current Events and Opinions.
Tlio last evidence afforded of Mr.
Gladstone's justice, independence
nnd courage is shown in tho Irish
lund purchase bill, which as lie announces in parliament, will soon be
introduced. If the short synopsis
of this bill which has been telegraphed is at all correct, its introduction marks a revolution in the
methods pursued by tlie British
government in dealing with the
Irish land question. The principal
provisions are that the government
shall advance to tenants three-
fourths of the money necessary to
buy the lund which they tilt. The
lnnd lord in each case sball retain u
Hon on the holding to secure the
othi r fourth. The tenant is then
to be allowed to pay his debt in
instalments, the landlord being
compelled to wait until the greater
portion of the obligation to the
government is paid. The passage
of such a bill would do more to
allay discontent in Ireland than
almost anything else that could be
devised. Tho measure is worthy
of the man who secured the disestablishment of tho Irish church,
and however it may be looked upon
now, it will be regarded in the near
future as an act of simple justice.
If the bill becomes law, it will be
held forever as one of the greatest
achievements of Hr. Gladstone's
long and useful life. It mny, however, and probably will, meet with
furious criticism as soon as it is introduced. It is so startling, so sweeping in its nature. It may almost
be regarded, if not as an absolute
surrender to the philosophy of
Henry George, at least as a marked
sign of yielding to tbe theories iu
regard to the ownership of bind so
ably set forth and defended by tbat
philosopher. If Mr. Glndstono
really introduces a bill such ns is
described, secures its passage, and
inaugurates thc execution of its
terms, his fame in the eyes of posterity will be enhanced not a little.
—Seattle Post,
The English Tories euu not cope
with the English Liberals in debate. At the opening of tbo lute
attack upon tbe Government Lord
Hamilton made a violent personal
charge upon MV. Gladstone, but the
replies of Mr, Gladstone ami of Mr.
Chamberlain were so trenchant that
in closing the debate for tho Tories
Lord Randolph Churchill found
himself upon the defensive, und the
Government wns handsomely sustained. The assault of the Tories
wns so headlong that it left them in
the position of a war party before
the facts were known, and exposed
them to Mr. Gladstone's taunt that
they mndo up for their wnnt of
knowledge hy a multitude of baseless suppositions. The Tories wore
the more heedless in thoir assault,
as he showed, because ho had stated
that an arrangement had been
reached acceptable to England,
Russia, the Ameer of Afghanistan,
and Lord Dufferin. To ussume that
this was a craven surrender was to
assume that tho Ameer and Lord
Dufferin were cowardly; aud Mr.
Gladstone's final shot wus most telling, that the Tories became a war
party just when the blessed prospect of honorable peace appeared
to avert a war* which would havo
been a calamity to England, Russia
and the world. Tho significance of
the Government's majority upon the
practical vote of censure wns greater because it followed the announcement that the Soudan expedition is
abandoned, nnd thnt the troops will
tie withdrawn to the second cataract
at Wady Haifa. This iH unquestionably an inglorious end to an unwise enterprise, and the ascendency
of the prime minister is strikingly
shown hy his majority, the Parnellites voting against him. The Soudan expedition hns cost Lord Wolseley his prestige, and sheds no honor upon the English name or arms.
It has added another illustrious
namo to the list of English heroes,
and tho denth of Gordon will be
always a shadow upon the Gladstone
administration, although that administration can not bo justly hold
responsible for it, since it is now
plain that had General Stewart not
been wounded, Gordon would have
been relieved. Party spirit in England is very furious, and Mr. Glndstono is assailed with abitternoss
which our political contentions do
not surpass, and whieh, we may ob*
serve parenthetically, shows thnt a
reformed and non-partisan civil service does not necessarily destroy
parties. But amid nil the controversy it is evident that the prima
minister is by far the ablest political
leader in tho country. This conviction is so strong and universal that,
despite the hostility to him, his cou-
f' tiuuauco ut the hoad of affairs is
f thought to be dosirable. It is eveu
conceded by some of his opponents,
with tho remark that he led tho
country into the scrape, and he
•ought to Ite left to lead it out ngnin.

