Thero can lm no iloulrt tlmt a removal of trade restrictions between
the two countries, lying side Iry

The return to this city by the
Colon yesterday of Colonel Frank
G. Ward, until lately Superintendent of the Piuuyna Railroad, was
the first public notice of the fact
that the directors of tlio rond had.
just made a summary change in its
management, Reports have been
current for some time that all was
not as it should be, and it is now
known that Colonel Fred llivas of
Virginia was sent down on the Ilth
ult., with secret instructions to assume entire management. It is understood his arrival was a surprise
to the officials there and that the
superseding of Colonel Ward was
vory unexpected to him. — N. Y.

The United States imported from
Japan last year $15,000,000 worth
of goods and exported to Japan only
84,000,000. We bought from the
Japanese silks, teas, camphor, and
curios. We sold to them coal-oil,
canned goods, flour, and machinery,
Great Britain, on the other hand,
imported from Japan only $3,000,-
000 while her exports to Japan
amounted to $15,000;000, the principal item of whicli was cotton goods.
That is, we send our cotton to England to be manufactured there and
sold to the Japanese, and we use
the money puid to us by English
manufacturers for the raw cotton to
pay for the silks and tea which we
import from Japan. This illustrates
the eli'ect of the protective system
on foreign trade.—N. Y. Witness.
The Transatlantic fleet of steamers will within the next year be increased by half a dozen new'vessels)
tho most of which are now in process of construction. The tendency
in ship-building, as evinced by the
plans, for "these, is for greater safety
and speed. The width of most of
the new steamships is to be greater
than common. Until recently; the
usual rule for the length was ten
times the beam. One of the new
steamships is to be only eight times
the beam, but the Pocahontas, an
American vessel to run from Now.
port News, is to be fourteen times
the beam. She is expected to eclipse
everything for speed. The builders
predict three and one-half days
passage. The more conservative
view holds that four days will bo
required. A little over six days is
tho fastest record.
The Englishmen who celebrated
the Queen's jubilee in Faneuil hall
have organized a political body to
counteract the influence of the Irish
and have enrolled the names of 5,-
000 Englishmen and Scotchmen
scattered over Massachusetts. The
leading spirit thinks they will be
truckled to by the very men who
were so fierce against them at the
time of tlie celebration. Ho says
they will have a city and a State
committeo, and will work in a systematic manner, hunting up British residents, getting them naturalized and seeing that they vote
right. They will send out 80,000
circulars and will soon hold a mass
meeting. He thinks tho movement
will spread throughout tho country
and become an important factor in
national politics. There are, however, three obstacles which he
seems to overlook: the Englishmen
in the country are few in number,

—Buffalo Courier.
The example of General Boulanger may have the vicious eli'ect of
reviving the waning popularity of
duelling in the French army. Napoleon is credited with saying that
duolling was a good thing since it
multiplied the chances of promotion
and kept tho officers in buouant
spirits. The present idol of the
army, who, when ho was War Minister, did much to restore a feeling
of esprit de corps among the officers,
as well as to make the private soldiers more comfortable by giving
them better bells and meals and
more loisuro, may take the same
cynical view of duelling. He may
also be influenced by the popularity
of the practice in the German army.
Duelling in the French army, however, will havo to be more democratic in its codo than it is at Berlin. A German officer is forbidden
to cross swonls or exchange pistol
shots with a tradesman. Under
the Republic; with its traditions of
equality and fraternity, no restric
tions of this sort can be jut upon
the line old aristocratic recreation of
trying to kill a man and a brother.

