Already tho Canadian Pacific
Railway bridge across the St. Lawrence, at Sto. Anne's, is completed,
and the first train has crossod. Tho
solidity and durability of tho structure are commended. It is little mora
than a year (June 1-886) since the
masonary was begun. Next week,
passenger trains will run over tho
bridge. This is the second bridgo
over the St. Lawrence, and a third
is projected; but when Quebec will
be in possession of tho facility whicli
it covets but does not feel that it
would bo justified in paying for, belongs to tho uncertainties. Tho
widest span of the now bridgo is 325
feet: the rest, with one exception
which is 104. are 66 feot; =in all
there are fourteen. The cost is put
down ut about $2,000,000.—jWoji-

Tlio cable brings us almost daily
most surprising news of Russian
movements in Central Asia. We
are informed this morning that 5,000
Russian soldiers have entered Kar-
ntegiu, on the northern edge of tho
Pamir Plateau, not over three hundred mile3 from waters which join
the Indus nnd flow for a thousand
miles through India. Wo aro also
told that Russian surveyors have
been baffled in their attempts to
survey Kufiristan, the lovely mountain region just north of tho Indus,
A few days ago it was announced
that Russia had asked permission of
tho ruler of Yorkand to move troops
through hi3 territory. Their dostin
iitiou, if not the Gobi desert, would
necessarily bo tho region on India's
northwestern frontier. Tlio best
writers on Afghanistan agree that
Russia can find better routes to India than by way of Herat; and it is
a note worthy .jijiA'tliivfcJior army is
rapidly drawing near to the routes
described by lloulger and others, that
lead to India through the passes of
the Hindoo koosch mountains.—N.

A Herald special from Newport
says; The Board appointed by Secretary Whitney to inspect tho Atlanta met on board the vessel on Monday, and an official report will be
made in a few days. The result of
the labors of tho Board as summarized is that the ship at present is
practically useless. Her structure
appears to be strong and fres from
.weekness, but her armament is hors
tic combat. The deck of the vessel
remains intact, but the gun carriages'
clip circle and clips will have to bo
repaired before farther tests can be
mado. This portion of tho fittings
of the vessel evidently were not intended to retard the recoil of the
guns and the damage done was. in
oxcoss of what was reasonable It
is manifest from the location of the
six-inch guns that if the eight-inch
guns wore in perfect order the six-
inch guns would bo idle, as it would
bo impossible to work both guns at
the same time. The smaller secondary battery is also useless while
either the eight or six-inch guns are
being fired. Tho result is that the
Atlanta, as a vessel of war, as her
armament is now arranged, is absolutely worthless, and the discharge
of her heavy powdered guns is likoly
to be followed by injury to the ves
sel. Throe batteries, which ought
to bo so arranged as to bo fired, if
necessary, simultaneously, are inoperative for single Ore.
On tho 13th of Novomber, 1848,
Daniel Webster delivered an address in tho Supreme Oourt of Massachusetts on the death of Chief Justice Mason. The following beautiful and impressive passages are
among his closing remarks: "Nothing of chacacter is really permanent but virtuo and personal worth.
These remain. Whatever of excellence is wrought in the soul itself belongs to both worlds. Real goodness does not attach itself merely to
this life; it points to another world.
Political or professional reputation
cannot last forever; but a eonsoionce
void of offense before God nnd man
is an inheritance for eternity. Religion, therefore, is a necessary and
indispensable element in any groat
human character. There is no living without it. Religion is the tic
that connects man with his Creator,
and holds him to his thrown. If
that tie bo all sundered, all broken,
he floats away, a worthless atom in
the universe; its proper attractions
all gone, its destiny thwarted and
its whole future nothing but darkness, desolation and death. A man
with no sense of religious duty is he
whom the scriptures describe in
terse and terrific language n. living
'without a God in the world.' Such
n man is out of his proper being,
out of tho circle of- all hirr duties,
out of the circle of all his happiness,
and awny, far, far away, - from the
purpose of his creation." —■ Inter

