Tlio Winnipeg Free Press makes
i\ vigorous protest against ttie inflation of assessments in its city. Winnipeg's population is, it snys, "nearer
15,000 than 20,000, London's is
nbout 30,000, and Hamilton's nearly
40,000; yet Winnipeg's assessment-
is over 627,000,000, while London's
mil] Hamilton's are only in round
numbers $11,000,000 and $18,000,-
000 respectively j and Toronto witli
six times Winnipeg's population hns
an assessment of less than two und a
half tiuies ours, doing only $66,000,-
000."
In justification of the position of
Cunndn as the fifth maritime nation
of tho world, it has been computed
that since 1812, when 37 vessols
were built at Quebec, a Canadian
fleet of 7,374 vessels has sprung into
existence, with a registered tonnage
of 140,972. Tho figures of the other
,, provinces are respectively—Quebec,
1,733 and 216,577; New Brunswick,  1,101  and   315,906;   Nova
'- Scotia. 3,937 and 541,715; Prinoe
Edward Islund, 241 nnd 49,440;
British Columbia, 94 und 9,046;
Manitoba, 24 and 2,778.    This table,
■■ it may be remarked, only includes
those vessels whicli are registered in
Canada. Since Confederation the
fleet of steamers has increased from
345, with an average tonnage .of
137.43, to 1,000 steamers, with an
average tonnage of 242,32. Canada
lias now 424 sailing vessels of over
1,00 tons each, in the ownership of
which Nova Scotia loads tho wny
with 168,. followed by Now Brunswick with 141, und Quebec with 15.
The number of new vessels built
and registered in tho Dominion during 1883 was 374, of a total estimated value of $3,333,050.— Christian

Sufferings or an Empress.
Strange and sometimes pathetic are
the ways of those royal households of
which only the cold, Btately splendor
meets the eye. How few, seeing the
Empress of Germany fulfilling all the
duties of her station, every inch a
queen, would guess that for eighteen
months, since her accident, sho has
been racked with' almost intolerable
pnin. Unable to walk or leave her
chair, she had herself carried onen a
week to the Augasta hospital and to
tho Augusta fountain for the daughters of poor officers and those killed in
battlo; both theso institutions m0 her
owu work, {Rid she dispenses nf person consolation, advice,and commands,
Every Sunday, well or ailing, she at
tends divino service, not in hep private chapel or oratory, but jn one of
the  publio  churches.

Ol* hutch deeper interest to'Ameii
can observers thau the small and
distant wars in which France and
England are entangled is tho fast
ripening project for the incorporation
of tlio British West Indies with the
' Dominion. The visit to London at
this time of Sir John A. Macdonald,
the Canadian Premier, is believed to
have for one of its main purposes uu
energetic fiirthoruuco of .the annexation scheme; and Lord Derby is
- reported to have already receded
from the unfavorable uttitudo ut
. first assumed, and to have signified
a willingness to acquiesce iu the proposal. By tho acquisition of the
British insular possessions in Caribbean waters the population and resources of the Dominion will be materially increased. In '381 the ter-
. ritory controlled by the Ottawa gov-
.' eminent contained 4,350,000 while
• the British Wost India Islands, in-
' elusive of the Bahamas and Bermn-
' das, had about 1,260,000. In Ja-
, tunica atone there were 550,000 souls
in 1878, und three years later Bur
badoes was credited with 171,000
and Trinidad with upward of 150,
000. Altogether the new accessions
will be nearly equivalent in respect
of population to the Province of
Quebec. The present productive
capacities of the three-chief islands
may bo measured by nn abstract of
the statistics covering the years 1865
to 1879. Thus, the average annual
valuation of imports into Jamaica
during that period was $6,735,000,
against exports apprised at $6,790,-
000. Tho menu yearly receipts
were $2,735,000, the expenditures
$2,805,000, and (he transfer of merchandise involved the movement of
773,000 tons. Bavbadoes imported
goods to tho amount of $5,115,000.
Trinidad, which of all the islands is
the most productive and self-sustaining, sent forth staples assessed at
$11,325,000, and iu exchange took
wares amounting to $11,115,000.
, The carrying capacity of the vessels
trading with Trinidad reached a
mean annual total of 808,000 tons,
and there was a considerable surplus
of public income over outgo, the
former being $2,125,000, against
$1,180,000, The Islands of St. Lucia, Antigua, and Grenada nlso command a considerable trade, exhibit-
1 ing an aggregate movement of 612,-
000 tons and combined exports
valued nt $3,135,000. If wo strike
a balance sheet for all the British
Antilles we find the exports exceed-
) ing $31,800,000, and the imports
fulling but a littlo short of $29,000,.
000, whilo to offset an outlay of $6.-
620,000 there is a public revenue of
$6,835,800, This is a better exhibit than was made by the Dominion
itself, whose average expenditure
during a part of the period under review exceeded tho receipts by nearly
$8,000,000. It concerns ub to watch
closely the progress of the annexation
plan, for its fulfillment will no doubt
be promptly followed by overtures
for a treaty between the Dominion
government and our own looking to
. the freo admission of West Indian
staples to the markets of this country.—Cor. y, r. Sun.

She who could best reveal the truth

patience is tho old Silesian woman who
was brought from her peasant home in
the provinces to give the sovereign relief by her deft manipulations. She
has done nothing else since her childhood, nnd the professional gift of healing friction is hereditary in iter fumily,

