London, Juno 26;—The queen's
party on Tuesday was uuprocodent-
ly raagililiirout. It consisted entirely
of kings, queens, princes utul priii-
cosses of the European ruya] families who nre guests of her majesty.
The Queen of Hawaii, Princo Kom-
utsu of .Inpun, and nil the Indian
princes were excluded, as they are
to be entertained sepurntely in a day
or two at Windsor. The Indian
princes have hud tho good sense to
wear their national drcssos, and
these are most artistic and enriched
with priceless jewels. Their cor-
duct, however, is sometimes rath'
extraordinary. For instance, ono of
them is the terror of all the waiters
ut the hotel where lie resides, for ho
very facetiously obliges his attend-
nuts to linish all that is loft on the
table after each meal, and to the
evident delight of his highness, the
poor fellows are rendered ill by overeating of pats of butter and suoh
like bilious articles. The plate,
which had been sent from Windsor
for the state dinner
AT BUOIUNOItAM PALACE
on the rjlst, was, says a correspondent, glorious, and at dessert the
Queen used for tho first time the
service presented to her by the King
of Saxony. It is of "patcjaum"
with flowers in the middle, and is
valued at .£8,000. Gold and silver
vases filled with exotics, and forty-
two enormous cundelebra, containing
over seven hundred candles, illuminated the table. The Queen sat in
the centre, and wus dressed in black
satin, covered with Maltese lace.
She wore' her usual widow's cap,
with many diamonds on it, and star
and ribbon of the Garter, with all
Iter other orders. Her hands wore
literally laden with priceless rings.
She had the King of the Belgians
on her right nnd the King of Denmark on her left, and with them
chatted throughout the banquet.
The Queen of the Belgians sat next
to the King of Denmark, having
on her right the King of Greece.
Then came tho Crown Princess of
Germany, who is certainly the
plainest of the English royal family
nnd who wore
A MARVELLOUS   NECKLACE
of pearls, somo of which wero the
size of u pigcon's~egg. The Princess
of Wales wore the jewels presented
to hor hy the city of London at her
marriage. Tho rubies and diamonds
worn hy tho Duchess of Edinburgh
are valued at a quarter of a million
sterling. Tho Crown Princess of
Portugal had on superb emeralds.
Behind each guest was a servant in
scarlet livery with powered hair,
golden epaulets and a court sword,
whilst many gentlemen-in-waiting
in full court attire were grouped
around the table. The band of the
Corps of Royal Engineers performed
a selection of music during the dinner. When thoy played the "Blue
Danube" waltz the Queen sent a
messenger to the Crown Prince of
Austria and smiled graciously at
him, evidently wishing him to understand that sho had selected this air
in honor of Austria.
REMARKABLE ENTERTAINMENTS.
On Wednesday night London was
alive with carriages. All the royalists wont to the foreign office,
where Lady Salisbury did the hon
ors. Tho Princess of Wales looked
lovely in gray satin, with pink tulle
glittering with silver llama. She
wore superb diamonds, and was certainly the best dressed woman present unless tho Crown Princess of
Portugal is excepted. The Queen
of the Belgians was in deep blue
velvet, and wore beautiful pearls.
There were nearly 1,500 guests, including the Hawaiian Queen, who
wore her famous sky-blue velvet
garments, lt was a bright scene.
Later on in the evening the Prince
of Wales went to the Austrian
colony ball at the Jletropolc, whither
the Crown Princo Rudolph of Austria had preceded him, as well as
the King of Saxony, This was
another success.
THE COTILLION OF HONOR
was danced by the Crown Princo of
Austria, in his whito uniform with
the beautiful Countess do Grey, formerly Lady Lonsdale, who was exquisitely dressod in gold brocade,
with a train of white corded silk.
Sho looked vory handsome, as did
also the Countess Karolyi, the Austrian ambassadress, who woro nn
enormous moon-shaped tiara of diamonds. Princess Galitzine, who
talked a good deal with the Prinee
of Wales, was in whito gauze, tho
wholo front of her dress being covered with diamonds. The Princo
dunned with the Countess Karolyi.
Ho was heard to say as ho stood
under the decorated portrait of the
Emperor of Austria, at the foot of
whioh wus a very good bust of the
Queen:
"WIIY THEHF.V MOTHER,"
tt I'i'iiiark which made theOountess
de Grey Inugh. All the English
royalties dunce well and nrepussion-
ately fond of this exercise. The
Prince of Wales is 11 very good
waltzer. Thero wero a number of
Hungarian and Austrian noblemen
at this ball in their national costumes. The Prince of Walos, out
of compliment to the Crown Prince,
wore his Austrian hussnr uniform.
The Crown Prince, of Austria was
the lirst of the royal guests to leave
London. Aftor Monday most of
them who choose to remain will do
so at their own expense. Some
hnve arranged matters admirably by
billeting themselves on their various
embassies. '^-i-,.
LADY ItOSERERY's ItALL.
A grand entertainment was given
on Thursday evening, at request of
the Prince of Wales, by Lord and
Lady Rbsebery at Lansdowne House
in honor of tho visiting royalties.
By desire of the prince, knee-
breeches, black silk stockings and
buckle shoes were worn hy the gentlemen invited. Tho invitation list
was small, and included some well-
known Americans, among whom
were Minister Phelps, Lady Mande-
ville, Lady Randolph Churchill and
Mr. Blaine. The rooms were exquisitely decorated, and the affair
was a great success. The Prince
and Princess of Wales, with the
visiting royalties, were all present.

