port
Moody, a sad nnd fatal accident oc-
curod to Brakoman James fi, Tupper.
As the train approached the"larmon
River bridgo at 9:55 n. m. sum > obstruction waB in the way, and an tho
train was crossing the bridge the deceased was knocked off and instantly
killed. His remains wero brought
Yale for interment. Deceased was
formerly from Masquodboit, Hnlifajt
Co., Nova Scotia, where his patents
still reside. Ho hnd been with us but
a short while, yet during his stay,
through his manly conduct and genial
manners, hnd accumulated many
friends, who now mourn his departure.
The only relative present was his
brother, Eddy, who was summoned
from Cook's Ferry at an early hour
Sunday morning. His funeral took
place on Monday, from the Episcopal
church.

on tho line of the train, which ran
over him, killing liim dead on tlie spot.

Police Court.—On Monday morning thero were 5 cases before tho court.
Oloudy, a Spaniard, got 0 mos. for
■applying liquor to Indians. This is
an old offender, and has just completed a term in the penitentiary. Casino,
another Spaniard, was fined $50 for a
similar offence. Two Indians, Billy
and Harry, wero fined 925 each for
having liquor in their possession.
Phillip was assessed 82,25 fur being
drunk. Yestorday morning Louis wns
brought up and remanded.
Very Gknedouh. —Among othor
complaints mado by the Victoria Board
of Trade to Hon. Mr. Chapleau, was
that of the shipping regulations. It is
.said that American tugs hare a decided
'advantage over those of British Ool-
lumbia, and do many things contrary
•to our interests. Mr. R. P. Rithet
■snid there wns but one remedy for the
-evil—to make Victoria the only pnrt
■of entry iu the province 1 This is very
like Victoria, Sho wants to be made
Uy law the entrepot for nll importations, nnd will then impose just whnt
charges suit her insatiable greed. But
the fedoral government will never
mako such a regulation. It would be
monstrous.
Labor Yield.—At (Hen settlement,
about thine miles above Langley, they
ore producing sume results whieh are
worthy of note, Mr. Noil Cameron,
of that settlement, produced, from
one oat, 130 stalks, each of which
boro 125 oats, making n total of 10,-
250 oats from one seed! About two*
thirds of tho crop shows an incronse
equally wonderful. Mr. Mitchell
McMillan, of tho same settlement,
planted ono potatoe eyo from whieh
he has 100 blanches all in full bloom!
'These facts aru vouched for by Mr.
Wm. Rosa, immigration agent, whom
no person would suspect of exaggeration. Mr. Ross says thero is some of
the beat wheat in that region ho ever
Jaw In hia life.
Seattle Dull.—Thero is no dis*
guisiug the fact—for it absolutely do-
cbnoB to be disguised—that wc have
hard times here in Seattle, thnt money
is tight, nnd tlmt business is languishing from thu luck of what has beon
called the sinews of war, but whioh
might also be, with equal propriety,
denominated the nerves and muscles
of pence. Of course, In this respect
wo are not u whit worse—-if, indeed,
wo are as badly—off as our neighbors
on'the const, or our compatriots on
the continent, but, all tho same, moro
than ono complaint is heard from those
whom tlio shoe pinches, and the sig*
nificant quiet of our streets and lack
of that hurry nud bustle, to whieh wo
lmvo for somo years been accustomed,
intuit be admitted as facts which cannot bo got over, aud which we must
take steps to remedy, or undergo &
period of suffering among our laboring
classes and of financial collapse among
those who have hitherto been esleemod
well off, or, nt least, in comfortable
circumstances.— Seattle Post.

