Cost of a Big War Ship.
A return has beon issued in the
form of a Parliamentary paper containing tables showing tho principal
particulars of tho original legends of
tho Imperieuse, Benbow and Oolling-
wood when the designs were completed, conpared with ths corresponding particulars of the vessels
as finished, for explanations of any
changes, with the authority therefor,
together with the estimated and actual cost of the Imperieuse. The
chief point of interest in this return
is found in tho statistics dealing
with the estimated and actual cost
of the Imperieuse. From them it
appears that the original estimate
was £454,821, and, with value of
innstB, etc., and sea stores not provided for, counted at £13,832; this
makes a total of £468,653: On the
other hand, the expeniture to September, 1886, the date of completion, amounted to £541,466, und
tho subsequent expenditure for alterations and making good defects
after trial cruise, to £18,959—in all
£91,972 more than the original estimate. The above figures do not
include establishment and incidental expenses of the dockyards nor
tho cost of the ship's armament—

Woman as Detectives.
One of Pinkerton's old detectives
recently gave a New York Mail
and Express reporter some interesting (acts about finding persons by
description. "Men," said he, "as a
rule, are not so close observers as
woman, and do not give what I call
detective descriptions of persons. If
you ask a man to describe a per
son he gives a general description
that will suit a thousand or so, having the same color of hair and eyes.
I remember trying to capture a
woman onco who was in league
with some hiding counterfeiters.
Several men discovered her in a general way and I watched carefully
the train she wus'supposed to come
into the city oh every day. I found
<•-»■>,itnmn on overv "»••■ •■•-'
could have answered the description. After a week of failure and
chagrin I found a woman who had
Been her and knew "enough to give
me a description. Her description
had a strong detective point, only
one, but enough. It was the peculiar way the counterfeiter did up
her hair. That cue brought me suo
cess the next day, for I arrested the
right woman, through a woman's
description. Another woman whom
I arrested through a description furnished by one of her own sex was
recognized by the way she raised
her eyelids. She had a flirty way
of looking out of her eyes, and her
observing sister of course noticed
that- peculiarity af once. The first
thing that strikes a woman about
another person is almost invariably
a salient feature, and one which can
berecoginzed easily. Salient features are not so apt to strike a man;
he is less observant. Once I hunted
a man with his right thumb off for
two weeks. I saw him every day,
but he had a false thumb on, so I
did not know him. But he was a
slick chap and most wonderful in
assuming disguises. I had him cornered in a place once, as I thought,
when a middle-aged man came out
and asked what was the matter,
and wanted to know if he could
help me. I wanted his help and
asked him to stand at a certain
door, That was the last of him that
night; he was the man I was looking
for and had cleverly disguised himself. "It is easy to find a man when
you have once seen him and have
his features indeljbly impressed upon your memory. But in a description you can not so easily transfer
the photograph to another's mind.
Only one thing is necessary to say
about persons in order to identify
them if it iB some prominent characteristic. If you will study a human face closely you will find it has
something in it distinctive and different from others. The thing is to
describe it. Crooks and criminals
do not disguise much theso days;
their game is to keep concealed out
of the way of arrest. In Russia
there is such a system of espionage.
Nearly every man in the empire has
a correct description written of him
and entered upon the books of tho
police. Even with this precaution
thousands of nihilists, esoape detection. Ste pnink, the nihilist, was
fully known w> the Russian police,
Yet ho made his escape and lives
happily in London. Woman in certain detective work may do very
well, but for all around work a man is
far superior."

MOIIE ABOUT IHE 11AILWAY lIOlIT.OIt.
CiiiCAiin, Aug. 12. — Forty-eight
hours have elapsed since the fatal excursion train went down to ita doom.
Whether the victims aggregate 108 or
105 is a matter still undecided., That
the slaughter was not as great tig at
first reported, was made evident early
this morning, when, by comparison of
tho list, it was found 38 names hod
been duplicated. The railway officials
insist that it reached 94 with the cases
which may result fatally. Residents
of Chatsvrorth, however, place Uie
number of dead at from 145 to 160.
