The Anglo-Saxon Schism. '
In an exceedingly interesting address, delivered lut apring before
the Canadian Olub in New York,
and now published, Mr.. Goldwin
Smith  treats of ther ApgloSaxon
schism   in the loparation of   the
American  oolonie* from England,
'Che ample historical knowledge of
the author, hi* profound interest in
the development of free political institutions, and his hearty tympnthy
with America, the countiy in which
he has chosen to live, exchangisg a
chair at Oxford for one at Cornell,
and a home in England for one in
Oanada, all give great value to any
expression of opinion upon such a
subject, and the expression is marked by the characteristic clearness,
crispness,   and incisiveness of his
style.   Mr. Goldwin Smith's theme
is simple.    The separation of the
colonies and the mother country was
inevitable, but the form of sepraa-
tion, the violent rupture, was unnecessary, and therefore a misfortune, and the interest* of both countries and of the world require a
hearty good understanding and accord of the two branches of the English-speaking race,    The author'*
view* upon the general character of
what he call* in an earlier lecture
upon the American colonic* "the
greatest disaster that ever befell the
English race" have not changed, but
his feeling in regard tothe relative
conduct of England and America is
somewhat modified.   Colonial taxation in the earlier lectors he holds
to, have deen "in defiance of the
first principals of English government"   In hiB maturer judgment
the right of taxation was hardly to
be questioned, however' UnWpedient
its exercise at the time may have
been.   But then as now Mr. Gold-
win Smith holds that the separation
wa* probably a gain to both countries.   It was the quarrel that was
deplorable.   Hs thinks that a little
patience; a little endurance; On-Hm
part of tho colonie* would have ond-
ed in a repeal of the objectionable
laws. But it could hardly, we think,
have caused a withdrawal of the
preamble asserting the right of taxation, and it was upon the preamble,
a* Webster said, that the Revolu
tion was fought.   Nothing is more
striking, among the many striking
facts of the time, than that Burke,
who of all great statesmen  was
most earnest in  disclaiming  all
theoretical   politics,   should  have
been the most earnest champion of
a people who were fighting upon a
statement of abstract right. Burke's
position, indeed, wu that the right
of taxation should not be even discussed io long as its exercise wu
inexpedient   But it wu inexpedient not became of iti effects, for the
amount of the tax wu no mora onerous upon the colonies than that of
tho ship-money.   It was the principle whioh wu obnoxious, the possible oppression which lay in conceding the right   The question is
purely speculative.   But in this centennial year of the Constitution it
is especially interesting.   Goldwin
Smith's view is held also by tecky,
whose whole treatment of the Revo-
lution,  although   exceedingly  un-
American, is candid, and based upon thorough research. Both authors
doubt whether ths Revolution wu
in any proper isnie a popular movement   They both point out that
there wu no thought of separation
when it began, sxcept in ths mind
of Samuel Adami and a few sympathiser*; and Lecky holds that it
would have failed exoept for the aid
of France, and France in striking
at England in America overthrew
herself.   But ths purpose of Gold-
win Smith to quicken the conviction that the interests of well ordered liberty and of free popular institutions, u against the modern forms
of hostility and peril to them, demand the sincerest harmony between the two gnat English-speaking notions, is one that will command the hearty assent of the most
intelligent and patriotic Americans.
He thinks tbat the Celtic genioua
is hot friendly to suoh invitations,
and that the present Irish movement is hostile to them   He naturally holds that American sympathy
should now incline to England rather than to Ireland.   But here, without provoking discussion, we should
be disposed to uk whether a remark
in the earlier lucture upon the Amer
lean colonies is not true: "But English statesmen, with all their greatness,  have seldom known how to
anticipate   necessity."    With the
general aim of the present address,
however—the fostering of the molt
fraternal international understand.
ing—every patriotic and generous
American will agree, and it is easy
to understand the regret of generous Englishmen in feeling with
Goldwin Smith. "But though the
wound will heal—and that it may
heal ought to be the earnest desire
of the whole English name—history
can never cancel the fatal'page
which robs England of half the
glory and half the happiness o! being the mother of a great nation."

