Enton Dr Sharks.
Jacksonvilu;, Flu., Oct. 27.—
Tho dread of the mail-curriers on
the Florida south-east coast are the
Hillsboro and New Rivers Inlets,
which have to be crossed by small
boats. Here the dark waters of the
Everglades empty into the Atlantic
with tremendous force at this season, and if the ocean is rough the
meeting of the cross currents pro
duces heavy and dangerous seas.
Sharks of the fiercest kind fill the
inlets, James E. Hamilton, the
mail-carrier from Miami to Lake
Worth, was an atheltic young man
and carried tho light mail on his
shoulders, walking the entire distance, seventy-five miles, on the
beach. He left Lake Worth on
Tueday, in tbe morning, and should
have reached Refuge Station, twenty-
five miles distant, that afternoon.
Late at night a fisherman named
Waring came to the station and
told the story of Hamilton's horrible death. Waring was about
half a mile from Hillsboro Inlet
when he saw Hamilton get into his
beat to cross. He noted that the
sharks were about in unusual numbers, and just as Hamilton reached
the centre of the crossing, a huge one
drove at the boat and bit a piece
off the gunwale. Hamilton struck
nt the sharks, but nothing could
drive them off. Soon both oars
were bitten in two, and then the
fierce tigers of the sea seemed perfectly ravenous. They tore at the
boat,_napped at one another, and
and the water for yards around was
dyed with their blood. Tho boat
began to fill, and the sharks,'scenting their prey, redoubled their dashes' Hamilton stood on the middle
seat as if stupfied glaring at
them. Looking up and seeing Waring, he cried out to him but in vain.
Even as he shouted a huge shark
dashed up aud hit the partially
filled boat a tremendous blow, throw
ing Hamilton out into the midst of
the monsters. A cry of agony was
heard as he went down, and the
devourers had him piecemeal before
the horror-stricken spectator could
take in the full measure of the
tragedy. As soon as Waring recovered his senses he went to the
station and told of the affair. A
searching party went out at once,
but nothing was found save the
remnants of the boat cost on the
shore. The terrible catastrophe
has cast a deep gloom over the coast
people, and no one has yet accepted
the position of mail-carrier over
that route.
Uterprorinclal ftnfercnce.
Qukbbo, Oct 28.—The conference
will complete its labors on Thursday,
and when the result ofthcir deliberations shall have been made known
it will be seen that they have performed a service of infinite value to
the country. They will hove
brought into prominence the intentions of tlio men who in 18C4 laid
the basis for confederation. Details
of the scheme proposed to the conference cannot of course be obtained,
but its general effect will be to make
the provinces more self-reliant in
financial matters nnd to obviate the
necessity of periodical raids on the
Dominion treasury. It is supposed
to effect this object partly by restor
ing certain sources of revenue to the
provinces and partly relioving them
of certain expenditures whioh it is
thought the Dominion government
ought more properly to bear. It is
probable tho conference will suggest
such a ohange in the constitution of
the senate as will make it really re-
representative of the people, with
such provisions as will remove the
danger of the deadlock in caso of a
conflict with the lower chamber.
The resolutions embodying the views
of the conference will be forwarded
to tlio government and parliament
of the Dominion, but, of course, lite
matter will rest there. The object
of the provinces is to obtain some
much-needed amendments to the
British Norlh America Act. It is
unnecessary to sny that Sir John
will not help that idea To Iravo
the inaltci' with h'-n would therefore bo the goose committing itself
to tbo care of the fox. Besides this,
there is the other consideration, viz.,
Mint the form that was obsorved in
the first case mny with propriety be
followed in the seoond. In 1864
resolutions were passed at Quebec,
followed by nddrnssei from the local
legislatures to tlie crown, asking for
tlio British North America Act.
Obviously therefore that is tho thing
to do in 1887. Somo objection may
bo offered, based on tho fact of there
being a federal govornmsnt at Ottawa, which there wus not in 1864.
At any rate, the course indicated is
the one which, it is believed, will bo
followed. It is so palpably the cor-
correot ono The provinces are in
this caso parties to a suit in whioh
Sir John'sgoverntnent is the defendant, or prisoner criminally charged,
as it were; so that it will bo in evory
way better to address themselves
directly to the judge. An interesting conversation has boon held
amongst the delogatcs from the
maritime provinces *on the subject
of a possible maritime union, but the
concensus of opinion led to the conclusion that the present time was
not. .the moment for officially broaching the subject. It was stated in a
former despatch that a deputation
would .probably go to England in
order to have the views of the conference carried into effect by imperial legislation. It is probable that
this deputation will be strengthened
by addresses from the various provincial legislatures endorsing resolutions passed by the conference.

