During the first 8 months of this
year about $8,000,000 in specio was
imported at San Francisco, of which
$327,000 came'from British Columbia. The foreign imports of goods
at San Francisco for tho month of
August were valued at 53,577,092,
a largo increase over the same period last year. For the 8 months
the total imports by sea were 827,-
498,488. Of this 85,828,721 came
from Japan, §3,751,974 from China,
$1,812,246 from Great Britain, and
$591,335 from British Columbia.
The imports by rail amounted to
only $1,815,300. The total imports
this year are about $5,000,000 more
than for the same period last year.
Several of the mainland papera,
notably the Vancouver IleritU,
wax wrathy at the suggestion to establish ferry communication between
the mainland and tliis city via the
Gulf of Georgia. We can unsure
our mainland cotemporaries that the
establishment of such a ferry may
be classed as an accomplished fact,
and that in j**fay weeks time they
will seo passengers and freight car
ried across the gulf to jSTanuimo,
there to connect with the Island
railway and tlienee to Victoria. It
requires no engineering skill to see
that the actual terminus must eventually be located on Vancouver
Island, and our cotemporaries are
not blind to tlie fac'i but if is not
their interest to "do so. , They abuse
the Island papers simply to keep up
their courage. Stick to it.—Nunai-
mo Free Press. Our island friend
must wholly misapprehend the attitude of the mainland press. There
has been no wrath manifested, or
abuse of island papers, and if the
ferry isan "accomplished fact" we beg
most cordially to congratulate the
Free Press upon its achievement.
We should have done this sooner,
but were not aware, until the Free
Press cania .to hand, that the ferry
liad really been established Tlie
mainland jjSpers have certainly-no
ground to be wrathy about it.
Our Farms.
Farmers along the river are said
to be more than usually active this
year in improving their holdings by
dyking and ditching. The crops
have been very good, the hay crop
having yielded about two tons to
the acre, and oats about 65 bushels
to the acre. Potatoes have also
turned out well in properly drained
land, and fruit and vegetables have
been fully up to the average. The
splendid stretch of fertile country
lying along the river is capable of
supporting a very much larger population than it has at present. There
is yet considerable land unpre-empt-
ed, and much that is unreclaimed.
In several instances, also, especially
along the lower Fraser, the holdings
are too large for the owners to work
to the best advantage, nnd thus
these lands which should be employing and supporting four farmers and
their families are now only employing and supporting one. British
Columbia'farmera will, we believe,
arrive at the conclusion at which
farmers elsewhere have arrived, that
it pays better to have one acre cultivated thoroughly than two that
are indifferently tilled. There are
cases in wliich it would appear that
if part of the holdings were disposed of and the proceeds applied
to the improvement of the balance,
it would be better for the farmer
himself and   for  the  country   in
Coioniai. Defence.—Hon. Henry
Holbrook, une of the pioneers of this
city, now residing in England, writes
to the Cheshire Observer on the defence of British Columbia. Quoting a
statement that appeared in a newspaper indicating that the headquarters
of the defense works would be at Ks-
quimault, Hr. Holbrook says: " This
appears a mistake, as it is 90 miles
from the terminus of the railway, with
San Juan and several United States
islands lying between; and it would be
possible to destroy the towns at the
terminus and the coal mines at Nanaimo, as the Russians did atHoraclea
during the Crimean war. As a commercial man I should say that New
Westminster, a town site carefully
chosen by an eminent Uojal Engineer
officer, is the proper place for headquarters, and that some defensible
works should be placed at Burrard Inlet. If some plan of this sort is not
followed out you are liable to attack
from the sea by Johnstone's straits or
from land by way of the O. S. So far
Victoria has assisted in building up
Oregon and Washington Territory,
but has been Very little use to British
Columbia'except in keeping settlen
away from us. This is now all
ohanged. The railway is across, and
our great resources and mineral wealth
will be opened out from esstern Canada instead of being dependent on San
Franoisco, and we shall want to be
placed in a position to defend Cina-
dian interests."
Mr. T. C. Wells, Chemist and Drug.
gist, Port Colborne, Ont., writes! "Northrop ft Lyman's Vegetable Discovery
and Dyspeptic Core sells well, and gives
the best of satisfaction for all diseases of
the blood," Ii nover fails to root out all
diseases of the system, cures Dyspepsia,
Liver Complaint, etc., purifies the blood,
and will make1 yon look the picture of
health and happiness.

The fifth meeting of the Synod of
the Diocese of New Westminster was
held on the 16th September, 1886.
Tho members present were:—The Kt.

Bell, D. H. W. Horlock, B, Small, H.