VOLUME 27
NEW   WESTMINSTER, B. C, WEDNESDAY, JUNE .'1, 1885.
NUMBER U
Indeed, it is clear that only a statesman of Mr. Gladstone's quality
could have withstood tbe tremendous pressure for war, and in tbe
face of the Egyptian failure bave
carried without a division the credit that hu asked. But a change
of ministry at this juncture, the
disappearance of Mr. Ghidstono
from control, the accession of the
Tories, the rise of the Jingo spirit,
and a war with Russia under Tory
management, would be a severer
strain than tho British Empire has
encountered since the wars of Napoleon.—Harper's Weekly.
British Oolumbia Timber.
Taking tho cue from all good millwrights who visit Chicago, Mr. Geo,
H. Patullo, of South Bay City','Midi,
slid up the elevator leading ta this
offico on Thursday. His rugged coun
tenance looked as though ho had
braved a severe winter, and he said ho
had. "I am on my way homo from
British Columbia," he remarked,
"where I hnve been building two mills
for thu Canadian Pacific Railroad
Company. Out there some of the
time the thermometer marked 44 degrees below zero. The snow was four
feet deep, und not fur from us it was
10 feot. But it would surprise you
how bearable such weather is out there.
Thu mills are at work for the construction department of the company. It's
no trick to get trees from which stick's
of timber frum 80 to 100 feet bug and
16x10 inches nt the small end, can hu
cut. The principal kinds of timber
are red fir. called Douglas pino, and
spruce. No; uo knots to speak of.
They open out as clear as a quill. You
can safely say thuru ts a big chance
there for somebody to do a good lumber business. The limber is magnificent. It stretches along the west
shore of the Columbia rivor for 100
mites, fuur to six miles wide. No
timber that is eut in the district east
of thero can compare with it. I was
over at the plant of the Bow River
Lumber Company, at Calgary, in the
Northwest Territories, and that company is selling comparatively poor
lumber at from $30 to 340 a thousand.
Making money? I should suggest they
are. Shingles that are so poor lhat 1
should not like to furnish tho nails to
put them on with, are worth $5 a
thousand. Price of that goud timber.
It is owned by the Canadian government, and I have not heard ot but
ono proposition to soil. That was §3
an acre, or 75 cents stumpngo. It is
dirt cheap, and if my pocket was lung
enough I should havo made myself a
timber baron, sure. You seo the
plains east must bo supplied from
those western forests; nnd as I have
said, this is thu only goud timber in
that section. I felt around one of thu
officials of thu road, and ho said lumber manufacturers, when they came,
would be fairly dealt with. Ho
thought a rato of $6 a thousand would
ho made to Calgary, a distance of 100
miles. I don't think that would be
bad for a monopoly! Yes, (he country
iB good for something besides lumber.
For grazing it is first-class. Major
Walker, of the Uow River company,
showed me cattle—daisies, too—that
had run out for four years. The
Indians brought us down from thu
north some of thu linust potatoes I
ever saw. There is an additional cost
for grub, but outside of that it doesn't
cost much more to manufacture lumber (here than here. A sawyer gets
$3.60 and found. Tho common hands
aru from Minneapolis and Chicago.
I don't know but I might to say, too,
that thu roller skating craze has got
out in that country. Thuy have rinks
nt Calgary, Medicino Hat, aud else-
whore. You can't deprivo them of the
luxuries of life, if they nre nut in the
wildurnoBS." — Northwestern Lumberman.
The Greatest Diamond Field.
Thu London Time* of April 10, in
an article on dinmoud fields, nfter stating the product of thc South African
mines at from £4,000,000 to £5,000,-
000 per annum of superior quality,
thus referred to tho only othor diamond-producing country now adding
much to the world's supply of Iho
most precious Btonu: "Brazilian diamonds aru not unexceptionable in quality, Such as they aru thc mines -yield
a muru handful, of a yearly worth of
£50,000." This statement wus uot
satisfactory to a London liim of diamond dealers, and tho Times of tho
-1st allowed itself to be corrected, publishing thu following communication:
Messrs. A. T. Hiraoh&Co. write frum
23, St. Mary-axe, April 20: "Prior to
the discovery of rough diamonds in
Griqunlnntl West, South Africa, lira-
nil, which wan thu principal source nf
supply nnd li.ul practically a monopoly,
exported a value of from £2,000,000
to £3,000,000 sterling por annum,
which cau be verified by thu official
statistics of the Brazilian Customs in
the ports of Rio Janeiro nud Bahia.
Even now, with a ducrunaod valuo, tho
production is still from £200,000 to
£300,000 per annum. Permit us to
point out at the same timo that tho
Cape diamonds have never buen able
to compete with thc Brazilian ones
either in qunlity or color, nnd thnt
consequently the hitter nro greatly preferred hy connoisseurs."
Minnesota n Gold State.
"Your beau seems very bashful,"
said a St. Paul mamma to hur daughter.
''Bashful!" echoed the daughter;
''hashful's no name for it."
"Why don't you uncourogu him a
little more ? Somo mon hnvo to hu
taught how to do thoir court ing. He's
a good catch."
"Encourage him!" said tho daughter; "ho cannot take the most palpable
hint. Why, only last night, wliun I
snt nll nlone on tho sofa, and ho perched up in a chair ns far awny as he could
get, I nuked him if ho didn't think it
strango that a man's arm and a woman's wnist seomed always io bo tho
same length, nml what do you think
ho did r
"Why, just what nny sensible mnn
would havo dono—triod it."
"Ho asked mo if I could Iind a
pioco of string so wo could measure
nnd ico if it wns so. Ain't he horrid !"

