Mr. Gladstone's Report.
Mr. Uladstouo retorts upon tho Tories and Unionists thut it'is they who
are laboriug, however hunestly and
unconsciously, to disunite tlie British peoplo. He turns baok the cry
of separatism which has been the
chief reproach to his position, and
argues that it is not the outstretched; friendly hand, but tho clenched
fist raised for a blow, which obntructs
good understanding. This is not unreasonable, and the lute by-elections
in England seem to show that it is
a view which is acceptable to the
English people. The Tory presentation of the cose assumes that the
Irish question is solely a question
of enforcement of law. We only
ask, they soy, that peoplo shall keep
their contracts und not steel, and
that they shall not maltreat and
murder tho officers of the law. If
the Irish people may disregard with
impunity the fundamental conditions of orderly civilized society, the
people of Sussex and Yorkshire may
properly do the same, ana we shall
have anarchy. Granting that the
Irish who hold this view are the
majority, they nre merely the majority of a lawless mob, and we are
honorably bound not to deliver the
defenceless minority to their tender
mercies. But tho reply of Mr. Glad
stone is that this is not tho situation. The Irish land laws aro the
admisson that the situation is abnormal, and that the question is ono
of general inability, not of mere refusal to pay stipulated rents. This
situation is complicated with traditions uud feelings which are vital
moral elements not to be safely disregarded, and in this position to say
simply that lawful, debts must be
paid, and that defaulting debtors
must take the consequences of default, is neither statesmanship nor
common sense. Those who persist
in such a polioy are sowing hate
and destroying the possibility of
freindly accord. This is the general
plea of Mr. Gladstone, and it is this
which commands the general approval of public opinion in the United
States. It is not a feeling which
naturally takes form in the gift of a
memorial. But the memorial none
the less symbolizes a general feeleng.

Type or American Bcnuij.
When the people of the United
States shall be deprived of the constant inSux of foreign blood from
Europe, they will finally develop into a fixed and regular American type.
This peculiarity will have as its dis
tinguishing characteristics slender-
ness of form, disposition to great
muscular activity, extreme nervous
sensitiveness, remarkable quickness
of intellectual apprehension and n
general alertness. These are to a
great extent the characteristics of
the American Indians, and when
the white raco shall become thoroughly localized in North America it will
conform to the type of the Indians
in their chief physical qualities.
That the whites who have been in
America for a few generations have
already begun to assume the Indian
type of bodily configuration has repeatedly been recognized and declared by competent physiologists
and anatomists. The artists, who
are ever alive to the peculiarities of
form, have not failed to notice that
a certain slendcrness of figure has
become so far characteristic of the
Americans that it is never omitted
in any pictorial representations, and
tho typical Yankee of the caricaturist, as well as the typical Southerner, is always shown as a tall slender, muscular, nervous personage
It may not be out of place to add to
the testimony of the physilogist and
tho artist on these points that of the
commercial man, which is fully corroborative of their observations. An
importer of French and German
gloves said to the writer that such
articles intended for the American
trade had to be manufactured expressly because the hands of the
Americans are louger in proportion
to breadth than those of the typical
French and German people, and the
fingers as a rule are longer and more
slender. Enough has been said to
show that there will one day be a
characteristic type of form far the
American people, and that there
will in ooncequenco be a type of
American beauty. Already the
American women are being recognised as the most beautiful in the
world.   The uncrowned queens and