(Surrey), G. E. Corbould (New Westminster), W. Mitchell.(Lytton), H.
J, Gamble and M. Lumby (Kamloops).
In the absence of Dr. Trew, the lay
secretary, Mr. W. H. Bates was appointed to aot in his plaoe, Amongst
the absentees, Mr. R. Christian (Sapperton) was reported as having left the
diooeso, and Mr. Charles L. Swanson
8fale) as doceased, since Isst meeting,
ominittees were then appointed as
follows:—The Revs. Irwin and Ed-
wardes, Oapt Tatlow and   Mr. Agas-
i sis, to consider. certain correspondence relating to the parish of Trenant.
The Ven.   Archdeacon, the Rev. R.
'Small; and Messrs. Gamble and Lumby, to consider a communication from
the Synod of Q'Appelle, relating to the
correct designation of the Ohuroh in
Canada. The third oommittee, for
financial purposes consisted of the
Revs. Horlock and Fiennes-Olinton
and Messn, Corbould and Charleson.
The Synod then adjourned Until afternoon. - V
' On the resumption of bnilness, the
Bishop introduced the Rev. Canon
Thynne, a member of the Convocation
bf Canterbury (England) who spoke nf
the interest taken there in foreign
missions, and hoped that bofore long a
board of missions, under the presidency of the Archbishop of Canterbury, would be appointed. He thanked
the Synod for the welcome, accorded
him, and spoke feelingly of the invariable kindness extended toward him in
tho Provinoe, both from clergy and
laity. He hoped tbat the oloae bond
which existed between the mother
churoh and her daughter in British
Columbia would never be relaxed; and
ho prayed them never to tako any
steps which would weaken that connection.
Certain matters relating to the
boundariesofparishes were relegated
to the 'executive committee,, and the
principal of Lorno College ' was added
to the board of education. The reports of the committees were read and
adopted. That relating to the Q'Appelle communication is the only one of
general intonst, being as follows:—
That while it may possibly be desirable that some title should be adopted,
indicating geographical position; yet
no suoh steps sbould be taken without
mature deliberation. We folly concur
in the third paragraph of the petition
(that the name be general, throughout
the Dominion of Canada). As to the
last paragraph, we suggest that delegates be appointed by every diocese in
Canada to oohsider the whole question and report, to their several synods.
After certain minor.' matten had been
settled, the Synod was closed with the
usual Office.

The Ferry slip.
EniTOlt Colombian.—I hope you will

other complimentary epithet, once mon
oall attention to a real grievance to the
travelling public. My own attention has
often been drawn to it of late, as I havo
seen'so.many settlen moving thoir household goods from this to the south aide of
the river. This (Saturday) morning the
ferry wharf is crowded with such goods,
but It must be evident to any one wbo is
not dead to the convenience of others
tbat, in a short time, when the railroad
is occupied with daily trains, it-will he
impossible for wagons to gaiu access to
tiio ferry landing. If the municipal
council is not prepared to furnish a pro*
per ferry landing at once why don't the
oitiseni act in this matter.- When they
do. act they should see to It tbat it be
Elaced where there will be ample room
oth for the boat and for teams to approach It hi safety, out of the way of the
railway track. Tbe site should be selected for the convenience of the traffic anil
not, as formerly, for the convenience ol a
few traders. Tho ferry slip should be
constructed with a view to a proper ferry
boat that could safely carry loaded teams
without unhitching. As this is perhaps
the last time that I may nfer to this
subjeot through the press it may not be
amiss to draw the attention of the gov*
ernment to the faot that the intersection
of the Yalo trunk road with the Fraser,
at the plaoe whoro this ferry should have
a landing on the south bank, is still
blocked np with buildings belonging to
the estate of the late K Brown, The
government should causo tho removal of
those buildings that obstruct the traffic,
and a proper ferry slip should be built
oa the south side of the river.
Governments and municipal bodies
should not allow private interests to
stand in the way of the publio convenience. When it comes to that the peoplo
Bhould revolt. Bythe way, I am glad to
aee that thegovernllient hns at last taken
stone to finish the Scott ijpad. I hope 1
shall yet have cause to praise the powen
that be in EC.

DitBUN, Sej>t. 18^The state entry
of the Marquis of Londonderry into

The marquis was accompanied by liis
wife and they were received in West-
land row by a crowd which cheered
them. Both the marquis and Lady
Londonderry rode from the station on
horse-back. Lady Londonderry, as a
tribute to the Irish peole, wore a dress
of white poplin. When the couple departed from the railway station they
were greeted with cheers followed by
groans. The - marquis recognized the
cjeeting by lifting his hat and bowing
with gaiety to the crowd. The entire
route from the railway station to Dublin Castle was lined with troops.
Buildings wore handsomely decorated
and the streets looked gaily. The Hibernian bank building was conspicuous
by its total lack of • flags, hunting, or
decoration. Kildaire street club house
was filled with people. In Nassau st. a
banner was displayed with the inscription "The Queen and the Constitution." During tho progress, of the
vice-regal procession the cheers were
everywhere accompanied witli groans.
Dubun, "Sept. ,18.—The vice-rogal

Biffin's, Gaudaur began to decrease his
opponent's lead'and at Chisteviok was
only half a length behind. Bythe
time Thorncraft was reached Gaudaur
was half a lenght in front of Beach and
at Pulling station was still slightly in
'the lead. Beach then stopped rowing
and Gaudaur obtained a load of 2
lengths. At Barno's bridge Beach
again spurted and, going to the front,
won by 4 lengths. Beach's time was
18 minutes 60 seconds. It was a fearfully hard race throughout. The weather was clear1'and cold, with wind
from N.-E. The tide was good before

of Beach.

