Array eh Columbian
trl—r a.tnlna, Nov. ts, 1SSI.
We have not the slightest objection to the Times or any other newspaper making " a six-line local" out
of information obtained from the
Columbian. What we lind fault
with is the copying of items indiscriminately without credit and, in
some instances, without even changing them to suit the circumstances.
For example, a few days ago tho
Columbian published an item giving
the quantity of freight handled by
the C.P.B. at this eity during the
week, and the amount of money received for freight and for tickets.
The Times copied the wholo item,
without change and without credit,
so that it appeared us a statement
of tho railway business handled at
Viotoria instead of Westminster.
This is not the first instance of the
kind, nor is the Times alone guilty
of such things.
It is said that among the freight
brought ovor by the steamer Abyssinia was a quantity of bricks from
Japan. These bricks, we are told,
may be obtained so cheaply at Yokohama that it is possible to lay
them down in Vancouver at a figure
which brings them into successful
competition with bricks from the
provincial yards. If our information be correct, it may happen that
the price of bricks will come down,
en event from which builders will
receive a benefit at the expense of
the brick makers. Tho demand for
bricks in this city and Vancouver
during the past season has been enormous, and next season it is not
likely to be any less. While this
demand keeps up the resources of
the makers will be taxed to their
utmost capacity, and prices may be
expected to remain firm.
We expressed the opinion the
other day that it was a mistake to
require college graduates who applied for positions as teachers in
our schools to undergo a technical
examination by the provincial board.
In a letter to the Times Bev. D.
Fnuer, of Viotoria, gives expression
to a similar view. He points out
thtt the salaries offered to teachers
in this province are not such as to
induce first-class men from the east
to accept them. Common teachers
receive much better salaries in British Columbia than elsewhere in
Canada, bnt first-class men in the
high schools of the east bring from
$1200 to $1800 a year. By requiring graduates to pass a local examination we practically shut out some
of the best teachers, and this is particularly foolish inasmuch as we
have no university of our own to
nuke graduates.
There is open war in eastern
Canada and the United States between the Ohurch of Borne and the
public schools. Some of the most
influential newspapers in the republic declare that this question of
maintaining the public schools
against the assaults of Borne will
speedily become one of the chief
questions in many of the states. In
Ontario the controversy has long
been carried on. There the Boman
Catholics have separate schools un
der their own management wherever
they choose to establish them, but
in many instances their children con
tinue to. attend the publio schools in
preftv to  their own.   Bishop
Cleary, of Kingston, has lately been
showing special activity in opposing
and denouncing the public schools,
warning his Bock that unless they
utterly withdrew from these institutions their prospects in the future
would be extremely unsatisfactory.
At Kapanee the other day the
bishop made one of the most extraordinary speeches we have ever
heard, from a person occupying the
dignified position to which he has
been called. He made a terrible
assault on Canadian public schools,
declaring tbat they wore " an abomination and a disgrace," They
are, he laid; " schools of corruption
and an abomination to the country."
It has always been held that the
publio sohool system of Ontario, established by trie late Dr. Byeraon,
wu one of the best in the world.
So widely had its fame extended,
that commissioners have come Ipng
distances to study and copy it. But
Bishop Cleary eays of it: "Such
an Ignorant system the world never
saw before." As a result of tho ignorance aad depravity of the public
schools, the bishop thinks the women
of Oanada are a bold, immodist, ignorant set: Travelling in Oanada,
lays this divine, has become "well
nigh intolerable by bold, screaming,
screeching women;" and for sake of
peace and quietness, , gentlemen
travelling on the railways are forced
to take refute in the smoking can
ao ae to eeeape these terrible women!
Even on the street., he says, Canadian girls are so bold ahd immodest
that thejr stare into men's faces until they (the men) fairly blush for
shame! The coeducation of the
■exes he denounces as "an abomination whioh even pagaui would not
tolerate." We are afraid Bishop
Cleary will not find many people in
Oanada to agree or sympathize with
with hiin in his opinions. It is a
libel upon the women of Canada tp
etigmatise them as immodest. That
then' are  immodest,   screeohing,
boisterous women in Canada as elsewhere, no one will deny—and there
lire also bishops who become needlessly boisterous in denouncing what
they either do not undorstnnd or de-
lire to misrepresent. Such exaggeration is sure to reflect upon . tbo
person who indulges in it.
If a few Gkains nr Common SKHsis
could Ire infused into tho thick noddlo3
of thoso who perpetually anrl alternately
Irritate and weaken thoir Btumaehs and
bowels with drastic purgatives, they

