Onr Piscatorial Interests.
It will scarcely be necessary to
r.mind our readers that British Columbia does not participate in the
advantage-, of the treaty made bo
twean the United States and Cana
da in 1871. Unfortunately lor this
Provinco it did not come into the
Union until some months after the
treaty was made, and the authorities
at Washington were rigid enough to
decide that British Columbia could
not be allowed to come under its
operations. Tha result to this Fro-
Yince is very serious—even mora so
than is generally understood. Our
nearest market is in the United
States, and were that market open
to us under the treaty referred to a
great deal of our fish products would
go there. But when these products
are met by a heavy duty, that mar
ket is practically closed against British Columbia. Take, for instance,
the article of pickled or salted salmon, which is met by a duty of no
less than three dollars a barrel—of
itself a slapping profit. And
with fish in other forms nnd fish
oils, for all of which a ready and
profitable market would be found on
tho other side, provided they could
enter under the provisions of the
treaty of 1871. Then, again, there
is the question of fish breeding.
When the great and unquestiouatile
importance of artificial fish breeding
is considered in connection with the
fishing industry on the Lower I'ra-
s.r, one feels at a loss to understand
why there should be any reluctance
on the part of the Dominion Govern,
ment to establish hatcheries. The
importance of fish-culture is well
understood at Ottawa, and Canada
stands foremost among the nations
in so far as turning that science to
practical account is concerned. There
is not, in the whole Dominion, a
better field for it than this. The
fisheries of the Lower Fraser have
already become one of our principal
industries, and under proper regit
lations and with due attention to
fish culture, there seems no reason
to doubt that it is capable of enormous expansion. In fact, the industry is as yet only iu its infancy.
Amongst the most important subjects demanding attention at Ottawa
aro the two ahove touched upon. Wc
want au open market for our fish iu
the United States, und we want fish-
breeding establishments for stockil
our great fish farm, as well as moro
thorough regulations fur the judicious and profitable managoumnt of
that farm. It will, therefore, be
come the duty of our representative
to bring these subjects before the
Dominion Government in such
way as to secure attention aud
sure prompt action.
Sir Stafford Norlticnat and the
Canadian Pacific Railway.
The January number of the Nineteenth Century Magazine, contains an
article on the Canadian Pacific Hail-
way from the able pan of the abovo
named British statesman. The increased attention which the great
North-west has lately attracted and
the question nf how it shall be utilized to diminish the evils arising
from the overcrowding of population
at home he doeuis a sufficient reason
for placing before the public a short
account of the history of the country
and the scheme for spanning it by a
railway. After giving a very accurate account ot the growth of Confederation and the railway scheme
up to tha conclusion of the arrange,
ment with the Syndicate, he says :—
Enough is known of the salubrity of
the climate nf British Columbia, as
well al of iU resources in gold and
other precious metals, to warrant the
expectation that a great development
of population and trade may soun bo
looked for iu that province.
*      #      #   - #      *       *
It Is reokoneil that when the Canadian Pacific Railway and its branches
are completed, the Company will own
lour thousand miles of railway, aud

NEW WESTMINSTER, B. 0., WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1882.
NUMBER 13
Canada and the world at Mif^o are entitled to ask to what use t^great engine in to bo put.
Tlit answer is limplo, viz.: that it
must be to tho interest of tjje,Company
to act ai the key that is tojjnlock the
great treasure-chest of tlie worth-west.
* * -* * * -fr-
Iti another year emigrwB will ba
conveyed from England toljKcir destination exclusively through British
territory. There is no appreciable
difference between tlie mean temperature of Winnipeg and tliat of Montreal or St. Paul; and Canadians have
before their eyes the success which
litis attended tlie settlement of tho
American Northwest. IV will, of
course, require time for Canada to
settle this vast country, put great
results can be obtained by the cultivation of a small fraction tjjgpof.
After giving the area, population
and wheat yield of Minnesota, the
writer concludes as follows:—
Such an example may well encourage Canada to vigorously prosecute
the development of her resources. As
a matter of fact, the Government and
Company are selling tlie freehold of
lands along the line of railway at ten
shillings an aero to bona tide settlers,
and one-half this sum is returned to
purchasers by the Company for all of
their lands brought under cultivation
within a term of three or four years.
It is early as yet to prophesy, but
indications are not wanting tliat this
policy will be biwi.ee. with suua-as,
and that tho establishment of a gigantic wheat-prL-diiciiig country, rivaling
and perhaps excelling in its fertility
the beat land* of the United .States,
may prove a double benelit to Great
Britain by supplying a new and happy
home fur her distressed or redundant
agricultural ptipuiathni, and by relieving the umthor country from her state
of dependence on it, foreign, however
friendly, nation for her supply of daily
bread. 	
Bret iiartti's Fab.es.
