A Passenger's Story.
New York, March, 81.—The Sun's
London cable sayB: W. J. Hitchcock, of
New York, a passenger, tells tho following story of tho disaster to the City of
Paris: " On Tuesday at Bapur I was just
on the way to the driving room when I
heard, a sharp report, as if an explosion
had occurred and immediately afterward
the ship trembled from stem to stern
and all the electric lights suddenly went
out, In common witli others, I nastily
made my My on deck to ascertain what
had happened. 2 discovered that the
steamer bad suddenly listed over to the
starboard, and at the same moment immense volumes of steam issued from the
funnel, mind you, not from tbe steam
pipe. The deck was now pretty well
tilled with passengers, all more or less
scared and eager to know the nature of
the accident. Just then Captain Wat-
kins came up from tbe engine room,
whither he had rushed a moment before, and instantly all eyes were turned
upon him. The captain, notwithstanding that he knew the steamer's engines
were hopelessly damaged, that the water
wbb pouring into her rapidly, was as
cool as a June cucumber, and thiB had
an excellent effect upon the passengers
and cheered them up. I soon ascertained that the condition of the steamer
was very serious. The starboard engine
had given way in some unknown part
and the low pressure cylinder had been
smashed into fifty pieces. Tbe iron
bulkhead dividing the port aud starboard engines had been broken,
as were also the injector and water,
pipe i connection. Through a hole
in the.! bottom of the steamer,
caused by disconnected and broken machinery, the water was rushing into
both t engine rooms. Bad as all this
state of affairs waB for 1000 souls far out
into the Atlantic, it would unquestionably have been much worse but for the
splendid daring and presence of mind of
the second engineer who immediately
after the smash, and in face of the blinding and hissing steam which filled the
engine room, succeeded in shutting off!
the steam and this prevented what I
might have been a catastrophe for all
aboard had the ponderous machinery
been permitted to continue working.
The pumps were now all set agoing,
boats were cleared and provisioned
and held ready for use in case it Bhould
become necessay to take te them. Not a
soul aboard tlie steamer went to bed
that night, which was beautifully fine,
and the crowds of passengers remained
on deck while rockets were fired every!
half hour with a view to attract passing
vessels. The next morning I had occasion to go to the cabin, forward of the
engine room and saw the stewards up to
their waist in water which they were
removing with buckets. I asked them!
where the water was coming from, and
they said "Don't know sir, simply got
orders to bale it out." The officers of
the steamer tried their best to keep the'
passengers in ignorance of the gravity oft
the accident. The latter declare the
officers, also, were of opinion that but'
for tbe weather all would have gone to
the bottom in 24 hours. i

The Accident Explained,
Qiternston, March 31.—No incrcaso
In the amount of water in the City of
Paris has occurred since yesterday
The bottom of the steamship iB believed
to be uninjured, and it is supposed the
water which submerged the engines
found its way to them through the inlet
and outlet pipes of the engine rooms.
The giving way of the machinery
destroyed those pipes together with
valvcB and other auxilhn v fitting. This
permitted a free inrush oi water. An examination of the steamer's hull iB being
made by divers.
Failed.
London, March 81.—Tho Moss Bay

Ureat Destruction.
Gallatin, Tenn., Mar. 20.—The news
of the terrible storm of Thursday night
is slow to obtain. It is positioely known
that every house and building between
Bledsoe and Eulia in the path of the
storm are blown away, and hundreds of
people injured and without food, shelter
or raiment. It is reported that the whole
town of Dixon Springs, in Smith County, 35 miles distant, was swept out of
existence. Horses and cattle are lying
upon the ground in great numbers,
killed .by falling trees aud missiles of
flying timber. The Chesapeake & Nashville Railroad suffers more from the loss
of property than can hardly be imagined. In two places about 000 feet of
high trestle work waB destroyed, and
two 300 ton iron bridges were blown
from their pillars. They are a total loss.
A mile of track was torn up by the cyclone.  The loss of stock and other pro-
rerty in this district is estimated at
12,000,000.	
Latest Details.
Louisville, March 29.—The latest estimate of the dead places the figures between 120 and 150 people. One hundred
bodies have been recovered. The damage to property approximates $3,000,000
in Louisville alone. In Jeffersonville it
is about $750,000. Many of the wrecked
houses are a menace to life and to property that escaped the fury of the storm,
and they have been ordered to be torn
down, Gangs of men, under the direction of the city officers, are clearing
away the debris from the streets. The
embargo on business bus been raised
and traffic has been resumed. The picture of sorrow and desolation to be witnessed on Market street, where homeless women and children were wandering about, viewing tlie places from where
they so narrowly escaped, baffle., description. Main street iB thronged with
people contemplating the ruins. Little
work is being done except at the tobacco warehouses, where as many men as
could be secured are employed in removing the thousands of hogsheads of
tobacco to places of shelter.