The coroner lias begun an investigation, which promises to give to the
world all the light which can be throra
on the massacre. To-night the impression iB very strong that the bridge
was fired by a gang of train wreckers
bent on pillage. Members of the
Btate board of railway aud warehouse
commissioners reached Chatsworth tonight, and will remain here until the
investigation is concluded. Evidence
was adduced that a light was seen on.
tho track in the vicinity of the disaster, two hours before the train was
due. Other evidence snowed that
there wns no engine ih sight at the
time, or any grass fires. This supports tho theory of train wrecking.
Then tho fact that the thieves began
their work so promptly, and carried it
on so rapidly, is urged as further proof
of the train wrecking theory. The
evidence of somo of the rescued passengers shows that almost the first
persons they saw after tho wreck occurred were thoso who seized their
valuables and made off with them,
without stopping to render them any
assistance iu their horrible peril. One
hundred and fifty-six, it is thought,
will include all the wounded.
LOUD MAMIEVILLE RESIGNS.
London, Aug. 12.—Lord Mande-
ville has resigned the secretaryship of
th'e Liberal Union. He opposed the
leader's policy toward Gladstone, and
refuses to support the Tories.
THIS AFTEBNOON'S DISPATCHES.
UTE.S ON THE WAR" PATH.
Washinoton, Aug. 13.—The war
department has received a telegram
from the governor of Colorado announcing tho uprising of the White
River Utes, near Meeker, Col., and
asking assistance of U. S. troops in the
suppression of il. The telegram haa
been forwarded to Gen. Crook, who
has command of that military department, for such action as he deems advisable. He has full power to act in
the matter and will send troops to the
scene ol trouble if thought necessary.
There are plenty of troops just north
and soutli of Meeken, and they can be
utilized on short notlco. The Utes
are regarded os a most dangerous
tribe, and an uprising among them
will prove serious unless promptly suppressed.
FURTHER FROM THE WRECKED TRAIN.
Chicago, Aug. 13.—A special from
Chatsworth to-day to the Chicago
evening News says: Although up to the
present the dead, including a body recovered from the wreck last night,
number not moro than 75, there is
reasonable room for belief thore have
been other deaths, perhaps half a
dozen, resulting from the tragedy,
which cannot be definitely reported
owing to confusion and lack of aystem
when the bodies were being taken
away. No correct list can be presented to the public. Scores whose
injuries wero light enough to permit
it took trains at Chatsworth or Piper
City the first opportunity and wont
homo, The official list of wounded
who have been taken care of here, ond
as Piper City does not at present show
any moro than 100 victims; but there
is no doubt whatever that many more
than that were injured. The coroner's
inquest to-day adjourned till Tuesday
afternoon, after one witness had been
examined. He was W. G. Messier,
grain dealer at Chatsworth. Tho only
thing notable about his evidence was a
statoment that, although he was ono pi
the first at the wreck, and remained
there until the arrival of the first relief
train, he saw no interference by any
body with valuables of tho victims.
MURDERERS UAUOHT.
Beluradb, Aug. 13.—A gang of
murderers has has just beon arrester!
at Pierot. Their victims during the
past two years number CO. Disguised
ai Gensdarmes the assassins pretended
to arrest travellers for various offences and then robbed and killed
them. A deputy of the prefect of
Pierot was the first person accused of
complicity in the crimes. It is believed that a political motive lead to
the commission of the murder. Two
Frenoh newspaper men and Prince
Alexander's groom wero among the
victims. An official commission of enquiry has been despatched to Pierot.
The Laws of the Medis an» Persians were not more immutable than
those of nature. If we transgress them
wo suffer. Sometimes, however, we
break them inadvertently. Damages
frequently take the form of Dyspepsia,
Constipation and Biliousness, whioh can
be easily repaired with Northrop ft Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, the Great Blood Purifier and
renovator of tho system.

Miss Galbraith, of the Royal City,
who has been paying a visit to the
Misses Jennings, of Mud Bay, has returned home. Mrs. Walker, of Victoria, is rusticating with her parents,
Mr. and Mrs. Mackenzie, of Clover
Valley. Mias Lily Mackenzie il sufficiently recovered from her recent
attack of sioknoss to be able to be
around again. The Kensington Prairie school board has advertised for a
teacher. They intend holding school
in a private house until a school building can be erected. Mr. McLean, late
of P. E. I., is teaching Clover Valley
school and J. C. McLennan, Mud Bay
sohool. Last Sunday morning a bush
-fire destroyed a- stable belonging to
Mr. John Stephenson, Hgin. Mr.