Esop is nowhere how. Bret H.irte
has published a book of fables. Here
aro specimens:—
TUB KINH-HEABTEI) SIItS-ELEPUANT.
A kind-hearted she-elephant, while
walking through the jungle, where the
spicy breezes blow soft o'er Ceylon's
Inle, heedlessly sitfootup'm a partridge,
winch she crushed to death within a
few inches of the nest containing its
callow brood. "Poor little things!"
said the generous mammoth, "I have
been a mother myself, ami my affection
shall atone for the fatal ceusequoucue
of tuy neglect." So saying, she sat
down upon the orphaned birds.
Moral—The above teaches us what
home is without a mother; also, that it
is not every person who should bo intrusted with the care of au orphan
asylum.
THK I'llILOSOrilEH AND TUB SIMPLETON.
A simpleton, having had occasion to
sent himself, sat down mi a pin; whereon he made an outcry unto Jubitcr.
A philosopher who happened to be
holding up a hitching-post in the vicinity, rebuked him, saying: "I can tell
you how to avoid hurting yourself by
sitting down ou pins, and will, if you
will set them up." The simpleton
eagerly accepting the offer, the philosopher swallowed four lingers of thu
rum which perisheth, and replied,
"Never sit down." Ho subsequently
acquired a vast fortune by advertising
for agents, to whom hu guaranteed £3
a week for light and onsy employment
at their homes.
Moral—The wise man saith, "There
is a nigger in tho fence," but tho fool
sendeth on twenty stamps for sample,
and is taken iu.
THK WOLF AND TUB LAMB.
A Wolf one day, drinking from a
running stream, observed a Lamb also
drinking from the same stream, at some
distance from him.
"I havo yet to learn,"said the Wolf,
addressing the Lamb with dignified
severity, "what right you havo to
muddy the stream from which 1 am
drinking."
"Your premises are incorrect," replied the Lamb, with bland politeness,
''for if you will take the trouble to examine the current critically you will
observe that it flows from you to me,
and that any disturbance of sediment
here would be, so far as you are concerned, entirely local."
"Possibly you are right," returned
the Wolf; "but, if I am not mistaken,
you are tho person who, two years ago,
used somo influence against me at the
University."
"Impossible," replied the Lamb,
"two years ago I was not born."
"Ah, well," added tlie Wolf, composedly, "I am wrong again; but it
must convince every intelligent person
who has listened to this conversation
that I am altogether insane, and consequently not responsible for my Actions."
With this remark he at once dispatched the Lamb, and was triumphantly
Acquitted.
Moral—This Fable teaches us how
erroneous may be the popular impression in regard to the Distribution of
Alluvium, and the formation of River
Deltas,     i

Woolen.
"All cry and no wool," exclaimed
the man, new to rural life, after a
vain attempt to ilieer piggy. Much
the same may be said of Columbia's
attempt to possess a woolen mill.
For several years the necessity for
such an industry has been disenssod,
and about a year ago a loud cry was
raised. The legislature offered a
premium, tlie Victoria City Council
supplemented it, and New Westminster did some "crying"about it; but
so far it has been "all cry and no
wool." Anil still the drain upon
the country's wealth goes on at the
rate of hundreds of thousands of
dollars every year. Our farmers
ull their wool at merely nominal
prices, to be manufactured into cloth
in foreign lands remote, and sent
back to us with all the profits nnd
commissions and freights added, and
upon which we must pay an import
duty of about 50 per cent. Surely
something should be done towards
stopping this drain. If nothing better can be done, the people of British Columbia might do worse than
follow the example of other new
colonies and resort to the antiquated
methods of treating wool, aud wear
the old "home-spun" in which many
of their forefathers gloried. But
surely the establishment of a woolen
factory ought not to be beyond the
capacity of a whole province. What
any little municipality in Ontario
can accomplish, and hesitates not in
accomplishing, cannot surely be beyond the reach of this "glorious
province." Such fecklestiess, such
lack of enterprise and ordinary helpfulness utterly shames our country.
Naval Architecture,
As a nation the United States
has no need to "take a hack seat."
Its position is undeniably in tlie
van of civilization. Yet in some
things still considered essential to
the make-tip of a great nation it
lags behind its inferiors. An illustration of this has just transpired
at Washington, which must have
proved {ailing to the national pride;
for whatever may be the defects of
our big neighbor, lack of national
pride can hardly be reckoned as one
of them. The absolute necessity of
bringing the United States navy up
to something like a respectable standard having deeply impressed the
governing minds of the nation, a
Naval Advisory Board was appointed. After solemn deliberation, the
Board has reported a programme
intended, if not calculated, to strike
terror to the hearts of the nations
and cause the American Eagle to
soar higher and scream louder. The
Washington correspondent of a leading New York journal, writing
under date January 21st, says:—
A distinguished British naval officor,
who is thoroughly informed on all
questions involved, was asked to-day
to give his opinion of the plan of tho
Board.
