Refcirlnjt to fishery matters, a
Maine papa' enysr— Tho mackernl
are milling insult to injury in aggravating the scurvy trick they played
on American fishermen tho first of
the season with their indecent haste
to get into Canadian waters by huddling inside of that Kunuck dead
line, the three milo limit. At Sour-
is, P. E. I., tho uiackorel catch is
tlio largest evor known, ono man
reeling in ovor 100 Mils, with the
first dip of a small seine, while tho
gaunt and huugry New England
skipper is feverishly haunting the
threo mile limit, and gnashing his
teeth at the cutters which guard it.
At present the machinery of Confederation is completely out of gear.
Taking Manitoba as an example, we
are at issue with the Dominion upon almost every matter of impoit-
ance to us. Our relations on the
public lands question are far from
satisfactory. The matter of our
subsidy demands reconsideration.
The school lands question should be
settled. The timber and minerals
of the province should certainly be
accorded to us. Above all, limits
should lie put upon the exercise of
the veto power, and the repeated assaults upon the acts of our legislature by the exercise of disallowance
should bo throughly discussed with
a view to inagurating a better state
of things.—Winnipeg Free Press.
The magnificence of the scenery
in the Kicking Horse Fans, by
which the Canadian Pacific Railway
crosses the Rocky Mountains, begins as soon as the foot-hills are entered, but reaches its climax when,
at Castle Mountain, we turn to the
west and begin the final ascent of
tho main range. Here comes into
view, off toward the north, the first
of the great glaciers. It is a broad,
crescent-shaped river of ice, its further end concealed behind lofty
yellow clifl's. You seem to be_ almost on a level with it) aad»at "the.
distance of hardly half a dozen miles;
but it is 1500 feet above you, and
almost inaccessible by reason of the
ravines and rocks and forest which
intervene. Sown its back flows a
meandering stream of blue water,
which felt»ver-.lie rfiviit In a ilue
water fall, and came to us in a creek
as white as milk, whioh poured into
the Bow. The forest is not noteworthy until tlie top of the pass
(altitude about S000 feet) is reached,
when the eye looks across miles of
magnificent evergreen trees filling
tho great depression through which
the young Kicking Horse rushes
headlong, from cataract to cataract,
down to the westward. Its real
source is found in the meltings of a
vast field of ice which we can see
atthe head of an alcove between
the two gigantic peaks, the Cathedral and Mt, Stephen, which represent the supreme heights of the
continental divide at this point.
They are magcificent mountains,
and surrounded by scores of monarch.! like themselves—unspeakably
precipitous, rugged, and grand. The
varied stratifications are marked
from afar by the snow which rests
along the ledges barring the naked
faces of the great cliffs, whence drop
Hashing cataracts from step to step
till they plash mistily into some
lovely pool at the foot; while larger
streams flow from broad glaciers
which you may see resting with prodigious weight beneath the sheer
precipices of Mt. Stephen crowned
by glittering masses of solid ice, or
almost equally solid snow, The
exit from the Rookies is mado
through a narrow canyon, whero;tho
Kicking Horse, which has had n
play day for some miles in broad
gravelly bottoms., rushes turbulently
through narrow portals of picturesque red rocks. Then, with the
grandest surprise, you suddenly
emerge upon the valley of the Columbia, and are faco to face with
the long, splendid range of the Selkirks—tho next barrier to be scaled.

London, Aug. la—Wm. Henry
Smith announces that the government
would abandon the tithe rent charge
bill, the technical educational bill, the
Ooschen's revenue collecion bill, the
Irish constabulary bill and other minor
measures. He indicated the measures
that the government intended to proceed with, which include the land allotment bills. Sir Wm. Vernon Har-
court expressed himself satisfied with
the list of bills retained by the government. He noticed it did not mention
tho ooercion bill No. 2 uml he hoped
it had beon dropped. (Cheers from
Irish members). Sir Henry Holland,
colonial secretary, replying to a .question of Sir George Or.mpbell In relation
to a bill passed by the Queensland
government, said the queen had advised that government to at once
assume the sovereignly of New
Guinea. Questions concerniugpioneer
settlers oi the island he uid would be
reserved till the sovereignty wu pro*
proclaimed. They would then be referred tu the administration for report.
In tho report of the land bill Balfour,
chief secretary for Ireland, said ihe
government would accept the house of
lords amendment relating to town
parks.

