Knturdny Morning, August IS. 1»8B.
current Events and Opinions.
The question of hotf fur a newspaper sbould go in tiie publication
of obscene mat tor is duly discussed
by M. J, Savage in the North American Jtevicio for August. The paper
on thc subject is entitled "A Profane View of tlio Sanctum." Although written before tlie Pall Mall
Gazette, exposures were made it
seems almost to have n special bearing upon the questions of newspaper
ethics which - have >yituin the lust
fow weeks been thoroughly discussed iu both England and America. The position taken ,by Mr.
Savage is not un extreme one; but
he maintains that newspapers frequently go beyond their province
and publish sensational matter, not
so much as news but for tho sake
of tlio sensation. He muiutains
that the excuse that the people demand such matter and buy the
papers containing it is in reality no
excuse, for, as he says, "That line
of defense would be equally good
on behalf of tho lowest groggeries,
or of houses of prostitution, or
gambling dens."—Seattle Post.    ■

Or, Messrs. DRAKE, JACKSON,

jom-nal sutfli an unenviable fame,
and it is possible to give liim the
benefit of 'the doubt. The editors
who have copied his articles make
the same claim, but in their mouths
it is false nnd hypocritical.' They
have been actuated solely by a desire to make money, at whatever
cost of pride and honesty. Their
attempts to justify themselves are
pitiable. They have. earned, and
they must bo content to bear, the
contempt of every decent man and
woman in America."—Tho Week
When the English cutter, the
Genesta, arrived in New York harbor the othor day as a competitor
in the coming international contest
for the America Oup, American
yachting men viewed the stranger
with some surprise, and tlie inspection seemed to kindle within thom
a strong hope that the trophy would
remain on this side of the Atlantic.
The Genosta, notwithstanding her
record, hudn't the look of n phenomenally fast craft. Sho was not us
trim and graceful as some of Iier
rivals. Her spread of canvas was
not as great ns had been alleged,
and a careful measure meat was
taken to provo this. Even tho
most cautious observers, while ready
to admit tlmt the cutter might have
more in her timn appeared upon the
surface, were not at aU alarmed by
the survey for the safety of the
much-prized cup. It is worth
while, however, noting the drift .-of
prevailing opinion at present. Tlie
defence of the cup has all along, in
sporting circles been allotcd to the
sloop yachts, the Priscilia or the
Puritan. In her trial performance
the former did not do exceedingly
well, but the latter, judging from
•the reports, showed such .wonderful
Sailing qualities that uo room was
left in tho mind of the ordinary
reader for the most diminiitivo particle of expectation that the English
contestant would have a ghost of a
chanco to win. To-day, the New
York Herald ts urging the committee of management not to be bound
to enter either of these boats, but
to seek nnd find, if possible, a yacht
thnt is faster. than either; and the
Tribune declares that the members
ofthe New York Yacht Club, under whose auspices the race takes
place, are staking their money Iti
.large odds upon the Genesta.. It is
i to be hoped that a fair raco will be
hud, and that the Americans will
not again resort to the dodges and
quibbles with which they pestered
the lifo out of Mr. Ashbury.—
Toronto Globe.
Tho New York Critic has refusfed
to bo led astray by the hysterical
rubbish which has recently Hooded
the press on the PaU Mall Gazette's
disclosures. Our valued contemporary traces the rapid decline of
the London journal under Mr.
Stead's regime. "Tho aim of tho
editor seemed to be, not so much.to
please us to excito, not so much'to
achieve popularity as to command
attention." From being "a paper
written by gentlemen for gentlemen," it has now come to be a
paper which, it is -'impossible for
the head of a family ever to allow
to enter his houso again. ..* * *
It may be that Ins terrible revelations will do something toward
checking the stream of vice and
crime that runs with broader and
more impetuous current in London
than iu any other city in the world,
simply because London is the largest
and richest of the world's great
cities. The editors of the Gazette
know that the publication of the
result of their researches wilt do a
great deal of harm; but they are
equally confident that the evils
thus wrought will lie more.thnn