"I do not wish," he said, "to tako
the position of a censorious critic. At
the sumo time, if you want my candid opinion I will give you a few facta
which will enable you to make up
your mind. The idea is tn give the
United States a navy which shall command the respect of the world and
place the naval defence of the United
States ou a modern and adequate footing. Many of the cruisers are to bo
of wood and to have a speed of ten
knots. That is not a modern navy in
any sense of the term. The fastest
ships are to have a speed of fifteen
knots. In other words, at the best
the fastest ships of your new navy
cannot catch and cannot escape whole
fleets of ships which they are designed
to exterminate.
"To judge from their recommendations, the officers composing that
Board are not acquainted with the
facts of modem naval architecture and
warfare. Their report reads as if they
had examined the facts of naval construction for the past generations,
The report ignores the whole development of naval warfare since the
close of your own civil war. See
how inadequate the proposed now
navy is. My Government has designated forty of the fastest steamships
of our mercantile marine to act as
swift cruisers in the event of war.
These ships, as you know, have a
speed nf from sixteen to eighteen
knots. They are the fastest and best
ships afloat, comprising the crack ships
of the Atlantio and the Oriental commercial fleets of Great Britain. These
ships were built with a view to the
possible contingency of war, and so
constructed that they can be, as you
will see, instantly converted into very
serviceable cruisers. Their decks are
prepared for the reception of armaments, and right at hand, so as to be
•xceedingly valuable. This armament
is held already constructed and convenient of access. Each gun carriage
U expressly made for the designated
place on each vessel, and every bolt
and screw is ready, so that upon orders from tho Admiralty tho whole
could be shipped aud the vessel made
ready for action at forty-eight hours'
notice.
"Every new ship that is built is
looked on ns a possible cruiser, and
built, with that emergency in view, and
as tho science of ship building is developed in Great Britain from year to
year, the navy, in fact, is reinforced
by just that advance. What I have
said of England is true, in a measure,
of other maritime European nations.
Germany, France, and Italy have
built merchantmen which could be
readily and would be instantly converted into faster and better cruisers
than the best which the Advisory
Board recommend.
"Now I think you can see from this
statement how I look at tho report of
the Board. The plan is antiquated
and ridiculous."
Editorial Notes.
Coal and fish are now the staple Industrie! of British Columbia and constitute its principal articles of export.
Last year the export of coal was 198,-
323 tons, at $4 per ton, making $793,-
292. The canned salmon exported
during the same period was 177,000
cases, which, nt 95 per case, amounted
to $885,000, The salmon in barrels
would at least bring it up to $900,000.
Thus our last year's export of coal and
fish aggregated about one million nnd
threo quarters, and it mint be remembered that the coal trade was dull during the groater part ot the year.
Should the cuming fishing season prove
to be n good one, the pack should not
fall much short of 250,000 cases, and
there is every reason to expect that
with a brisk coal trade, of which thero
seems every prospect, tho export
should roach 250,000 tons.
A few days ago we published a copy
of the petition circulated in the Delta,
Surrey and Langley municipalities,
praying for the establishment of a
steam ferry, and, in doing so, it was
stated that the petitions had been forwarded to their destination. That was
a mistake. The petitions havo not yet
been forwarded, but will be ns soon us
the members fur tho District proceed
to the cnpital. Wo aro now in a position to state that every settler in the
three municipalities who was afforded
the opportunity signed these petitions,
and that all were afforded the opportunity with tho exception of half a
dozen.in the most remote part of Surry,
who could not very well bo reached in
time; so that the petitions may fairly
be accepted as the unanimous voice of
the people interested iu the matter
residing beyond the river.
In many branches uf the fishing industry Indians answer as well as Chinese. In somo they are better. The
whole of the money paid for Indian
labor remains in the country—goes into circulation. The greater part of
what is paid for Chinese labor goes out
of the country. The Indians are permanent residents of the country. The
Chinese are not, und arc not desired
so to be. Under these circumstances it
is clearly in the true interest uf the
country to utilize Indian labor as much
as possible, and Chinese labor as little
as possible. Could not such representations bo made through tho Indian
Agencies as would induce more Indians
to como here during the fishing season
to engugo in this industry? It has
occurred to us that by a system of
careful selection and apprenticeship a
large number of young Indians might,
with great advantage to themselves
and the industry us well as to the
country, be trained to bo expert in the
various branches of fish canning.
According to Hubbard's Directory,
there aro now 34,274 newspapers and
periodicals published in the world,
with a circulation of 110,000,000 copies, Of these 19,557 are published in
Europe and 12,400 in North America.