The Commission at Nanaimo.
After leaving thia city on Tuesday evening tho Ohinese commission
proceeded to Granville, whore Hon,
Mr. Chapleau had an opportunity of
examining the future terminus of the
0. P. R. On Wednesday morning
tho commissioners wont on board tho
Dominion Btr. Sir James Douglas,
whioh had been sent up to, meet them,
nud wont over to Nnnaimo. They arrived in the coal city at 1 p. m., but
held no enquiry whatever and gave
the people no opportunity of expressing their views on the Chinese question! Hon. Mr. Chapleau stated, to a
Free Press reporter, that ho "did not
como to Nanaimo to ait aa a commission and tako evidence, but on other
business!" He added that one witness
had taken up the entire lime of the
commission at New Westminster, and
that a soriea of printed questions
would bo submitted to the people, and
any answers forwarded to Ottawa
would be embodied In the commission's report. He was pressed to
spend one day in Nanaimo, but declined because he must hasten back to
Ottawa. Tn reply to a deputation of
workingmen ho complimented the peoplo of Nanaimo on the courteous manner in which thoy had recoived thu
commission which was in mnrked contrast with the shabby reception it had
met with at Victoria. As n reason
why the commission did nut sit at Na-
nnimo he suid he had already sufficient
evidence on tho question to satisfy
him thnt a very great -grievance existed, and thnt ho felt certain tho information he hnd received frum Mr,
Gordon and the other citizens with
whom he had conversed, covered all
the ground that would be traversed by
it sitting of the commission. He as*
snred tho deputation that tho address
and nny furthor ovidonco ho might receive from Nanaimo would bo laid before the executive council nnd bo givon
tho most careful consideration, He
concluded his remarks by saying that
he had learned aufllo.ent of tho Chinese evil to intimate that the Dominion government would bring in n restrictive mensuro at the noxt session ef
the Dominion parliament. He further intimated that ho was delighted
with what ho had seon of British Coiumbin, and would like to oome back
next year. At 10 p. in. the Sir James
Dougjaa left with the commissioners
for Victoria.

(Correspondence ot (lie Columbian.)
Okanagon, Aug. lo.- -On tho 16th
ult., Mr Frank Quesnel, nephew of

juriea from which he died on the 23rd.
He was riding quickly along the road,
and did not observe a tree which overhung the way, till he had just time
to bend his head, und received the
blow on his neck. He was an exemplary young man, and less than a year
from Quebec—-Last month our enterprising merchant, Mr. P. L. Anderson, returned from a visit to the Middle States, and was accompanied liy

The great question of the day ia the
final resting place for this end of the
C. P. R., and s great city with one
foot on Coal Harbor and the other on
English liny looms up in the near
future.— 1'he sudden break in our
long spell of very fine weather haa decided the throng of pleasure seekers
at Hastings to declare the bathing
season at an end, aud a number have
already broken camp and departed
for their homes at the royal city.—
The social dance given by Mr. Geo.
Blaok, of the Brighton House, Hastings, on Friday night, waa a very
grand affair, and the most successful
ever held at the inlet. The large hall
of the hotel wu beautifully decorated by the lady visitors of the place
with flags, evergreens and flowers, and
when lighted had a vory charming
effect. The Hnppy Hottentots, who
furnished the best of music throughout the evening, paid a high compliment tt. the occasion by allowing
the grand insignia and coat of

