New Metlakahtla.
The Bosoowits, which srrived at
Victoria the other day, reports at
follows: "The prinopial topic in the
north is the emigration of the Met-
lakalitlitns into Alaskan territory.
They left with their all, being towed
on several trips by the missionary
steamer Glad Tidings, 70 canoes on
one occasion and SO on another.
They have evidently become quite
Americanised, the stars and stripes
being floated to the breeze every
morning, a salute fired from the gun,
and iu the evening ths hand plays
"Hail Columbia." Metlakahtla is
virtually deserted, the Indians
having torn down their houses and
taken them along. About 150 re-
nisin, being composed principally of
the chiefs, their families and the
few followers that remain to them
and the Bishop. It is stated that
none of the chiefs have aocompan
ied the party. Mr. Dunortn having
always mnde it s policy never to
give them any position of importance or trust in the ohuroh or community, and this broke their power over the tribes. The queen who
once reigned supreme, and who, it
is. said, on one notation shot down
two mon on the bench for disobeying her, is now simply a klootch-
man at Fort Simpson with nono
of her former prestige remaining.
Tho great oliief, her husband, it
working on tlio wharf at one dollar
per day. Tho great majority of the
white retidontt are a unit in regrett
ing that the Metlakahtlans have departed, friends snd opponents of
Mr. Duncan alike, There is now
some talk among the Indians around Fort Simpson taking a
similar step to those of Metlakahtla.
It is supposed, however, that this
will   subside.    It is also thought
that the village deserted by Metlakahtlans will be again occupied,
probably by some interior tribe.

LIKELY TO FALL THBOUOH,
Chicaoo, Sept. 13.—There are hints
that the administration's fisheries oommiuion scliemo may fall through entirely. One reason is tlie trouble in
finding men who will go on the commission, and another is the probability
that before the commission got fairly
under way it would be met with a resolution trom tho senate denouncing the
whole business. It cannot be learned
whom the president and Secretary
Bayard invited to net as American
commissioners, but they are all said to
be distinguished. The matter of pay
probably had nothing to do with their
refusal to serve, u there are enough
contingent funds out of which tho teo-
retary of state could squeeze their allowance.

Paris, Sept. 5.—Despatches from
St. Petersburg state that the plant for
the construction of a Russian military
railway from the Caspian Sea to Vladivostok, on the Pacific, drawn up lut
winter by General Obruttcheff, chief .
of the Russian General Staff, and General Annenkoff, of the Russian Engineer corps, have received the final
unction of the Czar, and the whole
work has now been entrusted to General Annenkoff, who built with much
rapidity and brilliant sucoess tho military railway from Krasnovodak, on
the Caspian Sea, to Sarakhiaud, Merv.
It is firmly believed in military circlet
here that this railway, uniting by rail
tho Atlantic and Pacfiic, will be com*
pleted before October 1,1891.
Cementing upon this news the Tempt
says:—"This immense railway system
it directed defensively aud offensively
toward China. Besides its commercial
advantages it will permit Ruuis to
effectively protect, in case of aggression, both the Amour territory, and
the Oussouri territory, which are constantly threatened by the proximity oi
Manchouria and by the fact that Hut-
covite colonies are lott there amid the
yellow-skinued population.   ' '(.
"Moreover, the possibility of rapidly concentrating a Russian army either
near Kuldscha by a branch line from
Omsk or upon the Corean frontier will
give an occasion to the St. Petersburg
Government for profiting by any favorable opportunity to invite either ot
these two countries, especially the
second, where Russia—u is well
known—covets for her Pacific Ocean
fleet a harbor better situated and freer
ice than that of Vladivostok—Port
Luzanef, for instance, or the Bay of
Oucnsan. By means of the new rail:
way Russia will become established in
a moro formidable posiition in Alia.
She will be able to launch forth her
armies at pleasure either upon the frontier of Indie or upon the frontier of
China. She will be able to attach the
English either in Afghanistan or on
the Pacific without it being in the
power of anyone to hinder or inter*
fere with her any way,"