There are 1(1,600 of them printed in
English, 7,800 iu German, 3,850 in
French, and 1,000 in Spanish.

nt an altitude of 3,000 feet above the
sea level, on tho lino of the Mexican
Southern Railroad. It is called Allen
City. Around the city nre laid out
and taken up twenty-four coffee farms,
each touching the city plot. There
will be over 3,000,000 coffee trees in
nursery cultivation at this place the
coming year, all to be transplanted
and raised in bearing within the next
four years, All goods, stores and

THE CANADIAN PACI-

of them it must come, and to
which one we care not, for we
are sure good times are coming anyway, and have therefore made great preparation
for enlarging our business, for
at the present time we are
doing a larger business than
we have ever done before, and

make greater efforts to secure
our share of business in the

and we intend extending
them shortly. We have during the past year opened a
Dress-making and Millinery Department,
the success of which has exceeded our expectations.
We have on order direct

in fashionable Millinery,
Flowers, Feathers, Dress
Trimmings, &c, and all the

&c, and have done our utmost to secure a stock that
will surpass anything seen before in this City.
All orders entrusted to us
in this department, will be
filled with despatch and our
prices will be as low as good
work will permit.
In staple and Fancy Dry
Goods, we have a good stock,
and for the spring trade we
have ordered largely from
several London Houses.
We also expect a large consignment of Carpets, Door
Mats, Floor Cloths, Mirrors,
&c. &c.
Kid Gloves we receive direct from Prussels.
FANCY GOODS

Coming Round.- The committee of
the Agricultural Society, at a meeting
on Monday evening, unanimously expressed themselves in favor of the
show being 'held at New Westminster
next year. It was held at Victoria
last year; why not hold it here this
year? "Time about is fair play," you
know.
The Three Judges Hobs db combat.
■On Saturday the Chief Justice fell
and injured his kneo so seriously as to
prevent his coming up to hold court
here. The Colonist describes Mr. Justice Crease as being doubled up with
rheumatism and Mr. Justice Gray so
ill with it as to be confined to his
room.
The C. 1*. R, Contract.—It is now
a fortnight since tho tenders for the
lower section of the Canadian Pacific
Railway in this Province were received,
and the public hereabouts are impa-
tiout to know the result. One would
think the matter should have boon
settled and the contract let ere now.
Bdiinh Mountain.---A letter dated
Quesuolmouth, Jan 28th, says: "Burns
Mountain Quartz Company's interests
aro progressing favorably under the
management of Mr. FalHs, who fcols
confidout that the company havo tho
biggest thing in tho provinco. The
tunnel will be 000 foot long and will
tap the vein 250 feet down."
Death of a Whilom British Columbian.—Undor the proper head will
be found the announcement of the
death, at Brandon, of tho beloved wife
of Mr. D. M. McMillan, late Postmaster at Yale. Deceased was daughter of Mr. Thos. Bartlett, of Chilliwhack, and she, as well as the bereaved
husband, had many friends in this
province.
Lord and Lady Dufferin.—Lord
and Lady Dufferin fill up their leisure
at Constantinople with private theatricals and poetical tableaux. Their
pretty young daughter, Lady Helen
Blackwood, and her brother Terence,
lately appeared in a living copy of the
well-known picture of "Spring," representing a charming pair in a swing.
When tho curtain was lifted a hidden
singer softly sang Gounod's "Priu-
tenvps." The young Black woods have
all tlieir mother's grace and beauty.
The Presbyterian Temporalities
Suit.—The Imperial Privy Council
has reversed the verdict of the Quebec Courts in the Presbyterian Temporalities case. This decision, we be-
lievo, declares invalid the legislation
in Quebec and also in tho other Provinces uniting the Presbyterian
Church of Canada and the Canadian
Church in connection with the Kirk
of Scotland; on tho gownd thatsinco
these Churches extend over the Dominion the Act of Union should bare
been passed by the Dominion Parliament. This was not the opinion of
Sir John A. Macdonald nor of our
ablest lawyers. It will apparently be
necessary to commence the work of
legislation de novo, which cannot be
set about too mon,—Toronto Globe.
The New Post Office.
Ottawa. Feb. 9.—The contract for
the post-office building at Now Westminster has been awarded to Charles
Hryward of yniir city. The figures
lie between 810,000 and $17,000.
The above appeared in yesterday's
Colonist, but we cannot help thinking
thero must be some error. Wo riro
led to believe tenders went, in from
parties hero at much lower figures than
those above quoted.
The Hawaiian Islands.