Ting Sea ftnny;
expressed in Ounalaska for tbe safety
of the revenue cutter Bear, commanded by Capt. M. A. Healy. The Bear,
from her having been one of theGreoly
relief vessels, has acquired great celebrity. She left this harbor early in the
spring with orders to look after the
Arctic U.ot of whalers, but it is reported soon aftor arriving at Ounalaska
she sprang a bad leak near her bow and
water poured into her hold. Capt.
Hesly remained at Ounalaska in the
early days of June and for ten days
repairs wero made. She sprang a leak
again, however, but it was determined
to go north anyway nnd to beach her
for repairs if possible. When she
sailed she was leaking and men had to
be kept ut tho pumps. It is said she
is in no condition to proceed north,
and battle with ice and grave fears are
felt for her. The season has been late
and cold beyond precedent and the ice
Is farther down in Bohring Sea than
ever. Up to Aur. 8th nothing has
been heard of her.

passengers and crew of the Montreal
were taken off the York City, by the
tug Mount iEtna and landed at Queenston. All were accounted for but the
13 persons in the missing boat It is ■
loonud that shortly after the passengers had gono to bed on the night of
the 10th, tho ship being in lat.43 N.
at tho time, they were aronsed by the
alarm of fire. A scene of consteina- .
tion ensued and the passenger* were
greatly terrified The passengers were
dressed and got on deck with but little
appearance of a panic. The fire originated in cotton stored in the after
main hold. Nine streams of water'
were soon working on the flames, and
the course of the vessel was shaped for
New Foundland, 400 miles distant
The flames spread with rapidity and
soon burned with terrifi^Xpree ^trough

The railway commission which
ended its labors' at San Francisco
the other day has thrown some light
upon the praotices to which the
managers of the Central Pacific
Railway have resorted for the pur
pose of benefitting themselves.
There is every reason to believe that
Stanford aim Crocker swindled the
government out of enormous sums
by false representations, and that
members of congress wero often
bribed in the interest of the road.
It iB probable, however, that the
wealth and social influence of these
men will be sufficient to protect
them from prosecution for their
orimos, but the spectacle is not at
all pleasant to contemplate.
From eastern despatches it would
seem that a grave danger threatens
the success of the disallowed Manitoba railway. It is reported that
the 0. P. R. Co. is hastily constructing a short spur across the
line of the Red River Valloy rond,
and will apply for an injunction to
pro-ont i> orawing. Vory likely
the injunction will be granted, and
probably the matter will go into the
courts and remain there for an indefinite time. This will put a stop
to the work of construction, and
may entirely ohange the aspect of
affairs. Either the promoters of
tho road will become discouraged
and abandon it, or the people will
become exasperated and precipitate
a crisis. Either contingency would
be most unfortunate. If public
sentiment in Manitoba has been
fairly represented, the present attitude of the people iB such as to require the exercise of much judgment
and discreet diplomacy on the part
of the federal authorities. One injudicious act may lead to serious
confusion.
considerable trade with the natives,
bringing in for that purpose goods
upon which no duty has been paid.
We should not wonder if both tho
poaching and the smuggling will
now be brought to an end since the
facts have booh made known, and
thore will be another conflict bo
tween Canada and the greedy fishor-
men of Now England.
The policy of granting bonuses
towards the establishment of industries is open to debate, but under
certain circumstances we think it is
a sound, polioy: It lias been said
that an industry which requires a
bonus to nuke it stick is not suited
to tha locality where it is proposed
to be established, and will ultimately
fail. This is doubtless often true,
bnt not always. There are many
enterprises of a profitable kind in
which persons will not embark capital uuless the cost of the first experiment is shared hy the municipality. It is many years since the
establishment of a woollen mill in
this province was agitated; but although the promise of success
seemed excellent, there has been
nothing accomplished until this
year— It "Is very doubtful it any-
woollen mill would have been erected even now without a bonus, and
we believe every citizen of Westminster is well satisfied at having
contributed towards the enterprise.
It is very probable that reduction
and smelting works will be established in this province before many
months. The importance of such
works is shown by the fact that
$7,000 has been set apart as a provincial bonus. The location of these
works may to a large extent be determined by the amount of local
assistance the enterprise can command. Tha three places, probably,
most favorably situated are West
minster, Vancouver and Nanaimo.
Now, Vancouver is proposing a very
substantial bonus, and if Westminster intends to bid for the works
it is time she was moving. We
are of opinion that some effort
should be made in that direction
without delay.
A new cause of conflict over piscatorial wealth has just developed
itself in a totally unexpected quarter. In his report on the exploration of Hudson's Bay Lieut. Gordon
mentions that large quantities of
whale and valuable fish of various
kinds have been taken indiscriiui
nitely in these, waters for many
years, and he thinks then is danger
that some of them will become extinct unless means are adopted for
their protection. The whales are
becoming scarce. It seems that
these fishing grounds, the value ot
whioh has not heretofore been
made known, are occupied almost
entirely by American fishermen.
During the past 30 years 113 whaling vessols from the United States
visited Hudson's Bay, and it is computed that the average value of
eaoh ship's cargo is over 117,000.
Now, Hudson's Bay is indisputably
under Canadian jurisdiction, and
those American fishermen who have
been taking whales in iti waters are
dearly beyond their righto. It is
somewhat singular that while the
United States government is seiz
ing Canadian fishing vessels in
Behring's Sea, ever which it hu no
legal authority, its fishermen are
invadingan inland Canadian sea on
the other side of the continent and
killing off our whalee aa fait as
they can, Lieut Cordon thinks
the Canadian government should
prohibit the killing oi whale* in
Hudson • Bay ior five yean, so as
to enable them to replenish the
waters. At the present rate of destruction he thinks thaywill become
extinct before many yean. Besides
killing whalet these American fishermen an in the habit of doing

