H.nil.y  Evening-, Sept. 13, I8M,
About two weeks ago England
spent a great deal of money on some
costly naval experiments by which
we ought to profit, An immense
boom blocking the entrance to Mil;
ford Haver), supported, by shore batteries and submarine mines and ilu-
minated I by elefctmc search lights;
proved insufficient to keep the.fleet
{rom*- forcing a passage. Smoke
rafts vailed the scene, and. under
cover of the darkness'thus secured
the torpedo-boats blew up the boom,
destroyed the mines by countermines, and one of the Jironclada
passed • through. the; ruins of! j the,
boom without difficulty, ahd almost'
unseen from the shore, The conclusion deducible is that it is very difficult to keep a modern fleet out of a
harbor. Forts and fixed obstructions' at the entrance aro hot sufficient. The. harbor itself must be
made too dangerous for hostile occupancy. . Steel turrets, heavy guns,
floating armored batteries, and submarine torpedo-boats colnbined offer
the best defense according to present lights.:' Farragut's passage of
the masonry forts and fixed obstructions below New Orleans demonstrated1 the inutility of such defensive works at tliat time, and since
then: ihe development of the attack
has at least kept pace, with that of
the defense. The exposed condition
of our seaports is emphasized by
these English experiments.— S. F.
Tlie Sllfc Trade.
Having gobbled up the American
tea trade, it seems that the 0. P. R.
people I may possibly turn, their attention now to the silk trade. Mr.
Everett Fraser was interviewed by
a News reporter at Vancouver the
other day and' gave some interesting pointers qu this question. He
said' thi shipment qf tea to Canada
and ; the eastern | states .over the 0..
P. R. had resulted, so satisfactorily
that the feasibility of handling the
silk , trade by j the. same route had;
been suggested. ' The total number
of bales, of raw silk imported annually into tho United States from
Japan is fast approaching to 20,000,
the value of each bale being $600,
or a total of $12,000,000. Statistics show that the exact yearly import is put down as worth $10,900,-
000, but as it is'increasingannually,
we can safely, assume that next,
year's I imports: r into: the United
States will |be fully of. the rajue of
$12,000,000. ' ^Ten-eighth.* of Uie
present business is done by the Pacific Mail nnd Occidental and Ori'
ental steamship icompiinies, tho avon-
age price paid for freight being eight
cents fast, pound gross, or $12 per
bale. On 20,OOD;'bttles;-the estimated import for next year—<"ra*
$2,000,000 can be put down as. paid
out' for freight alone from Japan to
the. United State!. Mr. Fraser,
who acts as .agent in Japan for the
purchase of silk for theJgreat fitni Of
ilelding Brothers ifc .(Jo., sajd there
was no reason whatever why' -the
greater part of this business should
not come ovor the Canadian Pacific.
Ihe)' tranalriptnent of i teu has been
so successfully managed in every
way by the company that an.Jeflwt
will be made to turn the channel of
the silk trade into the same direction! Tho raw silk is consigned to
New York, Puterson (NeV Jefsey),
Florence (Massachulettsj, Allen-
town (Pennsylvania), and other
eastern towns'where there at*'large
factories for .^hanging the silk into
the merchantable' article. ' Mr. Fraser thinks that.there »fill be ho difficulty whatever in diverting a large
portion of the' business 'and givil^f
the Canadian Pacific the benefit of
it. • air. feasor's visit) to'Vancbuver
wak\ fprtho puipose of looking over
the* townsite, the situation of. its
docks and whiffajje; audi tl)« navigation of Burrard Inlet, with the
object of reporting the results of his
inspection to the, underwriters who
issue the'iisks ori the tea ships. ' He
is «0 pleased'witli his; visit to' Van:
coBver, that he Will report :f*vt*»bly i
to, the insurance agonts on his in.
tura tij.t|ie east. Mr,.Fraser [-pint:
ed oiit the advantage which accrued
to ships being chartered with car-
goes to Vancouver. Both the W.
B. Flint and the Flora P. Stafford,
whi(i^'IW*i'^B4%ite"»: with teas, have
seourej reWrt Ircigiitsf in tlie shapd:
of lumber from the Moodyville sawmill;, 'M.lHtJS Mr^JWJBnt .jMd
be made with all the other vessels
coming intd tlie Inlet." Several bf
the ship»'V*l* have lately arrived
here to load lumber in Coal Harbor
have-cMne in tatst. thit thi* will
not co*jt^«d fct long, as the Orient
trade, Via' Buuratd Inlet, whicli has
grown into exiahmoe eimply and
solely through' the opening. of the
0. P. R., will ensure all ships bound
btxim&mmwfflM
the incominj* voyage, but also freights
on the outward journey.

