It may, however, occassion still further delay, and even then there is a
posribilit}r that the govcrnor'e pardon may intervene between the

r The people of Westminster are
moving with the view of organising
a fruit growers' association. We
do not know the full extent of its
object but from the remarks' made
in connection with it, the inference
is that it is intended to embark in
fruit growing. In tbat case it will
assume moro the form of a company.
That there is money no fruitgrowing one need hardly doubt
Since the cannery process was
adopted all sound trait oan be
utilised and it ean be made most
profitable when conducted on a
large scale. It is possible that a
cannery establishment alone could
be conducted at a profit Farmers
who had surplus fruit to dispose ot
would find at an establishment of
this kind * Market for it, and it
.would be an inducement to go moro
extensively into fruit growing., The
climate of this province i»t«r»inly
well adapted for fruit culture, and
if than was a ready and convenient
market it is possible that it would
be greatly increased. At the experimental farm about to be established, fruit should be one of the
most important departments. What
is chiefly wanted at present is a
knowledge of the best varieties suited to the soil and olimate. The
experimental farm is intended to
solve that problem, and when this is
known, fruit-tree planting can be
safely engaged in. At present, the
information about this matter is
both limited, and uncertain.—Fan-
ameer Herald.
Count Mittkiewicz, whose name
has been for some time very prominently before the public in connection
with the Ohinese-American syndicate, does not seem to enjoy a very
enviable reoord. The Toronto Mail
sums up his former exploits in Amer
ica' as follows: He tret came into
public notice in 1863, when he was
sent to the tombs in New York for
the larceny of a diamond ring from
a young lady who was engaged to
be married to him. In 1873 he mar
ried the daughter of a Rochester
banker, and, when he found that he
could not obtain possession of her
property, treated her so badly that
she was obliged to seek a separa
tion. He then went into the milk
business in Geneva and failed, and
also tarn* to grief in the coal business in Baltimore. In Washington
he is remembered u a seedy-looking
man who haunted the summer resorts on tha Lower Potomac for
several years, and was a well-known
lounger in the hotel lobbies of the
dty. He was always full of great
"schemes" which never amounted to
anything, and he finally disappear-
ed from the country, leaving behind
him numerous disconsolate creditors,
His reappearance now as chief proprietor of tne protective El Dorado,
Santed to him by the groat Li
ung Oliang, is a Ohinese, puzzle,
which the people of the United
Statea um vainly eudervvoriiijj to
solve. Were he ulone in his enterprise, there would be little difficulty
in finding a solution, but the fact
that responsible men are backing
him is accepted aa proof that what
he says is true, and that he has
really obtained from the Ohineso
government, by some mysterious influence, privileges whioh English,
French and German syndicates have
long been striving for. The wholo
affair is a mystery whioh has excited the most lively interest in the
United States—especially among
the Count's creditors.

