_A.£tei- thc personal heroism of
Gordon, nothing in the whole Sou-
clan^ lousiness commands admiration
more than -the conduct of tho garrison of JCnssa.la. TSerber and Khartoum lauve fallen, and almost the
•entirti country lias heen subjugated
X*y tiie barbaric Mahdi. But the
•tjji.llri.Tit defenders of ' Kassala, al-
though knowing that 'Knglantl and
-^*w>'Pfc ltn-ve abandoned them to
destruction, still hold tho fort.
More ; they sally out whenever provisions ancl ammunition run low,
ffvxicl replenish their stores from the
sacked camps of their besiegers.
ITrtcl its garrison been made of such
stutT, IChartoum need not have fall-
•e-mt- Kut there was only one man
iit   the  ill-fated city.—JV. Y. Tribrwie.
a maritime power would unquestionably be moro of a menace to tho
Indian Empire than it would in tbo
eastern Mediterranean. Persia is
hopelessly decrepit and utterly corrupt. To conquer her would bo
easy, to buy Iier easier still.y-77ec
Week.
Tho .i<re:it thunder storm which
swept over Mt. McGregor and culminated \x\ one mighty crash, as if a
hundred great guns had been dis-
charged, and the lightning which
played about the cottage where Gen.
Cirant's remains lie in state, were
tho ^tting finale of his heroic life.
I-Le had Heard the thunder of paries
of artillery while a military chief-
"tsxiri.. _A. hundred great guns had
sounded in his ears in the chief bat-
tles which he bad fought. He won
lxis victories by sheer force of terrific
cannonading, as at Shiloh, Vicks-
V»nrg and Fort I>onelson. It was
sixicl of Napoleon that ho searched
for the weakest placo in the opposing- army, and at that point he would
concentrate a hundred guns, making
tlio very heavens tremble with the
thunder of his cannon in preparation for the final charge. Gen.
G rant sought for the weakest points
in the breastworks and fortifications
of tlie enemy. He thundered there
until he had battered down all opposition. Tho old h'ero will lead no
more armies. Ete will never again
hoixr tho thunder of a hundred cannons in defense of his country. But
nature herself paid a tribute to the
cl-ectcl warrior lying at Mt. McGregor. It made the heavens ring with
tt, grander explosion than that of a
hundred guns. The lightning played
about tlie casket of the dead warrior as a halo of glory. His form
was not touched—only wreathed
"with the brightness of an insufferable light, while the attendants fell
on their faces as dead men. When
the heavens do honor to the greatest
warrior of modern times, no honor
■will be withheld whicli a grateful
country can otter to his memory.—
* »Su   -tV.   JSitlletiiw.
If the prime minister of Canada
had recently described the American government in a public speech
as morally either a bankrupt or a
swindler, and the minister of marine
and fisheries had wound up a series
of similar compliments to thc cabinet at Washington by telling them
that they lied as only Yankees
could, we should be prepared for a
little friction in the fisheries negoti-*
ations. Changing the persons, we
must expect a little friction in the
negotiations with Hussia about the
delimitation of Afghanistan. Lord
►Salisbury "will also deem it necessary, no doubt, to pay a decent tribute in. the shape of resolute rhetoric to the Jingoism to which beforo
his accession to office he appealed.
T5ut there can be no doubt that he
accepts the Oladstone settlement,
arid -we cannot believe that there is
siny real danger of a renewal of the
quarrel. Stockjobbers, of course,
are at work. At last there is a
recognition of the fact thaff there is
a regular manufacture of Russopho-
bic ne-ws. the central works of which
are in the Semite press of Vienna
and TSorlin. It cannot be denied,
ho"%vever, that i-tussia is always kept
in a state of restlessness by her desire to reach an open sea, and that
her attitude is likely to be always
more or less hostile to the power
which makes it a settled rule of its
p>olicy to bar her way. That her
pressure on the northern boundary
of India has for its object not the
invasion of Hindostan, but the removal of the obstacle to her progress elsewhere, is the opinion of
many good judges, and seems at
least a plausible supposition. She
can reach an open sea at the Dardanelles, on the Gulf of Bcanderoon
or on the Persian Gulf. To repel
hor from the Gulf of Scanderoon
•was probably the main object of
I-5ritish statesmen in occupying* Cyprus and adding tliat isolated possession, to the burdens and dangers
of the empire. Her latest movements, if they are correctly reported, seem to point in the direction, of the Persian Gulf, in which
case, if "Kngland persists in her
policy of exclusion, trouble may
-co tne in. that quarter. On the Per-
.sian Gulf tlie presence of   Russia ns
The Pall Mall was started hy Mr.
Smith of the famous publishing firm
of Smith A Elder. Frederick Greenwood, who originated and planned
tho paper, was its editor, and his
brother, James (freenwood, gave it
a good start by a graphic sketch of
workhouse, life, signed, "An Amateur Casual." Liberal in its general
tone, the Pall Mall, however, supported with enthusiasm the foreign
policy of Loiti'Bcacbnsfielcl "as tong
as that statesman's colleagues allowed him to have a policy," Many
thoughtful essays upon the Eastern
question appeared "in its columns
from the pen of its earnest editor.
About a year ago Mr. Smith retired
from the proprietorship in favor of
his son-iu law, Henry Yates Thompson, who was at one time private
secretary to Earl Spencer (when
that nobleman was lord-lieu tenant
of Ireland under Mr. Gladstone's
former administration), and also a
colleague of Mr. Gladstone in the
parliamentary contest for Lancashire. Mr. Thompson desired so
radical a change to be made in the
policy of the paper that Mr. Greenwood resigned his place, and on his
announcing that he would continue
his Pall Mall policy in a new journal, to be called tho St. James Gazette, nearly the entire staff* of the
Pall Mall, including every writer of
importance in all departments of
the paper, followed his resignation
with their own—a proof of the
esprit de corps which exists among
somo of the men who work together
on tho groat pupers. The Pall Mall
has since this secession become an
out-and-out supporter of Mr. Gladstone, under the editorial direction
of John Morley. Lewis Sergeant,
author of "New Greece," who was
Mr. Morley's second in command,
has been succeeded by W. T. Stead,
formerly editor of the Northern
Echo, famous in the political circle*
of Yorkshire, Northumberland and
Durham. Mr. Stead is an enthusiastic Liberal. Leslie Stephen joined
the staff and Anthony Trollope, up
to the time of his death, wrote"
sketches and essays for its pages,
Of late the Pall Mall Gazette has
introduced interviewing on American principles, occasional illustrations and other attractions, and tho
paper has gone up largely in circulation, as it deserved, for it was
bright, clover and readable. During the heat of tho Anglo-Russian
controversy, a month or two since,
it espoused tho causo of Hussia, and
the Times went so far as to suggest
that Russian gold was a factor in
this new departure. Some say the
paper declined in circulation from
this moment, but I doubt it. A
large section of the public commended the paper for its fearlessness and
its honesty. What the popular ver
diet will be on the latest and newest
departure of the Pall Mall Gazette
it is impossible to say. The suggestion of a French subsidy killed the
Morning Chronicle at the height of
its   power.    Open   declarations   of

Sherburne Reformatory.
Dr. Luoy M. Hall, medical luperin-
tendent of MasBachuBotts Reformatory
prison at Sherburne, has published aa
interesting paper on her experience
with patients.
Out of a certain two hundred inebriate women, one hundred nnd twenty-
eight began their ruin with beer;
thirty-seven whiskey; twenty wine;
oight gin; ninety-one began at tho
house of friends; sixty-four in a saloon.
Sixty-seven ./uro Irish, fifty-two Irish-
American, seventeen American, seven
negroes, etc.
The diseased aud depraved condition
of theso women was appalling. Mnny
of those committed commenced drinking while employed at tho mills, in the
surrounding dram-shops, and it is a
grievous crime of mill-owners that they
permit these infamous pests to debauch
their operatives. Beer haa been tlio
most common drink "at first, but one
hundred and eighty-one of the nbovo
had got to use whiskey ns their favorite, and some added chloroform to
make the whiskey hotter. A grent
many of them aro without a vostigo nf
hope as long ns the rumielter is permitted to deal iu human lives and human houIs.—Zion'a Herald.

