Or, heekjer'* Theory.
On Thursday last Dr. Norman
lockyer, the astronomer-royal, read
a paper before the Boyal society in
which he developed a theory whioh
is "startling in the novel sweep of
its conclusions as to the construction of the whole visible universe."
Dr. Lockyear started with the meteorite as a cosmical unit, and nays
the spectroscope practically demonstrates that all self luminous bodies
in the celestial spaces are composed
of meteorites, or masses of meteoric
vapor, produced by beat brought
about by condensation of meteor
swarms due to gravity. This hypothesis sweeps away all the present distinctions between stars, comets and nebula), and attributes the
difference in their spectra solely to
variations in temperature. The dispatch adds that Dr. Lockyer has reproduced all these variations in
miniature by warming a meteoric
fragment placed in a vacuum tube
through which an electrical discharge
is passed, and has obtained all the
grades of spectra, from the pale nebula to the comet in perehilion,and to
a star of considerable brilliancy, solely by increasing the heat. The
whole paper is said to be of the most
striking and suggestive originality,
and to have been accepted under
reserve by English scientists as laying the foundation for a new astronomy based on the spectroscope.
If the cable has conveyed an accurate version of Dr. lockyer's theory
it is evident; whilst it differs from,
it runs somewhat in line with what
has long been known as the nebular
hypothesis. This conception, which
originated with Laplace, starts by
assuming the existence of a rare and'
widely diffused mass of nebulous
matter, forming a vast rotating
spheroid. As the process of contraction sets in the rate of rotation
increase!! whilst by the augmenting
centrifugal force its equatorial zone
is from time to time prevented from
following any further the rotating
mass, and so remains behind as a revolving ring. Each of these revolving rings thus periodically detached
eventually becomes ruptured at its
weakest point,and, contracting upon
itself, in turn becomes a separate
rotating moss; that this, like the parent moss, increases in rapidity of
rotation as it decreases in size, and
similarly throws off rings, which also collapse into rotating spheroids;
and that out of these primary and
secondary rings thero arose the
planets and their satellites, while
from the central moss there resulted
the sun. Dr. Lockyer, it will be
seen, starts with meteor swarms instead of with nebulous matter of extreme rarity, and accounts for their
coming together by the law of gravity and for their fusion into large
masses by the law of the conversion
of motion into heat. Meteors have
always beeu a puzzle. Some, ignoring the law of gravity, havo assumed them to be ejects from the
sun or the suns; others regard them
as the fragments of broken up
world. Sir William Thomson once
suggested that a meteor or meteorite falling on this earth had brought
with it the principle of life. Dr.
Lockyer does not appear to attempt
an explanation as to where the meteor swarms originate. All theories
come to a stand still at or about
that stage. As Virohow has well
said, the scientist is able to make
good use of matter in his own conceptions and his inductions, but ask
him whence is matter, and who or
what divided it into molecules, and
impressed upon them the necessity
of running into organic forms, and
he is mute. "But," and here Vir-
chow begins the conflict with revelation, "if science is rendered dumb,
who else is prepared with an answer!—Mail.
BY TELEGRAPH.
The Turks, being prohibitionists
by order of the Koran, have commenced a little war upon some saloons kept by Christians in Constantinople. Such establishments in the
Christian quarter do not give offence
to the Turkish authorities, but there
are numerous saloons in the immediate neighborhood of tho mosques
or Turkish temples. All the drinking plaoes within 260 feet from the
houses of Turkish worship have boon
ordered closed, and the police are
giving effect to the decree. Suoh a
thing is too much, of course, for
Christian diplomates. All tbe foreign consuls held a meeting and resolved tbat a uniform protest should
be signed by nil of them against so
outrageous a proceeding of the "unspeakable" Turk and be delivered by
thoir respective embassies to tho
porte on the same day.—far.