THE HIEMC1N CHINESE SYNDICATE.
Lonbon, Sept. 10.—The SfaiKfanTs
correspondent at Shanghai says: The
American-Chinese bank syndicate hare
accepted Li Chang's conditions,»nd the
American officials will depart for China
immediately to complete arrangements.
The bank will probably be started in
Shanghai and Tientsen; and branches
willbe opened in Philadelphia and
London in the spring.
THE TRIPLE AUIANCE ENDED.
Fhanktoht, Sept. 19.—The most
important news of to-day is the announcement in the . German Gazette
that, in consequence of the failure of
the Russsan Czar, during his stay at
Copenhagen, to offer to visit the
German Kmperor, it is now fully understood that the alliance of the three
Emperors is at au end. Just as much
as Russia, Germany hss recovered her
freedom of action, and can now, without further regard to Russia, more
closely strengthen hor ties of alliance
with Austria.
A BISHOP BOYCOTTED.
Dublin, Sept. 19.—The feeling runs
high against the Irish Unionists, and
it is intensified by tho bitter spirit
shown by the Orangemen in the north
and their loyalty to tho union. Bishop Healoy, coadjutor to the Bishop
of Galway, is u staunch aud pronounced Unionist He has been boycotted
by tho National League men nt the
fopt^of the altar, and an attempt lias
'been made to interfere with his religious ministrations. The Bishop was
at Glenoe two days last week for the
purpose of administering! the sacrament of confirmation. On the Sunday preceding the peoplo wore notified
and exhorted to attend. On former
occasions a confirmation has been observed as a general holiday, and the
ohuroh has been crowded. But strict
instructions were sent out by the
officers of the League warning the people not to attend, and only the children who had been prepared for confirmation, appeared in the churoh.
The parents and members of the congregation lingered outside the church,
but refused to enter. Bishop Healey
took no notice of the alight put upon
him.
THIS MOBXIXfl'8 DESPATCH)!'.
MHOS! AND CHRISTIAN.
Fans, Sept. 80.— According to priv
ate telegrams which reached Paris last
night, the Sultan Abdul Hamid has
been driven half distracted by conflicting 'threats and counsels ot the
European powers, and intends to s?ek
his way out of his present embarrassment by personally conferring with tho
Emperor William at Ber'.i -. To overcome the expected opposition of tho
old Turkish party to this sensations!
plan, it will be explained that another
Sultan,Abdul Asis,once undertook the
memorable journey to Paris and London, ospitnls of western prnrera, which
then were omnipotent in European
politics, and which Gotinnny appears
today. It is said the sultan's resolution is largely due to his dissatisfaction
with the unfriendly attitude of England;
THE STEIKE ENDEIl.
Mot nt Cabmkl, Pa., Sept. 20.—An
amicable adjustment of all difficulties
at the Union coal and mineral mining
company's collieries was reached last
eveuing at Hickory Ridge, Hickory
Swamp and Pennsylvania collieries.
An advance of 8 per cent has been
grsnted, and 16,000 men returned to
work.
THE CUBAN plot.
Key West, Sept. 80,—A cartload of
dynamite, enough to blow up the city
of Havens, was discovered hidden in
the wood, near this, eity yesterday.
The discovery has created intense excitement, proving the plot sgsinst
Cuba is much more formtdsble than
was at first supposed.
AX IMPENDING PANIC.
New Youk, Sept 80.—The eity
this morning is full of alarming reports
about the impending money panic.
The insrkot is stated to be very tight.
Mr. Stevenson, a rich real estate
broker, but moreover something of an
alarmist, has sent a despatch to President Cleveland, stating that unless
money is poured out uf the treasury
speedily and in large amounts, then
mercantile houses here will he compelled to continue their withdrawal of
credit. The despstch concludes with
the following sentence: "Blame will
now rest on you for the panic all over
the oounffy.' Seoretary Fairohild arrived here last night aud will confer
with responsible business men to-dsy.
EXPLOSION ON THE BEILEHOPHON.
Halifax, Sept. 20.—H. M. warship
Belleroplion, which waa ordered to the
Newfoundland fishing waters, arrived
here last night and has placed in the
hospital the molt who wero terribly injured, by the explosion of rockets.
while in Quebec. The extent of this
terrible accident wu hushed, up in
Quebec. Governor-General Lansdowne
and suite were at the old French capital on the evening of Sejit 10th, and
there was a grand entertainment given
in Lansdowne's honor rn board the
flagship Bellerophon. When Lana-
downe nnd party were leaving for tbe
shore six hundred of the ore* were on
deck, tlio yards were manned, bands
wero playing, dud there was a grand,
finale of explosions. A pile of sixty
or inure powerful rockets lay on the
upper deck, and one of them Ming exploded on deck, ignited the pile ol 00.
In a moment the rockets were shoot- j
ing along the deck in every direction, <
burning and marking the men, many
of whom were more or less injured.
13 were so seriously.burned that the
Bellerophon had to leave Quebec and
come to Hulifax to place the men in
tho envoi hospital.
THE YACHT THtsTlE. '
New Yokk, Sept. 20.—Edmund
Yates cables the following from London to-day: "The question has often
been asked if the Thistle will
return with the cup won by America, My opinion, is she will. Judging
tho yachts by lost year's competitors,
the Volunteer is by no means such nn -
improved design on the Mayflower aa
is the Thistle compared with the Galatea. The Thistle, we well know, is
designed to excel in a light breeze,
and such as sre prevalent on the
American coast and that G. L. Watson has succeeded no one can deny.
He has been aided in no small degree
by Lapthonn and Ramsey, whose silken sails, introuduced by them this
season, catch even the faintest airs,
and without doubt have contributed
largely to the Thistle's successes in
English waters. The firm has refused
to make any of these costly sails for
American yachtsmen or even to supply
the special material. Their pecuniary
loss must be considerable, but yachtsmen will no doubt admire the patriotic
spirit which has prompted thoir refusal
to supply others.