John's, Newfoundland, report that the
steamer Kite has arrived tbere with 10,-

PROVINCIAL PARLIAMENT,
Friday'" Proceeding*.
(From Our Oum Correspondent
Mr. Speaker tookihe chair at 2 ;10 p. m.
Prayers by Rev. Arthur Beanlands.
The Hon. Mr. Turner moved the following resolutions: That whereas it is
shown by the Customs reports that Victoria is the sixtll port In the Dominion
of Canada, the Customs duties collected
in the year ending 30th June, 1889,
amounting to $790,723, and the number
of vessels entered that year being 585, of
a total tonnage of 558,078, and the number of passengers landing being 118,783,
and tho exports for tlio same vear being
$1,946,180; *
t That whereas the trade of this port is
likely to increase very considerably
during the coming year, owing to new
lines of steamers being, put on, and to
the greater efficiency of present lines,
and to tho larger number of sailing vessels making this port their destination;
And whereas owing iu part to the
great amount of steamer traffic, aud
partly to natural causes, the harbor of
Victoria is becoming silted up, and the
water, particularly in front of wharves.
is decreasing in depth, and the trade of
the port is thereby greatly Inconvenienced ;
Aud whereas \t is of the utmost importance it the interest of the Dominion,
as well as of the Province, that the trade
of this port should bo encouraged and
developed;
And whereas by a systematic ibid regular plan of dredging tbe harbor of
Victoria could at a comparatively small
cost be kept in a thoroughly commodious
and safe condition for the vessels frequenting it;
And whereas large expenditures are
annually made in eastern ports to render them commodious for shipping, and
to promote the commerce of the Dominion ;
Be it therefore resolved, That an
humble AddreBss be presented to His
Honor the Lieutenant-Governor praying
His Honor to urgently presB on tlio
Dominion Government the importance
of having the harbor of Victoria properly dredged and deepened, and having
some rocks removed from the channel
for the purpose of straightening it, and
the necessity, in the interest of commerce, of the work being at once proceeded with.
The honorable mover said the ground
was pretty well covered in the resolution and therefore he could not add
much to it. The honorable member for
Westminster City had brought iu a few
days ago a resolution of a somewhat
similar nature iu regard to the defining
of the channel of the Fraser River at its
mouth. That resolution was one of great
importance, not only to the inhabitants
on the banks of that great river, hut to
tho whole province and to Canada. The
present resolution was perhaps more
important to Victoria than nny other
part of the province. But it really had
a much broader reach than merely the
benefit of Victoria; that which helps to
improve tho harbor and increase the
trudo of this port or any other in tbe
country is of deep importance to tlie
whole province. Without this province
tho Dominion of Canada would have
beeu a very one-sided country; this was
the great western province of Canada
and should be properly appreciated by
Canada. There was a question in his
mind whether this province was dealt
with liberolly enough by the Dominion.
In fact he might say that he was sure it
was not.
Mr. Cunningham had much pleasure in seconding this resolution.
Ho felt the greatest interest, not only in
tbo harbor of Victoria, but every other
in the province. He thought the time
had como when we should demand our
just rights. In consideration of what
we paid iuto the Dominion treasury we
came out very short. It was time we
should insist upon our waterways and
harbors being properly kept, and that
we _\at a fair and just proportion of Dominion protection.
Mr, Duck had intended to second the
resolution, but as Mr, Cunningham had
done so he could only say that that gentleman took a very broad sensible nnd
liberal view of the question. Victoria
deserved more consideration in the matter of her harbor than she had received.
It was an undoubted fact that Victoria's
harbor was becoming shallower evory
year and the Dominion should not longer
ilelay in commencing those very necessary* improvements to the harbor.
Mr. Robson said it was gratifying to
witness the community of feeling that
was growing up between the different
cities of tbe Province. It did one good
to hear such unbiased testimony. Ono
cannot help concluding that the Dominion authorities do not realize the importance of this Province when one considers tlie various appropriations made
to other portions of the Dominion. The
unanimity und heartiness of feeling was
most encouraging to see; and it was
only when the Dominion Government
Baw that all sections of British Columbia
were joining bauds and working as one
man to attain their objects that the
Domininion Government would give
their earnest attention to the demands
being made upon them.
Mr. Semlin said the Importance of
this resolution must be quite apparent
to every one. The Eastern Provinces
have received large subsidies to improve
thoir harbors and waterways, and ho
did not blame the Dominion Government for granting that help; but the
Dominion Government would no doubt
soon awake to the importancot of the
wants of this Province in this direction,
Victoria was one of the ports of the
Dominion, and represented in great part
tho vast commerce of the Pacific, and
she should receive un equal share of
Dominion consideration with the other
ports.
Hon. Mr. Davie congratulated the
mover of the resolution. This was net
a local or sectional question. It was one
in which the whole Province nnd the
Dominion, and he might safely say the
empire, was interested. It was a matter
which could be raised abovo tlie sphere
of politics and party opinions. He was
sorry broad questions of this description
diet not oftener como beforo the House,
as they would help to elevate the tone
of debate. We have every reason to congratulate ourselves that when these
matters are prominently placed before
the Dominion House they give the question thoir best consideration, and do not
merely pigeon hole them and never do
any more in the matter.
Hon. Mr.Beavan thought it came with
exceedingly good grace from the honorable member for New Westminster City
in seconding this resolution. He was
much pleased that he had dono so. It
showed that the Gulf of Goorgla existed
only in imagination so fur as it made a
barrier between the interests of the
island and the mainland. The present
unanimity of sentiment would no doubt
happily prove the truth of the old
axiom* "United wo stand, divided wo
fall." He hoped the passing o» the
resolution would result in bringing
about the assistance desired.
Hcsolution carried unanimously.
Mr. Ladner presented a report from
tbo solect committee on the Game
Amendment Act. Report, received, read
a first timo and placed on the orders of
tho day for second readings on Monday
next.
The report on tho Coal Minos Bill was
adopted, third reading Monday next,
Tlie report on tho Land Registry Bill
was adopted, the bill read a thlm time
and passed.
Hon. Mr. Robson moved the second
reading of the Land Grants for Charitable Purposes Bill.   He said every reli
gious denomination in the city of Westminster received a grant of land free
within the city limits when Col. Moody
wus in charge of tbe Crown lands there,
and it would have been unjust to withhold this free grant from a denomination
which came forward late. The present
instance was the only one since Confederation.
Hon. Mr. Beaven said the House
should not be fettered on account of any
promise the Government might have
made in this connection.
Bill read a second time. Set for committee on Monday.
Report of committee on Crow's Nest
Railway Bill adopted, bill read a third

Hon. Mr. Beaven thought it unfortunate that the blighting influence of the

several instances of miners having formed companies in Cariboo which he said

to get anything out of their enterprise.
He considered that the proper place to
go for law upon thiB subject waB to the

laws concerning the same. The English
statute is so cumbrousandinystifyingthat
it is not all applicable to this Province.
One of the principal features in this bill

in regard to limitation of stock. If he

CORRESPONDENCE.
A SUGGESTION.
EuiToa Columhian—Sir: Apparently
the citizens of Now Westminster are
becoming impressed with a universal
idea ubout the impossibility of orecting
a traffic bridge across the river.
Allow me to assert that the feasibility
of the scheme if put in operation, when
completed, would be an untold ad ver lis -
ment of New Westminster enterprise,
aud iu pace with her present progress,
I do not wish to contradict the Mayor
or any of the Aldermen iu their assertions that it would cost $500,000 or
$150,000, i. e., if they would lie satistied
witli something less than a cantilever.
Knowing that a better communication
with the south side of the river would
add materially to our present progress,
and that the efficiency of a bridge will
be more advantageous to the communities, and when completed will not cost
one quarter of a ferry iu maintenance,
therefore, as a suggestion, |>efore it is too
late, will not the ratepayers insist upon
the Council opening a free competition
for designs for a bridge in consideration
of a just remuneration for the most appropriate design, which is undoubted a
public right.
By this means new ideas aud convictions might accrue other than the old
time designs, devised by some parasite,
who regardless of the public welfare,
administers only from one mind.