A  DOODTFUL MSrOBT.
Touosto, Ont., Aug^ 6.—It Is reported to-day that vast beds of anthracite coal of the finest sort have been
discovered nine miles from Oampbel-
ford, near Kingston, in the province of
Ontario. The discovery was made on
a farm by a doctor. The coal beds,
which are said to be wonderfully large
aro near the iron mines.
FESTIVE FISlIEKMBN.
CHiBLOTIETOWX, P. E. I., Aug. 6.—
Tho American warship Vantic, which
has been cruising around tbe coast
after the interests of the fishermen, arrived hero last evening and will remain
until Saturday. Capt. Quigley, of the
cruisor Houlet, has been sent to Tig-
nisli to watch Americans who have
beon purchasing supplies, etc., from
MyrieitCo. They were in the habit
of landing ostensibly for the mails, but
would purchase supplies aud have them
expressed tu a distance to the shore
when a boat from the vessel would
land and convey sll necessaries. They
(the Americans) hare about, when
ashore, taken charge of the place, destroying property. Since Oapt. Quig-
ley's arrival tilings havo changed. If
any Americans are ashoro after sun
down some of 'the cruiser's crew are
with them to prevent any violation of
the law.
MVSTEHIOUS EXPLOSION.
Cikcixkati, Ohio, Aug. 0.—A terrible explosion occurred here in the
vicinity of Walnut st. this afternoon.
The roar was not unlike that of an exploding boilor. It was first supposed
that an explosion of powder or a bursting boiler caused the racket, but a
hasty investigation showed no trace of
that sort. Peter Fisher, who was in
charge of the building, was going up
stairs at tho moment Four militiaman were passing at the tjfne. ., Just
as Fisher turned the knot an explosion filled tho air, and ono of the
soldiers cried, "a man upstairs threw
thai." The shock prostrated the four
militiamen, Ohamberlin, Kelso, Smith
and another. It is stated that whatever it was it exploded on touching the
sidewalk, showing tbat it must have
been a bomb of seme kind. Officer,
arrived upon the scene and thoroughly
searched the building. The searching
party arrested the only occupant of the
buildint? upon suspicion. His name is
Emil Lutz, aged 30, a Herman and
single. He was found in the third
stnry front room whioh ho occupied.
Tho polico aro searching for his partner, Peter Enge. The most plausible
theory is that the liumb was intended
for the soldiers.

Cincinnati, O., Aug. 0.—At Coney
Island, a pleasure resort 10 miles above
the city, this afternoon, two ruronaut.
named Young and Williams jumped
from a baloon 3,000 feet in the air,
and by aid of a parachute reached the
ground in safety. It ie thoir second
descent in a week.
MORE TKOUI1LE WITII   THE   IllONlTLAIW.
Losuon, Aug. 0.—The engines of
the Collingwood and Inflexible have
broken down for a time. .Those great
ironclads drifted helplessly in the
Strait, of Dover, in great danger of
collision with each other. Powerful
tugs have beon sent to their relief and
are ondeavoring to tow them into port.
KNAVE OR FOOL.
New York, Aug. 0.—ThomuJ.
Mooney, the man who tried to burn
the steamship Queen, was very quiet
tc-day in his coll. He fuels very well
satisliud with his treatment, but oo.
cassiona'ly breaks out in denunciations
of the brass-buttoned anglo-mnnisos,
who, he says, havo insulted him. Ho
means the police, who laughed whon
ho gave vent tu his views yesterday.
Deteotive Vail said to-day that from
observations, he had como to the conclusion that Mooney fs perfectly sane.
Oapt. Gastliu hopes to establish
Moonoy's connection with the Wyandotte nfl'nir, and ho says he has several
olues in his possession which will cause
that result. He entertains the belief
that Mooney is one of tho men who
operated so much in Lnndun, Glasgow,
Newcastle Upon Tyr.e, imrt.Liverpoul.

BRITISH WAR SIlIl'S APISH THE FlSdKIl-
MEN.
Halifax, Aug. 8.—The British war
ships now in North American water,
are to take a hand in settling the fishery trouble. The announcement has
caused general surprise on all Bides.
lt ia the first timo that the British
authorities havo interfered In tho fish*
ories fight, nnd the unexpected change
of polioy occasions no littlo anriety
among Americans here. The men-of-
war will not act as patrols, or to keep
American tisherinon outside the forbidden waters, but will make seizures
when thoy oross the line. There nro
war ships available for service at tho
moment, Admiral Lyons' flag-ship the
Bolleroplioii, the Canada, and the
Pylades.     These vessels an) now in
Halifax harbor. The present inten-
tion is to tend tha ships early next
week to the gulf of St. Lawrence to
reinforce tho Canadian cruisera.there
already. It is not likely that mora
llian 3 war ship, will be put at the
<rark of seizing Yankees, but if it
should bo considered advisable u
many moro can be ordered into these
water, from Newfoundland and Bermuda at a few days'notice.
HIE AM1RICAN AOMIRAl SMASH, '
Halifax,' Aug. 8.—Admiral Luce,
commander of Uie United State, tuv/il
force in North Atlantic waten, ha.
authorized the statement that his .hip.
were not sont to the gulf of St. Lawrence to prevent by force the seiaure
of American fishermen by Dominion
cruisers, but rather to render'inch
moral support as the mere prewnco of
federal ship, might afford. In the
event of a seizure of an Amenoa fishing vessel for an alleged violation of
the laws of the Dominion, the caw
must be fought out, ho say., in the
courts,