Worcester, Mass., Sept. 20.—The
Democratic state convention was called
to order this morning by Patrick A.

van. Boston, and R. J. Kennedy, of
Holyoke. There was 1800 delegates

Sacramento, Oala., Sept 20.—This
morning a number of large vats, belonging to the Johnston Wins Co.,
were destroyed by fire. The vats ware

was burned down a few weeks ago.
STILL EXTENDING.
New York, Sept 20.—It is reported that the 0. P. R. is to enter Detroit
over the line whioh the Detroit Erie,
and Lake Shore Railroad is to build

distance of a little over 100 miles. It
is also reported here that the Montana
Central Railroad, which will soon
reach Helena, is to be extended to tha
Pacific coast during the next two or
three years, but the route is not decided upon.
NEW YORK STOCK MARKET.
New York, Sept. 20.—Stocks opened extremely active and very irregular.
Changes from laat evening find figures
ranging up to _ per cent, both ways.
Among the active list the market displayed great feverishness, snd the Irregularity continues to be a feature,
but most stocks were weak; during the
first 15 minutes Jersey Central lost 1
5-8, Pacific Mail l_, Manhattan 2J,
Oregon 1, Colorado Coal Go. 2, and
others smaller amounts. A sharp rally
took place and there was a marked decrease in the amount of business, but
the tone continued feverish.