Mighty Bismarck.
London, March 29.—An attache
of the Austrian Legation, whose
name, for express reasons is withheld, in an interview to-day said:
"Since the perfidy of the Emperor William and the treatchery of the German
Conservatives in their endeavors to oust
Prince Bismarck from political life and
from the hearts of his countrymen, especially in. the matter of defeating the
Socialist bill in the last Reichstag, has
become pretty fully known, a strong reaction has set in towards the ex-Chancellor which will, undoubtedly in the
future, prove disastrous politically to
the Emperor's aspirations. Were Prince
Bismarck less loyal to his country or
loved Germany less, he could by raising
his mighty voice or by wielding his pun*
fent pen make the political life of the
Imperor and his Conservative enemies
of short duration indeed. It was a
knowledge of the means used to
force Prince Bismarck into retirement, more than any other factor,
that made hearts the of even the great
Socialist populace of Berlin go out
in sympathy to him, and was the
cause of the Imperialistic reception
which greeted him on his visit to the
Emperor and Berlin on Wednesday last.
No such demonstration of love and esteem has been accorded to any man in
Berlin in recent years. Very few of
the politicians in Berlin believe that
tho Emperor will succeed In obtaining a
working majority in the Reichstag, as it
is thought that the concessions which
will be asked for such services will far
exceed bin expectation. Of course the
usual routine Government measures will
pass the Reichstag without any difficulty, but there are doubts about the extra
war and naval credits receiving the
same treatment. The opinion Ib growing that If the Reichstag wero dissolved
by the Emperor for refusing to vote the
extra war and naval credits that his
Imperial Majesty could not rouse the
country to that enthusiasm for the army
and navy which Prince Bismarck excited when he dissolved the Reichstag
on the Septennate Bill in 1887, and that
Instead oi: the Cartel parties returning n
working majority as on tho latter occasion tbey would return with further
decimated numbers.
Mr. H. E. Connon, C. P. R. agent,
enjoyed a promotion yesterday of which
his friends in the city will be pleased to
learn. At least bis facial expression

It was learned since penning the foregoing that the advance entitles him to a

BRIDGE OR FERRY.
Now that railway matters have been
cleared up, so far at least as they have
any bearing on ordinary traffic
communication between this City
and the south side of the river,
and it is a definitely settled fact that tbe
City has the providing aud maintenance
of the necessary nicanss of communication directly under its own control, it
may be assumed that the Council will
lose no time in taking steps to provide
either a first-class traffic ferry or
traffic bridge to cross the river directly
opposite the City. The former, it has
been roughly estimated, will cost with
approaches, etc., about $50,000(thecost,
will not likely be less, and may be more).
The latter is variously estimated at from
a quarter to half a million undertaking,
Iu this connection, the suggestion of a
correspondent, in another column, that
the Council should open a free competition for designs and estimates for a traffic bridge at this point, with a view to
obtaining some practical information on
the question, is worth consideration.
At the best, however, a bridge,
it is to be feared, would be too
formidable an undertaking for the City
to assume unaided for some years to
come. It is true, considerable Government assistance should be obtainable,
but this will take time to secure, and,
unless the City is to boldly shoulder the
whole scheme and trust to its own resources for financing it through, the
bridge will not be built for two years or
more. A first-class free traffic ferry, on
the other hand, could be constructed and
put in complete running order beforo the
end of the present season, and such t
ferry, with proper approaches, and making trips every ten minutes between
either shoie, would offer conveniences
and facilities both for passengers and
freight that a bridge would hardly oxcel,
while the short period of time iu which
it could be established, as compared with
a bridge, iB a very important point in
its favor that cannot be overlooked. Our
correspondent's suggestion, however, if
acted upon immediately, bo that no loss
of time may ensue, might result in
throwing more light upon the subject
and assist the Council und ratepayers
in determining whether a bridge or ferry
shall be undertaken. The whole subject
is one of immediate and vital public interest to the people of this City and
of the south side of the river, und we invite the fullest discussion accordingly on
the ferry and bridge questions througli
these columns.
A REASONABLE REQUEST.
The Westminster and Vancouver
Tramway Company, whose objects are
the construction and operating of a single
or double track electric railway between
this City and Vancouver, lias received
incorporation by the Provincial Legislature, and the promoters of the enterprise have petitioned the Legislature to
grant them a guarantee of four per cent.
interest on $125,000 of the bonds of the
company, to enable the scheme to be
readily floated and construction undertaken without delay. That au electric
tramway connecting the twin terminal
cities will be of incalculable benefit to
the citizens of both, will not be questioned for u moment by anyone knowing
anything of the circumstances. That
such a means of communication is urgently needed, and would be largely patronized from the start, is patent to the
many whose business or inclination now
leads them to take one or the other of
the present roundubout and comparatively expensive means of travel between
the two cities, to wit, by railway or
stage. Not only would the electric railway be a great convenience aud au inestimable boon
to the citizens of Westminster und
Vancouver, but it would stimulate intercourse between the two cities to a wonderful extent, to their mutual advantage,
and tend to build up the suburbs of both
and increase greatly the value of property
between. The promoters of the Tramway,
some of the solid citizens of both cities,
among whom might be mentioned
Messrs. Benjamin Douglas and II. V.
Edmonds, of this City, and Mayor Op-
penheiiuer, of Vancouver, have not the
slightest idea of disposing of their charter, as tho Vancouver News, in au obviously interested article, has Insinuated
was their reason for asking for the guarantee, but ask for the guarantee to enable them to raise the necessary capital
and proceed with the construction of the
liue without delay. In giving the small
guarantee of interest required, for a
limited term of years, and properly conditioned otherwise, the Legislature will
not jeopardise or risk one cent of the
Provincial funds, as the Government will
hold the line nnd property of the company as security, aud the enterprise, It
has been shown, will prove u solvent and
remunerative one from the start. It is
true that the Provincial Legislature cannot lend its credit unlimitedly by guaranteeing interest to every scheme for
which such assistance might be asked,
but the Westminster and Vancouver
Electric Railway Ib one of the worthiest
and safest that eould be imagined, and
the action of the Government will be
appreciated if, through its unmistakable
majority In the House, It enables the
construction of the tramway in question
to be speedily undertaken and completed, which the small guarantee of
interest asked will very materially aid
In doing.   -'-. '.'-   . .

