A Board or Trade.
As will be seen by ': e'fei'once to
our third page, tlie preliminary steps
for forming a Eotiul of Trade for
this part of British Columbia have
been taken. The movement has
been far too long delayed; but "bettor late than neve.-." Victo. ia lias
possessed a Hoard of Tiade for three
or four years past, and although its
jurisdiction is bounded by the city
limits, Vicloiia-like, it a"ogatesto
itself the bioad designation of "Tills
British Columbia Boaud op
Tkade"! Under this delusive title
it often assumes to speak and act in
the name and on behalf of the whole
province, and it is set. cely to bo
wonde-fld at that what it says and
does is not always in hi... .11011 v with
the title wishes and iuCeresls. of
other comQiurities. Mo'« than
once it has become onr doty to point
out where ies representations and
recommendations have been in direct opposition to the wishes and
interests of this section. Under any
circumstances it would have been
the true policy to establish a Bonrd
of Trade, in 01 der to tho p, oj.er regu
lation and f.roteclibn of the com
uiercial interests of this part of the
jirovii.ee. Undor the peculiar ci
nuuistances abovo adverted to, it became necesn't, y us a ineasiiro of self-
protection against the glaring presumption and insidious nssnuUs ol
an organization acting in our name
and in some iu'ipoi tant respects bus
tile to the commercial interests of
this section. It will be unnecessary
t6 detail tho va- ions mutters fulling
withirg tho purview of a Board of
Trade constituted undor the Do.
'minion Act. The more itnpoitaut
inatlers to which the New Westminster Board will be immediately
called upon to addiess itself will be
thoso bearing upon the navigation of
the Lower Fraser, and tbo proper
regulation of shipping and cominc.ee
in tho various poi is on the river and
Billiard Inlet. To put an end lo
All lhe misupprohorsion and humbug
purposely and most industriously
created respecting tho entrance to
the river und to ei lend tbe ocean
itiitil service to this po-1 will be
among its first and roost important
duties. Vo.y much of the difficulty
hitllorto experienced in dealing with
these matters has doubtless ai isen
from the fact that, while wo have
bad 110 pi opcrly organized medium
through which to speak, others have
beeu ullowod to speak in our name
ind sometimes lo say things very
misleading and p. (-judicial to our interests. As the g.-o.tt 1 ai'way in
. terests develop, theso subjects and
eoiisinetaiiotis ac(piiio cumulative
importuned, and it must bo felt by
every thoughtful person that stops
for putting an end to so unsatisfactory a condition of d.Tui.s have been
taken none too soon,
Auxiliary Railways.
Somo weeks ago it was stated
that Mr. £. Brown bf this city was
in coiiiniMi.iratioii with a powerful
syndicate of American capitalists
pioposing to extend the American
railway system to our holders and
seeking information and encouragement for forming a connection with
our own railway system bo.o. By
a recent mail Mr; Brown 1 oceivod a
communication of a very encouraging character from the leprescnlative
of the syndicate at Washington. Mr.
Brown is at thu sumo time corresponding with tho Minister of Hallways upon the subject. Tlio idea
obtains iuceitaiu quarters that there
will be a disposition on tho part of
the Canadian Pacific Ituilwny Company to oppose any movement of
the kind. It is by no menus impossible that thoy may themselves
desire Id control any lines' connect-
itish Columbian.

NUMBER 28
ing the two groat railway systems
of the two countries; but it is clearly the interest of the Company that
such a connection should bo established. The very (decided advantages possessed by tlio Canadian Pacific leave it nothing to fear from
such a connection. It would enable
tlio Canadian roadfto tap the tiade
ol Puget Sound Und make tho
No< tbc<*n Pacific Sail way a most
useful aiixilia'y insfead of a dangerous rival, as some appear to appie-
heni,. To Now Westminster the
question is one of sup-emu importance. This oity %<m\d become the
centre of two g'eat railway systems,
and its commercial supremacy in
the no-Ik Pacific would thus be
assu'ed beyond all petadventuve.