Tbe Elections.
There is always so much speculation with respect to political movements, and the habit of misrepresentation has become so common
among regular party politicians,
that one cannot always be sure of
finding the truth. It is, therefore,
somewhat doubtful whether it is a
fact, as stated, that the Dominion
elections had boen fixed for this
fall and have been postponed until
next year in consequence of the
Haldimand defeat. These statements, of course, have been put forward by the "Reform party, aud are
denied by the other side. The object of making them is, we suppose,
to cause the belief that the Conservative party is afraid to face a general election on a fair and equal
basis. It is supposed that there are
enough weak-kneed persons always
to turn an election where the parties are at all evenly balanced, and
that these persons may be counted
upon generally to go with the party
that is expected to win. If there
is a well-grounded belief that the
Conservative party will suffer defeat'
at the next election, therefore, that
belief itself will bring about the
very thing by carrying the weak-
kneed voters who hold the balance
of powers There is very little room
to doubt that the result both in
Chanibly and Haldimand has been
a genuine surprise and a grievous
disappointment to the party now in
power., It is no secret that both
these constituencies were reckoned
safe places to be opened, and it was
even stated that the result would
have a most excellent "moral" effect
upon tiie general elections that were
to follow. ' When dhambly went
Reform, it was decided that the issue
of ii \mt for Haldimand must not
take place until the final revision of
the new voters' lists. In that constituency a considerable number of
Indians had been enfranchised, and
it was confidently supposed that
these new voters, being wards of the
government, would go almost Solidly
for the govornment party. This
expectation has not been realized.
It is stated that a majority of the
Indians did vote the Conservative
ticket, but in spite of that the Reform candidate obtained a majority
said to be over 200. These two
elections gain apecial importance
from the fact that in both of the
contests the execution of Riel and
the government's responsibility for
the Indian rebellion were made the
most'j*f, tuid 1>oth parties were anx-_
ious to know what influence these
questions were going to have on
party polities. The result seems to
indicate that the "bloody shirt" is
not'- likely to act as a powerful Conservative force after all. It was
believed that Mr. Blake's attitude
on tte Riel question in parliament
would lose a great many votes for
his party in Ontario, where there is
a powerful Orange sentiment, and
that the reaction there would be a
sufficient set-off against the bolters
oCQuebcc. But there are few men
who will not give Mr. Blake credit
for honesty of purpose. Although
many may differ with him on this
question, there are other questions
of equal import upon which they
are in accord. It must be confessed
that there is grave reason to suspect
that public affairs at Ottawa are not
in as healthy a state as could be
wished. There have been a multitude of scandals of greater or less
magnitude cropping up in the various departments, and, we are afraid
there has been some corruption even
in high places. It is not best that
any powerful administration should
remain too long in office, especially
when, there are such large armies of
political hacks about the capital always looking out for spoils. The
administration of Sir John Macdonald has been one of marked pro
gross. It is'hot at all probable the
C. "JPy JR, Would be even near completion if this government had not
been; in power. But these rapid
strides in progress have cost a great
deal of money, and increased the
publio debt to a point where there
is cause for serious alarm. Thc corruption and extravagance that have
crept into the administration have
become powerful weapons in the
hands Of its opponents, and were
used with such effect in Haldimand
as to carry the constituency.
Whether this result may be fairly
claimed as an index of the general
elections we do not know. Reformers claim that it may, but Conservatives declare that it may not.