Thk Harvest in India.—Tho Indian Imrvt'Bt is now completed, nnd
the wheat crop ia reportod to liavo
yielded ahout 7,713,000 tons, or more
than hnlf a million tons in excess uf
the large average out-turn of lulo yearn.
There has been a considerable increaso
of area sown, and over much of tlie
more northerly region the crop hns
been a good one. There is the satisfactory feature, that the agricultural
populations nro themselves gradually
improving in ocudition through this
increasing growth of an nrticlo of large
export. Tho United Kingdom has
taken much less of this year's erop than
it took of the crop of 1883-84. Egypt
and Italy, for the Mediterranean ports
generally, are taking very much larger
proportions than thoy did only throe
or tour years ago. They took of this
year's crop 145,000 tons, against only
04.000 tons iu 1881-82.— Leeds Mer-

It is rumored tliat the Mormons,
disgusted by the enforcement of
federal laws against polygamy, are
proposing to remove tlieir establish**,
ment to Mexico. But how could
Mexico receive and protect a people
whose laws and customs are so conspicuously antagonistic to its own'I
The same friction that has been
brought about in the United States
would he encountered in Mexico. Jn
that country there is :i state religion, and the form of government
is despotic compared to that of tlie
United States. Mormonism would
not be permitted in Mexico for a
month. But tlie very suggestion of
removal indicates that the courts
arc pressing this iniquity in sueh a
way as to make it feci that existence will soon be beyond endurance.
It is not the pqlygamists tlie courts
are nfter, but polygamy.
Although the actual income of
the people of Great Britain has increased from $2,150,000,000 in 1870
to 83,000,000,000 in 1885, it is beyond dispute that tliere has been a
great shrinkage in values both iu
Europe and America. Statisticians
also mention it as a fact that this
shrinkage has chietly affected the
very rich. Vanderbilt has losi
about one-third of his imi ensc fortune within a few years, and .ther
American and European millionaires
have suffered greatly. It is stated
also as a matter of fact ihat w title
the incomes of the very rich have
heen growing less, those of the middle classes have been rapidly increasing. If this process of adjustment should go on for any length
of time it may do much to remove
the inequalities existing among capitalists, and take away one of the
principal causes of tho communistic
tendencies of the present age. These
immense fortunes are a source of
constant irritation and an object of
growing envy to the populace who
are pressed hard sometimes with
hunger. If the source of irritation
should be removed, tbe irritation itself would cease.
Bidding for Ten.
It has already been stated that
the Northeya Pacific Railway people nre making an experiment iu
tlie tea trade. A cargo of tea has
been shipped from China to Tacoma
direct, where it will be placed on
the Northern Railway for New
York. This venture has created
quite a little flutter both in railway
and commercial circles. Hitherto
the Union and Central Pacific have
carried all the through tea that
found its way by rail over the continent. But the Northern has a
shorter route, and its facilities for
handling this trade are not less than
thoseof its competitor. It is stated
tlmt about "5,000,000 lbs. of tea
come to New York evory year from
China, but only about one-third of
that comes by rail. The remaining
two-thirds is brought by water, and
almost the whole of it comes in British steamers. The amount received
each year by tho Union and Central
Pacific railways for currying tea is
snid to be about 81,000,000. But
New York importers say that if
the railway rates were reduced
down to a reasonable point the
great bulk of this trade would come
by rail instead of coming by water,
and the earnings of the railways
would thus be increased by nearly
§2,000,000 annually. Tho new
venture of the Northern has accomplished a larger reduction in Lea
rates than could have been anticipated. No sooner was its scheme
made known than the Central-Union
people issued circulars announcing
sweeping reductions. Ily this cutting of rates it may be that nearly
the whole tea crop will come liy
rail. But there is a new factor in
this tea trade that is ulready making its influence felt. The Canadian
Pacific Railway will soon bo completed,, and its managers have announced before hand that they intend to compete for tlie tea. And
that competition, if vigorously carried on, will undoubtedly have many
circumstances in its favor. Tliere
is no route from China to NewYork
or London anything like so short as
that via the 0. P. R. Tho road,
also, will he opened under exceptionally favorable circumstances, inasmuch as its debt will be less than
that of any other transcontinental
road. It is, therefore, a shorter
and cheaper road than any of its
American competitors, and in the
natural order of things it may he
expected to take a good share of the
tn,   In view of this diversion of
trade the people of San Francisco
are already becoming anxious ; und
even the people of Tacoma seem to
be uncertain how far tho operations
of the C. P. R. may interfere with
their latest shipping experiment.
A Frivolous Controversy.
For some weeks the Victoria Colonist and Times have been prolonging a controversy upon the propriety
of the appointment of Miss Armstrong, of this city, to the position
of principal of the girls' department
of Victoria public schools. Tho dispute has developed into a political
question, and has been conducted
with as much vigor and bitterness
as if the fate of our educational system depended upon the issue. Objection is made against Miss Armstrong that she is ii stranger, and
that her qualifications are not equal
to those of some of the teachers who
will be under her in her new position. Wo believo as a rule no
teacher who has not passed
the requisite provincial examination ought to he allowed to teach
whilo there are ellicient and duly
qualified teachers out of employment. Hence, temporary permits
should be granted with great caution. But whero teachers hold provincial certificates it is most injudicious anil frivolous to urge as a
reason for their rejection that they
have been a shorter time in the
province than other applicants. Any
person who puts forward such an
objection as that admits the extreme
weakness of his case. Wo know
nothing at all about Miss Armstrong's qualilieation?. or of the
qualifications of those who were applicants for tho position to which
she has been appointed. These are
matters which, we suppose, engaged
the attention of the trustees in making a selection. But it seems to us
most ridiculous and childish for the
Thins, or any disappointed teacher,
to make this disappointment a
ground for attacking the government and especially the provincial
secretary. What responsibility has
the government for the actions of a
hoard of trustees elected by the people of Victoria, and what particular
motive can the provincial stcretnry
have for using his official position
to provide a situation for this
"stranger" who doos not even
belong to Ins constituency ? There is
reason in all things, and people are
accustomed to look for a causo
where lhey find an etl'ect. We are
absolutely puzzled lo discover auy
shadow of suspicion of political influence in the case, and there has
not been brought forward in the
discussion any reason why political
influence should have been exerted.
It is a great pity that questions affecting the public interest cannot bo
discussed upon their merits. If the
Victoria trustees have coininitled a
blunder, and made a bad appointment, let thom hear the blame; but
it is most unseemly for newspapers
to be dragging before the public the
name of a young lady who, so far as
we have been able to learn, bears
au irreproachable reputation, and
whose credentials as to literary attainments are certainly entitled to
some consideration. Such foolish
squabbles do a groat deal more harm
than good, aud the effect) of thom
upon strangers seeking a home in
this provinco is especially bad.
Loan Meiound's Opinion.— Lord
Melgund, who went up with the Canadian volunteers to stamp out tlio
North-west rebellion, makes tho following statement in the Canadian Gazette of London, Eng.: —"I think very
highly of thom indeed. It would of
course be iionsoiiuc to any thnt thuy
wero equal to a highly-trained force.
They wero raw troops; the oflicers also were rnw; but I certainly think
that the militia contains fi rat-rat« material fur u force, anil toward tho end
of the campaign tlia troops woro got
into very good ordor indeed. Their
marching powers wero quite remarkable. Of course, it should ho remom-
bcrod thnt, not only had none of the
meu been under firo bofore, but that
tho the to wliich they wero subjected
in the Northwest was particularly try*
iny. us the enemy's sharpshooters were
good shots, and had all the advantage
of shelter. Willi rofcrenci- to the
training which the militia undergoes,
I believe that the actual timu of training required by the law Is only twelve
days in two years. Tins fact has
sometimes given rise to adverse comment, hut tlio town eurps iu Canada,
like our own crack corps here- are well
looked after, and dn a good deal ihiire
than tlio twelve days' training which
tho law demands. Wc had town corps
almost entirely with us in onr march
towards Batoche," It was most unfortunate for tho credit of the Dominion,
his lordship pointed out, that lhe representatives uf the lending English
papers apnenred to bu almost wholly
dependent upon American siurces for
thoir Canadian intolltgonce. And the
result was that thoy wero often miule
the medium by which jipnsatinh'nl despatches were transmitted t<> thia conn*
try which afterwards proved lo bave
but liltle justification! A few American correspondents wore un the field of
Itctiou, anil lhey personally wrote vory
correctly of whnt was going ou. Hat
the newspapers they L'Oprcaeiited hud
a tuud'eiicy to exaggerate the uewa
thus recoived.