prowcttton to-day decided to bring
the indictment before th* grand jury
in the court of queen'* bench against
Joseph Hiokson, the general manager
ol the Grand Trunk Hallway, on a
charge of manslaughter. The coroner'* jury had previously brought in a
verdict holding the railway criminally

London, Sept. i.—In the house of
commons thi* afternoon, Sir James
Ferguson, parliamentary seoretary of
the foreign office, stated that the term*
to be offered by the British fisheries
commission in the coming oonrerenoe
at Washington, had not been decided
upon. The points raised in connection with the Alaska fisheries would be
included in the matter to be duouued.
Sir Lionel Sackville We*t, the Bntiah
minister at Washington, would be the
second member ot the oo'mmiaaion.
■The third member would be Canadian.
Washington, Sept. 2.—Thl prospective oourse of the government regarding the fishery commission create*
a good deal of interest hers. Indication* point to the selection of a very
•trong commiauon bv the president
and the secretary of state, and toa
careful and frank study of ths question by the commiation. It* work will
not be binding unless confirmed by
congreu, especially as the last oongrea*
refuted to even authorise the appoint:
ment of a coransiuion.       ,
Moxtmal, Sept 2.—the a'autte,
in a long inipired article oi the Miery
oooimission, aaya: "Us ■■ GUkdha
pre** assume* that the oomdilarion I*
to determine the terms upon whioh
American fishermen shall be permitted
to enjoy our inshore fisheries and commercial privilege* in our porta, while
the United State* pre**, jumping at
the samo conclusion, criticise the consent of the Washington government
to the appointment of a joint commission according to their political leaning*. The purpose of the oommiuion
hu nothing whatever to do with the
commercial phase of tho quntion.
From the fact that the commission to
define the three-mile limit and to provide for the protection of the respective right* of the countries under the
treaty of 1818, haa been in contemplation for many montli* past and from
the fact that President Cleveland would
hardly venture to deal with the commercial ride of the lubject until instructed by the senate, and if, u we'
have no doubt it will, the report ol
the oommiaaioner* uphold* the Canadian contention, and declares that
American fiihermen cannot enter our
ports for other than the four purpose*
•perilled in the convention of 1818,
the United State* will he more inclined
■to enter upon negotiation* for reciprocity of commercial privilege* such ar
wu enjoyed under the lapsed condition* of the Washington treaty, and
it may be hoped that the scope of the
oommiuion will be ultimately enlarged so u to tecum thi* more important phaw ol the subject.

Criminal Carelessness.
Wc have-wore than onco referred
to the crimiinil character of that
sort of carelessncs which endangers
human life. Almost all the accidents from fire arms are the result
of thisi carelessness. A few days
ago our despatches mentioned that
n young married woman-hod been
shot and killed by a young man who
playfully pointed a pistol at her
under the impression that it wasn't
loaded. Recently a man was shot
dead across the. sound by a comrade
who mistook him for a bear. The
exercise of- ordinary common sense
would' have prevented the sacrifice
nf either of these lives. In this
country it is a criminal offence to
I Kiiiit a gun at any person, no matter
'.v bother it is loaded or not. Clause
I, chap. 148, of tho. consolidated
statutes of Canada declares that
"Every one who, without lawful excuse, point* at another person any
firearm or air-gun, whether loaded
or unloaded, shall, on summary conviction . before two justices of, the
peace, ker liable to a penalty not exceeding $80 and not less than $25,
or to imprisonment for any term
not exceeding 30 days," This is an
excellent clause; indeed, we should
bo glad to see it so amended as to
considerably increase the severity of
the penalty. The shooting season
has just commenced, and it is with
the hope of preventing such accidents as arise from carelessness that
we now write. It is never safe to
trifle with a gun, whether loaded or
not. If people become accustomed
to such trifling they are very apt to
do it once too ofton. A gun should
always beheld bo that if it does
happen to go oil' unexpectedly, no
one will be hit. Never drag a gun
after you by the muzzle. In going
through the bush, always keep the
muzzle of the gun pointing up or
down, whether you are alone or not
Never lire at an object until you are
perfectly sure it is not a human being. .Take no chances under any circumstances where life may be endangered.
Important Discovery.
