Nortli Arm, April lllh, 1888.     dwnpUttl
lit moving ill the soiiato for infer-
mution respecting the experimental
farm, Senator Mclnnes complained
of the delay which had taken place.
He said the act was passed over two
years ago, and a few months thereafter the government deputed Prof.
Saunders to proceed to British Columbia and make a selection of a
suitable site for an   experimental
farm there.   To my personal knowledge, the senator observed, he visited several of the most suitable places
on the island of Vancouver, and also
on the mainland.   He visited the
thriving and prosperous settlement
of tho North Arm of the Fraser
River, tho farm lands in the immediate vicinity of the oity of West
minster,   tho    Ooquitlant,    Maple
Bidge, and the Agassiz settlement,
AH these settlements  are on the
north sido of the Fraser ltiver and
immediately along the line of the
0. P. B.   On the south side of the
river he visited tbo settlements of
Hope, Chilli whack, Sumas, Langley,
anti the South Arm of tbe Fraser,
known as the Delta municipllity,
where, I have no hesitation in saying, one of tho finest agricultural
settlements in Oanada is to bo found.
Prof. Saunders' first visit was in the
fall of 1886.   We wero in hopes at
that timo (hat only a  very  fow
months would be allowed to pass beforo a selection would be made and
a farm established, but another year
passed and nothing was done, and
the same worthy gentleman   was
again despatched to the province on
a similar mission, and revisited all
the places mentioned, and, I may
add, soveral places in the interior of
the province, yet nothing has been
done.   In my judgment the most
suitable by far of any! ofr the lectiops
visited by the professor for that desirable institution is the lower volley of the Fraser, for the following
reasons:   The valley of the .lower
Fraser is the most central and convenient locality ih the province. Its
[climate is a medium between the
sbinewhat warmer climate of Vancouver Island and the more severe
climate of the interior.   It is a mistake to speak of the climate of Brit-'
ish Columbia; the province has an
area of 3*11,000 square miles, nnd
consequently   wo    have    different
climes iu different parts of British
Columbia.   Tho climate on the coast
is different entirely from that of the
intorlor, and t-o^ujiqtW "f^^lflifll,
that climatically,   as 'well as geographically, tho lower valley of the
Fraser is by all odds tbe most suitable, because it would be taken as a
means between the two extremes.
We have nearly three quarters of a
million of prime land in the Fraser
rivor valley, all of which, 1 believe,
will be very largely covered with
choice orchards, something for whioh
the climate and the soil peculiarly
adapted it.   The locality is more
suitable tban any other in the provinoe in that it is on the line of our
transcontinental railway.   The incoming settler could visit it without
any unnecessary delay or expense,
and would at a glance see the farming and horticultural capabilities of
our' young province.     For these
reasons I think I am justified in
stating that the locality whioh I
have mentioned, extending over a
distance of CO miles, is the proper
Slnco for the proposed farm.   A few
ays ago, when my lion, friend, Dr,
Schultz, brought a similar matter before this house, hon. gentlemen will
remember that he laid   particular
stress upon the necessity of establishing this experimental farm in Manitoba, in order to test that oountry
for fruit growing.   I have no hesitation in saying that aa far as tho
hardier fruits are concerned—apples,
pears, plums, cherries, gooseberries,
strawbeiries  and   raspberries—we
can challenge the world,   I believe
that there are no finer fruits grown,
or can be grown anywhere, not only
as to sine but as to quality.   I Urn
not so sanguine about the success of
tho grapo culture.   It is true that in
many portions of British Columbia
we grow grapes, but I am satisfied
thnt if the same attention and care
were paid to the cultivation of the
vine as elsewhere, and proper selections wero made, it would be at
least equal to the most favored portions of Ontario.   Of the eight experimental farms the aot provides
for, I believe I am correct in saying
that only ont) has so far been established, namely the Ottawa, or contral ono.   A great many people in
my province are becoming somewhat
restive and discontented in consequent-oof tho delays that have taken
place in making a selection and bc-
Siniiiiij;   nctunl operations on the
Mnii.   They aro so far away from
tho seat of government, and not
aware of .the slow process of doing
things here, that they cannot understand why it is necessary that two
or three years should be occupied in
making a selection after the visits
of the very able and competent gentleman appointed by the government
to select the site. Some of the extra
restive and dissatisfied spirits are
cruel enough to say that the act was
only passed on the evo of a general
election for a political purpose, and
doubt very much whether the farm
will he established at all, In order
to move that doubt from their minds
the government should lose no moro
time than is absolutely necessary in
making the selection and establishing the farm. Having called. the
attention of the government to this,
natter I hope that I will receive the
answer from'the minister that a
selection has been made, and that
active operations will begin forthwith,
Hon. Mr. Abbott—I am sure my
hon. friend will regret the strictures
he has passed on the government
when I make the answer that I am
nbout to give to the question. The
govornment, as ho correctly states,
took groat pains to ascertain where
the best place for the experimental
farm was, and I believe they decided upon a tract of territory which
has been described by the honorable
gentleman as the hest in British
Columbia for that purpose.. The
answer which I have to give to the
inquiry is as follows: Toe site for
the experimental farm for British
Columbia has been selected adjoining Uie Agassiz station, on the 0 J.
B.; three hundred acres have been
purchased from the Agassis estate.
Preparatory work will commence on
this farm as soon as practicable.