The confederation Life.
1 he annual report of this solidly pros-
fierous Canadian, institution will be found
h another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts and the Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecomiums which
the shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanks to the resolute
manner in which tlie Company has declined to. embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the working expenses of the company bear to the
total income the very small ratio of between 17 and 18 per cent. A point attesting the soundness of the finances of
the Company is the fact that the interest
Income is sufficient to pay the death
claims- -which ih a company of the age of
the Confederation Life is something to be
proud of. The ass ts and liabilities are
set forth in minute detail, and the tables
show that, after making allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, there is a surplus of $282,100
over liabilities and capital combined.
Tbe increase in the assets in the last year
was $260,300. So much for what can be
done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined as the true policy of
the Company, viz:—"To keep its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, unwise, or extravagant expenditure for the
sake merely of increasing new business."

The 8o*CalleaPolsoJilnR'Case
Editob Coiomiian: In the daily
Colottis' of the Uth inst. is a lotter
from W. D. Ferris, J. P., in which he
expresses sorrow for having tele-
graphed " particulars, names of parties, etc.," oonnscbd with the death of
the late Mn,*«eod,: No*, I would
ask, why shoifjjd n*if-«V>r dosiro to express sorrow f ofti'iving" dono so ? If
no blame could bo nttaohod to Dr.
Trew in the case, no harm could havo
ensued from said telegram, aud no sorrow need havo boon felt by Ferris for
having penned it.
The letter boars a distinct contradiction of the meaning evjiaentfy'.de.
aired to be convoyed by, it, and gives
its readers tho impression tbat the
writer feels he has been the means of
exposing malpractice ou tho part of
Dr. Trew, and now wishes to smooth
the matter over.
The statement is made that I requested Ferris to hold an inquest.
That 1 distinctly deny.. I asked him
to come and seal the medicines which
had been used, prescribed by Drs.
Trew and Cooped He then reiuarked
that on inquest must be held, ond he,
a J. P., holding as he does documentary proof of somothin? having been
wrong somewhere, was certainlyJ 'the
person to judge of its necessity and
order an inquest to be held.
Then cornea: " Hb said tho first
dose of modicine he "(Reed) ^administered to his wifo threw lior into convulsions and "mau*o"her black in the
face, with a great deal more; but he
did not toll me fHht'he had been giving her the me(Hdine for fivo days in
reduced doses, Which afterward turned
out to be thoioato?":. I did ax-dim to.
him while he was sealing the medicine
bottles thot the first dose given had
caused convulsions and blackness in
the face, and therefore I had stopped
its administration till after having
seen Dr. Trew and made him aware of
its effects. He examined the mixture
and remarked tjiajf" th'e bliemist had
gone too farty^h ft,"''T*ilt'- advised it,
continuance in smaller doses diluted
with water, and this ndvice_I followed^
Now, this has beeu written" With"iSH,
idea that it would remote 'Sit blaMe to
my shoulders as the administrator of
the medicine, whereas I was Bimply an
instrument injtto1(anrlept Dr. Trew.
If doctors a-tfjot .^jtiujlbeJ Jjromi|cit- j
ously for their, patients, and then in
case of mistakes aud consequent evil
results, lay the blame upon the nitrse,
what use is there in a doctor being
forced to take a diploma before being
allowed to practice his profession*
The public would have no safeguard
whatever.   '*','"-?';   •,'. 'J,'
Any feelilga". of* friendship between
Dr. Trew nnd Ferris are matters of
total indifference to tho publio and
myself; what is at stake are his abilities as a physician, not his private par-
tizanship.    5 £*''.•*'' ..  "
This subject hn«"not boon by any
means exhausted, nor is it thus to be
hushed up. I believo tho rifle meeting
at Ottawa is now over. .LetDr. Trow
return  and  defend hinlself.—Tourtr