A despatch from Ottawa announces one very important discovery as
a result of experiments undertaken
by Prof. Saunders, of the governmental experimental farm, It is
known that" summer frosts have
been one of the greatest drawbacks
in Manitoba and the northwest, and
the farmers have been very anxious
to obtain a wheat that would ripen
earlier than the Bed Fyfe, the variety now in general-use. In experimenting for this purpose a Russian
wheat was obtained from Riga, and
a report of the tests has just been
received. Mr. Johnston, of Mowbray, Manitoba, reporter "Your
sample reached me on the 29th of
April. I sowed it on the 30th of
April, it was up bn the 7th ef May,
on: tho Uth it was six inches high,
on the 21st of May 8 inches and on
the 29th 131 inches. On the 24th
of June it was shot, and on the 26th
of July it was ripe, and I ont it,
It waa put in a piece of ground containing 84 square yards, and on
threshing gave 441 lbs. of wheat as
per sample, thus averaging 43 bushels to the acre. The straw was
about three and a half feet long; it
wus stiff and stood well. I may
mention that the soil was a sandy
loam. Red Fyfe sown here on,
April 6th on the same soil was not
harvested until the 3rd of August,
from which I infer that the Russian
wheat is the very wheat required
in this country, as the risk of loss
by early frosts will be minimised by
its use." Mr. Q. H. Halse, of Brandon, reports that the sample of Russian wheat supplied to himself wa*
fairly tested, and in his opinion it
is quite three weeks ahead of the
Red Fyfe. He wants to get a large
quantity for seeding next year, and
says he is willing to pay almost any
price for it. These ore valuable
testimonies, If the people can get
a number one whoat that will come
to maturity three weeks sooner than
the Red Fyfe, and average 40 bushels to the acre, they may snap their
linger* in the face of the world and
dismiss all fear of successful competition. The Russian wheat is
described ss bright, thoroughly hard
in texture, and without any soft
grains, Since the excellence of its
qualities became known the demand
for it as a seed wheat has been enormous. It is said that only about
200 bushels will be available from
experimental lots, and the government ha* ordered 100 bushels more
from ljiga. It would be a good
idea for tome of our farmer* to
apply for small samples of thi*
grain. The trouble- in this part of
the country is not summer frosts,
but early rains which sometimes
make it difficult to save the wheat
If harvesting could be undertaken
two or three weeks earlier the danger of bad weather would disappear,
In some part* of the interior sum
mer frosts occasionally play havoc
with the Wheat, and the experiments
referred to above will, therefore,
have a direct interest for the people
of Britilh Columbia.

Where There's a Boj, There
Should Never be a Bottle.
A friend gave me lately the experience of a skillful professional man in
the following words: " My early practice," said the..doctor, "was successful, and I Soon attained an enviable
position. I married a lovely wife; two
ohildren were born unto us, and my
domestic happiness was complete. But
I was invited often to social parties
where wine was freely circulated, and
I soon became a slave to its power.
Before I wss aware of it I was a drunkard. My noble wife never foraook me,
never taunted me with a bitter word,
never ceased to pray for-my reformation. We became wretchedly poor, so,
that my family were pinched for daily
bread. One beautiful Sabbath my wife
want to church and left me lying on a
couch, sleeping off my previous night's
debauch. I waa aroused by hearing
something fall heavily on the floor. I
opened my eyes and saw my little boy
of aix years tumbling on the carpet
His elder brother said to him, ' Now
get up and, foil again. That's the way
papa does; let's play we are drunk.'
I watched the child aa he impersonated
my beastly movements iu a way that
would have done credit to an actor.
I arose and left the house, groaning in
agony and remorse. I walked off
miles into the country, thinking over
my abominable sin, and the example
I was setting before my children. I
solemlv resolved that with God's holp
I would quit my cups, and I did. No
lecture I ever heart! from Mr. Qough
moved my soul like the spectacle of
my own sweet boys -playing drunk as
papa does.' I never pass a day without thanking my God for giving me a
praying wife and bestowing grace sufficient to conquer my detestable sin of
the bottle. Madam! if you have a son
keep him, if you can, from ever touch-
inn a glass of wine."
It is hoped that this may be timely
warning to more than one father who
ia by no means a taper, and yet is putting a wine glass right before his own
ohildren. It is the ready excuse of
many a young lad for taking a glass of
champagne—" We always have it at
home." The decanter at home kindles
the appetite whioh soon seeka the
drinking saloon. The thoughtless or
reckless parent gives the fatal push
whioh sends the boy to destruction.