W»eUie-'. tbo-efo-e, the connecting
link is built by tho Canadian Pacific
llnrlwav Company or by the capitalists above adverted to matte's com-
patatively little. To secure its ea'-'y
.con&i.-uction is the g-*ai'd object of
this community—of this province,
iu fuc!., and it is to be hoped that
neither tbe Canadian Paciiic Railway Company nor tlio Canadian
Go .•on incut wi'l inte*poso the
slrjbtesb obstacle, in the way of its
edtOy accomplishment. H is p"enable tlmt application will bo made
both to tbe P'ovii.''",;■.' ami Dominion

The object of Sir Hii*;li Allan's visit
io tho North-West hu*- no'-, been revealed, that ia to say if ho hud any
richer object limn ploiisiiro-seoking.
Report connects his name with (he
new Hudson Buy scheme, but ,liis I
doubt. Tho -Snu gives iho following
as tlie opinion of tho <*rr***l*, ship-owner,
who was interviewed by a reporter:—
"Tlie extent of legitimate mercantile
business iu Winnipeg he considers
equul to that of any oity in Ontario
except Toronto, and ho predicts that
in less 'ban throe years iU commerce
wil! he equal io if uot greater than
that of Toronto. From iho rapid progress of the cii'y during the last year
Sir Ilii'rh is fully confident that within
three years Winnipeg will have at least
00,000 inhabitants, and that before
fivo years am over it will bo the largest
city in ihu Dominion. His opinion is
that manufactories must rapidly increase bore in order to allow surrounding towis nml settlements to tret tlieir
supplies direct from the metropolis.
So confident is Sir Hugh Allan of the
future prospecs* of the city and country, that ibis fall he intends establishing branches of two factories in which
ho is largely injeresLod. One will be a
branch of a well-known sewing*
machine factory, and the oiher will
he a branch of a clock factory iu which
ho is also in'crested. These two factories will bring a largo number of
arit.wis and 'heir families to tho city.
Sir Hugh has no doubis of ihe great
future iu si ore for Manitoba nnd tho
North-West. At Emerson, Sir Hugh,
in reply io remarks made liy President
Chambers, of the Board of Trade,
made an ii*!ercB'iiig speech, in which
he predicted a bright filiate for tho
North-West, and gave it as his opinion
that it would not bo vory many decades
before this section of the Dominion
would hold i ho balance of power and
dictate to the rest of the wmnlry."
The people nre all sanguine of Uio
future of Now Canada, aud it is worthy
of uotice lhat distinguished visitors are
even more enthusiastic than ourselves,
Surely under such conditions there can
be no such word as fail in store for us,
—Winnipeg Correspondence,
liiinO L:tw Worms In Scotland.
The movement for the reform of the
laud laws is gaining steadily in Scotland, and in England the old system
of forming clubs to agitate the repeal
of obnoxious institutions has been revived, and is actively progressing. A
short timo ago a deputation representing no fower than 7,000 Scotch fanners called on Mr, Gladstone to urge
the necessity for a comprehensive reform of the hind laws. What they
especially asked was somo menus of
securing compensation to tho tenant
for real Improvement a mado. The demand was sanctioned by resolutions
adopted at a joint meeting of tho English and Scotch alliances. Tlio resolutions recommended that tbe value of
improvements shoiTld be estimated on
tho increased value of the rentals.
This plan, which is found to work well
in somo cases, goes all wrong in others,
as where the value of rentals is found
to havo decreased, notwithstanding improvements mnde. Mr; Gladstone ad
milled the justice of the claim for compensation, and also acknowledged that
llio principle of representation should
be introduced into county government,
and that the law of entail should be
dealt with. In tho present condition
of mailers iu parliament, however, tie
could hold out no prosper.!, of dealing
with those questions till after pending
muasures wove disposed of, The.deputation, therefore, gained little boyou-t
a reiteration of opinions which the
premier has previously uttered. The
onions, however, ' point to n not
vory distant movement upon the law
of entail and other radical measures
against the landed abuses common to
the whole Empire.

Ciilncse Labor.