Public Meeting It. Dickinson
Notice John  Kobson
-\\t "British (Columbian.
WcdiH"*dn,v Morning, .Iiiih- it, INKS.
In ordering tlie release of Dumont
imd Dumois, tlie two Caiiiulitin hnlf ■
breeds arrested on American territory, the American government lias
only acted in accordance with international usage. It will lie remembered thut when Sitting Bull was
captured i\ few yeurs ago by Major
Walsh, of the Canadian mounted
police, he was released by order of
the Canadian government. Then:
is no luw, we believo, under which
prisoners taken under similar circumstances can he held.
Wo-are informed that a great
many men from tlie railway works
have lately como to tlio Royal Columbian Hospital for treatment. If
this he true it is a matter of whieh
the government ought to take notice. The railway contractor, we
believe, regularly collects hospital
dues from tiie employees, and if lie
has ceased to make provision for
disabled men lie ought to pay the
expenses of those who are forced to
find shelter in the public hospital.
The government ought to enquire
into this matter.
Teachers* Examinations.
It has been suggested to us by
two or three citizens tliat there is
no good reason why the annual
teachers' examination should not
sometimes be held in this city. The
suggestion is worthy of consideration. There are in all, we believe,
98 teachers employed in this province, and of these 44 ure situated on
the mainland. We believe that if
the teachers'examination were held
in a central place such as this eity,
the attendance would be larger, because the distance to bn travelled
by the majority would bn loss. It
is not fair to force mainland candidates for examination always to
cross tlie gulf. Tliere would be no
extra expense involved in the
change, and it would be a great, accommodation to a large number of
people whose convenience ought not
to be a matter of indifference to the
government. It is nut sullicient to
say that these examinations have
always been held in Victoria. Tho
fact that a wrong has existed for
many years does not give it a right
to exist always. Let our city rep
resentative, in conjunction with the
board of trustees, invite the attention of tlie government to the propriety of holding the next examination in this city, and let the government remember that it is pledged to
deal fairly with all parts of the
province, and to administer public
atl'airs with impartial justice.
Government Halls.
Hon. Edward Blake, leader of
the Canadian opposition, seems to
lie taking a great, deal of interest
in Britisli Columbia just now. Wlmt
motive prompts his frequent enquiries wc must leave nur readers
tu imagine, but his voice is more
often heard making enquiries nbout
this province thau the voices of our
own representatives. Tim other
day the following dialogue took
placo between him anil the minister
of railways;
Mr, Blake asked whether tho government supplied rails tor tlio government
section of the Cauadiun Pacific Hallway
in Uritish Columhia? Whether n contractor for the construction of any part
of the railway haa a right to uso those
rails for the transport of traflic over the
unballasted line without tlio omiBimt of
the government, ami on liis own terms
as to freight clinrgos?
Mr, I'npc said tho government had
supplied thc rails, He would have to
get thc opinion of tlie minister,of justice as to the right of thu contractor to
use the rails iu tlie manner referred to.
Mr, Blake—•Thii eontmctor has no
Hiich right. It |-niofc lieue-wary to send
fora written opinion.
We believe Mr. Blako is correct.
in his opinion, and Mr. Onderdonk
should never have been allowed at
all to use tlie railway for public
tratlie except on condition that the
tariff" should be such as would meet
the government's approval. We
have been told by gentlemen of
considerable experience that a great
many of the government rails which
Mr. Onderdonk has been using art;
almost entirely worthless. They
have beeu put on an unballasted
road, whore often the ties aud tlie
grades are such as to subject them
to unusually severe strains, and in
this position they have been made
to sustain tlie burden of a large
and heavy public trallic. They are
bont and twisted in such a way,
it is said, as to make them practically useless. These rails, tho
minister of railways admits, are
the property of the Dominion government. They were lent to the
railway contractor for construction
purposes, and we have pomted out
already that they have been used
by the contractor for the purpose of establishing a system of
monopoly and extortionate charges
that has impoverished the country.
Tlie charge against the conduct
of the minister of railways is,
therefore, two-fold. First, be let
the government rails bo spoiled by
being put to au unlawful use; secondly, he let them be used to the
serious detriment of the people of
this province.
A Sensible Appointment,
We are sure the decision reached
by the city council last Monday
night upon tlie question of a delegate will meet with tho hearty approval of our citizens generally, Ou
Saturday we expressed the opinion
that no better delegate could be
found thau Mr. Homer, and that it
would be worse than a waste of
municipal funds to send a person of
untried merit while one of undoubted ability might be obtained on the
spot, and at a very trilling expenditure, Wo are glad to find that a
large majority of the city councillors
held similar views. Indeed the
council may be said lo have been
unanimous in the opinion that. Mr.
Homer should be appointed; for
although Messrs. Donne and Hendry voted against the resolution,
neither of them expressed an opinion
adverse to M r. J Joiner's appointment,
and their voto was probably given
for the purpose of maintaining an
attitude consistent with the resolution passed at the previous meeting.
Having chosen a delegate in whom,
wn believe, the people repose very
great conlidence, tlie next, and not
the least important matter, is tlie
preparation of instructions for his
guidance. Fortunately Mr. Homer
understands thoroughly the ciremn-
stuiccs and wants of the city, and
we believe he will honestly concern
himself about our welfare and progress. Eut the city authorities must
consider carefully what proposals
they wish their delegate to place before the syndicate, and how far they
will go to secure an early construction uf the road. We have no doubt
that a large majority of the people
favor the commencement of railway
construction as soon as possible.
Every day that passes without direct connection with the C. P. R.
prolongs the uncertainty and commercial depression under which the
city has been languishing. Railway
connection may prove disappointing
to some whose expectations in that
direction have been larger than the
circumstances would justify, but we
think there is no room to doubt
thnt it will produce a result bcneli-
cial to our commercial interests.
For that reason let us have it without delay, and we shall then be in a
position of comparative independence with respect to the rival
routes whicli ore now dividing public attention, We uow repeat what
we have already stated more than
once, that New Westminster has
nothing to fear from any of her
rivals if she but take bold of the
opportunities which lie at hand. By
nature she is richly endowed, and
her destiny lies in the hands of her
people,
A Wort! of On.utlo.ii.
Among tlie things to be guarded
against tn considering the proposed
immediate construction of tlio railway fo connect this city with the
('. P. It., is the possibility of having
a road without any person to operate it. Auy eontmctor will build
it if we ean find tlie money, but
who will operate it when built?
Some persons have allowed thoir
enthusiasm to run riot with reason,
and have, proposed tliat tbe city itself should undertake the immediate
construction of this road if tho
syndicate will not. Hut, if the
syndicate, declines to construct tho
road Ihis year, mul the main line
cfHtios into the syndicate's hands on
the 1st, of July, tlio syndicate may
also decline to operate it until the
whole line bus been finished and
made ready for frullie. On tho lst
of July Mr. Ondordonk should lime
tlie road from Port Moody completed and ready for traflic. If he
fulfils his contract, the road will
then be handed over to the government, and the government may in
turn hand it over to the syndicate.
Ilut possibly the syndicate may not
be prepared to take over the road
at that time. Thc question then
comes up, who will be in possession
of thn road when our branch has
been built, and will the persons in
possession operate our branch as
part of the road? It is freely
stated that. Mr. Onderdonk cannot
complete his contract within the
time specified, and it is not improbable that he may apply for and obtain an extension. 11 does not
matter much who runs the line, if
it is run upon fair and impartial
principles. We feel suro the Dominion government, after all that
has been said in ttie house und in
the press, will not consent to an
extension of the time allowed by
agreement to Mr. Onderdonk unless upon condition that the tarifl"
of charges now existing be greatly
modified. But it may not seem to
be in Mr. Onderdonk's interest, or
in the interest of the government,
ur the syndicate, or of any person
or corporation in whose hands the
road may happen lo be, to operate
our branch at all until the final
completion of the whole work. In
such a case we shall have hastened
the construction of the branch line
to no purpose whatever. It will be
necessary, therefore, for our delegate to ascertain what is the nature
of future developments before committing the city to anything. We
must know who is lo hold the main
line from Port Moody to Savona,
and whether the persons holding it
will operate our branch when completed. Tliere must be a positive
undertaking to this efl'ect, or we
may just as well relinquish at onco
the gratification of seeing the immediate construction of our branch
railway. If we were connected
with the main line it. i.s quite probable that the transfer business which
now takes place at Port Hammond
would take place at this eity. For
all the purposes of provincial travel
and freight this would lie practically
the terminus of the road. That,
we beliovo, is the object sought for
by the promoters of immediate construction, but it can be accomplished
only by securing the operation of
the branch as well.

