onr  ArchipelaKo.
A few days ago it was my privilege to spend u short time iu visiting
tbe settlers on several of the islands
between Westminster and Victoria,
and the thought has arisen that some
of your readers might be interested
iu my observations. Taking the
steamer at your eity, I had a most
enjoyable trip, of a very few hours,
to Plumper's Pass, which is, in itself,
a very romantic spot. Situated almost midway between the four cities
of It. C, there is no place in the
province where a larger number of
craft are seen. The steamers plying
between San Francisco and Vancouver, those between Victoria and
Westminster and Vancouver, and
the one between Seattle and Vancouver all go through the " Pass;"
to say nothing of the numerous tugs
with ships in tow and small craft
generally. The pass is a completely
land-locked portion of water. However the winds may blow, to the
east, west, north, or south, all is
calm in this sequestered spot The
scenery is very fine. The steep
banks and rounded hills, broken by
lovely valleys and deep ravines,
mostly clothed with various kinds of
trees, uft'ord a most pleasing landscape. The pass is flanked by two
noble islands, Mayne to the south—
below -which lies Pender—and Gali-
ano to the north. These islands are
of considerable dimensions, and generally hilly and wooded. But then
are, on both of them, a considerable
number of low lands, in the form of
prairie, beaver lands, and alder bottoms, most of which have been already occupied by settlers. Upon
theso patches the soil soems to be
quite fertile, and when well drained,
will produce as good fruit, cereals,
and vegetables, as any( (jjiWiy need
wish; while the hfJlM*' Hgions are'
among our best sheep lands. No
sweeter mutton need be desired than
that fed upon the islands in the Gulf
of Georgia.
Mayne Island is favored with a
school, which " keeps " all the year,
and is a grent boon to the children
of the settlers on that island. It
hus also a ship yard, in which two
Russian Finns—men of most excellent character —are completing
what seems to be a staunch and commodious seal hunter. This is, I believe, the second sailing vessel of size
built on the island. There Jan.a
liquor license on Mayne island, but
I am informed that it has gone under, and I found no mourners at its
grave. Some roads have been opened
up, but nfore are needed to enable
settlers conveniently to reach the
wharf with produce and stoek, Several of these settlers have made substantial improvements. On Village
Buy Mr. John Deacon and his family havo, in a very short space of
time, wrought a wonderful change.
A goodly acreage has been cleared
and a fine dwelling erected. Orchard and ornamental grounds are
being laid out and preparations made
for summer visitors, who will, no
doubt, find in so picturesque a spot
that rest of brain and refreshment of
nerve which many havo to seek at
least once a year. The view at Village Bay is pleasant; the steamers
all pass in view, and good fishing
and shooting are at hand.
Of Galiano Island it is not
necessary to write much, as most
of what has been said of Mayne
Island applies generally to it.
Here the Norwegian fishermen
make their headquarters, and should
do well. One tiling is against them:
thoir products cannot reach Vancouver—their sharpest market—direct,
but have to go to Victoria by one
boat and then to Vancouver by another. This increases the expense
and deteriorates the quality of the
(ish.
Pender Island, for its size, soems
to have the most good land. It is a
perfect Paradise for sheep, and
would be a most desirous location
for raising fruit and vegetables, us
well as grain, were it not for the destruction caused by the deer, which
aro so numerous nnd impudent 'that
root crops^peciully have to bo prelected by palisades about nine feet
high. Tliis should be Nimrods'
heaven 1
For equablo and generally healthful climate; for picturesque scenery;
for fish, fowl, nnd de?r; for good
mutton, One vegetables and luscious
fruit, with >t inure moderate average
of ruin than in other coast regions
of our " glorious provinoe;" commend
ine to the islands of our magnificent
archipelago, stretching from the
Straits tif Hiiro on the south to Seymour Narrows on tlie north, several
of which nre larger and moro numerously populated than thoso I have
sn inipcrfeotly described. These
islands will, in time, become a
fintnve of wealth nnd pleasure to
both settler and tourist.       E. R.