THE ANAllOlltSTS HANGING—BEADY POR
TROUBLE.
Chicago, 111., Nov. 4. — Captuin
Schaaok was called on to-day and askod
whnt disposition ho had made of the
forces now under his command.
"Woll," said ho, "wo have two companies of twenty-lire policemen each,
nnti from Chicago avoiuio iusido tho
jail day nnd night. Every man of
them is well drilled and armed with
rifles, bayonets, nnd heavy calibre revolvers. Outside tho jail wo havo ono
company of ttvonty-fivo mon. Thon
wo hare 18 men at the water works,
well arinod, also several companies in
resen-o at Chicago avonue and Web
ster avenue." "Within what tuns
could you concentrate any large bod*
at tbe jail" "At fifteen minutes notice wo could bring 600 men with
muskets to the jail. "Are yon in
possession of any well founded rumors
of threatened dangers!" "I hare
hoard stories that I believed to be
woll founded, some of which I discovered upon searching investigation
to be baseless. Somo throats, how-
over I know to have been made, and
tho men who mnde the threats ore suoh
as might do harm." "Then you think
triiat no considerable body of persons
can assemble anywhere near without
your being easily able to disperse
tliom?" ''I moan to say that if anything so rash as a rescue or riot is
attempted, all their plans would be
knocked endwise at the first more,
and should such a thing be persisted
in, more dead bodies, will strew the
ground than fell in the Haynurket.
They would simply be knocked to
pieces."

THIS AriERIfOOH'S DESPATCH1S.
CHINA NEWS.
San Francisco, Nov. 4.—The str.
City of New York arrived from the
orient at noon to-day. A hundred
and sixty-four thousand Mexican dollars were seized at Manilla. An It-
tempt was made to smuggle them into
tho port.
Particulars of the loss of the Way-
lee, Chinese transport, state that three
hundred Chinese and five Europeans
were lost. Immediately after the vessel struck she began to break up and
a scene of tbe wildest confusion ensued. Soldiers fought with one another
for possession of the boats and refused
to allow tho officers and crew to lower
them. It is said if the soldiers, had
allowed the boats tu be lowered erery
soul would have been saved. The
typhoon of Sept. 17th struck the
Island of Hoi Ling off the China oosat
uud caused nearly two hundred deaths.
Much anxiety is folt in Hong Kong
regarding the overdue British gunboat
Wasp. She carried seventy-three men
aud was last seeu in a typhoon.
Toronto) Mountain in Japan became
active on the 7th ult. Sand, stones,
and ashes are falling in all directions.
No lives wore lost.

'      A IIORRIRLB TRAGEDY.   "
Loctlville, Ky., Nov. 4.--A ter'
rible tragedy waa enaotted in the western portion of the oity list'night, ths ■
awful results of which were not diar
covered until ten o'clock this morning..
At that hour Mrs. Mary Bruner,. mother of Mrs. Charles B. Brownfield,,
colled at the residence of her daughter..
No one answered her ring at the door
bell and after several inefleetlial elfcrts'
she went to the window of the little
ono story frame cottage, raised it and
throw opon the shutters and tbe sight
tlmt met her eyes was horrible beyond
description. Her daughters' husband
was hanging dead, and the bod* of W.
F. Bruner, her son was near bun With
his throat out from ear to ear. In the
next room were the dead bodies of
Mrs. Brownfield and a 9 year eld child
were found, their holds almost serered
from their bodies. Brownfield left *
note stating he was tired ot life because of gambling and he murdered. Us'
wife and baby as he did not want to '
leave them penniless. He killed his
brother-in-law because he did not think
he was fit to live. .

It is stated that no opposition
will bo offered to Mr. Humphreys
in Oomox, and that he will, consequently, be elected by acclamation.
We hope the report is not true.
Oomox may not be a good place to
produce public men, and if it has
failed to produce one more worthy
of confidence and support than Mr.
Humphreys, it is surely a region
wonderfully barren of intellectual
and moral growth. We have already
expressed the opinion that the election of Mr. Humphreys would bo a
great misfortune not only to the
constituency which he is chosen to
represent but to the whole province.