A good deal of dissatisfaction exists

Died ok Exhaustion.—It is reported that a man was found a few days
ngo on tho Yalo road, this sido of the
Serpentine, in an exhausted and helpless condition. Ho was brought to
Brownville, where ho died. It is supposed ho came from Washington Territory.
Strange Coincidenuh.—Ou Sunday
morning a man employed on tho rail
wuy at Maplo Ridge dropped down
dead suddenly while washing himsolf.
His'iiamo wns Sullivan, but nothing is
known about him beyond that. He
was buried on Monday aud as Mi-
Nelson's team was carrying him to the
grave ono of tho horses suddenly dropped down dead!
BuRitARt) Inlet,—Like tho rest of
the lower country, Burrard Inlot is
half asleep, with ono eyo just a littlo
bit open, watching for tho "boom."
Thero are two ships at Hastings Mill,
but nono at Moodyvillo, and many of
the logging camps aro shut down. A
ship will arrive at Moodyvillo for a
lend of lumber in a few days, which
will brighten things a littlo.
C0N1''EHKN0K  AT   MAPLE RlDOE. -A
cm respondent at Maple Ridgo asks us
to mako tho following nuiiouncuineut:
"The Hon. the Provincial Secretary
will meet the settlers of Maplo Ridgo
municipality at tho Ttnyii Hall on
Tuesday, the Uth iimt,, ut 1 o'clock
p. m,, for the purpose of deciding tho
appropriations for road work in tho
municipality this season."
A Needed Work,—Three or four
thousuud dollars would, we arc led to
believo, put tho old road to Granville
—that 18 New Westminster to Hastings and Hastings to Granville—into
good repair, and thus afford tho peoplo of this part of the country one
good drive. It should pay to do tho
work at this figure, if only to-encoui--
age tho keeping of horses, nud thereby
strengthen tho market for hay and
grain.

The World's Fair.—A Washington
speoial, speaking of tho disastrous outcome of tho Now Orleans world fair,
says: After this experience it is probable that New Orleans will nevor want
another exposition. Now Orleans is
too far away from tho centre of population. Tho people of California were
wild for a world s fair somo time ago,
but the'experience of New Orleans
has satisfied thom. California would
havo probabjy mado'a greater failure
of it than Now Orleans.
The Sailino Rack.—On Saturday
tho sailing rnco, postponed from the
Queen's Birthday, camo oil' on tho
river. Thero wero 3 entries: Wintemuto Bros., (J. Williams, and Jno.
Mclnnes, The rnco was won by Williams, but it is claimed for the Wintemute Bros, that tlieir boat weuld hnvo
como in first if it had not mot with nn
accident to its centreboard. As there
wus somo money remaining in tho
hands of thu committee, a second sailing raco was arranged. Tho snmu
three boats entered, and Wintemute
Bros, took the stakes.
Victoria to Cahiiioo.—From a Cariboo merchant, now in thia eity, we
are informed that freight during lust
summer, from Victoria to Btukerville,
in being forwarded by tho C. P. R. to
Cook's Ferry and thenco per ox teams,
cost §250 per ton on general merchandise and on coal oil $320 por ton. Iu
the days of steamers to Yalo and ox-
tenuis from that poiut to Barkerville,
the freight all round on tho samo class
of goods was §140 per ton. The same
gentleman has contracted for the transportation of his goods from Victoria
to Barkorville for tho coming season,
por steamers and ox-teums, at a shade
less than $140 per ton. Wo Bay to
tho public draw your own conclusions.
—Times,
Pouch Court.—Yesterday murning
thero were threo cases before Iho
police court for supplying liquor to
Indians. Capt. Pittendrigh and Mr.
.MeTiornan, J.Ps., occupied tho bench.
Iu the case of M. Mclver, Langley,
it was sh'-wii lhat he hnd repeatedly
violated tho law, and sold openly to
the Indians of lhat place. Fined g300.
Thos; Levi, of Port Hnncy, camo up
on a similar chargo, but tho enso was
laid over till 2 o'clock this afternoon.
Jno. Hull, convicted of the snmo *>T-
feiico at Lnngley, was lined $300 with
0 mos. in gaol at hard labor. He is au
old oll'ender. Thero is no possible excuse for such crimes us these, and we
are glad to seo the magistrates inflicting severe penalties.
A Bin Find.—A Washington dispatch of the llth ult. says: "Yestorday
a heavy square box, wrapped in red
tape and securely hound, was found iu
:i'i out-of-the-way nook ofthe treasury
vault. The key had beeu mislaid ami
a locksmith opened tho box.> It wns
found to contain a bottle nf diamond:;,
a but tie of pearls, a bottlo of attar of
roses and a lump of gold. One of the
old employees identified the articles us
presents to President Monroe, ahout
tho yonr 1823, from the Japanese government, and which had boon stored
in the 1101181117 pending tlio passage of
an Act of Congress authorizing their
acceptance. Congress failed to legislate on the subject, and thu articles
wore deposited in tho trensury, whoro
they have remained ever since.
Maokav's Invkstments.—Thero has
been much discussion in Wall street,
New York, ub to thu amount of capital
John W. Mackay has put in his Atlantic cable nnd postal telegraph enterprise. To-day Iho following figures
woro exhibited as being strictly accurate: Mr. Mackay lirst bought 81,000,-
000 of the postal company's bonds at
50. Then he loaned tho company
81,400,000 in cash, taking 95,000,000
of its bonds as security. He also owns
811,000,000 of the 810,000,000 of stock,
tint this probably did not cost him
much, if anything. In the construction of tho Afackay-Biuiuott cablus his
two-thirds bave cost him 84,070,000,
and it is a fact thnt he has loaned
James Gordon Houuctt money 011 tho
hitter's shares- about 81,000,000 it is
said.
A Fot'itKoi.n Work.--Burdock Blood
Bitters net at the same time upon tho
liver, the bowels, the kidueys nnd the
skin, relieving or curing in cveiyease.
Warranted satisfactory or money refunded,
Better Terms.—Mr. Blake asked
the government lust week if tho authorities of the Canadian Pacific railway
company agreed to the terms of lhe
resolutions, of which notice lias boen
given by the govornment 1 When was
such agreement signified to the government? In his reply Sir John Macdonald said the negotiations wero going ou between tho Canadian Pacific
railway and the govornment, principally with the president and vice-
president. Tho company desired hotter terniB than wore finally agreed
upon. The agreement was made verbally, and of courso was finally arranged immediately beforo notice of the
resolutions wub givon.
Stupidity.—Honest John's organ,
tho Columbian, says: "Tho Dominion
immigration agent informs us that
largo numbers of immigrants are settling on Vancouver Island who would
tako up land in tho mainland railway
belt if the regulations wero not so unreasonable, The Dominion government is losing these peoplo through its
stupidity." Tho Columbian evidently
considers Vancouver Island foreign
territory,—Victoria Standari. By no
means; but the Dominion government
immigration agent was appointed at
Victoria for tho express purpose of settling tho Dominion lands of tho province. There are no Dominion lands
on Vancouver Island, and. therefore,
the land regulations are'defeating tho
very object tho federal government
had in viow when it appointed an immigration .agent.
From the East.—Mr. Jumes Miller,
of this city, returned tho other day
from Manitoba and the North-west,
where ho hus been for some months
engaged in millwright work. Ho informs lis that lnrge numbers of immigrants were arriving at Winnipeg before he left, and it is believed that the
lato rebellion will not ut all interfere
with tho settlement and development
of the country. Indeed, it is tho
opinion of some that the effect will be
of an opposite kind. That part of
tho country where tho rebellion took
placo has nover beun so thoroughly explored by whito meu us it was by tho
Canadian volunteers, und its extent
nnd resources aro such that thuy will
be sure to attract settlors. It may
come to pass that tho rebellion was
only a blessing in disguise after atl.
If so, it most be admitted that the
disguise was vory complote.
The Revised Bible —Somo copies
of the Revised Bible woro received by
Monday's mail. As is already known,
tho changes are chiefly such verbal
changes as tho exact and critical
scholarship uf tho day showed to be
necessary in the interests of accurate
interpretation. But it is tho same old
Bible from which our fathers drew all
that was noblest in their character,
their civilization, their law. A good
example of the change occurs in tho
description of "behemoth" (Job 40,
23). Tho authorized version put a
strain upon our credulity by stating:
"Behold, he drinketh up a river and
hnstcth not: hu trustoth that he can
draw up Jordan into his mouth." But
tho revised version removes' the difficulty—"Behold, if 11 river overflow ho
troiuliieth noi: ho is confident though
Jordan swoll even to his mouth." He
is a good strong swimmer, that is to
say.       *