counterbalanced by thc good accomplished. We trust it may.' Hut
the good will be confined almost
exclusively to London; its eflects
will certainly extend but little, if
at nil, beyond the limits of Great
Britain; while the harm will spread
as far as the English language is
read," Tho Critic then proceeds:
"Mr. Stead cluims to have been
actuated by pure motives in making
tho disclosures that have given his
Hiiiing in the Mountains.
It iB probable, saya tho Montreal
Herald, that tho noxt --boom" in the
Northwest will he a mining ono. A
short time ago rumors lloated about
that gold had buen fuund somewhere
on the mountains in tho .neighborhood
of the 0. P. K., and as everyone believes that there aro rich quart/, veins
yet to be discovered in the Rooky
mountains, the mention of a find arrested everyone's attention. Quickly
following the first news camo more
definite intelligence, and private letters to pnrties in this city.--an extract
from dub of which is published in a
local journal as follows:
"The richest and largest quartz vein
perhaps ever discovered has. been discovered within the past throe weeks at
McCulloch creek. Tlie vein is two
feet wide, and the quartz has yielded,
on assay, 920,000 to the ton. McCulloch crock is a tributary of Gold creek,
whieh empties into tho Columbia river
about 50 miles above the second crossing of tlie Culumhia. Tho mountain
is the ono which fed that creek on
which such wonderful deposits of placer gold woro taken ont in 1850."
That the gold fever will appear in
an aggravated form may be taken for
granted. Whore there is a McCulloch
creek there ue probably other creeks
fed by tho same mountain, nnd the
reputation of the locality is such as to
ensure a rush for the discovery of its
hidden gold. And access to the auriferous region is now made so oasy by
the C.P.R., that numbers who would
othorwiso have looked from afar, aud
longed with sueh resignation as they
could command, will now bo up and
doing, Tlio fortunes realized in California, at Biill.irnt, in Australia, in
Nevada, Colorado, nnd other places,
will be remembered, and tho opportunity for doing likewiso will seem to
thousands tn be within their reach.
Probably othor localities will ba found
in valleys not yet suspected of containing this most precious of minerals, and
mountaineers having mining proclivities, those who have once touched gold
in tlio now abandoned bars and quartz
mines, nre unremitting iu their search
whilo hopo remains, and hope, oven in
lose exciting circumstances, springs
eternal in tho hutniui in-mint. If this
find on the liend of thu Columbia
proves to be a rich one tho old story
of 1840 and its succeoding yoars will
be repeated.
Wlmt the Gatling DlOot.
"It must have beon great fun to
have Beo.n the ('Jailing mowing down
the Half breeds," remarked a St. Paul
lady to yuur correspondent on the
way home hist week.
"It would have beon great fun in
its wny, porhaps," wns the reply, ''but
unfortunately for the Gatliug and us,
although thc Halfbreeds may louk
upon it in a different light, there was
uo mowing*—it was not the season.1'
Sovoral cif the doctors and a number
of officers made a point of inspecting
tho" bodies of the dead rebels'the day
aftor the chargo, and ono body was
found with* three or four Gatling bullets close together in his chest. He
was the only man killed by tho machine gun, so the rebels suy, and thoro
is no reason to doubt it. As the General says, tho gun is very good for
moral, but no use whatever for mortal
effect. The (irst day the gun waB
taken into rump nt Fish Creek a barrel waB put up on end at a rango of
300 yards, and the General, Howard,
Straubenzie, Petors, Prury, and a
score of the crack nrtilicryists and
rifle Bhots did their best to hit it with
the Gatling. Two hours must have
been taken up by the practice and
several hundred rounds expended, but
only two or three bullets found tho
staves. It Ib remarkable what little
credit Lieutonnut Rivera hns got for
the gallant manner, in which he tuok
the Gatling into action. He took the
gun everywhere it went, and if nny
credit is givon-for this ho should got
it. Howard, once the gun was in
action, worked the crank and lever
with a dash which has brought him a
wonderful share of credit, and it wns
n good thing hn was on hand, as once
during the- first day's fight something
wont wrong with tho gun, nnd without nn expert suoh as he along with
the force, it would probably have remained disabled until it could have
been sent to a workshop for repairs,—