A Bonanza.—An esteemed correspondent, writing concerning the Foster mine at Clinton, says that there is
no desire or wish on the part of the
owners of this mine to circulate any
reports in reference to it. Every semblance of the Cariboo excitement of
1878 will be avoided. Nothing but
the naked truth, the bare facts, will
be published. There are no shares for
ssle. Those who have already invested ih the mine will; in case of failure, be able to bear the hns without
any inconvenience, i The ledge has
been known since 78, when two tunnels were run into tbe vein and assays
made.' We failed, however, to convince outsiders of the quality of the
rook, partly becauso the gold is carried In sulphurets, and partly from
the great difficulty in getting machinery on the ground. The ledge is
situated at the foot of Pavilion mountain, -exposed for several hundred feet
on the company's ground. To the
north and south the rein is piuched
out, and two olaims south are considered valueless. ' Our assays are satisfactory, the oompany having a perfect
outfit here. It now rests with the
chlorinatorto prove, when he has all
appliances on the ground adapted to
the purpose, and the most modern
machinery, that he can savo'the same
amount of gold we do by assay. At
the present time we are cutting a road
five miles with white labor, so as to
bring in machinery this fall, and ex-
peot to ?iave the stamps kt Work this
season. Much will depend on the
weather. The mine is on an immense
slide, surrounded by precipices. Immediately under our tunnels, about
-200 feet, is the Fraser rivev canyon,
and opposite is a bluff rook, inaocessi-
ble mountain. The place Is a nil de
sac. in which we have just room enough
for machinery and workmen's quarters. Nature hai arranged tho Issure
just where most pluck is required to

Fruit ahd Root Exhibit.—It has
beep decided to make a spocial exhibit
of colonial fruit and roots st the Col*
onial Exhibition in London, and collections aro now being made throughout
the count**' for that purpose, This

and will cnntimio until tlie close of
tho exhibition, the 30th of the montli.
Mr. John Jessop is now in this city
for tho purposo of obtaining samples
of fruit and roots suitable for the exhibition, nnd we hope he will havo tho
hearty lo-opomBon of all who haVe
anything worthy of a plaoe in the collection, "ho articles from tliis city
aro to b ft at the store'of Mr. C.
(t. Major at Mr. Marshall Sinclair's, whoi they will he paokod
by Hr. Hutoiu -son, ahd thar must bo
sent in boforo next TlrartJay. Of
course the quantity will he limited.
Half a dozen of each sort of fruit and
vegetable will bt-sufficient, Mr. Jessop has met with much encouragement
so far. The island collection lias been
completed and is ready for shipment.
On tlio North Ann contributions wero
obtained from Messrs. Ethridge, Boyd,
Kilgour, and Rowling. On the South
Arm- Messrs. W., H. Udnur, Tiros.

Mr. Jessop leaves to-morrow for Chilliwhack and the interior, whero ho
will continue his collections.'. It is to
bo hoped tho exhibit from this province wul bo made as perfect as possible.
Probably we shall novor have anothor
opportunity of making known so widely the agricultural and horticultural
resources of British Columbia. Mr.
Jessop reports tho following contributors in the city to day: 0. J. Robson,

She is now 38 days out from Yokohama. Following the Zoroya will be
the Carrie Delap with25,000 packages,

Next to her will be the German bark
Bylgia, which is to sail ou Wedneaday
next, the 16th inst., with 0,000 packages, and will be due at the terminus
about the end of October. The combined value of the cargoes of the three
ships yet to arrive and the two which,
have already delivered consignments is
placed at {2,000,000, which indicates
in a slight measure the great possibilities of the trade.