ALL HOl'K A11AXOONE1).
Virginia, Nev., July 4.—All hope
of rescuing the imprisoned miners
alive is abandoned, The compressor
air pipe was found fractured at a point
90 feet below the 1300 foot level. It
is supposed thoy have been buried since
the first night of the tire by the caving
mass of ruck and timber. The air
compressor, which has been kept run
ning at the highest possible speed since
tlie niu'ht of the tire, stopped this
morning. Efforts to break through
into Best it Belcher's drift "will not be
attempted. Tt is now thought that
tho point of connection has been
passed in sinking and the twelve foot
drills aro being sent out in every direction to probe the ground.
SAD ACCIDENT.

Three brothers named Moffett, aged
12,15, and 17 years, were drowned today while bathing in Burnt River.

Seattle, W. T., July 4,-Tlio day
passed oft' nicely. The parade, taking
place at 11 a. in., was composed of
representatives of all the trades of tho
city. An address at the univorsity
grounds, given by Hon. John R. Kin-
near, was well received. Tho fire
works in the evening closed the day's
programme. The utmost good order
prevailed and, notwithstanding a great
many peoplo wont to Tacoma, the
town was crowded. The game of
baseball played at the race track this
aftornoon between Portland and Seattle nines resulted in a victory for the
Portland's by a score of!) to 7, a tenth
inning being necessary to decide the
game. Tho day has been a perfect
one, only ono accident occurred from
tho use of tiro-works, and that is not
serious.

that England would grant no postponement of tho signing of the convention by Turkey beyond to-day.
AN INDIAN  LOAN.
Simla, July 5.—Tho Indian govern- j
ment will issue 4 per cent, bonds for
a loan of two million pounds.
KUOM THE FAR EAST.
London, July 5.—Advices from Ca-
bul say that the Ameer is suspecting
the fidelity of .Tanishedies, near
Herat, owing to the visits of the Russian embassy. The Khan threatens to
execute him unless his tribe send to
Cabul somo of thoir chiefs as hostages.
A number of the head men of Janisho-
dics havo gone over to the Russians.
The forts at Herat have been repaired
and the crops around the city harvested.
NO BREACH OF FAITH.
London,  July   C—"Balfour,  chief

From Lulu Island.
(Correspondence of tbe Columbian.)
Tlie people on this side of the island .
havo asked for a school, and a district
has been laid off. Trustees were
elected at the annual meeting, and
parents are anxious that a building
should be ready so that a school may
open at the beginning of next term.
The roads are not nt for small children
to travel on in the rainy season, and
it is very desirable that they should
have the benefit of the time they are
good. Visitors from other parts are
delighted with the island. The North
Arm is also worthy of a visit from any
one who admires a farming country,
Grass is looking well and promises an
abundant crop where it has not been
pasturee too late. We saw rye on
Mr. M. Steve's farm that measured
six feet ten inches on the 24th June.
Moncton Times please note this and tell

and we will try again.