shepherds. This aged woman rubs tho

Is the Moon Inhabited?
A lotter from Berlin contains a
very interesting communication concerning tho alleged discoveries by Dr.
Blendmann, a professor in the Royal
Academy in Berlin, of evidences
that tho moon is inhabited. Dr.
Blendmann professes to havo discovered that thu telescopic observations
mado up to tho presont time Imve
givon a net-alive result on account of
the excessive light which irradiates
from the lunar disk and prevents np
exact examination of the surface. Dr,
Blendmann softened tho light by using
the condensed smoke of camphor.
Ho had' to mako hundreds of trials
before finding tho exact incisure of
softening required to obtain a perfect
imago of the moon. He thon took
with a reflecting telescopo a very detailed nnd correct photographic view
of tho moon, which hu afterward exposed under a powerful solar microscope. The circle obtained in tho
photograph had in tlio micrnscopu a
diameter of over thirty-three feet.
In this way, tho story is, he was able
to perceivo that what have been believed to be seas aro really regions
covered with rich vegotation, ond what
havo always been taken for mountainous regions are deserts and seas. One
can see, the letter says, witli striking
distinctness, oities, towns and villages, and there are strong indications
of industry and commerce. With a
full moon Dr. Blendmann has obtained photographic views so distinct
thnt they indicate that if larger tele*
scopes could be used the discovery
would bo still more completely confirmed,
A True Story.
"John, I wish you would chop a
little stove wood before you go down
town," said Mrs. Smith yeBterday
morning, "for I have a big washing
to-day."
"I'd do it, Jane," suid Mr. Smith,
"but I sprained my back yesterday
while lifting and don't feel able."
"Well, John, if that's the caso I'll
try and do it myself. I know what it
is to havo a lame bnck. Poor follow,
hadn't I better put a plaster ou it for
you?"
"No, dear, I guess it will gut wull in
a day or two. By the way 1 guess I'll
go duwn a few minutes."
As John sneaked off ho iclt nshnmed
of himself. "What if she hnd asked
how I hurt my back?" he thought.
"I would havo been ashamed to tell
her that I did it by lifting a barrel of
whiskoy for a drink."
Fivo minutes later ho wns seen
mauling awny at a "striking machine,"
at 5 cents a blow, and it cost hi ul more
for tho forty blows that ho struck than
it would havo cost to buy thu wood
and hire the washing for his poor sick
wifo. He struck a blow 800 pounds
heavier, too, than his neighbor across
the street who chops wood for a living.
Such is life.

"Are you going to make your husband a Christmas present this year?"
inquired Mrs. Tilths of hur dear friend,
Mrs. Sweet.
"I'm afraid not," roapondod Mra.
Sweet: "I was designing to, nnd had
saved up quito a sum of money fur
that purpose; but I saw such a lovo uf
a bonnet that I could nut resist the
temptation to buy it. I am afraid Mr.
Sweet will have to go without his present. Shalt you give Mr. Tilths any*
thing?"
"Oh, yos. I shall give him just a
splendid prosont."
indeed?   Whnt is it to bu?"
I shall give him a box of thoso
very expensivo cigars of which he is
so fond, and whicli he complains that
ho can so poorly afford to buy,
"How have you managed to save ao
muoh money?"
"Oh, I haven't done it that.way.
Whon he loaves his box carelessly on
the library table I take uut one or two
cigars and lay thom away carefully, so
that by Christmas I shall have enough
to fill a box,"
"What a perfectly lovely idea?

