L were'established in 1880, making
' thirty-nine in all. The pastoral
charges have been increased by five,
the total number now being 775.
There aro 300 mission stations, 134
of which are in tho North-west;
and, all told, 800 ministers in active
employment, the number of churches
and stations supplied being 1,783,
an increase of 125 since 1885. Upwards of 410,000 now could be accommodated, whereas in 1885 only
380,000 persons could find sitting
accommodation. The number of
communicants is 136,000, an increase of 9,300; the Sabbath schools
and Bible classes are attended by
108,000 young persons, an increase
of 7,400; and there are 414 missionary associations in the congregations, besides 21 branches of that
wonderful tree, the Woman's Foreign Missionary Society. The finances of the church are also in a flourishing condition. Over 9620,000 is
paid in stipends; the amount expended on churches and manses last
year was $322,000, showing a slight
decrease; while for strictly congregational purposes tho expenditure
was $290,000, an increase of no less
than $54,000. For foreign missions
$50,000 was raised, as against $44,-
000 last year. The total expenditure for all purposes in 188C was
$1,580,000, or $22,000 more than
was spent in 1885. We cannot add
anything to the eloquence cA these
figures. The Presbyterian Ghuroh

The Liberal Leadership.
The leadership of the reform, now
more commonly called the Liberal
party, because it has gone out of the
reform business, has broken down
two strong men in the middle of
their days. Who is to succeed to
the distresses of the position 1 Mr.
Lnurier has been temporarily selected, and should Mr. Blake unhappily
not return to the helm, will, if successful in the meantime, fall into
the permanent leadership. The test
will be a severe one. The party
was demoralised by the national
policy, which brought a now issue
into politics, and placed the party
in the position of espousing a cause
upon which the majority of Canadian Reformers had no deep con
victions. The French Liberals, de
riving their notions more from their
Republican neighbors than from
Bastiat, were all protectionists, and
a large proportion' of the English
Reformers being enterprising manufacturers, or being tempted by pro-
tectinii to become manufacturers,
were lost to the cause. Since then
the Reform party has hod only one
plank, and tbat a negative one,
namely, opposition to governmental
corruption. Mr. Blake's whole
powers have been so much engrossed
in tho unprofitable task of keeping
his party together is to leave him
no opportunity to advance adequate
remedies for the evils he saw so
clearly and denounced so forcibly.
Had Mr. Blake keen able, like
George Brown, to build up or load a
party of positive reform, he would
have had the finest scope for his
grand powers, and his course in
stead of being ono of heart-breaking
disappointment, would have beon
one of triumphant successes. His
successor must either continue his
hopeless and heartless labor of attempting to combine time-servers
and genuine Reformers into one
party, or he must, like Mr. Gladstone, risk the disruption of his
party for the sake of some positive
policy. He will have less to sacrifice than Mr. Gladstone, as there is
less of positive principle to break
with, Mr. Laurier has the winning
manner, the untainted honor, the
personal courage, the impassioned
oloquenoe which should make him a
true people's leader. It remains to
be seen whether these characteristics are united with enough will-
power to enable him to break the
trammels offaineance or donothing-
isni with which his party has been
so long bound, The strength of the
Reform party Inust lie in giving
legal form to the demands of the
popular conscience, and when it
ceases  to do that its usefulness is

MEXICAN POLITICS.
City or Mexico (via Galveston),
June 24.— Diutio officially denies by
authority, the rumors that a cabinet
cmiscxisls. Fur the last fortnight
these reports have been the rage at
the capital, aud most politicians believed that the president intended to
reorganise his cubinot. Newspapers
are ridiculing as absurd the project of
putting Don Carlos on the the throne,
and some of them are printing a list
fur the royal cabinet, to the annoyance of many worthy suvivors of the
Maximilian era. It was announced
that the Britisli minister, Sir Spencer
St. John, would not preside at a jubilee dinner nf the English colony tomorrow. The trouble grows out of an
alleged social slight. There is a lively
row in the embassy, aud Englishmen
whose loyally lo the Queen has hitherto been unquestioned find themselves
termed Fenians and Irish sympathisers.
A NEVADA MINE 1IORROK.
VnioiNiA, Nov., June 24.—In addition to other miners imprisoned there
aro five men imprisoned on the 800
level in the Gould & Curry mine. On
the 400 level in the same mine 4 men
nro imprisoned, making a total of 15
men in all. Those on the 400 level
had only one way to escape. An attempt to reach the men on the 800
level was made by descending through
the Savage incline, but the rescuing
party failed to reaoh them. There is
little hope of thoso on the 400 level
escaping. The windows have been
removed from tho hoisting works and
engineers nre sending down a supply
of fresh air to all levels where miners
are imprisoned. There is a crowd of
2,000 people blocking the street in
front of the hoisting works. Most intense excitement prevails. Tho fire
department is on the ground ready for
service in case the fire should reach
the service. Any attempt to put out
the fire in the miue would prove fruitless, as it is not known at what point
it is located, though it is thought to be
at some point below the 130 lovol.