He belongs to a olass of men from
whom nothing useful and very littlo
that is honorable may be expected;
and at a time when an elfort ought
to be made to raise the standard of
the house, it is a pity that any constituency should aocept a third-rate
man whose reputation has been
suoh as to cause him repeated defeats at the polls.
The refusal of the supreme court
of the United States to reopen the
cose of the Chicago anarchists takes
away the last chance of escape from
the gallows. It is scarcely possible
that the governor of Illinois will
grant a pardon or commutation of
tho sentence. Publio safety demands
that these bloodthirsty agitators who
threaten the lives of unoffending
people, and who were proved to be
responsible for the death of several
citizens of Chicago, should be suppressed with exemplary firmness.
Communism has grown to be a dangerous element in America, and
unless the unprincipled adherents to that system of spoils are
taught to respect the majesty of the
law, no one can tell what mischief
they may accomplish. It ia probable
the condemned anarchists will pay
the penalty of their wickedness on
the Ilth inst., and we hope the
event may pass without any rash
Mt of retaliation on the port of
their sympathizers.
Ayoub Khan, who has for some
time been keeping an eye on the
throne of Afghanistan, seems to be
distantly related to the historical
cat with nine lives. More than
once he has been leported dead, and
on the last occasion the report seems
to hare been generally accepted as
true. Late advices, however, intimate that he is not only alive, but
kicking, and that his arrangements
are of an aggressive kind which
causes considerable anxiety both in
Cabol and London. The normal
condition of affairs in Afghanistan
is one of unrest, and the world need
not be surprised to learn at any
moment that some fierce khan has
made a break for the national treasury. The ameer for the time being
has never been enthusiastically
popular, and Ayoub's expatriation
seems to have enlisted for him the
sympathies' of a considerable number til his countrymen. This arises
chiefly from the well known principle that distance lends enchantment to the view; but there is no
doubt that if Ayoub is really alive,
and undertakes an active canvass
for the Afghan throne, he may make
it uncommonly unpleasant for present arrangements. Ayoub Khan
do k great deal of misohief if he
gets a fair chance. His reappearance among the disaffected and warlike tribes as a candidate for the
throne would have very much the
aame effect as a firebrand throne
into a powder magazine — there
would be an explosion, and some-
liody would probably get hurt.
Among the freight brought to
Vancouver by the str. Premier on
her last trip from the sound were
1100 sacks of flour consigned to
Viotoria. As an illustration of the
wonderful changes that have taken
place in the avenues of trade in this
province since the completion of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, this incident is worthy of note. Before
the opening of the railway, all
freight for British Columbia (with
few exceptions) was forced to pass
through Viotoria, which thus lie-
came the great distributing point
for all provincial imports and exports. But now things are very
different The great bulk of goods
coming to this province is curried
over the 0. P. R., and necessarily
reaches the mainland first, and is
sent thenee to Victoria. Freight
coming from China and Japan for
Victoria by tiio regular steamers is
also being brought to Vancouver
direct, and is there transhipped und
lightered to its destination. And
now. tbe Oregon flour, which has
hitherto been brought from the
sound direct to Victoria by the
sound steamer, is actually being carried, first fo the mainland and distributed fhencetoVancouverlslandl
Canadian and other freight coming
by rail for Victoria ia distributed at
Westminster, the fresh water ter-
min4* of the road; while freight
from the sound, as well as from the
oriefyls distributed froth Vancouver, the salt water terminus. This
is a complete commercial revolution;
■nd *hen we have wholesale houses
established in this eity we shall be
able to supply Victoria retail merchants on such advantageous terms
that we shall secure thut trade also.
The placing of the Premier on the
route between Puget Sound ports
and Vnncouver has produced results
which few people would have sup-
A Sluggish Liver
the Stomach and Bowels to become disordered, aud tho wholts system
to suffer from debility. Iu all such
cases Ayer's Pills give prompt relief.
After much suffering from Liver and
Stomach troubles, 1 have llnally been
cured by taking Ayer's Cathartic Pills.
I always fint! them prompt and thorough
ln their action, and their occasional uso
keeps me in aperfectly healthy condition. —Ralph Weeman, Annapolis, Md.
Twenty-five years ago I suffered from
a torpid liver, which wus restored to
healthy action by taking Ayer's Pills.