servatito was returned unopposed.
HBLDFOK BAIL.
Chicaoo, Dec. 2.—William It. Lee,
a seventeen-year-old son of the banker, Stephen W. Rawson, has boen held
to answer with bail ia the sum of $10,-
000 for the attempted murder of Kaw-
son. Lee is the son of Mrs. Rawson
by a former husband. The crime was

qecure a divorce on the ground of infidelity.
AHGHT FOE  TUE COUNTY SEAT.
Topeka, Kaus., Deo. 2.—One hundred men of the town of Wano, armed
with Winchester rifles, yesterday proceeded to Bud City, Cheyenne county,
to take poaseesion of the court house.
This action was the result of the election for tho county seat, and it was
claimed that Bud City received a majority of rotes. The oounty commissioners, who are residents of Wano,
the opposing town, declared'in favor
of Wano. In the curiHict whioh ensued threo men wore seriously.injured.
The Wauoites were forced to retire.
The militia has been called out.

Memphis, Tenn., Deo. 2.—A reign
of terror prevails at Cut Island, in
Crittenden county, Arkansas, twenty-
five miles below here. Two negroes,
arrested yesterday for insulting white
woman, were arraigned before a negro
justice, and many whites attended.
Trouble between the two races sprang
up, and in tho shooting which followed both negroes under arrest were
killed and three others hurt. The negroes fled and armed themselves and
fired on two white men in a boat on
the river, nnd then went on a hunt for
the killers of thoir friends. More serious trouble is expected.
the behhino sea FtsuEunss:
Ottawa, Deo. 2.—The provincial
seoretary of British Columbia, after a
lengthy interview with Sir John Macdonald, Btates that the dominion government has decided not to submit the
case of tho Behring seizures to the
Washington commission on the ground
held by the dominion govornment. He
says that the Behring Sea dispute involves the rights of nil maritime nations upon the high seas, and for Canada to consent to ita being mixed up
with the Atlantic- troubles might be
regarded as an admission that it is a
fitting question for compromise as between the two nations only.
THIS AFTKRHOON'S DKSFAT0IU.

A Sl'LENIiIli SIIOWlNrl.
San Francisco, Dec. 2.—J. H.
White!)-, who was sent to the Pucific
cosst in July Inst by the fishermen und
smack owuors of Newfoundland to examine the possible advantages that
might ensue to the people whom he
represented by migrating from their
hunics in Newfoundland and Labrador to the Pacific coast, hns returned
to this city from British Columbia,
having comploted his examination.
He says: "I visitod Victoria, Vancouver Island, nnd thence went to
every point of advantage by steamer
and sailing craft. The points which I
have selected for the locations of the
future villages are on the Queen Charlotte islands. This group consists of
Graham, Moresby nnd Provrrst islands.
Their coast line oxtends about two degrees of latitude, aud as there are
numerous inlets that afford shelter, I
consider tho group a splendid plaoe for
our men. Tho mam point thnt ongng-
ed my attention was the fishing prospects. I was fairly astounded at the
quantity of fish, the wators fairly teem
with thorn, and although my investigations were confined to tho cast sido
of Queen Charlotte islands I am informed that on their west coast the
fish are just as abundant."
ANOTHER INDIAN WAR.
Toscon, Ariz., Dec—Trouble is
reported among the Papngoea; It is
charged that four days ago they stole
horses in Sonora and attomptod to run
them across the line into Arizona,
They were pursued by tho ranchers
and custom house guards, and when
the Indians were overtaken a fight followed and the stolen stook recovered.
Ono Indian wns killed and the Papa-
gos declared war against the Mexicans
and have opened hostilities by killing
somo cattle and stealing others.