It is a matter of surprise that the
importance of these islands is not more
fully recognized, occupying, as they do,
the position of stepping-stones Ijotweon
tho two continents. Bishop Willis, of
Honolulu, in au address recently delivered at Chicago, adverted to the important geographical position of those
islands, expressing the belief that they
are destined to play an important part
in the civilization of tho world. Races
from the east and from the west meet
there, attracted bv the fine climate and
the great sugar interest. Chinese are
there who are.owners nf large plantations, and there flourish tlie European
and tho American side by side.
Too Bad! —A very considerable
number of poople having business at
the Couutv Court, which should havo
met here to-day, arrived in the city
yesterday, those from tbo more remote parti of the District having a
hard two days' trip of it. And all for
what? To learn that the three Judges
are hors de combat at Victoria! It's
really too bad!
New Cannkries. — The British
American Packing Company are making preparations for the establishment
of their cannery on the Lower Fraser.
The site chosen is on the slough immediately below Messrs. Adair A* Co.'s
cannery. Mr. Lord and Mr. Young
arrived here from Portland last week
and are making arrangements for the
erection of wharves, buildings and
plant. We understand Mr. Young
will manage tho business, Anothor
cannery is about being established on
the North Arm by Messrs. Fraser,
Windsnr and others. Wo understand
it wilt bo located on or near the valuable property purchased by Mr. Fraser
last year.- We hear tliat Mr. English
is about starting a second cannery further down the river, should he succeed
in making satisfactory arrangements at
San Francisco, of which there is very
little doubt. Thin there are already
projected two, probably three, new
canneries for the Lower Fraser—with
tho possibility of more, And there is
room for mote.
The Fort Mood)' Section.
The tenders for tho contract of tho
Emory and Port Moody section of the
Canada Pacific woro up to-day. There
were 17 tenders. Mr. Montgomery,
of Portland, Oregon, put in a tender
for $3,500,000; MoMullen & Co., of
San Francisco, tendered au oiler of
$3,200,000; Put-cell A Ryan,of Perth,
Out., made an offer to cmistrifct the
road for 82,900,000; Murray & Co.,
of St. Catharines, sent in an otter for
82,8114,000: Messrs: Onderdonk &
Mills, of Now York, ottered to do the
work for §2,080,000; and Charlevoix
Ar Duncan, of Montreal, scut in a
a tender for 82,480,000. It was rumored that there was a bid for $2,800,-
000 which was withdrawn. It is not
known which tender has been accepted, but the suppouitiou ii that the
offer of Charlevoix A* Duncan will bo
accepted.— Globe.
Opium Smoking.
Dr. H. II. Kane is the author of a
small volume tracing the spread of the
habit of opium smoking in the United
States. The facts which he presents
are striking testimony of the Mongol i-
zatiou that is in progress. Ho assigns
tho genesis of this body and soul-destroying vice to San Francisco, some
timo in the year 1808. Since then it
has spread by the routes of travel eastward to Chicago, and -thence Up and
down the continent from New Orleans
tu Boston. Thero is scarcely tt town
of any size now in the country which
has not its opium don. The attendants are in all cases Chinese, for they
alone know how to "cook," as it is
called, tho drug. The doctor proceeds
to describe tbo peculiarly degrading
tendency of opium smoking, the slaves
to the habit actually preferring the low
loathsome dens to comfortable quarters; and he contends that ull who indulge the habit for any length of time
become absolute slaves to it. The picture presented is certainly aulu'ciuntly
revolting.
The Constitutional Muddle.
The Supreme Court gave their decision on Friday last. Each of the
Judges having delivered a separate
judgment, Htm. Mr. Justice Gray
proceeded to read the following epitome
as presenting the conclusions unanimously arrivod at by the Judges:
1. That the Supreme Court is not
a provincial ono within the meaning of
tho 14th sub. s. of sec. 92 of the B. N.
A. Act, 1807.
2. That the local legislature has no
control over its procedure and cannot
legislate sons to prevent suitors having
access to that Court and having their
cases heard and carried on to final adjudication so as tu have an appeal to the
Supreme Court of Canada.
!j. That the local legislature cannot
itself make rules to govern the procedure of the Court or delegate the power
to tlio Lioutenant-Goveruor-in-Couucil
to do so.
4. That tho application of tho Judicial Districts Act to judges appointed
and holding their commissions prior to
its enactment is unconstitutional and
void.
5. That the judges are Dominion,
not Provincial officers.
0. That in these respects the Judicial
Districts Act, the Better Aduiuiistm-
tratioii of Justice Act, 1878, and the
Local Administration of Justice Act,
c. 1, 1880, are ultra vires.
7. That the plain tin iu tho caso is
entitled to have the relief asked for,
and the Court is bound in law to hear
his motion und permit him to proceed
with his cause,
finis.
The Chief Justice said the Court
would re-adopt the judge-made rules
instead of the attorney-geheral-made
rule's. The general order would be
published to-morrow and a full court
might ait if necessary on Monday next.