Taesday Eventnc, Sept. 30, 1887.
China and Japan.
Attention has lately been drawn
conspicuously to the large nnd powerful navies which lire being acquired
by two of our nearest neighbors
across the water—China and Japan.
About three weeks ago four new
tinned cruisers and a torpedo boat,
just finished for the Ohinese navy,
were inspected off Portsmouth harbor, and on the 31st ult. they proceeded on their voyngo towards tho
celestial kingdom. These vessels
are under command of Chinese
officers who have completed a course
of military study 'at a British naval
college, and are manned principally
by Ohinese. It is stated that very
soon orders will be issued by the
Ohinese government for several
more steel vessels for the navy which
oven now has attained very considerable proportions. Japan, also,
has been making large additions to
her naval force, and has constructed
machinery by which she is enabled
to manufacture successfully both
her own ships and heavy guns. A
New York paper professes to find
an explanation of theso costly preparations in tbe hostility said to exist between the two countries named.
It is said that when France was engaged in getting possession of Ton-
quin, she very nearly succeeded in
persuading Japan to become her
ally against the Chinese. Japan
was quite anxious to see the flowery
kingdom crippled, but could not just
then satisfy herself that the object
of her ambition would be achieved
by the proposed alliance. France's
performance in Tonquin brought her
neither glory nor gain, nnd it was
only by the expenditure of enormous
sums of money and the sacrifice of
many lives that she was able to get
away without disgrace. One cannot view a conflict between Japan
and China without misgivings. With
their large population, great resources and powerful navies, the
contest would be prolonged and sanguinary; and other nations would
almost certainly be drawn into the
conflict. France and Great Britain
have important interests on the
south and west of Ohina, while
Russia for years has been encroaching on her from the north and west.
France and Russia might come to
the conclusion that China's extremity was their opportunity, and might
mako Japan's hostile operations the
pretext for pushing their borders
into her territory. Great Britain
would probably then become the
ally of the Chinese, to whom she
has been very friendly for many
years; and it may come to pass that
the conflict between the lion and
the bear will be fought out on the
Pacific Oceanl If it should be so,
British Columbia will need to have
her defences greatly strengthened.
The River Fisheries.
We have several times called attention to the importance of protecting the salmon fishing of Fraser
River, and the danger of exhausting
the fish supply by the adoption of
injudicious measures. A few days
ago it was stated in this paper that
large numbers of sockeyes were
now finding their way up the river,
and that they were in the physical
condition known as "spent," that is,
they were ready to spawn before
reaching the natural spawning beds.
This circumstance is confirmatory
of others noted during the season,
all pointing to the same conclusion.
During the regular sockeye season
complaints were made that the run
was very much less than had been
anticipated. It was found later on
that crowds of sockeyes had congregated in the bays and inlets of
the straits, where they had scarcely
ever been seen before. Now many
of these fish, which under ordinary
circumstances should have come up
the river a month ago, are just finding their way in, and they are unquestionably out of season. Theso
facts seem to point to the same
cause, namely, fishing at the mouth
of the river. During tbe regular
season the river mouth was practically barricaded by nets. When the
fish perceived this barricade they
passed on and failed to enter the
Fraser. Having passed the entrance
many of them turned back and
kept swimming about the straits,
while others proceeded in other
directions searching for suitable
batching grounds. ' Some people
doubt that a fish will turn aside on
account ol the obstruction of a net;
but the very mode of taking salmon
in the east proves that they will. In
the Atlantic coast fisheries the nets
are set in clear water where they
can be easily discerned by the fish,
They are placed on stakes, and at
one end of the net is a pound. The
fish come up to ths net, snd observing the obstruction, they follow
along ita course until the pound is
reached, and into this they go. The
process has become a habit so settled
that fishermen avail themselves of
it continually in the pursuit of thoir
business. There oan be no doubt,
therefore, that fish are quite able to
gee * net in dear, or comparatively
clear, water, and that it is sufficient
to turn great numbers of them aside
from their intended course; and
with many faota before us we are
forced to believe that large numbers
of lalraon, which otherwise would
enter Fraser River, are turned awny
every season on account of tho nets
across its mouth. This is a matter
of too serious concern to be passed
ovor without remark. We think
tin: board of trade should take it up,
and if it is believed ufter full enquiry that the practice of fishing at
the mouth of the river is likely to
destroy the business, such representations should be made as will pre
vent this practice in future.
There are u number of varieties of
corns. Holloway's Com Cure will re*
move any of them. Call on your (linguist and get a bottle at once.