City Council. — Council met on
Monday night. Members all presont;
thu mayor 111 tho chair. A communication wns read from Mrs. DeBeck objecting to the construction of a tank
opposito hor property on Royal avenue. Mr. Deane thought it should
uot be constructed if property holders
objected. Tho mayor said a tank
would be needed there for tiro purposes, and tho council hud a right to
build one where it saw tit. This tank,
ho understood, was to cost about £400,
nnd if it could bo built by private parties and was available for tire purposes
he thought it would be a considerable
advantage. Mr. Elliott said iho chief
engineer oi the lire depart ment had
already recommended thu construction
of a tank iu that part of the city; aud
as this tank would bo built under direction of tho firo committeo, nud
would be available in case of firo, ho
did uot see what objection could be
made. Ho believed tho tank was to
be used only by Mr. Cunningham nud
Mr. Audrzejowski, aud it would always contain water enough for lire
purposes. Mr. Hendry suggested that
the matter lie ovei a week for consideration, and tho suggestion was
adopted. A complnint was received
from Mr. Rankin about a drain thnt
needed cleaning. Mr. Rankin wns informed that the drain is lint corporation proporty, and ho wns rtdvU'od to
clean it himsulf. I'm mission was
granted Dr. Mclnues to run a newer
drain across Columbia nt, Mr. Men-
dry asked that notion un Ids 81000 notice of motion be postponed one wouk,
It wub moved by Mr. Lord, Second I'd

authorising him to act as our special
delegate and agent to, negotiate with
tho C. P. R. syndicate for the inline*
diato construction of a railway to connect this citv with the main line of thn
C. P. R. Mr. Lord explained thai.
after the council hnd committed itself
to a delegate, the next tiling wns to
appoint one, und in his opinion Mr.
Homer wns the best delegate lhat
could be found. He wns on thu Bpot,
and knew jus) how to net. Mr. Deane
said that after the resolution [uiai-ed nt
last mooting committing the council ;u
the sending of a delcgute fr -ill here,
ho could uot consistently vote for ihis
motion. He hnd no objection to Mr.
Homer, but tho intention of thc roso-
lulion of Wednesday night wns evidently to send a delegate from hore,
uud ho wondered what had changed
that lnti'iitiiui. Mr. Hendry moved
that this resolution lie ovor till next
meeting? It was a matter in which
the council ought tn consult public
seiiliuieut. The mnyor snid a grunt
many poople had expressed themselves
opposed to tlm proposal imide at lust
meeting to send 11 delegate to Ottawa.
In fact, tho uolico of motion given by
Mr. Hendry hud produced tpiite a
commotion. Ho found it to be the
universal opinion that nny suoh expenditure was uncalled fnr, ami thai
Mr. Homer wus lhe best mnn we Qitllld
employ as delegate, Mr. Elliott saw
no need to lay the inalter over, It
would bo H.mie timo bofore instructions could bo prepared nnd put in Mr.
Homer's hands, and we might an well
begin to-night. For his part he believed Mr. Homer was the right mnn
in tho right place, nnd we would not
be justified iu sending a delegate from
here. Mr, Lord's motion was then
put uml carried, Messrs. Deane and
Hendry only voting nay. The mayor
appointed Messrs. Douglas, Elliott and
Deano to assist hiin iu preparing instructions for Mr, Homer. Mr. Deane,
however, declined to act, and Mr.
Calbick was appointed in his place.
Mr. Shiles gave notice that he would
ask au appropriation of 8250 to pay
the expenses of the delegate, and the
council adjourned till next Monday
night. ^

Fort Wrangel, Muy 25. — The
spring opens at this place with extraordinary fine weather. We hnvo had
loss ram than has hitherto been known
for years, Business hns opened up as
fairly us could bo oxpectod by both
merchants and shippers. The mail
steamship landed 100 tons of merchandise, the bulk of which goes up tho
Stick cun rivor to the Cassiar mines.
Tho Wi'ungel Indians that do the
freighting up the river aro on the
strike for 800 per ton from tliis plnco
to tho bund of navigation. Tho party
of 30 miners who'left some 20 days
ago for tlie Yukon woro stopped by
the Indians at tho head of the Chill-
coot inlot. Tho Indians wanted to
collect toll from the miners for going
into their country. The United States
steamer Pinto under command of H.
E, Nichols, proceeded to Chillknt. for
the purpose of seeing what was tho
cause of tho difficulty, and have matters put to right. Those Indians aro
tho most troublesome Indians in nil