CALUMET MINE ON FIEB.
Calumet, Mich., August 4.—The
Calumet and Hecla mine is on fire at
the sixteenth Had. Immense volumes
volumes of smoke are issuing from No.
3 shaft in tho Hecla branch of the
mine. Miners have gone down to
shut off the lire from the Black Hills
portion of the mine.   No lives lost.
DYNAMITE MOONEV'S OUTFIT.
New York, Aug. 4.—The effects of
Mooney, the dynamite tiend, were
found in a zinc covered,"iron-bound
trunk and two valises, all carefully
packed as though tlie man had made
preparations for a hasty departure.
In the trunk wore found two pieces of
gas pipe, a package uf powder, sulphur,
phoBphoruus, crystals of chloride of
potassium, several glass tubes, and
some blasting caps for Atlas powder.
Besides clothes and note books there
were pictures of Dr. McGlynn and a
few personal letters, several yard, of
fuso and a box of draughtman'a instruments completed the list* llie pipes
were of heavy brass, of unequal
lengths, and at about one-third of the
distance from one end of each was a
cock which the police did not attempt-
to turn today. The shank of the
cock was of a soft metal that could be
eaten away by acid placed in the smaller end of the chamber, and thus explode Ihe contents of the larger. Jas.
Lynn, who made the examination, remarked: " Mooney was ready to blow
up a fleet." Mocney was arraigned in
court to tiny and took occasion to say
that he is not an ex-convict. He
showed his chemicals and infernal
machines, and accounted for the corrosion discovered iu the bath-rooms of
the house whore he lodged by saying
it hud been produced by acids that he
had used iu his labratory. Mooney
said bo wus an inventor, that theso
were part of his experiment matorials
that he is now engaged on a torpedo
boat.
THE CABLE WAR AT AN END.
New York, Aug. 4.-- A reporter of
the evening /W called .upon a gentleman who is deeply interested in the
Commercial Co., in order to ascertain
the facts in the case. The gentleman
said: "I am not in direct communication with Mnckay, but from what 1
have been able to learn thero i. no
doubt iu my mind but the lung war is
over. I do nut think the Commercial
will join any pool and accept a percentage of the business carried on between this and other countries, but
there is no doubt of a rate per word
being decided on whicli every body
concerned will be satisfied. 1 think
that a satisfactory agreement will bo
be made by which the rates will be
fixed at a reasonable figure and each
oompany will attend to its own business, I do not think you will ever
again see the existence of a pool which
will regulate tho amount of business
each company in it is to have and that
the day of a monopoly in cable business is over. You will nevor see again
all the companies in cablo business under ono management. The settlement
will be one simply fixing a uniform
rate aud eaoh company will do all the
business it can."

Attractions #f Ibe Coast.
The hot wave hat been remarkably severe in the eastern states
and Canada. In two days 100 people wen struck down by excessive
heat in Chicago, and about 30 others
were lent to the hospital in a precarious condition. In New York
100 persons were prostrated in a
tingle day. It ia a fact worthy of
being recorded that thii coast is particularly free from cases of this
kind. We have never heard of a
genuine cue of sunstroke in British
Columbia, and we believe suoh a
thing hardly ever (if ever) ocoura
on any part of the coast north of
Mexico. This is one of the very
many advantages which people on
the Pacific coast enjoy. We havo
neither the extreme cold in winter
nor the distressing heat of summer.
There is something in the atmosphere of the coast which protects
the people from the overpowering
rays of the sun so fatal elsowhere.
We have before referred to the well-
established fact that there has never
been a case of hydrophobia known
on the coast, and it may be that
the atmospheric conditions whioh
protect dogs from this dreadful disease are the same that shield human
beings from sunstroke. The ad van
tages of this coast as a plaoe of
residence are every year becoming
more widely known and appreciated.
During the present season there has
been an enormous ruth of tourists
and others to Southern California,
and as a consequence there has been
a very remarkable boom in real
estate. As an example of the development in that region it may be
mentioned that the assessed value
of property in the eity of Los Angeles bat increased since last year
from $14,275,242 to $38,681,276,
and in Lot Angeles county from
$16,697,688 to $44,700,574, showing an increase for the city and
county of $92,208,920 in one year.
The filling up of this region will
help to fill up the districts lying
further north. Hundreds of people
will find their way from California
to British Columbia when they
learn that we possess a climate almost, if not altogether, equal to
that of any other part of the coast
The indications are that before many
years the Pacific coast will have a
population at dense as that of the
Atlantic, tor not only is our climate
infinitely superior, but onr resources
are abundant and rich in a remarkable degree.
Escape of McGsrlgle.
The successful escape of McGarigle from Chicago and his safe arrival in Canada adds one more to the
long list ef American boodlers who
have found shelter under our flag.
Some American newspapers are, as
usual, beginning to rail against tbe
Canadian authorities because their
country receives and refuses to surrender criminals of this sort. But
if these people will let their reason
exercise itself for a moment, they
will have to admit that the responsibility for this disgraceful state of
things rests upon their own nation
and not on us. For a long time
Canada has been most anxious to
have the extradition treaty so enlarged that it would inoludesuch
offenses as that for which McGarigle
has had to flee, but negotiations
looking to this end have been
blocked by the authorities of the
United States. Canada does not
want the boodlers of the republic,
and would be only too glad if tbe
whole pack of them could be handed
over indiscriminately to the punishment they deserve; but while the
United States declines to reciprocate they must be content to see
the present most unsatisfactory condition ot things remain. It is certainly very disgraceful, but it is a
situation created entirely by themselves. We really do not see wby
all serious crimes should not be extraditable. The lawt and customs
and traditions of the people of the
United States and Canada are substantially the same. They are one
people, separated by accident into
two nations with a common origin
and a common purpose. Why
should a thief or an embezzler who
has robbed the people on one side of
the line lose his criminal character
in the eyes of the law as soon as he
gets tercet the boundary! It may
be important to guard against the
surrender ot persons accused of political offences, bnt surely that point
could be covered while provision
was made for giving up all who had
committed offences against the criminal laws common to tbe two countries. Under the present system
Canada is becoming a dumping
ground tor American criminals, and
the United States affords an asylum
for Caaadian scoundrels. The towns
and dties along the boundary, on
both aide* ot the line, aro full of
escaped outlaws. We hope the
McGarigle incident, which teems to
have oaaaed a gnat deal ot agitation
In the mbtie mind, will not be without effect in bringing about an improved extradition treaty between
the two leaatriti which will put an
end to saeh scandals.

