It is ait always possible to rend
compUoentljr the opinions of Amer-
lOMrpspen oni qneglibn .(Tecting the
inurosts of Oanada, but sometimes
|one oomeg aoros. a fair statement
from the other aide. The following
from the Brooklyn Sagie ia one of
the exceptions. After referring to
the appointment of Mr. Chamberlain as one of the fishery commission, the Eayh saya: "'flie intelligence is welcome on this side of the
Atlantic, not because Hr. Chamberlain has been selected as one of the
commissioners, but because the continuation of the strife was extreme •
ly discreditable to all concerned.
Our people are tolerably familiar
with the origin of the trouble, and
have a general idea of of the questions at issue. From the close of
the revolutionary war up to the
little unpleasantness with Great
Britain in 1812, the enterprising
fishermen of New England were
comparatively free to go and come
as they pleased in Canadian waters.
They caught flab wherever the fish
abounded, without regard .to lines
or limits. Grim visaged war put
sn end tb these privileges, and after
the cessation of hostilities a new
covenant between the late belligerents, in the shape of the treaty of
1818, was executed. 'Iho essential
feature of this instrument was the
clause whereby the United States
abandoned all claim to participate,
in the "inshore" fisheries, and the
rights oi our fishermen wen defined.
Acccording to that definition they
wen entitled to enter Canadian
ports for the purpose of obtaining
wood, water and repairs, or for the
•aluof shelter "and for no other
purpose whatever." These words
an the exact language of the tnaty.
This limitation proved to be a very
vexations one, for the fish had a
disagreeable habit ot flocking inshore from time to time, so that the
privilege of tht catch outside the
three mile limit was often a barren
one for bar hardy fishmen, and they
began to wish the treaty of 1818 at
the bottom of the ocean. Various
efforts to mitigate the hardships of
these terms were made; after more
than forty years of crimination and
recrimination the treaty of Washington restored to the United States
the right of fishing within the
marine league from thon, and in
returned grant Canadian fish free
ontty to our ports. Unfortunately
and as if to spite tbe friends of international concord, no sooner was
the treaty concluded than the fish
deserted the inshore waters and
took to the deep sea. The chagrin
of our fishermen was excessive and
undisguised. They had gained
nothing by the convention, |wheroas
their Canadian rivals had obtained
the substantial privilege of a free
entry of their catch. The upshot
of it was that tbe United States
gave notice of a desire to get rid of
the treaty, and accordance therewith
it was duly abrogated at the expire
tion of the ten yean specified. The
abrogation restored the situation as
it was under the terms of the convention of 1818, and in order to
avoid the limitations of that instrument recourse was had on our part
to an anoient statue of the United
States whereby captains of fishing
vessels taking out what is oallod a
"touch and trade permit" were empowered to carry on trade like regular merchantmen. It is idle for
us to deny that this was nothing
but an artifice pure and simple. It
aimed to nullify the provisions of a
treaty which forbide our fishermen
to enter Canadian ports for any
purpose wye that of obtaining
wood, water, shelter and repairs.
But it did not work. The shrewd
Blue Noses detected the character
of the stratagem at a glance. They
pronounced th. pretension that an
American fishing vessel could venture within the murine league under
cover of a touch and trade permit,
absurd. If such a pretension wore
admitted it would amount to a total
obliteration ofthe distinction between regular trading vessels and
fishing smacks, It would open the
way for incessant and surreptitious
violations of the treaty of 1818. It
would be a practioal abrogation of
the restrictions established by that
instrument. So the touoh and
trade permit dodge, while defended
by the representatives of the Gloit-
cerster fiahermon.with all the gravity
which tlio transparent disingenuous-
ness of the pretence permitted, instead of benefiting its ingenious
authors, only served to exasperate
the Canadian authorities and to
provoke the enforcement of a scr
vice system of espionage ovor the
movements of all American fishing
vessels, As a consequence armed
British cruisers patrolled the fishing
gjounds, many of our vessels were
seized and held for alleged infractions
both of the terms of the treaty and of
the custom laws, congress worked
itself up to the white stage of patriotic heat and passed the Retaliation Act, and lustly political part-
riots bellowed war from the rostrum,
but tbe coolness and common sense
ot  Preeidont  Cleveland   gave   iho
fermenting elements time to settle
down and afforded an opportunity
for the British Government to discover the danger of its do nothing
polioy and to reach the resolution
which is expressed by the appointment of Mr. Chamberlain as the
head of the English branch:of a
commission, which is to thoroughly
investigate the whole subject of. our
relations with Canada and establish
them on a basis consistent with the
rights and duties of both parties
and in conformity with the princip
les which should govern the intercourse of civilized nations."

