The extent of inland navigation
in British Columbia is very much
greater than is generally imagined.
In tbe interior there are long
stretches of navigable waters on the
Columbia, Kootenay, Fraser and
Thompson rivers, and tributary
lakes and streams. In a oountry of
the mountainous nature of British
Columbia, these navigable waters
are of special value, owing to the
great cost of building railways, In
the milder climate of tbe Pacifio
province, the rivers are alio rendered tuoft valuable than they would
be oa thll side of the mountains, on
aaoount of the greater length of time
which they remain open. These
navigable water stretches will play
an important part in the settlement
of the interior country, and it ii
therefore the duty of the government
to improve the streams, where practicable. Owing to the difficulties
of constructing railways, as gnat
use as possible should be made of
thete natural advantages In the
shape of navigable waters.—IKtnnt-
_>eg Comm/mal.   .
British Columbia, though a province of vast undeveloped resources,
is not, in the strict sense of the
word, a poor man's country. Everything there seems to say capital first
—capital ii required to develop Ihe
forest wealth, the mineral wealth,
the fishery wealth of the province.
Farming lands are held at high figures, and only farmers of means
need go to British Columbia. Yet
British Columbia must ultimately
become one of the wealthiest provinces in Canada, on account of the
value of the national resources yet
to be developed. Of these only tlie
outskirts have been touched. Though
ooal abounds in many localities, it is
only worked in two mines. Iron
ore, too, though vast in quantity, is
only mined to supply a small demand on the American, side of the
■line; and though every facility exists,
no blast furnace has yet been erected. Fifty million dollars' worth of
gold has, it is true, heen washed
from tho Fraser and other streams,
but the source of supply remains untapped. Quartz mining has not yet
been regularly, organised, and enormous revenues in gold, silver, and
copper, as well as other metals,
await the influx of capital, Indeed,
no smelting furnace whatever for
the precious'1 metals exists in the
province, Sawmills are established
at various points, but they have
done only a fmotionn! business compared with-the forest wraith ti the
province. The sole organised fishery
is that of salmon; tbo deep-sea fisheries ol great value—in herring, cod,
halibut, ie;—are as yet practically
untouched.—Ctga\ Clark m the Canadian Gazette.

Loudon, May 2.—The house of commons committee which haa been investigating the charge that Hr. Nolan,
M. P., was connected with Miller.
Melville and others of the fhvaual
force party,, reconunena. that A future
admJHionsto the house of oommons
should be made under the supervision
of the police, but suggests no change
in the rules governing the admission of
ladies. To the surprise of everybody
the report makes no notice of Nolan
whatever, and almost innumerable
theories are advanced to account for
this omission. The police, profess lo
have strong hope of ultimately arresting Gen. Butler, ahd it ia understood
that further enquiry as to Nolan's connection with the Clan na Gael ohief
will be made as soon as that individual
on be apprehended. The general
opinion, is tbat the committee's Investigation is a repetition of the fable of
" the mountain in labor."

Lot-pox, May 2.—A despatch Irom
Rome states that the pope', decrees regarding Ireland and Cardinal Mon-
acclo's circular to the Irish bishops
are considered as preliminary steps towards a special congregation of Uie
college of tha Propsanda composed
exclusively of cardinal, which Is now
engtged in examining several of the
question! relative to the Irish agitation
and upon which it will formally vote.
It is also stated that Cardinal Simeon!
has submitted tc this court of enquiry
at least 10 points which are to ba decided. The despatch says that it appears to be resolved that those who
eppos. ita decisions will plaoe themselves outside of the pale of the moral
and Christian law, and thst it does not
doubt that the Irish bishops will feel

THE IOSI QUEIS
Ban Fbanciscq, May 8.—The stumer City oi. Pueblo arrived from
Port Hatrford this morning, and
reports that divers have been examining the sunken stesmer the QueaK-w
the Pacific and found that tbe aula
of the disaster was due to tbe opining
of a foal port on the starboard M-wiiM
thevesieL It is believed that the
port was knocked loose by soma one
on the ship with the intention of sinking her at sea. This horrible theory
is held hy every one who has seen hsr
at Port Hartford. The oompany will
make a searching investigation of the
matter. It will be an easy matter to
raise the ateamer and bring her her*.
The cover of the port will be put on,
snd the hold pumped oat by tugs.