The Bacchante.
Her Majesty's ship Bacchante has
had a lively timo lately in the gulf of
Aden. We don't know exactly how it
came to pasa, hut she managed to
Anchor in the middle of a cyclone of
great and original powers, which tested
her timbers to tlio utmost. Thocy*
clmio tint tried to blow the ship right
out of the water, hut not being able to
do this, procccdod "othor gates" to do
as much damage as possible. The sea
rushed on board) filled the admiral's
steam barge with water, and carried
away her headgear, Anothor big wave
dashed on to the Bacchante's deok,
carrying everything before it, tearing
tha punt frotn ita davits, and nuking
matchwood of the whaler. The corvette's steam launch then went down
bodily, and the admiral's launch capsized. The cabins of the Bacchante
contained furniture which careered
ahout as if it were drunk, and altogether tho ship had a bad quarter of
an hour. We doubt had tho Bacchante gone down, if a" single soul
would have been saved of those on
board, Short of calling a cab nnd
driving to shore, nothing could have
been done, and we think thnt course
might not at that moment havo boen
practicable.—American (Paris) Regis*

Saturday Morning. AugUKl 15, IKS.').
Cholera has now made its appen
a»ce at a large number of tlie Eur
pean watering places, aud tho constant and very rapid increase
in the" number of victims in
Spain is causing tlie greatest
anxiety. Ho far Great Britain
scent*- to have escaped the scourge,
but it can hardly bo expected that
she will be able to maintain a quarantine complete enough to secure
continued immunity. It is to be
hoped the horrors of the plague
now to be seen in Spain muy not 1
repeated in any other country
panic stricken have the people become that whole villages are almost
deserted, and the detid have been
suffered to lie unburied for day
So
When the consideration of the
new land and timber regit hi tions
was occupying the attention of tlie
people of this district, Tin; GoiUM-
BUN expressed the opinion that
Mr. Homer, our representative in
the commons, had not neglected to
use means for securing the modifications so much desired. The
official report of the senate debutes
for July IGth shows this opinion to
have been well founded. Oh the
16th Senator Mclnnes moved for
papers relating to the obnoxious
regulations, whereupon Sir Alex.
Campbell, leader of the senate, said:
"The attention of the government
has been drawn to this subject
again and again by an honorable
member of the other house, who
represents the electoral distriot of
Westminster, Sir. Homer, who has
exerted himself since tho beginning
of tlie session to effect somo change
respecting the lands and timber
regulations relating to Dominion
lands in Britisli Coiumbin, and the
country will be indebted to him for
any change that may be made. Of
course there is no necessity for say:
ing anything further on it, as the
papers will be brought down aud
will show the exertions ho has
made." The testimony of Sir Alexander is clear, and emphatic, nnd
uuupteu wall die fact thnt the niodi-
fif.fi*****'   ortnobf*   in,,   i»   Mtb t-.imlio*
and land regulations were obtained,
should be proof enough u£ tlm industry of Mr. Homer while at
Ottawa.
The Steamboat Collision.
There has been a great deal of
conflicting evidence taken in connection with the lute steamboat collision, which shows how differently
two people will be impressed by the
same incident. One can easily imagine how passengers would give very
untrustworthy evidence about distance und time under such circumstances,, but when Capt. Myers
swears the Enterprise was 1,200
feet from the rock, and Mate Leech
swears she was not more than 75 or
90 feet, one wonders how two professional men can so widely differ
in their judgment The evidence
showed plainly that the place where
the accident happened is not easy
of navigation in consequence of the
strong tide and the eddies, and the
coroner's jury saw proper to censure Capt. Insley for leaving the
Rithet in the hands of the quartermaster under such circumstances.
It wits shown that tlio steamers
were very apt to tako a sheer at
that point, and that there the two
steamers usually passed each other.
Under tliese circumstances one
would havo expected that extraordinary precautions would have been
taken by the commanders of both
steamers to prevent accidents. Tliese
precautions do not seem to have
been taken at all. Tho Rithot was
left in solo charge of a man who
had no official status, und the mate
had chargo of the Enterprise. Tlie
weight of testimony is certainly in
favor of the theory that tho .Enterprise sheered and got boyond control. Capt. TJrquhart, of thc tug
Pilot, says that if the Enterprise
was close to the kelp, as stated hy
the oflicer in charge, "she must
sheer when striking tiio tide."
Surely then the officer at the helm,
when he saw the other stoamer
coming to pass at so critical a placo,
ought to have taken no risks. There
was plenty sea room, and no reasonable excuse for the collision. It
seems to ub, in view of the evidence,
that tho carelessness was not confined to the captain of the Rithot,
There was on hoth steamers a failure to recognise the great responsibility of those to whom the safety
of human lives had been entrusted,
and it does not seem just to single
out Capt. Insley as the only person
deserving censure.
[.ong t-refllts.
Reform is the order of the day,
and it may be snid with much reason
that reform, like charity, ought to
begin at home. It is a disputed
point among men of the present day
whether the world is growing botter
or worse. Wo believe it grows better. We believe the tendency of
civilization and Christianity, which
have undoubtedly widened greatly
the sphere of their influence, is to
improve the condition of men. But
the day is far off yet when there
will bo found no room for reform.
In our social life, in our political
practices, in our business methods,
there are many things still left for
the hand of a reformer. One of
these things, to which wo invite
public attention this morning, is the
present system of long credits. In
times of general prosperity, when
labor and money and trade are
plentiful, tho evil results of credit
may not appear upon the surface
It is when employment becomes
scarce and money tight that the
evil appears most conspicuous. Then
long credits produce a harvest of
crippled finances and unnecessary
bankruptcies. Thero are merchants
iu this city with from 815,000 to
$25,000 outstanding on tlieir books,
and a large percentage of these accounts will never be collected. Some
of them have been allowed to run
for many years, and then to stand
for many years more, and the longer
they stand the less likely are they
to bo paid. Thero are very few
merchants doing a large credit business who would not. gladly dispose
of their entire book accounts at a reduction of 10 per cent, for cash.
Now, 10 per cent, on $20,000
amounts to $2,000. Thut is to say
if the goods represented by these
accounts had been sold forcash they
could have been sold at 10 per cent,
discount and the merchant would
have had the same profit. If it is
asked, who loses this $2,000 of bad
debts, we reply the loss falls upon
the persons who buy for cash, or
else tlie merchant himself speedily
goes into bankruptcy. .No merchant
who gives long credits ever expects
to collect all his accounts, and in
fixing his scale of prices provision
must be made for tins. He must
receive a certain profit for handlin
the goods so as to make the business
pay, and that profit is materially
lessened by bad dobts. The result
is that the percentage of profit must
be increased to an extent sufficient
to covor these contingencies; and
4.1       ll ' -• , *'.*     ■
who pays cash, are assessed for the
losaos arising from bad debts. In a
cash business tins unfairness does
not exist. The merchant who gives
no credit is ablo to fix his scale of
profits upon principles that .are
known, and not contingent upon the
honesty or good fortune of his customers, and the result would be a
reduction of from 10 to 20 per cent,
in the prices of goods. There are
many other considerations which
enter into this question; but our
present purpose is to bring i£ before
the public that it may be fairly and
honestly considered. It will be
found that it is in the interest botli
of the merchant and the consumer
that business should bo done upon a
cash basis, for both suffer serious
loss from the credit system that prevails to such an alarming extent in
this country,

Complaints havo been made concerning
tho conduct of a number of boys who
congregate about the court houso
grounds and the old buildings on the
south side of Clarkson Btreet for play.
Some of those boys habitually use the
most disgusting and profane lauguago,
and they express themselvea with an
energy that engages the attention of
everybody in tho btock. The sporta,
which are in themselves hurmless
enough, are kept up until 0 o'clock
and after, and some people wonder if
parents have the remotest conception
of the kind of associations and influences that surround their children
there.