Thk Inlet Stabbing.-—Mnyor Dickinson and Mr._ B. Springer, J.Ps.,
heard tlie caso of stabbing at Burrard
Inlet roported in our last issuo. The
facts are briefly these: Captain Pass-
more, of ship Albula, called oncof the
sailors into the cabin to mako some
entries of delinquencies; the sailor
told the captain ho lied, whereat the
captain put him out of tliocahiu; two
sailors who wero handling lumber near
by came to the assistance of thoir comrade and assumed an attitude of hostility; tlie captain, knowing that they
had knives about thom, took a sword
and went towards them; he paused,
handed the sword to the mate, who
was iu the cabin, and went out unarmed. One of the sailors named
Davis suddenly drew his sheath knife
and struck at tho captain, stabbing him
severely in the hip, and inflicting twu
slight wounds on bis arm; the captain
called for his pistol and faced his three
antagonists, but made no attempt to
shoot; Davis grabbed tho pistol and
wrenched it from the hand of the captain who shortly afterwards fell down
through loss of blood, Davis was arrested, tried summarily, and sentenced
to 0 months imprisonment with hard
labor and a tine of §100, and costs, or
in default another (i mos. imprisonment. The captain's wound was very
serious, although it is not expected to
prove fatal. All the sailors on the Albula are Negroes,

A Chapter or History.
And It came to pass iu the year ISS.
in tlie beginning of that year, that the
inhabitants of that portion of Biitish
Columbia called Maple Ridge chose them
a council to manage their affairs Iwtter
than had 'beou done iu fonnor times.
And there were gathered together on
that day both meu ami womeii, and when
the day was well spout, and it was told
who had been chosen, then tliu people
"shouted" a great shout. And it came
to pass that somo who were aforetime of
the council stirred np thc old and everlasting discord which alone pirtahieth to
this peculiar people, saying tbey bo no
council. But tho government of thc
country wisely sustained tho council,
Then when the council came together
they straightway appointed themselves
as em n ni itl I'M for the first and second
wards into which tho laud was afore*
time divided, and there wure 4 for tho
second ward, and only 2 for the first
ward, And tho people of the first want
wore wrotli because of this. And certain mon came bofore the council saying,
"Oive us money on our roads," and it
was given them. And others whoso
wants wera greater came and did likewise, but they woro turned away empty
—they wero not of the children of tlie
household. Then angry disputatious
arose ntnonust the council, ami one of
them withdrew himself from them.
Now the Mongolians, a people numerous
as the sand of tho sea, overran tho whole
country, from Viotoria even unto the
Kooky Mountains, and they pitched
their tents ou the Iwrdsts aud in the
coasts of Manle Ridge, Then tho council calleth tlie tithe-gatherer and snid
unto him: "Soost thou not, that there is
no money in our treasury! Oo and gather tribute money from theso heathens,''
And ho said: "Thy servant went unto
them, and thoy being many spake in an
unknown tongue; pemveniuro they plot-
tod to take away mo lift. ' And they
said unto him: "Go again, nud we will
succour thoo," Then armed they all the
chosen men of the land, nnd they camo
unto. tho tents of tho heathen ami thuy
found no tribute money therein, hut
they carried away rico nrtd provender,
md despoiled them of whatever como to
hand. Then came tlie council again together. And the tithe-gatherer said:
"Pay ine, I pray you, my share of tlie
spoil;" but they would not hearken to
liim. Then arose the usual and customary disputatious ot the country. Then
he saitl: "Ye refuse to render to me that
wliich is mine, therefore will I gather no
moro tribute for you." And it came to
pass when the council had again come
together that'one of their number said:
"Why sit we idly here gazetting roads
to every mail's door? Surely the laborer
is worthy of his hire." And tlie paying
did greatly please them. And they said,
wc will ask it at the hands of the people. But the people said nay, ye be
idle half the day; ye have not earned
*ven so much as a penny. Now the
rest of tho acts of the council, if tbey
amend not tlieir ways, shall they not bo
found written in The Columbian?
Yacob.
Froni the beginning of its manufacture
until now not a single ounce of any hut
pure Virginia leaf of the finest quality
has been used in tho "Myrtle Navy"
tobacco. The manufacturers of it have
a settled buliuf that the public cannot he
misled on this point, and tliat any tampering with the quality of the brand
woultl be monetary.loss to them. Thousands of dollars a year saved by mixing
witli an inferior leaf would not repay
them for n doubt on tho part of the public as to the quality of their tobacco.