Barkebville, Fob. 13.—Tlio expectation of a good wash-up iu the Sisters
mine for last week has been realized,
ninety ounces having been takon out
for that period. Owing to thoir ground
being vory difficult to work only a
small wash-up is anticipated for this
week. Other mining news unimportant.
The weather for past few days has
been rather mild though accompanied
by stormy gales which have rendered
the roads in this vicinity impassable,
the only means of communication witn
Stanley being by snowshoes. Arthur
Johnston who fractured his leg some
time ago is about town again. Foster
Anderson is also making good progress
towards recovery. George Cowan, M.

A Now Process for Ores.
The subject is not uninteresting in
this Province, and we shall, therefore,
submit what the Denver Tribune has
to say about it:—
The Waltz Mining Company, with
their principal office at Silver Cliff,
claim to save 90 per cent, of the value
of the ores treated. Tho closed furnace is built upon an incline and arranged iu terraces, the ore, previously
crushed to about tho size of pens (as
ore of this size is more readily heated
than pulverized ore), is removed from
shelf to shelf by automatic scrapers.
During the process of heating, said to
bo accomplished in from forty to eighty
minutes, the base metals are completely desulphurized and oxidized.
The latter takes place by moans of tlie
conditions under which tho ores are
treated, viz., in the absence uf atmospheric air in the presence of oxygen
and in the absence of nitrogen, the
oxygen either evolved from tho ores
themselves, as in thu Boulder and
Buffalo Hunter (containing oxides of
manganese and iron), or by the addition of some oxygenated substance,
should such bo lacking. The conditions under which the oxidization of
the b'iso metals takes place are not
such as to oxidize the noble metals.
After leaving tho furnaco the ore is
pulverized preparatory to introduction
to the amalgamator. Pulverization is
now accomplished with less power and
iu less timo than beforo heating, in
consequence of the disintegration of
the ore by that process. Any amalgamator may bo used, though Professor
Wait/, holds the patent to one consisting of two upright cylinders parallel to
each other, aud resting on a bed-plate.
Those cylinders aro connected by pipes
at top and bottom, tho pipes of sufficient size to permit of the passing of
the pulp from one cylinder to tlio
other. Within each cylinder are
Archimedean screws revolving in opposite directions at a high rate of speed;
the quicksilver is placed iu tho bottom,
reaching above the bottom opening:
the pulp is placed iu each on top of
tho mercury, so that as the screws begin to work they force tho pulp up in
one and down iu the other, and assisted by thu vacuum, produce a sort of
rotary motion, continually changing
tho pulp from one cylinder to the
other and through the body of quicksilver at the bottom, until discharged
into the settler, from this point to be
treated in the ordinary manner.
A Cube for. Headache.—What physician lias ever discovered a cure for

REPLY.
Gentlemen—
I have much pleasure in acceding to
your request conveyed to me in your
requisition, that I would allow myself
to be nominated as a Candidate, at
the ensuing election of a Representative to fill tlie scat now vacant in the
House of Commons. If I should be
elected to till this honorable position,
I will give my support to the present
Government, and in doing so, will
trust that my future course of action
may meet with the approval of my
constituents, as it did on former occasions when I had the honor of representing you in the Legislative Council
of this Colony. If elected, 1 will advocate the early completion of the
Canadian Pacific Railway.
I will urge upon the'Government
the necessity of placing the Dominion
Lands, now held in reserve, in a position so they may be made available
for immediate settlement.
I will endeavor to show the Government the benefit which would be derived from the extension of the Ocean
Mail Service to the Mainland, and to
obtaining greater mail facilities
throughout tlie Province.
As British Columbia has not been
admitted to the benefits of the Washington Treaty, I will urge upon the
Government the justice of allowing an
abatement of Customs duties upon all
material required for the Fisheries,
and will ask for an appropriation for
the establishing of Hatcheries.
The Agricultural, Manufacturing,
and Mining interests will receive my
most careful attention, and if the formation of a Commercial Federation of-
Great Britain and her Colonies, for
their mutual benefit, should conic
under consideration, it will receive
my earnest support.
Owing to the transitory state of the
Dominion, many new questions will
undoubtedly arise: in dealing with
these, I will see that the interests of
my constituents are protected.
I am, Gentlemen,
Your Obedient Servant,

WHAT THE SHEPHERD SAW
A Tale of Four Moonlight Nights.
(Continued,)
"Captain Pentridge!" she exclaimed,
with an emphasis of playful fear,
"how can such n friend of my youth
behave to me as you do! Don't speak
to me so, and stare at me sol Is this
really all you have to say J I sob I
ought not to have come, 'T/was
thoughtlessly done!"
Another breeze broko the thread
of discourse for a time.