Wedaesday  Moralag,  Nov. S, ISM.
Yesterday was election day in the
United Stated, and the telegraph
wires were entirely monopolized by
despatches relating thereto. Up to
the time of going to press thore was
nothing to indicate with any certainty who shall bo the next president. It is believed that the Cleveland 'people have carried New York
by a majority of about 20,000.
From the decision of Sir M. B.
Begbie it seems tbat it will bo necessary now to commence anew in the
city squares sale. It will hardly
be possible to have the squares sold
in time to permit their being placed
on the assessment roll for next year
and the reault will be a loss of about
$1000 municipal levenue. In the
mean time what position shall wo
be in when the syndicate asks for a
railway bonus 1
We commend to the serious attention of oar readers everywhere the
paper on Chinese Immigration which
we republish iu another column from
the New York Evangelist, The
view taken is one whioh must carry
great weight, as it commends itself
at once to the judgment of the reader. It would be well if this article
were extensively circulated not only
in this' proviuce bnt throughout the
Dominion at large.
It is now definitely announced
that Sir John Macdonald is to hnve
a "reception" on hia return from
England—-and it is suspected strongly that this had been arranged before he left; the country. Hon. Hr.
Mowat's reception is admitted on all
hands to have been a magnificent
success, and Conservatives feel they
must get up a show that will throw
the Mowat affair completely into the
shade. There was no man in the
party who could inspire enthusiasm
like Sir John, and ho was despatched
to England with instructions that
he should not return until everything was ready to go off. The
rec(^pt|op( will in all probability be
a great political demonstration.
There have been a great many
surmises respecting the cause of Sir
John Macdonald's hasty and unexpected visit to England. Even tho
Conservatives seem ab a loss to furnish -;t sufficient! reason, und their
explanations vary to the verge of
contradiction. It is just possible
that Sir John goes to consummate
the proposed reception of the West
India islands into the Canadian confederation. This scheme has now
been discussed for some time, and
it iB just such a scheme as Sir John
would' take up nnd carry through
with gush enough to make it appear extremely popular to the people of Canada. Ib is well known
that the N. P., which carried the
present Canadian government into
office, is rapidly losing its popularity. The general elections are not
far off, and the [tarty wire-pullers
may have come to the conclusion
that a new programme is necessary
to insure success. After receiving
the homage of Jamaica, Sir John
will return with flying colors to
receive the homage of liis party in
Canada. Then the touting will be
arranged, and the organs will make
the most possible out of the circumstance until polling day.
Cranberry Culture.
There are thousands of acres of
land in this country admirably suited to the growth  of  cranberries.
Much of these lauds now lie waste
and useless, and by the expenditure
of  a   moderate  sum  it might become very valuable and profitable.
Cranberries are a staple nrticlo of
commerce.   They can be preserved
for  a long time, and always command high prices.   The demand is
not   likely  to  grow less, and the
coat of   conducting   a   cranberry
farm is not much.   Ab an example
of tbe profits bf this business the
Willamette Farmer gives the foi
lowing instance:   "Two years ago a
man who understood the culture of
cranberries purchased a swamp in
Western Washington and  planted
out the wild native cranberry with
such success that in two years his
cultivation .produced a berry three
timet the size of   the   wild fruit,
This is the second year, and he has
picked II1 0 barrels of berries.   He
is now planting out tbe larger eastern   cranberry,   but   believes  the
smaller  native   fruit   will   possess
superior flavor aud acquire sufficient
size.     By comparing eastern cut-
tingi with native vines he is satisfied tbey are identical and that they
will improve very rapidly.     The
man alluded to purchased TOOGacivs
of swamp 'for a song,' nnd iu two
years has 1100 barrels of fruit
worth $15 per barrel, $16,500,
while his total outlay was not half
that The cranberry is the most
delicious fruit for sauce with meats
that is known, and always commands
a high price." Now, we should be
glad to see some enterprising British
Columbian engage intelligently in
this industry, and we are persuaded
the result will be most satisfactory
both to himself and the country.
The W. C. T. If.
It was our intention to notice before this some of the principal phases of the temperance agitation,
which is just now swooping over
this whole continent, as presented
by the W. 0. T. U. The periodical visits of lady lecturers on tern
perance have doubtless in some
measure tended to increase und
strengthen tho agitation, and to
arouse the public mind to reflection
upon the subject thoy discuss. And
although the agitation has not the
freshness'of novelty about it, yet
tho public interest hus been so enlisted that there is no luck of hearers. Miss Moore, who so lately
visited this city and some of the
surrounding villages, seems to have
been greeted with large audiences
wherever Bhe appeared; aud any
remnant of prejudice which muy
havo existed against the appearance
of woman on a public temperance
platform is quickly dispelled in the
presence of tho womanly bearing,
cultured address, wide and varied
erudition, and special aptitude displayed by these ladies in the advocacy of their.cause. This certainly
npplies to Miss Frances E. Willard,
Mrs. Judith Foster, and Miss Henrietta Moore, who have already
visited our province. There can he
no question but the liquor traffic is
now being put upon its trial throughout the Dominion, und the Woman's
movement is certainly a very important factor in the controversy. The
question is being lifted out of mere
commonplace and threadbare platitude, and invested with the dignity
of a living issue. This woman's
work is characterized by its uncompromising attitude, its appeal to
abstract justice, its thorough organization, its scientific scrutiny of
facts, its tireless exposure of the
evils of the liquor traffic, nnd its
ceaseless agitation of the groat
question involved. Out of these
elements revolution seems to be fast
emerging, and the indications are
that the traffic will be forced to
yield. Miss Moore's addresses in
this city were delivered before large
audiences, and were full of interest.
The existence of this organized
woman's movement was justified
upon the ground of a regretted necessity. Ib was the outbreak of. a great
suppressed emotion und overtaxed
forbearance. Woman, ns the preeminent keeper of the home, was
specially assailed by this traffic, and
there are now over 150,000 women
on this continent bunded together
for the defence of their dearest
earthly heritage. Calm, confident
and aggressive, tbey stand between
the home and the saloon, The principle of prohibition is vindicated as
against any modification of license
The idea of license lo engage in a
demoralizing traffic the W. C. T. U.
repudiates ns neither right in the
abstract nor expedient in nny law
ful sense. This position Miss Moore
argued iu the abstract and vindicated by an Appeal to facts, lies,
pecting the revenue question she
showed thut tho consumer really
pays the revenue. He takes his
money to the dealer who, after appropriating the greater part of it
for himself, distributes the paltry
remainder to revenue and other
purposes. The success of Miss
Moore und the other ladies who
havo visited this province under the
auspices of the W. C. T. U. does not
seem to depend upon any special
play of humor or recital of tragic
incident, but upon well-conducted
argument, sustained by a pathetic
nnd often enthusiastic earnestness
that nover fails to make a deep impression upon the audience. The
yeurs are not far back when a temperance lecture meant a kind of
light comedy, and the lecturer, whoso
mimicry and powers of contortion
were most extensive would meet
with the most cordial reception. It
was a sort of moral show intended
muoh moro for thn amusement than
the enlightenment of mankind. But
since woman has taken the temperance platform all this is changed.
With hur the subject is too f-jjl nf
concern to be turned into a farce.
It touches her homo, it touches tier
heart; and wc havo nob bhe slightest
doubt bnt her earnest agitation will
eventually sweep from the land the
traffio she so much hates. And
when the land begins tn realize how
much better and happier life is with
out this traffic, it will rise up nnd