OREVY  RESIGNS.
Paris, Dec. 2.—When the members
of the cabinet visited'the Elysee thii
morning Grevy said: Tha events of
the past few days convince me that in
the interests of the republic I
bound not to resign, I have reoei
from various parliamentary quartan,
communications asking me to remain
in office, therefore I think it my duty
to retain my official functions. Gravy
in conference with the ministers alluding to the intrigues of the Ferryists
said. " It is all very artfully contrived,
but tbe game is now apparent aad
those who plsy it were in a hurry to aet
at the presidential table, but they an
going to be appointed."
2:36 p. m.—President Grevy's message of resigning the presidency of tha
republio hss just been read in the
chamber. In it Grevy saya he regards
the votes taken in the senate and
chamber of deputies yesterday as *
decisive demonstration necessitating
his resignation. After recalling hia
services to the oountry which' esaared
tranquility at home and peace abroad
he declared that he leaves the office
with a feeling of sadness while declining to be responsible for futureerents.
The deputies received the message
with profound silence. M. Flouquet
read the letter from the president of
the senate, summoning congress to the
chambers at Versailles for the purpoaa
of electing a new president. The sitting then closod amid cries of "viva
Ln Republiquo."

Iii the ordinary course of events
Uio provincial legislature may expect to he called together before
long for the dispatch of business.
Wo presume the members of the
government are already engaged in
preparing the estimates for next
year and completing the annual reports of the various departments.
While this preparation is going on
we beg to suggest the need of constructing a road from this oity to
the settlement on tho North Arm of
the Fraser. It has hitherto been
supposed that the construction of
suoh a road wonld involve a large
expenditure, but we have the assurance of a gentleman of considerable
practical experience in road-making,
who has examined the route, that
a fairly good wagon road could be
made (or about $5,000. That such
a road is urgently needed, everyone
acquainted with the circumstances
will readily admit In summer, the
people of the North Arm may reach
the oity by water; but this arm of
the river is liable to freeze over in
winter and remain frozen for several
weeks, during which there is practically no communication between
the city and the settlement. A good
road along tho river would be of
great value to this line, growing
settlement, whioh is one of the most
important in the province, and we
hope the government will not fail to
put in the estimates a sum sufficient
for that purpose.
Victoria is   g.-eatly exoited just
now over the notice given  by  the
Esquimalt & Nanaimo Bailway Oo.
of an intention to extend its road to
the Straits of Fuca.   The press of
the capital throws up its cap and
announces with great glee thut Victoria will thus become  the   actual
terminus  of  the Northern Pacific
Bailway.   The object of  the  proposed extension, we are told,   is to
make connection with an American
line whose northern terminus will
be at Fort Angeles, on the opposite
side of the straits.   This road will
probably be a branch of the Northern Pacific, and will leave the main
line about Kalama. Alarge ferry isto
carry trains across the straits, the
distance being only about 10 miles.
There is nothing at all impracticable
in the scheme.   A ten-mile ferry is
infinitely more feasible than the 76-
mile ferry bo much  talked   off between the O.P.K. terminus and Victoria.   But, after all, it is not eusy
to see where the projectors of the
scheme expeot to get a paying business.   The distance from Kalama to
Port Angeles is about 150 miles, and
the  country  through   which   the
road  would pass is not one of any
considerable resources.   The trade
that would come over the line would
be almost exclusively  confined  to
Victoria.   Persons wishing to reach
the O.P.B. would prefer the all rail
route  whioh   will  very shortly be
completed along the sound  to  this
city, where connection will be made
with the Canadian road.    Most of
the provincial freight   and   passenger  traffio  now  comes over the
O.P.B, and the new route will not
perceptibly affect this traffic.   We
have no desire to deprive the  Victoria press of whatever comfort it
may get from this new proposal, but
it seems to us very unlikely that it
will ever become an accomplished
fact.
Petersburg bearing Bismarck's name
may have been concocted by persons
connected with the Russian court,
and who resortod to this means of
widening the breach botween the
two countries'and multiplying tho
chances of war., Great results often
spring from trivial circumstances,
and it is not beyond possibility that
the meeting at Berlin may ut leust
postpone the great struggle which
statesmen tell us is surely coming
upon Europe.