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
0aX3—X~O.)
ON THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1M7,
the CoLBMirlAN Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased by a
Joint stock oompany composed of citizens
of New Westminster, to bo known as tho
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited," The concern has been for
nearly a year ownoil anil controlled by
tho British Colnmbla Stationery and
Printing Company, ol New Westminster,
Viotoria and Vanoonver. The object of
the new oompany ia to continue tho publication of the British Columbian news*
papor and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whoso individual Interest It will bo
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland. There will be no
slackening of the energy hitherto displayed in tho management of the estab-
lishment, and Its patrons may rely upon
receiving fall value for their money.
The Colombian will continue to bo entirely Independent In both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote lUelf
to the advancement of anch schemes as
may be considered In the publio Interest.
The concern Is now entirely separate from
any other business, the book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. B.
Pearson, who will oontinue to carry it on
in hla own name and for his own benefit.
It !• de.lr.blo that a dally newspaper
ahould be maintained in this city, and
the new oompany asks for pnblio patronage on Uw ground that it is engaged In
an entcrprUe calculated to promote the
publlo wollare. It ailu that the Col-
vmutu he judged on Its own merits and
supported only ao long aa its policy la
enconslstt with lu professions. In consequence of thb businesi change all accounts dm the conoern must be settled
without delay so that th* boohs of the
former oompany may bo adjusted and
olossd. Address all communications and
remittances to