Hatt's house and contents wu burned .
last week. There was no person at
home, and the fire could not possibly
have been an accident. Mr. Hatt lost
(500 ho had in a trunk. Thelookof
the trunk ■ was found broken in tlie
ruins, which leads to the belief tint
the affair was the work of a thief and
incendiary. For the last week the
Kirkland road hafbeen badly blocked
by firo felling trees acrosa it. One of
the largest barns in Uie valley is now
in the course of construction by Mr.
Daniel Johnson, Mr. John Stephenson also has built a fine barn. Mr.
D. W. Brown, Hall's Prairie, is hauling material for a new house.* Mr.
Murchison is buildiuga handsome addition to his house. The harvest generally promises to be light: not nearly
up to the average, on aooouut of the
late spring and excessively dry weather
afterwards. Tho hoy crop is now
mostly housed, and is also a short
crop. Those having hay for sale anticipate a good price during the coming
winter, aa the crop is a small one almost everywhere in B. C. Some of
our municipal legislators conceived the
idea of borrowing a sum of money,
from {20,000 to 1)30,000, to aid public improvements in the municipality.
The scheme was brought prominently
before the people on the day of a
recent council meeting with the result
that the loan, I believe, ia now to be
abandoned, as the people view debt
contracting by the municipality anything but favorably. Tenders for the
Elgin-Blaine road closed on the 3rd
inst. People are now anxiously inquiring who has been awarded the
contract. It is to be honed that this
much required work will be pushed
vigorously before Uie wet season.

Among other, .things brought before tho attention of Hon. Thos,
Whito by tho Viotoria board of
trade wu that of the Ohina steam-
en calling there on both the inward
and outward trips. The board insists that no subsidy should be
granted to these steamers either by
the Dominion or imperial government except upon condition that
they call both ways to receive and
discharge passengers, mails and
freight Is not the board of trade
going just a little top far in insisting
upon such a conditionl We have
no fault to find with our Victoria
friends in their efforts to secure tho
calling of these steamers, but they
have no right to advise the withholding of tho bonus to the disadvantage of the whole provinco for a
purely selfish and local reason.
The BjklBB Lauds.
One of the immediate fruits of
the visit of Hon. Thomas White to
this province is likely to be most
welcome to the people of Chilliwhack. We understand that an
arrangement has been made through
the hon. gentleman, representing
the federal government, and ihe
provincial authorities, whereby titles
will be issued almost immediately
to all bona fide occupants of the
Ohilliwback dyking lauds. This is
a matter of very great importance.
The. delay that has taken place in
the administration of these lands,
it is already known, is the result of
a dispute between the two governments respecting ownership. The
federal government claimed that
the lands . belonged to it, a claim
which the government of British
Columbia stoutly refused to admit,
and until this point had been finally
settled, or some provisional arrangement arrived at, no titles could be
given. Proposals for such an arrangement were made, we believe,
some time ago by eur government,
but did not receive the sanction of
the Ottawa authorities, but Mr.
White seems Jo have been commissioned to effect a settlement, which
has been done, The delay, therefore, has not heen the fault of our
own government, which has always
manifested muoh anxiety to have
these lands placed in possession of
persons entitled to them. On several occasions settlers have expressed
a wish that the administration of
these' lands! should fall to the provincial authorities, because it has
been found much more satisfactory
to deal with the local government
than,, with the government at Ottawa in relation to matters of tbat sort
We are glad that this wish is to be
gratified, and we hope that every
bona .fide settler found on these
lands will receive a title on payment
of one dollar an acre. The lands
affected hy this arrangement comprise about 45,000 aores, and therein is contained a good many farms
equal to any in the province. The
doubts which have hitherto existed
respecting the administration of
these lands, and the obtaining of
titles, hare been a serious drawback to settlement and improvement, and we should not wonder
if the termination of this period
of uncertainty will be the beginning
of new schemes of agricultural enterprising in the banner settlement
of the banner district of British
Columbia. There is really only one
drawback to the settlement and
development of these lands, and
that is the danger of overflow in
seasons of high water. But the experience of the present summer is
sufficient to demonstrate that this
danger may be greatly modified, if
not entirely avoided, by the process
of dyking. Last spring the people,
with the aid of a small appropriation from the provincial treasury,
constructed a piece of dyking which
proved of incalculable value to the
settlement It waa felt that the
undertaking could not be carried out
as it ought to be as a private enter
prise, and a general wish was expressed that the government might
afford substantial assistance. Would
it sot be an excellent plan, now
that tha benefits of such a scheme
have been fairly demonstrated, to
appropriate the proceed! of the sale
of these lands, or at least a fair
proportion of them, towards extending end completing what has already been so well begun! If the
provincial government can be persuaded to adopt this suggestion, we
are inclined to believe that any loss
of prospective revenue would soon
be fully made np from other sources.