London, Aug. 8.—The wheat crop
of France it is estimated will amount
to 110,000,000 hectolitres, against 106,-
000,000 in 1886. The ltus.ianhar.ert
reports are mtisfaotory. The crania
especially good in Bessarabia and Po-
dalia, and doubtful in Volhynia, Minck,
and Moheeler owing to eicearive rain.
It is fair in the province, bordering on
tho sea of Azov and the river Don,
and exceptionally fino in Charkoff and
Poltava.
THE MEETING OF THE EMPBROR's
Gaston, Aug. 8th.— The scene 'at
the parting of the Emperor, yesterday
was touching, Emperor William preyed the hand of Emperor Franci. Joseph and said: "By the Almighty',
leave, reyoir until next year." Emperor Francis Joseph replied, "It is sure
and certain." It this point Emperor
William was overcome with emotion,
he kissed Emperor Francis Joseph
again and again and they finally separated.     	
The Chinese Wall.—An American
engineer, who ha. made the subject a
special study on the .pot, haa calcnla-
ted that tbe Ohinese wall hu a r contents of 18,000,000 oubio metre. (6,-
360,000,000 cubic feet). Tbe cubic ,
contents of the Great Pyramid i. only
241,200 metre.. The material used
in the construction of the Chinese waU
would be sufficient to build a wall
round the globe 1.8 metre (six. feet)
high, and 0.6 metre (two feet) thick.
The same authority estimate, the cot
of the Chinese wall to be equal to the
railway mileage uf the United State.
(128,000 miles). The stupendou. work
was constructed in the comparatively
abort period of twenty year..— Iron.

Sir John Lubbock, M.P., hu .no-

A crj#iK Shame!
Notwithstanding all eftorts made
by the board of trade to havo the
buoys properly placed at the sand
heads so as to make navigation safe,
nothing has yet been dono. Some
time, ago three new buoys were
brought up by the Rithet and put
down on tbe north side of the entrance to the channel, but Oapt.
Rogers informs us that the first o£
these buoys is so insignificantly
small that it cannot be discerned
at any distance, and it is of veiy
little use as a guide. In perfectly
clear weather a steamer can find
her way into the fraser without
difficulty; but if it is rough, or if
the atmosphere happens to be obscured by smoke or fog, it is impos
sible to find the channel wit'-.out
great risk and delay. For some
time both fog and smoke have been
prevailing on tho straits, and vessels "attempting to enter the river
aro compelled to grope their way
until the buoys are found. No. 1
buoy ought to be large enough to be
plainly visible at a distance of two
or three hundred yards through
smoke or moderate fog. We understand that Oapt. Lewis, whoso business it is to look after these things,
is still waiting for the return of the
8tr. Douglas. Now, the snag boat
Samson is lying at this city idle-
waiting for the Douglas also. The
Sanson is far better adapted than
the Douglas for handling buoys,
and it would he only the work of a
day for her to place a good buoy on
the north sand head until the channel has been properly surveyed and
all the buoys removed to their proper positions. But we are told that
the department refuses to engage
men to perform this work. The
practice has been to take the men
off the Douglas and put them on
the Samson for the purpose of placing the buoys, because it is cheaper
than hiring a crew for the snag
boat It is monstrous that such a
state of things should be permitted
to exist for a. single day. The
supineness of the government with
respect to the buoys, the channel,
ana the character of some of the
steamers on the Westminster-Victoria route is seriously threatening
to destroy the shipping of Fraser
River. At an interview between
the board of trade and Hon. Thos.
White on Friday Mr. Whito mentioned that he had been warned
against taking the steamer at Westminster for Victoria, and he and
his friends consequently went via
Vanconverl This is not an exceptional case. We have heard of
others coming over the 0. P. Ii. who
have received similar advice and
taken it. Moreover, it is a well-
known fact that more than half the
people who travel between this oity
and Victoria go by way of Vancouver because they will not take
the delays and risks incident to the
river steamers. When the people
of this eity come to realize the importance of obtaining reasonable
attention to these matters they will
probably make themselves heard;
but the damage that is being done
to the navigation of Fraser River
through the indifference of the officials and people may be difficult to
repair. In our issue of Saturday
we printed a letter from Mr. John
E. Lord which contained some remark! respecting the sandheads improvements worthy of serious attention. Whether the work already
done there has been thrown away,
as Mr. Lord states, we are not prepared to say. The importance of
applying the appropriations obtained
for that work intelligently and efficiently, however, no one will question; and the suggestions on that
point contained in the letter seem to
us reasonable. It will be very discouraging to find that tho work of two
or three years has been watted, and
that the undertaking will have to
be commenced anew. Obviously
the Dominion government would bo
saving much money, as well as
greatly promoting the public interest, if it would set aside at onco an
appropriation sufficient to do the
whole work, and have it completed
with all possible haste. Tlie estimate, we believe, is a very moderate one, and would not in the least
embarrass the federal treasury. In
the mean time we earnestly hope
the authorities will see the immediate necessity of hastening to place
proper beacons at the sand heads
before a serious marine diaster adds
to the reapansibilities already resting upon their shoulders. There is
an excellent buoy at the mouth of
the old south channel (now not used
nt all); and if the Samson was commissioned to take up thia buoy and
put it on the north sand head so as
to mark the entrance to the present channel, the existing danger
would be materially lessened. If
the Dominion government is too
poor or too indifferent to the public
interest to do this, let the city subscribe enough money to put the
Samson in commission one day and
save the reputation ol our river.