Church Doors.
Enroth Columbian.—Some time ago
I asked for information through your
columns about a Uw requiring thc doors
of churches and all public buildings to
open outwards, If such a law is on the
statute hook, whose duty is it to see it
enforced? Some one is evidently neglecting his duty, and I think this matter
should bo attended to before any such
catastrophe takes place as the burning
of the church iu Santiago many years
ago, which nwful occurrence ted to the
enactment of the law in question. If
you can answer tbe above question you
will much oblige, yours truly,

The -Guardian's Hub-Editor.
Editou Columbian. — Thc following
communication was sent the Port Moody
Gazelle in reply to an nbusive article
written by the sub-editor of the Guardian, mid ns that individual also controls
the columns of the Gazelle it was not
printed, because not written in a'-gon-
tlemanly" manner. Perhaps it is unnecessary to state that it was not sought
to ubc any very elevated or honeyed
style, because of the very unsavory and
insignificant subject dealt with. C.T.C.
Enron Gazette.—The fossilized old
party who does tho crazy work on the
Guardian and the two first columns of
tho Gazette's editorial page, says the
appellation of sub-editor doos not apply
to him. If it does not I know not what
to call him, having never before met a
man in my newspaper experience in New
York who does the kind of journalistic
work that this erratic individual is engaged in. It seems to be a special de-
Eartment of slander and slush, originated
y the enterprising (?) Guardian, that
this great mind presides ove, This relic
of journalism of a bygone and prehistoric
age never yet in personal argument or
discussion failed to assert tbat his opponent could not "write two lines of good
Knglish." This may he very convincing
ami awfully bright, but when applied
iiidiscrimiuutoly it becomes a trillo mo*
notations;"' "Iu~the present --ease, in the-
estimation of the slush-editor of the
Guardian, this terrible accusation may
have more truth than usual;-)for undoubtedly the papers that I have been
connected with have nothing of the style
of the Guardian, either iu rhetoric or
enterprise; but I venture to assert that
the slush-editor of the Guardian could
never get moro than his picturesque

boro" arc written on every lineament of

Tliis individual criticises the sentence,
"Tliis emblem of liberty may bo seen
for many miles by all vessels coming into tho cliief gateway of the nation." He
evidently can't understand how a vessel
can see anything, Well, I believe a
vessel takes the feminine sender, but no
ouo over yet discovered that it had any
sex; likewise, one vessel Bpeak» another,
but no one evor saw n ship's lungs; likewise, a vessel may sight an object,
according to tlie Lest authorities on the
Knglish language, and uo one one but an
ignoramus, and lie in his dotage, would
venture to criticise such a remark. This
pcrvertcr of good Knglish also tries to
convoy the impression that I measured
the statue of liberty by the cost, Whilo
I think it might be eminently proper to
measure the grandncss ol any work of
Bartholdi by such a scale, the slush-
editor well knows that I stated tlw cost
simply as showing the popularity of the
tuovoment, as the Urge sum necessary
was to a great extent contributed by the
middle and poorer classes.
However, it ill becomes any American
tu uphold tlie dignity of his country in
argument with sueh a ridiculous travesty
on Britisli character as is the slush-editor
of the Guardian,       C, T. Coxovrr.

A QUADRUPLE Force.—Tito reason
why disease is so soon expelled froin the

the Kidneys, driving out all bad humor,
nnd regulating every organic function.