It U stated that one very important result of the recent interview between the Emperor of Germany and the Russian Czar iB the
discovery that certain despatches of
a very offensive nature received at
St Petersburg some time ago were
forgeries. These despatches purported to have been sent by Bismarck, whosesignature they have,and
they are said to have been to a great
extent the cause of the hostile feeling
that hu lately sprung up between
the court! of Berlin and St. Petersburg. During the interview at Berlin something was said about these
pespatches, and Bismarck promptly
denied all knowledge of them.. The
czar was profoundly moved by the
earnestness of the denial and the
suspicion that he had been made the
victim of a trick, and he promised
that the papers would be sent from
St Petersburg for Bismarck's personal inspection. Of course the discovery of the fraudulent character of
these despatches will naturally pro
duce a reaction at both courts.
When a person has wronged another
under the impulse of misleading information, the discovery of the
fraud is usually followed by a desire
to make amends for the injustice
done. Whether the operations of
this law will be far-reaching enough
to restore cordial friendship between
Germany and Russia, it would bo
diffioult to say. Probably the
breach ia too wide to be successfully
bridged by sentiment. If the whole
arrangement was in the hands of the
emperor and the czar, it would be
simple enough; but there are others
on both sides who must be consulted,
and whose Views do not always harmonize with those of their sovereign. There is a great deal of
jealously between the courts of St.
Petersburg and Berlin, and many
reckless people in both cities would
be glad {to tie the two nations in-
volved in war. It is hinted tbat the
obneiioue despatches  sent  to  St.
Canadian Pacific
RAILWAY.

7. GENEROUS MINERS.
TIM Toller, of Montana Show that The»
an' Not D..p.rado...
Tlio traffic manager of tho Northern
Pa ire r. rn. 1 told me a flue story character'
i i ui llioai big-hearted miners. Mr.
i .ivi.i 1 nrl taken his aged father and
r o n r up into the heights of ono ol the
it.oiiiitiuns that shadows Butte. It was
1 lu 'ii in lira distant. While thoy were
i.i -r; i.ig ihere a snow storm swept upon
t • • i. an r ilur sudden change caused Mr.
1 ,r id's father to sillier from an attack of
I . iiiya.s. The old gentleman was help-
i W nml his son was perplexed. He
was fifteen miles from civilization and
Ira I no conveyance to reach it. He
lia.'piMi.rd to renin,nber that not for
uvvny on the mountain sido was a camp
nf min rn, He walke.l to tho camp and
to .n I them just sitting down after their
il'iuni lo a game of rar.ls. Ho apologized
lur iiitrnd.'ng upon them and said:
'■!.*, 1 am in Irouol \" The cards fell
out oi Iheir hands and ther were on
their rjiet ready for his relief. Ho told
thrrrii Iris story. "Welt, stranger," said
the ion l''r, "we'll git the old man down
tli.r mountain safe and sound; bnt you'll
have to git the oil-woman down the
Lent yon can, 'cause, you know, we aln t
n r.,1 to li.rndlin' women, are we boys?"
Anrlntthrj mention of a woman's name
tlu speaker's hart baud went up to hla
eyes, but in a seirond he recovered and
s.'ri t to Mr. l'avto: "You lead the yttj
and we'll foller."
"i'hay toiled up the mountain nntil
they came to tho nut where the old