Miller, who has been head gardener at
Graystone for 3 years has disappeared
with about 1130,000 belonging to the
Tilden estate. He had full charge of
the money received from tho sale of
vegetables and other produce of the
place, and instead of turning the
money over to the executors it is
claimed he put it in his pooket and
decamped with his family.
THE RIOHT KIND OF IIIRL.
Detroit, Sept. 16.—An attempt was
made yesterday to burglarise the house
ol Cbss. McGrath, a wealthy farmer
near here. The family hsd gone visiting, and Myrtir Richards, the hired
girl, was alone in tho houso. About
noon a man pushed hinrrirlf into the
house and began ransacking the place,
where he found 830,000. Miss Rioh-
erds seised a pitch fork near by and
struck him on the head with the fork
handle and demanded the money.
The thief mode a rush for her when
she reversed the fork and brought him
up short with the tines pushed through
his clothing in the vioinity of his heart.
He made one or two more attempts to
break away but Miss Richards now declared she would run him through if
he failed to give up the money, and ho
dropped il and fled.

TltUEIDLE RAILWAY AirOIDKMT.
London, Sept. 16.—An accident on
the Midland railway to-day occurred
at Hoxtyroi), ono mile south ot Don-
caster. Twonty-throo iiersons were
killed, and over sixty injured. The
excursion train consisted ot eleven
third-class carriages, carrying a thousand passengers. It had halted at tbe
platform and tho guards were taking
ticket., when a loud whistlo was heard
above tho din, and, to the horror of all,
the Liverpool train was scon rushing
around the curve. In an instant, as
it seemed, it dashed into the rear of
the excursion train. As soon as the
crowd collected their wits, the uninjured set to work getting out the dead
and wounded. The groans and shrieks
nt the injured wore   pitiful,  many
being wedged so tightly in the debris
that it was with great difficulty they
were released. Many of the dead
were badly mutilated, legs and arms,
and in one case the head, were missing, the decapitation being performed
as cleanly as if by an axe. There
were somo marvellous escapes. A
baby, 8 months old, was found alive
and uninjured in the arms of its nnrse.
The headless trunk of a man was
found sitting upright in tho wreck.
Mr. H. McCaw, Custom House, Toronto, writes: "My wife was troubled with
Dyspepsia and Rheumatism for along
time: she tried many different medicines, but did not get any relief until she
used Northrop & Lyman's Vegetable
Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure. She has
taken two bottles of it, and now finds
herself in better health than She has been
tor yean."
IBIS MOaSISfi'S DESPATCHES.
CUBAN PATRIOTS.
New York, Sept. 17.—Advices from
Key West this morning deny the'
death of Berribin, leader of the Cuban filibustering expedition. Advices
report an encounter on Sunday between filibusters numbering 150 and
500 troops sent against them. The
troops were held at bay for a long
time and the filibusters all escaped
after killing 13 soldiers. Berribin
states that friends of the cause in
Cuba are flocking to his standard.
CANADIAN SEALERS TO BE RELEASED.