Madrid, Aug, 11.—There were 3,510
new cases of cholera and 1,3-12 deaths

whole truth about the prevalence ot the
scourge, as tiiey arc not complete.
Cholera has made its appearance in Bar-
celn'nn, Balboa, Sauscbastian, Snnandrca,
Iluesca. and Tolsea. Relatives of cholera patients of many of the Spanish
firovinces assault the doctors in tlio be*
icf that they poison their patients.
Just the Thing. — W, J. Guppy,
druggist, of Newbury writes: "Dr. Fowler's Wild Strawberry is just tho thing
for Summer Sickness. I sold out my
stoek three times last summer. Tliere
was a good demand for it." Dr. Fowler's Kxtraet of Wild Strawberry is infallible for Dysentery, Colic, Sick Stomach and Bowel Complaint.
The Steamboat Collision.
CONTINUATION OF THE ENQUIRY.
Edward McDonald, sworn, testified
that lie was deck-hand on tho Enterprise; heard tho Rithet's whistle;
heard tho Enterprise answer the one
whistle; two or'Hhreo minutes after
heard the sloW'-bell; hoard the stop
bell a minute after; a few seconds after this heard the crash; immediately
jumped fiom his berth and ran towards
the ladder; when he got to the foot of
the ladder tho wator was about to his
middle; the distance to ladder from
room is about fifteen feet; got to'tho
deck and cleared away thu starboard
quarter-boat; got it in tho water,
placed passengers in her and put them
on tho Rithet; picked two women out
of the water; the boat wns so crowded
that we had to paddle; the Enterprise
Bank below fun tail rails before thu
boat gut to the water; the rails wore
two or three feet under water; this
was on the starboard sido; she had
listed to starboard on nccount of the
heavy cattle; it was not moro thnn
twenty seconds before tho lower hold
was full of water.—The starboard Wat-
would comfortably hold about 15; had
about 20 in thc boat, with myself and
the bartender; tho fire boats were of
similar size; tho bonts wero all in good
order; four were on dnvita and ouo
spare boat; there were life-preservers
in all parts of the boat, easily got at;
tho life-preservers wero buoyant; those
who had them on floated easily; the
steward and purser fitted preservers
on' ladies when witness was getting
boat out.
Jacob Lens*, sworn, testified that he
was a passenger on tho Enterprise at
tho time of tho collision; was near the
pilot houso and saw thu Rithet coming;
she blew a whistle; the captain of the
Enterprise went to the house aud
answered with ono whistle; thoro was
anothor in tho pilot house; tho captain
remained there until tho collision took
placo; tho captain tried to get to the
right side of the Rithet; at this time
tho steamers wero only a short distance
apart; remained on deck until tho
stoamers touched and then ran for tho
cabin; did not soe Capt. Rudlin or the
mate after thnt; saw the purser helping tho passengers to life-preservers;
pot a life-proserver in the saloon and
went back to near the pilot house;
there was a foot and a half of water on
this deok; had to wado through tho
water nnd climbed from thc Enterprise
to tho Rithet.
Robert Ward, sworn, testified that
ho was a passongeron the Rithut; was
standing aft on the port side; hail just
left Capt. Insley at lunch; saw the
Enterprise coming on our port side
nbout 400 yards distant; her position
was apparently as though she was going to cross tho Rithet's bows; it was
so apparent that a passenger who was
with me remarked it; wo had rounded
Cadboro point; thero was no obstruction botween the two steamers; could
see tho Enterprise from where I stood;
the Rithot kept on her course, her
usual routo to New Westminster; this
was before the whistle blew; the Rithet blow ono whistle; she ported her
helm immediately aftorwtml; they
wero about fifty yards apart then; the
Enterprise blow one whistle, and also
appeared to have ported her helm; it
seemed as though she could not clear
the Rithot; sho wns cumin-- across onr
bows; the Rithet gave two sk'unl bulls;
tho signal and crasli of the collision
wore almost simultaneous,
Laughlan McLean, sworn, testified
that he wns mate of the Rithot at thu
time of the collision; was iu the pilothouse at the timu; at the lime the
whist lu sounded was on tho tipper
deck lashing gangway, about twenty
feet from thn house; tho quarter-master was in the pilot-house at the time;
think the captain was at lunch; after
tlie whistle was blown he turned to
the pilot-house und nskod him if ho
knew tho const wull in that locality;
he said hu did; could not say whether
the Enterprise answered thu whistle;
did not notico anything peculiar in tho
Enterprise's position at the timu the
whistle blew; n couple of minutes
afterward, as he wns (-olug toward the
pilot-house, the quarter-master sang
out, "Ho is going to cross our bow!'
looked ahead nud saw that thu Enter*
nriiu was taking a sheer ncross our
now; she was nbout 1500 yards away;
decided to Btop tlio engine mid reversed
her to full speed; as hu passed the
quartermaster ho asked how tho helm
was and was answered hnrd-n-port;
tried it, nnd found it so; kept the engines reversing fifteen or twenty seconds; thuii stopped Ibe engines, left
the pilot-houso and went to thu bonis;
when tbu Enterprise sheered across
our buw» think that bIio was oavriod
by thu tide; she was running at an
angle of nbout 22 degrees; she recovered, and we struck her on the port
side; did not pay particular attention
as to how the steamer was coining, as
I was not in charge of the boat; when
T joined the boat was given to understand that I had nothing to do with
the navigation of tho boat; my duties
wore to look after the freight deck. At
the time the engines were stopped the
Enterprise could have got 500 yards
nearer shore; did not consider the
Rithet too near shore. There was no
chance to save her when she waB sheering across our bows. There is such a
tide at this point that the helm will
not answer for a little; have seen the
Rithet almost have to turn round at
this placo on account of tide; my going
into the pilot-house was disobeying
ordors; have never steered tho Rithet
during four months I have been on
her.
After being absent for two liours
the jury returned with tho following
verdict;
We find that tho Chinamen, Wong
Fook and Lee Sam Hock came to their
deaths by drowning, on board the
steamer Enterprise, in collision with
the stoamer R. P. Rithet, on tho 28th
July, off Canburo Point; and that the
collision occurred from wnnt of caro
and skill in the navigation of the
Bteamer Rithet under diflicult circumstances, the master having left the
steamer in charge of au ordinary quarter- master.
The continuation of tho official investigation bufure Capt. Lewis, Capt.
Perereux and Mr. Vigur is as follows:
Captain Itudlin, being sworn, deposed; "I was master of the Bteamer
Enterprise; have been twenty - two
years a master iu these waters; when
the accident occurred I was at the
wheel, perhaps for two minutes; saw
the Rithet about three minutes before
the accident; there was a strung flood
tide at tho time, and the Rithet took
a sheer on her starboard helm; she
straightened tip a little before striking;
thc helm of the Enterprise was put to
port just before the tide struck her;
whon the accident happened I was
jlanded by the shock on the Rithet's
deck with the mate; I then went to
help save two -Frenchmen who wore
thrown overboard; then helped rescue
some Indians. I,never henrd Captain
Insley speak until I heard him from
the pilot house; I got into a small boat
and pulled around the Enterprise;
there was no- wny for me to get aboard
the Enterprise except by swimming;
could not see where I cuuld do any
good by going aboard the Enterprise;
thought I could do more good by helping to lower the Rithet'a boats,
Mr. N. (J, Johnston, sworn, testified that he was a passenger on thc
Enterprise; tliere were n number of
ladies; heard the whistle Df the Rithot and answer; did not hear Captain
Rudlin givo any orders; heard Insley
say to Rudlin, "How did this thing
happen?" heard no answer; did not
hear Captain Insley sny, "Why are
you not on your own boat?" the vessels were together about Hfteon minutes; . noticed people kicking seats
open to get life-preservers.
Jacob Lena, sworn, said he was a
paasenger on the Enterprise; saw the
captain go into the pilot-house and
answer tho Rithet's whistle; went aft;
saw Bishop giving ladies life-preservers;
was helped aboard the Rithet; the
only person I saw doing anything was
Bishop; the vessols were tuu near
when the whistles blew; I think the
Enterprise did all she could to get out
of tho way; I think Captain Rudlin
could have got to the Enterprise had
he wanted-to-j-a»aur»4» had-tHne.-
Mrs. Harris, sworn, deposed that
she was a passenger on the Enterprise;
waa standing aft with her granddaughter and other ladies; saw the Rithet n
long wuy off; thought we had struck a
rock; my granddaughter came and
snid, "Savo yourself; we are sinking;"
saw water on the cabin iloor; the purser was very kind; tho boats could not
have boon together more than a quarter of an hour; saw Captain Rudlin
ou the Rithet; thought it strango that
neither captain nor mate came to the
ladies' assistance; one lady jumped
iuto the wator; I was the last that
loft thc vessel; a man swam to us and
cut our boat loose; he was a brave
man and I should like to thank him;
heard no outcry for life-preservers,
Hon. John Robson, sworn: Was a
passenger on the Rithet; was standing
aft of the ladies' cabin, close by the
flngataff; I stepped on one side and
saw tlie Enterprise coming down; Bhe
was 300 or 400 yards away, and was
coming in a straight course; our boat,
sounded one whistle and tho Enterprise answered; I saw her change her
course, as if to run across our bows;
saw she seemed to net most strangely,
and immediately began to cut away
the lashings of the lifo buoy; when I
saw that the accident was inevitable I
braced myself for a shock, but theru
was none—felt like going through rotten ice; could not see it all from nft;
I wns behind the cabin; Bho must
hnve changed her course again as wc
hnd run into the purt shoulder; the
Rithet may havo also changed; I said
to n passenger the only thing the
Rithet could do was to run straight
Hn, as it was impossible to avoid a collision; immediately aftor the collision
1 went forward; did not see the mate
who was disabled; it was practicable
to get frum the Enterprise tu the
llithet; saw ladies taken in boat--
several persons did come from the
Enterprise to the Rithet, and it was
possible to go back over the wreckage,
as our bow had run iuto the middle of
the Enterprise; started to go myself
for a lady who was still on board; did
not see miyoiiu go that way; about
this timu saw Mr. Alexander uu the
hurricane dock clearing a boat, and
called to lum; did not notice, the captain of the Enterprise then at all; I
was not in a position to sue if there
were any oflicers looking aftor or giving orders; all was confusion; did not
see a seaman go overboard, but saw
Bishop and a waiter bringing people
round* Bishop seemed very active; did
not hear any conversation between
the two captains; saw Captain Rudlin
going away in a Binallboat; no oue
seemed to have command; I know
thero were a number of men nt the
boats;-do not know who they were; I
uliinild say wo were locked ten or fifteen minutes; henrd no complaint
about life-preservers; only saw ono
boat leaking.
■lames Louk, water-tender on thu
Kilhuti At the time of the collision I
inn aft when I saw the steamers were
going to strike; 1 saw the Enterprise
when she camo nround the point; sho
was half n mile away; sho was coming
right straight for ua; I saw Iho Enterprise tnke ashoor; wo blow ono whis.
tie; 1 went down lu the hold of tho
Rithot forward to boo if she was mnking wator; found everything all riuht
below; I roported this tu Chief McCarthy; tliere was cun si do ruble wreck-
ago on the Rithet's bow; tho firat timo
I saw Captain Rudlin he was on tho
Rithet's dook, throe or four minutes
nfter the collision; I kept watch of
the hold, to seo that wo made no
wator; saw Uje mate of the Enterprise
standing on the bow of tho Rithet; I
heard tlie gong ring to stop her; did
not hear bulls to back hor, but know
she was backing; n man could easily
get aboard the Enterprise from the
llithet; think they were locked together half an hour.
James McCarthy, sworn, deposed:
Was chief engineer of lhe Rithet; I
came up from the cabin from lunch
and was standing on thc port side,
looking at tho Enterprise approaching;
sho took a sheer and seeing we were
bound to strike her ran aft; 1 called,
"Look out, there's going to be a collision!" I went to the engine-room and
had her stopped; did not hear tiie
bells, but heard the exhaust; she had
stopped ten or twelve seconds before
the collision; she was backing after
tho collision, and heard Captain Itudlin say, "Stop her; don't back her;"
J went below and bad thc pumps started, to see if she wan milking any water;
the first man I saw aboard the Rithet
was tho mate; nlso Capt. Rudlin, tin
the deck; don't know how ho got there;
gave a hand to lower the boats; I saw
Insley speaking to Capt. Rudlin on the
forward deck; saw a great many passengers climb over between thc two
boats; tho engineer went back and got
all his clothes; I saw Capt. Rudlin assisting in lowering the boats; the pilothouse waa on the Enterprise; if Iho
Enterprise had not taken the Bheer wu
would have passed all right; thoy were
dodging like twit men on the street-
he turns the same way ns you do.
Thomas Hampton—Was deck-hand
on the Rithet; five minutes before the
collision 1 was iu the midship gangway;
saw smoke of thu Enterprise; said it
was the Westminster boat coming
down; she was clear of our port bow
und uuw her tako a sheer, and suid,
"She is going down our starbonrd
side"; whilo walking ncross to seo her
come down that Bide the accident happened; I ran foj-ward, saw them together, and ran back again; I saw
Capt. Rudlni in our forecastle head,
ordering Insley not lo back lior; I did
not know how he got there; eaw several men come ovor tho wreckage; they
could hnve got back a dozen times;
went with ono of the deck hands to
lower boats to save thc lady passengers;
henrd no orders from nny officers; lowered ail tho bonts and returned to forecastle head; think the boats were Inge ther twenty minutes or half nn hour.