LAST NI6BF8 DESPATCHES.
A   FICKLE PE01-I.K.
LoNUON, April 10.—The haste exhibited by the French deputies to pass
a vote of cunfidenco in the government
•nd the suddenness with which the
memben on both sideubf th» chamber
decided they would unite with the government in revising the constitution,
afforded much amusement to the adherents of General Boulanger, who
regarded the departure with the complacency born of the knowledge of
their power. The chamber is un-'
doubtedly struggling hard to maintain
its position, and, having become thoroughly aroused to the new danger that
threatens the existence of that institution, the members are trying to make
some bid for the popularity of the
franchise. The evil may be warded off
but it may be an exceedingly dillicult
thing for the authorities to restrain
the mob which, with true French fickleness, shouted themselves hoarse not
a long time ago for President Carnot
•nd now have become wild over General Boulanger.
rBIMROSE HAY.
Londos, April 19. — " Primrose
Day," the anniversary of the death of
Lord Beaconstield, is. being celebrated
here very extensively. Primroses are
worn universally. The statue of Lord
Beaconstield near the entrance lo St.
Stephen's palace ii buried under a moss
of Bowers, primroses being the most
conspicuous. To-day's observance of
the occasion is the greatest ever known
in England.
THE ATLANTIC MAIL SEItVICE.
London, April 10.—The Canadian
Gazette explains the action of the Dominion government with respect to the
Atlantic mail service. It says that it
has now given its word that the new
service, by whomsoever supplied, shall
be fully up to the requirements of the
lime. The arrangements with ihe
Imperial government with regard lo
the Pacifio mail service will now proceed, and it is expected that they will
reach a speedy conclusion.
MOTS IN ItOOlAMA.
Buohabxst, April 10.—The riotous
demonstrations of the peasantry are
spreading throughout Roumania. Soldiers have been sent to upwards of 30
villages to quiet riots and put an end to
the numerous murders, robberies, and
other outrages, lt is stated on good
authority that the revolt has reached
auch proportions that the government
is powerless to cope with it.
TfcOFITS SHARKD   WITH  EMPLOYES.
Cincinnati, Ohio, April 19.— A
great manufacturing company, whioh
employs over (1,000,000 capital and
above 200 workmen, to-day made ita
second semi-annual division of profits
with its employees. Six months ago,
when it began this system, it divided
$10,001 between 21 5 employes, while
today it divided about $14,000 between
the same number. The plan thus far
works to the delight of all concerned,
•nd is promoting the best of feeling
between employer and employe. Un

San Fkancisco, Apr. 19.—It ia
stated in marine circles that thero is to
be a race between the Canadian Pacific steamer Parthia and the Oriental
and Occidental ateamer Gaelic on the
return trip to Yokohama and Hong
Kung. Tho Parthia sails from this
port for Vancouvor on Saturday and
will probably start from that port on
her outward voyage the same day that
tho Oaelio leaves here. A letter has
been received from General Traffic
Manager Olds, of the Canadian Pacifio
Railway, iu answer to a petition from
some San Francisco merchants asking
for lower rates un canned goods ana
other California commodities than
thoao being made under the transcontinental association. Mr. Oltls states
thnt Snn Francisco nierclmtiiB lnvn no
reason in cuinplnin of the Canadian
Pacific Railway at it lias enabled them,
by reason of its law rates, to compete
for the trade of several eastern markets, from which tho Pacifio .coast
merchants were previously excluded.
A FOOL MUEDEE.
Littleton, N. H., April 20.— Orria
Steare, a farmer, living near the village of Lisbon, while sitting in hli
dining room last night, reading the
paper in company with hla family, wu
killed by an unknown assassin, who
literally blew the top of his head off
with a load of buckshot, fired through
a window only four feet away. No
reason is assigned for the crime. The
entire country is hunting for the murderer.
A $25,000 FILLY.

laine, Stanford's Filly, so bsdly burned
at the Nalo Alto fire on Tuesday, is
dead.   It was valued at $25,000.