ON THE 10TH OP JANUARY, 1887,
the Columbian* Newspaper and
Printing Concern wns purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf New Westminster, to bo known as ttie
" British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern lias beon for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
tbo British Columbia Stationery and
Printi ng^Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. Tho object of
tho now company is to continue the pub-
lioatiou of tho Bbitihk Colombian news-
paper ami carry on a general printing and
jmbUsliing concern, controlled entirely by
thoso whoso individual interest It will be
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland. There will be no
slackening of the energy hitherto displayed in the management of the establishment, and ita patrons may rely upon
recoiving full value for tbelr' money,
The Columbian will continue to bo entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of such schemes ns
may be considered in the public interest,
The concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, the book and
stationery establishment in this eity
haying been taken.over by Mr. T. It.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
In hta own name and for his own benefits
It Is desirable that a daily newspaper
should be maintained In this city, and
tho now company asks for public patronage on tbe ground that it ia engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks tbat the Columbian be judged on its own merits and
supported only so long as its policy Is
enconsiBtt with its professions. In consequence of this business change all accounts due the concern must bo settled
without delay so that the books of tbe
former company mny be adjusted and

ta's fixtures by the inadequacy of
her gun carriages to hold and
control her pivot guns, calls attention to the fact that while
the latter are very powerful for
ah unarmored cruiser of her size,
they would make a small show
compared with the heaviest ord-
ancenow carried in war ships.
The progress of thirty years in
constructing heavy guns has
been extraordinary. The largest pieces found on war vessels
in i860 threiV a ball weighing
sixty-eight younds, with an initial velocity of 1,570 feet per
second, and an energy of 1,100
foot tons. Now initial velocities
in high-power guns have been
increase t<J 2,100 feet; projectiles
in the maxium weigh as much
2,300 pounds, and in' sbm'e cases
are propelled by charges of nearly halfa, ton of powder, while
the 110-ton guns of the Ben
bow reach an energy of about
60,000 foot tons. Passing over
the triumphs obtained by intermediate calibres, which were remarkable ih their day, we find
the largest French steel guns,
such as are used for the armament of the Terrible, completed
at Brest, the Re^uid, .built at
Bordeaux,"'" the' Indomitable,
built at L'Orient, and the Caiman, finished at Toulon, weigh
each about seventy six tons.
They deliver, a projectile weighing 1,716 pounds, with a muzzle
velocity of 1,739 feet per second,
and a muzzle energy of 30,000
foot tons. The guns are rifled
breechloaders. The French
have other powerful guns, those
constructed on the Bangc system being well known. The
Armstrong guns now mounted
for service in the Italian armor-
clads Duilio, Dandolo, Italia,
and Lepanto weigh 100 tons each
and throw a projectile of 2,000
pounds. These have long been
familiar, but the later breech-
loading guns are improvements
over the early muzzle loaders.
The most powerful of them
take a powder charge of about
772 pounds, and have an.initial
velocity dPl^J f fee* second fcnd
a muzzle energy of about 51,000
foot tons. Guns of 105 tons
have also been made at Elswick
for the Francesco Lauria, the
Anurcs Dona, and the Morosini.
In these the weight of the charge
is 600 pounds, the weight of the
projectile 2,000 pounds, the muzzle velocity 2,019 feet per seeond,
the muzzle energy 56,547 foot
tons. These will undoubtedly
prove most formidable weapons.
The largest Krupp gun weighs