tiro broko out nt six o'clock last night
below tlio 1,300 ft. level iu the Gould
& Curry mine. The minora on 1,300
lovol ill tlio Best & Belcher who came
up in a cage through the shaft wero
nearly suffocated. Those on the 000
level of tho Gould & Curry escaped
through tlie Savage incline to tho surface. Fifteen other minors wore prevented from escaping by tho dense
smoko. By nine o'clock the signals
censed ond it was feared ill! the men
had perished from suffocation. Five
hours after the fire had broken out
four of the imprisoned men were rescued. Shortly after midnight a rescuing party of about 20 miners, after
several desperate attempts to reaoh the
the men on ono of the levels, finally
found five of them dead. Their names
are Jno. Trounce, Joncey Morgan, R.
0. Bruce, W. O. Carpentor, and Andrew Bean. Thoy were evidently
asphyxiated while endeavoring tn es
cape, as they were found seatttred
on the way leading to the exit of tht
tunnel line. Hercuunean efforts were
being made to reach the other lit
imprisoned men and it ie believed they
will be rescued in a short time. When

Onderdonk's Extras.
Fuller reports of the debate on
what ia called the "Onderdonk Job"
have just come to hand, and one
cannot rise from a perusal of them
without the impression that thero is
ground   for  suspecting imposition.
When   Mr.   Onderdonk had completed his railway contract in this
province, he asked the government
to take off bis hands the whole of
his plant, including a large number
of locomotives and cars,   The government decided that the value of
the plant should be ascertained by
experts.       For   this  purpose   it
chose Mr. Reid, mechanical superintendent of the 0. F. R. at Winnipeg; Mr. Onderdonk chose his foreman,  Mr. Haney; and these two
selected   as   umpire   Mr.   Oiarke,
mechanical superintendent of the
Northern Railway, Toronto.   These
valuators met and made an award of
$72,665 as the value of the plant.
But it seems the chief engineer of
railways discovered that this award
was less than it ought to have been,
and directed the valuators to make
another report, contending that to
the actual value of the plant should
be added the cost of transporting it
to the Pacific coast   One of the
valuators, Mr. Reid, objected to this,
The chief engineer, however, pressed
for a larger award, until Mr. Reid
declared in one of his letters: "The
matter is a fizzle, and it appears we
are to be used as tools."    After
much negotiation, the valuators gave
a  formal  assent  to the increased
award  insisted on by the officials,
the amount being $202,000.    Mr.
Oiarke stated before the committee
of enquiry that this award was not
made on the judgment of the valuators, but  under instructions from
government officials.    The -govern
ment tried to induce the O. P. R. to
purchase the rolling stock, but that
company offered only $60 each for
cars which Onderdonk sold the government  for  $700, and the whole
plant had to be finally transported
to the east at an additional cost of
about $30,000.   It was also pointed
out that after completing hit contract Mr. Onderdonk for a long time
operated the road, for bis own benefit   All this time he was using the
rolling stock, and through numerous
accidents it must have been greatly
demoralized.     It is a pity the committee did not have an opportunity
of hearing the evidence of Mr. Marcus Smith, O. E., on this question,
for no man knows better than he