Scotch Beauties. — A writer in
Harper's Magazine says: Thu handsomest man I have over Been was a
boatman on the west of Skye, the
calm and serious dignity of whose face
seemed more suggestive of Leonardo
da Vinci than of herring-fishing; and
the handsomest woman I have ever
seon was n young married lady, who,
some years ago, happened to be travel*
ing in the Olnnsmnn, and whose gently
modulated English indicated an Inverness origin, when a Highland girl,
even of the pensant class is pretty (and
the phenomenon is not of n very rare
occurrence), the prettiness ia of a refined nnd intellectual type; the forehead high, the eyes clear, full aud contemplative, the mouth tine, and the
expression of the fnce gentle and yet
firm. Wordsworth never forgot the
beauty of the Highland girl he saw at
Inversnnid. Indeed, it iB said he had
to recur to that Urnnt whon ho wished
to pay a poetical compliment to his
wife. For the rest, the way in whioh
an educated Highland young lady
speaks English is one of the moat delightful things in the world, though no
doubt she would be very much surprised, aud even indignant, if she wns
told thnt she had nny accent nt all.
The Premier's Visit.—Tho Hou.
Mr. Smithe has inaugurated a new system, and ono which we vory much
commend, in visiting the interior of
this province. We believe thut it is a
long time Blnce a premier has set foot
in our district, In uu other way is a
minister uble to get accurate information of tho wants of the people. By
traveling over the ruads, and conversing with everybody, he can obtaiu an
idea of their desires and opinions,. It
seems eminently proper, also, thnt the
Chief Commissioner of Lands & Works
woult jersonnlly inspect an important
work liko the Eagle Pass Wagon Road.
By so doing he is then ablo to judge
us to the value to the country and
of the manner in which thtr contract
has beon carried out. This district is
now tho most important one of the
province, and its various wants must
be granted nt the next session of the
legislature or the whole country will
be aet back, Spallumcheen, Okanagan,
Similknmeen, etc., will be filled with
numbers seeking homes, nnd improvements will be required throughout
those districts referred to. The Big
Bend nogion wilt need its trail connecting with the railway at Eagle Pass,
Other portions of the Kamloops region
will hnve their demands. By visiting
all these places the lender of the Government nos set a laudable example
which we hope will be followed in the
future.—Kandoops Sentinel,
Van Horne Again.—Mr. W. O.Van
Home was interviewed by a Toronto
Globe representative iu Montreal on
the 23d ult. iu reference to tbe riots at
Miohiplcuten, the Pacific coast terminus and the projected branch lines,
Tho rumor Imd spread that the men
were not being paid regularly, which
was the cause of all the troubles. Mr.
Van Horne stated that the men were
paid regulnrly every month, tho expenditure being $1,100,000. Bud weather had caused a delay of a few days
in the paymaster's reaching tho camps.
It wob a dangerous experiment to send
men witli hundreds of thousands of
dollars in small tug boats.* The men
hnd their' choice to take cash or due
bills, payable at nny office of the Bank
of Montreal. Being nsked whether the
location of the Pacific terminus had
yet been definitely fixed, he said that
at present it had not, but he thought
it more than likely that it would bo on
tho mainland some distance west of
Port Moody, where n good harbor could*
be obtained. They were now considering the question of extensions and
brunch lines iu Ontario, and he believed that one uf the lirst of tho extensions to be constructed would bo the
ono from Ingorsnll through London
and Chatham to tho Detroit rivor. The
financial difficulty wns the only one
they had to grapple with in the matter nnd by spring they would have
thnt removed. Among the branch
lines which were under consideration
were some which, if built, would reach
Goderioh, Kincardine, Guelph nnd
other towns in Western Ontario, but
there were none uf them fully decided
upoh yet. The extensions, both west
from Ingersotl to the Detroit river,nnd
east from Smith's Falls to Montreal,
would probably be built before any
further branch lines nro constructed.
Hundreds of letters from those using
Ayer's Hair Vigor attest its value op a
restorer of gray hair to its natural color.
As a stimulant and tonic, preventing and
often curing baldness, and cleansing and
soothing the scalp, its use cannot be too
strongly recommended.
Overcharges.—Some officials of the
Northern Pacific Railway and the Oregon Railway & Navigation Co. hnvo
been visiting Victoria in the interests
of their trade. The chief object of
thoir visit was to make arrangements
for rebates in cnBe of overcharge*. Mr.
Robt. Irving was appointed local agent
of the companies at Viotoria, and it
has beon decided that ho shall pay all
overcharges immediately whwi they
aro brought to his notice, nud the O.
R. & N. Oo, will collect thu amount
represented by the overcharge from
the company who made the mistake.
Such nu arrangement must be extremely satisfactory to thai people of
Victoria, and shows plainly that these
companies are anxious to develop nnd
retain the transcontinental trade of
British Coiumbin. The snmu grievance hns existed for aomu time at this
city. On some froight bills the ovor-
ohni'gea have beon enormous, and grent
delny nnd annoyance have been experienced sometimes in hnving the
overcharges adjusted. It is to be
hoped tho officers of the carrying companies will consider the propriety of
extending to this city the same privilege they have given to Victoria. Our
trade is not yet so large ns that of the
capital, but it is growing aud will be
worth looking after. When the C.
P, R, has been completed our facilities for receiving oastern freights will
be much better than those of Victorin, and it is therefore of grent importance that the O. R. & N. Co.
should afford us evory reasonable nc-
cummodatiou if it wishes to retain our
patronage.

Deliberate Murder!
A GUARD 8H0T IN COLD BLOOD I
Yesterday morning tho city was
thrown into some excitement by the
report that a guard had been deliberately shot at the penitentiary. Upon
enquiry it turned out that the report
was only too terribly true. Four
guards named respectively, Sterry,
Roberts, Hicky, and Rogers, lodged
in n house about a quarter of a mile
from the penitentiary,'formerly occupied by Rev. Mr. Bnskett. Sterry,
Roberts and Hiokey occupied one
room and Rogers occupied another.
Yesterday morning Sterry got up as
usual nnd went to a small room off the
kitchen to wash. While eugnged in
this act it seems thnt Rogers got up,
went to the* door of the room, and
deliberately fired at him with his revolver. The other guards hoard the
firing, but ns there was no other noiso
they nover for a moment suspected
the reul truth. Sterry seems to have
turned round, and Rogers fired two
more shots, overy ono of whioh took
effect, and after Sterry fell he tired at
him again. Roberts, who roomed
with Sterry, heard an exclamation nnd
ran to the room where he saw the
prostrate form of Sterry, and Rogers
standing near the door with the revolver in his hand. Rogers cocked
the pistol again and said to Roberts,
''If you open your mouth' I'll shoot
you." Roberts went off und gave the
alarm. Rogers loft tho house, walked
into the city, nearly a mile and a half,
and delivered himself up nt tho gaol.
As Boon as a report of the matter
reached the penitentiary, Warden McBrido despatched n guard to secure
Rogers, but before he had overtaken
him the murderer hnd surrendered
hinisolf. Coroner Trew was notified
and held an inquest in the afternoon,
tho jury finding that deceased came to
his death from a gun shot in the hnnds
of Rogers. Tlie coroner did not
commit the prisoner but decided to
place the matter in tho hands of n
magistrate, and it is probable the
caso will come up,fur hearing to-day.
The slayer and hiB victim were both
from England, and hnd been about
five or bix months nt the penitentiary.
They were quiet and efficient guards,
and it wns not known that bad blood
existed between them. It is reported
that Sterry had accused Rogers of
theft some time ago, apd that Rogers
took this fearful revenge upon him,
Thuy wore both young men, about 35
yenrs of ago. Rogers is now in gaol,
and appears quite unconcerned about
his position. It is one of the most
deliberate murders on record.
Victor Hay Press.
Tlie "Victor Hay Press," which I
lately bought from Mr. E. Prengel,
gives perfect satisfaction, and I have
been testing it pretty well. I consider
it the best press thnt evor came lo this
province.
The claims for the superiority uf it
have been fully sustained, and, as it is
the cheapest of the standard presses,
I recommend it to ray neighbors.