Since that time I have never been without them. They regulate the bowels,
assist digestion, and increase the appetite, more surely than any other medicine.—Paul Churchill, Haverhill, Mass.
INVIGORATED.
I know of no remedy equal to Ayer's
Pills for Stomach and Liver disorders.
I suffered from a Torpid Liver, and Dyspepsia, for eighteen months. My skin
was yellow, and ray tongue coated. I
had no appetite, suffered from Headache, was pale and emaciated. A few
boxes of Ayer's Pills, taken in moderate
doses, restored me to perfect health.—
Waldo Miles, Oberlin, 0'.do.
Ayer's Pills ore a superior family
medicine. They strengthen and invigorate the digestive organs, create an appetite, and remove the horrible depres-
lion and despondency resulting irom
Liver Complaint. I have used theso
Pills in my family, for years, and they
never fall to give entire satisfaction,—

IkCaxiagwx. ANTELOPE GETTING SCARC
The Gum. Going Down Boron tho Ootts
of Tho Hunters.—Bnby Antelope.
"You* dty people who want sport
and neyer do anything but fish a little
in the small stream near by, ought to
eome up to Fort Bidwell," said Jonathan Cirpin to a reporter.
"Thero is the biggest lot of antelope
north or* Fort Bidwell and beyond the
Orr'gou line I over saw. Very pretty
tiVy nr.', too, with beautiful tawny
skins nn I prrieo'irl rrrrririge.
"It's almost Hi pity to Kill them, but
tlii'y do it. lt won t lie long till ths
nntelop., like the Irriil'iilo, will hnvo to
take a li-ii-k sunt; Tttlrro won't be any
left. ■Norvhr'rr -u's-i iu Galifornln are
antelopri now to be found, and nowhere
contirniors to the state but on the
plains of eastern Oregon. Bnt the latter region is, or liiurli of it, already just
like the great, American desert It
looks as though it was too great in extent mi I too liarren to evarbe -anything
else Inn Ihe Homo of priiirio dogs, wolves
and tnese nntelopes.
"Wc know enough about the progress
of tlu country gimi>rnlly, though to
know Hint this irannot Ire. Water will
be lirniitiliton the hind; it will be made
Croilnrtive, uii'l the giime will go down
efnre tire guns of the hunters.
"There are in lend a grent many antelope there. Two weeks ago I saw four
or fire bands while crossing over from'
Oregon in a wnyon. There were aa
many as twenty or thirty together hi
some of tho drove* In others then)
wore from seven to a dozen.
"There is no difficulty abont Becing
Elenty of them. Wo killed three anil
n.l the best antelope steak to eat you
ever saw. We only saved out the best
merit.
"There have been a gooil many killed
lately—partly for sport, partly to tine al
meat. I don't think the skins have
been saved at all.
"Th to nro some of the funniest little
antelope there yon ever bsw—little bits
of rleliirate, graceful things only a couple
of months old. Very pretty, t'io, they
are. A f two or a lamb doesn't begin
to impress you the way one of these
running iitt e antelopes does. Women
go wild tilrout them when they see
tliem, Perhaps there is no living
thing, Inuring n little child, that they
nre sn taken with as a baby antelope.
"Ther.r have u. ways been lots of antelope near the Nevada lino and out toward Idaho, but I think the last winter
must have been unusually good for
them, else there wouldn't be so many
now. Thero seems to be a good many
more than during any single yoar for
some time past.
"If there is any law against killing
them I have never heard of it, and nobody pays any attention to it, anyhow,
if there is. I think it wouldn't be a
bad plan if there was such a law, because they aro now too scares on the
continent, generally speaking, to have
them kitlodbiT."
The Ohtneto Emperor's Wive.,
D'Hcrisson's "Journal of an interpreter in China" has an amnsing account of his adventure at the summer
palace, which brought him into tha
midst of the Son of Heaven's wives.