The lirst ilrnft of tlio Victoria
Corporation Address to His Excellency the Governor-General contained n passage deprecatory >J tbe presence of Chinese nntl their iiillnonce
upon the labor market of this country. It was, perhaps, not in the best
of taste to thrust that unsavory subject "under the vice-regal nose hi nn
address of welcome, It is asserted
tliat the passage was eliminated at
tho request of (Jul, De Win ten. In
replying to the Victoria Corporation
address (sans tlie anti-Chinese passage)- His Excellency, doubtless Having that passage still present to his
mind, took occasion to indulge in a
hit at popular opinion on the subject. Referring to the gigantic railway works in which we are engaged,
ho is reported to have said:—
''Meantime lot mo entreat yon to
throw no obsaicle in your own advance. [Just here tbo English fo
doubtless the reporter's, not His Excellency's.] You havo a very formidable competition organized by our
friends to tho south. Tho Northern
Prcific Railroad is being constructed
with an energy and success to which I
was myself last year an admiring witness. TJtdess you welcome all labor,
no matter whence it comes, for tho development of your communications, you
will be distanced in tho race, nnd to
your neighbors and not to you will fall
the prize due to a sensible provision of
the position.
Now, with every possiblo respect
for His Excellency's opinion on this
•subject, wo still venture to suggest
tbat a cavoitil looking under tbe surface might lend to the conclusion
tbat it may not bo our true wisdom
to "welcome all labor, no matter
wher-ce it conies." It would sceui
■almost a sufficient answer to refer to
the fact that the Chinese labor problem has already been solved, and
mo3t effectually solved, by our powerful neighbors to the south. After
a thorough trial and with a unanimity seldom equalled, they havo leached the definite conclusion that Chinese labor (which is slave labor) is
an unmitigated curse! They have
clone more. Tbey have succeeded in
convincing the great national councils of the correctness of thoir conclusions, and the practical result is
tho application of a very drastic
remedy—tho absolute prohibition of
Chinese immigration. For us to en
ter into an argument for the purpose
of proving that Chinese labor in this
country is an evil would, in the
light of tho above stated facts, appear to be a work of supererogation.
The conditions on the south of. tho
49th parallel of latitude are not so
different to tliose on tbe north as to
wake what is n curse on one side a
blessing on the other. But thero is
no need to rely upon that class of
evidence. The people of British
Columbia have sense enough nnd
have had experience enough to enable them to form intelligent conclusions on tho subject, without the
slightest reference to tlieir neighbors.
They know that tho Chinese do not,
in any sense, constitute a desirable
class of population—that thoy tend
to pollute the moral atmosphere*
that they never can become desirable
citizens in any sense; that they destroy the labor market for others,
and that they impoverish the conn-
try by draining all or nearly all their
earnings out of ifc. Why, these poople, or tlie great bulk of them, are,
fer ail practical purposes, slavos,
brought hero by wealthy firms of
their own countrymen. They live
for the most part as no freo white
people could or would live, and,
therefore, free white labor cannot
reasonably bo expected to compote
with thom. While yielding to none,
not even to the C4overnor-General
.himself, in appreciating tbo mngni
tude of the railway works and tho
importance of tbe utmost possiblo
expedition in their completion, we
do not hesitate to clmllenge the
Roundness of the doctrine tbat it is
our true wisdom to "welcome all
labor, no matter whence ifc comes."
We are free to admit tiiafe, in conso-
quonce of want of prevision and neglect of duty on the part of the Bo-
minion and Provincial Governments, nnd, perhaps we may add,
want of foresight on tho part of tho
contractors too, the present condition
of affairs'is such ns to give at least
tbe appearance of necessity to "wel
come all labor, no matter whence it
comes,"—bub that lamentable condition cannot alter fundamental principles—cannot make right wrong, or
wrong right. The fact still remains
that the Chinese constitute an ■undesirable population, that Chinese labor
is a curse, and that it is tho duty of
both Governments and people to
grapple manfully with the evil and
apply the only true remedy—exclusion of Chinese and introduction of
men and women of our own race and
religion—a population that will,while
building tbe railway, build up a
British nation of prosperous communities on the shores of the north
Pacific. It is by such a policy that
Canada shall most effectually win in
the race of empire. The Canadian
Pacific Railway has other and even
more important duties thnn that of
supplying a "short, cut" for the carrying trade between Europe and Asia.