Sam Jones.
During bis fint week in Baltimore
Sam Jonos has preached to very large
audiences, notwithstanding some days
the woather.iwjiifav'wable,:;. Atsev-
oral of the meetings in the rink, which
seats about four thousand- people,
there was hot space for the audienco.
Hia preaching lias been tho aubject of
much talk, and divert opinions have
been expressed. Kverybody concedes
that the blows he strikes are very hard
and telling. He says he means them
to be. He . declares . that he knows
what sin is, and: means to fight it, no
matter what hydra-headed shape it
may assume. Candid, out-spoken,
straightforwardJJ'itien. Uny such'talk is
just what Baltimore wants.
Somo of the most telling shots fired
bythe evangelist have been in the
form of aphorisms. Among tliose used
during theweek were the following:—
You pack your preachers in an icehouse and abuse them all the year because they don'tJTsWOat,-   *
Many of us are too decent to be religious. *    "ji )■•     -■■..
I know in rmo churoh whero twonty

two hundred were playing for the

Such Christians as that would not be

be gambling for eaoh other's crowns.
I am a Methodist till I find something with more get-up-and-got about
it.
I never became satisfied in Georgia
till we put leg! on all the barrels and
demijohns in Atlanta and moved thom

I had ntflier lie a man in the truest
senso of tlw word than the best angel
in heaven.
The church ia the last plaoe in wliich
to be solemn, provided you liavo lived
right." ri.'r.J    [Ol |    ■
If I have lived right I'll wear a smile
as broad aa heaven; but if I've been
swindling uid doing wrong, J'll have
one as bioai «s a graveyard..
I want W fce-a grind nian and a good
husband, but God keep me from being
a nice preacher.
I'd rather die on a well-fought field
of battle than run uway and speculate

"Conductor, please don't put rae
oil," said the old woman,
as she stood in the aisle of
a passenger coaoh, begging to be allowed to ride to her destination.
" No, old woman, the rules of this
company strictly forbid anyone riding
free, and orders must be obeyed."
" Please don't put me off," she said,
with tears in her eyes. "You may
have a mother, and somo day she may
have no friends and be compelled to
begin the same manner that I do,
and you would not like to see her refused, would you ?"
"Business is business, old woman.
Taiifnot'lhe cause" of your' being poverty stricken, and don't care about
hearing any of your sentimontai sto-
riev. You.!UUBt pay y&iir fare or I
ahall atop the train and put you • off.
Tarn going' to finish collecting my
fares, and when I return, if you
"haven't your* ticket or faro ready, I
Bhall stop the train and put you off."
The conductor went on through the
train, while the old gray-haired woman
looked up and down the car to seo if
there was not one pitying eye, but'
they all seemed interested ih. something else, and directly the conductor
came back-ahd-said: "Well, have
you got a ticket, or muat I put you
olf ?"
. "-No, no,-" the moaned.-." you would
not put an old woman oil all alone on
such a night as this, would you ?"
" Yes, I'woiild. Are you going to
pay. or must I pull tlio bell-curd (" -
Just then an elderly man seated nt
the far end of the car arose, and approaching the conductor, he asked:
" What's the matter with thc old
lady, conductor?"
"I don't know that it it any of your
business," said the conductor,
11 Oh, you don't, don't you 1"
■ "No,-sir; I don't; and what's more,
people pay their way to ride on this
train, and not to interfere in other
people's business."
''May be; but they-don't pay for
insolence," said the old gentleman.
" Well, I'm going to put her off for
refusing to pay her fare, and if you
don't like it you can get off also.'"
"Itthat sol Well, young mnn, I
happen tu be the president of this
line."
■ "The wha—what!"
" The president of tbis road; and,
by the way, who iB that young man
you failed to collect a fare from in the
rear ond of the car ?"'
" Why—why—tha—that's my brother."
" lt is, eh ? Well, you know the
rules of the company aay' that no one
shall ride free."
" Ye-yes, sir; but be is my brother."
"Well, you and your brother will
get off at the next station unless you
pay your fares. I will take this train
through tu.night. Yeu can report at
the office and get yonr pay. Old wo-
wan, sit down and I will see lhat you
are taken care of until you reach your
destination."
The train sped on at lightning speed
through the darknest nf night, and the
old wohian aat staring vacantly
through the window. The president
aat down by her tide and spoke tender
words to her, for he had a iiiothoiyind
he loved her, too,
But it wat no use talking, for the
could not antwer. She wot dead.
Her eyes were fixed. She had taken
her last ride. They could put her off
now. She would not aay nay. Her
journey o'er the railway of life wat at
at end. The Great Conductor who
collects all fares had brought her to
tho terminus of her journey. Soon
He would collect for the last time.—

Tho question of prohibition bids fair
to assume more thnn usual prominence
in the politics of tho United States
this yonr. In New York the prohibition Republicans have decided to hold
nutate convention. In Pennsylvania
the prohibitionist* novo nominated o

election. Thoy have taken very extreme ground in their platform, whore
they declare thnt "the wholo drink
system of importation, manufacture,

is a state and national crime.' In
Maine and in other states troublo ia
oxpected from tho prohftltionlshi by