British Colombia Indians.
In a second letter to the Lindsay
Post Mr. -Lenihan aays: "In my letter
of the 20th ultimo I suggested the
establishment of Indian schools in
British Columbia, an industrial sohool
and farm at eaoh of the following
named centres of population, viz.,
Chilliwhack, Kamloops, or Okanagan,
Williams Lake, on the mainland, and
Cowichan and Comox, or Albernie, on
Vancouvera Island, would be of great
advantage to the Indians. In addition to those schools I would suggest
that at least ten Indian children, fivo
boya and fivo girls, of ages between
ton and fifteen yean, may be selected
from amongst the various tribes annually and placed in the existing schools
of the Province. They ahould be
clothed, boardod and educated for a
period of at least five years, with a
view to their becoming teachers of
primary schools at the various villages
throughout the proviuce. Aftqr five
years from tbe commencement of this
system ten should retire in each year
and ten others take their places. The
selection of suoh pupils might be made
by tho lieutenant-governor and the
senators and members for the province.
I consider the native children capable
of a high degree of cultivation. I would
nlso suggest the granting of more liberal subsidies to the Indian schools
now in ozistence than at present, and
that tho existing schools may be supplied with all requisite books, maps,
and other sohool apparatus, aud complete medicine chests be supplied to
the Indian missionaries annually for
the use of the Indians. The Indians
ot British Columbia are generally industrious and self, sustaining, nud many
of them quite thrifty and in comfortable circumstances. Some tribes live
by fishing mid chasing; othen follow
agriculture and other pursuits such u
fishermen, lumbermen, boatmen and
farm laborers, otc. I must not bo uu
derstood aa advocating the encouragement of a spirit of dependence. The
native race are proud and would not
liko to bo considered aa paupers. They
are strongly attached to their liberty
and independence, but there are very
many aged, infirm and indigent
inmmgst thom who would not object
to receive somo warm clothing and:
food on the approach of winter. It
may be urged in opposition to my
views that all tliese reforms would,
largely increaso the expenditure for
Indian account, but in answer to such
objections, I believe I am safe in asserting that, from one-fourth to one-
fifth of thu revenue of the province
from duties on imports is paid by tho
native race. Now, one-fifth of the annual revenue of B.C. is about ono hundred and fifty thousand ($160,000) dollars,
This is a respectable sum to hnvo to
draw un. Suppose one-third or one-
half of this amount wns spout ench
year in tho civilization and education
of the native population great good to
the Dominion would be thu result, lu
1860 the colonial government of the
province voted tho sum of £100 say
9500 '*for expenses connected with the
Indian tribes of the colony" and some
gentlemen are to be fuund who believe
that this policy should bo continued,
arguing that '-the Indians have the
free use of the highways, and streams
and all tho other advantages of modern
civilization." They ahould have men-
tinned the fresh air and warm sun,"
NEW8 FROM AU PARTS OF THE WORLD.
London, Aug. 21.—Advices from
Africa state that tlio natives of the
Zambezi country have revolted, nnd
massacred the entire Portuguese population. Reinforcements have been
asked for. The British vice-consul iB
missing.
Paris, Aug. 21.—In nn interview
yesterday a member of the Chineso
diplomatic corps declared that the
Pekin government would never recognize that it owud France a sou as indemnity for the LangBon affair, which
was a pure misunderstanding. The
bombardment of Kelung and Fori
Ohow, he Baid, hnd only tended to intensify the determination to resist
France's demand. The Nationalist
states that Li Fong Pso will be allowed
two ■ days to obtain n final reply from
Pekin regarding the indemnity demanded by France. Tho corvette
Champlaiu and tho cruiser Naiade will
proceed shortly to reinforce the French
squadron in Chiuco waters.
Cairo, Aug. 21.—Advices from Don-
goln state that a scout arrived thore
from Bl Mahdi's camp at Lebelgdid,
where he reports typhus fover is decimating El Mahdi's army. Staten Bey
is with El Mahdi. Hussein Pasha,
former governor of Berber, and eight
teen of his followers arrived at camp
with sand on their heads as a token of
submission to El Mahdi. El Mahdi's
army has boen well organized by a former Arabist officer.
New York, Aug. 21.—Truth'* latest
sensation is the following: Thia morning intense excitement prevailed at
Jersey Oity, over the report thnt n
number of cases of leprosy have been
discovered in that city. It is claimed
there is nu longer doubt thnt a number
of lepers could be found anient- Celestial laundrymen. The county physician, when asked about it, Baid: "We
are fully alive to tho importance of the
charges made, but can take no action
until somo specific complaint is formulated. It is a serious matter." Dr.
H. H. Cahill was seen. He said:
"These Chinese generally live in basements with dark cellars in the rear,
where uo white man is ever allowed to
go. No one can tell how much disease
is lurking in them. I am personally
cognizant of a number of cases which
I think are leprosy in the earliest
stages. The disease is primarily caused
by vice and filth, and the Chinese arc
addicted to both. 1 have no doubt
that there nre many cues concealed in
these caverns, right in tho very heart
of Jersey City and Hoboken. Iu Snn
Franoisco they are quarantined, and

Paris, Aug. 22.—-Admiral Courbett
was instructed to bombard the arsenal
at Foo Chow this morning, nnd land a
detachment of troops, and destroy the
war material accumulated thero, which
is of immense value. This action is

YESTERDAY'S DESPATCHES
(Special to the Columbian.)
Paris,  Aug. 25. —A  dispatch  from
Hanoi of to-day states thnt Gen. Millet
has taken the necessary measures for repelling the expected Chinese invasion.
It is rumored in Paris that China has
made a formal declaration of war nud
notified the powers to thnt effect. French
papera are indignant at the statements
made by the London Tlmrs respecting
the bombardment of Foo Chow. La
Ptxtnee says the Chinese forsseing the
bombardment of Foo Chow, stripped the
arsenal of its portable valuables. It also
uys the Frenoh are making coaling stations of Pondicheiry and Make.
Vienna, "Aug. 25.—A special from
Shanghai says; "The arsenal nt Foo
Chow is tn ruins, and 1800 workmen out
of employment. Tho arsenal cost 42
million francs, and the arms and ammunition destroyed are valued at 14 million
francs,