However grand that theory may
look it is undoubtedly the great colonizing power of the enterprise that
chiefly commen'ds it to the good sense
of the Dominion; and in older to
make it the powerful factor it should
bo in peopling the vast regions it is
to op&h up aud consolidnto it appears
to us to be of the very first importance that tho labor should be performed by those who shall become
the settlors,—thus retaining in the
countiy for the purpose of building
ifc up and developing its resources
tho millions taken from" the pockets
of Canadian tax-paye's. If Louies
of Mongolian slaves are brought in
to do  the work and carry away all
these  ml'Jions well, tho country
shall havo its railway; but nothing
mo-'e! The grand opportunity of
peopling its vast plains and fertile
valleys will have been missed.
Tift Hetlakailab War.
It would appear that the Bishop
of Caledonia has had printed and
secretly civc.ilated a pamphlet upon
the Metlakatlah rupture, in the
course of whicli it is said that Mr.
Duncan nnd Senator Macdonald
come iu for pretty rough handling.
The Senator's choler rises thereat,
su tl he rushes into print thusly:—
"It has come to my ears that the
Bishop of Caledonia has had a secret
pamphlet printed and privately circulated, reflecting on Mr. Duncan and
myself in the most malicious, low-
minded, immoral and unscrupulously
truthless manner. *.-*** * If this
pamphlet contains iho truth, what bus
ho to fear iu making it public? lt
would be the moat effectual way of at-,
laining his object, viz., damaging my
reputation.' I dare and challenge-the
Bishop of Caledonia to publish his low-
.minded, libellous pamphlet, and Llio
sooner he docs it the better, for lot
him rest assured that bo cannot keop
it a secret. 'Murder will out,' and destroying a man's fair name behind his
back is on it par with murder."'
Now, if a bishop will be guilty of
that with which he of Caledonia is
here charged, we see no reason why
a layman should not take him by
tho throat. But it occurs to us to ask
whether the irate Senator 1ms read
or really knows the contents of the
pamphlet. Ono might he led from
the wording of his intemperate letter
to conclude that he has not; and if
he has not, wc cannot help thinking
that ho has acted rashly in levelling
such denunciations at His Lordship.
Without any desire to mix in an
ecclesiastical embroilment, the occurrence of which every right-thinking
person must; deeply regret, we may
bo permitted to express the opinion
that Bishop Ridley cannot be held
altogether blameless, in the first instance ab least. Many years' acquaintance with Mr. Duncan and bis
most self-denying and" singularly successful work lead us irresistibly to
the conclusion that a more judicious,
forbearing and Christian course on
the part of the Bishop might have
led to different and less lamentable
results.

The e Kor'aiui.ient given at iho Co.*-
vont of St. Ann on Thursday evening
was a vory pleasant affair, Tho attendance was lar^e, eoniplo'oly filling every
space available for either sitting or
sculling. The programme was vory
Ion;;, ombraoiiig no less than il pieces,
and it may fairly bo accepted as a compliment when wo say that nearly all
the large uudienco sift or stood for over
threo hours until it had boon completed. To notice each number would
occupy moro space than wo havo at our
disposal, and wo shall content ourselves with referring to sumo of tho
most interesting pieces. Mrs. Win.
Moresby's two songs wero well rendered and evidently appreciated by ihe
audience. Mr. W, 11. Keary also sang
twice, and was received with tho appreciation which always greets his performances' on the concert platform.
We doubt if there aro any male voices
iu British Columbia belter than Mr.
Keary's. His last piece was comic,
and ho appeared In costume, and retired amid thunders of applause Miss
Wiso, a mile girl of about 10 years,
sang, iu costume, a very affecting song,
and did it f**.cuodingly woll. Hor performance was certainly onu of the most
interesting features of the entertainment. The trio (piano, violin ami cornet) by Mr. and Mra. Keary and Mt.