Long labor in the temperance reform
hu convinced me that the most effectual place to promote it ia at homo. There
ia the spot where the mischief too of ttn
is done. There i* the tpot to enact
the prohibitory law. Let it be written upon the', wall of every hoots:
"Where there't a boy, there (hould
never be a bottle."
The Effects of Alcohol on Food
Alcohol acts on vegetable and animal
matter as a preservative. Dead bodies
can be kept in alcohol au unlimited
time without decay. This illustrate*
the effect alcohol has un the food in
the stomach; on.meats—it makes them
something like leather, and on other
things of a similar character, so far as
digestion is concerned, for it is not
what we eat that the body is nourished
with but what we digest
You can put dead men in whiskey
to preserve them; but if you want life
and vitality keep beer and whiskey
out of live stomach; their effects are
only poisoning, or rather, death iu disguise. You are first cheated by an
exhilaration that is only hastening the
process of death in your own bodies
by producing a premature deterioration nf all uie vital tissues, and the
food whioh was intended for the process of digestion is changed into a
material analogous to leather, so that
perfect digestion is next to impossible,
and congestion uf all the vital organs
is inevitable.
What a Learned Doctor Bays.
Do you want a learned doctor's opinion about the use of strong drink?
Then rend what Dr. Richardson says;
the following comes from him:
'There are thousands and hundreds
of thousands who are going about,
sick people all their lives, and not
aware of it, because they are indulging
in strong drink. Remember that abstinence from strong drink gives good
sleep and pleasant dreams.' Remember that it enables persons to do more
work than those who drink; to work
longer without fatigue; and to do more
refined work than those who drink;
Remember that it is good for the
senses not to drink; that the sight,
the hearing, the touch, and all else ia
performed in a healthier manner when
there is no drink to interfere."
The True Natukb or Aicouoi.—
Hold, a mouthful of spirits—whiskey,
for instance—in your mouth for live
minntes, and you will find it bums
severely: inspect the mouth, and you
will find it inflamed. Hold it for ten
or fifteen minutes, and you will find
that various part* of the interior of
the mouth have become blistered;
then tie a handkorcbief over the eyes
and tosto, for instance, water, vinegar,
milk, or senna, and you will find that
you are incapable of distinguiihing
one from another. Thia experiment
proves to a certainty that alcohol is
not only a violent irritant, but also a
narcotic Can you believe that the
still more tender and important Internal / organs of the body can be less
injuriously affected than the mouth?—

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(IjXicxtxto.)
ON THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
the CoumiiuN Newspaper and
Printing Concern waa purchased by n
joint stock company composed of citizens
of New Westminster, to be known as the
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern lias boon for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Viotoria and Vancouver. Tlie object of
tho now company la to continue tho publication of th* British Columbian news-
p*per anil carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whose individual interest it will bo
to promote the development, especially
of tho Mainland. Thore will Ire no
slackening of the energy hitherto dis-
played la the management of the establishment, and it* patron* may rely upon
receiving full value for tlielr money.
The CotCMBian will continue to beam-
tirely Independent in both Dominion and
provincial politic*, and will devote itself
to th* advancement of snch schemes as
may be considered in the publio interest.
Tha concern I* now entirely separate from
any other business, the book and
atationwy establishment in this eity
having been taken over by Mr. T. B.
Peanon, who will continue to carry it on
In hi* own name and for his own benefit.
It I* desirable that a dally newspaper
•hould be maintained in this city, and
til* new company ask* for publlo patronage on the ground that it la engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote the
publlo welfare, It asks that* the Colombian be judged on It* own merit* and
supported only so long a* lta policy Is
•nconslstt with its professions. In con-
Mquenoe of thl* business change all ae.
const* du* the concern must bo settled
without delay so that th* book* of the
former oompany may be adjuited and
closed. Address all communications and

Raw Westminster, Ju. 38,1187. Mary nud Her I.nml>.
This is tbe title of ono of: the most
familiar poems in the English language,
though but few people know its history.