England's Gun scandal.
-, London, Sopt 8.—The government
..was forced to make an important surrender on tho gun scandal question
last night Smith, secretary of state
for war, after a long and stubborn resistance to the demand for an investigation, v...j compelled to promise tlio
appointment of a commission to investigate the subject. Startling disclosures would. have been inudo had the
government not yielded. The jobbery
connected with tlio supply of ordnance
to the nnvy, according to statements
privately circulated in the house, is
'almost incredible. High officers and
officials occupying positions of trust
.are charged with boing in collusion
with manufacturers to cheat thc country by passing off inferior weapons at
enormous cost, and with transactions
doliberatelyroducing tho fighting power
of tho nation for tho sake of pocketing
unlawful gain.
Mock Modest)'.
Boston, Aug. 31.—The oiroum-
stancos attending the drowning of
Harry Smith of Chelsea, at Lake Idle-
wild, Wexhain, Friday, illustrates tho
idiotio folly, whieh takes possession of
many people when in the presence of
a drowning human being. Smith,who
was twelve years old, was spending his
vacation at Hamilton. On Friday ho
went. In swimming with companions,
was taken with cramps and called for
aid. Not far from the spot where
Smith was struggling was a boat containing two young men and twu young
women. The former started to row
to Smith's assistance, but the young
women were suddenly smitten with a
senseless modesty, and refused to allow their escorts to row near to Smith.
" You shall not, you shall not," they
screamed, "take that nnked man into
this boat." The young men were compelled to row the females ashore before
helping Smith, and on reaching the
spot Smith had sunk for the laat Hum.
His body was recovered in an hour,
but all efforts at resuscitation were
futile.

This Afternoon's Despatches.
Special to the foliimltliui.
Lokdon, Sept. 13.—The sculling match
Iwtween Geo. W. Lee, of New Jersey
aud Weil Matterson, ths Australian oarsman, took place to-day on the Thames
championship course and was won by
Lee,
Latbr—Wind was light and tide
faat; only a few spectators witnessed
the raee. Betting Wore the start was
7 to 4 in favor of Matterson. The
men got away even, eaeh rowing 40
strokes to the minute. Matterson
gradually crept ahead, and led by half
a length at the oreek. Lee, however,
increased his exertions, aud drew up
on a level with hia opponent at Crater
cottuge steps, and when Walder's was
reached he had the lead by one
length. A desperate struggle followed, both men still rowing 40 strokes
to the minute. Matterson was again
even with Lee at Orabten, aud led by
half a length at Hammersmith. Lee
then spurted again and regained the
lead, when Matterson stopped, totally
exhausted. His time to Hammersmith waa 8 minutes and 42 seconds,
ten seconds better than previous records.
London, Sept. 13.—It is remarked
that although the Emperor Francis Joseph is at Preseniepo, in Galicia, and the
Czar ib at Brest, Litovick, in Poland, not
more than 250 Kilometres apart, neither
has given any sign of a desire or intention of meeting tlie other or greeting even
by deputy. The. Frd Preset of Vienna
complains of the Czar's breach of court*
tsy towards Austria, It says it is not
worthy that the Russian military man*
euvres are - taking place at the precise
comer of the liussku dominions which
would be the principal theatre of war in
the event of a Russian conflict with Austria. Francis Joseph is at the same time
reviewing an equal number of Austrian
troops, the total being ovor 60,000 men,
at a point which would naturally be
chosen as the Austrian base ut operation
in the samo event. "Tbus we .-■ee," says
the Fi'el- Presse, "two rival camps and
two rival cenrts almost Within signal of
each other,"
London)'Sept. 13.—Elaborate ptecau-
tioas were taken to protect tlie czar during, bis journey to t'jltuid to witness the
army maneuvers. Soldiers armed with
loaded rifles lined the railway train,
which was divided in. three ructions,
When passing stations the windows were
closed and thc blinds drawn down, in order to prevent discovery of the carriage
occupied by the czar. After thc in.uieu-
vers the czar will go to Spalas, Poland,
when similar precautions will be Uken
for his protection, 50,000 soldiers being
utilized for this service.
London, Sept. 13.—Nothing is known
in official circles hi regard 1 ■ Prince
Alexander's visit to Knglun . The
prince will renin hi at Jugenheim for the
present,   his h*\i!f!i   being shattered.
Great excitement has been corned at
Chatham by the unexpected re.-t-ipt of
urgent ordors from the admiralty to expedite the completion of men-of-war.
Relays of workmen are to be omployetl
day and night if necessary. This activity is regarded as an indication of possible continental complications.
London, Sept. 13,—Tho nowAuier-
ioao church, Holy Trinity, in Paris, was
opened yeaterday, twelve hundred persons attending the morning service.
Paris, Sept. 13.-—The French authorities at Havre have just seized eleven
fishing boats for infriuging on the international maritime and fisheries laws in
■ tho channel. Le Paris says: "Tlie
boats were seized in reprisal for the ce*
cent arrest by the British authorities of
French fishing boats oir Folkestone, on
the other side of the channel.
London, Sept. 13.—James Round,
member uf parliament for Harwich,
conservative, has givou notice of his
intention lo call the attention of the
government and house of commons to
the seizure by the French authorities
at Havre uf an Knglish tithing vessel.
I Dover, Sept. 13.—The yacht Volts,
propelled by electricity, started hence
across the channel to Calais on her
trial trip to-day. When hist seen
from the shore she was six miles out,
and was doing well.
Dublin, Sept: 13.—Threo moonlighters raids took placo last night, all
of them dole to tne headquarters of
Gen. Sir Redvors Buller. Wm. Cuffe,
bailiff, who had made himaulf very obnoxious h} his cruel treatment of women wii 'in he h-id recently eviVcd,
went early to attend mass in Bellnire
chapel. When men and women who
weru congregated in tlio --'lapel noticed Cuffe's presence "-y became
very indignant, and tho man ..a
dragged from, the building. When
they got him outside they turned him
over to the*women, who were begning
fora chance at hiin. Among them
were 12 that Ouffe had evicted, and
tliese were furious and beat hiin unmercifully. Subsequently a priest,
who wu also president of a local
branch of the National Longue, admitted the battered bailiff to hoar
mass, and this mercy for tho unfortunate man has almost caused rebellion
against the priest.