Turnbull was well executed. Tho Cal-
'sthenic March wus very much admired, aud the chorus, "Through the
Forest Trees," was one of tho best
things of the ovoiing, Tho entire
company, dressed in while, stood
among evergreens and shrubbery, and
sang a bird chorus, accompanied by nn
excellent imitation of tho twittering of
birds. The efl'ect wus yood aud so was
the singing. Thore woro a largo number of tableau**, pomo of which were
exceedingly pretty; nnd the drama of
"Thu Country Aunt's Visit1' afforded
both amusement and instruction. Tlio
performance closed at 10:45, with tho
National Anlh'oiu.
Pile O'flones.
As was to havo boon orcpocted, that
lively bird Grip goes for tho Pile of
Bonos in fine stylo. It represents the
Marquis of Lorno in the act of transforming a rather repulsive looking
heap of bones into a city hy pouring
upon it perfume* labelled "llejjina,"
from a bottle, whilo Sir Charles Tupper
stands opposite, holding his nose and
asking, "Doesn't your Excellency detect a bad odor about this Pile of
Bones ?'" Iu tho distance may bo seen
Governor Dewdiiey, with his back
turned, and showing a disposition to
take his departure, tho odor of the pilo
evidently boing too much for him. A
siV'U post at one sido points tho direction "To Fort Q'Appello, the natural
capital of Assiniboia."

Trade and Commerce.
A mooting was hold in the Byiiok
Hall ou Wednesday evening for the
purpose of considering the advisability
Of organizing a Board of Trade. E.
Brown, Esq., was unanimously voted
to tho Chair and T. J. Trapp, Esq. to
tho Secretary ship. The Chairman having in a few appropriate remarks, stated the object of the met.'ting and the
importance of the movement, some
discussion arose about tha scope of
jurisdiction, when it was ultimately
decided that it would bo udvinablo to
include the district jas established for
judicial purposes, such being tho
bounds .proscribed by tho Act, in the
event of extending beyond tho city
limits,
It was unanimously
lleooked, That a Hoard of Trade bo
formed for tho District, to bo dosig-
nated The Now Westminster Board of
Trade. _
It was also
lierohed, That a Committee of fivo,
viz., E. Brown, H. V. Edmonds, J. A,
U. Homer, M. P., John Hendry, and
John Robson, M. P. P., bo appointed
for tho purpose of taking the necessary
steps for organization and incorporation under the Act, Vie, 'JO, Chap. 31.
Aftor somo conversation loading to
tho understanding that the Committeo
would seek to include among the
charter members prominent men iu
each of the outlying localities within
the District, tho meeting was adjourned, subject to tho call of the Chairman.
Nanaimo Deputation,
According to appointment. M. Bate,
Esq., Mayor of Nanaimo, Win, Raybould, Esq., M. P. P , and Messrs. A.
Mayer and Ceo. Thompson, proceeded
to tho Government House on Thursday morning, and wore vory cordially
received by His Excellency, the Cov-
ernor-Uouural.
A general conversation ensued, in
whicli His Excellency stated that ho
wished to proceed to Kamloops during
Ihe lilie weather, and aftor liis return
on tho 7th or 8th proximo, he would
pay ii visit to Nanaimo and the East
Coast. Owing to tho delicate stato of
the health nf iho Princess Louise, Her
Highness would remain in Victoria, iu
the hopo that rust would increase heist re ngth.
His Excellency alluded to tho desirability of having the Island Railway
constructed, and inquired if Sir. Dunsmuir was likely to renew Ins of l'er to
construct tliu lino. Neither of the gentlemen were in a position to give Mis
Excellency any information as to tho
intentions of Mr. Dunsmuir in reference to the Island lino.
His Excellency forcibly admitted the
hardships imposed on the Vancouver
Island Coal Industry by tho present
oust-'ill's tariir, but claimed that tho
completion of the transcontinental
railway would ameliorate the difficulty,
and at tlie prosont unprecedented rate
of construction it would only bo a few
years beforo through rail communication would bo. established from the
Pacific seaboard to the Atlantic.