LAST HISHrS OISFATCHIB.
o'bhienin UMBO.      t
London, Msy 6.— Mr.   William
O'Brien has been once more sentenced
to imprisonment. The charge was that
he addrmed an unlawful messing at
loughrea.   Even if it he granted that
m the law in Ireland at present stands,
the meeting wu unlawful, it must be
said that Mr. Balfour does not seem
to a fair minded person to play his
game fairly.   He made a provocative
boast and threw down a challenge.
The Irish leader took up the challenge
and disproved his boast and Mr. Balfour's retort is to clsp him into jail.
This is playing with loaded dice.   The
conditions of the game an not fair and
for a man who has the powers whieh
have been entrusted to the Irish secretary to even utter such a provocation
strikes the majority of Englishmen as
unworthy.    If he wanta to pooh-fooh
bis opponents, he should stick to argument and not call in a resident magistrate when he has got the worst of ib
The consolation is that it is not to the
interest of the government to make
martyrs and that O'Brien will bo as
great a power in prison as out of it
The aame absence of any shadow of opposition is shown by the ridiculous
prosecutions of the pest week. Several
men were fined for shouting " down
with evictions," 12 were sentenced fer
cheering, shouting and groaning,  4
others were ordered to find security
for their good behavior for C months
or go to jail for groaning at the police,
and 2 were fined for calling a constable
"a buckshot warrior."   If Buchprots-
cations are continued it will extinguish
Mr. Balfour in universsl ridicule and
from a home rule point of view the
more he gives of it the bettor.

Thu report^! the *W*\ comtmis-
tion appointed by the Canadian
government in 1886,_fc> enquire into
railway matters and consider wliat
legislation might be necessary to
regulate railway traffic, was presented a few days ago. This report
contains much information that will
be of interest especially to Canadians. The commissioners visited
the Unitod States; and-from personal enquiry and other sources gathered a large number of important
facts. One of the tables presented
in the report shows the rapid development of railway construction
in this country. In 1837 Canada
had only 16 miles of railway; in
1847 this had boen inoreased to 59.
From that time until now the rate
of increase was comparatively rapid,
and in 1860 there were 2,087 miles
in operation; in 1880 it was 6,801; in
1886ithadrisentol0,697. Thecostof
constructing railways in this country has been remarkably small. It
ia the same as in the United States,
and these are .both away below the
cost of construction anywhere else.
In Great Britain the -average cost
por mile is $206,600, in Franoe
Sl ;U,000, in Belgium 8123,400, in
Germany $103,000, in Bussia $97,-
000, in Holland $95,200, in Italy
$94,700, while in Oanada and the
United States it is only $61,000.
Iu both Oanada and tho United
States one is accustomed tp hear
constant complaints about tho heavy
freight rates imposed by the railways. The commissioners have ascertained, however, that freight
rates on Canadian railways .average
lower! than in any other country in
the'world. A comparative statement makes it appear that the
average oharge per ton per mile in
Oanada is only 93 cents. In the
United States it is $1.04, in Holland $1.50, in Belgium $1.57, in
Germany $1.70, in Great Britain
$2; in Fiance $2.14, in Bussia $2.32,
In Italy $2.40. The causes nf these,
cheap rates in Canada, the commissioners .say, are the small cost of
railway construction, and the com-,
petition ef the great water ways and
of the United States railway**.
Our excellent cotemporary of the
Sentinel has no doubt that the discovery lately reported at Kamloops
is k real genuine and valuablo coal
mine. Those who own tho locations
art at work energetically uncovering
their wealth. Two tunnels bave
been constructed a distance of about
30 feet, and it.is reported that they
passed through "several seems of
coal running from a few inches to
throe feet." These developments
have caused immense enthusiasm to
prevail at the interior -metropolis,'1
where claims are being recorded all
ovtr tbe coal mountain, and speculators are constructing wonderful
plans for the disbursement of their
future pro6ts. There is no reason
why eoalrshonjd not he found at
Kamloops. Indeed, the mineral
wealth of British Columbia is so
enormous and so varied, that one
need not be surprised at any announcement of new discoveries.,.
Gold, silver, platinum, copper, anti-.
mony, lead,: iron, and coal have all
been found in paying quantities, and
we have besides mica, slate, lime
stone, and other valuable ores and
rocks, these resources are very
widely distributed throughout   the
iirovince, and some of them are
ound in quantities .that are
quite inexhaustible. It has been
demonstrated long ago that the coal
beds are not by any means confined
to Vanoouver Island. Coal crop-
pings have been found all over the
country, but the depoBits on the
mainland have not yet been Sufficiently examined to enable ono to say
with any degree of certainty what
their actual value may be.,. It is
quito evident, however, tlmt we
have only reached the outside margin of the fields of wealth which Iii:
erery where awaiting development in
this oountry. The only one of our
great resources thnt is being worked
np to anything like its full capacity
is the salmon fishing, But salmon
do Hot include by any moans the
whole of the wealth of the waters.
There are other kinds pf. valuable
fish in abundance whicli have not
yetbaen caught to any extent, but
whieh will Tet become a source of
great wealth to our people. Our
incomparable fir and cedar timber is
beyond computation in quantity,anil