The Injunction Case.
This case came before the Chief Justice, at Victoria, last Friday. The
Colonist gives tho following roport:
Alexander Ewen, plaintiff ; the Corporation of the City of New Westminster, et al., defendants.
Mr. Pooley, with whom wu Mr.
Bole, moved for an injunction to restrain the defendants from selling the
Merchant Square, under the land salo
by-law, 1884.
Reading the affidavit of the plaintiff,
whioh set out that Meroltnnt Square
was dedicated to the public uso as a
public square by Colonel Moody in
1850 ; that the proposed Bale was in-'
jurious to plaintiffs property, adjoining said property; that the council had
failed to comply with the uot of 1884
authorizing the Bale, inasmuch ns they
did not deposit a mnp with the reserve
colored rod in the lnnd registry office;
that the counoil tirst passed a by-law
whoreon the vote of the ratepayers was
to be taken on the 18th day of July,
1884, the mnyor irregularly summoned
a special meeting of the council, without issuing a proper summons in that
bohalf, and that at the hour fixed,
namely, 3 p. m., no member of the
council attended, and the clerk, without lawful authority in that behalf, adjourned the meeting till 8 o'clock that
eveuing. At that hour an irregular
meeting took place and said by-law waa
repealed and notice of motion given to
introduce a new by-law-, the one now
objected to ; a voluminous quantity of
newspapers and mnps.
His Lordship—Hnve you any evidence to show that, on the 18th day of
February, 1884, there was no map col
ored red showing the reserves deposited in the land registry office ?
Mr. Pooley—Mr. Bole'B affidavit
clearly sets out that no suoh map was
deposited.
Mr, Drake contended thnt the subsequent deposit in the Innd registry
office, New West mi nfter, was a compliance with the act.
Hia Lordship—No, it is not. In my
opinion the act is a nullity. The
omission to deposit the map is fatal, aa
without the map tho act cannot be
rightly understood. I think the council should take caro what they are doing. I grant the injunction asked
for.
Mr. Pooley and Mr. Bole for plaintiff.
Mr, Drake, Q. C, and Mr. McColl,
for defendants.

for $250 or $300 a year. The stablo in
whicli he keeps his horse is good onough
for my family. You hire me ?" And
further, how would I like it if my trustees should say to me: "You and your
family muat meet tliis competition, or
this truly eminent divine must take
your place!" Well, such is tho weakness of human naturo—I wouldn't like it
at all; and as I and my family nre a
great deal nearer to me, and iu my judgment, much more valuable to tho country than my friend from China and his
would be, if I could prevent this state of
affairs, I think I'd try!
Again, to carry the theory into the
pure ether of political life, Senator Hoar,
with a comfortable bank account that no
Chinese immigration could touch, made
a thrilling speech some time ago from
his place in the Senate, in favor of this
immigration, and against the intolerance
of refusing to welcome  the Chinaman
witli open arms to be a partaker of	
the workinginon's bread, of course, but
not of the rolls eaten by the families of
Senators.   Exactly I
But bow would tho Senator view the
subject should he receive a letter from

and requesting him to be so obliging as
to take an early train for him, where
alas! he Bhould find on his arrival that

Chinese immigration.
From tbo New York Evangelist.
While this is one of the burning questions that confront the American people,
the entire subject seems to have been
discussed from a wrong standpoint, and
with but m partial view, too, of what this
immigration involves for a large and
valuable portion of the population.
Chinese immigration has been urged
aud defended by one class of our citizens
only, the upper or brain-working class,
as It is termed—the capitalists, manufacturers, merchants, clergymen, and
would-be statesmen—the very persons,
who as a matter of fact, are not injured
and whose incomes are not adversely
affected, but if anything, rather benefitted thereby. In my judgment, and as I
shall endeavor to substantiate, there is
in tins fact a heartless selfishness—even
though it bu unintentional -towards our
poorer and less fortunate brethren, and a
blindness to what is really best for the
publio welfare, absolutely Inconceivable,
Lot us see precisely whore tliis immigration strikes,
There is iu this land such au institution as the workingmau's family. An
institution not only of a very high grade,
but of a proportionate publio value. At*
lowing for all exceptional casos, the
workingmau's home in this country is
the beat and most prosperous of its class
on earth. That this is so, is largely due
to tho high rate of wages thu man has
received, and which It is as muoh his
right to receive as It is his employer's
duty to pay.
I use the terms "right to receive" and
"duty to pay," because the American
workingman, as the best of Ida type, and
as a vital factor in nil that constitutes
tho public wen), has rights hore which
must bo respected; rights to prosperity
and to tho means by which thnt prosperity is to be attained, and which, in view
of tho general well-being of a bud, are to
be recognized quite as clearly ns nro
those by which his employer swells his
fortune.
Chiuose immigration, by reason of tho
Chinaman's willingness to work for comparatively nothing, strikes directly at
these rights of the workingman and at
the best interests of his household;
which, if correctly viewed, are not only
as dear to him, but quite as valuable tithe nation, ns nre those of nny other'
olass of its citizens,
Now, tho American workiugmnn and
his family cannot exist aud retain their
prosperity, their comfort, their decency,
nnd llieir worth to the ualloii at the wnges
a Chinaman would bu glad to receive;
nnd I aftlrin that this quality of the
workhigmau ami Ids homo-which exists
and is t<> be perpetuated by a comparatively high rate of wages—canuot be
lowered without great publio injury.
Wo Bhould remember that this is not a
question of competition between American cltieens, but between Americans and
barbarians; nnd that as a factor in national prosperity, a barbarian, even If he
will work for lower wnges, is not as conducive to tho country's welfare ns an
American who demanda a higher rato.
1 hnve said that Chiueso immigration
is urged nml defended by the upper or
brain-working classes, and by thom with
nn apparent Indifference to Its effect on
the hnnil-workers as hcnrtlosa as it Ib unwise. Let mo mnke nu argument am ad
hominem application of tins theory, and
see how it would work,
I receivo from my church wages to the
amount of $ .   Thia enables me to
have tliose comforts and to make that
proviafon for my family In the way of
clothing, food, education, aud general
well-being, so necessary in onr American
viow to tlio proper environments of the
home. Now, placing my work upon tho
purely wngo-basia, to which the working-
man and his family muat come, how
would I like It If the Rev. .John China
impartially distributed themselves in
all other vocations and callings, thnt as
a matter of fact the distinguished Senator Bhould find it impossible to support
his family, unless by bringing them down
to the plane and tho wngea of his friends
froin Vang-tse-KiaugT How would the
Senator like that? And if such were
actually the startling conditions of the
problem, I should be pleased to inquire
whether they would, or would not, be
likely to work any modification of his
views touching the intolerance of-*—-?
It may be difficult to imagine the income of the Senator being thus suddenly
swept away; but tbat precisely is what
the logic of his speech would do for ttie
workingman. And Is that any less painful for him than for a cultured statesman
from Massachusetts! Just here lie the
pith and marrow of the whole case: that
we do not atop to think that these aro
literally the terrible facts which Chinese
immigration would force the workingman
and his family to face. Would the Senator like the chalice pressed to his own
lipsf < But perhaps lie might rise and
blandly say, "Ah yes; quite so! But a
wise Providence has so ordered it that
the Senator business Is a matter of brain,
and uot of hand-work. The Chinaman,
through his lock of ability and education, is unfortunately debarred from occupying the* position I adorn, and consequently, as I and my family cannot be
affected by the immigration I so eloquently advocate, and as It touches only
the workingman And his interests, all
mon of unbiased minds must readily see
the intolerance of ."   Which simply
means that the Senator and pretty much
the entire class he represents, are very
eaaily reconciled to other people's
troubles.
Has it then come to this, that the
more fortunate, the wealthier, the brain-
working classes in this country Bhall
favor Chinese immigration simply because it docs not touch their pockets,
their comforts, their domestic interests,
while they look with utter indifference
at the way in which it militates against
these blessing* when possessed by tliat
vast and invaluable class of citizens, tho
hand-workers of the nation?   -
To my mind there was nothing in all
the horrors of Slavery which evinced a
more heartless brutality, a meaner selfishness, or a more inconceivable blindness to the welfare of the republic, than
this. The prosperity of the hand-workingman, which depends on living wages
for him and his faintly, is indissolubly
connected with our own; and they who
os brain-workers arc safe from tliis com-
fiotltion, are yet willing to injure their
land-working brothers, would do well
to remember tho words pf Whlttier—
"That laws of eliangolcSHS justice bind
Oppressor with opim-sund;
Ana closo ns sin and sutterlng Joined,
We march to Fate abreast." g
To mo it is inconceivable how the so-
called npp r olasses of Americans, if
they believe in the value of our civilization, can approve of Chinese immigration, unless they are willing to have it
strike them precisely where it does the
hand-workingmant iu the immense diminution, if not the complete destruction,
of the Incomes on which they are to live.
I do not believe there is a man in those
"upper classes" who would favor Chi*
nese immigration if he knew tt wonld
absolutely destroy his means of living—
not one. What right has he then to
favor it when he knows it will do just
that to the band-worker!
I do believe, however, and most certainly hope that the workingman who
loves his dear ones would not submit to
this wrong, which would tend simply to
put hts decrease in wages into his employer's pockets, without a resistance
that would cause tho ears of our American Israel to tingle as did those of the
Israel of old. When the country Is prosperous, when corporations and manufacturers (as heaven knows) are making
money fast enough, what moral right
have they to seek for an increase of
wealth through the infernal machinery
nf a competition that would destroy tho
prosperity of so largo ond valuable a
portion of tbe population as tho hand-
workingmen and their households?
And shall onr legislation on this subject be entirely for the benefit of the rich
mnn, while it not only utterly ignores,
but tends to completely break down, the
prosperity of tho poor mnn, who by tho
sale of his labor alone may find the
means to shelter ull that hv holds dear
ou earth? The workiuginaii knows his
strength; and tho party tliat should venture ou tliis outrage would be hurled so
fur from life, that the tru pet of Wain-id wonld fait to call It iu time for the
general resurrect inn.
Hero then is my view of Chinese immigration: Wc should have it for
American tin ml-workers just ns soon ns
American brain-work ers are willing tn
have It for themselves.