Till! MNAMA irUll,
" New Yohk, Aug. 15.-At; tlie association for the advancement of
science, this afternoon, Commander
Taylor, of tho C. S. navy, read a paper
upon "Tho Question of Isthmian
Transit." Among other things he said
that the debt of the Panama Canal Co.
is now about $360,000,000, and its interest and other fixed charges is nearly
$20,000,000 annually. Less than a
fifth of the work has becu done, and
and the great difficulty is yet to be at*
tempted. The ship railway project at
Tehauntepec promised to be' as disastrous as the Panama Canal. Captain
Ead's enthusiasm, Commander Taylor
feared, would lead many credulous
persons to pin their conGdenoe to what
seems to be an unworthy venture.
The Nicaurauga Canal would not be
affected by it, as it was entirely without their, limits. The opening of the
canal would reveal channels of trade
not now recognized. Few persons
realize how near New York is to Chili
and Peru, or what close neighbors
New Orleans and Callao would be were
there a canal through Nicaurauga. The
canal must be neutral. If we some
day feel that we must take a part in
helping Nicaurauga and Costa Rica to
sustain their noutrality, we will then
realize the need of controllinr the land
at Nicaurauga, which is of vast importance to our fleet as a strategic base.

ANOTHER RAILROAD ACCIDENT.
Washington, Aur. 17.—As the St.
Louis, Chicago & Cincinnati express
on the C. A O. road, duo here 6:20
a.m., was approaching the city at a
high rate of speed, the engineer found
the air brakes not working properly
and blew the whistle for ordinary
brakes, It was too late however tu
check tho momentum of the train and
it ran upon what is known as the "Y"
near tbe depot at the rate of 40 miles
an hour. The curve is very sharp and
tbe express car jumped Ihe track and
struck the signal tower. A general
wreck ensued and all the cars except
the sleepcra were badly smashed.
The only deaths reported up to 10 a.m.
are those of Hamilton Brosious, the
engineer cf the train who was scalded
to death and- two passengers. The
fireman wss badly scalded and 75 passengers seriously injured. The tele-
graph operator observed the derailment in time to escape by jumping
from the window of the structure.
His arms wero broken, but not otherwise injured. Great confusion prevails at the wreck and much difficulty
in learning the names of the dead and
wounded. Later investigations show
only one person killed outright, which
was thu engineer. Ten persons wore
injured seriously. Two nf them Chas.
Koch and William Buck of Cincinnati,
will probably die. The others are
Mrs. Augusta Barnes, Mrs. Chas.
Koch, Chas. Morrison, Fireman J. B.
Smith and Ed Lechmeyer, nil of Cin-
ciuciiiiiatij Frank Deraur, St. Louis;
Jas. Hoaly and W. Baxter, nl Washington.
PARTICULARS OP THE I'TE ITllISISU.
Washington, July 17 —A telegram
was received at the war department
that tho governor of Colorado hud requested Gon. Crook to assist tho civil
authorities in serving a process upon
the Uto bucks whu hnd been indicted
by the grand jury. Terry asked for
instructions for the guidance of himself and Crook iu the matter. A
telegram was sont in reply directing
him to hold the troops in readiness to
move nt a moment's notice. The war
department has received no special
information of the reported engagement between Colomw's baud and tlio
sheriffs posse, and tho military authorities do not feel authorized to call
upon tho troops tu assist the civil authorities in their efforts to arrest tho
Indians. In the event of the defeat
of tho posse, and Colorow's taking to
the war path, Gen. Crook, who is near
at hand, has full authority to take the
needful action to protect the people.
in '.iew of the absence of any official
information of the outbreak tho war
officials aro disposed to characterize
some of tho reports received as exaggerations.
NO NEWS AT THE LONDON OFFICE.
London, Aug. 17.—Neither tbe foreign ofllce nor the Emin Bay relief
committee has received any news in
regard to the alleged massaore of Stanley. The officials at the foreign offloe
aro surprised at the intelligence in
the despatch received by the Frenoh
government, and says if news of Stanley's death had been received at Zanzibar the British agent there had failed to notify his government.
WAR  BETWEEN THE O.  P. R. AND H. K.
V. R. R.
St. Pai'l, Aug. 17.—A special from
Winnipeg says: The Canadian Pacific
yesterday sent road building material
and a gang of 60 men over its southwestern branch to Morris, where work
was to begin to-night constructing a
spur line crossing the route of Uie
Red River Valloy road, thus obstructing the budding of the latter. An
opon conflict between the forces of the
upposing roads is expected to-day. Tlie
Red River people say they will put
their road through at all hazards.