The chief excitement was the trial of
tho first civil case in the district court,
which is holding its May term at
Sitka. Tho trial of tho case tho Sitka
Trading Company vs. the Pacific Const
Steamship Company lasted fivo days
and was most ably conducted, and
ended iu a hung jury. Great excitement exists here against the Rev,
Sheldon Jackson, the government
agent for education iu Alaska. Hi"

San Franoisco, May 21),— Advices
state that the Chinese government Intend creating a separate viccroyalty of
nil the western provinces hi Central Asia,
The object of this is to enable the Chinese government to contend more successfully nguinst Itussian encroachments.
Thc capital of the viccroyalty will be ut
Wrutnitsi, close to the present Russian
frontier. The Russians hnve bought up
all the coul in Yokohama, aud are making active enquiries for steamers for
transport purposes. Yokohama was the
scene of an extraordinary occurrence on
the sixth of May. As the British men-
of-war Agnmenon, Sapphire and Swift
steamed into port the Russian ship Vladimir Monarch, commanded by Admiral
Crown, commander in chief of thc Russian squadron in these seas, piped to
quarters, maimed guns and made every
preparation for immediate action. It is
stated that had as much as a rifle been
fired from the Russian vessel thc Again-
cnon would have rammed her. No explanation of the affair is made by the
Russian commander, About thirty
thousnnd people in Corca are snid to be
prepared to rise against the government,
overthrow it, nml drive foreigners, including Japanese, from Corea. Notice

London, May 80,—To-day is the dullest news day London hns had tor mouths.
Thcroseoms to be nothing going on worth

whoso actions generally furnish staple
political news, except Gladstone, are
away enjoying Whitsunday holiday, and
the premier is resting even from talking.
Tho Liberals seem to be satisfied with
the Anglo-Russian situation. The Conservatives, however, appear to be crowing over it. It is generally believed
among politicians that Russia has agreed
to allow Afghan claims to both Zullicknr
and Mnruchak. It does not appear,
however, that tho Cwir has agreed even
provisionally to any treaty binding bim
to refrain from fnrthur advances, Many
efforts havo been mado to secure from
him such an agreement, and their failure
tends to strengthen the conviction that
Russia has simply "dickered" in order to
gain time, and that she is determined to
continue her progress southward. The
Conservatives linu in this state of affairs
a subject for denuneiating Gladstone's
management of the dispute, Tory papers
declare that unless Russia gives Kngland
a guarantee against further advance
southwnrd, coupled with a pledge to respect the independence of Afghanistan,
tliere can be no probability of any desirable peace. The general public, on
tlio other hand, seem to place tho most
implicit confidence in Gladstone's statement that pence is assured. Under the
prospect held out by this assurance a
general and manifest improvement is
going on in the industries of the country.
All the building and transportation

From the Toronto Globe,
Perhaps the most artistic building on
the exhibition ground is thc pavilion of
the Dominion Organ aud Piano Company
of Bowmanville. It is moreover ono of
the most interesting to lovers of good
music as being the location uf a magnificent collection of instruments. The
erection of this building, which cost
about SI,000, became necessary to meet
the requirements ot the company, which
had been cramped for mom in the Main
lliiiiding, where it is impossible to judge
thc merits of bigh-cluss instruments. The
enterprise displayed by the Compnny in
providing suitable quarters on the
grounds for their business bns been rewarded, The large number of visitors
who call, inspect, and purchase proves
beyond question that tbe public approve
the provision made for their convenience
and comfort. Here a crowd may be
seen listening to test performances on
first-class instruments made by leading
city and country musicians.
llight well do the Company deserve
the success which they have achieved.
The present prosperous concern had, like
all great institutions, its day of small
things. It had its origin in Bowmanville
ubout fifteen years ago, the stock being
at that time largely held by parties unacquainted with thc business. About ten
years go John Wesley, the present secretary and treasurer; George Piggott, the
manager of the manufacturing department; nud W. S. Russell, superintendent of the tuning department, bought
out tho shareholders and assumed control, Since that date the business has
been booming. A further stimulus wus
given to thc concern by tho admission of
a Detroit millionaire asa partner. Piano-
making was added to the organ-manufacturing, and the establishment was increased, until it uow occupies a leading
position among Canadian undertakings.
It turns out nbout 'JOO organs and 50
pianos per month. These are produced
by 250 hands, who receive in wages
about §15,000 per month. The whole
civilized world is the firm's market, and
they have branches iu London and Manchester, England; Hamburg, Germany;
Adelaide and Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; and St. Petersburg,
Russia.
Thc instruments on exhibition in the
pavilion aro fair examples of thc Company's workmanship. An upright piano
of burr walnut is a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos there arc two kinds, a
square and a square grand. Thc former
is intended for standing against the sftle
wall of u room, and is convenient for
comparatively small apartments. The
square grand is finished on all aides, presents a handsome appearance, and is
suited for occupying a prominent position in drawing or music room. These
two instruments are of rosewood, with a
superfine polish, secured by hnnd rubbing witli oil for hours. The touch is
quick and cosy, the tone brilliant and
powerful. . In musical quality and appearance they are equal to the best
American pianos,
The organs made by tho Company are
known almost everywhere, lhey are
manufactured in all styles, and at all
prices, ranging from §50 to $1,000, Many
sample orgaus are shown in the pavilion.
Thc largest, organ which the Company
will exhibit, a double-bank pedal, is at
present at the Dominion Exhibition,
Montreal, but is expected bore at the
end of thc week, It is arranged to be
blown by Turk's water motor, which has
been placed iu position to await the
arrival of the big instrument. The orgaus run through all grades, from the
thousand dollar instrument down to the
Sarlor favorite. The cases show won*
erful variety. Many of these are of
rare beauty and skilful workmanship,
I'ho case which secured for the Company
a prize nt the Centennial Exhibition at
Philadelphia is still much admired, and
is largely manufactured. Coses for parlor organs arc chaste in design and artis
tie in execution. Tho musicians who
tested thc organa affirmed that for sweetness of tone and elasticity of touch thoy
are model instruments; while visitors
can themselves judge as to the beauty
and style of the cases,