Wnter Coarse Buy, but heavy masses of
dangerous ice rendered Water Course
Bay exceedingly dangerous, nnd moving
to Discovery Harbor the station was
there established ou the site occupied by
the English expedition of 1875. The
erection of a honso was immediately commenced, and stores nud equipment* were
landed. On August 2(}th came the parting betweon the Greely pnrty and the

February our mercury froze and remained solid for 16 days,   The mercury
in the thermometer iuvariably rose during storms or high winds. The highest
barometer was slightly abovo 31 inches.
Tiie greatest variations >vero in whiter.
An electrometer, an instrument used to
ascertain the presence of electricity was
set up but not the slightest result was
obtained. Tho displays of the Aurora
wero very good, but not to bG compared
with those soeu at Discovery Island or
Upper Navik. So fnr as Greely could
observe no crackling sound accompanied
the display, and the general shape was
that of a ribbon. Tlie southwesterly
horizon wns the quarter in which the
brightest displays wore seen.   Nares re-

There were no electrical disturbances
save those manifested by a rumbling
liko distant thunder, hoard twice, far
awny to the north. In the courso of the
tidal observations made, the very interesting fact was discovered that
THE TIDES
nt Lady Franklin Bny cnnie from the
north, while those nt Melville Bay and
Capo Sabine wero from the south, Tiie
temperature of this north tide is two
degrees wanner than that of the south
tide at Capo Sabine. Why this was
Greely would not venture to state. He
used in measuring the ebb and flow of
tho tide a fixed gage iron rod planted in
the mud. Tiio average rise of spring
tides at Lady Franklin Bny wns found to
he eight feet. At Cape Sabine the high-
cot tide's rise wus twelve feot. Surf wns
only observed twice during tho two
yenrs at Lady Franklin Bay. The average temperature of the wnter was 2D
degrees above zero. Wolves weighing
ninety pounds wore killed around Fort
Conger. There are foxes and other animals. Fish is wonderfully scarce. Perhaps tho greatest surprise of tlie expedition was on taking from Lnke Alexander, a fresh water'lake 15 feet above
tlie sen level, a four pound salmon.
THE   VEOETATlON
at Lady Franklin Bay is about the same
ns nt Capo Sabine. It comprises mosses,
lichens, willow nnd saxifrage. The
highest velocity of the wind was registered during terrific storms, being 80
miles por hour. Lockwood's trip to the
north in 1882 nnd 1883, was productive
of most valuable results. Standing on
the 19th of May in each year where Dr,
Hayes had formerly stood, at nbout the
snmo time of dny, Lockwood, from an
elevation of 2000 feet, using his strongest glass on Hall's Basin and Robeson's
Channel, could discern nothing but ico
packs. Here tt was that Dr. Hayes
claimed to have seen his open Polar sen.
On the trip of 1882, Lockwood reached
tho highest latitude over attained—-83
deg. 25m. north, This wai about 500
miles directly north of Lady Franklin
Bny, but to get there he traveled over
1000 miles of open wuter and broken
packs, frequently causing him to retrace
liis scops SO miles. Lockwood sounded
the sea both years betweon Capo Bryant
nud Cnpe Britannia, but could not touch
bottom with 135 fathoms of lino. Mark-
harm a few years before, ahout one hundred miles west, hnd aot bottom at 72
fathoms, Lockwood found at his furthest north about the sumo vegetation aa
at Lady Franklin Bay, but no signB of a
Polar current or au open Polar sea. In
1883, he was stopped near Capo Bryant,
125 mites from Lady Franklin Bay, by
an open channel extending west to the
coast of Grinncll Land. Tho width of
this channel varied from 200 yards to
five miles, but on the north the ico packs
extended as far ns could he seen with
tho glass. With his supply of provisions,
the failure of which hnd caused his return the yenr before, Lockwood was
confident that he could have reached 65
degrees north :f this open channel had
not barred his way. No fossil remains
were discovered ou the trip, nnd the
only ones found were trunks of trees on
the southwest coast of Grinucl Land.
The only sea animals seen by Lockwood
at 85 25 wero walruses and seals; and,
strange to say, the walrus is not to be
found at Lady Franklin Bay nt 83 25.
The deflection of the magnetic needle
wns 10S dogreos west — more than a
quarter of a circle. As far as Lockwood
went, the northeast end of the Greenland
const continued. The maps of the new
regions ho discovered aro in possession of
Greely, and are very carefully made.
Although they were two years at Lady
Franklin Bny, tlie magnetic needle was
never quiet, excepting during storms.
In February, 1883, preparations for
THK RKTKEAT
wero mndo by establishing a dopot at
Cape Baird, 12 miles to the south. Day
after day the anxious men looked off
over Lndy Franklin Bay expecting the
ico to open so that they might commence
tho journey. At last, August 10, 1883,
the welcome n ws tlmt the ice was open
was brought. Alt hnd been mnde ready
and that very day the party embarked
in the little steam launch. Behind
them they left ttio dogs, as they could
not he taken. Four barrels of pork and
somo seal oil were left for tho animals.
Lady Franklin Bay was crossed to Cape
Baird, u distance of thirteen mites, nnd
then followed south as fnr ns Cnpo
Hawkes. Large quantities of heavy ico
were met and there was extreme danger every moment that the little launch
would be crushed. Several times nil the
boats were nonrly lost. The sufferings
of the nion were great. They were now
within fifty miles of Cnpe Sabine,
Striking from Capo Hawkes for Bates