Berlin, Oct. 211.—A feature of tho
elections in Germany has been the enormous increase of the Socialist vote in
Berlin nnd other cities, The strength of
that party in tho next German parlla-
mcit will probably be double that in
the last. It shows the complete failure
of the progressive measures undertaken
for splitting the reichstag into many sections, and renders the hopes of the government of attaining any greater majority more improbable.
New York, Oct. 20.— The Commercial
Bulletin has interviewed Captain Bedford Pirn, of the British navy, who reiterates his declaration that the Panama
canal, as now being constructed, is im
practicable, He says: "I heard down
there that De Lesscps intends to visit
the isthmus during tho dry season of
1886, to inaugurate! the completed section from Aspinwall to Gatson, about
seven miles. He wil find the actual
cutting less than two miles, with only
water euough to admit the passage of a
small steamer, by an entrance in Simon
bay, and auch as would disgrace the
merest tyro in his profession. It certainly will surprise even De Lessens
himself."
The captain also writes to the Sun the
following conclusion, after a careful
consideration of liis notes and observations:
First—The Panama canal, at sea level,
cannot possibly be completed for any
reasonable sum of money, or within any
reasonable time.
Second—Yellow fever has now become
epidemic, and the climate consequently is
more or loss de&dly. Many thousand em-
Siloyeca of the oanal works have already
alien victims to Ito attacks.
Third—There is anxious desire on the
part of many of the natives of Panama
to secede from the United States of Colombia, and that this secession is now being worked out, with theideaof inducing
the French to extend their protection
over the new and independent state of
Panama, The connivance is not actual,
but the participation of the French in
this idea is more than conjectural, for the
obvious reason that it ia as much to their
interest. Indeed, it means life or death
to the canal works.
Cairo, Oct. 30.—There will be a general movement of the British forces up
the Nile next week. It is reported that
two steam launches have been wrecked
in the cataracts. Several of the tribes
at Suakim, hearing of the successes of
Gen. Gordon, are manifesting an inclination to desert Osman Digma, Everything
if quiet at Kasaoula.
Paris, Oct. 30.—An official dispatch
from Gen. Briere DeLIsIe, dated Hanoi,
October 25, says the garrison of .Tuyen
Quan repulsed several attacks of Chinese on the 14th and 10th instants without loss. The enemy withdrew discouraged. The governors of Yun Naand
Louvine Phoo have only 4,000 men on
the upper Red river. No Chinese are

best to suppress pirncy.
Cairo, Oct. 30,—-In passing the cataracts, Captain Lewis, of the Canadian
voyagers, fell overboard and was drowned.
Paris, Oct. 30.—The Telegraph states
that Prime Minister Ferry hns accepted
England's offer to mediate between China
and France.
London, Oct. 30.-—In the house of
commons to-day Gladstone said the advances ou Khartoum would have been
made earlier had it been possible, A
motion granting precedence of all other
business to the franchise bill was adopted
without debate. Lord Randolph Church*
ill moved the amendment to the address
in reply to the Queen's speech, of which
he gave notice Tuesday. This censures
the Right Hon. Joseph Chamberlain,
president of the board of trade, "for inciting, by his speeches, interference with
the freedom of political discussion and
justifying riot and disorder." In making
the motion Lord Randolph charges
Chamberlain with moral and direct com-
plicity in the recent riots, which made
things very uncomfortable for his lordship.
Alkxandria, Oct 30.—Persistent rumors are again current that Khartoum