ENCOURAGING PROSPECTS OF THE MIKES, ETC.
MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS.
(From the SenUncl.)
Several mining claims have recently
been taken up on Mission Creek, and
the prospects are said to be of the
most encouraging character. Many
men have quit work at the adjoining
ranches and gone to the mines.
The Thompson river has fallen
about 8 feet during the week, and is
still subsiding* It is hoped that the
inconvenience of high water is now
over for the season, as the bulk of the
snow his melted from the mountains
at the head waters of both branches of
the river.
A sad accident happened to Mr.
Walter Humfrey, of Grand Prairie,
on Thursday last, whereby he had his
leg so badly crushed that he was
brought to the Royal Inland Hospital
the same evening for treatment. It
appears that Mr. Humfrey nad hitched
hiB horse to a log at Duck's corral;
and the horse in pulling the log rolled
it over upon Mr. H.'s limb.
lllecillewaet has evidently a golden
future before it. Mr. G. B. Wright
has in the neighborhood of 60 men
working in his mines at that place,
and it is said they are striking it rich.
Mr. Wright has introduced some of
the most modern and effective machinery, aud ore-cruBing operations will be
commenced in a few days. The mines
are rich in gold, silver and grey copper. It is said that $1,500 to the ton
has been assayed. Tlie formation is
mostly slate and the ledges well defined. Wood, water, and transportation are all at baud, and there is little
doubt that the mines will pan out
well.
CORRESPONDENCE.
Suggestions to Fishermen.
Editor Ooixmman, —Through the columns of your journal I would call the attention of all cannery owners and managers to a scheme which has been devised
for the protection of the nets of fishermen
ou the Fraser, uinl which, if adopted,
will be a great saving to cannerymenand
convenience to steamers navigating the
rivur during the llshing season. I would
suggest that ouo buoy, used by sll boats
when drifting, be painted a bright red
and that all nets be so laid out that the
red liiioy would be always on the southern extremity of the net or port shore
going dowu the river. With such a rule
(trhichean be easily imparted to the .Siwash fishermen), the position of a net can
easily he determined by an approaching
stuaiuer and consequently steered clear
of. Under the present aystem it is very
dilli.'iilt at times to Ml from a steamer
how a net is laid and a great many are
run over and damage Is done which could
be avoided if this or some other system,
seucrally recognised and adhered to,
were adopted. I think that cannery-
men should combine and come to some
understanding on this point arid advertise tt to alt mariners, the result of which
would be a great saving to them and convenience to craft on tho river.

On its Own Bottom.
The remarkable growth of Van-
oouvec hns been a source of wonder
to many people. In less than two
years it has grown from a village of
300 inhabitants to a city of 3,000.
It possesses many fine substantial
buildings, extensive wharves, miles
of streets paved with three inch
plank, and presents evidences of
much enterprise and pluck on the
part of its inhabitants. Vancouver
is, however, emphatically a railway
city, and as such, there is about
it an artificial air. If the railway
had not gone down Burrard Inlet,
Vancouver would still have beon
unheard of, and beside the placid
waters of Coal Harbor would still
be standing the placid village of
Granville. The new city was not,
therefore, a natural growth, but was
forced into existence by the railway
and inflated by real estate boomers.
It has been called a city of saloons
and real estate agents. Of the
former there are, we believe, no less
than 52. It was expected that the
commissioners this year would out
off about 11 of these; but when the
time came the commissioners seem
to have weakened and it is probable
the whole batch of licenses will be
granted. The subterfuges resorted
to by some saloon keepers who had
not the accommodation required by
the regulations are amusing, and
the commissioners must have shut
their eyes and "gone blind" when
they suffered themselves to be im
posed upon by such stratagems.
We are not certain as to the number of real estate agents, but it cannot be much loss than the others,
and neither of these classes produces
anything by which tho city can be
benefitted or enriched. They are
both equally interested, however,
in booming the place for all it is
worth. A few days ago wo pointed
out some of the peculiar features of
this new city, and noted tho fact
that beyond the benefits it would
derive from railway patronage
(which will be very large) it has
scarcely any natural resources, and
that very soon it would have to
stand upon its own bottom and be
measured by what it is and not by
what it might be. The Vancouver
iVeios of Sunday contains a carefully
written article dealing with the
present condition and prospects of
the place which confirms the opinion that this time is not far off. It
was the expectation of everybody
that as soon as the railway was
opened for regular traffic down to
Vancouver, and when the transpacific steamship line had been actually established, there would be a
very perceptible increase in renl
estate transactions, and an impetus
would be given to every kind of
business. This expectation has
not been realized. Real estate men
report quietness instead of activity,
and the amount of general business
throughout the city has not responded to the sanguine expectations of
the citizens. The News says it is
easy to talk of undeveloped resources and the immense traffic that is
coming through the terminal city;
but this talk doesn't pay one's bills
or fill an empty stomach. Proceeding, the News remarks: "When a
year ago one discussed the line of
ocean steamers from here it was
often replied that at the same time
we should see an immense advance
in the price of real estate, and a
very great improvement in everything. Yet we do not think this
has come to pass. The numerous
improvements which have been
made have given employment to a
large number of men, and their
wants have had to be supplied. But
this will end at some time, and then
we shall begin to think it would
have been very satisfactory could
we have found some permanent
employment for them, so as to keep
them here." Our cotemporary
comes to the sensible conclusion
that the railway traffic and the
shipping will be unequal to the
building and maintenance of a great
city, and that the people themselves
must give proof of their claim to
success by establishing reproductive
industries of a permanent character.
The same remark applies to Westminster, Here we have resources
partially developed and natural advantages which Vanoonver has not,
but if our citizens think tome unfor-
seen force is going to carry them
forward to the goal of their ambition without effort on their part,
they are going to be left. Westminster is in no sense a boom town.
Her growth has been gradual, and
she is the result of a legitimate
and natural business demand. It is
not to transient traffic she looks for
the means of existence so much as
to the more secure and certain trade
of the river (whioh means the agricultural trade) and the benefits of
manufacturing industries. But if
Westminster lacks the energy and
common sense necessary to harvest
the legitimate fruits of her opportunities, there is nothing for her
but disappointment. She, too,
must rely upon her own resources