nearly 119 tons. It is over 46
feet long, has a calibre of 15^
inches, and fires a shot weighing
2,314 pounds, with a muzzle
velocity of 1,800 feet. The maximum elevation gives it a range
of nearly 7^ miles. Its power
of penetration into wrought iron
is estimated at about 41 inches
at the muzzle, 31 inches at the
distance 1,100 yards, and 30 inches at 300 yards. At the distance of three miles its striking
average is still about 28,000 foot
tons. The Italians have two of
these guns mounted in a shore
battery, for which purpose
they are intended. The
English 110-ton gun, manufactured at Elswick, is about 44
feet long, and its actual weight
247,785 pounds. The screw
block removed in loading, weighs
2% tons. The projectile is a
bolt weighing i,8co pounds, and
l6# inches in diameter. With
850 pounds of powder the actual
muzzle velocity attained 2,078
feet, and the muzzle energy 34,-
ooo-foot tons; so that with 850
pounds, which the gun is constructed to use, an energy on
the projectile of 62,700-foot tons
is expected. The recoil of the
gun is very small. The British
also have a powerful new gun in
their 63-ton steel breechloader,
which will be carried on the
Rodney. It is expected to throw
a I3j<£-inch shot, of 1,250
pounds, with a powder charge of
580 pounds, and to attain 2,100
feet muzzle velocity. Should
thesccxpectationsbe realized, this
gun, though much lighter, will be
more destructive than the 80-
ton guii of the indexible, which
takes a projectile of 1,700 pounds
with a cartridge of 450 pounds,
reaching a muzzle velocity of
1,600 feet. It is said that the
next step attempted in heavy
gun construction will be that of
a 150-ton monster, this project
being attributed to the Essen
works. Tt would throw a shell
six feet long, weighing a ton and
a half. There arc also some
guns under construction whicharc
expected to accomplish great
results on somewhat new theories, as in the case of the one
manufactured for Colonel Hope.
This is to take an enormous powder charge, and to have correspondingly great,penetrative effect. But without going into
the possible successes of the
future, those which have already
been achieved arc sufficiently
astonishing.—N. Y. Sun.

What Physicians Say About the
STARR KIDNEY PAD.
"Treatment hy Absorption has for some
time been recognized hy Medical Mon to
be the most simple and effectual means
of conveying to Diseased Omans, "Curatives," but in cases of Kidney Disease and
Complaints attendant thereon, successful
treatment wns pruetu-ubly Impossible until the Introduction of the Starr Kidney
Pad. It costs less than a single prescription and Is Immeasurably more decisive
and effective than any quantity of litiernal
Medicinal dosing. Worn Immediately over
tho soat of Disease, Its curative properties
become absorbed by tho (Uncased and enfeebled Organs, continuously ami directly,
as required to Insure in return their healthy action and original vigour. It Is com-
tollable to the patient and pleasant In lis

Another EviiruxirE.— Tlie people of
Viotoria, having boycotted the C.P.R.
steamers because they wouldn't stop st
that city, the Times now calls fur a
boycott against the telegraph linns until a better? «t>rv ice is provided! Wo
are of opinion that air. Dunsiuuir wns
not far astray when lie said in tlm
legislature: ''Victoria is tho most
■ectional and selfish place in the province: it wants to get everything and
give nothing!"
AsTUiuuiTii Coal.— It is expected
thnt shipment, of coal from the anthracite mines of Alberta will bo mado
regularly to this provinco during tlio
fall and Winter. Wo havo not yet
heard of any arrangements for supplying tho mnrkot at this city. If our
citizens wero sure of obtaining a regular supply at fair prioos, many of them
would preparo to uso this kind of coal.
It is infinitely suporior to tho bituminous coal for domestic purposes, and we
hope to learn that onr market will be
supplied at prices which will bring it
within tho reach of all.
Fast Timb.1—Mails which left Yoka-