pastor. Tlio 1'o.rtiir was calling on Com-
moiloro Vaiiderhilt. when tho following
conversation took r/lace:
'Doctor, what is this about that Mercer
Street property ?'
"'Well,' said' I, 'Commodore, only tltte:
It is in the market. They want 815,1X10
lor itr, and I ventured to offer them $311,-
01)0. It is on loused ground, and I think
it is about worth that.'
"'Well,' sairl he, 'how much havo you
got toward your ST>0,000?"
I felt in iny ponkct playfully and said:
"Well, sir, as near as I can judge ubout
seventy-live or eighty conts."
"How do you expect to pay for It
then?"
"Woll, Commodore, this is mjr* thought
nbout it. I have been here jireriching
some little time. My work seems tr
prosper. I Bhnll propose to the Mercer
Presbyterian Church to let mo have t relr
building for six months. I shall preurh
in it those six months. I shall announce
to the people of New York that I wish to
establish, on an unseetarian basis, u free
church for ull comers, especially for
strangers in the city—a church thnt shrill
be evangelical and uudenoniinatinniil;
and I shall appeal for the monoy in largo
sums and small, Now, Conimodoro, if
God wants me to stay in New York uud
do this work to which my heart seems to
be inclined, tho money will come. If
not, the Mercer Street brethren have
only lost tho use of their property six
months; and it will have been employed
in Christian work. But I believe the
nionejr will come nnd the church go on."
"He looked me straight in the eye and
said;
"Doctor I'll givo you the church I".
"I was mad in a minute. I had not
been made so angry since I reached New
York. I thought thnt Commodore Vanderbilt desired to obtain that property for
some railroad or other business pnrpiro,
or for his estate—that ho hail sone ue.-p
design, and chose to put me forwnr.', supposing that I wus a greenhorn of u parson
Irom the pine forests of North Carolina,
und he could uso me. I lirod up, und,
leaning upon tho table, looked him
straight in the eye, and Baid, 'Commodore
Vaiiderhilt, yon don't know mel Thero
3s not any man in America rich enough
to havo ine fer a chaplain.' I shall never
forget the look ho returned. He bud
been accustomed to be solicited. Here
ho was, making the largest oiler of charity he ever had made, and found a man
refusing to accept $50,000! It wns an
amazed and quizzical look. It was the
look of a man who bad a now sensation,
and could not tell whether he wus enjoying it or not. As soon as ho could frame
a reply he said, 'Doctor I don't know*whnt
you mean. Me have a chaplain I The
Lord knows I've got us littlo use for a
chaplain as any other man you ever saw.
* I want to give you this church, and give
it to you only.   Now, will yon take it?'"
"I paused n moment, and felt that, perhaps, I had mado a mistake in tho man,
and then said:
'"Commodore, I should not like to be
under so great a pecuniary obligation to
any gentleman, that, when I had the
guns of tho gospel directed against tbe
breast-works of any particular sin, and
should flee his head rising abovo them,
I should he tempted to suspend my Are,
or change the range of iny shot.'
'"Doctor, said he, 'I would notgiveyou
•a cent if I did not beliovo thut yon woro
^o independent a man that you would
preach the gospel as honestly to one man
as to another. Now, I believe thnt, and
I wnnt to give you the church.,
"After the discharge of the lightning of
my anger, I felt that a sort of April
shower was coming. My eyes were
moistening. It seemed to me a wonderful providence; and you know we always
think it is a wonderful providence if it
runs with our ideas. I extended my
hand and said, 'Commodore, if you give
me that church for the Lord Jesus Christ
I'll most thankfully accept it.'
"'No,' said he; 'Doctor, I would not
give it to you that way, because that
would be professing to you a religious
sentiment Ido not feel. I want to give
you a church. That's all thero is. It is
one friend doing something for another
friend. Now, if yon take it tbat way
I'll give it to you.'
"We both rose at the same moment,
and I took his hand and I said, 'Commodore, In whatever spirit you givo it, I
am deeply obliged, but I shall receive it
in the name oi the Lord Jesus Christ.'"

—    The Pastor • Vernier.
The spectacle of an army fighting
through its higher officers while the rank
and file are in their tents, would be regarded aa unnatural and absurd. It
should be equally unnatural to see a
church in which the pastor and ono or
two helpers do all the work, while the
rank and file of the membership do little
or nothing. We need not express the
fear that such churches exist. Wo all
know that thoy do. Too many churches
regard their pastors as feeders, and not at
all as their leaders. The pastor Is tho
minister or servant, and he is not by any
means to lord it over God's heritage.
But he should be leader if not lord, and
he cannot better serve his people than by
leading them in the battle against evil,
nnd iu all manner ol good works. There
nro some scores of thousands of ministers
in the United States, but if each could
labor day and night for the extension of
Christ's Kingdom, his own individual effort, however earnest and thorough,
would not comprise his wholo duty. To
do all that he ought to do, he must get
the lay element of his church at work.