Portable Telephone.
Brussels, July 25.—Two Bel
gians, Col Renard and Mr. Not
homb, the latter professor of
telegraphy in a technical college,
have just made known there a
wonderful discovery—namely, a
portable telephone, wherewith
telephoning is made easy on
open ground from anywhere to
anywhere by means of a copper
wire worked by a small but astonishingly powerful generator
of electricity, In warfare soldiers
could carry the wire, and would
be able to communicate with
others by simply throwing the
wire on the soil and rolling it
around a sword fixed in the
ground to form the circuit and
then speaking through a small
box, The said telephone also
acts as a telegraph, and can be
used as a substitute wherever
telegraph wires are cut. Experiments made between Brusssls
and Antwerp show the transmission to be so perfect that sound
can be heard at several yards
from the receiver. The portable
telephone already exists in Germany, but it is so expensive and
so constantly gets out of order
as to be impracticable.
International Arbitration.
The International Arbitration
Association, which held another
meeting in London last week,
does not make much progress.
It seems but the plainest dictate
of common sense that when nations disagree they should, if
they cannot come to understanding themselves, submit the matters in question to a tribuual in
which the disputants can have
confidence. That tribunal may:
be an International Board of
Arbitrators, always existing and
ready to act, or a special Board
appointed in each case. AH admit that it would be well to put
an end to the horrors of war for
ever and that it would be well to
put an end to those continual
preparations for war which impoverish so many countries and
make waste the lives of so many
millions who, trained to war, become in many respects unfit for
a life of peace. In many cases
great wars in which much blood
is shed and much money spent,
lead to no other result than the
exhaustion of those who are engaged, in them, and it has not
seldom happened that in the
treaty of peace made at the close
of a protracted war the original
cause of dispute is entirely lost
sight of. The real^ difficulty in
the way of International Arbitration is that nations going to
war usually have some object in
view which arbitration would
not place within their reach.
Bismarck could not by arbitration have annexed Hanover and
Alsace-Lorraine to Prussia or
created the present German Empire. Napoleon III. could not
by arbitration have wrested its
Italian possessions from Austria
or annexed Nice and Savoy to
France. Russia could not by
arbitration have become mistress of Central Asia, nor could
she by that means get Afghanistan, Bokhara or Northern Persia.
Arbitration would not have created the little kingdoms of Rou-
mania, Servia or Bulgaria. And
those nations which have no desire to extend their territories or
extend their influence have no
reliance upon arbitration, because they know that the more
ambitious could not be bound
by any decision that did not
correspond with their purposes.
When any cause of dispute arises
between nations, neither of which
desires to go war with the other,
that dispute, if it cannot be settled by the usual diplomatic
means, may be settled by arbitration, as was the dispute about
the island of San Juan, in which
the King of Prussia arbitrated,
and that about the Alabama
claims, which were settled by an
International Court, and that
about the Caroline Islands,
which Prussia and Spain referred
to the Pope. But who could expect that any arbitration would
remove the cause of possible
trouble between France and Germany or between Russia and
Great Britain.
Some think that an Anglo-
American Arbitration Association at least may be formed.
Even this will be found difficult.
There is at present no cause of
misunderstanding or of possible
trouble between the two countries but the fishery question,
and that could not be settled by
arbitration, because in that as it
now stands there is nothing to
arbitrate about. We could not
consent to submit to arbitration
any question as to our exclusive
right to the fisheries within the
three mile limit or as to our
right to enforce the terms of the
Treaty of 1812. Questions may
hereafter arise which it would be
well to settle by arbitration, but
it is difficult even to imagine
what such questions could be.
Those who desire to establish
an international system as a
means of preventing war mean
well, but there is little probability
of their doing any good.—Globe.
Have your tried Holloway's Corn Cure?
It haa no equal for removing these
troublesome excresoenBes, as many have
testified who have tried it.

always prevails in India. Tho loss of
100,000 lives in Spain two years ago
shocked tho world, but if in any year
thero should be no greater mortality
in India from the same cause the country would be very fortunate. It will
readily be seen that the official record
of deaths in such a country as India
cannot be complete, but this record
shows that in 1886 cholera caused the
death of 386,000 persons. If all the
cases had been recorded tho reported
number would probably have oxceodod
600,000.