It would promote the rapid settlement of a large tract of land now
yielding nothing either to the government or to> tke people, and would
lay tat foundation of a permanent
revenue in the shape of taxes. We
have to congratulate the government
upon having, brought to a satisfactory termination this dispute which
for so many years has been a cause
of muoh embarrassment to some
exoellent settlers, ud hu materially
retarded the lettlsment of thst part
of the district; and we congratulate
the maple also upon the realisation
of a hope whioh bad become nearly
extinguished through years of dis-
appolntsaent

"I want you to notice," aaid Grandfather
Grey
To the two little boya who lived over tho
way,
"That a man can never a drunkard be
Who keeps from the poison oup totally
freo; *
And never a drunkard was anywhere
known,
But out  of  a moderate drinker   he'd
grown.
"And so, if you never would have  tho
disgrace
Of a staggering step and a bloated face,
Of a wretched home and a ruined soul,
Be sure not to touch the foaming bowl;
Let it alone, nor look with desire
On Uie wine that is red, on the liquid tire.
"Beware of the little now and then;
If you take it once you will want it again.
The moderate drinker is never secure;
A drunkard he'll die you may almost be
sure.
To be safe from tbe curse thero is only
one way:
Bo total abstainers,"  said  Grandfather
Grey.
It Will Come.
They say prohibition does not prohibit. Let me ask them, if thoy really
believe this, wby do they kick eo bard
agginst it? But the cold facts are
against them. * * * All in all,
prohibition to-day bas much moro encouragement than abolition had forty
years ago and yet abolition has, for
over twenty years, been an established
success. Having so much more to accomplish—the relief of sixty millions
of people instead of four—prohibition
may be proportionately alow, but just
as certainly aa God lives it will come;
and it is tne duty of every man who
loves his country and his fellow-man,
by every legitimate effort, to speed its
glorious coming. Undoubtedly many
of us older ones will not see the final
triumph; but, living, let us fight for
the right; let us make for ourselves a
record of which our ohildren will bo
proud and which they will strive to
emulate; and, dying, we will find comfort in the approval of a good conscience and in the justice of the cause
to which we gave our lives' efforts.
And we may safely trust that the good
we hare aimed at, if not attained, in
this direction will, in. some small
measure, compensate for the evil which
enters into tho lives of all.
What ll costs.
The annual liquor bill of .the United
States is $900,000,000, an amount so
large we cannot comprehend it The
amount spent annually in prosecutions,
that are the legitimate fruit of this
ilWitimate business, is estimated at
from Bix to seven hundred millions.
We will call it $084,000,000, and this
added to the drink bill makes the enormous Bum of $1,684,000,000, as tho
annual to thia nation of the drink
traffic.
This sum changed into silver dollars
would make a belt clear around the
globe, and go half way around the
second time, or make a solid line of
37,600 miles long.
The population of the United States
is now estimated at 00,000,000. This
sum would give an annual income of
$20.40 to eaeh man woman and child.
It would pave a walk four feet wide
and 1,171} miles long.
This sum, in silver dollars, reckoning $16 to a pound, would weigh 30,-
500 tons. If this were loaded on
wagons, a ton to each team, it would
make a procession 2811; miles long.
In a talk with a Southern (United
States) manufacturer, says the Hon.