Wants Ihe WorW!
When it was announced a few
days ago that an arrangement had
been finally made by whioh the
Ohina steamships would call at
Esquimalt on the inward and outward voyage, we expressed the opinion that the people of Viotoria
would now be content. In this we
were mistaken. The Colonist, without authority we are sure, claims
that Sir Arthur Blackwood recommended an imperial subsidy to the
line "with a stipulation that Victoria or Esquimalt should be made
the terminus of the route." We
are persuaded that Sir Arthur never
thought ot such a stipulation, and
that noithor the C. P. R. nor tho
steamship company will ever consent to it. A line of steamers from
China with its eastern terminus
eighty miles from the railway might
be perfectly satisfactory to Victoria's
ambition, nut it would be anything
but satisfactory to the railway or to
the people of the mainland. It is
quite evident that there are people
in Viotoria who will not be satisfied
until they get tho whole earth, and
of this class the Colonist seems to
be the organ. Not satisfied with
the concessions made by the company, it proposes to grasp for vory
much more. "Much hoi already
been accomplished by the earnest
efforts of a few men in our midst,"
it says, "but much more remains to
ba done. There is no reason why
the China ships should not discharge
here when they are being coaledP'
There is the programme as laid out
by the Victoria organ of this unspeakably selfish crowd! "The
measure of success so far reached
is large," continues the organ, "but
the agitation cannot cease until the
last point in dispute shall have been
conceded. The future of the island
town seems brighter than ever; but
none should rest on his oars. As
eternal vigilance is the price of liberty, so continual agitation is the
price of the China steamship terminus." And by what means does
the Colonist and its friends propose
to reach this selfish end! It deliberately proposes to magnify the
dangers attending the navigation of
the straits of Georgia! Listen: "As
winter approaches, fogs and storms
will largely increase the liability of
these great ships to detention if not
disaster while threading their way
through the intricate channels that
lie between the island and the mainland, snd it will shortly be found
cheaper, safer and more expeditious
to land everything and to coal here.
It will be the duty of our public
and commercial men and of the
local papers to point this out to the
company." Now, this is carrying
things just a little too far. The
Colonist has developed a wonderful
concern for the safety of the China
steamers which, a few days ago, it
was denouncing and calling upon
the people of Victoria to boycott as
a public enemy! No words could
be too strong to apply to such a
proposal as that which the Colonist
suggests, and it it time for the peo
pie of the mainland te consider
whether they shall sit still and permit the public mind to be poisoned
and their magnificent channels of
navigation libeled without rebuke,
Onr cotemporary appealed to the
boycott in the interest of its narrow
and selfish schemes: the people of
the mainland may find the boycott
a useful weapon against the unworthy tactics of a journal which
deliberately plots for the destruction
of their legitimate shipping interests! At hut session of the provincial legislature a resolution was
proposed asking the federal and imperial authorities to make it a condition of their subsidies that the
Ohina steamer should call at Victoria or Esquimalt on the inward
and outward voyage. This resolution received the support of the
mainland members, including the
vote of the member for this city.
Now, see how the Colonist proposes
to reward our generosity!   It pro.
Cto prevent the China steamers
coming to the mainland at all;
aad to accomplish this it calls upon
the press and the men of influence
tp magnify the dangers of navigation beyond Victoria in the hope
that underwriters may be induced
to put an extra insurance rate on
vessels going to mainland ports! If
the plan proposed by the Colonist
suoceeds, our shipping interests will
receive a blow from whieh they may
never recover. John Webster speaks
of a man whom if you "Give an
inch, he'll take an ell." There seem
to be a good many of this sort in
Victoria, and they need very careful watching. No sooner does the
steamship company agree to let its
ships call there than these people
begin to lay plans to prevont the
steamships going any farther! Nothing oould be more appropriate then
tke memorable words uttered in the
legislature lut session bv Hon. Robt.
Dunsmuir, now president of the
excutive council: "Although 1 live
in the eity (Victoria) I know it is
tb* most sectional and selfish place
in the province. It wants to got
everything and give nothing!" Saepe