That CuaUiENok.—On Wednesday
morning the Vancouver News claimed
to have a larger circulation iu this'
city than the combined circulation of
the two local newspapers, aud intimated that the proof of this extraordinary claim was at hand. Iu order to
brine out the proof we.ofiered that if
the Ntws would put up 9100 we should
cover it, his deposit to be forfeited to
the hospital in case he failed to support his claim. This morning the
News professes its willingness to put up
when the Columbian has done so, and
asks us to arrange a proper agreement
—but he wants to control the deposit
himself 1 We are of opinion that our
original proposal was as fair as anything could bo, and if our cotemporary wishes to ascertain the truth he
had better conform to the conditions
of it and put up his deposit—otherwise we shall foe) justified in the belief that he has no intention of producing the proof of which he professed to be iu possession. Our co-
temporary lias no ground for apprehension. If wc should fail tn cover
his deposit, the circumstance would be
beyond measure damaging to us. We
cannot consent to the new conditions
which he seeks to introduce, but repeat
the simple challenge made on Wednesday, which every one will admit to be
perfectly fair aud straight. The only
condition in the whole business is that
our cotemporary prove his statement
to the satisfaction of any committee
of three independent and trustworthy
persons in the city—and he may name
the committee himself. Our cotemporary seeks to draw across the scent
a red herring in the shape of u homily
on betting. Now, if the new condition proposed by him were admitted,
namely, that ho shall control the forfeit, there might be an element of
betting. But our proposal involved
no such principle. It had no element
of uncertainty or chance about it. It
simply proposed that the News pro*
duce its proof or contribute $100 to
the hospital. There was in it no prospect of financial gain to him or us.
We knew well enough that hia claim
was utterly impossible of proof, and
we knew also that he would not put
up his money. To begin the interjection of new conditions will only complicate matters. If our proposal was
not in every respect fair, let him point
out its unfairness: if it is fair let him
accept it and make his deposit!
P. M. MarkeU, West Jeddore, N. S.,
writes: "I wish to inform you of the
wonderful qualities of Dr. Thomas'Eclectric Oil. I had a horse so lame that he
could scarcely walk; the trouble was iu

Caledonian celebration.
At tlie lost meetim? of the Caledonian Society it was decided to hold
a general celebration on September 1st
in this city. Arrangements are being
made with the railroad and steamboat
lines to issue reduced rates to the city
on that day. Among the special attractions on the programme; is a
firemen's race between the Hyack's
and Vancouver company for a prize of
950. This will enable tho Hyaeks to
retrieve the honors they lost on July

Bash Fires.
Mr. McDonald, tho timber agent,
informs us that exclusive forest fires
are raging in the vicinity of Elgin and
Mud Bay in the timber limits of the
Royal City Mills. The fire originated
from some of the logging cmiij at, and is
spreading with lightning rapidity.
McDougalT. logging camp has been
burned out, the men being obliged to
tick up their traps and get out in a
urry. The fire is spreading South
towards the boundary, and destroying
much valuable timber: It is thought
all the logging camps will be obliged
to vacate their camping grounds.

Presented to tbe Queen.
To-day we received a letter from
the Rt Rev. Bishop of New Westminster, dated London, July 18th, in
which he says: "When 1 received the
copy ot the Daily Columbian containing a report of the observance of
the jubilee in the royal city, it occurred to me to send it to the queen that
her majesty might learn that distance
does not tend to diminish loyalty. I
have muoh pleasure in enclosing the
acknowledgment just received from
Gen. Sir Henry P. Ponsonby." The
acknowledgment referred to by the
bishop ia dated at Windsor Castle,
July 10th, and reads aa follows:
Mr Dub Loan Bishop. — I hav.
had much pleasure in giving your letter
and the enclosed copy of the Daily
British Olvhbmn to the Queen.—
Yours truly,     Hnrgy F. Ponsonby.