J. B. Finch, I asked him if ho was a
prohibitionist. He said, "Look at
these mills;" and I didn't havo far to
look in any particular direction, for
he owned the largest cotton mills of
tiie South. "Now," said he, "look
up that street, where there are over
ono hundred grog-shops. I find that
the ability of the workmen to do their
work is taken away. In these streets
are places that rob them of their
money, nerve and muscle, degrade
their intelligence, ruin their producing capacity, and make them comparatively worthless to me. When it
reaches that, mills or the grog-shops
must go, and I prefer that it shall be
the grog-shop."
21,000 Miles ok Teetotausm. —
Mr. John M. Cook has just returned
from one of the longest and moat
arduous journeys he has ever undertaken. In 21 weeks he travelled over
21,000 miles. In the course of his
journey he experienced the cold of the
Himalayas and the heat of the plains of
India, of ihe Red Sea, and the Soudan.
His health has been excellent. His
beverage all through hu heen either
tea or water. His father, the originator of the great excursion system,once
uid that although people may talk
about bad water he had not been in
any country in which he had nut found
the water belter than the wine. His
son seems to be of the samo faith.
What Temperance Men Demand.
—The purpose of the temperance men
of this country hu been for years well
defined, and they have not changed it,
and wdl not change it until victory
shall oome, They demand the complete outlawry of drunkard-making,
and they will accept no compromise
that allows it to exist in any form,

The Queen or England.
In an article 6n"The Queen of
England," in the North American Review, Moncure E. Conway pricks that very prevalent,
delusive idealistic bubble, that
Queen Victoria wields large
political' power by virtue of her
titles and position. It is the
constitutional superstition of
Americans, remembering how
much politial power our President wields, to imagine that the
Qneen has similar influence, and
so she is blamed for not settling
the Irish: question, or interfering
against British oppression in foreign countries. The fact is, as
Mr. Conway says: "The Queen
has no power of that kind at all.
That she has made her throne
the tomb of every last relic of
personal authority is the immediate jewel of her crown. The
royal prerogative has been exercised once by Gladstone, and
once by Disraeli, but never by
Queen Victoria. As the greatest writer on the English constitution has said, the Queen
would certainly sign her own
death warrant were it laid before her by the ministers. On
her accession, comtemporaneous
historians remarked that the
youthful maiden followed the
instructions and words' of her
ministers with an intent exactness; the literal fidelity at that
ceremony has been followed by
fifty years of intelligent fidelity
to the constitution. It needed
but such a reign to sum up and
consolidate all the results of
English revolutions, to embody
the liberal progress of more than
a thousand years, to send all
arbitrary laws to their fossel bed,
to make England what its Laureate has claimed, the Crowned
Republic. The last time an attempt was made to utlize the
Queen politically is especially
memorable as bearing upon her
sex. In the agitation for female suffage some of the American advocates of that measure
had spoken of the Queen as representing the principle of the
participation of woman in political power, and this notion
found sortie *eh6!- airteng»Ihe
more ignorant friends of that
cause in England. But a few
years ago, when the subject was
before Parliament, a member
read an extract from "Our life in
the Highlands," in which the
Queen declared women unfit for
politics, and that good women
will leave these things to men;
There were .cttyr.ot "cfdjr!"
throughout the house of commons, even the majority, to
whom the sentiment was agreeable, recognizing that it was unconstitutional to bring influence
from the throne to bear on a debate in the Legislature. But
the arrow had sped to its mark;
The woman's declaration against
the political aspirations of her
sex was even feathered by cries
of "order" which recognized the
throne's abdication o' political
power. Atthe same time the
many eminent and worthy women now claiming the franchise
in England felt sore about the
incident. The question naturally
suggests itself whether submissive readness to sign measures
passed by Parliament, however
repugnant to herself, is consistent with the highest character.
No one can doubt that the
Queen has often done this, and
that she would have signed
Gladstone's' home rule bill as
promptly as Salisbury's coercion
bill. Those who realize that
every assertion of personal prerogative, even on their own side,
forges a precedent that may be
used on the other side, and restorer* weapon which has normally proved, fatal to human
liberty, it will appear that the
wisdom of Victoria as a woman
is reflected in her strict
constitutionality as a Queen.