While the pillage was going on, hs went
to breathe fresh air in the imperial
Cnrk, which ho found the perfection of
rndscape gardening. His curiosity was
so excited, that be went on from temple
to pagoda, pavilion to pyramid, from
porticos and colon.ides to artificial
mountains, and along brooks and isle-
stnrliliril ponds or. lakes, through groves,
labyrinths and giolto'S. i'lveryihing
appeared to him ostouudingly beautiful
nud astonishingly fantastical. A strange
building with creeping plants, that
twisted around the dragons with twisted
tails within the pole of nature. This
strange building was the coach-house,
mill contained ths carriage and harness
(which hod never been used) that
George III. sent by Lord Macartney to
the Mon of Heaven... Hard by was a
large pond. Barges and canoes for imperial personages, all gilded, lacquered,
and richly carved, were moored at little
wharves. They contained fishing-tackle
of a piece with all the rest. Nor were
the fish that darted about in the clear
water less extraordinary, to European
eyes, consisting often of hippocamps, or
water dragons. The famous Tower of
Nankin threw its shadow on this pond.
Comte d'Herisson saw on an island
•uother palace of porcelain and carved
sandal wood. He jumped disrespectfully into a gondola upholstered Inside
with yellow silk, milled across, ascending three marble steps entered a spacious chamber surrounded with yellow
silk divans, and redolent with the per-
fume ol precious wood. He thought he
li ard something, and hand on sword
listened. Tha sound of siiothered sighs
reached his ears. Noticing tho abrupt
elevations on the cushions of the divans
he kicked of one, heard a sharp cry, and
saw a lady in rich, flowery costume
gathered up on all fours like a rabbit.
Slio crawled to where he was, placed
her forehead on the ground, and displayed the nape of a neck, above which
black hair was fastened by jeweled bodkins. Tho count felt how extremely
ridiculous He ytab with his hand on his
sword hilt, and the lady at his feet, Ho
tntirl to ber in Chinese, "Don't fear, and
mt up." She rose on her llttlo feet,
which were in their shoes the aise and
shape of a dty.old foal. Her beauty
was odoraWR^
When she arose all the other cushions
mow d, and the head of another beauty
peeped from beneath each. There were
in ull twenty-seven ladies, and the
i.i.an.l palace was the Son of Heaven's
seraglio. All of them got down and
to.Idled to the French soldier, formed a
mi; uround him, touched tlie floor with
ti.eir lovely foreheads, and lavishod on
liini other marks of reaped and sub-
lu.nsion.

The Chain of Seven Pins.
In the museum ofthe Motel Cluny in
.Paris, there is a curious chain. Shoul 1
you search ever so closely, I hardly
think you would find it, for it is n.very
small, insignificant looking object:—
Seven pins, hot oven of one sizo and almost entirely eaten through with rust,
joined together in a gold chain of seven
links at the en 1 of eaeh of which are
miniature golden shackles! It rests in
a velvet case; — case and all recall the
taste of the last century but, as I havo
said, it is very insignificant in appearance; it is hardly worth seeing, certainly not worth searching for. But I
was interested in it and in answer to
my enquiry, the old custodian told mo
the following story.
"In the year 17*15"—thuB ho began—
'ft young and much respected nobleman, was sentenced to the penitentiary
for a term of twenty years. I do not
lust now know what for, but it is immaterial for the purposes of this story
for there is no doubt that tie prison
was very lonesome—especially to Iii in,
for his life had been gay and jovial.
He demanded, prayed for so-ne surl of
doversioiij but it was stiiblurnly
refused him. He feared that he wo il 1
eventually loose his mind and began,
perhaps already half craned, to seneli
for some object in his small, vacant '-ell
that would occupy it. lie se tivli rl
and searched, nnd behold—after lor.g,
long Search he found—a pin. This, to
be sure, brought him some, though very
little diversion. He consider -il for instance how long the pin had already
been there—it was almost cons lln nl
With rust—then, who had lost it.' Hut
this was about as much as he could expect from one pin anil he stu k it in
his coat Then he began to search
anew—to cut tho matter short, he was
fortunate enough to find six other pins.
True, he searched a long time after trie
seventh pin in tho hope of finding
something else—perhaps another pin —
but all in vain; lie found neither pin
nor anything else. In short, seven
pins: this was all he had found. Not
very much, to be sure, but the prisoner
was nevertheless happy, for even if the
pins he had found could no lon-.'or entertain him, did not their search divert
his mind? Who knows,—perili;n it
took him a year, perhaps two years 11
find them. And whilst revolving t.ru<j
things in his mind, he thought oi a
good means to drivo away thrrspeiro
of loueliness and deadly ennui which
hovered over bim und threaten rl to
darkon his mind forever. "Whit",
thought he, "if I should throw the pi is
away and should search for them ane w'!"