Tho deputation thon withdrew, very
well pleased with the a-table reception
accorded them by iho noble Marquis.

We beg to call the attention of the
trade ami the public to the well-known
quality and elegance of finish of onr
Gold.. Cases, guaranteed by us to lie of
eightseu karat Cold, U. S. Mint assayj
or ot fourteen karat Cold, as mny bo
stumped, aiul also .to our mode of selUiig
the Biune, charging only for the Actual
Wkicut .of the gold used, and not tor
the base metal comprisco in springs, key
pipes, filling of crown, otc. To Ulustraio
which a tag accompanies each quo of our
Cold Cases, which plainly indicates not
only the gross weight of the ease, <ftut
also the Net weight of the gold.
In explanation of tho above *.re desire
to say that the old plan of charging for
tlie gross weight of the oasa, as if it were
all gold, worked well enough as long as
the inanufacturers were content with "the
amount of brass and steel actually ro
quired in its construction! but when the
business-was degraded into a contest as
to who should get the most base metal
into thu least quantity of gold and call it
a Gold case, then the time came when,
in the interest of dealers in American
Watches, it became ntvemry to adopt a
plan of selling, showing the buyer exactly how much Com) each case contained.
To avoid imposition, piu'chiisefsofWal'
tluun Watches will observe that every
genuine watch, whether gold or silver,
bears our trade mark on both case and
movement, Gold cases are stamped "A,
W. Co.;" and guarantee certificates accompany them. Silver cases are stainn-sd
"A. M. Watch Co,, Waltham, Mass.,
sterling silver," and are accompanied by
guarantee certificates, signed 11, E, Hoboing, treasurer. The name "Waltbam"
is plainly engraved upon all movements,
irrespective of either distinguishing
marks. Thii caution is rendered necessary by reason of the fact that our cases
are frequently separated from our movements, and put upon worthless movements of other makers and vice versa,
thus affectuig injuriouVly the performance of the watches, and vitiating our
guarantee, which is intended to cover
only oar complete watches wholly mado
by ns. It is necessary also, because it is
so notorious as to ho a public scandal
that there is great fraud iu tho metal
quality of both gold ami silver cases as
now generally sold. W-- have demon-
sti*ateu by frequent assays that many
gold and silver cases offered iu tlie market are 'debased from 10 to 20 per cent,
from tho quality they assume .to he.
This is a fraud upon the purchaser, and
accounts for the low price at which such
cased watches have been sold.-~-AMi:!:i-

Mons. Cessans claims to havo converted oxygon into ozone by tho direct
action of intouse light.
Tho estimate of tlio sun's temperature now most generally received is
that of Prof. Rosetti, of Padua, who
places it at about 18,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
A cast iron containing twelve per
cent, of silicon has been adopted by a
Gorman inventor for tho manufacture
of bottles, etc., tbat compound being
cupable, it is said, of resisting tho action of the strongest acids.
Tho medical officer of tho Mra expedition, Mr. W. H, Neale, expresses
the opinion that Arctic explorers may
escape scurvy by living on tha meat of
tho country—that is, walrus nnd bear
—oven without vegetables.
Tho observations upon tree-growth
in Mexico mado by Mons. Charnoy
tend to show that in damp tropical
climates the concentric rings, from
which the tree's ago is usually calculated, may form at tbo rate of ono a
month inr*toad of ono a year.
A picture representing tho judgement of Solomon has been unearthed
at Pompeii. Arcluuologists will doubtless regard this relic with peculiar interest, as it is reported to bo tho first
pisturo on a sacred subject that has
Wm'discovered in the buried cities.
Dr. Constantino Fahlborg recently
described to thu Gorman Technical
Society a new substance which ho estimates to possess from twenty to thirty
times the sweetness of cane sugar. In
chemical language tho new body would
be called "aohydrpsulphaminbenzoio
acid.".