ut a bribe of half a guinea, --oim 1 learned
that be*was convoying tasteful little but-
toa holes into tbo houso up his coat
sleeve; nnd lie blushed when lie was
nsked about a tumbler in his bed-room.
Then lm mother found a sis-button
j; ove, size live and a hnlf, -in hit pocket,
which nono of us could Identify. For
some days he had only bad one glove
himself, which lie carried spr-cad out in
irs band to look like two. We could not
tlii ik tbat this was its long-lost com-
punioJH,
J-enrling investigations the glove was
v •placed in Albert's pocket in tho nice
little piece of tissuo-paiier which protected it. Then we watched Albert. Hitherto
he had a lirilr't of leaving the room when
the conver.wtio r took a feminine turn,
but now a change came over him; .He
sat on when his mother talked with his
aunt ovor th.r relative merits of the
waterfall back and the Norfolk blouse,
and It was observer 1 that though h.r pretended to lie raiding his book he was
-really drinking ill the conversation. On
one occasion he came out of his shell in a
remarka'ilo manner. The two ladles
were asking each other what was the
other n in in for tlie waterfall baok, snd
Albert, carried away by his interest ih
.tlio diseitsslo i, murmured "Redingote."
His iiioili -I' anil Iris aunt looked at him
i r iiiiiiiK -merit, which nude Albert turn
both white nml red. Not long afterward
it le.tked nut that be knew what "Bailor
coilam" were, and liked pile pink ones,
Allien even ii 'gall to lake an interest
ill h'.s si.st rs dresses. His sisters are
much younger ih-in himself, and thero
is a story in til < family that about the
lime he was saving up for some coveted
little treasurer he wonld not lot them
kiss him intler sir: pence each. ltwas
statistical information about his sisters
that Alb'i't now asked for iu a casual
sort of way that did not deceive Ids relatives. Once he was discovered; trying to
ascertain for himself how much Gertrude,
who is fourteen, measures around the
waist. Not being accustomed to those
attentions, Gertrude liked them at first;
but it was soon borne in upon her—
though sho was only fourteen -that her
brother was experimenting on her for
private rations of his own. Albert was
also curious to know what size in boots
Gertrude rcimired, nnd smiled to himself when told. Gertrude, who has known
since she was fourteen that sli-j has large
feet, did not like this. It must, I think,
have been a week after the discovery of
the glove iu Albert's (rocket that he
asked his mother, with an artificial yawn,
whtther live and a half was not a small
size in gloves for a lady. Then his mother
aaked me to gn delicately lo.wprk and
find out what was Albert's condition, and
who sho was.'
I thought I would leave it to Albert to
tell me who site was, but I experimented
on him to discover his condition. Nothing, I feel, could have been more delicate
than the way I set about it. The glove
became, so to speak, the means of communication between me and Albert.
J'irst, I removed it Irani his pocket one
day when Albert lay dreaming on the
couch. 1 took the tissue paper off and
then gently returned tho naked glove to
its slumbering owner. That erening
Albert asked me for the kev*oi toe bookcase. This is because I nave literary
leanings and mediate writing a great
book when I settle down and nave time.
Albert, however, so seldom asks for the
key to the book-case—indeed, it is rarely
to be found when wanted—that I In-,
vilcd his confidence as to what book ho
required. To my surprise he said "the
large Sbakespearo." This large Shakespeare Isa sore subject with me. It is In
so many great volumes that the shelf it
rests on frequently gives way. It ia also
gorgeously illustrated. Albert took away
uno of the volumes, and I sat pondering
what he could want it (or. Doubtless
Albert's sudden devotion to Shakespeare
hud something to do with the glove, but
where the connection came it was not
evident. By and by Albert brought the
volume back. When he had gono I
looked through it, but could ditcover
nothing. Next morning Albert's mother
puzzled me by remarking that the
thought that I had taken the tissue paper
oil' the glove. On being asked for an explanation, the said that she had looked