CANNON LIDDON.
The intelligence that the Queeu has
again put her foot down upon the proposal of Lord Salisbury to elevate Cannon Liddon to the Episcopal rank by
making him Bishop of St. Albans, in
place of Dr. Claughton, whose health for
some time has precluded him from attending to the necessary functions of his
high office, has again caused a great deal
of comment. Canon Liddon is n Churchman of such learning, piety, and great
eloquence, as to have become a popular
man with all parties. It Ib no secret
that Mr. Gladsoue, no less than the present English Prime Mlnsster, has, when
in office, urged the claims of Dr. Liddon
for preferment. Her Majesty, however,
does not like the Canon of St. Pauls, und
will not hear of his advancement, rumor
says, because upon a certain occasion be
had the courage to talk wholesome truth
in place of platitude when preaching at
Windsor. Whether that is the case or
not, the fact remains that probably tho
most eloquent preacher and popular divine in the English Church to-day, the
man who can alwas find a full congregation awaiting his voice under the dome
of London's great cathedral, is looked at
askance, and his just claims to advancement denied him, although he Ib strongly recommended by the leaders of both
political parties, and regarded pre-eminent both for piety and those other
qualifications which go to make up a
worthy pastor of souls, not alone by
those of his own particular school of
thought, but by liberal minded men of
both the Broad and Low sections, as
well as by many Nonconformists, who
have a high appreciation of his services
in the cause of morality and religion,
THE  MORMONS IN CANADA.
Governor Royal, of the Northwest
Territories, says the Mail, has just
paid a visit to the Mormon colony at
Lee's Creek, He states that the new
settlers are industrious and well-to-do,
and further, that they have no idea of
following the polygamous' practices of
their co-religionlsts to the south. Last
September the Minister of Customs
passed through the settlement, and
curried away an equally favorable impression. He reported that the Mormons observed our law, but that their
colony is blessed with a suspiciously
large proportion of women. On all
hands it was declared to him that
polygamy would not be introduced. At
the same time he was asked if the Government would kindly allow those persona who had a multiplicity of wives to
continue their extensive matrimonial
relations. The request preferred to Mr.
Bowell has shaken public faith somewhat in the idea that the new arrivals
are strictly mouogamous. But even if
this proposition had not been made,
continues the Mail very appropriately,
there is reason to fear that in principle
if not in practice the Mormons have a
leaning towards large domestic establishments. Mr. Stenhouse, the head
man of the colony, has on several occtt'
sions ventured into print in defence of
polygamy. Where, ho asks, is the law
thut prohibits it? How can you justly
condemn polygamy iu the Northwest
when the aborigines are not prevented
from practising it nnd when it is allowed
in the Indian Empire of Britain. Further than this, the entire theory of the
Mormon religion looks towards a plurality of marriages. Man, so the Mormons
teach, becomes in tho hereafter a ruler,
if not a god. His social position is
regulated by the strength of his
following. If he should bring with him
but one wife and a few children he will
occupy an insignificant place; whereas
the possessor of a dozen wives and fifty
or sixty children will hold a distinguished place. This leaching makes
assiduity iu matrimony rather than
faith or good works the basis upon which
men are to be judged. There are those
who think that this elevation of poly
gamy by the Mormons to the dignity of
a religious doctrine requires us to extend
to it every possible degree of toleration,
In this class of thinkers stands Mr,
Kaulbach, a member of the Senate,
Speaking on the Anti-Polygamy Bill recently Mr. Kaulbach said: "These Mor-
" mens appear to be a respectable com-
" munity, and are progressing rapidly
" in the Northwest. It is a question
" whether these people should be driven
"outof the country for having per-
' formed their religious duties in a way
" they believe is right. It is a serious
' matter to say whether they should be
'drivenout of Canada when we are
4 anxious to settle that country as rap-
"idly as possible In every legitimate
' way." To which the Mail retorts with
considerable force and effect as follows:
"The liberal sentiment which prompts
"this expression of opinion is commendable. But there Ib such a thing
"as running liberality into the ground,
4 A sect was once organized in the
1 United States, the chief doctrine of
4 which was the abandonment of matri-
' mony and the care of children by the
14 community rather than by the parents. Would society have been justl-
" fled in tolerating licentiousness simply
because its votaries defended it on the
" plea that their religion demanded it?
If the religion of a Thug inculcates
murder are we to be tolerant to mur-
"der? We havo to judge Morinonism,
" not by the standard of religion which
" its adherents set up, but by the stand-
41 ard of morality recognized throughout
the civilized world, If this be so,
44 Senator Kaulbach's plea goes for
41 naught, and the measure alined
against polygamy should be passed.
There can be no objection to the legls-
44 latlon If it be true, as declared by the
Mormons themselves, that the practice of polygamy is not upon their
programme."
wolves and jackals, the habit of barking
having been acquired under the influence
of domestication.
A new French law bestows certain advantages on fathers of more than seven
children. The resulting inquiry shows
that there are 2,000,000 households in
France in which there has been no child;
2,600,000, with 1; 2,300,000, with 2 children; 1,600,000, with 3; about 1,000,000,
with 4; 650,000, with 5; 320,000, with 6;
and 200,000, with 7 or more.
Tbere is a growing tendency among
chemists to regard the elements as varying arrrangements—produced at successive stages in the process of cooling—
of one original form of atom. Evidence
in favor of the hypothesis Is claimed in
the fact that some elements seem not to
have formed in the sun, while yet more
are absent from still hotter stars.
A New Speed-Indicator.—The principle of the anemometer, which may be
described as a Bmall self-registering
windmill, has been applied to a device
for indicating the speed of vessels. The
cup-armed wheel, protected as much as
possible, is placed under the keel of the
vessel umld-ships, and its motion Ib imparted to a vertical shaft passing upward to a point ou the deck, where the
number of revolutions caused by the
vessel's passage through the water is
registered on a dial.
A Rake Bird.—Much attention has
been drawn to the great Auk in recent
yenrs by the astonishing priceB paid by
collectors for its skinB and eggs, while Pah
las's Cormorant, the extinction of which
In the North Pacific corresponds to that
of the great Auk In the North Atlantic,
has beon scarcely heard of at all. Yet
Mr. Leonhard Stejneger, of the Smithsonian Institution, states that thiB bird
was the largest and handsomest of its
tribe. Only four specimens are known
to exist in museums, no one possesses
its eggs, and the first bones found and
preserved were obtained by Mr. Stejneger In 1882 near the northwestern extremity of Behring Island.