Ottawa, Sept. 17.—In reference to
the Behring Sea seizures of lost season-
it is alleged here to-day that the
trouble has occurred through the ignorance of the American authorities at
Sitka. It appears that Secretary Bayard, on receipt of the report from bis
officers at Sitka stating the grounds on
which -the Canadian vessels bad been
seized, at once telegraphed, ordering
the restoration of vessels and skins to
their owners, and he also informed the
minister at Washington of his having
done so. The magistrate at Sitka, on
receipt of the telegram from Secretary
Bayard, ordered his Marshal to carry
out the instructions, but before it was
effected he withdrew his order on the
alleged ground that the telegram might
not be authentic. He denies having
received any further instructions from
Washington, and refused to act on
Bayard's telegram. It is understood

THE CONDEMNED ANARCHISTS.
Chicaoo, Sept 17.—The condemned
anarchists held a consultation among
themselves last night over their case.
Two questions came up, first, whether
thoy shall appeal to the supreme oourt
of the V. S.j second, the preparation
of a petition for executive clemency.
The last measure was voted against
unanimously, on the ground that they
had done nothing for which to ask pardon, and it was decided to appeal to
the supreme court.
O'UBIB.V IN JAIL.
" Dublin, Sept 17.—William O'Brien
is in the best of health in Cork jail.
When he is tried and regularly sentenced to undergo ignominious convict
life, as he is suro to be, he will appeal, '
' This will delay the issue of the case a N
couple of months longer. O'Brien Is
determined to mark his sense of the
difference between the political prisoner and tho common criminal. He
will submit to extra punishment in
dark cells on bread and water sooner
than perform any of their venal labor
or degrading duties. This will raise
an agitation such as that whioh Gladstone in his earlier days aroused against
King Ferdinand's treatment of his
political prisoners.
ANOTHER RAILWAY ACCIDENT.
El Paso, Texas, Sept 17.—The
nortli bound freight train on the Mexican Central ran into a sand .bank
washed out by rains last night; 40 cars
and two engines were derailed, Engineer Cook was killed, and Engineer
Lovegrovc nnd Brakoman Smith seriously injured,

New York, Sept 17. — Henry
Geoige and Dr. McOlynn, it is reported, intend to start a daily in'each of the
large cities in tlie interest of working-
men. George thinks that by a system
of co-operation die papers can be made
successful and contain all news without
the aid of press associations. '
People who reside or sojourn in regions of country where fever snd ague
and bilious remittent fever are prevalent,
should be particularly careful to regulate
digestion, the liver ud the bowels, beforo the approach of the season for the
periodic malady. The timely use of
Northrop b Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure Is a valuable
safeguard against ths malarial scourge.
It is acknowledged to be the best blood

Snlurday Evening, Sepl. il,
When tho facts come to be known
the true inwardness o£ the late
rebellion among the Utes makes a
vory bad showing for the whites.
It seems thnt the cowboys were
responsible for tho whole trouble
which at one timo threatened to
become an extensive Indian war
with tho usual bloody consequences.
These people had been robbing
the Indians of their horses and
their stock, nnd treating them
with every sort of indignity,
and the savages made up their
minds to resent these things and
defend themselves and their property
by force of arms. It was publicly
stated that tbe people were anxious
to get rid of the Indians, and it has
been too much a custom among
Americans to consider less the
means adopted for the removal of
the natives than the object contemplated. They do not always find
the Indians meekly acquiescing in
their plans of spoliation, however,
hut they sep.m willing often to take
the risks involved in a policy of
forcible extermination. The federal
government evidently suspected that
there was something of this sort at
the bottom of the Ute trouble, and
refused to furnish federal troops for
the purpose of shooting off these
people. When the circumstances
had come to the surface, it became
manifest that the Indians had a
real grievonce, and they were per-
.' mitted to go peaceably to their re
serves, after having at least part of
their stolen property restored to
them.