What Physicians Say About the

"Treatment by Absorption has (or some

ilwmlillir     Ti Hi PEARSON' LOST AT THE MILL
In the beautiful district of Fannet.
on the coast of Donegal, near Lough
.Swilly—theLako of Shadows—lived two
poor families, celebrated far and wide as
tho best neighbors ever known or
heard of.
If Martin wanted a hand with his
harvest Donnelly was ready to give it
and ask no wages, and the kindness wan
returned when the potato digging came
on. Their wives also lived in tho greatest harmony, and thoy wero such closo
neighbors that thoy met continually, for
ono roof covered tho two houses.
This long cabin, or rather range of
cabins, stood on tho banks of Mulroy,
an inlet of tho Atlantic, bo landlocked as
to look like a lake. Behind towered gigantic heather-crowned mountains; in
front lay tho high road lending from tho
sea to Mllford, the nourcst market
town, a winding road, hard snd whito
from limestone, now dipping down into
n valley, now mounting up a sharp hill,
and always keeping elose to the blue
waters of Mulroy, divided from it by a
shelving bank festooned with woodbine.
Mulroy was studded with many islands
—islands sacred to tho "woo folks;"
Islands In possession of the sen. birds;
islands whoro sleepy broad-browod seals
basked on warm evonlngs.
Beyond Mulroy rose uioro mountains,
Iho nearer hills cultivated to their summits, tho more distant so pale and indistinct that thoy wero liko Bmoko-
colored   phantoms against   tho   sky.
Errlgnl, a cono-shnped mountain, tho
last point of Irish earth seen by tho
emigrants as they sailed to America,
and Muoklsh, tho pig's back, wore most
prominent In the range.
Tlio Martins and Donnollys did not
know that they wero looking at ono of ■
Ihe loveliest landscapes In tho world.
They thought Mulroy a wild, desolato
place.
Sometimes the deep silence ol the
phico was broken by the keening ot
mourners or the chant of priests, and
then tho children in the cabins would
run out to the road, and look up and
down.
A long prooosslon wound from the
eoacoost, and on Its way to yonder burial
ground benoath the 'chapel at tho edgo
of the lolto—a holy spot, marked by a
forest of black wooden crosses. The
priest wulkod first; thou cuine the coffin,
followod by a motloy company—mon in
long gray stockings, knoe breeches and
brogues, mounted on shaggy nonius,
and women seated behind thorn dressed
In homespun and scarlet headgear.
Tho keening woke the mountain
echoes, tho fairy glen throwing buck tho
sound to tho flax mill that stood, gaunt
tuul grim, by the roadside; thon tho
crying and chanting died away and
lloeks of curlew and plovor circling overhead sang a shrill requiem.
Two ot the children were wont to follow tho procession—Teaguo Martin and
Marv Donnelly. .They woro Inseparable,
toddling band in hand"to sohool, hand In
hand to chapel, playing together.liording
the cows together on the knowes. They
would follow the procession together as
far as tlio flax mill, a mllo from their
own doors, and would stay thore to play.
Tho gossips of the country remarked
the tender friendship of tho children,
and foretold that lt would end in mat-
trimony.
Tho first separation ot these llttlo
friends took place whon they wero
thirteen years old, and Teague was hired
by a farmer. Mary moped and trotted
when he was gono, wandering sadly to
the llnx mill, their old play place, and
then wandering back again with her head
hanging down. Butshefound eome consolation in knitting his socks, washing
his clothcs.and carrying the llttlo bundle
to him on Saturday at tho farmhouse.
Things did not turn out as tho neigh-
Inn's expected. Tho friends did not become lovers; thoy remained devoted
friends, but thoy married strangers.
Years went by. Tho old Martins and
Dounellys were "gathered to thoir
fathers," and Mary and hor husband,
nnd Teague and his wife, lived on in tho
old cabin, "under tho roof wl' other,"
and the good neighborhood was the
same as ever, Tlmo passed; they grew
mlddlo aged, then old; the days when
they had played at the flax mill wore
vory far away.
One day Mary was taken very ill—so
111 that tho priest was sent for. She
received the last rites of tho church
nnd then she asked for Teague. Ho
wus at a distance—gone to Mllford with
cnttlo to sell—would not return homo