A REMARKABLE STORI.
* This very uncertainty pleased her
imagination, and inclined her to the
new-comer. But it was embarrassing
tn Iind herself in tho midst of a scene
where so many confusing, uncompre-
hended elements were at work, nnd
where something which was not family harmony and peace lay evidently
under the surface. When she roso up
to go away, the unknown rose too, but
the captain wns on the alert.   -
"You can now go back to your gossip," he said, "my dear; for I mean
to see Hester round the corner."
"No, Captain Morgan. It .Byery
damp, and your rheumatism—"
"Bah! my rheumatism. Thore are
worse things than my rheumatism," he
said, bustling to get his cont.
"Might I not replace you, grandfather? It would bo a pleasure, nnd I
have no rheumatism."
This idea pleased Hester. It would
be only for a moment* but ho was
something new. She was so sadly
familiar with evory person and thine
about that any novelty was delightful
to her. But the captain wus not to be
shaken off. He pushed Ronnld back
into his seat. "There are worse things
than rheumatism," he said. And he
scrambled into Iub coat and took Hester under his arm with unwonted formality. She felt annoyed and angry
beyond description—vexed at her old
friend. Why should ho interrupt tho
innocent talk? Why interfere su
pointedly to prevent the simplest communication betwoen her and tho
stranger? A mero politeness, whero
could have been tho harm of that?
And thon it was quite unnecessary that
anybody should see her home. That
the old man should risk nn illness to-
do this, when she had bo often run unattended from one door to the othor,
was mure irritating than words could
say. And,, what was worst of all, it
mado the captain hss perfect iu her
opinion—tho captain of whom she had
felt, that all the rest of the world
-failiug her, hero was still an excellence upon which she could fall back.
Since they had como in, though the
interval was short, tho autumn evening had closed in completely. It was
very damp and cold. The Common
lay in a whito mist; tho sky hazy,
with a fow faint stars looking down
through veils of vapor; the atmosphere heavy.
"Why should you come out to catch
cold?" Hester'said. "I want no ono.
I am quite able to take care of myself."
"And jl want no one, my dear, except myself, to have anything to do
with you,"said ths old man. "lam
not afraid to toll you my manning
without disguise."
"Then stand nt the door while I run
homo," she pleaded; hut ho would not
spare her a step of the way- Ho hobbled along to the veranda, with his
comforter twisted about his throat and
mouth, speaking out of tha folds of it
with a muffled voice.
"If it was any girl but you I should
bo afraid -to say it, lest the mere contradict ion 'might be enough for them;
but with you I am not afraid," hs
aaid.
Was his confidence justified? Was
Hester too wise to be moved by that
hint of opposition—that sense that a
thing which is forbidden must be
pleasant? It is dangerous to predict
of any one that tliis will be the case;
and perhaps the captain did his best to
falsify his own hope. He took her to
the very-door and saw her admitted,
as if there might' he a chance up to
the lost moment of the alarming grandson still producing himself to work
her harm; and then he hobbled back
in the gathering mists. He oven stood
lingering'nt^bis own door beforo he
went in to the fireside nud tho cheerful light.    .
"Neithefti'. Catherine nor Hester,
neither' the young jior the old," he
Baid to himself. In his onrnestness he
repeated the words half aloud, "Neither Catherine nor Hester, neither
monoy nor lovo." And then thore
came something of scorn into tho old
man's voice; "If Jits' father's son is
capable of hve," he said.
*      #*■'    *      *       #
"I liko your Ronnld," said Misa
Vernon*,-*: She had.-cnme to my one
of her usual visits to Her old relations.
The grandson whom Hester hnd made
acquaintance with without seeing his
face had now be«n uuarly a week nt
the Vernonry, and was known to
everybody about. The captain's precautions had, of course, come to nothing, He liad gune, as in duty bound,
to pay his respects to the grent lady
who was his relation, too, though in a
Tur-off degree, and he had plensed her.
Catherine thought of nothing loss than
of giving n great pleasure to her old
friends by her pruiao. "He is full of
news and information, which is n godsend to us country folks, and he is
very good*looking, qui ne gate rim."
Mrs. Morgan looked up from her
place by the fireside with a smilo of
pleasure. She sat folding her peaceful old hands with an nir of beatitude,
which, notwithstanding her content,
had not been upon her countenniico
hefore the young man's arrival.
"That is a great pleasure to me,
Catherine, to know that you like him,
said thu old. lady, "He seems to me
all thnt, nnd kind besides.''
"What I should hnve expected your
grandson to be," said Catherino. "I
want him to sou tho peoplo hore, and
make a few acquaintances.    I don't
■ iippnen out' liUlopaoplo nb UedDorollgll
can be of muoh importance to a young
man in town; still, it is a pity to neglect an opportunity, He is coming to
dine with me to-morrow—as I supposo
he told yau."
• The old lady nodded her head several timet, with tho same soft smile of
happiness.
"Vou aro always good," she snid;
"you havo done everything, Catherine, for me and my old man, But, if
you want to go straight to my heart,
you Know the way lies through the
-   children—-my poor Katie's boys."
"I am ulad that the direct route is
eo etuy," Miss Vernon snid, in her fi nu,
Urge, benoficent way; "at least in this
case.   The -ithun X don't know."
Captain Morgan came und stood botween his wife and the visitor. To be
aure, it waa to the firo he went, by
Which he posted himself with his back
to it, aa is the right of every Englishman. His countenance woro o troubled look, very different from the happiness of his wife's. He stood like a
barrier betwoen them, a non-conductor intercepting the pauago of gonial
sentiment.
"My dear Catherine." he said, with
a little formality. "I don't wish to be
unkind, nor to .check your kindness;
but you must recollect that though he
li poor KatieV hoyt ■*»," poor soul,
had nothing to ■ do with the upbringing of him, nnd that, in abort, we
know nothing about him, tt hai been