Tehernn, the capital ot Pursin, in it
' plnco of untiquity. It was Agu Mn-
hommed Klinh, the founder of ihe
present dynnsty, who lirat lutnptod it
nbout a century ngo. A mud wull suv-
rouuda tho city, but it would be it mistake to any thnt the placo is fortilied
iu the modern sense of that word.
The wall ia distinctly prc-Vutubuu iu
its tracing Aa a police boundary, or
something of that sort, il mny serve
some purpose; but ns a defense to tho
city, if it were attacked by a modern
army, it would be useless. The supply of water ia brought into the town
by whnt the Persians cnll kanauts,
This in tho samo nti thu luirccz of
Afghanistan. These are tunnels simply "cut through the soil, iu parts at
some depth, and by this means wuter

being able to find the underground

were it not for these kiunuils. The
supply of water brought into Tehernn
by them is lnrge, anil the ijunlitv is
said to bo gou.l The bnunn are tinned
over with sun-dried brick, wliich is the
usual building mnteriul hereabout,
Tho object of this is to keep out the
■an. This makes them dnrk, but it is
highly picturesque. Tn some places
they nro painted with figures and ornaments, and nt one placo, where two
lines of bazaars cross, tho seat of the
kadi wns pointed out, with a cell below for prisoners, llmu cases are
tried bofore the publio, and punishment is inllicted—a very Eastern ami
primitive inudu jf Administering justice. At one part of the bazaar wo
noticed but shoemakers. I'nssim;
them we found nothing but huts being
made, a little distance further il was
tailors, then brassworkers. This
grouping of ench trade has many advantages, and it is not so many years
Bincc it was common in some towns at
home. Kabob shops, or eating-housus,
and tea-houses are to bo found scattered about the bazaar. Ill S"ine of
tho tea-houses nion wore sitting smoking kalaus, while stury-tellers were
amusing thom. The Oonstantiiioplo

Any one wishing to sec u place or this
kind in a still purely Eastern eon-
ditioii might como to Teheran. Wo
visited the old residency in the center of the town, where Sir Henry
Rawlinson and othor early Britisli
representatives lived. It ia at present
undergoing a complote repair. The
new legation is on the outskirts near
the gato of the road leading to Guln-
hok. lt is perhaps the best building