The Confederation Lift.
' The annual report of this solidly prosperous Canadian institution will be found
in another column. The facte revealed
in the accounts and the Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecomiums which
the shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanks to the resolute
manner in wbioli the Company has declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring busineaB, the work-
ing expenses of the company bear to the
total income the very small ratio of between 17 and 18 per cent. A point attesting the soundness of the finances of
the Company is the fact that the interest
income is sufficient to pay ihe death
claims—whicli in a company of the age of
the Confederation Life is something to be
proud of. The assets and liabilities ara
set forth in minute detail, and the tables
show that, after making allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, there is a Burplus of §282,199
over liabilities and capital combined.
The increase in tbe assets in tho last year
was $260,390. So much for what can be
done by rigid adherence to what tbe
President defined. as the true polioy of
the Company, viz:—"To keep Its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, unwise, or extravagant expenditure for the
sake merely of increasing new business."

Tlie New Theology.
The now theology has neither terrors
nor cliarmB for Mr. Moody, -who still
preaches the old theology with a vigor
and sincerity tliat command the respect
even of those who do hot agree with
him, "I would like," he said the

"to see one of these new lights, these

Grace Darling's Sister.
On Friday last Grace Darling's only
sister died in her littlo homo undor
the shadow of Biunborough Castle,
within sound of the wild waves that
beat against Holy Island and tho rock
tliat wrecked the Forfarshire. The
simplo and pious old lady to thc last,
like tlio heroine horself, could not understand why so much had 'been said
about the plain act of duty which made
tho -family name immortal. She has
boen laid in tho seaside churchyard,
close to her sister who died so young
forty years ago and whoso marble effigy
lies in the soa, wind and sun, with her
oar upon tho folded arm. A graystone
wall divides tho thin gmsi of the holy
ground from tho bleached and pallid
growth of the ,sand dunes. For the
dark and strong basalt of this Northumbrian coast, into which is built
tho tremendous pile of tho castle, is
everywhere heaped with the sands of
many storms. If ever there was a
"wide-watered shoro" straight out of
Milton's visionary mind, it is this,—