Puget Sound on July 30th. This is
the service furnished by the new steamship lino between Japan and British
Columbia. It goes to show thut the
most available route for quick transit
to tho Orient is from prrrts of the Pacific Northwest. Whon we - tako into
consideration tho fact that the steamships now in use on the new line are
Blow as compared with the "gray-
hounds" of the Atlantic service, wc
can easily predict what may be accomplished in the future towards reducing
the timo of passage between Amorioa
and A«ia,—Seattle Pont.
Stih. Hkiioinu.—We must protest
against tho hedging of tho News. His
claim was that he had p. circulation in
this city larger than the combined circulation of the Onardittn and Columbia* He now, apparently, wishes to
compare the circulation of his paper
with that of the Columbian only. This
we cannot permit. When he gets
through with proving (or failing to
prove) thathiB circulation in this city
is greater than tlio tiro Westminster
papers, wo shall be ready to arrange
for a comparison of circulation between
tho News and the Columbian. The
torms of our challenge required him to
put up his deposit first, and wo should
cover it, that proposal was perfectly
reasonable, and we have already insisted upon our cotemporary showing it
to be unfair or olse accepting it. Until
he does one or tbe othor there is nothing remaining to bo said.

Thb Nbw Silver Bonanza.—Work
at Illicillewaet mines is being pushed
with energy and exceptional evidences
of prosperity are evident. Mressrs. G.
B. Wright & Co. have over 50 men at
work mining, and many more engaged
in building trails through their mines.
The mines are situated about 3 miles
from Illicillewaet station, and about
6,000 foot above the C.P.R. track.
Tho ore mined is chiefly silver and is
very rich, some samples assaying
$2,000 to the ton. $700 to tbe ton
is uid to be the averaeo assay. Mules
tn now uud to pack the ore down the
mountain, but Messrs. Wiight & Oo.
propose shortly putting in a wire
cable road or cars at an early date.
The0. P. R. oompany ha»'o put iu u
siding to the foot of the mines and ore
is being shipped daily. Thu cru.hii.g
tnd other machinery recently inlro;
duced is being worked and thing) are

An Oli>fashionki> Storm.—One of
the most terrific thunder storms ever
witnessed by the most ancient inhabitant struck this city shortly after two
o'clock yesterday afternoon. Suddenly the heaven, grows Mack with angry-
looking clouds, and rain begun to full
gently; but no peis.iu tool: much
notice of the oleiuehtary conflict until
a vivid flash of lightning, accompanied
by t deafening peal of tliu nder startled
the whole eity. Rain thon fairly
poured down. Inside of 10 minutes
there were three terrific explosiuns of
electricity, end during that time six-
tenllis of an inch of rain fell ■■-equal to
000 lens to the acre. Thetheimi-
motor fell from 07 to 57. dipt. Peele,
who wu observing the atmospheric
commotion, MSerls that tlie first
thunderbolt passed through the Meth
odist Church, the second struck lire
river, and the third struck thu birn of
Mr. Joseph Wise, west of Douglas st.
The barn is tho only place where the
fantutic fluid lelt iu mark. The
thunderbolt .truck tha front dour and
seems to have run up toward, the roof,
knocking of several large splinters hut
doing no damage. Cant. Peele thinks
the building wu probably saved by the
telephone wire whioh ii attaohed to it.
A smsll quantity of hail fell, and tho
rain produced quite a flood throughout
the eity. Drain, and culvort. were
quickly choked, and it will cost not
lew than |100 to repair the damago.
At Vancouver very little rain fell.
About 4 miles this tide of the Brighton
House hail fell to the depth of 4 inches.
There wu a heavy shower at Ladnors,
but no nin foil at English's canneiy.
At Port Haney nnd up as fur as Harrison River thero was a slight shower.
Iti.very seldom that the people of
this eity have tho opportunity of wit-
ncssing a thunder storm, and it ia
many years sinco one equal to that of
yesterday has occurred.