A Creaking Hinge
Is dry and turns hard, until oil is applied,
after which it moves easily. When the
joints, or hinges, oftho hody are stiffened
and inflamed by Rheumatism, they cannot he moved without causing the most
excruciating pains. Ayer's Sarusparilla,
by its aotion on the blood, relieves this
condition, and restores the joints to good
Wot king order.
Ayer's SarsapariUa has effected, in our
city, many most remarkable cures, In
canes which baffled the efforts of the
most oxperlenced physicians. Wore It
necessary, I could give the names of
many individuuts who have been cured
by taking this medicine. In my case it
has worked wonders, relieving mo of
Rheumatism,
after being troubled with it for years. In
this, and all other diseases arising from
Impure blood, there is no remedy with
which I am acquainted, that affords such
relief as Ayer's SarsapariUa.—H. H.
Lawrence, M. D., Baltimore, Md.
Ayer's SarsapariUa cured me ot Gout
and Rheumatism, when nothing else
would. It has eradicated every trace of
disease from my system.— B. H. Short,
Manager Hotel Bolmont, Lowell, Mass.
I was, during many months, a sufferer
from chronic Rheumatism. The disease
afflicted me grievously, in spite of all tbe
remedies T oould find, until I commenced
using Avar's SarsapariUa. I took several bottles of this preparation, and was
speedily restored to health. —J. Fream,