At the Same Rate,—The putting
of the bark Isabel in the tea trade by
the Northern Pacific Company had the
effect of reducing transportation rates
to eastern ports one-half. The old
rate was 3 cents a pound to New York.
Tho Isabel, as the result of competition, cut to If cents, nnd at that her
cargo was secured. The German ship
Harmonia was one of the vessels that
tas put by the Californians against
her, and she is now at San Francisco
with a cargo of 2,182,000 pounds
brought at tho same rate. The rate to
San Francisco heretofore has been 2_
cents a pound. Should shipments by
the Northern Pacific Company continue rates will undoubtedly take a
further fall. -Seattle Post,

Canadian Pacific railway has received
65,000,000 in treasury notes from the
government, which thoy have paid
over to tho Bank of Montreal, swelling tho surplus of idle money. Today stocks generally were from 1 to 2

A Close Shave.—A despatch from
Eagle Pass, datod the Oth inst., says:
"On Ihe last trip of the str. Spallumcheen to Eagle Pass a spark set fire to
aome bales of hay piled on the deck.
Beforo discovered several of them
were blazing fiercely, being fanned
by a stiff breeze which waB blowing
at the time. Some of the passengers became alarmed nnd wished to
take to the boats, but the captain
would not allow it, and set them to
work with buckets. The-hose was also
started, and after half an hour's fight
the flames were extinguished. A
large- portion of the 80 bales of hay
on board were burnt or thrown overboard, and the upper deck partially
damaged. As the steamer was in the
middle of the lake, it was a narrow
shave. The Spallumcheen river has
fallen very rapidly and is hardly navigable. The bout will cease running
in u short time.

with tho youth and beauty present and
tho auspicious weather, presented a
joyous scene the like of which had
never before been witnessed in Chilliwhack. The universal esteem entertained for the bride, who has grown
up from infanoy in this settlement,
was evidenced by the many friends of
all classes and denominations who

J. Hall of Granville and tho pastor,
Rev. 0. Bryant, the last named minister on behalf of his congregation came

her with au elegant gold watch and
chain, the watch bearing an engraved
inscription. Mr. Wells replied in suitable terms on behalf of his daughter,

To Miss Wells, Chilliwhack .•—In the
name of the Methodist congregation
worshipping here and in their behalf, I
avail myself of this happy and auspicious
occasion—the event of your marriage—
to presont you with the accompanying
?old watoh and guard, which, according
a its  Inscription duly engraved, will
ever remind you uf their oinccrc appreciation of your past services, so cheerfully given and so worthily performed,
as organist cf this church. They beg
you to accept this expression of tlieir
loving regard, not because its intrinsic
value at all equals or approximates the
worth of your disinterested efforts tu
mako tho service of Bong in our public
worship interesting, but that in years to
come—which we pray may be many and
blessed—this memento of kindness and
affectionate esteem from your Chilliwhack
frienda may assure you that although
distance may separate you from them,
your namo and memory are not forgotten.
You part from us to-day to enter upon &
atill more eminent and enlarged sphere
of christian usefulness, and this consideration mitigates very much ths regret we
feel in your departure from our midst,
but if your future success as a servant of
the Lord Jesus be what we all pray for
and expect, yon will certainly be blessed
indeed. As we bid you farewell und
tender yau this slight recognition of
your christian excellences aud virtues, it
is accompanied with our earnest, heartfelt prayers that, as you have aided us in
hymning the praises of God here, you
may be accounted worthy, with ourselves, to join in tho richer psalmody of
the skies, and to sit down together at
the marriage supper of tho Lamb.

Upper Sumas, Aug. 4.—Haying is
about over in this settlement, and tho
farmers havo secured large quantities
for their stock during the coming
winter. Tho weather has boen, and
is still, all that could be desired for
saving hay and grain crops. The
grain is nearly all in the barns. Stuck
is in splendid condition. Mr. Turner and Mr. Sprott aro llore-at present attending to tho requirements of
the settlement, nnd I understand they
are going to have the roads and
bridges put in passable order, which
gives much satisfaction to all parties
here. Our mail system here is not
juat what we would expect, but we are
looking for better at an early dny. It
is rumored hero that Mr. Harry G'rlfc-
nu, the mail contractor -who carries
the mails between here and Sumas,
has geen appointed local inspector, and
is going to have the office removed to
his own buildings, which will, in his
estimation, be a good change, as he
will then have only a fow miles to
carry the mail from the Sumas P. O.;
but some of the settlors will then
havo only six or seven miles to go
for their letters. Please explain elnuse
5 undor the sub-head "Department of
the Interior" in the new land regulations for 1885, as it is not generally
understood whether a member of the
geological survey can take up any land
for himself or others hero, or had
they that privilege prior to 1885?
[Members of the geological survey
cannot take up public lands for themselves or us agents for others; nor
could they since 1883 at least.—Ed.]