Most of oar young renders Will brs surprised lo hear that the weli-knowii nursery .song of "Mary had a Little Lumb" is
11 true story, and wat "Mary" is still living.   Snys un exchange:
About seventy years ago sho was a little girl, the daughter of a farmer in Worcester County, Massachusetts. She was
very fond of going with her father to llie
fields to see the sheep, and one day thoy
found a baby lamb which was thought to
be dead.
Kind-hearted little Mary,, however,
lified it up in her arms, and as it seemed
to breathe she carried it home, made it a
warm bed near the stove, and nursed it
tenderly. Great'was her delight when,
after weeks of careful feeding and watching, her little patient began to grow well
and strong, and soon after it was able to
run nbout. It knew its young mistress
perfectly, always came at her call, and
was happy only when at her side.
One day it followod her to the village
school, and not knowing what else to do
with it, si ,r put it under her desk and
covered it with her shawl.
There it stayed until Mary was called
up to the teacher's desk to say her lesson, and then the lamb walked quietly
after her, and tho other children burst
out laughing. So the teacher had to shut
the little girl's pet in the woodshed until school was out. Soon after tins, a
young student named Jolm Rollstono
wrote a little poem about Mary and her
lamb nnd presented it to her.. The lamb
grew to be a sheep, and lived many
years; and when at last It died Mary
grieved so much for it that her mother
took somo of its wool, which was "ns
white as snow," and knit a pair of stockings for her to wear in remembranco of
her darling.
Some years after the lamb's death lira.
Sarah Hall a celebrated woman who
wrote books, composed some verses about
Mary's lamb and added them to those
written by John Eollstone, making the
complete poem as wo know it. Mary
took such good care of the stflckings
made of her lamb's fleece Hint when she
wns a grown-up woman sho gavo ono of
thorn to a church-fair in Boston.
As soon ns it became known that tlie
stocking was mado from the fleece of
"Mary's littlo lamb" evory oiie wanted a
piece of it; so the stocking was raveled
out, and the yarn cut into small pieces.
Each pieco was tied to a card, on which
'Mary' wrote her full name; and these
cards sold so well that they brought the
large sum of ono hundred and forty dollars to the Old South Church.
Tbe Baby and Sapphire.
A fine stone of four carats' weight is
worth from $2,000 to $2,500; but above
this weight rubies nre very rare, and
would command fancy prices. Tavernier
lias given a drawing of ono belonging tb
(he Shah of Persia, which weighed one
hundred aud seventy-five carats; and the
Kings of Burmali were said to possess one
of the sine of a pigeon's egg. The largest
ever seen in Europe is that one whicli
Gtistnvns III. of Sweden presented to tlio'
Ouarinu upon his visit to Russia in 1777.
Tlie ruby lias been imitated in paste, and
garnets backed by a ruby foil are often
met with. Crimson spinous culled spinel
ruby, und rose-isd or pink spinel, balas
ruby. This last namo is said to be derived from Balastan, the ancient namo of
Beloocliistan. Although many may bo
deceived hy tho spinel, the ruby may be
readily distinguished by its superior
hardness, its spociflc gravity, anil its
i ryslrillizrition, which is hexagonal, tho
spinel In-lugoctahedral. Historical stones
often turn out when examined to be unworthy of their fame; tints the famous
ruby said to havo been given to Edward
tlie liluuk Prince by Son Pedro of Cnstilo
after the battle of Naiaia, A'.'D. 1307,
worn in bis helmet by Henry V. at Agin-
conrt, and now placed in the Imperial
State Crown of England, is a spinel. The
monster ruby ot Charles the Bold, set in
the middle of a golden roso for a pendant,
which was captured by tho Bernese after
his rout at Granson, was found to bo false
by Jacob Fugger after he had purchased
it. The ruby was supposed to bo an
amulet against poison, plague, sadness,
evil thoughts, and wicked spirits; and,
mast wonderful of all, it warned its woaror
of evil by becoming black or obscure.
"•       OarPlaanee*.    ,'.—.,.
The fiscal year closed on the 30th of
June. Tho receipts from all sources were
S.'!71,380,8B4, which is more than a million
u day, and, excluding Sundays and holidays, is more than $1,200,000 per day.