What is cocaine J
Tho discovery thnt cocaine will produce load uiu'oathe-iin, or insensibility
to pain, is next in importance tn tiio
disc.very tif the properties of other.
Cocainu liits nf late been used in important operations-uponthe oye; this,
and especially its recent employment
to allay the pain in tho terrible disease
under whicli tho illtislrioua patient,
General Grant, has Buffered so long,
have givoil it unusual prominonce. To
meot tho popular desire to know something of this agent, we givo an acemmt
ot the plant I'mm which Oucaino i* do-
rived, Tho earliest European travellers in Peru, mention tho uso, by lhe
natives, nf a loaf, whioh they chowod
to produce n oii ululating effect, similar
to that of opium, Tho loaves, known
as coca, aro froin a shrub wliich bears
the aame unlive name, and is cultivated in Huanuco, and othor mountainous
proviiices'ili the Peruvian Amies, which
have an altitude nf twu to five thousand
feet above lhe sea. The shrub reaches
tho height of six or eight foet, aud has
very thick, pvurgreon leave*. In ils
relationship the shrub is nearest to Ihe
flax and the geranium families. The
shrub ia cultivated in a rude manner
by the natives, who raise the young
plants from tho seeds, to form plantations known ns cecals. 1 n from three
to five years from planting, the shrub3
afford a gathering of leaves, and after
that a picking is mado annually. The
leaves are mature when they break on
being bent. They arc dried on platforms, or on a portion of ground mado
smooth by Btamping. The leaves when
dry aro packed iu baleB of about eighly
pounds, which are covered by a coarse
cloth mado by the natives, In this
form it is an important article of domestic traflic in Peru, and recently it
hus been sent to this country and to
Europe in conaiderablo quantities.
The wholesale value of the loaves is
from one dollar to one dollar and fifty
cents per pound. In Peru, tho use of
ctica ia very generul, especially among
the natives. The loaves, mixed with
lime, are chewed and the Babva swallowed, thu individunl remaining quiot
the while. As tho enjoyment of the
coca occurs four times each day, and
each time requites nt least hnlf an
hour, it ciiusea no littlo IntBlTuption to
work and to travel. The oH'eets of
coca uro said tu be most plonnurubly
intoxicating, uud those who bccoino
addicted to ita use, rarely abandon it.
It is claimed that by tho nae of Coca,
tho Peruvians can perform a great
amount of labor in the mines, and as
pprteraju carrying loads upun vory little fond, inelicinu pmiwpiBj ouwtino
(not "Cocoaine,1' as sometimes incorrectly written), has buen separated. Tho process ia expensive and
the product small, hence tho prico
hns beon very high, tho salts of Cocaine
having been sold at ovor a dollar a
grain. In view of the probable increased demand for coca, it would be
proper for our department of agriculture to consider thc possibility of successfully cultivating the shrub within
our own territory. — American Agriculturist.
"Up Salt River."— Tho origin of
the phrase, "Up Salt River," is thus
explained by tho Magazine of American History: Salt rive", geographically, is a tributary of llic Ohio. Its
source is in Kentucky, and, being very
crooked and difficult of navigation, it
was in oarly days a favorite stronghold
for rirer pirates. Those highwaymen
were in the habit of preying upon the
commerce of the Ohio and rowing
tlieir plunder up Salt rivor, whence it
was never recovered. Hence it cainu
to bo said of anything that wns irrevocably lost, "It's rowed up Salt
river." By an ousy transition it waa
applied to unsuccessful candidates.
'•He hu been rowed (ur rode) np Salt
rivar, or "We'll row him (or rido him)
Up Salt rivor next fall."
Zeiili Hlgglns* Confession.
Nothing could be rougher and more
rustic than tho old school-house, its
walls hung with cobwebs; ita rude slab
benches and docks hacked by many a
school-boy's knife; the plain, ink-stained pine table beforo the minister, with
its two tallow candlos, whoso dim rays
scarcely gave light onough tc road tho
hymns. There was nothing outward
to express the real greatness of what
was thoro iu reality.
From tho moment the Doctor entered ho was conscious of a present power.
There wna a hush, a stillness, and tho
words of hia prayer seemed to go out
into an atmosphere thrilling with emotion, and when he rose to speak ho
saw tho countenances of his parishion
ers with that change upon them which
comes from tlio waking up of tbe soul
to higher things. Hard, weather
bouteii fnecs were enkindled and eager;
every eye was fixed upon him; overy
word he spoko .seemed to excite a responsive uinntiiiu.
Tlie Doctor rend from thu Old Tea-
tnuiout tho stury nf Aelmn. Ho told
how the host, uf tho Lord hud boon
turned back because there wns one in
the eninp who had secreted in hia tout
nu accursed thing. He asked, "Oan it
bu now, nud hero, nuioiig ua who profess to he Christians, that wo aro secreting in our hearts somo- accursed
thing thnt prevents tlio good Spirit of
the Lord From working among us 1 Is
it pride / Is it our eovelmisimss 1 Is it
our hard feeling against a brother? Ia
there anything tlmt wo know to bo
wrong that wo refuse to make right—
anything that we know bclouga to God
that we nro withholding? if wo Christiana lived as high aa we ought, if we
lived up to our professions, would
thero bo any sinners unconverted? Let
us buwiiro how wo stand in iho way.
If the salt havo lost its sav'or wherewith shall it bo salted '! Oh, my breth-
threii, let us not hinder the work of
God. I look around oil this circle and
I miss the face of a sister who waa always here to help ns with Iter prayers;
now she is with the general assembly
nml church of tho first-born, whoso
names uro written iu heaven, with the
spirits of thu just made perfect. But
her soul will roihico with the angels of
God if Bbe looks down and boos us till
coining up to where wo ought to bo.
God grant that her prayers may bo
fulfilled in us. Lot us examine ourselves, brethren} lot us cast out the
stumbling-block, that the wny of tho
Lord may bo prepared."
Whon the Doctor snt down, suddenly there waa a alight movement, and
from a dark back seat rose the gaunt
form 'if Zeph Higgins, He waa denth-
Iv pale, and his form trembled with
emotion. Every eyo was fixed upon
hi ui, and people drew in their breath,
with involuntary surprise and suspense
"Wul, I must speak," he said.
"I'm a stumbling-block I've nllers
ben niie. I hain't never bun a Christian, that's jest the truth on't. 1 never
bed uughtor V bell in the church.
I've boon till wrong— tcrmt;/—Wltoxo!
I knew I was wrong, but I wouldn't
give tip. It's ben joat my awful wii,i..
I've pet up my will ag'in God Almighty.
I've sot it ag'in my neighbors—ng'in
tho minister nnd ag'iu the church. And
now the Lord's come out ag'in ine;
he's struck me down. I know he's got
a right—ho can do what he pleases—
but I ain't resigned—not a grain. 1
submit, 'cause I can't help myself; but
my hears hard and wicked. I expect
my day of grace is over. I ain't a
Ohristiaii, and 1 can't bo, ami I shall
sin to hell at lust, and sarve mc right!"
Anil Zcph sat down, grim and stony,
uud the neighbors looked ono on another in a sort of consternation, There
was a terrible earnestness in thoso
words that seemed to appall every one
aud prevent any from uttoi'lug the ordinary com nion places of religious ex
liprtatian. For a few moments thu
circle was silent aa the grave, when
Dr. Cuahiiig said, "Brethren, let us
pray;" and in his prayer ho seemed to
tiso" above earth and draw his wholo
fiook, with all their sins, and needs,
and wants, iiito the preseiice-chomber
ef heaven.
Ho prayed that ibe light of heaven
might shine into the darkened spirit of
their brother; that ho might give himself up utterly to the wil! of God; that
we might nil do it, that wo might become as little children in heaven.
With the wise tact whioh distinguished
his ministry he closed the meeting immediately alter tlio prayer with one or
two serious words of exhortation. He
feared lest what had been gained in
impression might be talked away did
he hold thu meeting open to the well-
meant, sincere, but uuinstructod efibrts
of the bn:thrun to meet a case like that
which had been laid open before them.
After the serivce waa over and the
throng slowly dispersed, Zeph remained
in his place, rigid and still. Ono or
two approached to apeak to him; thero
was, in fact, a tidu of genuine sympathy and brotherly feeling that longed
to express itself. Hn might have been
caught up in this powerful current aud
borne into a haven of pence, had he
been one to truss himself to the help
of others; but ho looked neither to the
right nor to the loft; his eyea wero
fixod ou llio floor; his brown, bony
hands held Ida old straw hat iu a crushing grasp; his wholo attitude and aspect wore repelling and stern to such a
degree that none dared address him.
The crowd slowly passed on and out.
Zeph sat alono, as ho thought; but the
minister, his wifo, and little Dolly had
remained at tho upper und of the room.
Suddenly, aa if sent by an irresistible
impulse, Dolly stepped rapidly down
tho room and with eager gazo laid her
pretty little timid hand upon hia shoulder, crying, iu a voice trumulous at
once with fear and with intensity, "oh,
why do you say that you cannot bo a
Christian? Don't you know that Christ
i.«« you?"
Ohriat lovoa ym\ Tho words thrilled
through his aoul wiili r* •tainse, new
power; he opened Itw eyoa and looked
astonished into tho littlo earnest,
pleading faco.
"Christ loves you," she repented;
"oh, do beliovo itl"
"Loves me?" ho aaid,slowly, "Why
shuuld lie?"
"But he does; ho loves us all. Ho
died for us. Ho died for you. Oh,
beliovo it, He'll help you; he'll make
you feel right. Only trust him.
Please say you will I"
Zeph looked at the little faco earnestly, in a softened, wondering way.
A tear slowly stole down Iub hard
cheek.
"Thank'e, dear child," ho said.
"You will behove it?"
"I'll try."
"You will lrust Him?"
Zeph paused n moment, thou roso
tip with a new and different oxprossion
in hio face, and said, iu a subdued and
earnest voice, "I will,"
"Amen!" eaid the Doctor, who Btood
listening; and ho silently graBpod tho
old man's hand.