* The business ol hiring ont gentlemen's
dress suits for balls and parties hu lor
yoan been an e very-day thing, and a fait
proportion of the claw-hammer coats
seen at mixed gatherings are hired bom
the costuinor. Th i renters of these garments drive a very profitable trade, often
in less than a month getting the lull
price of a first-class broadcloth suit from
its hire, and the garments are very little
the worse for wear. »A wjJlUtnown Philadelphia coetumer has now in his possession a favorite suit which is yet good lor
a year's hiring, lor which he paid t.
and which in less than ten months has
nett rl bim $i)5. Kqually as common a
thing Ijniii renting from evening to evening ui hall room costumes for ladies who
can t niroKl to buy expensive drosses for
mi.- or rwo occasions. They can hire a
ballroom dress, shoes, stockings, and lace
shawl, which would cost WO, from $5 to
S'Jra night. If thoy are known they
are not required to leave a deposit, otherwise the price of tbo outfit is lelt with
tho costumer, to be returned when the
dress comes back.
".Such outfits," said s man who has
been in the business in Philadelphia for
ten years, "are often hired by brides and
bridesmaids, and for a consideration wo
often make special costumes ol the most
costry character for such occasions. By
this means st hall cost a bride may be
rigged up as fine as though she were an
heiress. We take the dresses .back and
use them to hire out to other parties who
aro hot particular about absolutely new
costumes and thus make a very fair
proilt"
One costumer ln Philadelphia who
does a very large business In a quiet way
for tho fashionable people, has in hu
possession $25,000 worth of dresses, robes,
shawls, and other female finery which
has come to him in various ways. Many
rich people, he says, sell their ball-room
dresses at the end of a season,. They
will uot use them a second season, and
get back a part ot the cost in thi* way.
These dresses an hired out to alecs particular people, who are thus, upon special
occasions, able to appear in finery aa
elaborate and rich as that ot the most
elegant ladies ol West Walnut street.

The Ujbeg women ar* jealously tapt
out ol sight ol a mala stranger, ami
though ho may be a distinguished guest,
nn.l he is expected to be amused by
dancing boys called batches and musicians. The musical instruments ot central Asia are somewhat limited In number. One I saw at Bokhara resembled a
guitar, forty-six Inches long, with a
Bounding board bin* inch** by four. II
might be played with » bow « With the

the flageolet, and had something of th*
haii thoy sound, or between tbat and the

lore a charcoal fire In a braxier, aver
whicli Irom time to time they hold their
instruments to tighten the parchment.

Ther, Too, Long for What 1. Far Beyond
Th.tr Bench.
So far from being narrow the man of
genius must, one should say, bo broad in
the range of bis conception, und if not in
that, of bis execution. There is a sense,
indeed, in which every artist would be
the gainer t.y becoming universal. Thus
tbe [io t and the painter may each profit
fro'ir a mil and exact study of tho facts
of natural science. But then the artistic
benefit depends on the subject being
studied not as a savant woulrl study it,
merely for the precise knowledge, but for
the sake of the poetical or pictorial aspects, relations and suggestions whieh
the facts present.
So truo is this that one is hardly going
too far in laying it down as a canon that
a pui liter might to bo a goo I reosoner on
the enures of natural phenomena, and
(bat a paint ir ought not to be an authority in thi' realm, Bay, of purely historical
anil etlric.il discussion. The lives of great
men have often shown us a strange and
perversa inclination to brenk through the
bounds of their proper domain. More
than one man of undoubted genius has,
it is averred, expressed regret that he
had not attained distinction in some other
line than bis own. Wolfe, when actually
engaged in his last crowning foat of generalship, srri.l that he would rather have
writlon Gray's "Meg)'.':'
Goethe, not satisfied to bo the greatest
of German poets, was ambitious to become a aavant as well. Such facts appear
at first sight to contradict our theory that
superlative performance of any kind implies a corresponding concentration of
impulse. Yet ths contradiction is only
apparent. We may be sure thntWolfo—
who, by the way, became a soldier soon
after ho was Jtl—was, on tbe whole, more
passionately dosirous of military than of
poetic distinction, just aB we know that
in Goethe the poetic impulse was the
most potent and nermanont. Such occasional roving ambitions may mean nothing more than that tho great man, like
Ihe small one, ia apt (o overestimate what
lies beyond his reach, or perhaps that
bo, moro than common men, is aware of
the limitations tbat hoin him in, and is
now and again disposed to rebel against
them.—Gsntlemen't Magazine.