ny prin^yt)ijktib*;of !atey«us|
to insist upon living my own life."
"All thnt, my kind old uncle, is understood," said Cathorino. "Thero
aro a great many people, I believe,
who nre better than their principles,
and you are one of them—that is all.
I understand that you know nothing
about him. You are only a man,
which is a groat drawback, but it is
not to be helped; wo know, though
we have Been no more osahim than you
have.   iBn't it so?"
She leaned forward a little, and
looked across at the old lady, who
smiled and nodded in return. Old
Mrs. Morgan was not disturbed by her
husband's disagreement. It did not
even mako her angry. She took it
with perfect composure, beaming over
her own discovery of hor grandson,
and the additional happinesB it gave
her.
"My old man," she said, "Cathorine, hns his own ways of thinking—
we nll know that; and sometimes he
will act upon them, but most commonly not. Ouo thing I know, he
will never shut his doors on his own
flesh nnd blood, nor deny his old wife
what is hor greatest pleasure—the
thing that has been wanting to me all
the time—all tho timo! I scarcely
know what it was. And if the boy
had been distant or strange, or showed
thnt ho know nothing about us, still I
Bhould have boon content. I would
havo Baid, 'Let him go; you woro
right, Rowley, and not I.' But it is
not so," the old lady went on, after a
pause; "there's love in him. I remember when the girls were married
thero wns something I always Boemed
to want. I found out what it wns
whon tho first grandchild was burn,
It was to feel n baby in my arms
again—that was what I wanted. I
don't know, Cathorino," Bho added,
with humility, "if you will think tliat
foolish?"
"If I will understand-—Uut is what
you are doubtful of—for I am.nn old
maid, nnd never had, bo to speak, a
baby in my arms; but I do understand," fluid Catherine, with a little
moisture in her oyes, "Well, and
this great, handsome follow, a mnn of
the world, iB ho your baby that you
wanted bo muoh?"
"Pooh!" snid tho old captain. "Tho
grent advantage of being an old maid,
as you Bay, is thnt you are above tho
prejudices of paroutage. It is possible to get you to henr reason. Why
Bhould my life bo overshadowed per-
manently by tho action of another?
That is what I ask, Why should I
be responsible for one who is not ino,
nor of my mind?"
"Listen to him! You would think
thnt was nll he knows," said Mrs.
Morgan; "there, is no fathoming that
old mnn, my dear.''
"What I have to say iB, that we
know nothing of this young mau,"
snid the captain, shaking his shaggy
head ns if to shako off his wife's comments, "You will exercise your own
judgment, but don't take him on mine,
for I don't know him. Ho is well
enough to look at; ho has plenty to
sny for himself; I daro suy ho is clever
enough. Form your own judgment
and act upon that, but don't come and
sjy it's our fault if he disappoints you;
thnt is nil I have to say. Excuse tne,
Catherine, if I take a walk even whilo
you are here, for this puts mo out—
I allow tt puts me out," Captain Morgan said.
"What has made him take this
idea?" said Miss Vernon, when Gap-
tnin Morgan hod hobbled out.
"Oh, my denr, lie has Iub fancies
liko another. We havo hnd many
things to put up with, and he thinks
whon it comes to the second generation—he thinks we bave a right to
peace nud quiet in our old age.1'
"And so you have," snid Catherine,
gravely, "so you have."
Shu did not ask any questions.
Neither sho nor ony ouo knew whnt it
wns with which, in the other part of
their lives, theso old people hnd been
compelled to "put up." Nor did tho
old lady sny. She answered, softly,
"Yes, I think so too. Peace is sweet,
but it is not life."
"Some people would sny it was better."
"Thuy never knew, those ..people,
what life was. I like to see the children come and go—one here, one there.
One in need of your sympathy, another of your help, another—oh, Catherine, even that!—of yonr pardon, my
dear." This mndo her pause and
brought, what was su minimal, a little
glistening moisture to tho old lady's
eyes. She was silont for a moment,
nnd smiled, perhaps to efface the impression Bho hnd made. "If you can
do nothing olse fur them, you can
nlwnys do thnt," she said,
Cathorine Vernon, whu wan sixty-
fivn, und know herself to be an old
woman, looked at the other, who was
over eighty, as n girl looks nt hor
mother—wondering at hor strange experiences, feeling herself a child in
presence of a knowledge that is not
hers. She had not experience enough
to understand this philosophy. She
looked a littlo nt hor companion,
wondering, nnd then she said, Booth-
■n8-yi
"Wo must not dwell upon painful
subjects. This young fellow will not
nppenl to you so. What I like in him
is his independence. Ho has his own
opinion, nnd ho oxpresuos it freely.
His society will be vory good for my
nephew Edward. If he has a fault—
nnd, indued, I dnu't think that boy
hns many—it is that he is diffident
about his own opinion, Ronald, if ho
stays loug onough, will help to
curo him of that. And how does
tlio other nffair go on?" she added,
with a perceptible pause, and in a
voice which wns a little constrained.
"**«   -1..-.M    tlioru   in   grent   triumph
next door."
Old Mrs. Morgan shook hor hend,
"It is curious whnt mistakes wo all
make," she Baid.
"Mistakes! Do you mean thnt I
nm mistaken nbuut tho triumph? Well,
they lmvo very good reason. I should
triumph, too, if, having boen turned
out of a great houso liko Mrs, John,
I managed to get baok again, nnd re-
coyer all thut I hnd lost by menus of a
thing so entirely my own creation na a
daughter. Evon n son would hnve
been different, I supposo. You know
I am not n judgo on that point," Gatherum Raid, with a laugh.
The old lady continued to shako har
head slowly.
"Tho only one that has not mado a
mistake is Harry. If ho could have
cot what he wanted, it would havo
beon the best thing thnt cuuld havo
happened. There is no complication
nbout that. Por liim it would hnvo
been the host."
"Do you inunii to say," snid Cathorino, her eyes lighting up with that
firo of curiosity and interest which
overcomes oven the languor of ago—
du you mean to say that ho is not to
got what he wishes? Oh, this is too
much! That girl is eaten up with
pride. What is aim saving horself for,
I wonder?   What can ahe expect?"