"Very well. I perceive you aro
dead and lost to me," he could next
be heard to say,
'"CaptninPentridgo'proves that. As
Ioncelovedyoulloveyou now, Harriet,
without one jot of abatement; but
you are not the woman you were—
you once were honest toward me; and
now you concenl your heart in fictitious
speech. Let it he; I can never see
you again."
"You need not say that in such a
tragedy tone, You may seo mo iu an
ordinary way—why should you not 1
But, of course, not in such a way us
this, I should not have come now
If it had not happened that tho Duke
is away from home, so that there is
nobody to check my erratic impulses."
"When does ho return'/"
"The day after to-morrow, or the
day after that."
"Then meet mo again to-morrow
night,"
"No, Fred, I cannot."
"If you cannot to-morrow night,
you can the night after; one uf tho
two, before he comes, please bestow
on me. Your hand upon it! To-morrow or next night you will see mo to
bid me farewell!" He seized the
duchess' hand.
"No, but Fred—let go my hand!
What do you mean by holding mo so I
If it be love to forget all respect to a
woman's present position in thinking
of her past, then yours may be so,
Frederick. It is not kind and gentle
of you to induce me to come to this
{dace for pity of  you, and then to
mid me here."
"But see me once moro! I have
come two thousand miles to ask it!"
"Oh, I must not! Thoro will be
slanders—Heaven knows what! I
cannot meet yon! For the sake of old
times, don't ask it.'"
"Then own two things to mo: that
you did lore me once, and that your
husband is unkind to you often enough
now to make you think of the time
when you cared for me."
"Yes—I own them both," sho answered faintly. "But owning such as
that tells against me; and I swear the
inference is not true."
"Don't say that, for you havo come
—let me think the reason of your
coining what I liko to think it. It
can do you no harm. Come once
more!"
He still Held her hand. "Very
well, then," she said. "Thus far you
•hall persuade me. I will meet you
to-morrow night or the night after.
Now let me go."
He released hor hand, and they
parted. The duchess ran rapidly down
the hill toward the neighboring mansion of Verricombe Towers, and when
he had watched her out of sight, ho
turned and strode off in the opposite
direction. AU then was as silent and
empty as before.
But only for & moment, When
they had quite departed, another shape
appeared upon the scene, Hu came
from behind the trilithon. He was a
man of stouter build than the first,
and wore the boots and spurs nf a
horseman. Two things wore at onco
obvious from this phenomenon: that
he had watched the interview between
the captain and the duchess; and that,
though he had probably seen every
movement of the couple, including tho
embrace, he had been too remote to
hear the reluctant words of the lady's
convolution—or, indeed, any words
*t all; so that the meeting must havo
exhibited itself to his eye as the assignation of a pair of well-agreed lovers.
But it was necessary that several years
should elapse before the shepherd boy
was old enough to reason out this.
The third individual stood Btill for
a moment, as if in (hep meditation;
he crossed ovor to wlie.ro the lady and
gentleman had stood, and looked at
the ground; then ho too turned and
went away, in a third direction, as
widely divergent as possible from those
taken by the two interlocutors. HU
course was toward tho highway; and a
few minutes afterwards the trot of a
horse might have boon heard upon its
frosty surface, lessoning till it died
away upon the ear.
Tho boy remained in the hut, confronting the trilithon ns if ho expected
yet more actors on the scene, but nobody else appeared. How long ho
stood with his littlo face against the
loophole he hardly knew, but he was
tudely awakened from his reverie hy
a punch in his back, und in the feel of I
it ho familarly recognised tlio stem of j
the old shepherd's crook.
"Blame thy young eyes and limbs, '
BUI Willis—now ynu have let tho fire
out, and you know I want it kept in!
I thought something would go wrong
with you up here, and I couldn't bide
in bed no mnre than thistiledown ou
tho wind, that I could not! Well,
what's happened, Be upon ye I"
"Nothing."
"Ewes all as I left 'em?"
"Yes."
"Any lamb-i want bringing in ?"
"No."
Tho shepherd relit the lire, and
went out among the sheep with n lantern, for the moon was getting low.
Soon he came in again.
"Blame it all—thou'st say that nothing hev happened; and ono ewe hev
twinned, and is like to go off, and
another is dying for want of half an
eye of looking to! I told ye, Bill
Willis, if anything went wrong to
come down and call me; and this is
how you hev done it."
"You Baid I could go to sleep for u
hollerday; and I did."
"Don t you speak to your betters
like that, young man, or you'll come
to the gallowstree! You didn't sloop
all the timo, or you wouldn't have
boon peeping out of that thoro hole!
Now you can go home, and be up here
by breakfast time,   I be mi old man,
and there's old men that deserve well
of the world; but no—I must rest
how I can!"
The older shepherd then lay down
inside the hut, and the boy went down
the hill to tho hamlet where he
dwelt.