London, May 2.—Lord Stanley of
Preston was banquetted bv the Canada
Olub to-night. A notable company
wu present and he wu given a hearty
reception. Mr. Chamberlain wrote regretting his absence, and said his visit
to Canada had increased the interest
and pride he felt in the great British
colony, (Loud cheers.) Lord Stanley
said that in going to fill a position
where all must be for the state and
none for party, he entirely repudiated
thi suggestion of Premier Mercier
that he wu going to Oanada to force
imperial federation upon th* Dominion.
A* a politician of 20 yeara' standing he
had nothing to retract or deny of hia
recent expression of pleuure at th*
daily Increasing interest between
Canada and th* old country. He wu
hardly disposed to treat Mr. Mercier's
utterance seriously. He rather considered It aa attempt at political thought-
reading. However he might adhere
to his old political convictions these
must bu subordinated to the constitution of the position he wns about to
fill. Mr. Beverly Robinson slid 'Dr.
Grant, buhop oi Algoma, also spoke.
Lord Stanley sails at the beginning of

At the risk of .being .:oi»Si<leri-cl
tedious wo taki AKe liberty *bf again
urging upon no government the
importance of beginning rood work as
soon u possible. In this district
especially, where road beds aro generally composed of soft material, nnd
where largO quantities1 of rain fall
after teww?*!* -ptsHWelyiieces^
sary that roads should be made or
repaired a* oarly at possible in the
season if. value is to bo obtained
for the expenditure; ■-■ We have
wen men throwing soft earth on to
a soft road late ta the1 fall, after the
rainy season had set in. Roads
made in this way are a delusion and
a snare.; ■ The earth and. the rains
together-nuke excellent mud, and
the more! earth the more mud'.
Roads ought to be completed at least
a month before the wet season begins. The earth, then, is given a
chance to become b-sitin'dowri and
hardened;1 aKd'iftheroadhns booh,
well rounded' and properly draihed,
it will be abfe, perhaps, to resist the
softening influence of the rain. The
appropriations for road work in this
district always fall far short of public requirements, and unless these
appropriations ar* inade to' crtW as
much ground as possible the public
interest will suffer. The appropriations made during last session are
not available until the first of; July
next; but we have suggested away
in which it wittld be edsy to' avoid
this difficulty. Lot'the rand work
be mapped out now, and specifications prepared for contracts. In
most cases contractors would.. be
quite willing to go oh with the work
in the mean tinie, and wait till the
beginning of the new fiscal year for
their money; If this plan is adopted it will be found that double value
will be received for all expenditures
on rond work in this district
Not long, ago we referred to two
very remarkable - statements which
appeared in the columns of our
Vanoouver morning cotemporary.
One of thete related to a> scow* towing the Str: Adelaide up the river,
and the other described the oolachans
as rushing through tho . water with
long poles. In mentioning those
things wo had no intention" of disturbing the tranquillity which usually reigns so sweetly in the sanctum
of our cotemporary. It seems, however, that onr ult water friend, like
all inexperienced journalists, has
not yet attained that thickness of
skin whioh is considered one of the
most essential requisites for persons
of the honorable profession, and in
his issue of yesterday he■ rushes at
The Columbian with three' errors
which happened to occur in its columns during the past month! Somebody has said something about a
class of people who rush in where
angels fear to tread. If any ono of our
readers is happy enough to have in
his posssuHMja oqpjr of yesterday's
issue of oof" cdtetiiporary, he will
find that in the two columns of
original matter it contains there
are at least eight errors, to say
nothing at all about punctuation.
But this eiroumstonee would not bo
sufficient in itself to call tot special
notice: ifcisao very common, Our
cotemporuy becomes facetious oVor
an item which appeared in ' this
journal some time ago recommending the use of onions especially for
children; and THE- Columbian is
accused of so mixing the item as to
moke it appear uncertain whether it
wu recommended to boil the onions
or the children, The onion item
wu perfutly plain to pwaena of- or-
dinar/ corapreheaiion, but we ure
puuled 'to make-out the meaning of
onr cotemporory's reference to it.
He uys the item wu "about the
efficacy as a oure for certain complaints of children of large Spanish'
onions." ..Kow, the item which appeared in The Columbian said
nothing whatever about ."children
of large Spanish onions." 'Indeed,
if it bad hot been for the hint! contained in .our cotemporary's lucid
criticism of what he took to be a
blunder-on H» part of this journal,
we shouM notrr hat* even suspeetcd
that tho pwdtaOts of Spanish onions
ought to iw called children at all. In
all ieri>^^;'Wll.'ir^!Omnieh4 bur
young ootemppraiy to put bis head
to soak tot a day or two, and then
he may, pufaaps, attain to a condition of mental activity whioh will
enable bim intelH-jjetitl-y to discuss
such profound and absorbing ques-
tfam u the proper administration of
onions to tmall children and the
peonliar habHH' nnd disposition of
nil, Sine* the foregoing hu been
written our attention has - been
called to an tarn) which appears in