PROSPEROUS  FARMERS.
Agricultural Life tn the North IiUnd of
New Zetland.
For solid comfort and quiet enjoyment
of life, there could hardly be a more enviable lot than that of a bush-farmer In
the North Island of New Zealand. The
climate is truly temperate. The great*
est summer beat never exceeds eighty
degrees, and there is so little frost in
winter that tender plants—like geraniums and heliotropes—remain out aud
actually blossom all the year round.
Yet It is not at all an enervating climate. The bush-f armors are a race of
giants, and all domestic animals grow
to a great size, and are of prime quality.
Tbe bush-farmer usually buys his
land from the government, on deferred
payment's, or else gets a perpetual leaso.
That means that he pays a very low rent
for it until he has saved enough money to
make it his own, when he pays from $5
to 810 an acre for it, and gets a title
guaranteed from the government, whioh
ean not afterwards be questioned by
anybody. He can buy from twenty
acres to 030. Most of the bush-farms
are about 150 to 200 acres, and that
makes a very nice little property Indeed.
The land, when bought, is covered
with what is culled "virgin bush"—that
la, primeval forest, cypress and yew
trees, 100 feet or 150 feet high, with a
dense undergrowth of smaller vegetation, tangled and matted together hy
canes and wild vines and creeping
brambles. It is all very lovely to look
at, but it haa to be got rid of before the
land oan be used, and unlesi there is a
sawmill handy, where tlie timber mn be
sold, the only thing to do with ib ij to
fell It and burn it. This takes two
years before it is thoroughly done, hut
by that time tho land—which is exceedingly rich—is covered with a magnificent crop of grass, and the farmer is already in a position to start his dairy and
to rear young stook for market.
The bush-farmer builds his own house
of totara slabs, with the rugged brown
bark left on, and a good roof of thatch,
made of the rushes which abound on the
edge of the bush. Timber oosts nothing,
so he need not stint himself for space.
He generally begins with four good-sized
roomB. besides a loft overhead and a
cook's hut outside. He makes his
own furniture, too, unless he has some
household goods whioh he brings with
him in a bullock dray. Many of the
farm-houses in the buBh aro extremely
snug inside, with every domestic convenience, and all sorts of little comforts
and refinements. In the rougher ones
the furniture is limited to plain tables
and benohes of sawn timber, with bunks
against the wall to sleep in; and the
cooking utensils are only two In number—a frying-pan and a "hilly," or tin
pot, for boiling or stewing. But even
such primitive habitations as these are
by no means to be despised. They are
warm and wholesome, and when kept
clean are really very comfortable. Outside the bush-farmer usually plants
some scarlet geraniums, honeysuckles
and climbing roses, which soon spread
all over tho house and convert its rough
slabs and thatch into a bower of beauty.
Food abounds on bush farms, and the
universal rule tnere is tor men, women
and children to eat three square moat
meals a day. The hush Is full of wild
cattle, wild pigs, wild goats and wild
birds, so that there is no butcher's bill
to pay, and the larder is always supplied with plenty of the best at the cost
of a charge of powder and shot Then
every oroek swarms with eels—which
are a favorite article of diet—and an excellent vegotable culled Maori cabbage
grows all around. All that tbe farmer
has to buy is flour, sugar and tea, and
these are to be got cheaply enough at
the nearest village store and carried up
to the farm on a pack-horse or on the
farmer's own baok. The sturdy folks
there think nothing of carrying a
"swag" weighing 100 pounds pr 150
pounds for fifteen or twenty miles in a
day. The farm-house is usually woll
stoeked with bams, bacon, smoked beef
or mutton, and all descriptions of
stores; and if any number of visitors
arrive they are heartily welcomed, and
pressed lo eat and drink as much as
they llko. Intoxicating liquor is seldom seen in a Now Zealand bush-farm,
but tea and milk are universal beverages. The wealthier class of farmers,
however, not unfrequently keep a keg
of Scotch whisky or a case of Hollands
to treat a friend or celebrate high days
and holidays.
When once the bush Ib oleared and
the land is paid for the profits of tho
farm are considerable, and the bankers
say some of the snuggest accounts thoy
have are those of the bush-farmors.—