About forty years ago the custom of
conuunliiig money in an ont-of-the-way
pluiv, unknown lo nil but its possessor,
wns "ivntly phictieed. This was occa-
sioiK'il ut tlmt timo by the very uncertain,
condition of-tlie wiving bunks. Although
the danger of- failing bunks is, to a largo
extent, u Ih'uigof the past, the practice of
hilling mon-y prevails. Often if tho
owner of the In t Men treasure should dio
without revealing the whereabouts of his
money, it wbul 1 be likely to occasion
great anxiety--itr.il consternation among
expectant relatives.
In the northeastern part of N. Y. city a
case of this nature occurred not many
years ago. An old man who lived in a
very frugal manner, but who was reputed
to be the possessor of a large amount of
money, was rim over at a railroad crossing and killed instantly. He had several
relatives, who, although they were somewhat, dillidunt about acknowledging tho
tie previous to the old man's death, woro
very eager to proclaim it as soon as they
h'.'iird ho had left behind him a considerable store of gold. Tho house in which
tho old man hail lived was a large, shaky
old structure, full of nooks and crevices,
which would seem to be the very place
that a miser would select ns a hoarding
place for his money. Tho house was ransacked from cellar'to garret, every crack
and crovico was explored, and the furniture was taken to pieces, but all in vain,
for at the end of two weeks' vigilant
search, they were no nearer she object of
their search than when thoy began. A
consultation was held, and aftor somo
discussion it was decided to continue' tho
work by proxy, aud a well known private
detective was engaged.
This person looked over tho premises,
and found everything tlmt would be likely to contain the monoy turned inside out,
so thoroughly had the anxious relatives
done their work. Now the question for
the detective to decide was whether the
deceased would have been likely to bury
his wealth. It was necessary to ascertain
the habits of the old man, and to find in
what part of the grounds he was most in
the habit of walking, for it is an established fact that a person who has every
thought concentrated upon a certain
place' will be very likely to visit it as
often as (tossible.
The deceased had kept ono servant, a
very deaf old woman, who had been with
him for a number of years, and sho was
questioned about the habits of her late
master. .She said he rarely left the house,
but would sit all (lay long in his library.
This upset tho theory of tbo money being
burled, and the detective returned to
talw a fresh inventory of tho library.
Tiu relatives hnd givon their attention
to this room at an early stage of tho
search. The book-cases had been moved
out from the wall, overy volume had been
opened and every drawer inspected, so
that no fresh place of concealment suggested itself.
Pondering upon tho mysterious matter
he fixed Ins eyes abstractedly upon the
ceiling, where he saw something that
mado ids heart thump. The ceiling waa
of the usual height, but was made of
wood, put in long strips about eight inches
wide. It evidently liad not been swept
off for years, and a layer of grimy dirt
clung to the boards. What attracted the
detective's attention was a spot near tho
. centre of tho ceiling, on which the dust
did not appear to be as thick aa, on the
rest of the boards. The difference in the
color of this spot was so slight that bniy
an experienced cyo could have detected
it, and on getting under this particular
spot the detective noticed marks in the
dust as though made by tho tips of human
fingers.
There was a solid old table in one corner of the room, which, though used
pretty roughly in the general ransacking,
Won still able to bear the officer's weight.
, Drawing this to the middle of the room,
he found a slight abrasion of the veneering near the centre of the table, like the
marks that would be left by the feet of a
chair. This additional proof was strengthened when the detective put a chair
upon the table, and the feet exactly fitted the scratches on the surface of it.
Getting up on the chair, the searcher
pressed the tips of his fingers in the fwwt
tracks in the dust, and a part of (a board
yielded to the touch like magic, leaving
a hole about eight inches square. Inserting his hand through the opening the
detective felt around and drew forth a
long, narrow tin box. In this was discovered many thousands of dollars in
United States bonds and greenbacks.
The detective pocketed a snug reward.
/LEDGE.
■SUBMARINE CABLES.
One ol the difficulties io early attempts
to establish submarine telegraph lines
was to secure an effective mode ol insul-
I ating the wires.  The tiret subetamre used
' that seemed at all adequate to the purpose was gutta-percha, and this it was
round, must also be protected, A cable
insulated with an outside coat ol guttapercha simply was laid between Dover
and Calais in I860, and worked for one
day only. In tbe following year another
cable wu laid between the twp places, in
which the wires, after being insulated
with gutta-percha, were protected by an
armor of ten heavy wires. This is null in
working order. The general plan of making submarine cables is much tho same.
In the lirst place, if more than one conducting wire is used, each must be insulated from the others. Copper wires are
employed, and each one is coated with
two or more concentric layers of guttapercha. These art then laid together to
form a center strand, and about them all
are laid at least three—more, often four-
layers of gutta-percha, and besides, between these layers, a peculiar insulating
compound, composed of melted gutta-
perclia, wood-tar, and rosin, in applied,
which not only penetrates into the pores
ot the gutta-percha, but also by its adhesiveness unites the layers with each
other. Before these layers are putou
the wires are tested to make Bure that
they are free from defects, and that their
conductivity and insulation aro perfect.
Around the gutta-percha layers a wrapping of tarred hemp, technically called the
bodding, is placed. This hemp is in
strands, and by tho use of a machine
made for the purpose the strands are
i spun around the cable. After tlie. core
has been covered with hemp it passes
through the armoring, by which the outside covering ia puUon. This is either of
Une iron strands, spun into wires, or iron
.wires covered with hemp, or copper
bands. It is necessary that (loop-son
cables should be a light and at tlio same
i time as durable as possible, At first
heavy iron sheathing was used, but it
was apt to break in deep water, and
therefore the wires were substituted.
Though cables must bo mado stronger
for deop-sea water use, because of the
pressure upon them, in the shallower
water near the const they are more liable
to injury from icebergs, the anchors of
vessels, and the attacks of sea animals.
For this-reason the shoro ends arepro-
) vided with a heavier armor than that
which is Used for the line further out.