A distinguished German pathologist,
Prof. Schmale, advises all who wish
to attain a long lifo to swallow daily
the juice of six or eight lemons. He
believes tbat tho citric acid will quickly

indefinitely preserve health,
Mons. Oamille Flammarion, the
French astronomer, endeavors to account for tho recent remarkable
changes which have appeared on the
surface of Mars by supposing that inundations and other movements of
great bodies of water are more extensive on that planet than on the earth.
A "bent equatorial" telescope, no
invention of Mons. Loowy, i3 now in
operation at the Paris Observatory.
The peculiarity of tbo instrument is
that, in consequence of the bonding
and the use of two reflecting mirrors,
the astronomer can observe all tho
celestial bodies without rising from his
table.
In un experiment described to lhe
French Academy by Mons. Bergeron,
a miniature imitation of the craters in
the moon is produced by sending a
current of hot air through a brass tube
into a mass of melted but gradually
cooling metolic alloy. Mons. Bcgoron
1 looks upon tho experiment as a suggestion of the manner in which tho
lunar orators may havo been formed.
A disastrous fire in a Sicily sulphur
mine had a very curious origin. A
rope hxpke when drawing a heavy
loaded wagon up an incline, and tho
rapid motion of tho wagon as it rushed
back into the mine developed heat
enough to inflame tho highly combustible ore. The firo spread so quickly
through the mine that thirteen workmen wore unable to escape, and many
others were injured.
Mr. W. H. Preeco, the electrician
of the British Post Oflico, has tried
the interesting experiment of telegraphing without the aid of wires
across tlie channel soparating tho Isle
of Wight from England. Large metal
plates were immersed in tho sea at opposite ends of tho Solent—-namely, at
Portsmouth and Rydo, separated by
six miles of water, and at Hurst Cns-
tlo and Sconce Point, with one mile of
channel separation. The Portsmouth
and Hurst Castle plates wero connected by a wire passing through Southampton, and the Ttydo ami Sconce
Point plates by a wire passing through
Newport, the crcuit boing completed
by the sea. Signals wero readily passed by the Morse system, but telephonic speech was impracticable.
Concerning electro-horticulture, Dr.
C. W. Siemens'in his address us President of tho British Association for the
Advancement of Science, stated that
ho had only to add to liis previously
recorded observations that wheat, barley, oats and other cereals sown in the
open air had shown a marked acceleration of growth undor thu Influence of
the electric light. This was not very
patent until tho end of February, when
with ths first appearance of mild
Weather the plants under the influence
of an eloctric lamp of 4,000 candle
power, placed about sixteen feat above
the surface, developed with extreme
rapidity, so that by tho end of May
they stood four feet high, with the
ears in full bloom, whop tliose not undor tho influence of the lamp were less
than two feet in height, aud showed
no sign of the ear.
The Boy's Estimate of n Mother's Work.
"My mother gets mc up, builds tho
firo and gets my breakfast, and sends
me off,''said a bright youth. 'Then
•he gets iny fathor up nnd gets his
bwaMasfc, and sends him off. Than
she j'tvws tho othor children their
breakfast and sends thom to school;
and then she and tho baby have their
breakfast."
"How old is tho baby?" asked the
reporter.
"Oh, she is most two, but she can
talk and walk with any of uo."
"Are you well paid i"
"I get two dollars a week, and my
father gets two dollars a day."
"How much does your mother got*';
With a bewildered look, the buy
said:
"Mother? Why, sho don't work
for anybody."
"I thought you snid she worked for
oil of you."
"Oh, yos; for ns she dnos. But
thoro ftfr/t any money into it."

Tlie Maslier italicfi.
Thoro were plenty of seats in the
car, but as ho walked down the aisle
hu looked sharply to tho right and left
until ho roached a protty girl who was
sitting alone. *
"Kent engaged miss?" ho asked
with a knowing wink.
"No-no, sir," stammered tho girl
looking around in dismay.
Down ho plunged nnd braced himself for the campaign. Ha was a regular passenger and held his commutation ticket in liis hand,
"Shall I upon—-1"
"Tickets!" roared the conductor
who had watched him from afar.