One Egg too Many.
An old, well-to-do farmer near Bellows Falls, Vermont, recently furnished fin instance of exactness of dealing
which establishes his claim to ingenuity, if not generosity. He furnishes
buttor and eggs tho yoar round to
regular customers, who rate his commodities as A1, whicli have never boon
known to fall short one grain in tho
quantity paid for. Neither does thu
close-dealing marketman consent to
any variation to the advantage of the
customer. With him business is business. Counting out tho weekly simply
of several dozen eggs to-one of his
long-time patrons, he found himself
with one egg too many. Ho re-counted the entiro basketful carofully, but
still the superfluous egg perplexed him.
He held it up against tho light, passed
it restlessly from ont hand to tho
other, reiterated solemnly and aad-.v.-
"There's one egg too numy." The imperturbable house-wife, whoeitbt1. did
not or would not appreciate his nilein-
ma, said coolly, '-Well, what will you
do with iff" He hebitateda moment
asif pressed almost to liberality, then
suddenly mastering tlio situn fcioi i,
cracked the egg and—sucked it.

Tbfc Greatest Hallway Station.
Tliere is in course of erection in
liondo* Bug., probably the largest
railway station in the world. It is the
Somerstown goods station of the Midland railway, the site of which covers
an area of upwards of fourteen acres,
occupied until recently by an urban
population of moro than 4,000 peraoiiB.
The clearance of the site* involved the
demolition of hundreds of houses. In
1877 the railway obtained an act of
parliament under which they secured
powers for the purchase of the site,
but it was not until about 1882 that
the ground for the depot was finally
cleared-;'The property coBt the company a sum approaching £1,000,000.
The Euston road frontage is about 300
feet in length, extending from the
Midland road. The area of tlio land
widens considerably from the Euston
road northwards, until at its northern
boundary in Phoenix street H is more
thau GOO feet in width. Tbo. gutting
in of the foundation involved some
heavy excavations; and near Lo the.
bed of old Fleet river it was'found
requisite to sink cylinders to a depth
of 40 feet through soft mud, in order
to arrive nt a sufficiently firm buttom.
The structure will comprise two
floorsj the grbund floor and thc floor
above it, and as muoh of tlio traffic is
intended to be marshalled aud arranged on the ground flour, there will
be hydraulic lift* by whioh the railway
wagons will be lowered and raised.
The upper floor is the cliief structural
feature in the building. It is constructed chiefly of iron over its entire
area of fourteen acres. This upper
floor is being constructed at an elevation of eighteen feet above the ground
floor, and as the columns which carry
it have to support a dead weight of
ballast in addition to heavily laden
goods wagons, they have necessarily
been made of exceptionally great
strength. There are 400 of these columns, weighing 5,000 tons; 4700 tons
of main girders, and 8300 tons of cross
girders, -The flangu plates required in
connection with these girdors are nearly 40 milos in length, whilst the floor
plates weigh between 950 and 1000
tons. Upwards of ^0,000 tons of iron
will, therefore be used in the construction uf this flour. A large blook of
warehouses is about to be built on the
west or OaBU.lton-Btreet side of tho depot; it will be upwards of 400 feet in
length and four stories in height. The
estimated cost of these great ■ works
when completed is sot down at the
sum of £2,500,000.

Thore is said to bo an American lady
in England who is engaged in teaching
to English ladies the true principles of
physical grace. It is alleged to be her
theory that "all motions of the arms
Hhould proceed from,* iho shoulder
downward, and not from the fingers
upward, and that all movements ex-
pressivo of feeling ought to bo in harmony with ono another." If any lady,
after mastering that theory, should
still doubt Iier ability to exhibit tho
perfection of physical gwi-b- Ph*- pught
notwithstandig to consider herself au
amazingly deep-sighted and ulever woman to have mastered that theory.
English sailors attempted to catch a
fourteen-foot shark off Natal, but the
shark snapped thoir line in two, and
swallowed bait, hook, and all. After
losing several hooks, the anglers triod
a piece,of venison in which they hod
put a-ball of gun-cottoni This: was
connected by wire with a boat's battery, and just as the.shark was in the
act of seizing tlie venison tlio charge
was exploded. There is a degreo of
persecution which, oven a shark cannot
endure. Tho jaws of the monster
were shattered, and it rolled over upon
its back and sank.