Seizing tho pins which had cost him
so much labor, he hurled them into th r
darkness of his cell, in order to increase
the difficulty of his task, he seattcrrrl
the straw from his bunk about th ■ llooe
ofnis cell. And again he hogui to
search—diligently nnrl persistently iii I
he search—the discovery of the last pin
especially delighted him. We can w -d
imagine how excited he became wh n
he could not fin i the seventh pUi, b • it,
because it had been trodden into tlu
floor or that it had fallen into a irevic
of the wall. Often he would forget to
eat bis meals which had been brought
in while he was searching. He ngi'ii
found all the pins and then cired no
more for them. What a curious game
of pins, that could delight tho spoil' I
nobleman, could divert his thoughts
and make his imprisonment bearable!
Again and again he threw away tb >
pins, again and again did ho gather
Ihein in, bnt even he should hav his
day of resurrection. The kljij.lnl p..
initio;! ten years of Iris s-nl" ic: -i
novel nnd unexpected Scene pr- sur--i
itself to tbe men who op n • I hia mil.
They saw the prisoner cra.vlrn; n . nil
the iloor; he had not beard th mi co a r
in and he was in great ex itean-ii.
When they told him t'uiit he ml'iit
leave the prison he exclaimed! "..o —
pray allow me to remain n little wiri a
longer—until I have found my scrv n:h
pin." All thought him deuuni'e ; lint.
lie was not so, I believe the pins saved
him. After two days tho iiir'ilern rrr
found the seventh pin and hastened
again to enjoy freedom.
'.' The curious fact of a prisoner hogging for an extension of his sent.' tea
reached tho king who could not und r-
stan I it." "But to me," continued the
custodian, tho prayer is not the uvrst
curious thing about the story. The
King summoned the nohleman to a
private audience; he procured the
pins and had them set in this fashion
(or his private museum, whence they
came tothe Muses of the Hotel Chant*.
The Alps.
One cannot command any language
to convey an adequate idea of this magnificence. You are standing far below,
gazing up to where the great disc of the
glitter ng Alps outs the heavens, an I
drinking in the intluonco of the silent
scene inuiiinl. Suddenly an cuor nuns
muss of snow nnd ice, in itself a mountain, seems to move; it hr.nks from the
toppling: outmost mountain ridge o.
snow, where it ia hundreds of feet in
depth, and in its lint fall, of perhaps
2001) feet, ia broken into millions oi fragments. AS you first see th > fin h nf

2000 feet perpendicular- Then flnwa
the whole cataract over tho gulf with a
still loudor roar of echoing thunder.
Another fall of still greater depth un-

If it were possible to rise above the
atmosphere which surrounds the earth,
we should see nothing but an intense and
shapely defined ball of fire, whlo everything else would be wrapped in total
darkness, Thore could bo no difference
of light without an atmosphere or some
similar medium for it to ant upon; but if
the air around us extended to a height of
1100 miles, the rays of the sun could not
penetrato it, and we should bu left in
darkness. At the depth of 70* feet iu the
ocean the light ceases altogether, one-
half of the light being absorbed in passing through seven feet of the purest
water.

The gqouulNh Mirer Trouble.
Some trouble has arisen between
the Indians and Norwegians settlors,
on the Squamish River, over the land
granted the Norwegian by the local
government. The Indians, who did
not lay claiinHo tho whole river front
until the advent of these settlers, tiro
now claiming more than is their just
right. The land iu dispute is to bo
surveyed immediately and tho reservation limits will bo clearly defined
which wo think, will prevont any further misunderstanding and result in
both the Norwegians and tho Indians
being satisfied.

Sale or Stock Kanrhcs.
Mr. J. C. Haynes, of Osooyos, has
sold his great cattle ranges and farm,
together with all his live and dead
stock, buildings, etc., for 8150,000 to
an English company. This is the
largest sale that has taken place in the
province. Mr. Haynes has been a
resident of tho interior since 1859 and
contemplates building a house in Viotoria and spending the balance of his
days here. Nearly adjoining Mr.
Haynes' property, and across the
boundary line, lies the ranch of John
Palmer. This ranch was sold at tho
same time as Mr. Haynes' for 875,000.

Bork Creek Mines.
A letter from Mr. James Wardlo
states that Tom Curry had just arrived
from Reck Creek, and that he had
statod that Douglai and English Bill
above him had struck it rich. Douglas was down about 00 feet, and his
claima showed free gold all through.