CONTINUATION OF THE OFFICIAL ENQUIRY.
John Leech, being sworn, testified
that he was mate of the Enterprise at
the time of the accident; had a certificate of competency; weather was
dear and smooth; we had not rounded
point when we first saw Rithet; saw
her when wo were east of point; sho
was steering a little on her port bow;
that was,, before we had rounded the
rocks; the Enterprise did not sheer
when rounding tho point, as I guarded
against it; had her helm hard to port;
had been at wheel about eight minutes; the oaptain followed me into the
wheel house; Rithet blew whistle three
or four minutes after I went into the
wheel house; at the Ume of accident
we were right at the edge of kelp;
don't know how I was hurt; first thing
I remember was Capt, Rudlin and
a deck hand taking me out of wreckage; I remained in wheel house until
Rithet's bow was nearly tu our Baloon
deck; Rithet was still forging into the
Enterprise when I was pulled out of
the wreckage; when I came nut pilot
house and mast wore gone; have no
recollection of how I got nn llithet;
left tho pilot house just as shu was
going to strike the upper deck; don't
know what struck me; did not see
Capt. Rudlin until he pulled me out
of wreck; Rithet took a sheer, uud
told Capt. Rudlin Bhe sheered to her
Eort; I said, "Rithet is taking a sheer,
think she is starboarding her helm;"
am sure our ongino had stopped; out-
helm was hard to port; Enterprise
only took small sheer when striking
the current, not hnlf a point; heard
their whistle and gave an answering
one; if after tho Rithot having blown
for us to purt we had starboarded our
holm we would not havo cleared, as
the Rithet was going very fust; from
the Rithet's whistle to tho accident
was about two minutes; if the Rithet
had uot taken the sheer, think we
would have cleared; weru coining
round rooks ns usual with flood tide;
the tide was running pretty strong;
don't think we wero more thau 25 or
30 yards off tho rock; wo were to tho
southward of the point.
Donald Urquhart, sworn, testified
that he was captain of the Pilot, and
a master mariner; saw the Enterprise
in Cadboro bay; a vessel as a rule will
take a sheer when rounding that point;
at time of accident, 2 o'clook, it wuuld
be strong Hood tide; it all depends
whether you take a sheer or not; if a
vessel was closo to the kelp she must
sheer whon striking the tide; she is
bound to sheer; her helm would be of
uo use until she got into the even current; had wilnoBS beeu on the Enter*
Krise he would havo starboarded her
aim if he was on starboard of Rithot,
evon after hearing the hitler's whistle,
if it would havo saved collision; in his
opinion the accident was caused by
adhering too closely to tho rules of
tho road; thnt is in regard to thu
whistles and old style of sailing,
William Moyer, sworn, testified that
he was master of the Western Slope;
was at powder works, Oadboro bay
point; heard tho crash and saw thu
accident; at the time tho Enterprise
was clear nf eddy nnd wns just strik
ing the tido; did not see lhe Enterprise take a sheer; u vessel will take
a Bhoor around that point if the tide
ia running strong; heard the Rithot
hlow her whistle; they wore a quarter
of a mile apart; was watching them nt
tlie time; tho Rithet was not too close
into sliore; nu other vessel was coming; think the Enterprise was 400
yards off (he rocks; the tido took off
tho Enterprise and tho Slopo towed
her away; they were locked about 25
minutes; if both had kept to port thoy
would have cleared each other; that
was at the luno the whistle blew.

Editok Columiuan.—I wish you would
kindly draw the attention of the promoters or managers of excursion parties
visiting the Government Hatchery to the
fact that I object to having my orchard
robbed. A party of temperance people
ou the str. Dunsmuir landed on our
wharf yesterday and several of the
younger members (not children, but
youug men) proceeded to steal iny fruit,
and although caught red-handed tbey
had the effiotery to say they were not
stealing. A threat of arrest, however,
made them disgorge,. It is almost unnecessary to add that Unless excursion-
ists can bo induced to recognize the right
of private ownership in fruit, ke., the
favor of tying alongside our wharf will
no longer be extended to them.—Yours

NEWS FRUM ALL PARTS OF THE WOflU.
London, Aug. L—Although the electoral campaign Is ubout to open, both
political parties are still in search of a
definite programme of party aotion. The
developments of the past week disclosed
an immense rupture in the Conservative
party, caused through through the discontent of old Teries, who constitute the
vast bulk of the party. They believe
the present Conservative leaders have
been going too far lu their efforts to propitiate the Parnellites and secure them
as alllesr Remonstrances have been sent
to thc Marquis of Salisbury from uearly
all the provincial Tory'election agents.
Tliese remonstrances, added to the protests of the Conservative members of
parliament, have been made the subject
of Cabinet discussion. The result is that
Lord Randolph Churchill has submitted
i\t   uiii-bv   tU->ulfJliuv.    Ht* mumm tu ume
an humbler public role, and has engaged
to go before his angry and disappointed
party colleagues in Liverpool ana explain
to them, and attempt to justify his relations with the Irish Home Rulers. He
has also consented to go on an electioneering tour under the direction of
the Marquis of Salisbury, Lord Randolph is stubborn, however, and has not
surrendered unconditionally. He has
secured the consent of Iub mora aged
party managers to advocate a Conservative policy which will embrace local government reform and reform in the British
laud laws. It is true these terms are
very general, but it may be safely predicted that having committed his party
to a general advocacy of local sel-goveni-
ment and Und law reform, Lord Randolph will in his own good time secure
the adhesion of the young Conservatives
to *a decidedly particulor and radical application of tho same principles. He will
then trade—that is, lie will merge his
following with that of Parnell and Chamberlain, snap hia fit ten at Lord Salisbury and i "old .jies"and go in for
leaderslu      'lis i*-.*-. account.