fire resulted in finding the bodies of 3

of tho fire is unknown, though it is believed to have come from the pipe of a

a day of goneral debauch for most of

The new conservative orgon at
Toronto, the Empire, seems to have
struck oil without much boring. It
is not long ngo that this papor
■prang into being, but already it
has suoceeded in becoming interested
in a libel suit, and its manager, Mr.
Oreighton, is under nrrest. The
suit is entered by the premier of
Quebec, upon whoso political cleanness the Empire cast grave suspicion. Tho libelous article is very
much less outrageous than the or
dinary political editorials of the
Mainland Guardian; but there is
this difference—nobody believes
the Guardian, while many persons
may suppose the Emjrire worthy of
confidonco.
Many of our readers must Imvo
beon surprised to learn from . our
telegrams tho other day thot a law
had passed tho senate of the state
of New York prohibiting the manufacture or sale of intoxicating liquors
within that state. This is one of
the most sweeping prohibitory measures ever placed ou tho statute
books of any state, inasmuch as it
will produce a perfect revolution in
some of the largest cities of the
United States. If the net does not
suffer from an attack of veto, and is
faithfully enforced, the- effect of it
will lie watched with the keenest
interest. It is not difficult to predict, either, that this signal victory
will do much towards helping forward the temperanoe reform movement.
Our friend of the Victoria Times
seems most anxious that the Hon.
.Mr. Robson would introduco his
license bill ns a government measure, since it has beon decided that
it oould not como before the houso
as a private bill. It challenges tho
hon. gentleman to do this as a proof
of the sincerity of his desire for
temperance reform. The Times
knows perfectly well, and so does
the Hon. Mr. Robson, that tho house
would not adopt tho bill if it were
regularly beforo it. Tho presont
house, we regret to say, is opposed
to moral reform, lt has a few
members who nre not oblivious to
the moral obligations placed upon
them, but they are very few coin-
pared to the whole. The anxiety of
our cotemporary to see the bill in
traduced as a government measure
arises from a belief thnt it would
surely result in a government defeat, which is something far more
desirable in the eyes of the Times
than a thousand license bills.
The committee on foreign affairs
has recommended the rejection of
the fisheries treaty in the United
States congress. Almost at the
same time tho treaty has been approved by the Oanndian house of
commons. . Its approval at Ottawa
was scarcely unexpected. Tinder
our present system of party government the house of commons would
approve of almost any measure the
government might think fit to place
before it Aside from the fact of
its being a government measure,
however, members of the commons
might honestly conclude that under
the circumstances this treaty was
the best settlement of the question
that could be hoped for, and it would
be best to have the fisheries dispute
adjusted evon if Canada is forced to
mako large concessions in the interest of peace and friendship We
are not going to quarrel with that
view. The treaty is unquestionably
a one-sided affair; but the dispute, if
loft open, would bo "i. constantsource
of danger to the public peace. In
so far as the action of congress is
concerned, there is very little doubt
but it is merely a political dodge.
Mr. Frye is champion of the Maine
fishermen, and does not propose to
alienate the votes of them nnd tho
Irish-Americans in the coming election if he can help it. There an*,
several Fryes in the house nt the
present moment, and they belong to
both parties. When the presidents!
election is over, possibly a different
temper will bo manifested in the
house, and then the treaty may be
reconsidered with better results.
the old gaol site, the condition upon
which tho reserves were surrendered
will be violated. There is no better
•ite in tbe city for a hall than the
old gaol site, and wo think in all
fairness tlio government ought to
convey it to the City corporation for
that purpose. On two ov threo occasions the provincial secretary has
expressed himself in favor of doing
so, and has given the peoplo of this
city reason to expect that this ar
rangeniont would .lie carried out.
Wo hope there is no foundation for
the report that the court house is to
bo erected there.
It has been stated (with how
muoh truth we do not know) that
the government proposes to erect
the new court house on the site of
the old gaol. Some years ago thn
legislature passed a bill giving the
city power to sell a number of the
publio squares, which wero considered neither ornamental nor useful.
AnMmg these were the two reserves
adjoining Toronto Plaoe. But when
the government decided to build a
new gaol, it found itself without a
suitable site. Application was made
to the city, and the two reserves
above referred to were conveyed to
the government on the understanding that they would be used ns a
site (or the new gaol and court
house. The gaol was built on one
of then, and the other still lies va
cant There was un understanding
at the time of the transfer, so it is
said, that if the city ever wished to
erect ft new oity hall, the govornment would convey to it the old