Th. Soman ttltt.
In the early days the strictest kind ol
marriage conferred on the Roman wife
privilege* which ware considerable in
extent and honorable in degree. When
married by the law ol "cum conventlone"
and with tho form of "confarreatio"—the
two eating together the sacred salted
cake, and she, the bride, promising to
share with her husband water and lire-
she was set in a place of personal dignity
and moral power; and though she belonged to the community theState took
care of her interests and provided tor her
welfare. Her legal personality was
certainly merged in that of her husband,
who was emphatically the master ol the
household; she was counted aB one of
his family, and was no longer under the
protection of her own; but she was secure from tho caprice and could not be-
divorced at his pleasure. Nor might she
he ill used; ana she was as much mistress in the house as he was master.
"Ubitu Gaius, ego Gain," she said to her
bridegroom when she was lifted over his
threshold as a reminiscence of the time
when she had been won by violence and
carried off by force "where thou arl
lord I am lady," was her half-threatening promise of self-assertion. Anrl tbe
Una an woman was not one to uso this
formula faltoringly—not one whose dignity of command oould be easily Botteuod
Or doltocted by love. Bourn! by this
double link of law and religion, the
wife's legal position was that of her husband's child, but she was protected
against that breath of paternal power
which made the father both the law and
the executive in his own household and
enabled him to sell his children into
slavery or to put them to death for certain ollenses. She wss free from the
domination of her own father, and her
luw'iand'a was restricted. Sho inherited
from her husband equally, but only
equally, with her children, and as a
daughter she shared with her brothers.
1'nllke tbe Greek heiress, who, as with
the I'astern women, was something that
went with the estates rather than the
free holder of property—taken over as an
obligation integral to the inheritance, like
the fixtures in the house or the stock on
tho farm—the Soman widow inherited
on her own account, and the Roman
girl endowed the man she married. This
legal consideration was the reward of
personal merit and dated back to the
foundation of the empire. By their refusal to leave their Roman husband when
the Sa'dne Army came down to avenge
the rape which had made their virgins
wives and mother, tho women saved
Rome. Komnlus rewarded thorn with
honors for themselves and wholo class
of matrons. The curies were called by
the namo of tho Sabine wives.
Xh* Ctakettef. Jaw Dropped.
Ono ol those smart Alexanders who
travel on cheek and the inability of the
public to change $21) bills for a glass of
soda or four tobies got on a I'onn avenue
car the other day and tendered the
aloresaid $-0 lor bis fare. Of course the
conductor could not change it, nnd so he
got his ride free. This was repeated until the conductor got tired of it and after
tho fourth or fifth time of its repetition
he determined to get even with tlie fellow. Ry visiting tho toll-houses, and by
other means unknown, the manipulator
of the bell-punch managed to scrape up
Si9.il.' iu pennies,    i
Placing these in a Utile bucket be
quietly awaited tho appearance ot his
victim, having posted the driver and
some other intimnto friends who happened to bo on board. When the unsuspecting young man with the plethoric
pocketbook put in an appearance and
promptly produced the "1!U" with many
apolurd a tlio conductor pocketed hill
ami produced his little bucket, and amid
Ihe grin* of spictators presented it to
lis ilistener. The young man looked
pretty i h air, and, after fooling tho belt
of Ih i inn* •-, thoughtfully got off the
car and disappeared around a cornor.
Then the conductor took the bill from
his pocket and proceeded to fold It up
n I'dy, so that ft would At into a con-
venicnt corneroUris pocket-hook. Something in tbo appearance of tho bill caught
his eye, and. as ho examined it a little
ciirs r, his jaw dropped nbout a foot.
The hill was of the genus denominated
by tbe sporting fraternity as "queer."
The young man had also been laying for
the conductor.

Moderate Freight Bates.
Lost wesk the Fraser ltiver Freezing oompany shipped two carloads of
frozen salmon to Montreal over the
Canadian Pacific Railway. The total
number of pounds in tho two oars
amounted to 42,000 lbs. The company complain at the high rates of
freight charged them by tho railway
whioh was $1,210 for the two cars,
payable in advance. The rate ia about
♦2.76 per 100 lbs, and it certainly
seems extortionate on that olass of
freight. It is to be hoped that rates
will not be made so high as to kill
what promises to be one of our greatest industries.