saying lt was his conviction, and that he
was resigned to die on Sept. ISlii, na his
mission would lie accomplished. He. refused to give any information on the rebellion or other matter*, as he proposed

family.
London, Aug. fi.—Henry Labouehere,
radical, in tho house of commons this
aftornoon moved, und Sir Wilfred Law-
son, radical, and Sir George Campbell,
lilin-al, seconded the motion, that the
house reject the appropriation bill' until
thc present government explain their
Kgyptiau policy. The terms upon which
tho government had issued the Egyptian
loan, Baid Mr. Labouohere, was a public
scandal. Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, chancellor of the exchequer, said: The government had sent Sir Henry Dniinmond
Wolff as special envoy to the sultan.
Thc last five years had greatly increased
England's obligations toward Egypt,
While tho govemment must refuse to
stato at present what instructions Sir
Henry Drmninond Wolff had oarried
with htm or what the object of his mission was, the speaker could state In general tonus that "the government's policy
k to pnt Egypt on a solid footing with re-
jnrd to external defense, financially aud
nternal administration. Our polioy is to
gradually give security snd freedom to
Egypt's independent aotion in the future." He could at present make uo
statement regarding tho question of evacuating Egypt', but concerning tiie d -•)
femes of the country and the position of
affairs at Suakim, ho could say both
were in a most unsatisfactory condition.
Mr. LalKJiichere's motion was rejected.
London, Aug. 9.— Mr. Herbert Gladstone, son of the ex-premier, in his assertion that nu alliance had been made he
tween the Conservatives and I'niuellites

former life, had become active workers
iu thc army. Tbe facts were laid before
the Pall Malt Gazette after which ho decided to make an investigation. Converted members of the Salvation Army

newspapers comment on the great number of German spies discovered recently
in various parts of Franco. It is reported

the expulsion from French territory of
all Germans who can be proven to be
spies or who can reasonably bo suspected
to be auch. The chamber of commerce

Pott Zegnro and a little portion of the
west coast*of Africa and urging the government to maintain the rights of France
along that part of the African coast.