"I'll go you two cigarettes that they

clerk.
"I'll go von," was the reply.
"All right, ah, anything I can (how

Sadie, how do yon like this odd shade in

"It's Just sweet pretty I"
"Thinkso!"
"Yes, indeed. What an yon going to
use the ribbon for?"
"A bow for Bismarck's collar. The
dear little follow has almost every shade
and color imaginable now, but I thought
I'd seo if then was anything new."
"Aren't the ribbons perfectly lovely
this yer 7"
"OI exquisite I I have over them I"
"What is your favorite shade 7"
"Well, really, I just don't know. They
are all so lovely."
"That's true.  I've half a mind to take

"Oh, the loveliest dark eyes I And such

"Yes; but on the whole, It isn't Just

And they go. Tern Sifting*.
-*-        Her Color than ted.
A young lady who was much worried
about her complexion, asked the advice
of a vegetarian friend as to the best means
of improving her appearance.
"Tako to vegetarianism," said the
friend.
She took wildly; and fed on nothing
but parsnips, wnshed down with copious
draughts oi dandelion tea, for one month.
' Toward the end of the twenty-eighth day
alio waa noarly as pretty in color as buttering. Yet, somehow or other, the tint
didn t please her, and after consulting her
vegetarian friend again, the young lady
subsisted for two months on pickled call-
bage and raspberry vinegar neat i Slowly
but surely her color changed, till she became a good copy of rod sunset. Still not
satisfied, she varied her nourishictpi
more, and existed on strnwbeny ice uoii
turnips for six months, when she assunroc
a lovely pink and white hue. A very
tasty tombstone has just been erected tb
her memory by her vegetarian, friend. *.