This is the open secret of the
homage paid by the English people toa Queen who is neither
beautiful or brilliant, and whose
withdrawal of the throne from
j all political power has not been
accompanied by its, usual lustre
as a social centre. For though
to Puritanism and prosaic Radicalism the court in mourning has
been agreeable, as showing the
ncedlessness of any court at all,
the majority of the English people desire a splendid court, and
have felt aggrieved by its long
eclipse. Also the leading political thinkers of England place *
high value on the throne, especially since it has ceased to be a
political institution. What is
that value?" Mr. Conway decides
that the valuable purpose which
the throne now serves in England
is to protect the country against
a monarchy. That is, but ibr the
presence of the throne and the
firmly entrenched royal family,
it might be quite possible for a
revolution to put a monarch of
Uie European type on the throne
of England. "A royal family,"
he says, ''defends England from
internal as well as foreign ambitions. By gathering the supreme
social lustre around a non-political centre, political offices are
thrown into a sort of atrophy, so
far as glory is concerned. No
politician will seek office for the
sake of any social splendor. It
cannot be found there. The
statesman or the minister must
depend on his services for his
renown. Only by intellect, toil;
patriotism, can he be great. The
tinsel and the powers of chieftainship are bestowed in separate
estates. The artificial glories are
permanently monopolisedj there
remains open to personal ambition only the lustre that emanates from personal qualities and
deeds. Thus, while the British
throne is the guilded sepulcher
of monarchy, its occupants—non-
elective, alien, depositories of all'
fictitious honors—guard that sepulcher against any resurrection
of monarchy from without or
within."

The Hose Reel Bade,—In an item
whioh appeared in this paper yesterday respecting the hose reel race, it
was stated that the hose are to be
tested with 20 lbs. pressure. It should
havo read 120 lbs.
Spikes.—Somo timo uro wo drew
attention to tho number of spikes
■ticking up in some of our sidewalks,
inviting collision with people's toos.
Nothing has been dono to remedy this
evil, which is a source of annoyance
to everybody who uses tho walks.
The cost of driving these spikes
would be very small in comparison with the comfort it would bring
to pedestrians.
Too Previous.—A Vancouver co-
temporary says: "A Norwegian gentleman named Mr. Brommehl loft yesterday for Vuldez Island, whoro a number
of his countrymon Imvo lately boon
established in tho fishing nnd farming
industries." Now, tlioro are no Norwegians living on Vuldez Island at
present, und not likely to bo for somo
time. There were a number settled
lately on tho mainland, iu the valley
of the Squninish river. Our ootemporary is getting matters a little
mixed. An over-dose of "circulation"
does not seem to agree with him.
Quarterly Installation. —Tho
quarterly installation of offerors of Dominion Lodgo No. 4., I. O. G. T., took

accompanied by Mrs, and the Misses
Turner, arrived in the city to-day from
Viotoria, via Vancouver. Mr. Turner
is head of tho wholesale houso of Jas.
Turner & Co., and vice-president of
the bank of Hamilton, nnd a heavy
stockholder and director in the Northern & Northwestern Railway. The
party are travelling in nn official oar of

west fn gradual stages, stopping at
Winnipeg, Banff, and other points en

city a couple of days and will visit
Ladner's   Landing before departing

New Fashion in Houses.—A reporter wu yesterday shown the plans
for a new residence for Mr. W. R.
Greig to be erected on Clinton st.
The architects are Messrs. Clow &
Maclure. The stylo of the residence
will be modern American, and several
now features will be introduced in con*
ncotion with the construction. Tho
residence will be one of tho neatest in
the city. It is pleasing to note that
many of the residences now going up
are modelled after the fashionable
villas of California, and probably not
many years will havo elapsed beforo
our eity will contain houses that will
compare favorably with any north of
the Bay City.

B. C. Directory.—Wo have before
us a copy of the British Columbia
Directory just issued by Messrs.
Mallandaine & Williams, of Victoria.
The book has been gotton up in excellent style, and reflects muoh credit
upon the publishers and printors. It
contains 320 pages, exclusive of advertisements, snd besides the directory
proper it has a large amount of descriptive and other information of
great value relating to the province.