seals wure killed and oaten while the
pnrt.v were drifting about. Evcutually
n heavy northwest gnlc arose ami drove
them hy Capo Sabine within u mile of
Brevoort Island, hut they could not

the most terrific gale that they had yet

tempest nnd the waves washed over them
again nud again, the spray freezing to
them and causing intense suffering. Night

"What could you teach?
■Hester looked at him with half resentment,
"Do you know many languages?"
alio said.
"Many languages? no!—a smattering of Greek and Latin."
"1 don't call them languages. I moan
French and Italian and Gorman: fori
know them all. I know them as well
as English. I haven't n bit of tho accent Britahninue: Madame Alplionse
said so, and I hope sho is a good authority. I will give cows, aa many as
they please; French one day ami tho
others tlio next. Not only should I
lie able to help mother, but I should
make a fortune, they all said. Threo
court always going: I should umko a
great deal of money, and then in ten
years or so I could retire, you know.
In ton years I should only be—" here
alio paused in tho fervor of conversation and. eyed hiin a littlo, with
doubt in her fnce. Then sho aaid,
quito calmly, "I forget the rest."
Edward Vernon listened with great
edification; lie forgot the (lower which
he was going to search for.
"I am vory sorry to discourago you
iu your plans, but I don't think Aunt
Catherine will turn you out."
"Don't you think ao?"
Heater, after her brag, which was
perfectly sincere, and of which she
bolioveil evory word, felt a littlo disappointed to be thus brought down
again.
'"No, I don't think so, Sho told
mc that you wero rude, but she was
not angry; sho only laughed."
At this Hester grew wildly red, and
stamped her foot. "She shall not—
she shall not—nobody shall laugh at
me!" sho cried. "I will tell mother
wc must go away."
"Don't go away. You must con-
aider that your mother will bo a great
deal more comfortable hore than in
lodgings Ju town. And you know you
aro very young. You had better bo a
littlo oldor before you begin tn give
cours. Don't bo angry: but if you
were to mount up to tho desk with
Vour short frock" (hero Hester looked
down at her feet, and in a sudden
agony perceived tho difference botween
her broad, old-fashioned shoes and tho
pointed toes of her companion) "and
short hair--" But tliis was more than
she could bear. .
"You are laughing at mo! You
too!" sho said, with a poignant tone of
mortification.
"No, my littio cousin, I will not
laugh; but you must let mo be your
friend, and show you what is best; for
you are very young, you know. Ono
can't know everything at -"
"Fourteon," said Hester. "Fourteen is not so very young, and girls
are older than buys. Perhaps you nro
thinking that a boy of fourteen is uot
much? That iB very true, bnt it ia
dillereut with me. Mother is not
strong. I have to do most of tho settling, not to tiro her. What I think
ia always what will be the best—"
"For her? Tu bo aure," said Edward; "ao you must make up your
mind to be civil to everybody, and not
to quarrel/'
"Quarrel! I novor quarrel. 1
would not for tho world; it is so childish."
"I don't think 1 shall find my flower
this morning," ho Baid. "I will walk
homo with you if you will lut mo, and
wo can talk about everything. Havo
you seen the other people whu live in
the YuVlionry? Some of them will
amuse you. There are two uid ladies
—Veruons, like tho rest of us."
"Ia it Cousin Catherine that has
brought us all here I"
"AH of us. She is not a person to
be made light of, you see."
"And why did sho bring you? Were
you poor? Had you no father, like
me? Ia she fond of yuu that she has
you to livo in her house? Do you love
hor?" aaid Hester, fixing her large,
curioua eyes on the young man's face.
He laughed. "Where am 1 to bo
gin?" he said. "I have a father and
mothor, little emiain. They arc not
poor precisely, bnt neither are they
rich. I can't tell you whether Aunt
Catherine is fond of me. Sho brought
me hern to wjrk in the bank; tho
bank ia everybody's lirat thought:
lhat must bo kopt up wliatover fails;
and sho was so good as to think I
would do. lt was a great advancement for me. If I had stayed at
homo I should havo had to struggle
for something to do along with all the
other young men. And there are a