As a remedy for Whooping Cough,
with which many of our children wera
afflicted, wo used, during the past winter, with much sutisfactiou, Ayer'a
Cherry Pectoral. For this affection, we
consider this preparation the most efficacious ol all tlie uitidicines which have
come to our knowledge.—Mary Park-
hurst, Preceptress, Homo for Little

My ohildren have been peculiarly subject to attacks of Croup, and I failed to*
Hnd any effectivo remedy until I commenced administering Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral. This preparation relieves tho
difficulty of breathing and invariably
cures the complaint.—David G. Starks,
Chatham, Columbia Co., N. V.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
in my family for many years, and
have found it especially valuable in
Whooping Cough. Tliis medicine allays
all irritation, prevents in (lamination from
extending to the lungs, and quickly subdues anv tendency to Lung Complaint.

by its action on tho blood, relieves this

Ayer's SarsapariUa has effected, in our
city, many most remarkable cures, in
cases which bullied the efforts of the
most oxporienced physicians. Were it
necessary, £ could give thu names of
many Individuals who havo been cuicrl
by taking this medicine. In my caso it
has worked wonders, relieving me of

which I am acquainted, that affords such

Provlnirlal Legislature.
Tho new city charter was yeBterday
passed through committeo with a few
unimportant amendments, and it is expected to pass the houso without opposition. Iu considering the municipality amendment bill it was decided that
an alien could vote on a trade license
at municipal elections. Hon. Mr. Robson has introduced au amendment to
tho municipal net in which it is proposed to increase tho liquor license fee
in municipalities from ?100 to $500,
and that all licenses issued by municipalities shall contain a clause prohibiting the sale of liquor on Sunday. This
restriction is to apply to restaurant licenses. No now licenses is to be granted without a two-thirds petition of the
residents over 21 years of age living
nearest Uie premises to be licensed.
An act was introduced by Hon. Mr.
Davio for the division of the province
into bailiwicks, to be called counties,
and the appointment of sheriffs therein. The counties are to be ss follows:
Victoria, Westminster, Yale, Cariboo,
Kootenay, and Nanaimo.
Shunting First, Passengers Afterwards.
The local express arrived from Vancouver last night just two hours lato,
with a largo number of disgusted and
discontented passengers on board. The
reason given at the station for tho lateness of tho train, wns, that tho engine
hnd got nil'tho track, nud tho truth
wns uot learned until the train came
iu at 10 o'clock. It appears the local
is expected to do nil the shunting nt
Port Moody, ns well as tho regular
passenuor service between this citv and
Vancouver; and last night the passengers wero sidetracked for two hours
while the shunting was performed.
This sort of thing is certainly vory injudicious, and will, if continued, demoralize the railway passenger service
betwoen tho two cities. At presont
when one gets on the train; either in
this city or Vancouver, he can never
tell within an hour nr two when tho
twenty-five milea will be accomplished,
as, under tho present system, the
freight shunting at Ihe junction teems
to be of more importance than tho
passenger traffic. It is to be hopod
the management will find some other
means of performing tho necessary
shunting, nnd givo us a service that,
under ordinary circumstances, can bo
thoroughly depended on.