Woods Now In Use.
"Tho very latest thing in caneg It tb*
hiuel stick" taid * Fulton street ■hop-
keeper. "It resembles a miniature treei
in big at the end and has a large body-
Horn is one. You see that the wood is
finely grained and that the bark ia
genuine. These sticks cost seventy-five
cunts and one dollar, ahd are much af-
filrteil bv impecunious young men who
air- the Xirw York dudes. Cdnes are cut
in ihe rou.ili tm 1 brought to tho city in
curloarls. Insiiiu mountainous districts
many of th r inh ihiunrts do nothing else
but eut an 1 eliip canevvood. In one
factory in New York over ten thousand
canes rare turned out daily. ; They are
liiwed and turned wholly by machinery.
Expert cane-makers can earn big wages."
"What are the principal woods now in
nso 1"
"Florida oak, English hazel, dogwood,
thorn, boxwood, apple, mulberry, diamond willow, orang-, yucca, red, gum,
cedar, chestnut, hickory, pear, llgnumvit-o
ami Imt oak. The Inst named wood
coram from Ireland and makes a most
hnul.Mine stick. Tho natives are quite
drrvvr nt carving. Thoy ornament the
ratitM with shamrocks, harps and thitrtlos,
while on Boinn cnstles in which the
liluraoy Stone in said to be locked up are
carved. Here in a perfect bog oak. You
can see that while the carving ia rough
it is well executed. The fine lines show
the beat. The work is all done by hand,
ntvl ro carve a slick as well as this must
he tli • work of many days. Bog oak is
font) I in the boas oi Ireland. The older
tier wood the better stick it makes. I
slum! in't won ler but tbat the wood of
w..icii the stick is made has lain in the
wat r for a hundred years. No, gold-
h tided canes are now not considered
fashionable. They are affected by elderly
men. Silver-headed canes will be worn
as loig as the rlude continues to exist. I
hear 1 the other day that a fashionable
yoi it man, a resident of Brooklyn, was
pnisoiiel by Billing a cane, the head of
which contained brass, but probably thia
wasa libelous tale," said tbe man of canes
without blushing.
Continuing, the reporter'! informant
said:
" Ebony and rosewood are tho stook
sticks. They aro appreciated because of
their strength, and surely what can be
more Imr term: than a highly-polished
irirony stick with a gold head? Silver-
to.rrnrrl caries s -ll as high as ten dollars,'
but inriuy <>f those sold by unscrupulous
dealers contain less than two dollars'
w i- !> of silver. The same fraud is often
P'rcticcil iu gold-headed canes, which
sc.1 from twenty dollars up. The buckthorn stick has bad its day and is now
but liltle used, The cane ia perhaps
ino/r popular in America than kngland.
In th r latter country it is considered a
w 'u.iiiess for a man to carry a cane and
try aro not affected by the nobility.
Light canes are preferable in summer.
In umbrella heads many novelties are
shown. The natural wood handle if
best, I think, for daily wear, but many
prefer gold and silver handles. Yes,
Ih re is a profit in this business, bnt not
bo big a one as many people imagine,"
said the cane nun in conclusion.
DiUBnilap,
Colonel A. Sinierk Piatt, In in article
published in the North American Keview,
expresses tha opinion that tho people of
the L'n'terl States are, and for years have
lie 'ii, in a Ntate of slavery to' the bondholders, worse even than the Negro
anivt'i'y at th r South which Was destroyed
by the War of the Rebellion.
Wnnt he demands it a summary release from this bondage, not by repudiating the national debt out and out, b. by
p iv n; all tho bonds that are due, and
th n buying all that are not due, and by
isoiing "greenbacks" in sufficient quan-
t tr to m.e t cjianiwtep ot the whole
debt.
It ia quite true that a government or
an individual owing debts, ia in a state of
bondage to the creditors ia the sense oi
being bound to pay these debts. This1
however, is a kind of bondage which hu
been common througout the whole history of the world, ana will remain so to
the end ot time. The relation oi dobtor
anrl creditor, like that of husband ind
wife, parent and child, ruler and rated,
bironjs naturally to human society. Wa
had uot supposed that thii relation bore
nny analogy to Negro alavery, and certainly not that it is worse than such ilav-
ery, until so informed by Colonel Pratt
(treat benefits arise bom it, alike to the
ile: nor and the creditor. Indeed, we do
not well see how Kwiety could .'get along
ru iti industrial and brulneea aSairs,
without having in it mow or leas tbeele-
in nt of debt bondage. When an indi-
vi lital or a government wants to borrow,
it is vory convenient to find some one
who bas the means of becoming a lender,
and will become such. Such wis the
case with this Government doling the
latowir;"
We, however, entirely agree with Colonel Pratt in the wisdom ofgetting rid of
this debt bondage by paying tha national
debt as noon aa possible. Thii is what
we have been doing ever since thi don.
of the war, and must continue to do until the last dollar il paid. We do not
agree with him in tho implication which
runs all through his article, that tha
".mudhrilders" are somehow oppressors
of tire people. They have a Imt claim
against the people as an organised body

We suggMt that thl Colonel, it his

see w oat It says. He will, find that it
ni it litis ths promise of thi United
state i to pay to the bearer one dollar, or
ten dollars, or a thousand dollars, as the
case may be. Here isa dlbt bondage, as
re illy as if the promise were made in an
inter Bt-benriug bond ofthe Government.
We Inrliove inlpayingtbe greenback debt,
and do nut believe in paying the bonded
rleot with this debt, since this would not
be according to the promise, and would
not actually cancel the debt at all. What
the country needs to do. and should do,
is to get rid of the whole debt—bonds