till late. Mary watched tho door as long
us hor sight lasted.
" Is thero no word of Teague!" was her
constant question. Hie name was tho
last upon her lips.
A woeful man was Teague' whon ho
found his old friend gone. He*walked
liesirlo hor husband after the coffin, und
saw her laid low in tho churchyard mould,
and then be came back to the cabins, the
truest mourner she bad, But work hod
to be dono, though his heart was heavy,
and the next morning ho took his flax to
the mill.
As ho Jogged along tho limestone road
in his cart he was suddonlyawaro of a
llguresoated behind him on tho bundles
of flax. How had sho got thore? Ho
thrilled with terror, and lt was all ho
could do to look round and soo who was
his companion. An old woman? Yos;
and hor red shawl, tho gray hair, tho
features, tho blue eyes, which had never
lost their brightness, all romindod him
of Mary.   He looked closer.
It was Mary certainly, and ho must
conquer his fear and speak to hor for
tho sake ot thoir lifelong friendship.
Must Mary boa restless wanderer because her old comrade failed her? No
—a thousand times no I So, with a
tremendous effort, ho conquered his
droud.
" Mary, darlln', Is lt you?" he faltered.
" It is, Teague, dear; It Is."
"An'what Is it, Mary, that's kccpln'
you frao your rest? Sure you had tho
priest, an' he gave you tho viaticum."
Tho voice he knew so well answored
In accents that pierced his heart.
" Thoro's nae rest for mo. I flew up to
tho gato of heaven, but I wouldna be lot
In, and I'm dying ubout tbo world in the
coltl an'the rain, or lyln' aback a'thon
thorn hush. Think on me, Teaguo, tn
the night tlmo when you ones Is comfortable by tho fireside, an'pity mo an'
help me for the sake of we'er old
friendship."
"Help you I" crlod tho poor man;
"sure I'd gle my heart's blood to helpyou.
but how Is It to bo done? An'whywud
you not be lot into heaven, a good llvln!
woman like you?"
"I'll tell you, Teague," replied the
specter; "That's what I'm hero to toll
you. It's true that I went about ray
duty regular, an' knelt wl' tho congregation In the chapel Sunday after Sunday,
an' I was respootlt tor a good llvln'
woman, but In alt my lifetime I never
prayed. My lips would bo movln', but
my thoughts would bo away.
"When 1 was a young girl I'd be
thlnkln' of my sweetheart or my dress or
the dance at tho fair; when 1 was a
married woman I'd bo frettln' about tho
ohllder, thlnkln' ane o' thoni would fall
into tliu tiro or another would be drowned
lu the well while I was out, an' when I
was old thero wus frets an' anxieties
still; but, anyway, in all them years I
-never prayed,  so I   c.nna   be   let
"Mary, Mary. t»0t iOttll What Ult
I can do tot ,v»?"
"Listen, Toague. Go to his reverence
Father Ban, an' pay him to offer up twa
.massos for my sinful soul; but tho
monoy—"
"Tho money, Mary. It's hero,"
touching his pocket, "aye, if It was
Iwisto- ns much—it's hero. But how
will I know that the masses Is accepted,
an' that yo'll be let Into hoavon?"
Tho llguro began to fade away, and the
voice was fainter.
" If I am forgiven, the night after tbo
second mass Is said for me I'll como to
you In tho form of a white bird, an' I'll
stand In the window, at the foot of your
bod, an' sing you a beautiful hymn before I fly awny to hoavon."
The voice died away softly, and, Just
as thoy reached the flax mill the figure
disappeared. Weary though Toaguo was
that night, ho wont straight to tho
priest after supper and told him tho
strango tale.
Father Dan took the monoy and
promised to say the massos, encouraging
Teaguo to hopo that all would bo well
with Mury.
." Como buck an' toll mo if sho appears
to you again," said ho.
Homo iluys Interne had a second visit
from Teaguo.
"Well, ray good nrmn," ho began, "did
you got any word from that poor
soul?"
"I did, your roveronoo—I did."
"An' how Is lt wl' hor now?"
" Thanks bo to your revorenooan* tho
Lord, she's got to her rest now! It was
in tho night time, an' I was lying on
my bod wl* tho blessed rosary In my
hands, prayin' constant, when I heard
tho llutterln' o' wings at tha window, an'
then a beautiful hymn, like ane o'
them hymns that 1b Bung In tho chapel
on Easter Day, was sung, an' so I
knowod Mnry was going to heaven."
"Did sho speak, Toague?"
"Fecn a word! Tho hymn sounded
fainter an' fainter, till It was like a woo