Chlni.se In San Francisco.
The San Francisco Daily Report, of
July 21st, contains thu report of the
Supervisors' Special Committee on
Chinatown, and a map showing how
tho ground floor of ouch building in
that quarter of the city is occupied.
From thc editorial resume of the report, the following ia quoted:
The committee's report iu thorough
iu overy detail and masterly in its
methods and conclusions. Tho sanitary
phase of the question is first discussed.
The oondition of Chinatown—twelve
solid blocks in tbu heart of tin* city—
is described at length und the point is
mnde that "it Is to-dny the filthiest
spot inhabited by men, women and
children on the American continent."
Tho committee has had overy building in the district visited, examined
aud measured, and the number of
rooms and bunks ascertained, and, by
thia means, has succeeded in fixing,
with approximate accuracy, tlio number uf men, women and children of
Chinese origin who Bleep in Chinatown.
Through this system of inquiry it has
been determined that the population
of Chinatown is 30,300!
The women and children of Chinatown are nearly all concubines aud
their illegitimate offspring. Most of
tho women aro prostitutes. Figures
aro given to show tho prostitutes and
children are herded togothor. Tho
subject of Chinese prostitution is treated fully and freely, and the committee
has not been restrained by any false
delicacy from giving the most disgusting details as they should be given in
a case of this kind. It is shown lhat
the Chinese prostitutes arc slaves; that
they train children to follow their vile
culling, and that, through tiio spread
of the opium habit, white prostitutes
have drifted into Chinatown and become a feature of its prostitution!
Another startling discovery is thu numerous instances of white women cohabiting with Chinamen.
Much of .the report deals wiih tho
evasion of municipal laws by the Chinese. The committee shows that the
inhabitants of Chinatown nre practically above lhe local ordinances.
Theru is one point made by the committee which is of special importance
as argument Against iho conversion
theory. The report shows lhat tho
number bf Chinamen converted to
Christianity is ridiculously small, while
the nwful viflOB ci Chinatown—gambling, opium-smoking and prostitution
--have increased at u frightful rato,
The local missionaries have boon unable to niter the habits of the Chinese
and the only chancres iu the customs of
thu Chinamen oi Chinatown relate to
saloons and houses of ill-repute. The
American oooklail, the American pool
game and American prostitution of the
lowest grade have lieen accepted by
thu Chinese within ihe past eighteen
moutha, aud degradation in Chinatown
has reached a lower piano than ever.
The comtniltee gives facts and figures
and locates dons ul infamy, and it is
therefore impossible fur nny person to
successfully challetlfle thu truth of its
statements, lt is thia absolute accuracy of statement that makes tho report ao valuable. It muat be accepted
as the standard authority on Chinese
social life iu America. After showing,
by medical testimony, lhat the prostitutes of Chinntnwn nro spreading
dreadful diseases nnioug the boys of
this city, the oommittee snys;
"Thero is a mountain oi testimony
of a .similar nature, nil of which might
be quoted hore, but it. would be simply
cumulative, and your cninmitteo do
not consider it necessary to go into it
further. We have bIiowji that Chiuose
prostitution exists among us as the
basis of the most abject nnd Satanic
conception of human slavery; that it
Is conducted upon tho most inhumane
principles; thnt our own laws nro successfully invoked to shield, protect and
foster it; that it is the source of the
most terrible pollution of tho blond of
the younger nnd rising gonumtions
among us, nnd that it is destined to
be the source of contamination and
hcriditary diaonawi nmong tlioso who
come after us too frightful to oontom-
plilte, and, possibly, nlrondy ton strong-
ly entrenched as an evil to bu successfully modified, much less eradicated.
Wo do not desire to antiiiie any undue
public excitement i-r indignation on
this subject; but our duty is to stale
the facts as thoy uxist, und yours to
exercise nil tho cool nnd deliberate
judgment. (Imi can be brought to bear
upon it, in a calm and thorough search
for tho best reniody that enn ut pieseut
be applied, or the wisest action that
can lie taken in dealing with thia
branch of the Chinese question,"
The recommendations of the report
are sensible und comprehensive, The
committee, on tho theory that the people of this city have the right of self-
protection, saya that we must do this:
"Compel thu Cinnamon, by municipal laws whicli arc not only enacted
but enforced, to live liko our own nice;
prevent them from burrowing and
crowding together like vermin; enforce
cleanliness in mode uf life; break up
opium dons and gambling hells; restrict
the number of inhabitants in any given
block in Ihe city; enforce upon this
people, so far hb mny bo possible by
every legitimate method that can be
devised, u cost of living that sball approach na nearly as possible thai of
tlm ordinary white labor, Take away
from thu Chinamen by such methods
as these the largest possible part ul the
profit of his earnings ns they accrue
now from his proeeiit mode of lifo, and
thus exhaust evory effort to bring him
to the level of the present fearfully
handicapped American laborer, and
California, or Sun Francisco at least,
will soon cense to be attractive as a
place t-f abode, and a leas profitable
field of labm- for the Chiunmuu than
it is at preseut. Scatter thom by such
a policy us this to other states, and let-
other states take home to themaelvcs
the full measure of the extent of (he
cureu of Chinese immigration, when
they shall hnve felt tho uvil as we feel
it hero. Well-devised, well-considered
and well-enforced municipal laws thnt
will bring nbout such results uu these
will accomplish mure iu ono yenr than
declamations from the 'Sand-lot' and
bursts of public indignation can accomplish in n century."
In the name of the people of Sau
Francisco tho Daily Jleport thanks tho
Special Committee of tho Supervisors
for ita report on Chinatown, und takes
occasion to Bay, whnt every intelligent
person must admit, that it is thu most
important document ever filed with
thc city government.