Tha Woaderftal Book.
"The Bible has been a quarry for sculptors, a gallery for painters, a textbook for
orators, a standard for poets, and a dictionary of quotations for everybody. It
was a fountain of melody to Handel, to
Mendelssohn, to Haydn; a field of phantasmagoria to Dante; s spectrum of
human lite to Goethe: a consecrating oil
toShakspearei a window in heaven and
a light upon earth to Bunyon; a mystery
ol mysteries to Byron, and a pocket-
companion to Scott"
A book, as well ns a man. Is known by
the company it keeps; and this book hns
kept the grandest company thia world
ever saw. Written by men of all classes,
it comes to men of all conditions, and
meets tho needs ol the universal heart.
Blessed aro thoy who havo tasted its
sweetness and learned Its worth, and who
can Bay, "The law ol Thy mouth is better
to me than thousands o'gold and sliver."

The bathing establishments, or hamams, consist of large octagonal or circular
halls, paved with flagstones around which
run stone seats or very hard divans. In
these halls, which are heated to excess
nnd filled with steam, the bathers have
themselves washed, rubbed and shampooed by employes called telaks, who,
with their hands encased iu hair gloves,
knead the flesh vigorously until it becomes clean, flexible and soft like satin,
Men go to tho bath singly, and remain
there only an hour or two; but women
go there in parties, and sometimes pass
the entire day there, drinking syrups,
smoking cigarettes, eating rhat loukoum
and sweetmeats and sleeping on divans
in) small beds placed around tho bathroom.
The exterior of the hamams presents
nothing very remarkable. They are
largo, low structures, built of brick, covered with stucco and always paved with
marble. They are lighted only by small
round skylights set in the cupolas and
provided with greenish panes, which
throw into the rooms a dim light, resembling moonlight, and very favorable to
repose. A furnace underneath heats the
building by means of pipes which are
run all through the walls even. The
temperature is raised to forty, fifty and
sixty degrees centigrade.
After undressing the bathers envelop
themselves in a long wrap (pechtuma)
mako a delightful plunge into a cloud ol
vapor, which produces, oven in the case
of the leanest, a profuse and debilitating
perspiration. One puts on clogs, which
look Uko small stilts, to protect one's feet
from the extreme beat of the floor.
There aro large white marble urns fastened against the wall, which receive cold
and boiling water by separate faucets; it
is around these urns that all the purifications commanded by the Koran are
mado. Seated upon a little cedar stool,
the bather pours upon his head and body
large bowls of water, which he, heats to
the desired temperature by the faucet*.
The hamams, of which there are more
than three hundred in Stainboul alone,
hnve no fixed tariff. The charges depend
upon the look and the dress ofthe bather
and vary from two sous to twenty-three
francs, ltich pashas sometimes hire
them outright for their families, nnd think
that if they pay less than fort v Turkish
livres, eighteen dollars, they have done
something derogatory to their dignity.
On tho other hand, beggars and poor
peoplo are admitted tree of charge to certain baths, designed for their use; and
this is a blessing to them as well ae to
their neighbors; for these periodical ablutions diminish their extreme filthiness,
and arrest the growth of the vermin
nourished at their expense.

tablislitnont uf a government furtn nn
Vancouver Island as well as the mainland. Tt also states that tho profoBsor

SliiDtrK a BotiLiiEii.—The Pacific
Express whieh was reported to arrive
15 hours late got in at an early hour
this morning, Tho cause of detention
was a large boulder which tumbled
from the hank above on to the track.
It was dark and .raining at the time
the accident ocourod nnd tho engineer
did not see the boulder until too Into
to avert tho accident. Tho engine
was ditched and bodly smashed but no
damage of importance was done to tho
reBt of train. Everybody got u good
slinking up but none woro hurt.

put their proposals in writing and lay
them before the meeting this evening.
The meeting then adjourned until 8