Ranting Poisonous Repute, on the Shore,
ol Lake Georgo.
Perhaps in no part of the country can
be found a more desirable place for the
seeker of recreation and rest to spend his
vacation than on tbe shores of Lake
George. The clearness of its wators and
wild beauty of its mountain surroundings,
its fine atmosphere, and its historic recollections make it a place of more than
common interest to the tourist. Its facilities for hunting and fishing are unsurpassed. There is one kind of game that
is hunted witb much zeal by lovers of
this sport, which is seldom mentioned as
an attraction to tho region. This is the
bunting of rattle-snakes on tbe mountain
ledges and rocky hillsides every spring.
Several of our oldest residents make a
trip each spring, when the weather becomes warm enough, to the home of tho
reptiles of which there are several well-
known dens on the lake. Mr. Hershel
Colvin, of Glen Falls, and Reuben Ripley
of Lake George, have long been noted
for tbeir annual rattle-snake bunts. This
year Mr. Colvin returned home much
disgusted, having only killed twelve
snakes. Their mode of capturing them
is dangerous, to say the least. Taking
their guns they proceeded to the piaces
where the rattlers are wont to assemble
and be at about among tbo rock until one
is discovered. Then they shoot him.
Oftentimes they appear suddenty to tbo
hunter. Then the sensation is not so
pleasant. The snakes nre hunted for
the sport, but some old hunters have
great faith in their oil, which they claim
Is very penetrating and a great remedy
for rheumatism. The killing off of large
numbers in the spring lessens the number
to wander abroad all around the lake
later in the season, to the annoyance of
cottage campers and hotel-keepers. For
as soon as hot weather begins the snakes
leave their dens and roam over the surrounding country. They are great swimmers, and Bwim across the lake and make
no choice of a landing-place. Thoso interested have men engaged the season
through in killing rattlers. Each morning they go out with a pole and poke into
all places where a snake might be hidden
arid kill all they may find. In some
spots a man is kept on the watch at all
spot
tim
times for snakes, so that boarders at hotels ss visitors rarely if ever see a sn ike.
In fact, there is not an attendant at a hotel on the lake who can be enticed to
own that he ever saw a rattle-snake, to
say nothing about killing one. In spite
of all this watching a rattler will manage
to get into a house once and awhile, and
then there is music for a short time
among tbe ladies. Old campers on the
lake who have visited it for years can
seldom be forced to admit that there are
many snakes there, unless they may be
inveigled into telling snake stories, then
one gets an idea of snakes. Two species
of rattlesnake exist there, but as a rule
they will trouble no one if not disturbed.
No cases of anybody being bitten by a
Biinke is recorded unless he was engaged
in hunting them .or had invaded their
dens. An old snake-hunter several years
ago became so careless that in trying to
capture one he undertook to catch the
snake by the tail as he slipped under a
stone, and was bitten. Not enough
whiskey could be got into him, and he
never hunted any more rattlesnakes.
Most experienced campers keep asupply
of snake-root and whiskey on hand in
case it should be needed.
HAUNTED? '
Tkt Adjective Does Not Truly Apply to
UaBS^ Deserted
In some parts of London we may come
upon several forlorn and neglected looking houses, dirty, dilapidated, with every
window broken, covered inside with
b'ack dust and cobwebs—a very picture
of decay and desolation. The poorer inhabitants of the neighborhood explain
all tlris by styling them the "Haunted
Houses." They ore in Chancery, und, if
haunted, it is by the ghost of wasted
lives, ot life long hopes never to be fulfilled, of lives that might have been useful arid glorious wasted in that sickening
wait n/ for a settlement and a to-morrow
that never comes. Some houses which
are credited with being haunted may perhaps, have gained that reputation though
being what we may term deserted houses.
The owner takes a dislike to his bouse
for some reason or other, and will ncithor
live in it nor allow .any one else to do so.
Perhaps the death of a beloved wife or of
an only son or daughter has made it hateful to him; perhaps some hated scene in
his life has oecured there, aud he has
doomed it long before it came into his
possession to be a deserted house when
in his power | perhaps some (earful secret
or undiscovered crime has mado his
guilty conscience afraid to think of the
house inhabited by human beings, Sucb
a deserted house becomes a ruin, a place
of fear and trembling, and, known for
miles around ob the "haunted house,"
is avoided by young and old.

To some minis, every old house is
haunted.   Every chamber is visited by
ghosts, memories ol the past.   I-ongfel-
lo.v, in one of his poems, beautifully expresses this idea.   Ho speaks of meeting
thorn at the door, on the stain* and in tho
passages. He feels their presence among
tho guests at table, and thinks—

tin Growth ot Bantu.
The State of Kansas in 1880, according
to the census taken in that year, had a
population numbering !KX!,00t), which has
since grown to 1.1100,000. It thus hail
three thousand miles ol railroad, which
li'ts since been increased to six thousand
miles. Its livo thousand school-houses
have increased to eight thousand, and its
$liii),UOO,OD0 of personal propertv have
grown to $300,00J,»J0. And yet Kansas'
is ono of the comparatively new states.
But a few years ago it was a territory. It
is large enough to quadruple its population, and It will do so in the not distant
future. Its climate is salubrious, and its
soil is rich. The general quality of its
population is of a good order.'