There was in round numbers an iucrease
iu the receipts over tbe fiscal year closing
Juno 30, 1886, -of $5,000,000, and of this
$25,000,000 came from customs duties
alone. During the year the national debt
was reduced $109,707,610.38. And this,
in face of larger expenditures than in
previous years, and in face, also, of recent
modifications in both tho custom* and internal revenue laws, aupposed to be in
the line of decreased receipts. But, as a
matter of fact, both branches of taxation
nre yielding the Government larger
revenues. The excess of revenue over
expenditures amounted to $103,000,000.
This is a showing no other nation in the
world can make, and it is ono of which
we may justly be proud. But still our
commerce is crippled, and our burdensome tariff remnins unadjusted and iinro-
fiirmeil. Whatever our prosperity mny
lie nil this cannot go on forever. The
people demand relief from excessive burdens, nnd it is not easy to see, with a
ponding Presidential election, how either
party can any longer stand in the way of
supplying needed reform.
The Burial of Mrs. Chin Snn.
The sight of a Chinese woman In
America is a rare thing, because thero
aro very few of them. One-fourth of the
ontire Chinese female population of New
York died the other day, when Mm, Chin
Sun, a Chinese pedfer's wile, passed
away. She was burled in tho cemetery
of the Evergreens, and the rites wore curious enough for this country, though the
common thing in China.
A few of the dead woman's friends
gathered around the plain wooden cofliii
that stood in the apartments occupied by
Chin mid his wife, and with many strange
luutterings a quantity of rice sulllcioiit to
last tlio spirit of the dead while travelling
through purgatory, a pair of beaded-slip-
per* to walk in, and u change or two of
garments were put into the coffin along
side the body. To sweeten the rice a
handful of caramels were also added to
the olferings. Tbo coffin IM was then
put on uinf the mourners, withdrew to
thoir homes.
After tlio coffin had boon put Into the
bourse, a Chinaman, carrying a quantity
of rice-paper, mounted the box besldo
the driver, and when the procession of
carriages got started, began tearing the
iiaper into strijis. This was done to
bother and detain Satan, who is supposed
to pursue bodies to carry them bit. At
intervals of a few rods tho papor strips
woro sunt flying to tho street, and Satan
was supposed to bo seriously delayed
by stopping to examine them. At tho
grave on Celestial Hill, in a lonely place

Another "Outraok."—TheiUoiiW
of Thursday hu the following: "The
steamship Abyssinia arrived off the
tho outer wharf yesterday morning,
and after blowing a few whistles passed
up to Vancouver with McKinnon, tho
lighbouie keeper, in oharge. It teoins
that Pilot McAllister was in the telegraph office at 8 o'clock and had just
received a dispatch from Capt. Webber, telling him to order the captain of
the steamship to call at the outer
wharf and land the passengers and
mail*. Hearing the whittle McAllister
•ay* ho secured a vehicle and wont out
to the point. Pilot Urouhart was out
in hi* boat a* was Pilot Thompson, und
when the former wu within one hundred yard* of the vessel ehe steamed
full ahead. He signalled, but the tee-
■el proceeded ou her way. It wu only
then that he lwrfttd that McKinnon
had boarded her. The lighthouse
keeper is not a credited Burrard Inlet
S'lot, and committed a breach of the
w in acting ,ai he did. The secretary of the Burrard Inlet pilot board
wu telegraphed to take proceedings
against him immediately on his arrival,
and Capt. Urquhart goes up this morning to be presont. Why he acted as
he ha* done i* inexplicable. Ho had
been informed thtt the Abysinnia was
ordered to call here, and it could only
be "purecustedness" tbat induced him
to take suoh a step and prevent the
steamer calling. It will probably cost
him not only the loss of-his expected
pilotage duu, but alto the payment of
a heavy penalty, and, as the matter of
hi* desertion of hiB post hu been already represented to the department
of marine at Ottawa, it will alto likely
cost him his position u lighthouse
keeper. Great indignation is felt
among the pilots, and also by citizens
who are aware of the fact* of the cue."
Capt. McKinnon hu aince made a
statement to the effect that the •team-
ship waited over two hours and no
pilot appeared. 	
Messrs, Mitchell k Piatt, druggists,
London, Ont., write Dec, 1881: "We
"have sold Dr. Thomas' Eolectrio Oil since
its first Introduction, and we can safely
say, no medicine ou our shelves hu had
a larger sale, or gives better satisfaction.
We always feel safe in recommending it
to our customers."