Hahrison River Mills.—A correspondent writing from Harrison River
saysr The C. P. R. has landed now
machinery for Messrs. Maitin & Son
to bo placed in tho Harrison River
Mills. The machinery is from tho
Watcrous Engine Works Co. of Brant-
ford, Ont, comprising tt saw mill of
the Company's largest pattern, planing
matching and moulding machines, and
shingle machinery.
Fruit.—The demand for fruit in
the north-west ia increasing, and it
will bo many yours before tho orchards
of British Columbia will bo ablo to
supply that market. Lately many of
our people have boen planting a largo
number of fruit trees, but before these
come to maturity the prpulation of tho
tho north-west will hnve doubled many
times, nud the demand fur fruit will bo
correspondingly increased. The people of British Columbia should be preparing to tako possession of the fruit
market, which naturally belongs to
theni.       '   . .
In Search of Came.
Gaoler Mursby chartered the steamer Gladys last night and proceeded

search was made. About day-light
this morning Mr. Morsby left the
steamer in a canoe for Canoe Pass,
and the steamer returned to the city.
Mr. Morsby has not yet returned.

Tbe First Fish Train.
What It 1'outiilned nnd What It wns
Worth. -Prospects or Mnny More
lo Follow.
lt wus expected that tlie iish train
for the enst would leave this eity yeaterday afternoon, but it was detained
until near 7 o'clock. This is not by
any means the first shipment of canned
salmon from the city. About 10 car
loads had beon sent away previously
in various quantities; but this is the
first iish train, uud it was an event
worthy of being recorded, and a memento of it should bo preserved in the
nrchivos-oi tho city. Until the completion of the C. P. It. all British
Columbia sulmini were sllipiiod south
via Victoria, some going over tlio
various American linen, but the bulk
of them going by water. Tho shipment of lust night indicates that a
chango is about to be made in tho
movement of canned fish. Instead of
going soutli, via Victoria, they aro
likely to como north, via this eity, and
roach the markets through the medium
of the Canadian Pacific Railway. As
the canneries aro nearly all situated
on Fraser River, within easy reach of
this city, the change is in accordance
with the eternal fitness of things—it
is diverting tlie trade from a long and
unnatural route to one that is short and
and direct. The fish train last night
was compoaod of 17 cars, containing
3,200 coses, in each of whioh were 48
tins oi salmon, making in all 153,600
tins; and tho value of the lot was
about 817,000. We understand that
iu a few days anothor large consignment of canned salmon will arrive from
the Fraser canneries for shipment over
tlio C. P. R., and for some months
theso shipments will be frequent. We
nro informed also that about 30,000
cases uf salmon from the cannories of
the northwest coast are expected here
for shipment over the railway. They
will bo brought to Victoria by steamers
plying on that coast, and sent to this
city on the str. Rainbow. The first of
theso northern fish ought tu arrive
shortly. The business of shipping
salmon, it will be seen, promises to be
a considerable item. The pack of the
Fraser and the northwest coast this
season will probably aggregate a good
deal over 1C J,O0 cases, end if even
100,0c ) oome to the C.P.R. it will require about 330 cars to transport them.
The train last night was liberally
decorated with labels upon whioh appeared in large loiters "Canned Salmon," besidos the name of the packing
establishment where they were put up.
Messrs. Bovill Bros, and Notman took
photographs of the train bofore it
started.

Nanaimo, Aug. 18.—News per str.
Olympian say that at Sitka the harbor
is full of schooners and steamers soizod
by the cutter Runs in Behring Sea.
Amongst them nre tho American
schooners Challenge, Lily S. and the
British schoonor W. P. Say ward; and
the British steamers Annie Beck and
Dolphin and Grace, and it is reported
that there aro about fifteen more on
the way from the Behring Sea, which
will arrive in Sitka in a few days. The
U. S. Marshall turned all the Indians
out of the vessels on the beach, without food or money, in a very severe
rain storm, and all the citizens of Sitka got so indignant about it and raised
suoh a cry for humanity, that he was
forced to put t -cm back on their vessels again, where they have comfortable quarters, witii plenty to eat. Some
of tha Indians put on the beach by the
mnrshall held gold medals presented
to thorn by the President of the United

tor Bear left Ounalaska for St. Michael, June 20th, and the officers were
under ordors to take Fuller, the murderer of Archbishop Seghers, in custody at that place mid hold him until
lie could be summoned before a tribunal in the autumn. As the cruise of
the Bear was to extend to the Arctic,
wliere she was to guard the whaling
fleet, Fuller is now probably ou his
return trip. His trial will be pushed
forward aud a speedy -judgment is
looked for by thoso familiar with the
circumstances attending the case.

That "Tocsin of thi Soul, thi Dinner Bell," as Byron calls it, suggests
no pleasing reflection! to the dyspeptic,
bilious sufferer. He partakes, of course,
but the subsequent torment is egregiously
out of proportion io the quantity of food
he eats, which lies undigested, a weight
like lead in his unhappy stomach. There
is a remedy, however, and Its name is
Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Core. No case is entirely hopeless.