It makes an excellent hand-book of
reference tot residents of British
Columbia as well as for those at a distance anxious to learn about the character, extent and resources of the
country. It contains 01 pages moro
than the directory of 1885, and is sold
for |2 a copy. The printing of this
directory was executed at the Columbian office in thia oity, and wo think
it will compare favorably with that of
any book ever produced in British
Columbia.
...
Bricks Lost.—The steamer Maud
left Victoria on the evening of tho
Uth inst. with a scow loaded with
brick in tow for this city. After being
out several hours it was discovered
that the scow had sprung a leak nnd
men were put to work immediately to
pump her out and for some time managed to keep the water from gaining
on them. When close to the Sand
heads the water began to gain rapidly
and ss the scow was only furimhed
with one pump it soon became evident
that in would sink, The next best
thing to do was to try and save the
brick and every available man was set
to work transferring them from-the
barge to the Maud, but only a few
thousand had been got aboard when
the scow commenced to settle and the
men had just time to get aboard the
steamer when with a luroh the seow
disappeared, The loss will bo a severe
one to the owner as there was nearly
1800 worth of bricks on board, besides whioh the loss of the scow will
be considerable—Kaiicout'er News,
. . .
A. Maybeo, Merchant, Workworth,
writes: "I have sold some hundreds of
bottles ot Dr. Thomas' Electric Oil, and
Itfls pronounced by tho publio 'one of
the best medicines they have ever used';
it has dene wonders In healing and relieving pain, sore throats, kc, and is
worthy of the greatest confidence,"
Still Evadino the Point. — Our
Vancouver cotcmoprnry, after taking
time to consider the situation, has, apparently concluded not to nccopt the
Columbian's challenge on the question of circulation. Ho resorts to a
great deal of unnecessary verbiage in
order to cover up this fact and mako
it appear that he is anxious to proceed.
If there is a particle of sincerity in his
professed anxiety he would at once ac-
cejifc our proposal. It was simple and
explicit. Our cotemporary first made
a boast that his circulation in Westminister was greater than that of the
two local papers, and that ho could
prove it. Wo challenged this statement, called upon him for tho proof
mid offered to covor 9100 if he would
put it up to bo forfoitod to the hospital
if liiB proof failed. Ho soys ho has accepted this proposal! But if ho has,
why has ho not put up tho depusit and
prooood with tho proof! Wc have nothing to do nt all in tlio matter but to
cover his 8100 deposit and pny it ovor
if forfoitod. Wo have nothing to do
with proving tho circulation. Our co-
toniporat'y assorted -that ho had tho
proof, and now let hint put up his deposit ond praduco it. Or if he will
show that our proposal is unfair to
him or reasonable wo shall bo quite
ready to reconsider tho whole question. Until ho does that we hovo nothing moro to offer. The onus of proof
clearly rests with our cotemporary,
nnd we hove nothing to soy about the
way in which ho is to proceed. In reply to his question, wo say most assuredly we do not "refuse to go on with
the matter." We nro waiting to be informed that his deposit is up!

Hon. Thos. White
And the victoria board of trade.
On Wednesday the Viotoria board
of trade pesented on address to Hon.
Thos. White touching upon many important questions, and from the Times
we condonse the hon. gentleman's reply. After praising the situation and
attractions of Viotoria he Baid that in
discussing tho Beveral clauses he stated
that the BUbjeotB referred to belonged
to departments outside his. So far as
the Island wns concerned his department had nothing hero now to attend
to. Ho referred to tho visit of tlie
Hon. Mr. Foster last year, and presumed that the matters referred to in
the address were laid beforo him as
the proper minister to deal with theso
topics. He hoped that ere long there
would be as good facilities for naviga-.
tion on the Pacific coast as Canada had
on tho Atlantic seaboard and Gulf of
St. Lawrence. Ho promised tho meeting his aid in carrying out the desired
improvements. So for as the telegraphic system was concerned h.
thought it an admirable one—a system
mneh better than he supposed at one
time we possibly could have. As to
other lines boing constructed he did
nut think the government would oppose them. Generally largo concerns
bo manipulated affairs that in a short
timo small ones were controlled and
ultimately.becamo the property of the
strongest oompany. The matter of
the trans-Pacific steamers calling at
Victoria was next discussed. Mr.