nnd Political Journals say
ahout Intoxicating
Drinks?
A COHqCNSEU ANSWER FOR THE STUDY OF
THE PEOPLE.
Lord Chesterfield said in his tiny,
"Lot us crush these artists in human
slaughter, who have reconciled their
country to sicltness nnd ruin, aud
spread over the pitfall of debauchery
such a.bait as cannot be resisted."
Lord Brougham asked the question:
"To what goud is it that tho legislature should pass laws to punish crime,
or that Iheir lordships should occupy
themselves in trying to improve tho
morals of the peoplo by giving thom
education? What could bo the use of
growing a littlo seed here aud pliioking
up a weed there, if these beer .shops
aro to be colitintied to sow floods of immorality broadcast, over the land,
germinating thu moat (rightful produce
that ever litis been allowed to grow up
in any civilized country, aud I am
ashamed to add, under the fostering
care of governments."
Tho celeb rat eu Rowland Hill, said:
"Public houses—the bane of tho country—excite the strongest indignation
in my mind."
Oliver Goldsmith, said: "Ale houses
are ever an occasion of debauchery and
excess, nnd eithor in a political ot- religious sense it would bo our highest interest to have thorn suppressed."
Lord Bacon declared that "all the
crimes on earth do not destroy so many
of the human raco or alienate so much
property as driiiik-emioss."
Richard Oubdeii, une of the people s
host friends, said: "Every day's experience tends more aud more to lhe
conviction that tho temperance cause
lies at lhe foundation of ull social aiid
political reform."
John Bright, another of thc people's
champions, said: "A monster obstacle
is. iu our way—strong driolc, by wliatover name the demon is styled, in
whatever way it presents itself, this
prevents our success; remove this ime
obstacle, and our course will bo onward, and our labors will he blessed.''
Prof. Foster, stated: '"That the traffic in alcoholic liquors as beverages is
productive of serious injury to the
moral, social, and industrial wolfaro of
tbe people. The evils of intemperance
remain so vast in magnitude, so wide
in extent, and so destructive in effect
ns to constitute a social peril, and a
national menace."
Goldwin Smith, Canada's great
thinker, says: "It is too clear that the
rapid extension of this system of saloon
drinking is threatening the very life of
the community; that it is producing a
physical and moral pestilence more
deadly in the deepest sense than any
othet plague which stalks the infected
cilies of the East, that it is bringing
great masses of our working classes
min a self-imposed bondage, more complete and more degrading than slavery
itself; that it is not only filling the
present witli unspeakable misery and
vice; but blighting the prospects of
labor for the future."
Dr. Guthrie, a celebrated Scotch
diviue, says: --Intoxicating drink is
thc foul parent of by far the lamer
number of the evils tlmt curse our
country, disgrace our churches, aud
afflict humanity. It makes many virtuous women vile, ina-iy kind husbands unfeeling brutes, and loving
mothers monsters." Speaking of a
i.u-.i*i;ful ri.una girl who was deliberately drowned ,bv her own fnther in a
fit.-f &M_ti.\A oUn.. ho t-avs..'-Shis onu of the many thousand victims
otfured up, year by year, to the demon
of this land."
Couut de Muntuloinbert, member of
the French National Academy, said
"Whero theru is a wino shop, there are
the elements of disease, and tho frightful source of all that is at enmity with
the interests of the workman."
■ -lohn Vine Hull, father of the distinguished Rev. Newman Hall, was
once a drunken disciple of Tom Paine,
and so confirmed was the deep-rooted
craving fer strong drinks that, nfter
his reformation, it required upwards
of 300 phials of a preparation of steel
to eradicate it. When ill of typhus
fever, wine being proposed by his physicians as essential to his recovery, he
promptly replied, "I would rather
die," In his 87th year, while Buffering from the effects of an accident and
an operation which resulted in his
death, >o great was his weakness that
the doctors recommended wine, but he
emphatically groaned out, "Never!
Never!" He was the author of the
■Sinner's Friend, of which nearly 2,000,-
000 copies are in circulation.
General Grant, just before his death,
informed his physician, Dr. Douglas,
"that ho hud declined alcoholic stimulants because ho believed they served
only to heat his system without imparting strength." Physiology, through
the dying general, thus rebuked the
so-called medical science. Such is the
testimony of "one of the greatest men
tho American republic ever produced."
Cardinal Manning states: "I wish
that all trades may prosper etcept oue.
The prosperity that I wish to thnt ono
trade—the manufacture and sale of
intoxicating drinks- is that it should
cease. The evil ought not to be permitted to grow in order thai the police
may be called in to repress it. Of this
he was perfectly curtain, that if thu
great drink trade expanded itself every
year and continued its activity in intoxicating and poisoning thc men of
this country, they would be every yenr
losing their power of self-government
ami the safety which came with it, and
thoso very centers that ought to bo
their safety would become their chief
dangers."
The Lord Archbishop of Canterbury
says; "There is ono dreadful evil over*
spreading the whole lnnd, which makes
havoc of our workingmeti-- the ovil of
Intemperance. Unless you make distinct and positive efforts against it you
will bo neglecting an ovil which is eating out the very heart of society, destroying domestic life nmong onr
working classes, and perhaps doing
greater injury thnn any other cause
that could be named in this ngo."
The Loudon Telegraph says: "Our
revenue may derive somu unholy benefit from thu sale of alcohol, but the
entire trado ia nevertheless a covenant
with sin and death,"
Tha New York Tribumsays; "Mnny
people whu prido themselves on thoir
practicality are wont to sneer at the
opponents of the liquor traflic as mero
'sentimentalist-;.' No doubt there is
much sentiment iu that opposition,
but it is sentiment based upon the
hardest of facts. The truth is that if
nil the other evils that afflict society
an pat together thoy will not nearly
equal in weight and sinister elleots tin-
one enormous and universal mischief
of intemperance. Whenever we turn,
in short, we encounter this subtle and
sinister agency. It is a blight which
lies heavy upon our civilization, and
Whioh will have to be oleared away befon that civilisation ean become an
object of just prido and satisfaction;''
Tho Loudon Tinum, long ago, declared that there was "no way so rapid to increase the wealth of nations
and the morality of society that could
be devised as tho utter annihilation of
the manufacture of ardent spirits, constituting as they doan infinito waste
and an unmixed evil. Drinking bafiles
us, confounds us, shames us, and
mocks us at overy point."
My next will be what judges hnve
said about alcoholic drinks.