gentle sound o' wind on tho Lough, an' I
was content in my mind to think that
Mary was, at her rest."
The flax mill on tho Mulroy road was
the seeneof another ghostly appearance.
The reader must transport himself In
imagination across tho ferry opposite
the. mill to tho farms lying beneath tho
hills, from whence thore was agood viow
of Teaguo nnd Mary's houso, and tho
wild range of mountains behind it.
Roso Dillon was tho prettiest girl in
the whole country, and sho had many
admirers among the rich fanners—any
one of whom would havo pleased her
parents better than the suitor she
choso.
James Majllton wasahandsomo young
man, but ho was not rich—ho hiul only
tho flax mill and a poor small farm
and threo cows. How-vexatious it was
thut Hose should sot her affections upon
him, when sho could have been mistross
of n slfttod houso and 1-1 cows.
Father Dan was entreated to use his
inlluonco, and he did saya word or two,
representing tlio worldly advantages of
Mike nnd Sum, Teddy nnd John. But It
wus nil to no purpose. Roso blushed
and persisted in clinging to JaincB.
"Put your commands on her, your roveronoo; she willna go against tho
church," liei> father said.
"No, no; that is not to bo dono," replied tlio priest. " James Is a good boy,
he pays his dues regular, an' Is diligent
nt his duty, nn' obedient to his church.
Ho deserves a good wlfo. Let Rose
havo him."
After that opposition ceased, of courso,
and a day was fixed for tho wedding.
Plenty of corned beef and cabbage, bacon
and eggs, tea and whisky wero provided;
two llddlers woro engaged; the neighbors
were invited to tho feast; nml all was
going merry ns a marriage hell, whon
James was' taken suddenly 111. Tho
priest was sont for, and then a messenger wont across tho ferry to summon
Rose.
Alas I thoro was notimo to say fuve-
woll. James was unconscious whon
Roso reuehod his bodsldo. To doscrlbo
hor wild grief would be impossible
Hanging over tho corpse, sho let her
tears rnln upon his placid face, unheeding tlio grave reproofs of tho women.
"Why do you bo cryln' that way, Rose
Dillon? Suro you know that your la-
nientln' will koop him frao hlB rest."
Thoy alluded to the belief that tho inordinate grief of eurvlvors troubles tho
departed soul, and wolghs lt down so
that lt Is unablo to soar toward heaven.
"Wad yo koop tho poor fellow flyln'
about tho world?" osked her grand-
niothor, who had boon brought across
tho ferry to attend tho wnko. "Sure,
suro yo wouldna bo that cruol to tho
poor boy that loved yo true? Lny buck
thon sheet, girl, an' drop nac malr tears
over him.   I ha' knowod It dono."
And then followod a long list of examples, tho exporienoo ot close upon 90
years.
Tho "wako houso," as the mill wns
called, whllo James lay there holding his
hist party, was qulto full, and men and
women listened to Grannlo Dillon respectfully, slinking thoir bends gravely
and uttering many an"Och, hock I and
Alnlso-u-mo I" tho while.
There was good ohcor nt this last on-
tcrtulnmont of James's—his cousins had
soon to thut. Toa and hrcad and butter
nnd whisky wero provided In nbtindanco,
and there woro plates of cut tobacco,
bundles of clean pipes, and supplies ot
snuff lor all comers.
Tho visitors wont ono by ono ovor to
tho hod, nnd, turning down tho sheet,
took a last look at tho corpse.
James wns laid lo rost In the chapel
graveyard at tho edge of Mulroy, und the
plover and curlow olrclod over his head,
and tho work of tho world went on iw
before.
lt happened thnt Rose's father followed her down to tho ferry ono evening
nml found her gazing nt the flux mill so
llxcilly Hint shodld nothear his footsteps.
" what Is It you soo there, girl?" ho
asked.
"Oh, fathor, do you no soo!"
"Naelhillg ova,. Hose."
"It's Jnnios that's standln' yonder on
tho shore lookln'ovor at ine. an' willies
lie lifts Ills bund an' waves to mo. He's
there every cvohln' an' I still como bore
lo moot him. It's tho only tryst wo can
hold how.*'
She ladod away from that tlmo; nnd
although James visited the mill nomorc,
It wus believed ho was beckoning to hor.
A year had not passed before tho
crones, meeting ono another, said:
"Do you know Hint I'm Just done
hearing?   RosoDIIIon's gotto her rest!'
II was true. The chapel hell was
knelling for hor; sho was gono to tneot
James upon tho further slu>r,e.