SHODDY   IS KING,
V—alj AU Hags Are lined In the Mann,
facturo of the Material.
Housewives muBt often havo wondered
where all tho rags go to after they pass
into the wagon of any one of tho severul
hundred ragmen who pass through tho
alleys with their monotonous cries.
These gatherers of old rags take them
to warehouses, where they are bought
in bulk and then assorted by girls according to quality. There was a time
when most of the rags were sent to
paper mills. Now a very small proportion of rags are made into paper, straw
and clay being the chief ingredients.
Fine linen paper, bo called, is made of
rags.
Ninety per cent, of the rags collected,
however, go into the manufacture of
"shoddy," of whioh cheap, ready-made
clothing Is manufactured. This stuff
is now made up Into the brightest
and moat attractive patterns, and oan
only be told when new from wool by
the expert, and by experience with the
wearer. I heard to-day of one "shoddy"
mill located at Newark, N. J„ whioh
has just increased its capacity to 00,000
pounds of "shoddy" per month, and
they have been running overtime for a
month.
"Shoddy is king," says the wool men,
and this accounts for the mercurial con:
dition of tbe wool market.—St Louis
Globe Democrat.
STRANGE PAINTINGS.
A Great Indian Battle Scene Depleted on
Books In New Mexico.
There has recently been discovered,
according to the Philadelphia Times,
near Dona Ana, N. M., on the banks of
the Bio Grande, a stone bearing the record in a series of piotures of an Indian
fight between two tribes. The piotures,
which are painted in bright red on the
face of the rock, which Ib nearly flat,
show them to be the work of a more
skillful hand than was common among
the Indians, and betrays even a slight
perception of perspective which is entirely unique. The lasting qualities of
tbe paint manufactured by the Indians,
the secret of which has never .been discovered, are well known, weather and
time producing no perceptible effect
upon it, but actually seeming to deepen
and intensify it.
The exact date of the inscription is, of
course, not to be arrived at, but from the
half-buried condition of the stone and
other marks it is safe to suppose that it
is at least three hundred years old, if
not of much more remote antiquity. Its
great age is proved further by there being no knowledge of such a tremendous
light as is here represented since the
coming of the white man to this region.
On being questioned on tbo subject,
however, an old Indian called Bobby
One-Bye, who is well known in these
parts, and who claims to be 110 years
old, declared that he had heard of a
great battle that occurred "longu, longa
ago," far to tho west. So vague was ho,
though, thut it was easy to sou thut he
merely repeated an old tradition. Tho
piotures are eight In number and divided from each other by linos into
chapters of the history of the event.
Bobby Om.-1-.ye Boomed perfectly familiar with this style of writing and readily translated the inscription.
The first picture represents the flguro
of an Indian brave, decoruted with
feathers and armed with tomuhuwk,
bow and quiver. Jteneuth tho warrior
are live hundred minute strokes which
toll the number of fighting men in tho
tribe. Tho second picture is lliut of a
bird flying toward tho setting Bun.
This, Bobby said, shown thut their journey was to tho westward. In smaller
figures are the now moon und a
buck, which gives the timo us being in
the first quarter of the buck moon, answering to July. Tho third picture consists of seven suns and as many stars,
which indicates that thoy were seven
days and nights on the way.
Tho noxt picture is that of the sun
rising over a number of wigwams und a
hand pointing with three fingers to a
crouching panther. According to tho
interpretation of the Indian tills signifies that they arrived ut tlie habitation of their enemies ut sunrise and
thon lay in wait threo .days. The fifth
picture shows where their enemies,
numbering 800, were surprised while
asleep. This is told by the wigwams,
near which lies a man sleeping und beneath him that number of strokes.
Thoy killed with the tomahawk '200 of
tlio foo and took fifty prisoners. Tho
sixth picture shows this hy a head cloven
with a tomahawk with 300 lines beneath, and a man with his hands and
feet bound and fifty linos. Thut their
own loss was 1T8 is represented In
tho seventh picture by a head so numbered, and inclosed in a bow, which wus
the emblom of honor. Tlio eighth
picturo shows thoir triumphal march
buck toward tho rising sun, thoir enemies in full flight, which is nipresentod
by a flight of broken arrows in tho opposite direction and the huts of the vanquished inflames. Tho stone is a large,
upright one, worn smooth by the action
of water in some past ago, and Is fully
twonty-ftvo feet in height by sixtoon
wide. The pictures begin near tho top,
extending to within four foot of the
base. It is a subject for speculation
how tho artist suspended or elevated
himself so as to bo able to paint tbe first
four or five of his sketches. The stone
was nearly buried under the sand and
earth, and its inscription was only accidentally discovered by a Mexican ranchman of the neighborhood, who, catching a glimpse of tho red paint, scraped
away enough of the soil to see thut it
wus tho work of man.
HUMOROUS.
Th* indifference or Women*
"Nobody," said a man whose long residence In New York entitles him to tho
distinction of being a deep and old observer, "is io utterly indifferent to public opinion as a fashionable woman. Sho
really does not care a rap one way or tho
other what the world thinks of hor as
long as Bhe has a chance to exeroise ber
pot hobbies. I suppose three of tho
most tremendous orusades that havo
ever taken place against womankind
were, In the first place, the movement
against wearing corsets; then the agitation about theorueltyof womon using
the dead bodies of beautiful song-birds
as ornaments for their hats; and, thirdly,
tbe cruelty and injustice of big hats In
theaters. Yet to-day the women go
gloriously forth laced to the limit, with
their hate covered with the corpses of
beautiful birds, and wearing hats that
would Bhame the mainsail of a down-
East schooner. Man Is of no account
whatever when he throws himself
against a woman's notion of fashion,—