Bided in that city for a mouth before

Cokkectiox.—In the report priutod
last night of an interview with Mr.
McNab a few mistakes crept in, which
we now take pleasure in correcting.
Mr. McNab did not intend to convey
the impression that every calmer ou
the Skeena had packed more than they
expected to. The Alert Bay cannery
only carries more profit in proportion
to the jrirck, us the fish aro caught at
less oxpeiiBO than with other dinners,
and tho 0 men employed are not all
Indiana, a number of thorn are whito
men. Tho Oolachun fisheries are not
at tho head of tho Naas River, but
about 12 miles from the mouth. These
fish, although important to the Indiana,
aro not their chief means of support.
 . . .
l)o not delay in getting relief for tho
little folks. Mother Graves' Worm Ex-
terminator is a pleasant and sure cure.
If you love your child why do you let it
Buffer when a remedy is so near at hnnd ?
That Bridge.
Mr. J. W. Thomson, olerk of Chilliwhack municipal council, informs us
that Mr. Witte. who had tho contract
for repairing Vedder Crook bridge,
haa abandoned the work altogether.
As wo stated last weok, tho bridge wns
carried away by ti flood at the very
time the contractor was at work on vt,
and ho lost not only his work but his
tooli aa well. Tho appropriation of
$313 is now useless because, the bridgo
having been wholly carried away, and
the creek having widened into a good
■feed river, it will require a great many
hundred dollars to erect a structure
sufficient to aland under the cirenm-
stances. Indeed, Mr. Thomson Bays
it is a question whether any wooden
bridge will be secure in case of a considerable flood. There is nothing bo-'
ing done now towards replacing the
bridgo. The municipal council says
the undertaking is altogether beyond
its resources. Mr. Witte, the contractor, haa prepared plum for n new
bridgo, which wore some time ago forwarded to tho government, and if the
government will make an appropriation sufficient for the purpose, the
council will be vory glad to proceed
wjrjh thoorection of the bridgo.
The ferry steamer K. de K., which
up till yesterday had always beon a
mild and innocent little steamer,
changed her tactics, and came out as a
fall-Hedged iron ram. Having adopt-
ed this new role, she coat off her mooring! and sailed for midstream, where
an unsuspecting fisherman was plying
hii innueent calling. Without a Word,
of warning, or the uaual "shorten sail
or I sink you," the K. de K. rushed
fiercely at the fishing boat, which she
struck amidships, and midst the.howls
of the unhappy crew, fairly ground the
smack under hor heel. Thia wonderful and successful manoeuvre was
watched by many people from the
ihore, who were delighted with the
exhibition, and K. de K. itock took a
sudden rise in value In consequence.
It speaks well for the humanity of the
captain of the victorious oraft to note
tbat he stopped to pick up tho survivors of the ill-fated fishing boat. Mr.
Vianen, who until yesterday wu the
frroud possessor of the fishing smack,
eela annoyed at the action Of the K.
de K. in not giving notice of her intentions, and he alio feels certain had
that been done,tiro disaster would have
been reversed and the K. do Ki placed
hon de combat. A long hill of damages waa presented to the steamer
ownen to day, which will likely have
the effect of keeping the warlike K, de
K. peacefully inclined for a long time
to eome.
PnEMOMTlONS or AfrllOAOHIKO DASHER, in the shape of digestive weakness,
lassitude, inactivity of the kidnoy!, pains
in the region of the liver and shoulder
blades, mental depression .coupled with
headache, furred tongue, vertigo, should
not bo disregarded. Use Northrop b
Lyman's Vegetable DUcovery and Dyspeptic Cure, and avert the peril to
health. It removes all impurities and
gives tone to the whole system.
Launched on Ike Beep.
Yesterday morning a large party of
ladies and' gentlemen nssembled at Mc<
Phoo's ship yard to witness tho launch
of tho hull of the uew ateamer being
built for Stewart. & Rowan. While
tho last blook was being knocked away,
Miss Mary Smith, a young lady from
the North Arm, broke a bottle of
champagne over tho vessel's how,_ at
tho same timo naming it the "Richmond." The Richmond slipped off
tho way! without a mishap, and' was
Boon gracefully afloat on her native
element. Her dimensions are as follows: Length of keel, 75 ft:' length
over nil, 80 ft.; breadth of beam, 14ft.
0 in.; depth of hold, 4 ft. 0 in. The
engine will bo 75 hone power, whioh,
it is expected, will givo the Riohmund
all the strength and speed required.
Capt. Collister, the inspector of steam*
boats, examined Ihe Richmond several
times while being built, and on overy
occasion expressed himself very well
satisfied with her. Tho now steamer
is a side-wheeler, and will be used on
tho route between this city and the
North Arm for local freight and passenger traffic