British Columbia are both rich and
•xteiuMs, M his been proved by
actuaj twperiment; hut very little of
tht« has been used, and it it one
kt otJMWde.vttoped resources which,
iomsbaimr, will undoubtedly .add

e.'iJ ... ■»
to the richness and extent of the
mines themselves; but when quart/.
mining hns fairly buguii, there will
be a .vast increase in tbe returns received from that source. ■ Already
some of these mines aro valued at
-millions, and thorn are hundreds of
others whose prospects uro'''no- less
encouraging. In giving his impressions of this province, in a communication to the Canadian Gazette
(London, Eng,), Capt. Oiarke said
"British Columbia must ultimately
become one of the wealthiest provinces in Canada, on account of tlie
value of the national resources yet
to be developed." Looking at the
facts, no one will dispute this declaration.

The writer Brst learned this fact from
two old and e-xp -ritriiced lisliornitrn
wlien out ou a Hulling excursion oue
lovely August day, oil' Mwau llcaoh, New
Je&y,'.. It came iu tho cdureo of a story,
whicli la here given as it was told in tbe
borit,   ■
The fishermen wore serious and quiet
mini; watchful and ready j and I noticed
that they not only used no profane ex-
i pr.-ssiotis themselves, but appeared to be
un uy jil and distressed at tlie occasional
cixp.etives tbat escapod mo under the
ex rsji-TatiiiR excitement of loosing a fine
fish irom the-hook after haulinr-it to tbe
surrrnri*. Somewhat surprised at' do-
iin-aiKir I had npt heen accustomed to
iu "toilers of tho sea," 1 Asked them at
lust ii anything was llie matter.   .
They replied very respectfully, that

y^<fni 'ilenth, which resulted

— Tnio teu.ysari ago we were har.l
'driiiict-rs, swearers,' wild suriineii an.I
I slierinirn.. We never enterod a < Irurcli,
and cared neither for God nor devil.
tan a tine Sabbath morning in August,
1S.7, we started at daylight for thia very
reef of rocks, With plenty of bait, we
looked for four or five hundred weight of
.ica-liiiss, flounders and blacklish. At
lirst we pulled them up as fast as our
hues touched the bottom ; then we liu-l
not n single bite, hitrprised, we looked
up and around, .preparatory to changing
our ground. '■ To our astonishment the
water waa alive with sharks. Wo commenced pulling up onr anchors, when a
srivu.-e llsn rushed to the bow ami bit tho
ropiMii two. ' Then we hoisted sail, but
the moment we put the tteering oar into
thu water, several sharks' beg.iu biting it
into pieces. So .we were compelled to
tako in sails, and drift. We were iu the
midst of a school of sharks two miles long
ami half a mile broad,   They were of ull
sizes, from six feet long to twelve or
fourteen. Tbey swarmed around our
boat, and dashed it one third full of
water with their tails. We .had to bail,
oue with his hat, and tho other with the
bait pail. Every moment som* big (el-
low would put his nose almost on our
uunwale, while his yellow tiger eyes
. tared ferociously at our pale faces. Uno
shark dashed at tbe boat and seized one
of Ihe side planks, and almost shook us
out of our seats. Fortunately his teeth
broke oil', aud away he went with a
bleeding jaw. Inn moment be was toru
Into pieces and devoured, Then tho
school returned to us again.
"We were lur despair, and never ex-
r pectcd to see Shore again. We could not
row, and were drifting out to sea. Finally, Charley uid: "Hill, we are in an awful muss.. Let us seo if God #111 help
us.' , We knelt down, aad I prayed for
help, confessed our sins, aud promised
amendment and repsntauco. Wo had
hardly finished beforo we saw a great
shoot of porpoises. They hurled themselves out of water, jumping twenty feet
at a bound. Soon we were in the midst
of them. The sharks gtarted out to sea,
but these porpoises were to quick for
them. They-nit and tore the sharks
fearfully. Sometimes threo porpoises
' y oiild have hold of one shark. Then
tliiy jumped out of.tlu wator and felt
heavily on these tige**s of tbe ocean,
Thn light continued for miles, and we
Wt re saved. We rowed safely to shore,
I anil became professors of religion, gavo
u,. swearing, drinking and all vices. Wo
I have respect for porpoises, and believe if