groat many young men in the world,
and not so much for them to do as
could bo wished. Have I satisfied
you now?"
"There is one question you have not
answered," said Heater. "Do you
luvo her? that is tho chief thing I wnnt
to know."
"Lovo hor? Como, you must not
go into mctnphyBic3. I liko hor very
much. Aunts are excellent things.
I havo a great respect for her. Won't
that do?"
"I looked at her lost night," said
Hester. "I got hor hy heart. I shall
either love her or hate her, I have not
made up iny mind which."
"Thero ia aumething between these
violent sentiments," said Edward; "at
least, I hopo so. Ymi must not hate
mo."
"Oh, you!" said Hester, with friend
ly contempt; "that is a different thing
altogether. You aro not of any conso-
ijuence. I think I liko you, but you
may bo sure I shall never hate you;
why ahould II Yuu can't do anything
to me, But whan thero is one that is
— that is—well, almost like Ood, you
know—" said tho girl, dropping har
voico reverentially. "It is astonishing, is it not, that one should be so
much moro powerful than others? Thov
ttay in France that men are ail equal,
but how can that bu when Cousin
Catherine— What givim Iny no much
power?"
"That is all a fallacy about men
boing equal, You will see through it
whon you got older,"" said Edward,
with gontlo superiority. Ho had
laughed at hor cavalier mention of
himself, but he was very willing tn
instruct this sulf-opinioncd young person. "You are mixing up circumstances and principles," he added.
"It is circumstances which make Aunt
Catherine powerful; childly became
alio is rich—rich and kind; very kind
in hor wny; always ready to do a char
itablo notion."
The color wavored in Hester's cheek,
"We don't want charity," sho said,
and after this walked on vory stately,
holding hor head high. The Vernon-
ry, toward which they woro going, hnd
begun to wake up, Smoko was rising
up into lhe clear air ftomono or two
of the chimneys; a few blinds had
been drawn up; a gardener, with his
wheelbarrow and his scythe, stood in
the gate, throwing Iiih shadow across
the garden. Edward Vernon thought
there was in the air a vogue perfume
from the cups of toa that were being
carried about in all directions to tho
bedsides of tho inhabitants. The
peoplo in tho Yeruonry were all elderly; they woro all fond of their little
comforts. They liked to open their
eyes upon the world through the refreshing vapor of those oarly cups.
All elderly—all, except this impersonation of freshness und youth. What
wub she to do in such a place, amid
tho retired and declining, with energy
enough for every activo employment,
and a restless, high, youthful apirit ?
Poor girl! she would have sume bittor
lessons to learn. Edward, though he
had won the heart of his powerful relation by his domestic character and
evident preference for her socioty, had
not beeu able to divest himself of a
certain grudge against tho author of
his good fortune. Tho feeling which
Hester expressed so innocently waa iu
his mind in a more serious form.
When they reached tho gate, Hester
stoppod short.
"You muat not como in now," she
said, in her peremptory tones, "for
mother is n.it up yet. I must go and
make hor collee before she gets up. I
will make you somo, after dinner, if
you liko. You cannot make coffee iu
England, can you ?"
"No more than wo can make tho
sun shine," said Edward, with a smile.
"I shall certainly come for my collee
in tho evening. I may be of some use
to you as your dithculties increase;
but I should like to know your name,
and what I am to call you f"
"Ave you suro that our difficulties
will increase/" said Hester, aghast,
opening her mouth as well as her largo
oyes.
"Unless you know how to deal with
them. I shall set up a series of lectures on fino manners and deportment."
Hester's counteiiaticu flamed upon
him with mingled resentment and
shame.
"Do you think mo a savage ?" she
said. "I—do you know I have beon
brought up in France? It is m England that there aro no manners, no
politeness.".
"And no sunshine," aaid Edward,
with a laugh. Thus saying he took off
hia hat with a littlo exaggeration of
respect, and waving hia hand to hor,
turned away. If Heater hud been
older, she would have known that tu
stand and look after him was not