Pellee lourl.
In the polico court this morning
Harry Lethbridge wu charged before
Capt. Pittendrigh with uaing grossly
indecent language towards a lady during the time of the Scotch game*.
Cant. Pittendrigh inflicted a line of
140 and costs (5.50), or 5 months at
hard labor. The magistrate alto told
Lethbridge that if he ever came before
him again on such a charge he would
get 6 months in the chaing-gang, without the option of a fine. The only
other case before the court was a eommon drunk, who was fined $5 and
cost*.

the Crown and the Federal Executivo
in Canada. On the other hand tho
Olmcrirer, Manchester fftiai-dtim, Edinburgh Scotoiioii, Glasgow Herald, Pall
Mali Giraffe and other leadings papers
point out that whilst, technically speaking, Manitnbaiu aro defying tho Federal Executive and nre, therefore, in
the wrong, it is none the less true that
tho Federal Executive is injuring them
by the misuse of the veto." It is the
general opinion here that Munitobn.na
will auceeeil in oarrying their point,
and some astonishment is expressed
that Sir John Macdonald should havo
taken a course which has already discredited the Federal authority nnd
which will end even moro seriously.
In tho House of Commons lobby nearly all the members who understand
the question aro of the opinion that
the Ottawa authorities were, to say
tho least, badly advised iu disallowing
Manitoba railroad oliarten after promising to abandon the dlsallowanco
polioy.
Mr. Henry Marshall, Reeve of Dunn,
writes: "Some time ago I got n bottle of
Northrop A Lyman's Vegetable Discovery from Mr. Harrison, and I consider it
the very best medicine extant for Dyspepsia," Thia, medicine is making marvellous cure* in Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia, etc.) in purifying the blood and
restoring manhood to full vigor.
CORRESPONDENCE.
Host or Railways.
Editor CoumatoN,—The J*r'»ie« ol
August 31st reproduces from Age of Steel
statistics showing the comparative cost
per mile of railroads, which places the
United Kingdom at the head at $212,000
per mile, and editorially calls special attention to the difference as between the
United States at $55,000; and tho utterance drawn is that most of the balance is
used up in corrupting the members of tho
English house of commons. The Time*
takes notice of the difference between tlio
solidity and finish of English railroads as
compared with those of America, but as
an offset says that labor is cheaper and
that the comparative cost should be about
equal. One, and the principal, point in
the cost of an English road seems to have
been overlooked by the Time*, that is the
cost of right of way through a thickly
Kpulated country where not only the
id is valuable, but closely packed
buildings have to be purchased and demolished at immense cost before the right
of way is cleared, and then every crossing
has to bo (by law) constructed abovo or
below the railway at'tlrc cost of tile company constructing, and where cut atone
or hard brick viaduct* extend several
miles at a stretch and with more tunnelling on one road of four hundred miles
than on the whole of the Canadian
Pacific railway; with stations any one
of them costing as muoh as Winnipeg
depot. It would be well for the Time*
to think a little before comparing this
with the cost of roads' on this continent
passing through land littcrally belonging
to nobody, and if it does (go ahead all
the same), roads subsidised with money
and vast tracts of tho best lands and
then bonused by communities for the
benefit of having the line pats near their
settlements. To carry weight to its idea
of corruption tlie|TI)«f* reproduces the
statement that in ten yun "2 per cent,
of th* total addition to capital expenditure hod been spent over parliamentary
battles." This, to my mind, is easily accounted for, from tho fact, that where
such a network of railways exist it is incumbent upon the management of a road
to keep competitors out, if possible, and
barristers (not members) aro employed,
at high figures to plead before tlie parliamentary committeo tho merits or demerit* of a bill for a new line. Another
cause of th* increased coM tlie Timet
says is the extravagance and looseness of
the management of British railways.
The best answer that can be given to
this is the fact that only one English
road is in the hands of receivers, while
it is a common occurrence on this contir*
ent, I do not think that the .1;/.: of
Steel wonld attempt to have us draw the
last inference of the Times' article that
of corruption of the British house of
commons, as it is a well known fact that
members do not enter that assembly
"professionally," and it will be a sorry
day for the empire should it over become neoessary'for them to do so. Yours
truly, .W. I. Cookm.ky.