Nanaimo, Nov. 25.— The fire which
broke out in the Southtield mines nf the
V. O. Oo. on Wecluesday night ia now
under the control and it is thought it
will be completely extinguished in a
short time now, The Are is about
three hundred yards down the slope
and is hemmed in ao thero is no chance
of it spreading. The city steam tire
engine is still forcing two large streams
down the slope they also have two
syphons, one a threo inch and another
a four inch pipe, also pouring down
two additional streams into the slope,
work is suspended in othor portions nf
the Southtield mines at present. At
the air shaft yesterday considerable
smoke escaped, but to-day very littlo
smoke can be seen, tlie fan was started
this morning. It is expected that the
men will be able to-morrow to go down
the slope, but very little damage is
supposed to be done to the mine.
Train Delayed*
Tbe Pacific express is announced to
arrive seven hours late to-day, owing
to an aeeident in the Uevelstoke yards.
Is appears a train just ahead of the
express jumped the track at Revel-
stoke and considerable difficu Ity was
experienced in getting tho line clear
again. No damage or any kind is reported.
The late Wong Tack.
Tho Chinaman who was buried with
such eclat yeaterday afternoon was
named Wong Tuck. He was well
known throughout the city, having
been a resident for over ten years.
Wong was a good Chinaman as Chinamen go, and never missed an opportunity of turning the honest dollar by
cutting wood or doing any other sort
of respectable labor. In social and
society circles Wong took a leading
part, particularly in the former, where
he was much admired for his pleasant
and attractive qualities. Be was a
prominent Free Mason, and had taken
many degrees in the craft.
Another large house greeted the
Maude Granger company last night in

"The Creole," although the acting of
Mils Granger was really excellent.
The latter part of the plav was considerably shortened, owing to the lack
of stage properties and tho small uess
of the stage, which did not permit of
the whole act being rendered with effect. The company have left a very
good impression on the public, and
should they return after Herring's
opera house is completed, they will
meet with a warm reception.

THE GREAT   LI11EL SUIT.
London, Nov, 24.—In spite of the
tremendous pressure that has been
brought to boar upon Mr. Frank Hugh
O'Donnell, formerly vice president of
the Homo Rule Confederation, to induce him to ignore the attacks of the
Time* and abandon his action against
that paper for libel, the proceedings are
being pressed with vigor and threaten
to involve the cnth' < home rule parliamentary contingent. Mr. O'Donuell
strongly objects to being classed with
dynamiters and murderers, and naturally looks to those who are perfectly
competent to do so, to enmo forward
and reful c tho accusations made against
him. That they do uot como forward
voluntarily, lest thoy may in some way
jeopardize tho Irish cause or oompru-
mise some of their companions, ii not
regarded by Mr. O'Donnell as a suf
fioiont reason why he should not compel their attendance aB witnesses, and
there U wailing nnd gnashing of teeth
in tho home rule ranks in cuiisiqueuce
of this resolve to protect himtelf ut sny
cost. That Mr, O'Donnell will recover any considerable sum from tho
Times in tlio eventiof his.winning his
suit, or indeed that ho will win it nt
all few persons believe, but he appears
to be filled with crmfidonce in hia ability to provo the u Thunderer" to havo
lied about him and nothing can sworvo
him. It is just tho leust hit unfortunate for Mr. O'Donnell, however, that
the arrest of Cullan aud HarkinB, and
the discovery of overwhelming evidenoo
of their connection with n dynamite
conspiracy, should have occurred on
tho eve of the trial of his action against
the Times. Since tho revival uf the
dynamite scare it cannotfail toiufluencu
Sublio opinion against him to n great
egreo, Already timid persons are
being frightened out of thoir wits by
tho suggestion that Gallon and Har-
kins nre merely two of a large number
of conspirators scattered about the
oity, each one of whom is woll, if not
better, supplied with explosives as
Callau is found to have beon, and the
number cf pcdoBtiiana in less frequented streets after night fall has become appreciably reduced within the
lust two days. It takes very little to
raise a dynamite scare here, but If it is
possible for a man to keep a purcel
containing 30 pounds of dynamite in
tho very heart of London for an indefinite period without detection, people may well be frightened.

no hesitation in recommending it in any