Address        HARPER A BROS., New York, The Steamboat collision.
1   CONTINUATION OF THE ENQUIRY.
Cnpt. Ashbury Insloy, sworn—Said
that lie waa muster of the str. Rithet
at the time of thu collision witli tlie
Enterprise; wna in tlie dining saloon
at the time getting lunch; heard the
signal of tlie Rithet to the approaching
boat to fo to port; we usually passed
the down boat in that vicinity; was
expecting her at the time; remained in
my seat at tlie table; somo littlo time
after the whistle blew heard tlie gong
signal to the engineer; it struck one
bell; this was to stop the engine; the
time between the whistle and thu gong
iiignals could net lmvo been more than
five minutes; ho Imd left thc (juarter-
maeter, Randull, in tho pilot house nt
the wheel; asked Randall when ho put
him in charge of the wheel if ho understood the bolls, und hu stated tU'n.1 ho
did; he left no further orders, as it
was a standing unlet- lhat whon approaching a bout they should leave
plenty uf room; did not know whether
the mato wus on deok; he was not in
the pilot house; tho quarter-niaBtei* at
the wheel wus iu charge of tho bout
when witness loft; ho docs not hold a
certificate of any clasa that I nil) awaro
of; had confidence that the quarter*
master was couipoteut tu utter tlie boat
in the locality they were in; ho had
acted as quarter-master ou the Yosemite, mul Ctipt. Iyviim had transferred him to tho Rithet, ho Imd boen on
the Rithet for aevernl trips; at the
lime tho whistle blow lie know tho
Rithet must bo near Cadboro Point, to
tho southward; when tlio gong sounded I left my chair and started for tho
pilot' house; did not reach the pilot
house boforo the collision j wus noar
tho door of the saloon when tho collision took place; it did not causo much
shock on tho Rifclietj found tho quarter-master in tho pilot houso; he then
noticed the position of the Enterprise;
the deck began to lift und tho hull to
sink; thero was considorablo excitement aiming- the passengers on the Enterprise; he wont down to the main
deck, and met Oapt. Rudlin nu that
deck; ho asked the latter how tho accident happened; he mado no answer;
he asked him why ho was not on hiu
own boat; Capt. Rudlin exclaimed,
"My God! she's sinking;" witness said
she was not sinking rapidly, and ho
Bhould bo on his own boat looking
after the passengers and getting his
boats out; many of the passengers of
the Enterprise eliined on to tho Rithet
over the boiler deck; noticed that
thero waa a rip tide, two currents
meeting; Cnpt. Rudlin must have followed lum to tho hurricane deck of the
Rithet to assist iu gelling tho bouts
out; during this time he noticed a
number of men swimming iu the water
aud also some of the cattle; the boat
waa not sinking rapidly: it was somu
ton or fifteen minutes after thu collision tlmt the str. Western Slope came
to their assistance; by tho time the
camo over most of tho Enterprise passongers wore aboard the Rithot and \
(ho bouts wero picking up tliose win
wero in tho wator; the Enterprise rested on the forecastle deck uf the Rithet,
and the two ili-i uot separate until the
Slopo towod tlio Enterprise away; at
this time tho mast of the Enterprise
fell over; au there waa plenty of sea
room at the timo he considered the
llithet perfectly safe in charge of tho
fruarter-master for a short timo; had
never seen his mate's cortiiieute; ho
had told him tlmt ho had one when liu
joined tho steamer; he had never asked
him for it; witness held iv captuin's
certificate; tho Rithet was a properly
certificated bout; they lost no passengers; ho had known Randall before on
the Yosemito, and when he took charge
of lhe Rithet Randall was on tho boat;
ho had mado two short trips ou tht
Yosemito with Randall us quartermaster and had full confidence iu him
as helmsman; had left him before at
times in charge of tlio wheel, but nevor
when in close quarters; thore was
ample sea room where the collision occurred; took charge of the wheel when
ho got to tho pilot house; after the
collision he noticed that tho wheel waa
hard to port; this would have tho tendency to throw tho Rithot away from
the Enterprise; the Rithet answers hor
holm very readily at times, when currents did not interfere; tlie position tif
the Rithet's wheel, hard-a-port, was the
proper one for it to be in.
Harry Randull, sworn, deposed that
he was qtmrtov-mastor of tbo Rithet
at the time of the collision; was left in
charge of lhe wheel at about a quarter
to two; thu steumer at this time was
coining through Trial Island Pass,
heading up for the beacon; saw the
Enterprise shortly afterward over the
reef at Ton-mile Point; when the
steamers were about a quarter of a
mile apart I blew our whistlo; don't
know whether sho answered; the
steamers at the time woro heading almost directly for ouch other; ho saw
the Enterprise either starboarding hor
wheel or else swinging with the tide;
he made a remark to the mate who was
standing alongside of him in tho pilot
house saying. "My God! what's tho
man trying to do ? He's going tu cross
our bow;" didn't shift the wheel thon
-was not awaro what they woro going
to do; the wheel was a little to port;
the mato stopped tho engine, and at
the samo time I put the wheel hard to
port; this wns at the time tho Enterprise was trying to port; previous to
this she was on our starboard bow; sho
then shifted hard to port, and wo
struck her as sho was passing; at thu
time she was hard to port wo were
about ton vessel's lengths oil'; did not
receivo an order to go hard lo port us
that was tho regular rule; the mate
helped to put it over; we weru heading toward San Juan island when the
vessels struck; the Rithot struck the
Enterprise on tho port sido; as soon as
tho collision occurred the mate loft the
pilot house to clear the boats, and
Capt. Insley came iuto tho pilot houso
at about tho samo time; Capt, Insloy
took a look around, and then thoy both
went below to the freight deck; ho
there saw Oapt. Rndlln coming aboard
in a small boat and heard him singing
out three or four times, "On the
Rithet, lower the boats;" witness heard
tho conversation between the two captains, ns evidenced by Capt, Insley;
the latter theu told tho witness to holp
the mate lower the boats; tho duties
uf the quarter-master aro to steer tho
bont, keep the pilot house iu order,
and to attend to the gangways at landings; havo boon a seaman all my life;
do not hold any certificate; havo acted
as mate of a steamer iu tho United
States; had not seen tho Eutorprisu
whoti Cnpt. Insley handed over tho
wheel to mo; tho mato came into thu
pilothouse just beforo I whistled; did
not know when sho was swinging to
the starboard whnt they wero trying to
do on the Enterprise; thought she
must havu misunderstood the signal;
she gave uo indication how sho was
going.
Robert Maclver being sworn, do-
poied—I was engineer of tho Enter-1
{irift tt the time of tho accident; 1 was
n charge of the engine at the time,
uml was standing on the ladder leading
to tho engine room, about five feot
from tho throttle, when I heard a bell
to slow; 1 immediately plnced my
hand ou thu throttle nnd closed it; at
that instant tlio bell rang to stop her
ntid a few seconds after 1 felt tho collision; tho next moment the steam
camo up and tilled the engine room so
that 1 could not seo; my fireman was
standing by and 1 told him to follow
mo; I went up to the hurricane deck
and opened tho safety valvo to pro-
vent auy danger of nn explosion from
the cold water coining in contact with
thc boiler; somebody on the Rithot
culled out Maolver save yourself, 1
think it was Cuplain Rudlin, ho was
on the Rithet; I then went on top of
thc Enterprise pilot houso and catching hold of the jib halliard of tho
Rithet swung myself aboard thnt
steamer; I would not swear to seeing
Captain Rudlin, nor did I soo any
passengers in Iho water; I am at present engineer of tho Yosemito; havo a
first class engineer's certificate.
Henry P. Bishop, boing sworn, deposed: 1 was purser of tho stoamer
Btiturpriae; just beforo the collision I
was at my desk writing, when I hoard
thu Rithot whistlo and the Enterprise
answer; as soon ns iho boats struck 1
went aft; I heard screams and cries of
"Look out;'' I placed somo life-preservers on the ladies; one lady refused
a life-preserver because sho thought
it would spoil lior dress; I did hot soo
Captain Rudlin on thn boat, und there
was no onu iu charge of passengers
but myself; there wero sufficient life-
preservers for all; 1 went on tho deck
and jumped overboard, at tho sumo
time throwing u stick of wood to a passenger in the water; I was picked up
by ono of the Kithot's boat's, and went
to assist souio of tho passengers from
Iho Enterprise boats; sho was about
tiie usual distance from shore; I heard
(lie engine bulls ring; I hud ninety-one
passongers aboard, about ton of them
Indies: think it was more thnn fifteen
minutes that tho two beats wero locked
together; I saw Capt. Rudlin aftor I
got aboard tho Rithot.
Stuart Koonati, being sworn, deposed: T was dock hand on the Enterprise
at the time of the. accident and was
on tho forward gangway on tho port
side; when I saw they were going to
strike I rati aft and tried to get into
my room; thou ran forward and climbed on tho Rithet; I was at the wheel
of tlio Enterprise when I tirst saw tho
Ritliet, half it milo away, but was relieved just beforo thc collision; I went
to tho wheel of* tho Enterprise nt 5
minutes past II nnd loft it about 1:15;
as I came out of tho pilot house the
captain wont in; wo saw the Rithot
Cuming; tho captain and mate woro
both in tho wheel-house when I left,
nnd throe minutes after tho collision
took place; tho Rithet blew one whistle, the Enterprise answered; after the
collision I jumped overboard from the
Rithot to save Mr. Bishop, who was
struggling iu the water; there was no
one ou the Entoipriso to givo orders;
the mato was jammed betweon the
capatau of the Rithet anil tho wreckage of the Enterprise; I tried to pull
him nut, but ho was so bruised I was
afraid of hurting him; I saw tho 1-fith*
et lake a sheer toward the Enterprise,
and said, "What's the mutter with
that fellow? ho is going to run into
us!"
Edward McDonald testified to assisting thu passengers to got aboard tho
llithet, and that ho saw Captain Rudlin ou tho guard of tho Rithot and
that theru was uo one on the Enter
prise lo givo orders.