SECOND NIOHT.
When tho night drew on tho actions
of tho boy wero almost enough to
slmw that ho was thinking ef the meeting he had witnessed, and of the promise wrung from tho lady that she
would oomo there again. As far as
the sheep-tending arrangements wero
concerned to-night was but a repetition of the tpregoing ono. Between
ten and eleven o'clock the old shepherd withdrew as usual for what sleep
at homo ho might chanco to get without interruption j making up the other
necessary hours nf rest at some time
during tho day; the boy was left
alone,
The frost was the same as tho night
before, except perhaps that it was
a little more severe. The moon shone
as usual, except that it was three-quarters of mi hour later in its course; and
tho hoy's condition was much the
ssnifl, except that ho felt no sleepiness
whatever. Ho felt, too, rather afraid;
but upon thu whole preferred witnessing an assignation of strangers to riming tho risk of being discovered absent
by the old shepherd.
It was before the distant clock of
Verncomo Towers had strtich eleven
that he observed the opening of tho
second act of this midnight drama. It
consisted in the appearance of neither
lover nor duchess, but of the third
figure, the stout man booted and
spurred, who came up from the easterly direction in which ho had retreated the night before. Ho walked once
round tho trilithon, and then advanced
toward the clump concealing the hut,
tho moonlight shining full upon his
face and revealing him to be the duke.
Fear seized upon tho shepherd boy;
the Duke was Jove himself to the
rural population, whom to offend was
starvation, homolessness, and death,
and whom to look at was to be mentally scathed and du in foundered. He
closed tho stove, so that not a spark of
light appeared, and hastily buried himself in tho straw that lay iu a corner.
Tho duke emtio oloao to the clump
of furze and stood by the spot where
his wife and the captain had held their
dialogue; he examined the furze as if
starching for a hiding place; and in
doing so he discovered the hut. The
latter he walked round, and then
looked inside; finding it all teeming
empty, hu entered, closing the door
behind him and taking his place at the
little circular window against which
tbo hoy's faco had been pressed just
before.
Tho duke had not adopted his measures ton rapidly, if his object was
concealment. Almost as soon as he
had stationed himself there eleven
o'clock struck, and the slender young
man who had previously graced the
scene promptly reappeared from the
north quarter of the down. Tho spot
of assignation having, by the accident
of his running forward on the foregoing night, removed itself from the
Devil's Door to the clump of furze,
he instinctively came thither, and
waited for the duchess where he had
met her before.
But a fearful surprise waa in store
for him to-night, as well as for tho
trembling juvenile. At 1m appearance
the duke breathed moro and more
quickly, his breathings being distinctly
audible to the crouching boy. The
young man had hardly paused when
the alert nobleman soft ly opened the
door of the hut, and, stepping around
tho furze, came full upon Captain
Fred.
"You have dishonored her, and you
shall die the death you deserve!" came
to the shepherd's ears, in a harsh,
hollow whisper through the boarding
of the liu.t.
Tho apethetie and taciturn hoy was
excited enough to run tin* risk of
ing mid looking from tlie window.
But he could seo nothing for thu intervening furze boughs, both tho men
having gone round to the side. What
took place in the few following moments ho never exactly knew. He
discerned a portion of n shadow in
quick muscular movement; then there
was the fall of something un the grass;
then there was a stillness.
Two or threo minutes later the duke
became visible round the corner of
the hut dragging by the collar the now
inert body of the second man, The
duke dragged him across the open
space toward the trilithon. Behind
this ruin was a hollow, irregular spot,
overgrown with furze and stunted
thorns, and riddled by the old holes
of badgers, its former inhabitants,
who had now diod put or departed.
The duke vanished into this depression
with his burden, reappearing after the
lapse of a few seconds When he
came forth he dragged nothing behind
him.
He returned to the sido nf the hut,
cK'-ansed something on the grass, and
again put himself nn the watch, though
riot hs before, nisi da the hut, but without, on the shady sido. "Now for the
second!" he said.
It was plain even to the unsophisticated boy, that he now awaited the
other person of the appointment—his
wife, tlio duchess-T-for what purpose
it was terrible lo think. Ho seemed
to be a man of such determined temper that he would scarcely hesitate in
carrying out a course of revenge to
the bitter end. Moreover—though it
was what the shepherd did not perceive—this was all the more probable,
iu that the moody duko was laboring
under thu exaggerated impression
which the sight of the meeting in
dumb show had conveyed.
Tho jealous watcher waited long,
but ho waited in vain. From within
tho hut the boy could hear his occasional exclamations of surprise, as if
he were almost disappointed ut the
failure of his assumption that his
guilty duchess would surely keep tho
tryst. Sometimes ho stepped from
the shade nf the furze into tho moonlight, and held up hi.-t watch to learn
the time.