An amusing ineldent occurred recently
at a Sonooa-stroot drug stole.
A man had mado several purchases,
and to tho olork's Inquiry If ho wanted
anything olso he replied:
"Yes, thero was something else my
wife wanted mo to get. Let me see,
whnt was it? Oh, yos; somo Dolly Var-
den plasters."
"What kind of plasters?" asked the
clerk with a laugh.
" Dolly Vardon I Dolly Vardon 1" was
the answer, given with somo show of Irritation.
" Well, wo'vo hod some, but they're all
gone. I guess you mean helladoua.

"Yes, that's It. I know lt was something like that," and tho customer's perplexed countenance lighted up with a
smile oi aatlstaoiion.-fBuffalo Courier.

CANADA'S COMIC JOURNAL
T
GREAT IMPROVEMENTS FOR 1887.
HE AIM OF " GRIP" Is to set forth, In
_ in nn inipnrtinl and independent manner, the passing events of Canadian political and social life. Its Cartoons sp-jak
moro dollnitely nnd moro pleasingly than
who'e columns of editorial. In this pungent, easily appreciable, and artistic style
of presenting a subject, the wholo situation is revealed at, a glance. The success
of Grip shows how well this fact Is appreciated—Its Cartoons on tlie passing political events of tho country being even
more eagerly sought nftcr than the chaste
and humorous letter-press of the paper,—
though the latter is equal to thai of any
similar puhllenllon on the continent.
Tlio publishers of Grip are making ex
tensive improvements for 188(1. The old
cover Is to be discarded, mid tho journal
will hereafter comprise 12 pages, and be
printed on heavy toned and calendered
paper,—everv number being so artistically
executed as to compare favorably with
tlie best, papers on tlie continent. The
advts. will bo compressed and more systematically arranged: whllo similar improvements will be made as to the letterpress. A new and handsome design will
adorn the title page; while tho Cartoons
will certainly not miller from extensive
improvements in the nrtlstlc department.
Tho price of Grip will hereafter be Sin
vear, which is lower thnn thnt of nny
paper of-Hft-klnd li*.-Amerka,^most of
them selling for $5. Single numbers of
Gfriij wilPbclO cents. '
Twice nyenr.nt Midsummer and Christmas, a bmmttfnl special number will bo
Issued, the number of pages being increased, nnd pleasing features introduced,
particulars of which will be given lu preceding issues. These numbers will bo
presontod to subscribers without extra
charge,

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing   Company
CLiXMITHD.)
ON THE 10TH OP JANUARY, 1887,
tho Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased hy a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf New Westminster, to bo known as tho
" British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. The object of
the new company is to continue the publication of tho Bkitikii Columbian newspaper ami carry on a acncrnl printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whose individual interest it will bo
to promote tho development, especially
of the Mainland. There will ho no
slackening of tlie energy hitherto displayed in tho management ot the establishment, nnd its patrons mny rely upon
receiving full valuo for their money.
The Columbian will continue to be entirely independent in both Dominion und
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to tho advancement of sncli schemes as
may be considered in the public interest.
Tho concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, the -book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken ovor by Mr. T. R.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
in his own name and for his own benefit.
It is dosiroblo that a daily newspaper
should he maintained in this city, and
the new company asks for public patronage on the ground that it is engnged in
an enterprise calculated to promote tho
pnblio welfare. It asks that the Columbian bo judged on its own merits and
supported only so long as its policy is
onconsistt with its professions. In consequence of this business change alt accounts duo the concern must be settled
without delay so that the books of tho
former company may bo adjusted and
olosod. Address all communications and
remittances to

Thi Onderdonk Business.—The
defence entered with, regard to the

his British Columbia plant is that "the
Svernment were morally bound to seo
it Mr. Onderdonk did not suffer
lorn." Surely this explanation is unauthorized. If tho chief responsibility
resting upon a government with refer*
eoce to a contract is to see that Uie
contractor does not suffer loss, the
contract system is a farce. It has
hitherto wen the theory that the duty
of the government is to protect the