Said .lohn Bright at the dinner iu
London to Minister Phelphsi I believe
the timo will come—I do not expect
to livo to seo it myself, although I
uijiy soe somo advance toward it, but I
beliovo my children aud grandchildren
will as certainly soe it as anything bofore tho eyes now—I believo tho time
will como when the American nation,
having, by vast sacrifices of blood and
treasure, uccomplished tho freodom of
men, tho labor of the mun will bo as
free as the bodies of the mon. (Loud
cheers.) Thc Duko of Argyll said the
great men of nations help to form the
greatness of nations. Well, I sbould
say that thesu great nations—tho onu
on this sido of the Atlantic, and tho
nno that promises to bo much greater
on tho other side of tho Atlantic—
theao two nations will, to great extent,
guide tiie future policy of tho world,
(blear, hear.) It often strikes me as a
very curious thing that in America tho
Massachusetts man has not tho slightest objection to deal commercially
with somebody in California or in thc
extremo south, in Louisiana or Texas;
but ho has tho groatost objection—
no one can tell why, except that it is a
superstition—to trade with people in
Canada or in Great Britain and Ireland. But why? If wo were all
shoved into tlie United States; if wo
were ono country, with only ono object, nobody would deny that anything
would bo moro natural than that manufactures of thu two countries should
intermingle, nnd everybody would
agree that it was not only tho bust,
bnt also the most profitable thing
for the population of the two
countries. (Hour, henr.) My point
is tlmt tho groat miestioii of military
preparations, establish ments and wars
will receive in all probability a more
complete solution by tho free commercial intercourse of nations than from
any other teaching; that if you allow
iho pcoplu of other countries frankly
and openly to trade with each other,
tl\oy will learn tho lussonH of peace
from tho psgos of their ledgers.
(OllaersV These vast armies in Europe
--you ought to thank heaven every
day that you aru not in Europe (laughter aud cheers)—thoso vast armies in
Eui'opo uro kept up under the pretense
and with the use of tho argument that
tho people will bear tho cost of them;
thoy aro kopt up, it is said, to safeguard the peaco of the nations to which
thoy belong. There is nothing under
heaven so adverse to peaco as the
establishment iind maintenance of
these great armies. (Cheers). I am
satisfied thnt, if it wero possible for
England aud Frnnce and Germany and
Austria and Russia and Italy to abolish tho tariffs und let commerce How
freely, it would bo beyond tho possibility of king or i|tioen, of lhe czar or
kaiser, or statesman of any rank, to
bring those nations to war. "(Choora).
Smoking and Kissing.
Mrs. Do Blank—"Thoro now, John,
just road thnt, and maybe you will
throw away that horrid cigar."
Mr. Do Bluuk-"Read what?"
"Why, this in tho paper. A member
of tho recent Women's Congress says
'it is a nice thing for a man to keop his
mouth fit to be kissed.' "
"Humph! That may all bo; but it is
nlso u nico thing for a woman to keep
hur mouth in the right position to bo
kissed. "
"Tho right position?"
"Yes, shut,1'—Philadelphia Call.

The Hospital lias undergone a good deal

Is parllciilnrly useful. Also, I have to

wards clean aud comfortable: and, nlso,
for bis kindness uno nttentlon lo Hie sick.
li-foreclosing my report I wish to suggest. Hint. If 11 fever w.ird, I.e., to admit typhoid fever, could be opened, it would add
verv iniiteriiiltv lo the usefulness of tho

dono without much openso by attncliing
three or four rooms to the building for the