Late Despatches,
TYHJMU OS Ot ADSTONE.
London, April 15.—Prof. John Tyil
d»ll in au articlo in tho Union laysi—
'Mr. OladBtono with hia capacity for
verbiage fails to conceal his hick of
wisdom. The liberals know if, yet
follow him iua course of deadly peril
to the nation—a course resolved upon
without reflection or counsel or enn-
trul from the liberal party. The bulk
of fhe party double back upon their
own steps and forswear their old arms.
Not content with running dog like after a lender who thinks too meanly of
them to even consult them, they turn
and rend tho flower of the liberal flock,
somo of whom wero liberal**) uf tlie
si.uiidest fibre at the time when Gladstone quite ns confident of his infallibility then ns now, was industriously
wearing tho shoddy tif usud-up toryism.
It is a consolation to know that Mr.
Gladstone is unlikely to be ngain in
power. Ho hus already dono bis utmost to ruin the country, which ought
to recall the words of Carlyle, 'A minister who, if wicked enough to propose
to sever Ireland from England, deserves to have his head brought to the
block."
FIGHT KKTWKKNTWO OBIT iiUITOILS.
Bowmanville, Apr. 15. —Our usually quiet town was thrown into a state
of excitement about 11 o'clock this
morning, when it became known that
the editors of the Statesman and Sun
—two reform sheets—had been indulging in a pugilistic encounter in Murdoch Broa.' grocery store. The encounter arose through an item in this
week's issue of the Statesman, in which
the editor of the Sun is accused of
stealing a bushel of apples. After a
ten minutes' round they wore separated, the editor of the (Statesman coming
out of tho scrimmage with a bad eyo.
He at once proceeded to police head-
quarters and laid a charge of assault
and battory against tiio Sun man and
the chief of police 1ms pulled both for
disorderly conduct. The entire matter will be ventilated in the courts on
Monday morning, when some interesting developments are expected.
A DltAMATIC DEATH.
New York, April IC—The Herald's
London correspondent says advices
from Melbourne bring news of tbe
dramatic death of Fcderici, the singer
so well-known iu America. He wus
playing at tho Princess Theatre, Melbourne, in the opera of " Faust," personating Mephistopheles. The fiend
aud Faust had to descend on a slide
and disappear from the stage to the
infernal regions. When Foderici's
head was almost oir^ level with the
footlights he seems to havo felt a mortal pang, for ho was seen to grasp the
end of tho open stage, aud a moment
later he fell from the moving taapt on
which he was standing, and expired
while being borne to the green room.
Tho coroner's verdict was death from
heart disease'. Ahhe'burialRov. T. H.
Cioodwiu was so overcome with emotion that he fell in a dead faint beside
the grave, and Chas. Warner, the actor, had to finish tho service.
UA11KIEI.   DUMONT.
MoNREAL, April 16.—A sensation
was caused to-day when it became
known that Gabriel Dumont, the noted Metis leader and Louis Kiel's Lieutenant in the Northwest rebellion, had
arrived in Montreal from New York.
Dumont spoke freely about the main
incidents of the Northwest rebellion.
He aaid ho had only 150 Metis with
him at Batoche, and that in tho famous rush ho had oply, five with him.
Speaking of his encounter with Crozt*
or, he Baid: "That i* ■■ tr.ing »vo met
several mounted policemen, fbio of
them threatened me with hi.*, carabine.
I ran aftor him and threw him from
his horse. I then fired in tho air to
show him that if we were attacked we
could defend ourselves. Shortly afterwards the first shot was tired by the
polico. We then throw ourselves un
them and routed thorn." He denies
that Riel wished to massacre priests,
and .-ays that, on the contrary, he always wished to protect them and was
opposed to tho spilling of blood.
Speaking of General Middleton, Dumont gave the following interesting
piece of information regarding his
plans: "It was Kiel who always prevented us from firing. I know enough
of war to know it was not wise to give
the enemy time to prepare for the renewal of the attack. When iho soldiers fled I wished to pursue them.
They spread over the field of battle in
such a way that it would have been
easy to cut thorn off from Gen. Mid-
dloton. That wns my plan to seize the
general. With Middleton in my power
they would have had to deal with tlio
Metis." Dumont will probably bo in
Montreal some weeks before commencing his tour.