Prompt Action Needed.
The experience of the steamer
Rithet on the Straits of Georgia
last Wednesday afternoon and night
is something that ought to turn public attention to the necessity of
taking proper precautions against
marine disaster. We have before
voiced the general opinion that this
steamer it not at all suitable for the
service in which the is engaged, and
yet she it the only steamer we have
plying between this city and Victoria, where the Dominion government pays something like $8,000 a
year in subsidies on the supposition
that the service is performed by
competent steamers. It is the opinion of most of the 100 passengers
who came up on the Rithet that
they were on the verge of a catas
trophe which would in all probability
have cost the lives of a great many
people. Storms come up in the
straits with scarcely a whisper of
premonition, and a vesAl not properly equipped to meet them is never
safe to cross. Every person possessing any nautical knowledge knows
that a stern-wheel flat bottomed
boat like the Rithet cannot with
safety encounter such storms as are
frequently experienced on the
straits, and we have always been of
Z'nion that the marine authorities
uid not permit tuch steamers to
take tbe desperate ritkt incident to
thii route. It was a common remark on the streets yesterday that
the Rithet would venture once too
often across the straits, and that
unless withdrawn from the route
she would some day become the
coffin of her guests. The effect of
public distrust, we have already
shown, U to destroy the Fraser
River route and force passenger
traffic round by the way of Burrard
Inlet. The O. P. N. Oo. rum both
routes, and it doea not care, apparently, which route is taken by persons travelling between this oity
and Victoria, ai in any case it gets
the fare. If the company continues
to disregard public protests, and
persists in maintaining the service
as it has been conducted for the
put. few months, we counsel the
people of thii oity and district to
consider what meant may be taken
to provide a new service that will
meet the ciroumstancet and command public confidence. This is a
matter in whioh prompt and
vigorous action should bo taken.
Human life it too valuable to be
placed needleasly in jeopardy, and
the maintenance of an efficient service on the tower Fraser is of great
importance both to thii city and
district It ii a route which need
not go bagging for a service either,
(or it haa been one of tho beat paying *t««mbti(i», route* fa British
Columbia.
Hugh Miller's Turning Point.
In laying dowu tho foundation-stone
of one of the larger houses built this
year by Uncle David and his partner,
tho workmen had a royal 'founding
pint," and two wholo glasses of the
whiskey came to my share. A full-
grown man would not have deemed a
gill of usquebaugh an overdose, but it
was considerably too much forme; and
when the party broke up, and I got
home to my books, I found, as I opened the pages of a favorite author, the
letters dancing before my eyes, and
that I could no longer master the
sense. I liave the volume at present
before me—a small edition of the
"Essays of Bacon," a good deal worn
at the corners by the friction of tho
pocket—for of Bacon I never tired.
The condition into which I had brought
myself was, I felt, one of degradation.
I had sunk, by my own act, for the
time, to a lower level of intelligence
than that on which it was my privilege
to be placed; and though the state
could have been no very favorable ono
for forming a resolution, I in that hour
determined that I would never again
sacrifice my capacity of intellectual
enjoyment to a drinking usage; and,
with God's help, I was enabled to hold
by the determination. * * * I see,
in looking back on this my first year of
labor, a dangerous point, at which, in
my attempt to escape from the sense
of depression and fatigue, tho craving
appetite of tho confirmed tippler might
have been formed.—Hugh Miller.
Temperance sentiment.
Can anything be more strange, more
disheartening, than tho -way in which
men, intelligent on many subjects and
with tender hearts, will talk about
this monster evil, and tho indifference
they will manifest towards every effort
to restrain or remove it? Could it possibly be more apparent that intemperance works evil and only evil, and
that continually? But let us wait.
Its doom is at hand. It is marvellous
how a turn in the road opens wholo
landscapes of truth to men, and lots
them see what no logic could convince
thorn of. Such changes make us say
with the ancient patriarch, "Behold,
God eialteth His powor; who tonch-
eth like him?" And yet agitation and
argument have their value, us they
prepare men for these revelations of
truth and duty. Statistics of rum's
evil must still be published, the relations of intemperance to crime und
pauperism must be made manifest, tho
drain upon the nation's wealth must
be made apparent, the ruin it works
upon body, mind and soul must be set
forth. We must not weary iu the use
of any lawful means in all churty and
candor. It may be slowly sowing tho
teed which God will quicken in a day.
And some of tho golden sheaves of
the harvest will be ours.—Ex.