sous of tlie prairie, and many of tlie
men have taken them up as visitors to
clubs. The result is that one meets
cowboys at garden parties, at Sunday
{denies and even at dances, and has to
isten, if not to their uncouth language, at least to their irritating drawl
aud their wild Western comments opon current event*. The presence of
theBo men would not be tolerated in
the salons of New York or Boston, yet
in England these adventurers an welcomed with open arms, flattered as
though they wero Bayards or Crich-
tons, permitted to flirt with the prettiest girls and married women, and
readily excused if, perchance, they
have to be sent home in a state of
semi-intoxication. Some women, who
ought to know better, hsve even begun to call upon them in their tents
and to sip afternoon tea with these
rough fellows.—London, Bat.

Our cotemporary of the Seattle
Post, utter referring to the umvol-
come reception which awaits American boodlers  who lice to Canada,
says:   "Why cannot un extradition
treaty bo negotiated so simple and
yet so pcrfoct that a fugitive who is
Hying   from   the   consequences   of
breaking the laws of one country
will, be quickly arrested and turned
over to justice by the authorities of
tho other?   Why cannot the simple
fact  that  the authorities of  one
country want a fugitivo for sonic-
thing other than a political oilenso
be  made  sufficient ground for his
extradition?   There is neither merit
nor reason in treaties which mako
ono country an asylum for the lawbreakers of tho other.    Why can
we  not  have sensible extradition
treatiosl   Why cannot tho authorities on both sides of tho boundary
show u disposition to aid iu bringing criminals to justice instead of a
disposition to shield them from justice and to turn their pursuers from
their  track?'     The reason is plain
enough.   Tho Canadian government
bas expressed its perfect, willingnpss
to subscribe to such a treaty, but
the government of the United States
refuses  to  reciprocate.    It is not
willing to subscribe to any treaty
under   which it might  be called
upon to surrender Irish dynamiters,
because it  is afraid of the Irish
vote in America!

So far no appreciable hitch has
orjeurred in the construction of Manitoba's disallowed railway. The
work goes on smoothly and expeditiously, und tho first payment is
said to have been made to the contractor. Tho statement we published yesterday, said to have been
made by Mr. VanHorne, leads to
the conclusion that the road will be
carried on to completion. Not long
ago Mr. (ioldwin Smith suggested
to tho people of Winnipeg that
they should lay their railway grievances before the privy council of
Great Britain and obtain from that
august body a statement of its
opinion on the extent to which the
constitution gives the veto power to
the federal authorities. The Winnipeg Sun says that this suggestion
has been received favorably by the
Manitoba government, and will
probably bo acted upon. It would
be of great value to obtain such an
opinion, if it could be obtained—
which seems to us somewhat doubtful under the circumstances. There
is a general impression that the
federal veto power ir really unlimited, and may, consequently, be exercised with respect to all provincial legislation. But this does not
seem to bare been the intention of
the framers of the constitution,
and it is possible that legislation
looking to the curtailment of that
power may be found necessary in
the interest of the Dominion.
The Victoria Times of Saturday
and the Vancouver Herald of Monday have editorial articles commenting upon the appointment of Mr.
Fagan as Indian agent for tbe
north-west. In the Vancouver
News also one or two little paragraphs appeared some time ago on
the same subject. So far as any
public notice has been taken of the
appointment, it has been universally
condemned. The ground of thiS
condemnation is twofold. First, it
is objected that Mr. Fagan has had
no opportunity of making himself
acquainted with the language and
manners of the Indians, both of
whioh are essential to the success of
- an Indian agent In the second
place it has been claimed that Mr.
Fagan, being a Catholic, ought not
to be appointed to administer tho
affairs of Indians who aro all Protestant But Mr. Fagan himself
denies that he is unacquainted with
the language or manners of the natives. He olaims to be able to talk
Chinook, and that his training is
suoh as to qualify him in a special
way for the duties of the office to
which he has been appointed. We
have expressed no opinion on this
appointment, or on any appointment made by our present represen-
w.:_~-u—-rt.-,.\A.m.-.\ .. ™
Columbian waa the only newspaper
in British Columbia that opposed
Mr. Ohisholm's election; but since
the electors thought fit to entrust
him with the representation and
patronage of the constituency against
the earnest protest of this paper,
if the result is not satisfactory it
may be as well to let Mr. Ohisholm's friends fight it out among
thenuelves. The appointment of
superintendent of Dominion works
in this oity, which, we believe, has
had to be cancelled, has produced a
moat unfavorable impression, and
the persons who did the kicking
were among his ohief supporters.
The cue of Hr. Fagan is very different, but for some reason it does
not meet the approval of the party
either.
Thai "Tocsin or ms Sont,, ins Dinned Beli,," as Byron calls It, suggests
no pleasing reflections to the dyspeptic,
bilious snnerer. He partakes, of course,
but the subsequent torment Is egregiously
out of proportion to the quantity of food
he eats, which lies undigested, a weight
like lead in his unhappy stomach, There
is a remedy, however, and Its name Is
Northrop * Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure. No case Is entirely hopeleM,