From some remarks made by the
chief justice of Manitoba during
the hearing of the Browning injunction case it is inferred that the injunction wilt be dissolved. But,
contrary to expectation, the Dominion government has taken a hand
in the injunction fight, The minister of justice, has applied for an
injunction to restrain the Bed River
Valley Railway from going through
certain lands the title of which, it
is claimed, is vested in the crown as
represented by the Dominion government. The failure of the Browning injunction, therefore, will be
followed by tho pushing of the federal injunction, and in the multitude of injunctions it is not improbable the road so pluckily built may
be condemned to remain inoperative
for the present at least. The action
of the federal government has created intense feeling in Manitoba,
and some reckless threats are being
indulged in. It is claimed, bow-
ever, that the resources of the railway people have not yet been exhausted. It is hinted that if money
cannot be obtained on the present
bonds, the; legislature may be called
together for such legislation as may
bo necessary to secure the issue of
valid bondB. It has been demonstrated thnt a provincial act stands
as law from the time it receives the
assent of the lieutenant-governor
until it has been vetoed, and all
things done under the act during
that time will stand. The scheme
suggested by some is to obtain a
special meeting of the legislature,
pass the necessary act, issue the
necessary bonds and have the whole
thing completed before the veto
power can be exercised.
Our local ootemporary this morning spends half a column in evading
the point raised by its sub-editor on
Wednesday respecting tlie munikins
lately placed in the city schools of
this province. Tho sub-editor's ob-
. jection to this very useful adjunct to
practical education was its immodesty. Mr. Kelly, to whose modesty
overy one who knowB him will testify, denonunced the manikin because it shocked his propriety, but
the editor denounces it for the sole
reason, apparently, that it has been
placed in the schools by Hon. Jno.
Robson, the minister of education,
whom he so cordially hates. But
the general public, we feel sure,
will have no sympathy with the objections raised by either of these
persons. In proof of this we have
in the Colonist and the Times very
compliuentry notices of the Victoria manikin. The Colonist says:
"Eminent authorities declare that a
more accurate and perfect piece of
apparatus for the purpose intended
could not be devised. Tho introduction of this chart * * * will prove
of the greatest assistance to teachers, as it will enable them to ex
plain the subject more intelligently
and the pupils to grasp it." The
Times, which no one will suspect of
a desire to shield the minister of
education if he deserved censure,
says: "Unquestionably it is as far
in advance of the old antiquated
idea of having plates hung on the
walls of our school rooms as is the
globe over the hanging map, They
will be found to be a valuable aid
to our teachers, and if our young
people grow up without fully knowing themselves the fault will be
their own, not that of the educational system." We may add that
the Qudmian is the only newspaper
in British Columbia that, has expressed disapproval of these manikins, and it) opinion is so conspicuously tho result of personal venom
that it ii worth nothing.

By What Right Does the Saloon
Exist?
The saloon system can plead no
constitutional guaranty. Even the
absurd and oft repeated eloini of "personal liberty," put forth by the liquor
drinker does not apply to the seller.
If we admit the right to commit suicide, it does not prove the right to
commit murder. If I have the right
to destroy my usefulness and my life,
by strong drink or poisonous drugs, it
does not follow that you havo tho
right to soil them to me, knowing the
use 1 will make of them.
Nor can tlie saloon baso its right to
exist on any claim of usefulness. It
is not a legitimate branch of trade,
supplying a natural and healthful demand, but, as we have already Been,
an active, tireless agency in the creation of un unnatural demand for that
which is only pernicious in its effects.
If its dreary pathwoy of vice be illumined by one good deed done for
country or for humanity, it has uot
yet been reported. If it has ouo redeeming virtue to olfsett against an
unbroken monotony of wickedness, it
has been most successfully concealed.
Its character, purpose, and history declare it to bo a proper Bubject for political outlawry, without titlo to sympathy, or tho right to bo.
If society has tho right of self-protection against unjust taxation it most
assuredly may protect itself against
the unequalled burden imposed by tho
liquor traffic. If tho right exists to guard
the community against crime, corruption or tho spread of contagious disease,
for a much stronger reason it exists
against tho saloon, which is tho known
cause of more crime, corruption, disease and death than any other agency.