The Capture of Vlcksburg.
A CURIOSITY IN SOUTHERN WAR LITERATURE
A very well known and prominent
American resident of Montreal has in
his possession a curiosity which becomes of interest in connection with
the death of Grant, He writes the
Slat as follows:
Thu death of (leiienil Grant recalls
an incident, of the lato war iu the United Slates, which foreshadows the character of the mnn who was to bo the
chief instrument iu bringing the war
to a victorious close aud reuniting the
United States into one nation. Tho
following extracts from the Viekaburg
Citizen of the 2nd of July, 18113, printed upon wall paper, now in my possession, serves to show the spirit of tho
contestants at that time, aud is interesting as a relic of one of tho most
gigantic wars of modern times.
"On tilt, the great Ulysses, the Yankee
generalissimo siminnieil Grant—-has expressed his intention of dining at Viok's-
burg on Saturday next, and celebrating
the 4th of July by a grand dinner, and
so forth.
When asked if he would invite Qon-
eral Joe Johnston to dinner, he said,
"No, for tliere will be a row at the
table." Ulysses must get into the eity
before he dines in it. The way to cook
n rabbit is first to catch the rabbit, etc.,
etc."
Then follows Good Newsi
"Iu devoting a large portion of our
space this morning to federal news
copied froin the Memphis Bulletin of the
'25th, it should he remembered that the
truth in the original news is whitewashed
by the Federal Provost Marshal who desires to hoodwink the poor northern
white slaves. The former editor ot the
BttlkUn being rather pro-southern was
arrested for speaking the truth when
truth was unwelcome to Yankcedom ami
placed m the chain-i-aiig working at
Warrantown, where they now are. This
paper at present is iu distress and is
edited by a pink-nosed, slab-sided, toad-
eating Yankee, who is a lineal descendant of Judas Iscariot and brother get**
main of thc greatest Puritanical, sycophantic, howling scoundrel unhung—
Parson Brownlow. Vet with such a
character, this paper cannot cloak the
fact that General Robt. K Lee has given
Hooker Millory, etc., one of the hest and
soundest whippings on record, and that
the glorious Union is exceedingly weak
in the knees.''
As Viekaburg was captured on tho
4th of July, bofore this issue of the
paper was completed, a printer from
Grant's army added the following:
"Notk.- Two days bring about great
changes. The banner oi the Union floats
over Vicksburg, 'General Grant has
caught the rabbit,' and has dined in
Viekaburg, nud did bring his dinner with
him. Thc Citizen lives to sec it; for thc
last time it appeal's on 'wall paper.' No
moro will it eulogize the luxury of mule
meat and frigasscd kitten—urge Southern
warriors to such diet never more. This
« the last 'wall papor' edition, and is,
excepting this note, from tho types as we
found tlicm. Lt will he valuable hereafter Hf* n ouvi-*.oi+).."

In Germany women do most of tho
menial out-of-door work. Switzerland
is the only country iu continental
Europe where peasant women aro not
obliged to do all the hard work. A
woman was seen recently in Naples
carrying a collin ou her head, chatting
gaily witli a man who walked empty-
handed at her sido. Not uufrequeiitly
a woman aud a cmv aro seen together
pulling a coal cart through tlie streets
of a North German city, a man touching them up—gentlyj to be sure—with
a whip, as he walks beside them. Tn
Denmark it is not unusual to see a
woman high up iu a cherry tree picking thu fruil, while a man lies at tho
foot waiting to placo tho ladder when
sho shnll bo ready to come down with
her burdon. In Upper Austria n correspondent saw a slight and very pretty
young girl carrying the mortar up to
the second storey of a building, while
a man waited to put it in place when
she arrived. Another correspondent
reports having seen a woman in Holland drawing a canal boat, bent nearly
doublo with the leathern harness as
she trudged along tho towpath, a man
sitting at hia ease in the boat amok-
A Lively Package.
Olio day recently an express messenger on the Omaha road took a small
box un board somewhere up in Chippewa County, consigned to a Pennsylvania town. It was billed as "snakes"
aud marked thu samo way, but the
messenger did not heed tho fact. Along
down tho road a ways the messenger,
happening to look up the aisle between
his freight, saw three snakes softly
sliding toward him, at intervals spearing tho air with Iheir forked tongues.
Ho climbed something and got whero
he could seo the box above mentioned,
The cover was loosened, and it jest
seemed to bo the crater of n volcano
of crawling things. The messenger
pulled his safe out, looked tho car, and
did not enter it'again until the train
reached Chicago. There chloroform
in large quantities was introduced, and
about three dozen spotted adders were
gathered among tlio freight.
Ayoub Khan, oue of the aspirants to
tho Afghau throne, is constantly guarded by policemen to prevent his oscapo
from Persia, but the precaution soems
to bo needless, for ho is drunk all the
time. His puffed tip face, says a correspondent, his dull, glassy eyes and
his heavy, sensuous lips show the demoralizing lifo ho leads. His followers see with dismay that he is fast becoming a wreck.
Two of the bride cakes presented to
Princess Beatrice were designed by
the head of the confectionary department of the Queen's kitchen, and wure
made at Windsor. They stood six feet

Causes of death of the six who died:
Chronic Bronchitis 1
Phthisis or Consumption  1
Chronic Alcoholism I
Paralysis :i
Two of thom camo In In a dying condition.
The Hospital has undergone a good denl
of rcpnlrliigdnrlng the yenr. The water
pipes hnvo been fixed; outhouses have
boon moved, and ono built for the reception of the dead until burial. Whitewashing and papering hns been done, making
the placo look bright and cheerful.
I have to thank a number of friends of
the Institution for contributions of pictures, texts, and reading matter of every
description and In large quantities. Also
for the supply of old washed linen which
Is particularly useful. Also; I have to
thank the steward, Mr, Charles Digby, for
tho pains he hns taken In keeping the
wards clean nnd com fort utile: and, also,
for his kindness and attention to the sick.
Before closing my report I wish In suggest that If a fever ward, I.e., to ndmit typhoid fever, could be opened,!!, would mid
vory malcrlnlly to the usefulness ofthe
Institution. I think thut this might, ho
done without much expense by attaching
threo or four rooms to tho building for the
use of the steward anil bis family and using tho wards tip stairs for fever cases.
falHOwlsh to bring boforo your notice
the necessity of more drains being built,
especially one from lhe hospital direct to
tho rivor.
Yours faithfully,