Description of the I'lmrmluB HMC°
OaHleiu orr the Hlng of Slam.
Tha Summer Pulnco ol tho Kirnj, tile
Mango (iiinliriis, is eonsidercd tho liand-
Boinerrt irlirir'.! in .Sium. The main building is creeled in tlio style oi n French
chateau, nnd i.-r surrounded with grounds
laid oil with great skill by a landscape
gardener, paths winding in serpentine
sinuosity in every direction, dowel's of.all
kinds lilt the air with pei-lume, nnd to add
to the irhrllms of tiro place miniature
lakes, doited over witii lotus plants in
blossom, Itush their sparkling waters in
tile sunshine.
These lakes arc fed from the river that
flows in front of the jinlnce, whicli together with the yard is enclosed by a wall
containing a number of handsome buitd-
ings set apart Mr the various wives of tlio
King. Through the kindness of tire gardener in charge I was shown through tile
palace, tho King being absent ho not
staying thero more than a month during
the year. .
Tho palace Is built of teak and other
costly woods, the walls paneled most
handsomely; tho hard wood polished
like a mirror, bringing out the grain ;
tlie ceiling lofty, Initio!!' iu handsome designs and most elaborately gilded; tiro
floors u mosaic of various woods nlso
highly polished, each room a dillerent
design, while the broad flight of steps
that load to tho second story—the sleeping apartments — is simply grand, in
keeping with tho magnificence of the interior.
The King's chamber, bath-rooms, etc.,
were worthy of tlie abode of royalty, and
his couch 'a thing of beauty,' if not 'n joy
forever.' It wns made of rare wood and
carved in tho most exquisite designs,
draped with rare lace fringed with cold;
a gold embroidered spread covered the
bed; tho pillows and bolsters were also
hemmed with lace, and above it swung a
handsome punka to keep him cool. It
seemed more like a work of art to please
the eye than the resting place of one who
courted slumber, surcease of business
and trouble arizing from tho- control of
over 7,0iX>,0(M people.'
In some of tire rooms wc noticed some
very handsome furniture and pictures,
costly tables, crystal and alabaster vases,
etc.,' though tire place was dismantled
during tlio absence of royalty. It is a
place that one tired of power and tlio
world would retire to for a month and
live in elysiitm or Oriental ease. In the
editor of several of the lakes handsome
pavilions are eroded, whero the band
discourses music, and on their rippling
surface float barges ready to bear the
wives and children or family of the King,
when he concludes to pass his time
there.
.Scattered throughout the gardens aro
cages containing monkeys, birds, etc.,
t hat odd not a little to tho picturcsqiie-
ness of tho scene For over an hour our
party strolled through tho well-kept
grounds and gardens, lifty men being
constantly employed in beautifying and
keeping them in order. Amid a grovo ol
rarest foliage, musical with birds, is a
handsome Italian monument, erected to
tho memory of the late Queen, who was
drowned by tho sinking of A yacht,
erected by tho King, and ny hia special
direction Kept in the neatest order.
As our time was limited wo could see
but a portion of the beauties of this lovely
place. It would take a column to. speak
ut length of tho various palaces that aro
scattered over the grounds, the Oriental
watch and bell-tower that stands liko a
giant sentinel towering over all, the handsome, wilt, built like a Gothic cathedral,
with stained glass windows, but the shrill
whistle of our steam- launch reminds us
that "time is up," and, with a sigh of regret, our party left tho lovely Mango
Hardens, ita world of flowers, its fragrant
atmosphere and paradisical beauty—an
elysiitm where one could dream life
away, the Nepenthe of the poet, where
no raven will ever "sit on pallid bust; ojl
I'nllas," but eternal sunshino gilds the
velvet curtains and casts a glory on the
glistening floors.