White said it Was of the first moment
to the oompany to secure the most
rapid transit across British soil to
Japan and Ohina. He had understood
thnt the steamers in future would call
here. He would call the attention of
the O.P. R. authorities to tho subject
and urge his own opinion on the subject. The line and the company) however, were independent of the government and now controlled and managed
on business principles. He hoped the
greatest good would result from the
ocean trade the oompany were now de*
veloping in their ocean steamship service, fn regard to the harbor improve'.
ments he explained how it was that the
subjeot.had not received attention and
the consideration of the govornment.
He gave the city members credit for
their pertinacity in pressing tho claims
of this harbor on the government for
its consideration. Ho promised to add
Ins urgent solicitations to those of the
eity representatives in having a sum
placed in next year's estimates for this
work. He had mode a personal examination of th* harbor and ita improve
ment was a necessity. On the pilotage question ho had not a sufficient
knowledge to oxpress an opinion, but
promised to refer it to Mr. Foster,
with the hope that he might find a
solution for the difficulty complained
of. Tho question of au insolvency law
was a perplexing one. He reviewed
whole subject and tho discussions that
had taken place thereon in and out of
parliament for many years. The Bch-
ring Sea seizure was a most difficult
question to be dealt with. Its final
outcome he was unable to fortell. He
was under the impression that the
American authorities had issued instructions to surrender the seized vessels. In this, however, he was mistaken for no action beyond official correspondence had yet taken place.
Practically nothing hod been done.
He'hoped the government would be
represented at the Sitka trials on the
22nd inst. Ho had urged this most
strongly on the minister of justice and
Sir John Macdonald. It was a grave
question, and one that should not be
loft to the owners of vessels to fight
out themselves! Ho could not comprehend the reason for seizing these
vessels. It was a new, as well as a
strange doctrine to preach that any
nation oan cede to another the exclusive right to the high sea. He hoped
from a full and authentic source the full
details of the whole circumstances connected with the affairs. The commercial and political aspect of the tariff
and the changes made lost session
were referred to. The fiscal policy of
1879 was again affirmed in 1882. Sir
Charles Tapper's boldness last session
in introducing a new tariff was characteristic of the man. The proviso to
allow the admission of contracts made
prior to last June at the old rate was
of advantage to this city and province.
He believed the cap stone had now
been placed upon the fiscal policy of
tho country, and that hereafter there
would be sudden ohanges of a serious
character. It would be necessary to
maintain a high tariff to provide for
the extraordinary expenditure! which
hod to be provided for. Since the
present party came into power repeated efforts had been made to secure a
renewal of the reciprocity treaty which
hod been abrogated in 1867. The
governor-general in council had powers
vested in him to negotiate with the
Americans for a treaty in the direction
indicated in the address. In the event
of a new treaty being negotiated,
the interests of British Columbia, as
well aa those of the entire Dominion,
would not be overlooked in tho most
minute detail. When the last treaty
was negotiated British Columbia was
not a part of tho Dominion. In conclusion the hon. gentleman said that
he had only again to thank the board
for its kind words of welcome and
bringing the matters referred to under
his notice. Said he: I have always
been a great believer in British Columbia, in its eternal resources and
capabilities, and, as I said in parliament ten years ago, whot I have never
ceased to feel" since. I believe she is
destined to become one of the richest,'
if not the richest, of tho provinces in
the Dominion. Everything cannot be
accomplished in a.day, The railroad,
which brought us into practical communication with British Columbia and
its peoplo, hss brought about great
changes in sontiment. Questions are
much more easy of settlement from the
knowledge which is gained by the personal visit of publio men to this province, und I have no doubt, as I certainly anticipate, that the result will
be equally advantageous to the province and the Dominion at large.
MrB. E. H. Perkins, Creek Centre,
Warren Co., N. Y., writos: She has been
troubled with asthma for four years, had
to sit up night alter night with it. She
has taken two bottles of Dr, Thomas'
Eolectrio Oil, and is perfectly cured.
She strongly recommends it, and wishes
to aet as agent among her neighbors.