Tho only honest ground on which
the saloon system can claim the right
to be, is the right of the individual to
get money regardleBs of tho consequences to society. And for the same
reason that we punish criminals who
put that principle into practice, we
have the right to abolish the saloon.—
Bon. Wm. IVindom.
A Few Figures.
During the test ten years, snys tlio
New York E_rcss in speaking of the
United States liquor traffic, there havo
been expended for liquor an average
of $850,000,000 annually, without conferring a single physical, mental, social,
or moral benefit upon the drinkers or
society. It has added $50,000,000 a
year to the cost of pauperism and
crime, or $500,000,000 in the ten years.
The loss of time and industry in making and selling liquor is u clear waste
and burden upon productive labor. The
loss of timo and industry of the drunkards nnd tipplers average annually
$000,000,000 during the ten years.
The destruction of grain and other
products amounts to $40,000,000 annually, or $40,000,000 for the ten
years. The destruction of property by
crime or carelessness of drinking, or
drunken men, has amounted to fully
$6,000,00O,0CD for the ten years.
This makes an aggregate loss and waste
due to this cause for the ten years of
$21,000,000,010, or a sum greater than
the assessed valuation of all the real
and personal property of the United
States in 1880.

Significant.
A vory significant sign of the times
is the emphatic condemnation of beer
which has recently come to ns from a
distinguished German professor—Professor Bnnge, of the university of
Basle. He says: "People are horrified if a man is made into a thief or a
murderer by brandy-drinking; but they
are completely cold and indifferent to
tbe fact that thousands becomo stupefied, imbecile, and ragged by beer-
drinking. That does not stall disturb
our Philistine in his selfish complacency." He adds, speaking of Germany and Switzerland: "Beeris really the most mischievous among alcoholic beverages, for the very reason
that no other is so seductive. Brandy-
drinking is a disgrace in all classes of
society; the intellectual elite af our
nation glory in their Immoderate beer-
drinking." To havo beer thus denounced, from the Germsn point of
view, and by a learned professor so
eminently well qualified as a distinguished soientist to speak intelligently, as " the most mischievous among
alcoholic beverages," is indeed very
refreshing!

Ok tub twelve young men who recently graduated at Oberlin Theological Seminary, two will seek foreign fields of labor,
Itev. C. A. Clark going to Japan, and
Professor King, of Oberlin College, to
South Natal, Africa,
A VEXKUAW.E saint who could scarcely wtlik by reason of bodily infirmity, was
in the habit of repeating these words:
"Let us thank God for our mercies, and
make as little as possible of our ills. God
is alike good in both."
The theology that burns and glows
in Christian poetry iB the theology of tho
heart. It may not be as accurate and
technical as that ofthe formulated creed,
but for Uie purposes of devotion and
spiritual comfort, it is a thousand times
better.
As the Dead sea drinks in tho river
Jordan and is never the sweeter, and the
ocean all other rivers and is never tho
fresher, so we are apt to receive doily
mercies from God, ana still remain insensible to them, unthankful ior them.—
Bishop Reynolds.
If one wishes to know what he shall
read for the purpose of devotion and spiritual culture, then noxt to the Bible, wo
recommend him to read Jay's "Morning
mid Kvening Exercises." VVo know of
uoAvriter in any language that will bettor
serve his purpose.
Is the Pope more liberal than his
Church? He sent Queen Victoria, by
envoy, his congratulations and a present.
But many peers and other prominent
Catholic laymen, subjects of the Queen,
refused to accept tickets of invitation to
the Jubilee ceremonies.
Scons it though men do, Evangelical
truth iB still "God's power unto salvation." And this is the surprising thing,
Evangelical truth is as attractive upon
the masses of mankind as it ever was.
Send forth two men into any populous
district, let the one carry the modern
Gospel of Science, let the other take the
old Gospel of the blessed God our Saviour;
and from John O'Groat's house to Land's
End, ..only one result will follow. The
modern man, who tells of culture, will
talk to ii hesitating few; and tho man
who tells of a Divine saviour, will proclaim glad tidings to a crowding mass.