Tlio regular pnasonger smiled sweet'
ly on the pretty girl and put up Iiii
pasteboard, out of which two aides
were promptly snipped.
"Tickets!"
"Hold on!" protested the regular
passenger, "you punched this twice.
This lady isn't with me!"
"Sorry," replied the conductor, "but
ymi walked in, sat down and went lo
work on tbe regular married style.
Supposed, of course, it was your wife.
Too late now; tako a vacant seat next
time.    Tickets!"
And the passengers went to tho conductor and asked him lo drink and offered him cigars, and brought out the
train boy for him.
"I knew they weren't married," said
he, as he squinted at a flask of extra
prime. "I've seen hiin before, but
this in the first time it cost him a couple of dollars to play it."
"Do you know who tho lady is?"
asked an inquisite man,
''MyVvife, gentlemen," replied tho
conductor, aud even tlie flask chuckled
a merry "glug, glug" as he spoke.
A Man or Bullets.
As I sat on tho hotel steps at Dal-
ton, Ga., talking wiih a drummer from
Cincinnati, the landlord came out and
asked us if wo wanted to soe a man
who was carrying six bullets about
with him. Of course we did, and we
woro walked down to tho oilier ond of
iho verrandah and introduced to Col.
Beach. I was going to approach him
slowly and gracefully, but the drummer rushed right up to him with:
"So you are carrying about six bullets with you, eh '"
"Yes, sir."
"Do they pain you much?"
"Oh, no."
"Lands alive; but I don't see how
you lived through it. How many battles were you in?"
"Eighteen."
"Did you get all theso bullets at
onco ?"
"Yes, all nt once."
"Well, I never heard tho
liko of itl Colonel, I don't want to
bu impudent—but—but "
"You want to "know where they are
locafed V
"Exactly—exactly."
"I'm carrying 'em in this pocket today," was the quiet reply, as he fished
down and brought tip six old bullets
picked up oil' tho battle field.
It was a job put up on mo, but the
drummer trot in ahead, and. he was so
mad about it that ho wouldn't eat any
supper.—Detroit Fm Press,

A Boston paper has a new reporter
who is enterprising aud willing as
young men aro when they first begin
work iu "journalism," but who doesn't
yet know as much aa he probably will
at a later period of liis career. He
came in with the report of a public
meeting tho other day, in the course
of which ho stated that "Tho Hon.
Mr. So-and-so followed tbo previous
speaker with a few feeble remarks upon
the case under discussion." The oity
editor remonsfrated with tlie young
man, and was not appeased when the
reporter told hiin that the honorable
gentleman in question had himself said
when be first got upon his logs that all
ho could contribute to the debate
would bo a few feeble remarks. So
thu editor took up hia own pen and
changed tho reporter's manuscript so
that it read that "The Hon. Mr. So-
and-so then mado a few trenchant remarks upon the case iu point, which
he delivered in the eloquent and scholarly way which is characteristic of all
his public utterances," and having
achieved his feat with proficient easo
he sont tho reporter back to his desk.
And early the next morning Hon. Mr.
So-and-so sent his office-boy around
and bought fifty papera, whereas if the
reporter's original "copy" liad got in
tho composing room unchanged he
would probably havo come to the ojlico
in person with a club.
Tho Duko uf Edinburgh was recently
carried over tho Great Northern Rail-
wary from Loads to London, a distance
of ].80l miles, in threo hours, or at a
rate of sixty-two miles per hour. For
the distance made, that is tho best
time on record. The engine was of
tho "Jumbo" class, with driving
wheels eight feet in diameter. To accomplish ihis, the driving wheel must
have made '210 revolutions per minute,
or moro than 39,000 in three hours.
A Nkw C Ait At,.— It ia proposed to
construct a canal across the isthmus
which unites the Mull of Cuntyre,

would givo a direct passage from tho

only about £200,000, and at a preliminary mooting hold recently, the
Duko or Argyll presiding, a large portion of that sum wns subscribed. Tho
canal may bu looked upon already ns a