they sink into iDBlgiiiili-riiii-ii l,i...iil_ tbe
hriobab tree, which I fo'.n I in many
parts of Western Africa, principally just
south of the Desert nf Sr I,ma. It is notl
distinguished for ilsi-Mi-iu iplinaty hiriiiht,
which rarely rtaclrcs on r ono hundred
feet, but it is the n.ost imposing and
magnificent of Africsn irons. Many, it
is Baid, are over one hundred feet iu* tjir-l
cumference, rising liko a ilwnrf tower-
from twenty to thirty feet, and then
throwing out branches like a miniature
forest to a distance of one hundred feet,
the extremities of the branches bending
toward the ground. 1 ho botanical name
of this peculiar treo is Adansodia diaitiirn
—tho first, in honnr of its discoverer,
Adanson, and tire seiond. deseripiivo ol
its live-parted loaf. Tlio leaves are
largo, abundant mil of a iliirk green
Color, divided into live rarhiiliiig Intiiriei
leaflets. The f'owers arc largo mul while,
banging tOpoduncles of a . aril in l.'ugi h,
which form a striking ci>inia.t to ihe
leaves. The fruit is a mil, pulpy,'dry
substance about the si/.o of a ill roll, inclosed in a long, green pod. The pulp
between the seeds tr stes liko cream of
tartar, and this pulp, na woll aa the
pressed juice from I he leaVes.'is used by
the native .Africans for- liiivoriug their
food. The ju)ce is greatly relished ua a
beverage, and is considered a remedy in
Sutrid lovers and many other e.iiliigioua
isoasos.   > '■*
The baobab is said to fllaln a much
greater ago than any oilier troe, thousands of years being lin/unlcd us the
term of life of some specimens. It has
extraordinary vitality; the lark, which
is regularly stripped nil' to M* nimle into

As many as thirty families have been
found to occupy a single tree. In many
instances, natives who till the ground at
.any great distanco from Hair tribe,
build these hula for nightly iii-ioiniiioiln-
tlon. in travelling nrougn the country
one frequently sees iho trees alive with
baboons and other kinds of the monkey
tribe, busy in collect ng Iho fruit and indulging in console** gambols and chstter;
for this reason it is i oiumonly called tho
monkey bread Ireo. When the tree is
not occupied as a habitation, tha hollow
trunk is i*sed.|ry tho natives iia a
sepulchre for executed crimlnals-tlie
law of tho peoplo denying them the
right of burial-inside of which the
bodies dry up,,andj :lo a grelt extent, resoluble mummies. To a European this
t rco is a marvel. Coming across sno inhabited by monkeys, It.-ia-eiEttamely
dangerous to shoot any unless one is
with a party, for, if any are. wounded,
tho whole colony Inko un the battle; and
moro than onco I found that retreat lu
short order was very necessary.

Finally tho most lioriiOle squeals broko

I threw n can containing water out of

A t'lgkt Will, a Saw-log.
Yesterday whilo two of our amateur
canoeists were out for u paddle, they
espied, at some distance, what looked
like a largo canoe upside down. Imagining the salvage on such a large craft
would he worth the trouble, the canoeists paddled over to take puscssion and
tow it ashore. On drawing near they
discovered tho suppo .ed canoo to bo a
nice large saw-log, and in endeavoring
to make a sharp turn to evade a collision with it the paddlen were upset
and ln a moment found themselves enjoying an involuntary bath in iho
muddy Fraser. After investigating
the bed of the river and noting a few
necessary changes in the channel, they
rose to the surfaco and looked for the
canoe, which, however, had disappeared and only tho saw-log remained as a
means of reaohing land again. Riding
and guiding a ■ aw-log is a science in
itself and can only bo accomplished
after much practice and experience,
along with which must be ft thorough
knowledge of the habits and eccentricities of the log. Our ometcurs were
not expert-log driven and the log refused to be guided peacefully by untutored hands, so tho consequence waa a
running light kept up till shore waa
reached. Sometimea the log was on top
and sometimes the amateurs, but generally tlie log. However, after a prolonged struggle, the cantankeroua fir
waa finally stranded, and the gallant
cannoiats waded triumphantly ashore.