Mr. T. C. Berohard, public school
teacher, Norland, writ..! "During the
fall of 1881 I wu much troubled with
Ililiousness .nil Dyspepsia, and part of
the tlm. wu nnabl. to attend to the
duties of my profession. Northrop k
Lym»n's Vegetable Disoovc.y and Dyspeptic Cure wu recommended to me,
and I havo much pleasure in stating that
1 was entirely cured by using oho bottle.
I have not hail on attack of my old com-
plaint .inc., .nd have gained fifteen
pounds In weight."
The Mist, to bu Flooded.—The
management of the Vancouver Coal
Company havo decided to flood the
now or diagonal slope of tho No. 1
shaft, having come to thu conclusion
that that is tho only practical way to
prevent tho "heating" bursting out
into uctivu flame und destroying that
portion of the miuo. This will delay
tho recovery of the bodies now in tho
mino for some time, as they cannot bo
recoverod till the water is again
pumped out. The oiheors and employees of the company have spared
no expense nnd have -run a sorious
risk to their lives in tho ondenvov to
recover the bodius, b.it tho "hontiiig,"
or firo as it is generally termed, mado
tho further search impossible for the
present. This will bo distressing
news to those who have the bodies of
their bolovod ones in tho deep recesses
of tho mino, but it must bo sumo con-
solution to them to know that tlie company lias spared nu oxponse, and thoir
fellow miners have nobly riskod thoir
lives in tho recent endeavor to recover
tho bodies of thoso now remaining in
tho now slopo of tho No. 1 shaft.—

About Uie Horse.
Tlio following article on tho horse was
picked up on the Btreet thia afternoon:
"Tlie horso is a pretty large animal;
sumo are as high as a man and others
aro no larger than a good sized dog.
Thoy are very strong and can draw
very heavy loads. Some horses havo a
very bad temper and kick at everybody
that comos near them, while others
will let you do nearly anything to
them. There are race horses that have
been known to run a mile a minute,
but others are not so fast. Wo uso
horses for drawing things. They eat
liny and outs and green grass and some
will eat straw. The harness is composed of many parta, among Ihe important ones uro the collar, tugs, reins
and hit. Horses can be kept in nearly
any country; they are kopt in atnblea
or lot run loose. Sumo men lot n band
of horses out and after n while they got
men called cow-hoys to bring them in;
thoy are very hard to catch and have
to bo lassoed."
Along the C. r. K.
imtihesthic notes from the selkirks- •
mining hews—im?rovem£mts. *c.
A gentleman from the interior informed a Columbian representative today that affairs iu the Selkirks are
very lively this sumtnor. Large number* of men are constantly arriving
and being omployed by tho C. P. R.
in building their snow sheds. Mr. I).
MoGillivray'B snow sheds at Summit
Lake uro nonring completion. Tho
boom of lllecrllewnet is something extraordinary. Houses are boing hurriedly built iu all parts of tho town.
Every hotel is full of strangers and
overy train diachorges a number of
miners for tlie new mines thnt aro being opened up ill tho vicinity. Mr.
G. B. Wright is shipping about 2 carloads of ore weekly to the .molting
works at Denver, Colorado. It is said
thero aro more peoplo now iu llleeillo-
waet thrill thore were ut Rogers Pass
lust summer. Big Eend is also looming up. A miner from there exhibited
a piece of quartz in which sevoral nuggets of gold were visible. Ho refused $100 for tho specimen. Tho
C. P. R. uro making gigantio improvements along tho line of railway. Snow
sheds are being built, steep outs and
Li-ados nre being repuired, the road-bed
is being well balasted, nnd everything
possible done to provide against delay
and accident. Tlioro nro about 350
guests at Banff. All other towns along

elstoke, whioh is uid to be almost

Westminster ts. Vanconver.
On Saturday a club of cricketers
from this city wont over to tho salt
water terminus to play tho Vancouver
team. Wickets were pitched at 1-30
and the game was finished about 6;30,
Vancouver winning with 93 runs and
one innings to spare. The unequal
character of the game is explained by
the fact that while the Vancouver
club has been organized and in practice for some time, Westminster really
has no club at all, and those who rep
resented this city had been practising
only a very short time. Moreover,
threo of tho players who were expected to take part could not go, and their
places had to bo supplied as best they
could from Vancouver. The players
from this city speak in high terms of
tho manner in which thoy were re-
coived and outertaiuod by the Vancouver club, who, aftor the game, entertained the visitors to a dinner at
the Gold House.. The following is the
score;

We understand that it has been arranged to play a return match at this