THE  HONEST REPORTER.
A Definition of the Three Stages of Jour*
nallitto Development.
At the recent annual dinner of the
Pittsburgh Press Club George S. Wei-
sbons (St. George), one of the best-
known and wittiest newspaper men of
the State, got off the following in response to the toast, "Tbe Reporter:"
"There are three grand divisions,"
Mr. Welshons said, "in newspaper work
—journalists, reporters and editors.
Speaking more accurately there are
three stages of development. A journalist is a calf reporter. He is a reporter in the miniature tadpole stage,
when his head is so big that it takes all
the rest of his person to shove it around.
If he is lucky, by and by ho becomes a
reporter. After a reporter's legs wear
out they make an editor out of him.
The final stage of a frog, you know—
the extreme removal from the tadpole
—is the bull-frog, too stiff to jump, too
old and tough to eat, who just sits on
tho bank and bellows. That is an editor.
"In the old days tho editor called a
man a chicken thief, nowadays the reporter finds the feathers in his back
yard. The weapon of the old-time editor was the epithet; that of the modern
reporter is the evidence. What the editor used to assort the reporter now
proves.
"If the people who complain of what
the reporter writes about them would
only consider what ho does not write
about them they would shrine him in
the .friendliest corner of their hearts.
The waste-basketB in a dally newspapor
ofllce of any town do more to keep its
citizens in good repute than any othor
ageney excepting the fear of the law
and tho hereafter. Not all that the reporter writes is truth. He is not infallible hlinself, and thoso who are tho
sources of his Information are muoh less
so. Thero aro very many men who oan not
tell a straight story. There are others
who do not try to. The man who tells
the story to the reporter is usually an
Interested party. He has a purpose to
serve in metamorphosing thiB or suppressing that. The reporter has no desire except to get the truth accurately
and completely, and to write it quickly
and entertainingly.
"AH men do not love theroporter, and
X am glad of it. The fear and hatred of
bad men is as <t ohapletabove his brows.
It is the assurance of his honesty to hiB
badge of honor as a servant of truth. If
a time ever comes when all men love
the reporter it wlll be time to bury him,
He will have forgotten his mission, betrayed his trust and shamed the noble
fellowship of men who have made tho
white oross of the Pittsburgh reporter
the decoration of a legion of honor."
A  TEMPERANCE  STORY.
Frelght-HandluM Tap a Barrel of Whisky
anil Then Wish Thejr Hadn't,
An exceedingly praotlcal temperance
lecture was preached to the freight-
handlers at one of the stations of the
Pennsylvania railroad a short time ago,
says the Now York Tribune. Tho result is that each man now wears a bluo
ribbon and all mysterious-looking casks
and barrels which are put off at that
station and for which tnere are no
known owners are left severely alone.
A few months ago there oame to this
place by express a big barrel unaccompanied by any thing and having no
mark by which the owner or its destination could be learned. There was
an odor of whisky about tt, and it looked
suspiciously like a whisky barrel. A
tracer was sent ovor tho road, but nothing could bo learned as to whero It
camo from, to whom it was going or by
whom it was owned. It stood on the
platform for a few days until it beoame
a nuisance. Tho freight-handlers eyed
it rather longingly, but could not get at
it while it waa in that conspicuous place.
By the order of the station agent tho
barrel was taken to the loft of tho storeroom to await for a possible owner who
might turn up some time in the future.
It had been thero for two or three
months whon one of tho express companies' men wont to tho station agent
and told him he was looking for a barrel of alcohol with two skeletons Inside
oftt.
The station agont remombered tbo
mysteriouB barrel and took the searcher
to the loft. He immediately identified
the barrel as the one whioh he was look-
ir.g for. A kick from his foot produced
a hollow sound, followed by tho rattling
of some dry objects inside. A closer examination showed that numerous gimlet holes had been mado in the head,
and that the holes had been plugged up
with matches.
The station agent sunt for the freight-
handlers to have them como to the loft
and help take the barrel down.
"It's empty," faltered ono of the men.
"Yes, I know; but 1 want to see If
there Is any thing inside of It," said the.
express agent, at the sumo time breaking in the bead of the barrel with an
axe. Out tumbled the two skeletons, to
the horror and dismay of the freight-
handlers. They wore dumfounded and
fled from the loft instantly. Not one of
the men turned up for work for three
days. AU sent around word In the morning that they were sick. When they
did oome baok each wore a blue ribbon,
and they haven't-since been known to
take a drink ot whisky. Unolaimed
freight is absolutely safe at the station
now. •
AN  IDEAL HUSBAND.
Tne Womanlf Sentiments Eipreised by
ft Milwaukee Girl.
At a gathering of young ladies one
evening last week one of them proposed that the party draw up in a circle,
and each in turn give her opinion as to
the qualifications of an ideal husband.
It was immediately agreed to, says the
Milwaukee Wisconsin, and oh! the dl
versltyof prerequisites would cause %
man to foar and tremble as to his no-
coptubleness oven were he an ungel sans
wings. One wanted a rich man, one a
famous ono, another a handsome one;
some wanted a title, and must of them
wanted all theso things combined.
At last It camo the turnot a sweet,
sunny little creature tn pink and white.
For a moment her fauo grew serious,
and thon came her verdict:
"He must be moral, well-bred, and
have some fixed and honorable method
of making a living."
What! not one word about his botug
titled, rloh or handsome!
"But," she continued, "the man I
marry must be my othor self. He must
be sympathetic with mo in my tastes
and pursuits. When ho oomos I shall
know him, and all tho lovo I havo to
give shall bo his, and I shall expect love
In return for love. Of course, if be In
young and rich and handsome bo much
the bettor, but I should not love him
less were he none of these things."
True womanly sontlmentsl Would
that they could find an echo in every
woman's heart The number of unhappy marriages would be lessoned, and
divorce unknown. Many, fascinated by
outward glamor, rush headlong into
matrimony, and too lato find that the
tastes and inclinations of husband and
wife differ as widely as night and day.
For lnstanoe, one ts llterlry and fond of
retirement, the other dosjHsosliteratiire
and Is Inclined to society; each will naturally sook the society and conversation
of those whoso tastes and opinions coincide with his own, The consequence ts
an estrangement of husband and wifo tn
things the world oalls trivial, but which,
in reality, decide their happiness; and
each would find It easy to sacrifice all
tho other's charms for tho one charm
not thero, namely, a responsive heart In
»U things.

Edward Allen, Member for Lillooet,
Who Haa Been Sick for Soma Weeks,
Dies at Victoria thin  Morning.
I From Our Own Correspondent.)
Victoria, March 31,—Edward Allen,
M. P. P. for Lilloot, died this morning
at St. Joseph's Hospital, after an illness
of about eleven days. His wife and son
arrived from Lillooet last week, and
were with the deceased until the end.
" Ned" Allen, as the late member wob
almost universally called, was born in
Nottingham, England, and at the time
of his death was in his sixty-second year.
He emigrated to British Columbia in the
early sixties. He mined for some time
in Cariboo, and afterwards resided at
Big Bend, where he was proprietor of
the ferry across the Columbia River.
For three years he wbb assessor aud collector for Lillooet, which
position he resigned in 1878. In
1882, with the late Premier, he was Government candidate for Lillooet, the opponents of the Government ticket being
Brown, McLellan, Saul and Morrison.
Again in 1886 he was returned with the
Hon. Mr. Davie, this being hiB eighth
session. Strong in his political principles, a firm and steadfast friend, generous to a fault and, devoted to the interests of the people, during his long
residence iu the Province he had made
many friends.
ALL POPPYCOCK.
March 23rd. Particulars of the schooner's detention were telegraphed late tonight to the Secretary of the Treasury at
Washington, and also to the Department
at Ottawa, Canada, and the owners at
Victoria have received intimation officially that the cutter's instructions from
the Department authorized the seizure
by American revenue cutters of all sealing vessels seized last year and ordered
to United   States ports,  and    which