to tee, and that the glove was still in its
wrapper. At this Iwent straight to the
book-ease snd again took down that volume of Shakespeare. It was as I suspected : Albert had torn out the tissue
paper protecting one of the illustratidM
—tho play scene in "Hamlet."
The next experiment I tried was alio s
simple one. lie carried the glove In an
inside pocket, over the spot where Albert
thought his heart was. Taking advantage
of a favorable moment, I got at the coat
and changed the glove to another pooket.
Tlio noxt time I had an opportunity of
fouling for it, it was back in.the old place
again. This happened sevoral timet;
Albert, who is a simple youth for all his
cunning, evidently thinking thst he hsd
imt the glove into the wrong pocket.
Then I hazarded a bolder step. Again
taking possession ol the glove, I dropped
it iu a corner of the drawing-room.
That evening Albert came baok from
the olllce in a perturbed state of mind,
I watched him on his knees in the hall
looking for something, and when he saw
mo ho pretended to be unlacing his
shoes, lie wandered Irom room tb room,
and was subsequently heard flinging his
things about in his bedroom. He said
not a word about his lots, howover, to
anyone. Next morning I was surprised
to see him bright and cheerful. Iwent
into the drawing-room, and, behold, the
glove Was gone. From the way in which
the unsuspecting Albert was Incessantly
putting hit hand Into that inside popkot,
I saw that then waa once more s five-
and-a-half glove in it. I had feared that
Albert would treasure it somewhere else
now, but no, he evidently thought that
ho bad dropped it In tho drawing-room
accidentally perhaps after passionately
gazing on 11 in secret.
But tho awakening came when I concealed tho little gloye in a vase on tho
smoking-room mantelpiece. Albert ran
It to earth in a day and a hall without
saying a word oh the subject to anybody,
unites possibly the housemaid. When
next I felt for it in his pooket it was sot
there. I'rbin that time Albert and I
were playing nt hide-and-seek. Whon I
was not looking Ior the glove he was. I
found It inside the case of his cricket-bat
and dropped It behind the piano. Albert
swelled it out, and soon afterward I got
it under n corner ol the carpet in hia bod-
room,   Then I hid It among some music,
knowing tiiat Albert would look there
last. Ail this timo I did not know if he
s-ispected who' it was that win playing
willi itiin. I do not know now, for we
hire never opened our inin.ls on tlie
subject:
Albert did not find the glove among
the music. When two days had passed
I put it in an oasier place, for Albert was
hearing bis disappointment bravely.
-■Still ho.did not find it. Next I flung it
on the floor of hit bedroom, ami Albert
did not s.reni to see it. I laid it on his
innntlepieca and he let it remain there.
At last it struck me to look in Albert's
pocket again. There was another glove
In it; size six snd a quarter, eight buttons.
Then I went to Albert's mother and
told her ho was cured.
JOHN'S COUNTRY   CUSTOMER,
John Harvey had been a clerk in a
country store in Vermont since hi wns
fifteen years old, and he was now over
twenty. Ho had been reared and educated by his mother, who was no longer
vory young when John was born, and
consequently entered upon the iiillnui-
ties of old ago when her boy had arrived
nt the age of manhood. Her husband
was long since dead.
John was a handsomo country lad,
ai'tivo, obliging and courteous. These
qiialiiioij attracted tho attont on of a New
York me. chant who was spending a summer month in Vermont, and he ofl'ored
him a situation in his store.
A llu-.ri h John's mother knew how
more than lonely she would b.i_ without
.hor boy, she folt bow valuab e this I'liango
would provo to him, and gave hor content
to iris going.
"I know my boy will not forget his
mother" sho snld. "And one thing, my
child, let me impress upon you. You
will bo surrounded by giddy fellow
clerks, many who will look with contempt on tno humbly-cl.id people who
come to buv, and only serve them with
reluetaiiee—perhaps ruden ss. Njver
-forget your mother, and that the humblest
woman may be somebody's dear ol.l
mother. And remember, too, what you