according to any code. But nt fourteen the soul is bold and scorns conventional rule. Sho stood, shading
her eyes with her hand, watching him
aa he walked along; atill the only
figure that broke the blaze and tho
silence of the morning. It was true,
ns she had Baid, thnt he was net of any
consequence, Perhaps thut was why
ahe felt quite at her ease in respect to
him, and, on the whole, approved of
him as i\ pleasant feature in the new
life.
In the morning, the inhabitants of
the Vomonry were to be seen a little
before or aftor noou, according to tho
season, appearing and disappearing iu
the immediate neighborhood of tlieir
houso. It was a little community perfectly at leisure, called out by no work
in the morning, returning with no
more punctuality than pleased them.
Aa a matter of fact thoy wero exceedingly punctual, coming and going us
by clockwork, supporting their otherwise limp existence by a severe mechanism of rule. Those who have least
to do are often most rigorous in thus
measuring thomselvo3 out; it gives a
certain sense of something real in their
lives. It wos a little after eleven
when Mr. Mildway Vernon appeared.
His residence was in the west wing,
nearest to the pool and tho trees, and
he thought it was probably owing to
thu proximity of the water that his
rheumatism troubled him so much in
winter. It did not trouble him at this
fine season, but ho had the habit of
loaning on his stick and talking in a
querulous voice. Ue camo out with
his newspaper to a littio summer-house
whero tho heat was tempered by the
foliage of a great limo. Ho had vory
good taste; he liked the flicker of the
sunshine which came through these
green, silken leaves, and the shelter
was very grateful whon tho sun wus
hot, The worst of it wns that the
summer-house was not in hia portion
of tho common grounds, aud tho ladies
to whom it ought to havo belonged,
and to whom it was so convenient to
do their work in, resented his constant
presence. In winter he seated himself
always on a sunny bench which was in
front of tho windows now belonging to
Mrs. John, but she was not yet aware
of thia peculiarity. Tho Miss Vernon*
Bidgwaya occupied the space between
Mr. Mild way's houso and Mrs. John's.
They were not in tho direct line, und
they felt that they were treated accordingly, tho best of everything being
appropriated to those whom Catherine
Vernon, who was so proud of hor
name, considered nearest to the family
stock. These ladies were convinced
that tho blood of the Kidgwnya had
much enriched tho liquid that meandered through the veins of the Veruons; but in Catherine Vernon's presence they kept silence as to this belief.
The rooms in thu wings woro much thu
best, they thought, and they had oven
proposed an exchange to Mr. Mildmny
when he coinplaiued of being so close
to the pool. But hu hnd only grinned,
and had not accepted; ho knew better.
Of course he would have grumbled if
hu had beeu lodged in Windsor Castle,
tho ladies said; but he know vory well
in his heart that hu had boon preferred
to tho best place. On tho other side
of tho house, toward the road, lived
Mrs. Reginald Vernon, the young
widow of nn oflicer, with hor four
children, of whom everybody complained, and an old couple, in reality
not Veruons at all, but relations of
Catherine's mother, who were looked
down upon by the entire community,
und had clearly no business in the
Vernonry. The old gentleman, Captain Morgan, had been iu tho navy,
nnd therefore ought to have been the
nqual to auy ono. But tho people on
the road-side kept themselves vory
much to themselves; the aristocracy
lived on the garden front. When Mrs.
John Vernon made hor appearance in
her deep mourning, thore was a great
deal of excitement, about Uio place.
Mr. Mildmay put down his paper and
came out, bowing, to the door of tho
summer-house,
"Between relations I tht not know
if any ceremony of introduction is
necessary," ho said. ' It givos mo
great ploasuro to welcome ymi back to
England. Poor John and I woro once
great friends. I hopo you will allow
mo to consider myself at once an old
acquaintance."
"Oh, how thankful I shall be for
somo one to speak tu!" cried Mrs.
John. "Though my family wero of
this couiiV.', I seem to havu lost sight
of every o.it that used to knuw me, A
great many changes happen when miu
fins been thirty years away."