ftEPORTS OF COMMITTERS.
Coun, Duncan reported that thero
was an indebtedness of about 8200 on
the Mechanics' Institute, and it was
for the council to consider whether it
would be responsible fur this indebt-
ness.
His worship the mayor advised the
council to take up this indebtedness;
the library was a great benefit to the
publio and should be kept open.
On motion the account was referred
tu the finance committee, to be paid if
found correct.
Coun. Shiles, for police committee,
presented an application from the Chief
of Police Devlin for supplies for the
lookup.
Mayor Dickinson informed the council that the government had made arrangements to have the old jail and
lockup pulled down on tho 26th inst.
Coun. Duncan thought tho government should have given more time so
that some other place could bo provided for the prisoners,
Several councillors spoke in the same
strain, and various suggestions woro
made for the disposal of the prisoners.
Coun. Jaques—A good plan would
be to tie them to tbe telegraph poles
around town!
Mayor Dickinson—-Or let them run
with ta»s ou, ua they do du»3!
Moved by Conn. Jnfjues, nocoudod
by Coun. Unison that Iho report bo
adopted nnd the requisition uf the
chief of polico bo received.   Carried.
Tho mayor and Coun. Curtis called
attention to some defective sidewalks,
and tho board of works was instructed
to havo tho necessary repairs effected.
UNFINISHED BUSINESS.
The'reconsideration of Iho loan bylaw was brought up, and the mayor
said it would now bo in order to consider the petition on that imbject.
Coun. Duncan referring to tho petition, churnoteriKod ihe opposors of
tlie bylaw as crunks, soreheads and
disappointed people; he said that quite
a number of those whose names appeared on tho petition had not paid
their taxes, and displayed a great dual
of cheek in thus coming forward.
Ho was not in favor of forcing even a
good thing on tho people, howevor
against their will, and thought that
perhaps it might save a good deal of
trouble if the by-law wero not enforced.
Thero was some further discussion
on the question, when it was moved
by Coun. Jaques, Buconded by
Coun. Reid, that the by-law be reconsidered and finally passed to-night.
Carried.
THE SUNDAY BY UW.
Council thou went into committee
of tho wholo on the Sabbath observance by-law. Coun. Shiles in the
chair.
Clause 1 was read, and after some
discussion and objections by Couns.
Bonson, Elliott and Jaques, the clause
was defeated. Coun. Bonson remarked during the discussion that the
tendency of the Sabbath observance
by-law would be to ruin the tho town.
Coun. Elliott then moved, seconded
by Coun. Bonson, that the matter be
laid over until next January.
It was moved, in amendment, by
Coun. Curtis, seconded by Coun. Reid,
that clause 2 be taken up.
The amendment was lost and the
original motion carried, Couns. Duncan, Reid, nnd Curtis voting for the
amendment, and Couns. Elliott, Bonson, and Jaques, and tho mayor
against it.
SOME FOR0IBLB TALK.
Coun. Curtis—This by-law has been
tmirdored for the present, I am sorry
to any; but I must express myself on
tho subject if it is too Into to save the
measure. Mayor Dickinson has misled us. I repeat this, and I wish the
press reporters to make a note of it.
Coun. Elliott (interrupting)—They've
got no business to!
Coun, Curtis (continuing)—Mayor
Dickinson promised tho promoters of
this by-law that ho would support it
through committee, and now he comes
here, and after putting a supporter of
the bill iu the chair, votes to kill the
by-law before tho reading of the second clause!
Mayor Dickinson- I told Coun.
Curtis thnt I would BUpport tho by law
if it should come before the people,
but after our experienco with the loan
bylaw I don't want any more voting
on by-laws.
Coun. Duncan—Although the bylaw has been defeated, I want tho
council to know just where I stand on
this question. I am in favor of Sabbath observance, and always have been
nnd always will be. 1 do not bolieve
that any business of any kind should
bo allowed to be carried on on Sunday.
No works but those of necessity aud
mercy should bo permitted ou thnt
day. In any other place where I havo
lived no business was carried on on
Sunday, This is the only ptaco in the
British dominions where work of any
kind is carried on nil day Sunday, I
bolieve if a Sunday by-law wore to be
enforced that bofore long those who
are now opposing it would change their
minds, It is unnecessary 'to submit
the by-law to the people. It is for the
council to say whether it shall pass or
not. I am in favor of the by-law and
I wnnt tho people to know it.
Coun. Reid—Tho intention was not
to force anything upon the people, it
was to get an expression of opinion
from them. I am terribly surprised
to find out the way things hnve gone.
The question is not whether the people
would have voted the by-law down or
whether they would not. The question is to give the peoplo n chance to
Miy what they do wnnt. It is needless
for me to say that I am in favor of it.
I introduced it. I was not prepared
to have the thing killed.
Coun. Shiles—I do not understand
why every man does not want ono day
of rest in tho seven. I hope I shall