Te the Laud orthe Free.
"H. W. Otton, grocer," is a familiar
sign over a storo on Cordova street,
"but tho place that knew him once
shall know him no more again forever."
for he has joined the ranks of the
Canadian buodle brigade, in the land
of tho free. Otton was a quiet, ploa-
fsnt young fellow, and it is generally
supposed that ho was doing a good
business. Shortly before leaving he
purchased heavily from local dealers
and then turned his stock ovor to another man. Quite a number have
been nipped, but they will only have
to grin and bear it. It is a question
whether Otton has gone to Seattle or
back to Ontario.—Fawrouirei* Herald.

Wns II Imrrnilliir)?
Editor Coldmiiian:—Seeing a statement in the Columbian of Nov. 16th.
and tlio Victoria Times oi Nov. 18th.
of the burning of Mr. Amos Bowman's
dwelling houso and barns, nnd that it
was the work of an incendiary, and
that it wob ono of a series of persecutions
carried out against the Bowman family,
and that Mrs. Bowman and family
were absent ut tho time, permit mo a
fow observations. Thero is no doubt
but Mrs. Bowman and family wore
absent; but your informant did not
tell you thnt some person or persons
connected with the Bowman family
were firing up nnd washing in Mr,
Bowman's dwelling house on the same
day that the lire occurred. Although,
your informant did not tell you this,
it is a fact, and the cloths were hanging on the lino tho next morning after
the fire. As it to being generally believed that it was the work of an incen-
diary,thatisall bosh. Thereareafew here
who cry incendiary. They sail in the
same boat with tho Bowmans, and they
do this to appear sympathetic and to
gratify a vindictive spirit by hinting
in a knowing way that some person
did it. It ia tho opinion of a great
many hero, as well as my own, that it
was not the work of an incendiary, and
I candidly believe that there is not one
man in this settlement mean enough
to do such a cowardly act. Your informant, in giving you an account of
the losses by the nre, did not tell you
that my neighbor had a stuck of hay
and his barn timbers burned in the lire
in Mr. Bowman's barn, he boing absent at Westminster on the jury at the
timo. Nor did your informant tell
you how that stack of hay and barn
timbers got into Mr. Bowman's barn.
Well, I could toll you, but I do not
wish to add to the list of trumped-up
persecutions at present. If I see any
more about thoso persecutions in print,
I will send the public a full list of tho
acts for which tho Bowman family consider they hnve been persecuted, a list
ver'tied by affidavits, nnd leave it to
the public to judgo who is the persecuted party. But I suppose your
informant acted upon tho principle of
the old addngo, thst those who squeal
firstgetuioitsympathy.Byinsertingthe
above iu your paper I will foo 'obliged.

As wilt be seen by our despatches,
Mr. J. W.' Whiteley, of Newfoundland,
has returned to San Franoisco from an
extended visit to the coast of British
Columbia and the adjacent Islands.
Mr. Whitoly wns sent out to this province by tlie Newfoundland and Labrador fishermen to examine into the
possibilities of establishing, with success, fishing villages and tu make personal observations into the fishing
industry  hero.     He  is  more  than
fdoased with ull be has seen and sneaks
n very enthusiastic terms of tbe tisheries of British Columbia. Tho points
selected for the future villages are on
the Queen Charlotte Islands Group,
where, he says, the land and numerous inlots oiler every shelter necessary
for carrying on the industry with safety. The waters, Mr. Wnitely says,
are fairly teeming with fish and he was
positively astounded at the immense
quantities he saw. The fishermen
whomMrWhitelyrepresentshnvesuffer-
eu terjtbly of late years on tho Labru-
tor and Newfoundland coasts, and
being reduced almost to starvation by
the repeated failures of Ihe catch are
now preparing to migrate to British
Columbia where they will find hotter
fishing grounds and a more congenial
climate.