'       ■«.ej Saved by a Fly,
Here Is a story from the Companion,
showing how a blue-bottle fly was the
means of saving much work and expense:
"Flies are most useful scavengers, for
they destroy much matter which is injurious to man. They lay their eggs In
decaying animal substances, and these
hatch out in a very short time. The
young flies begin to cat as soon as they
are hatched, and soon cat up the decayed
matter. It is said that the progeny of
two blue-bottle flies will eat up a dead
homo more quickly than one Hon could
perforin the task.
Flics have a wonderful scent. If a
piece of decayed meat is placed in an
open place whore there are no flies, it will
not be long beforo a troop ot flies will he
crawling over it. An ingenious mnn
once mado a fly servo him. A poisoned
rat had crawled undor the floor of a
gi'Utleninn's dining-room, and died thore.
i'lie room, which had boon titled up at
groat expense, became uninhabitable,
and workmen wero called In to remove
tho flooring. Rut one of them suggested
that If a blue-bottle fly should be turned
into the room, it would And the exact
spot where the dead rat was lying. Tho
llr, being caught and turned in, buzzed
niroiit the room for somo time. At last
It alighted upon a certain spot on tho
floor, and remained there.
"There's where your dead rat Is I" the
the workman said. A single board was
removed, and the rat was exposed to
view. The fly had scented the body
through tho crack in tbo floor. _

'CadentaBtlacar Animal..     *
Bayard Taylor relates the following:—
"Animals have much more capacity to
understand human speech than is generally supposed. The Hindoos invariably
talk to their elephants, and it is amazing
how much tho latter comprehend. The
Arabs govern their camels with n few
cries, and iny associates in the African
desert wore always amused whenever I
addressed a remark to the big dromedary
who wits my property for two months, yet
at the end of that timo tho beast evidently knew tbo moaning ol a number of
simple sentencec. Somo years ago, seeing
the hippopotamus in Jlarnum's Museum
looking very stolid nnd dejected, I spoko
to him in English, but he did not even
opun his eyes. Then I went to tho opposite corner of tho cage, and said iu Arabic,
'I know you; como here to me' Ho instantly turned his head towards mo; I
repeated the words, and tlioreupon he
came to tho corner where I was standing,
pressed his lingo, ungainly head against
tho bars of the cage, aud looked into my
face with a touch of delight whllo I
stroked his muzzle. I have two or three
times found a Hon who recognized the
same language, and the expression of his
eyes, for un instant, scorned positively
human."

Grant-. Home.
General Grant was particularly proud
of his stud of horses. His war charger
was an especial favorite. Ho took great
delight in exhibiting his horses to Iris
friends with whom ho was intimate.
Once at his stables with a friend lie sai.l,
"Perhajis you would liko to see t lie horse
I rude during alt tho campaigns I com-
inanded?" The animal was ordered lo
be brought out. The gent Ionian was surprized to find tlie hor.se no larger than n
lady's palfrey — small, slender, agile-
limbed, blackasa coal, intelligent, mild,
an eye like a hawk, nml 'a' lick on the
iiiuiur for all tho world like a boy's cowlick, it was such nn animal hb* women
and children would mako Into a family
pet.
The gentleman pronounced the animal
a beauty, but ex irressed a doubt its to .its
endurance. "Endurance!" said tlie
general; "this animal exceeds in endurance any horseflesh I ever saw. I have
taken him ont at daylight and kept iu the
saddle till dark, and ho came in ns fresh
when I dismounted ns when I started in
the morning. There isn't enough gold in
America to buy him. lie is an imported
horse of lino breed, and was once on .Ion"
Davis' plantation." This was just befote
Iktvis wns caught, and the visitor said,
"I presume you would exchange tho
horec for Jell' Unvls ?" "You hnve said
it." exclaimed Grunt; "I would exchange
him for his master, but for nothing else
iu tho world."
— A Gorman chemist lias Invented a
new kind of nntcsthetlc bullet, which ho
urges will, If brought Into general use,
greatly diminish thu horrors of war. The
bullet is of a brittle substance, breaking
directly when it comes in contact with
tho object at which It is aimed. It contains a powerful aiiiesthetic, producing instantaneously complete insensibility, lasting for twelve hours, which, except vlrat
tho action of tho heart continues, is not
to bo distinguished from death, While
in this condition, the German chemist
points out, the bodies may be packed in
•mbubulancc wagons and carried oil as
prisoners.