Douglas states that he would not take
8400,000 for it. The Cariboo ledge
had boon transferred cither to Mr.
Bryan or Mr. Reed, the price agreed
by tbe former being $150,000, or the
latter puts up a twenty-stamp mill for
one-fourth interest. Steve Mangate
and McKenzie have also struck it rich
on the Kamloops road.—Colonist.
Eloqnenre Cut Short.
An old Frenchman, from tlie inter'
ior, named Felix Payant got inebriated
ut au early hour this morning and proceeded to deliver a speech, ou the
middle of the street, opposite the Colonial. The remarks he make must
have beeu very interesiug for it was
not long before quite a respectnblo
audience had assembled and thoir occasional applause showed tlio subject
must have been appreciated. Constable Pi arse happened along and not
being iu good humor, or in a lit state
of mind to enjoy a uioi-nitig lecture,
interrupted Felix in the middle of his
discourse and lugged him off to tho
lockup. Folix protested and demanded
tlie rights of free speech, but the constable was obdurate and insisted on
locking him up.
Chicken Stealing.
The Chinamen chicken thieves are
carrying on a moat lucrative and successful busiqess in robbing hen roosts,
and up to date have been able to escape capture although some of them
have had a very close call. Mr. Geo.
Turner, C.E., had a nice liltle flock of
10 hens n few .weokrr ago, but this
number has boen reduced to 3 by the
chicken thieves. It was remarked hy
soinoiiiie yoaterday morning that the
hens were not as regular nt ureal time
as usual, and on visiting the
hen-house to discover llio cause
it was found that only three remained
out of the whole hatch. Many other
poople have suffered almost as badly ns
Mr. Turner, though probably the
sweep hns not been s-r clean. If a few
of these tobbers were caught and made
an example off, it would be n wholesome lesson to the rest and probably
have the effect of putting un end to
these depredations
Uirtobrr Weather.
Through Ihe kindness ofOuptnin
Peele we are enabled to give our readers the following interesting weather
notes for October: The menu nf the
maximum for Iho month was 50.3 s,
and the mean of the minimum 43.0° j
mean temperature fur tho month 50 °.
The rain fall wus 0.09 inches; rain fell
un 10 days during the month, the
grentost fall in 24 hours being 1.94
niches, and tho least full ,00 inches.
The warmest day was the 28th, when
the thermometer stood 05* III the
shade and 73 ° in the sun; the coldest
day, and the only frost during the
month was on the 24th, the thermom-,
elor registering 32 °. The greatest
number of miles travelled by tho wind
in 24 hours was 114 and llie least
number 19 miles. Wild roses, dhnliaa
and other gardeu flowers lire still in
bloom and fresh buds are opening out
every day. Tho weather wo are enjoying ut present is very similar to the
Septomber weather of Ihe eust, nnd it
certainly ia the most delightful serumi
of the year.

"I have been selling Br. Thomas' Eclectric Oil for some years, and have no hesitation in saying that it has given better
satisfaction than any other medicine I
have ever sold. I consider it the only
patent medicine that cures more than it
is recommended to cure." Unprincipled
pcrsonB are selling imitations of Br. Thomas' Eclectric Oil.   Bo not be deceived.
On ChaiiilMi-lnln'A Mission.
London, Nov. 3.—The Hon. Joseph
Chamberlain has evidently not added
anything to his political fame, or advanced at all innis dipliimnticatatus,by
undertaking his mission to America.
Even his friends admit, to themselves
at least, that his going was a mistake,
and if he had listened to the advice
that was given'him, perhaps more
hinted at than spoken by his friends,
he would certainly never have undertaken to become an arbitrator in suoh
a delicate controversy aB the fishery
question between these two great
-nations. Tho flail 11 News -prints to-
day in full tho drastic article published
by the Toronto Globe iu reference to
Chamberlain, as well as the criticisms
on this gentleman by other Canadian
newspapers. The News, referring to
these strictures, says that it nevertheless hopes Writ Americans, despite the
follies nf .Mr. Chamberlain, will accord
bim a reception worthy of the Queen's
representative, and that be will be
treated with such courtesy as such a
representative should expect The
News hopes all the commissioner's inflaming harangue will be buried in oblivion, aud thnt his mission will bo accompanied with success.