To us that unquestionable fact is search-
iugly significant.
• The iiecently hold General Synod of
the Lutheran Church considesed the
declaration in regard to organic unity
made last October by the Episcopal House
of Bishops, and formally declared that a*
present such unity is "neither desirable
nor practicable." Tho Southern Presbyterian Chinch, on tho other hand, rejoices In tho action of tho Episcopal
liislwiw, "But," it says, as the Commission nn Christum Unity does not make
its report until the General Convention
of I ssi i, the present General Assembly
contents itself with this expression of
Christian sympathy, and postpones further action until the Assembly of 1883."
"If Faith Looka Up lo Thee."
Tlio Advance relates tho circumstances
under which Dr. Ray Palmer wrote tho
beautiful hymn, "My faith looks up to
Thee" :-
"The hymn by which Dr. Palmer is
most widely known, 'My faith looks up to
Thee,' was composed when he was
twenty-two j-ears of age, the year of his
graduation. In a collection ot his poems
published in 1870, he has given the circumstances of its origin. It had, he says,
no external occasion whatever. Having
been accustomed almost from childhood
to the occasional expression of what, his
heart felt in the form of verso, it was, ho
Bays, in accordance with this habit, and
in an hour when Christ in the riches of
His grace and love Waa so vividly apprehended as to fill the soul with deep emotion, that the hymn was composed.
'There was not the slightest thought of
writing for any othor eye, least of all of
writing a hymn for Christian worship.
Away from outward excitement in the
quiet of his chamber, and with a deep
consciousness of hia own need), the writer
transferred as faithfully us he could to
paper, what at the time waa passing within him. It is well remembered he adds,
that when writing the last line, a 'ransomed soul,' the thought that the whole
work of redemption and salvation was
unfolded in thoso words, and so suggested
a theme of eternal praise as moved the
writer to a degree of emotion which
brought abundantteara.' ltwas a yoar
or so after this, when no ono had, bo far
4is he knew, ever seen the hymn, that
Dr. Lowell Mason met the author in the
street In Boston and asked him to furnish
sono hymns for n hymn and tune book
which lie was about to publish. Happening to have the little manuscript book
containing tlie hymn In his pocket, they
stepped into a store together, and a copy
was mode and given to Dr. Mason. On
reaching home and looking it over, Dr.
Mason became so much Interested in it
that he Immediately composed for It the
tunc, Uliect, to which it has almost universally been sung. Two or three days
after, mooting tlie writer of it he exclaimed, 'Mr. Palmer, 'you may live many
years, und do many good things; but I
think you will he best known to posterity
as the author of "My faith looks up to
Thoc."'
A bright little woman recently gave
her fonetful husband the following letter, with instructions that It should not
be opened until ho got to his place of
business: "I am forced to tell you something that I know will trouble you, but it
la my duty to do bo. I um determined
you shall know it, let the result be what
it may. I have known for a week that
this trial was coming, but kept it to myself until to-dny, when It has reached a
crisis/and I cannot koep It any longer.
You must not censure me too harshly,
lor you must roup tho result as well us
myself. I do hopo it won't crush you."
Here he turned over tho noxt page, his
hair slowly rising.   "Iho flour Is out:
{dense send mo aome this afternoon, I
bought that by this method you would
not forget it." The husband telegraphed
forthwith for a barrel of tho best flour in
the market to be sent to his home tn-
ttanter.

a score of G3 to its credit, divided as
follows:   Green 5, Rand 1, Leonard 0,
Nelson 14, Bock 15, Pronter 0,   Ran-

Driving Away the Fish.
Last night the principal catch of
salmon wns sockeyes, n fish that heretofore wero fluppoted to finish running
by the 10th of August at the latest.