Not an an happy spirit, though, for

tho brilliant ballroom she hail left who
troulil surpass her either in beauty or
wealth. And she was the betrothed
brido of the handsomest man present—
tho man sho loved—so sho was not tin-
huppy; not until a sudden curve in her
fiatli brought her within .sound ol two
ainiliar voices.
"(ino -would think lhat a fellow lucky

she was at thoso last words, Sho waited,
with her blind   involuntarily pressed
against her heart for tho answer,
"Don't laugh, Jack, for Heaven's sake!"
her lover's voice replied impatiently,
"Monoy can't buy happiness, and I fenl

But one day he came to her with a
face so sad, perplexed, and troubled, that
it startle I her.
"What is it, lien7" ehe exclalmod, involuntarily, rising to greet him.'.
"I'have just heard something that
troubles ine very much, Celeste,'' he be-
gnn, uust'adily. "Vou romeiilber Orra

iil;2 that she knevv it already, and, at the
end, with fcloailier voice and eager, earnest eyes, full of courage now:
"I have told you all, Celeste," ho said
quietly. "1 love her, and, though I
never spoke of it to her, 1 believe her
love was just as truly mine. I believe ii

Ho stood waiting. Jbr her answer, but
it was'iiiany minutes before it came.  .
.She had lur ncd away her luce, and he-
could not see the strugr'le on those beau-'
tiinl features between the pride, and
lovo, and hitter, passionate'resentment
tliat tore her heart to pieces.'
"lien Vernou," she spoke at last, turning slowly toward him, "by right of your

to do so. 1 knew long ago that your love

Her voico faltered, and tho pressed her
hand against her heart.
~" *'I cannot tell you whether it is pride,
or weather my love Is so great thst 1

ehe went on, her voice growing'toft and
twoot: "but"—tremulously—"you are
freo—free towed iny rival, and''—with a
pitiful smile—"let the world say what it
will."
Kbo could not utter prayers for his
happiness, but she gave him her hand
for an instant ere sho turned away. He
raised it gently to his lip)..
"God bless you," he whispered, aa ho
let it go.
A month later society was startled by.
the marriage of Celesta Madison to
Colonel Harry Milford.
And when, toon afterward, Ben Vernon
led beautiful, dark-eyed Orra to the altar,
it was fonnd that some mysterious friend
had settled a handsome marriage portion
upon tho happy bride.

It seems to me, however, ifiii habit ol
dilatoriness could belter be mastered in
youth. Punctuality should be one of
tlio. virtues grounded into children while
they art receiving their moral, intellectual and physical training. School
teachers do attempt this for their Own
comfort and the discipline of their Mbol,

the.habit' Which will generally Mink
through life whllo yut their ollsprlng is

Houn should be let for doing certain
things about tbe house and children

should long since havo died from lung
tnm|lei.-E. Bragdon, Palestine, Tex.
About tlxmontht ago I had a severo
Hemorrhage of tho Lungs, brought on
by . distressing Cough, which deprived
me of ileep ana rest. I had used various cough balsams and expectorants,
without obtaining relief. A friend advised ine to try
kjftu't Cherry Pectoral.
I did so, and am happy to say that it
helped me at once. By continued nso
thll medicine cured my cough, and, I
wn satisfied, saved my life Mrs. B.
Coburn, 18 Second St., Lowell, Mats.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Peotoral
for ever a year, and sincerely believe I
shonld'bavo been ln my grave, had it
not beenfor this medldne; It hat cured
me of a dangerous affection of the hings,
for whioh I trod almoe! .iMnalr.al ol ever
flndlng a remedy.— I). A. McMulleo,