Hon. Mr. While's Visit.
Last evening Hon. Thomas While,
minister of the interior, accompanied
by his private socretary, arrived in ihis
oity by way of Vancouver. This
morning his timo was occupied at the
Dominion land office listening to persons who had land or other grievances
to adjust, recoiving deputations, conferring with Mr. Chisholm, the district representative, and obtaining information respecting the administration of the affairs nf his department
in this province. It was expected tbat
there would be ono or moro deputations of settlers here to present a
statement of the land grievances, but
only two or threo persons turned up.
Thoy had an interview with the minister, who received all with the utmost
courtesy and listened attentively to
what they had to say. We understand that the minister approved of
the liberal regulations now obtaining
with respect to timber on agricultural
lands, it having been the practice not
to interfere when trees are cut in the
regular process of clearing. It was decided that the claim for free homsteads
could not bo allowed. All squatters
must pay 11 an acre. With respect to
the Sumas lands, the minister will discuss that with the provincial! authorities at Victoria, and it 'is to bo hoped
some understanding as to the ownership of these lands may be reached.
At 11 o'clock a deputation from the
Westminster board of trade waited upon Mr. White, and laid before him a
number of matters affecting the public
interest. Among other things discussed were the Southern Railway, improvement of the aandheads, placing of
the buoys at the river mouth, improvement of the mail service between this
oity and Victoria, the Mud Bay Canal,
tho continuous employment of the
■nag boat, prevention of the destruction of timber by fire, and the land and
timber regulations. The hon. minister had memoranda made of all these
matters, and promised to lay them before the cabinet at Ottawa. He expressed his sense of the reasonableness
of most of the requests made, and tho
deputation withrow well satisfied with
their interview.
Communication*.
A Protest.
Editok Columbian,—You will please
excuse me for troubling you again so
soon on city matters. I had not intended to resume tho subjeot yet
awhile, but for the fact that I have
beon informed by one that is in a po-
sitiou to know, that cerlain parties interested are trying to have Lytton
square brought under the hammer; and
to successfully carry out the schemo
that I have long cherished with a view
to make Westminster what nature has
mado it capable of becoming, I would
take the earliest opportunity of protesting against Lytton square being
aoid. It is the dividing Hue between
upper and lower town, and is the only
tif.ee where an easy grade can be made
between the upper part of the city and
th. water frontage; and for the citizens
of this place to look on with such indifference whilst a few selfish vandal.
frasp everything that ought to be kopt
or the use of the general public would
of course be ill keeping with the past.
1 often think of the oriminal, sordid
indifference that allowed the old
government house and grounds (with
that delightful glen and with its never
failing stream of water) to be taken into a convict establishment.
Jamb. Kennedy.
A lady from Syraouse writes: "For
about seven years before taking North*
rop k Lyman s Vegetable Discovery and
Dyspeptic Cure, I suffered from complaint very prevalent with our sex. I
was unable to walk any distance or
stand on my feet tor more than a few
minutes at a time without feeling ex-
hausted, but now I am thankful to say,
I can walk two miles without feeling the
least Inconvenience." For Female Complaints It has no equal.

Points on Pouotry. — A poultry
journal says: "Mo better place can be
found for a poultry yard than an orchard. The fowls will search very
closely for insect, whioh, were they
not dostroyed, would prove un injury
to the fruit trees; the droppings which
they will deposit around the roots of
the trees will invigorate them so they
will bear more and better fruit; and it
is impossible for the fowls to injure
the trees in the slightest degree. The
fowls require some kind of shade, and
no bettor can be found for them than
that of the orchard. Then, too, they
will dorive a benefit from the faulty
fruit which readies a premature ripeness or fall from whatever cause, and
tho little fruit-destroyers which abound
so abundantly will quite effectually aid
in filling tho egg basket, and help to
impart strength and vigor to the chicks
hatchod from suoh eggs. We are of the
opinion that if farmers and fanciers
who have orchards would investigate
this matter more thoroughly, they
would find that, to uso an old expression, thoy could "kill two birds with
ono stono."

In an Impartial and independent manner, the passim; events of Canadian political and social life. Its Cartoons spenk
mora definitely and more pleasingly t linn

 .voiiTed atari     	
of Grip shows how well this fact In appreciated—Its Cartoons on tho passing political events of the eountry being even
more eagerly sought after than the chaste
and humorous letter-press of the paper,—
though tbe latter is equal to thai o? any
atmllaMpubllcatlon on the continent,
The publishers of Grip are making ex
tensive Improvements lor 1888. The old
cover li to be discarded, nnd the Journal
Will hereafter comprise 18 pages, and be
printed on heavy toned and calendered
papor,—every number being so artistically
executed aa to compare favorably with
the belt papers on the continent. The
advts. will be compressed and more systematically arranged; while similar Improvements will bo made as to the letterpress, A new and handsome design will
adorn the title page; while tlm Cartoons
will certainly not suffer from extensive
Improvements In tbe artistic department.
The price of Grip will hereafter be 12 a
year, whioh Is 'lower than that of any
^per of Its kind In America,—most of
sm selling for 15. Single numbers of
Grip Will be 10 cents.
Twice a year, at Midsummer nnd Obrist-
maa, a beautiful special number will be
Issued, the number of pages being Increased, and pleasing features Introduced,
particulars of which will ho given In pro-
ceding Issues. These numbers will be
presented to subscribers without extra
charge.