The sockeyes are arriving in vory bad
condition, and in nearly ovory oato are
ready to spawn, but up to the prosont
have not been able to pass the mouth
of the river owing to the 400 or 500
nets that have been kept there nil
summer. Old fishermen are all of tho
opinion that unless the mouth of the
river is left free tho salmon will find
other spawning grounds, and it iB already reported on good authority that
tho sockeyes are depositing eggs in the
streams running into into Howe Sound
and Burrard Inlet. If such turns out
to bo the case, nnd it soems veryprob-
ablo, the cannors along the Fraser
will merely bo repeating tho history
of "killing the goose that laid the
golden eggs." If the fish aro debarred
from getting up stream to dopotit thoir
eggs it is not reasonable to expect the
Fraser fisheries will be lasting, and the
fate that has befallen tho Sacremento
and Columbia Rivors will soon fall to
the Fraser. Thero is some talk of
making representations to the department of merino and fisheries n't Ottawa on this subject, and there is no
doubt, if the matter is properly laid
before the minister, something will be
dono to correct this great evil.
Geo. Dorlgc, si-., a well-known citizen
of Emporium, writes that ono of his men
(Sam Lewis) whilst working in the woods
so soveroly sprained his ankle that ho
could scarcely get. homo, bnt after one or
two applications of Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil he was able to go to work next
day.
The Nrst Move.
Last evening a number of our most
pruiiiiiient citizens met at tho Club for
the purpose of Inkiug tho preliminary
steps towards organizing a fruit growers association. Everyone present was
enthusiastic over tbe proposed soheme,
which speaks woll for its consummation and ultimate success. After considerable discussion on fruit growing
generally it wat moved and seconded
that the association bo called the
"British Columbia Fruit Growers
Association." It was further resolved
tbat the following gentlemen bo appointed a committee to further the ob-
i'ects of the association: Messrs. W, H.
radnor, M.P.P., James Orr, M.P.P.,
J. Reeco, Smithers, and D. Jones.
Tho duty of onnvaasing for members
was allotted to Mayor Dickinson, Oapt
Bonson, Dr. Trow, and Rov. Thos.
Haddon. It was moved and seconded
that Messrs. Figg, Spenco, and Bovill
be a committee to furnish necessary in.
formation to the press and to draft a
prospectus for approval at the next
meeting. After other matters of importance had been transacted the
meeting adjourned until Friday, Sept.
29th, at the Farmers' Homo. It was
considered best to hold the next meeting on the day mentioned as it would
give farmers and others,returning from
the exhibition at Chilliwhack, a chance
to be present and expound their views
on the Bubject. Everyone, interested
in fruit growing iB invited to attend
tliia meeting whether for the purpose
of becoming members or not.
Attempted Suicide.
Thomas Walsh altciupts to lake bit lire
by Calling his Tnroal.
About 8 o'clock this morning Thomas
Walsh, who has been a resident of tho
city for many years, made an attoinpt
to take his life by cutting his throat.
The instruments used were two knives,
one a table, and the othor a carving
knife, tho former being too dull to out,
tho carving knife, which was sharp,
wns brought into use and the cut inflicted with it. The family were in
bed at the time and it was at least a
couple of hours after the deed was
commiltod boforo the discovery was
made. When Mis. Walsh got up aud
went to tho kitchen she was turprited
to see the knives lying on the tablo
covered with blood, the next tiling
that attracted her attention was the
door knob which was also covered with
blood, nnd tracos of blood about the
room. Her suspicions being aroused
she wont to the bedroom where
Walsh sleeps and found him lying on
the bed covered with blood. Senator
Mclnnes & Dr. Trew were immediately summoned and found on arrival
that the wound was not dangerous as
.only the skin had been cut and the
arteries and windpipe had escaped all
injury. The cut was sowed up and
bandaged and tho wounded man is
now progressing ss favorably as oould
be expected. Walsh has been drinking very heavily of lute and it is supposed tho deed was prompted by despondency, which often follows a long
term of excessive ubo of spirits. No
other cauBO is given for tho rash act as
he has made no statement himself. He
was removed to the hospital during the
afternoon where every attention will
be given him.