hnvo read in the school reader, that 'aji-
peitraiu-cs are often deceiving,' nut that
a well fille.l purse may lie in tlie pocrwt
of a rusty coat."
That was the mother's advice, and it
turned out that John heeded it.
' The groat iron dry goods shop in Broadway, With its white facade and its counters inside heaped high witii marvellously
beautiful fabrics, was indued it change to
John, uud the richly and astonishingly
dressed women ill great cnntrist to the
country dam s in snub .nnets and gingham gowns that lie hnd been accustomed
to servo.
But now and thon enmo customers
from thu country ; there was no mistaking them. Their dresses had a homemade look, and tit ■ r bonnuti. utterly
lucked the p culinr audacity o: city lints
They preferred tltuir ruquests ia n timid
way, as if fueling lost nnd st niue, and
uncertain if they bad any right iu ao
graii't a store. The clerks sniihiie 1 them
or wore insolent. But to John thu country
faces wero always pleasant, and he was
invariably so noticeably kind to rural
customers that bis counter vory soon became the centre of country custom. Ills
fellow clerks would cry out when there
was an appearance of "country cousins."-—
"(JUatomcrs for you, Harvey!"
But onu day the country women mis-red
ihi very obliging clerk, and upon inquiry
were told that lie had been transferred to
the cloak department. Very well! one
old huly who bad a young girl with her,
said she wanted to buy ii cloak.
So upstairs thoy went—a quaint-looking pair that set the clerks in a giggle, and
they slyly winked as they sent around
tho password: "Harvey'sfriends."
"Good luck to you, Harvey," laughed
one. "Sow's your chance to get rid of
those last year's beaver savories! Maybe
they will go as high as ten dollars."
But if the old lady and hor nioce had
been dowager and princess, they could
not have been more courteously treated
than they wore by John.
"Sho's somebody's dear old motbor, I'll
warrant," hu said to himself, and then in
a pleasant manner he asked tlio old lady
what she would like to tee.
-"Velvet cloaks," she replied, '
John took from the hooks ol the wardrobes cloaks varying in price from fifty
to three hundred dollars. The clerks
kept up their fun at John's oxpense, but
ho did not care.
After considerable dolay In making up
hor mind, the old lady said she wanted
to suu how some furs would look over a
velvet cloak valued at two hundred and
fifty dollars. John readily gratified her
with dressing up n lay figure With ihe
cloak and a four hundred dollar set ol
furs, A ftor a little his customer said they
suited her, and asked how much all would
be. John made a feint ot counting up the
figures, and said it was six hundred and
fifty dollars.
"Very well; I will take them," tho
said, and drawing a rusty pocket-book
from her petticoat proceeded to count out
the money.
As the bills were mostly fives and tons,
they mado a noble pile, nud as John took
thorn from her hand, ho hold thorn purposely to us to exaggerate their appearance and skipped around among the
clerks with great gusto.
"Nearly seven hundred dollars from
my rural friends," he oxolted. "No last
year beavers for them, if you please, and
tho girl is as sweet as tlie rosea and pinka
in my mother's garden."
That day'a ule waa a coup de bonhear
for John Harvey. It gave him an importance in the eyes of his employers,
who increased his salary and placed him
at the head of his department.
Two yoars later ho Wooed and won the
girl "swoot as tho pinks and roses," who
brought him, beside hor sweetness and
beauty, a snug little fortune, which
Boomed all the better from having been
accumulated where the pinks and roses
bloom. Ho then returned to Varment to
remain with his mother during her remaining years, not as a clerk in tho old
country atore, but as its owner and proprietor, and which is today, because of
its. neatness and tasteful ordering, nnd
abundant furnishing, noted tlio country
round as the "best store in the State.''
The villagers, too. like John's, wifo, because of hor simple nnd sweet way; and
it wns hor aunt—the old lady herself—
who told mo the story ot John's good
fortune, which all grow out of well directed kindness to country people.