Gov. Beaver, of Pennsylvania, is following the commendable example of
Gov. Lounsbury of Connecticut, in
forbidding the members of his staff to
indulge in intoxicating drinks at official

Seneca says: To suppose it possible
for a man to take much wine and retain a right frame of mind is as bad as
to argue thnt he mny take poison and
not die, or the juice of tlie blook poppy
and not sleep.
In accordance with his request the

from the darkey crew, the happiest hour
In the Improvident, "devil-may-care"
existence ot the Mississippi Hirer roustabout Is at hand.
Boosting on railing, rapt colls and
cotton bales on the rear deck like a convention ot dilapidated scarecrows, they
are watting to respond to the farewell
songs of friends and sweethearts congregated on the levee. -
' Farewell, brodere, If yo's girlne to' to

wills out a dusky maiden on the short,
and

trills a thin tenor from the decks IBd

swills the refrain.

thrllllngly announces the heavy bus,
while the dual crowd breaks Into united
rhythmical sway at tho rousing refrain.
'Walk that Loo.   Oht MunLool
Abl ah! ah! heahwegol
Fo' we ah gwlne fo' to leabs you, goodbye, good-byeI
Fo' we ah gwlne fo' to leabs 70', goodbye, Liu Jane."
The echo scarcely dies away when a
rival songster on the shore begins:
" Monkey drees In soldier olo'se;
All cross obex to Jordan!
Went out in do woods to' to dCUl do

Oh! Ja-ru-sa-lem!
Jay bird sat on ole hickory limb;

And then the exulted crowd sweeps
with wild enthusiasm Into:
" Shine on I Shine on! AU cross ober

Then shine on! Shine on)  Oh! Ja-ru-

Kext a woman's figure breaks out
from the levee crowd with waving arms
and swaying body and proclaims In a
ringing treble:
' Oh, I long fo' to reaoh dtt heavenly

Then tht responsive chorus swells out,
and again tht lasso pro/undo of the crew
determine! that the sisters shall not
have t monopoly of tht solo parts, so ha
breaks |a and erushlngly refers to the
erratic nothsr of them all:

Glbichbk,— Gleichen hu improved
considerably during the last year. A
nice little church erected through the
energy of the Rev, Mr. Tim, shows
the march of civilization. Mr. William's farm looks well, although like
the rest of the country it lias suffered
considerably from the drought. He
hss this year about 60 acres all told
under cultivation. The crop consist*
of wheat, peas, oats flax, potatoes,
garden stuff and roots. On tlie field
where wheat was raised fust year he
hu sown flax, and he is likely to have
a double crop. Tlio wheat which
shelled in the harvesting Inst your has
come up and is doiipj very well al
though it is necessarily thin, but when
a crop of volunteer wheat does this
well we see no reason why fall wheat
cannot be grown to advantage. Several other parties have nice little crops
of grain in the neighborhood. Mr.
Flaherty hu a nice Utile flower and
vegetable garden alongside of tho rail-
way station. Meurs. Knight and Hill
are just finishing a fine large store and
a concert will be hold in it on Thursday
night. The reading room is well supplied with books, periodicals and

Altogether Gleichen is making very
satisfactory progress and will doubtless yet become the centre of quite a
forming community.—CalgaryTrihuic.

Too Much. Splrtt8lnFra.ee.     Businegs Chancel
Paris, June 24.—The senate to-day
discussed the report of the committee
on the consumption of spirits. M.
Claude said that the committee had
come to the conclusion tbat drinking
spirits in France had reached such a
height as to be a social danger. Alcohol wu essentially a dutiable article,
and it behooves the state to prevent its
excessive consumption, at the ume
timo securing tho utmost profit
to the treasury, the suppression of
adulteration, and other frauds. M.
Roviera approved the committee's report. He said the government would
prosecute fraud wherever discovered,
and that th* revenue eolleelon would
be instrueted to take vigorous action
against imposition,

To Assist Nature most effectually In
her efforts to throw off or resist serious

this is impracticable by the use of ordinary remedies, it proves an easy task
when Northrop ft Lyman's Vegetable