there is still lots of room in that locality

The annual public meeting of the
Young Men's Christian Association will
beheld in the Methodist church on
Tuesday evening. The object of this
anniversary is to Inform the public of
what has been done in the past, and
what it is proposed to do in the coming
year. The manner In which the money
subscribed for the support of the institution waB utilized will be detailed, and
an estimate of the probable expenses
for the coming year given. While no
subscriptions or collection will be asked
at this meeting, all the citizens who
usually help in the financial support of
the Association and others interested
aro cordially invited to be present that
they may know whether to approve or
disapprove of the manner of expenditure of the funds and of the general
working of the institution.
The orchestra, which was organized
in December of last year, in connection
with the Association, will render several
selections during the evening,
An Immense   8awmlll.
Yesterday Messrs. Hugitt and Mclii-
tyre, of Wisconsin, who purchased the
mill owned by Sutton & Co., situated in
Cowicban Bay, placed the order for
machinery for their new mill, the cost of
which, In position, will be not less than
(50,000. The order is for a mill of a capacity of 150,000 feet per diem. It includes six steel boilers, 22 feet by 50
inches, an engine of 250 horse power, a
largo and improved gang, an improved
saw carriage (the first of the kind on the
const), an improved 00-inch gang edger,
steam feed all tho way througb.and live
rollers, a full plant of machine slum
tools, including lathe, plane, drill, Wt
cutter, bond saw, etc. The order was
placed with Mr. F. 0. Strickland, of
Westminster, representing eastern firms.
The mill will be A1 in every respect and
built so that it ean be enlarged ami ils
capacity doubled if neecHsury. The linn
have secured the services of Mr. Satsider
to superintend the work of construction.
Mr. SalBider constrvcted the large St.
Paul and Tacoma mill at Tacoma, and
has the reputation of being one of the
best millwrights on the Pacific coast
The business is to be carried on by a
company of Wisconsin capitalists, who
propose to expend among their first
moves, from (30,000 to (40,000 In clearing
Cowicban river and preparing it to run
logs,—Friday's Times,
The Eye of the Mole.—The old belief in the blindness of the mole—a belief justified by the creature's invisible
eyos and odd life—seems to have been
partially supplanted by theories of defective vision, one naturalist oxguing
that the eyes are near-sighted. A thorough microscopical examination has
lately been made in Germany by Carl
Hess, who fails to confirm either of
these views. The mole's eye—though
only a twenty-fifth of an inch in diameter—appears to, be perfectly developed,
and as well adapted for seeing as that of
any mammal. The mole doubtless
makes use of his eyes when he is above
the surface, especially in swimming,
and he is able to do this by simply altering the erect position of tbe hairs which
cover and protect the eyes when underground.
"Truth'*."   Latest Sensation   Falls   Far
Short ants Object.
Truth published a sensational article
yesterday morning, the effect of which
had it come from a more trusted and reliable source might have resulted very
seriously to the welfare of the city. The
essence of their latest is: That the reason for the abandonment of the bonus
und Lulu Island grant, together with
tho other privileges in this city, wob
that Mr. Bennett had Itecn offered by
the C. P. R. 250 acres of land on English Bay to carry his road through to
that point, the condition being that tho
Hue should be built to that point as
soon as possible.
A representative of Tub Columbian
spent a couple of hours to-day interviewing persons who would lie most
likely to know something of this matter
should there happen to be any truth in
it. On all Bides the same answer was
received "That the story is sensational
and pure nonsense, and only calculated
to injure the city." Those who are best
posted, and would be the first to hear of
any such proposition, declare it to be a
fabrication, pure and simple, and that
they had never even heard the subject
referred to by Mr, Bennett or his associates.
Tbe sensation condemns itself.
Every child in the country knows that
theC.P.R. and the Northern Pacific are
fighting a railway war all the way from
the Atlantic to the Pacific, therefore it
iB most unlikely of all things that the
Canadian Pacific should invite Its most
powerful rival to share the supposed
wonderful advantages of the great terminus on English Bay, and give it a
bomiB to eutor Vancouver and carry off
a large share of the local and foreign
freights. The C.P.R. will never allow
the Northern Pacific to enter Vancouver
without u fight, far less encourage it b<
tho way of a bonus. The sensation L
rather too absurd for the most verdant
tenderfoot to swallow. Trim up your
torch, Mr. Truth; its burning mighty
dim at present.
Mathers A Milligan, finding that their
fine new wharf and shed is too small for
there ever increasing business, have decided to make a large addition to theme
Botwco 50 and 00 feet will be added to
both wharf and shed, and it is expected
this enlargement will give ample room
for a yenr or two at least

*   A Bemarknble Bcane.
A remarkable scene might have been
witnessed on Front street this morning
about 11 o'clock, directly iu front of Mr,
Jus. Wise's store. First a burly Si wash
shot out of the store door, sideways,
performed a sort of "cartwheel" movement nnd finally slid gracefully into the
mud. Then a handsomely painted
klootchman, holding a little girl by the
hand, came out almost flying, and
landed easily on the shoulders of tlie
Siwash who was still sprawling in the
mud. Noxt came a coruptont old
klootchman, head foremost, striking her
pvdecessor in the stomach and falling
with her into the mud. Lastly a young
halfbreed turned a sort of somersault
and landed safely on the walk. At first
the startled spectators thought the man
waB bleeding to death, as a dark liquid
was flowing from his side in a perfect
stream; a closer inspection showed that
it was not blood, but the contents of a
whisky bottle which had been broken
by the fall. Then the young klootchman struggled to her feet, and, in a
frenzy of rage, grasped her child by tho
hair of the head, raised her from the
ground and shook her down several
times in the manner that a farmer
shakes down a Back of grain. How long
she would have kept up this sort of
thing is hard to tell, but the humane
spectators wont to the rescue and delivered the child from her hands. After
gathering up their itkaths the Indians
hurried down the street and disappeared
in the direction of the swamp,
As thiB pantomiue called for some
explanation, a representative of
The Columbian dropped in and asked
Mr. Wise for the story. Mr. Wise
explained that the Indians had been
calling at his store almost every day for
a week, looking at and pricing goods,
but buying nothing. He thought this
rather remarkable and set a watch on
them, with the result that he caught the
party busy stowing away soap, boots and
other goods whenever he appeared to be
looking in another direction. Being
alono at the time, und not able to leave
the shop to call the assistance of tho
xilice, lie first stripped them of thoir
jooty and then bundled them out in the
manner above described. It is probable
a warrant will be sworn out for tlie arrest
of the thieves, und an example made
that will be a warning to others. The
Indians implicated iu this affair are from
the north, are heathens and a bad lot
generally, and public opinion says Mr,
.Vise handled them rather too easily.

THE PATHFINDER SEIZED
By   the   United   States   Cutter Cor win
and Taken to Tort Townsend,
A despatch from Port Townsend says:
The British sealing Bchooner Pathfinder,
Capt. Arthur Morgan, of Victoria, was
towed into port to-night by the revenue
cutter Thomas Corwin. The schooner
was found at Neah Bay, Washington,
with her rudder disabled, and was taken
Into custody by the cutter, Tlie Pathfinder is now seized, or detained, pending instructions from the Department at
Washington.
This action opens the Behring Sea
squabble again. The schooner wns one
of the British sealing vessels seized last
year In Bohrlng's Sea by the revenue
cutter Rush. She was ordered to
Sitka. Alaska,, lu charge of one seaman
as prize muster, and. Instead of obeying
orders, escaped to Victorlu. She has
been commanded by different captains
since, during which time she has boon
engaged in Healing off the American and
British coast until this morning when
eumpelled to go into Neah Bav for
repairs. Capt. Hooinr of the Corwin
holds the vessel pending the decision of
the department relative to whether tho
vessel is amenable to the law regarding
sealing In Bohrlng's Sua, for which Bhe
wub ilrst seized.
The Pathfinder sailed from Victoria
two mouths ago and had secured one
hundred nnd fifty seals off the coast of
Vancouver Island and the State of Washington. During the westerly gale her
rudder band broke off Cape Flattery on