The Henilalimoo Trail.
Another of Vancouver's representative citizens hag got himself into trouble, but unlike tho majority of thoie
iu that city who have found themselves
in tho same petition, he failed to take
the Semiahmoo trail in time and is now
in tho toils. His name is William
Porter, ho hus been a resident of Vancouver for a long time, and especially
in building circles he has been a prominent figure. The principal business
ho followed was building cheap houses,
which at tint, when all sorts of accommodation was Bcarcc, rented at high
ilgurca, and hie income at one time
from them must have boon consider-
uble. For eome .time past Porter has
beon disposing of his property, and,
acorn-ding to our information, succeeded a short time back in getting rid of
the last of it. Among tho lost effort*
he made in tho building line was the
erection of n row known as the "Jubilee Villas." In this speculation Mr.
Georgo . Woods, a contractor, and
another party  wero associated with
Portor, who a couple of months ago
bought out tho interest ownod by the
third party.   By accident Mr. Wood*
learned that Porter had sold the Jubilee Villas, in his own name, to I n
party in Victoria. On learning this
lie Hindu application to Porter for his
third share in tho proceeds, but wm
unable to get the money. Yeiterday
afternoon it was ascertained thill Porter had wound up ull his buaineu
affairs ill Vancouver and had bought a
tickot for tho south, evidently with
the intention of leaving (he country.
Woods again demanded nil legal rights
from Porter, but not being able to get
the satisfaction desired, took immediate steps to protect himself from what
now aeemed a certain loss if his partner got away. Leaving n couple of
men to shadow Porter and prevent
him leaving the city, Mr. Woods, accompanied by. Mr. Ireland, a barrister,
and Mr. Devine, tile city, auditor,
came over at on early hour this morning and got out a capias against him.
Mr, Armstrong, acting sheriff, went
over Willi" Mr. Woodi: to serve' the
capias, and Porter is likely in good
hands by this time. Until the prcient
nothing lias ever been said- against
Porter's character, and he has been
associated with many matters of importance connected with the city. He
is n member of the newly formed
Board of Trade and president of St,
George's Society.

(Correspondence of tho Columbian.)
Okanaoan, Sept. 14.—Harvesting
was nearly finished about tlio end of
August, all being well saved. Two
steam threshers are ut work in Spal-
lumoheen separating the grain from
the chaff, and the returns aro very satisfactory to the farmers. It is reported there will be competition between
a Kamloops firm.aud. the new flour
mill oompany for thia year's wheat; if
so it will be very satisfactory to the
farmers. Messrs. Rashdale St Lnwes
have been greatly delayed in starting
to manufacture flour by aome of the
machinery being delayed; however, it
hu arrived, and tho mill will be in
operation in a few dsye,
Tho opening of the game season was
impatiently awaited - by our nimrode,
ana many prairie chickens, &c, were
bagged the first week. Geese and
ducks are arriving in considerable
numbers, but Inter than they generally
da.
Horao racos are announoed to bo
held at Priest's Valley about tho middle of October, and a number of animals are being put in training. The
inhabitants of that rising town purpose
making it the most successful meeting
yet held there. Other attractions at
the same place and time are a baseball
match between the Okanagsn Mission
and Priest'! Valley dub, and a ball at
the Victoria hotel.
Messrs. Riskey& Withrow and an
expert visited tho quarts' claim above
Cherry Creek, in whioh they are interested with Hon. F. G. Vernon and
Mr, Molntyre, They were highly
pleased with the prospects, and it ia
their intention to erect a stamp mill.
To-morrow Mr. T. D. Shorls will
launch his steamer the Jubilee, muoh
to tlie satisfaction of thole whose
freight bu been stored for weeks
awaiting transport..
Ranohenare now buiy plowing fur