Silver spoons that have becomo discolored in contact with cooked eggs, may

common salt. A lump of gum camphor
in the closet where silver or plated ware
is kept, will do much toward preventing
tarnish. Coal gas, and the near presence
of rubber in any form, are two things
that cause silver to tarnish quickly. Tho
rubber ring around the neck of a fruit
jar will tarnish a closet full of silver In

such a jar will be found possessed of

ASersible Lunatic—On Friday
last a man named De Lancy M.
Steves who is well known about town,
appeared at the police station and asked
chief Devlin to lock him up as he was
crazy. The chief found that the man
had been drinking heavily nnd feeling
that it would not be Bate to allow him
at large locked the poor fellow up. On
Saturday morning Mr. Atkinson ordered a medical examination to be held
on Steves which was done by Doctors
Trow & McLean. Stoves was so very
sensible on most subjects that the
medical examiners were not fully
satisfied that the man was really insane and remanded him until yesterday to allow the case to develop. Yesterday he was examined again and
found insane on which the doctors
eommited him as a lunatic. Stoves
has been removed to the jail thero
being no room tit present in the asylum.
Geo. Dodge, si\, a well-known citizen
of Emporium, writes that one of his men
(Sam Lewis) whilst working in the woods
so severely sprained his ankle that he
could scarcely get home, but after ono or
two applications of Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil ho was able to go to wolk next
day.      _^_______

Tke Mver Heath.
Capt. Grant, who, with the snag
boat Samson, hat been for tome weeks
engaged in placing the buoys nt the
tandheadt, reports the channel in excellent condition. The lowest water
anywhere it 14 feet. The work of
blocking up the old channel seems to
have accomplished nil that wat expected of it, for it has materially deepened
tht north channel, and the deepening
process still goes on, Not long ago
there was a thallow btr in this channel
about three-quarters of a mile in width.
Thit hat disappeared until it is now
only about two or three hundred yards
wide. We aro glad to see that tendors
are asked for a lot of material with
which to proceed with the work of
damming up the old channel. When
thii work hu been completed Captain
Grant thinks the north channel can
easily be deepened bo ns to admit any
vessel, and when once this is accomplished there will probably be nn more
filling up to speak ol, and very little
shifting.

Vedder Creek Hrldge.
On two different occasions wo have
referred to the importance of having
the bridge over Vedder Creek replaced
without delay so that people may be
able to attend the provincial exhibition.
We find that this work is within Chilliwhack municipality, and it, therefore, a matter with which it it the
business of the municipal council to
deal. Moreover, the -government
agent at this city has in his possession
an official letter in which the following
paragraph occurs: "The council of
Chilliwhack have been authorized to
let a eontract for repairs of Vedder
Creek bridgo to Theo. Wittefor$313 "
Thii letter is dated the 21st April last.
It seems, therefore, that the government nearly six months ago set Apart
$313 for the construction of thii
bridge (whioh really is a municipal
work), and we presume the amount
was judged sufficient to cover the job.
The responsibility for the failure to
bridge Vedder't Creek, therefore,
seems to lie upon the municipality of
Ohilliwhaok, which  will need to ex-
Slain why that work hni not been
one, and why the government grant
of $313 has been permitted so long to
lie unexpended I

' 1'*. The TaMes Turned.
The polico havo lately been furnished with an instrument for catching
unlicensed dogs, which to tho common
obaerver looks like an ordinary scoop
net; and such it really is, for with it
the wily policeman "scoops" in tho
unsuspecting dog. To handle this
new instrument requires considerable
knack and experience, for although it
covers a great deal of ground when In
action, a miss with it is as good as a
mile, and the trusting dog can never
be induced to approach the snare again.
This morning one of our gallant forco,
being iu want of a little excitement,
took tho net and meandered forth to
capture the unlicensed canine that unlawfully roams tlie oity streets. Luck
socmen to be poor, every dog met
with had n tag, and it looked as if tbe
fisherman would return empty handed,
until, when slowly wending hit way
up Mary Btreet, the officer-tuw a small
unlicensed our playing with Mr. J. W.
Harvey's watch dog. The folds of the
net were instantly shaken out, and
with a benevolent smile on his face the
fisherman prepared to make a cast as
soon ns proper rnngo was reached.
Down crime the not with a crash, but
unfortunately tho shot fell short, and
with a howl of terror tho small dog
left for parts unknown. Not Bo with
the watch dog: ho was evidently annoyed at being disturbed so unceremoniously, and before the policeman
could raws bis weapon again the dog
had a few of bis pet grinders neatly
imprinted in the fisherman's leg. Tho
grip was soon relaxed, and the officer
left at a 5-mihute gait for headquarters to await further ordors, the dog
out of politeness kindly escorting him
the greater.part of tho way, a most
unnecessary though delicate attention
on the part of the animal.