The Sunday Law. — Wo nro sure
ovory ono will bo glad that tho city
council paid no attention whatever
to tho demand of tlio vintners for tlio
repeal of tho Sunday-closing by-law.
In matters of this sort the opinion oi
tho majority must prevail, and wo bolieve a majority of the citizens as well

And STiui'ANOrriiBR.—Mr. H. Harvey, of Front st., hus decided to put
up a brick building on the lot ho lately
purchased near tho Telegraph Hotel.
The building will be 46x60 feet, but
the height has not yet been determined.
It iB expected that work on this new
blook will bo commenced very soon.
The building boom in this city is certainly vory extraordinary.

Moke ok Giieek.—Greer is Btill up

need he surprised nt nny development in this remarkable light between

rapid transit ior California fruit com.
ing to this city the C. P. R. has arranged to send a special car from Vancouver every Tuesday. This cur will
connect with tlio San Francisco steamer, and will arrivo here at 13 o'clock.
The delay avoided by this arrangement
will be very important to fruit dealers, and tho fact scorns to be a proof
of a desiro ou the part of tho railway
authorities to furnish every reasonable
facility for meeting the requirements
of the royal city trade.

More Hkdoinq.—Our esteemed co-
temporary of the Vancouver Nem has
not abandoned the oiroulation matter
yet. We thought he had. In his issue of this morning he devotes over
half a column to the subject without
over touching once upon the point at
issue. We have asked him over and
over again to accept our challenge as
it stands, or point out wherein it is unjust or unfair. He obstiuatoly refuses
to do either. Until he does ono or
the other we must decline to entertain
any counter proposal. Surely nothing
could be simpler or fairor than this.
Divided Aoainst Itself. — The
Guardian's sub-editor (Mr. Kelly) was
at Vancouver last Sunday, and in this
morning's iuue of that sheet he gives
hi. readers a few pointers. The stile-
ment, by the way, is in tho shape of
correspondence (whicli is a favorite resort of the sub-editor). Iu it .he says
" the city site is well chosen." But
the regular editor of the Guardian has
all along been telling us a very different story. He has declared the sits
to be very bad, and altogether unfit for
a eity. The sub is more accurate iu
this instance than tho chief, for all unprejudiced porsons will admit that
Vancouver ie an excellent silo for a
oity.     ^^^^^^^^^
Stanley's Death.
A despatch will be found among
our telegrams this afternoon conveying tho sod intelligence of the death
of Stanley, the celebrated African explorer. This nows will awaken a
feeling of profound sorrow throughout
the whole world. There is scarcely a
corner of the globe where the fame of
H. M. Stanley hu not penetrated.
Since 1872, when he started on his
memorable journey to find Livingston,
the civilized world ha. been keeping
an eye on all his movements. He has
met death in tho harness, risking life
for the rescue of a brave man who,
like himself, hss beon engaged in the
work of civilization. It u to be feared
the fate of Stanley may Involve also
the abandonment of Emin Posho, and,
perhaps, the collapse of a great schoino
for the civilization of the heart of the
dark continent. Further developments will be awaited with muoh interest.  	
Mr. John Magwood, Victoria Read,
