Hull st« -Marie Cinal.
It is atated that the federal government will ask (or an appropriation sufficient for the construction
of a new canal on Canadian territory at Sault Sto Marie. Not many
y«B, ««o. Jt_« United States government greatly enlarged the canal accommodation at the Sault, emoting
one of the largest locks on the continent, But traffic between Lake
Superior and the east has increased
so enormously that the present canal
ia scarcely able to meet the demands
upon ii We believe there are no
serious engineering difficulties in the
way of the construction of a canal
on the Canadian side of the straits,
and it is of considerable importance
that we should have a route of our
own between the great lakes. Some
of our readen will remember how
the str. Ohicora was stopped in the
Ste. Marie canal when she had on
board Canadian volunteers on their
way to straighten out the Riel re*
bellion. At present all traffic pas*
sing between the two great lakes
must go through the American canal,
and it is time Canada hod made
herself independent in this matter.
In the event of hostilities between
the two countries we ihould be in a
pretty mess without a Sault Ste.
Marie canal.
British Oolumbia if the land policy
were more liberal and inviting. We
hope our representatives at Ottawa
will not permit this matter tb rest
until suoh means have been adopted
bi will remove out of the way those
objectionable features which make
the regulations affecting the administration of Dominion lands in this
province obnoxious.
Sunday Traflic.
last Sunday the regular passenger train on the C, P. R. arrived
in this city, frod. the east, and then
departed to connect with the Atlantic express. In the afternoon the
str. Yosemite arrived with passengers and freight from Victoria, and
the Reliance arrived down from up
river. In the evening the str. Belle
arrived from somewhere with a scow,
and the str. Dunsmuir left, we presume for Vancouver, With the exception of the arrival of the regular
0. P. R. train from the east, it is
altogether probable that none of
this Bunday traffio could be excused
on any sound plus. The railway
managers, it seems to us, have no
right to start a through train on
Sunday from this end of the road
any more than to start one from
Montreal The Sunday trip of the
Yosemite cannot be justified at all.
The arrival of the Reliance and
Belle, and the departure of the
Dunsmuir, are probably equally inexcusable. There is no more reason
in ordinary circumstances for a
steamer running on Sunday than
there is for a sawmill, or a blacksmith shop, or any other secular
establishment. It is simply done
to make money, and such a plea as
that might be urged in favor of the
absolute repeal of all Sunday laws.
The effect of this disregard for the.
Sabbath is to loosen all moral restraints in a country where especially they are needed as safeguards
to sooiety, and in this way thoughtless persons make themselves responsible for incalculable harm. We
earnestly hope that those who control the movements of steamers and
railways will consider seriously this
question of responsibility and ask
themselves whether the tendency of
inexcusable Sunday traflic ii for
good or for evil.
Hallway Lands.
A great many efforts have been
made .with a view to having the
railway lands in this diitrict placed
within the reach of actual settlers.
The 'Withholding of these lands
from settlement has seriously retarded the progress of the country,
and lost to us hundreds of the moat
desirable settlers. When the Dominion land office was opened in
this city, and the administration of
the lands wu placed in the hands
of suoh an efficient officer as Mr.
Aikman, it wu hoped that there
would be no further cause for complaint But this hope has not been
realised., Mr. Aikman is doubtless
doing the best he can under the
regulations which have been laid
down for his guidance, but many complaint! atill come from the settlors
and tram those who wish to take up
land for themselves. It is generally
believed that the land regulations
an not at. all liberal enough under
the circumstances. There is nothing we need mon in this province
than population, and the inducements to those who propose taking
np and cultivating farms ought to
be of the most liberal kind. It
wonld be a great deal better for the
Dominion government to make every
bona fide settler a free gift of 160
acres than to let the land remain as
It is now without occupants, In
conversation the other day Mr, Geo.
Butchart, of Port Moody, stated
that' during the past year or so he
had induoed at least 25 Canadians
settled in the United Statei tb come
ont to tint pnvinoe for the purpose
of taking ap land. But, he said,
after these penons had been restored to British citisenship, and
many of them had found locations,
the doubts and uncertainties still
summndhig the lend question seemed
to la**/'traMM an aspect so dis
counting that he began to be dis
luarhiMd. Then are many ether
OanadJans, drifted awwr to the

D. ROBSON, * DIAMOND STORY.
Tk* -Ufut-f- Jf.Bs-ur PDaraadOb-
snn niubBadj
It appears, according to a atory told
by a member of tbe Connecticut Legislature, tbat a gentleman wbo dot*, business in New York is tbe superintendent
of tbe Sunday School of one of tba
churcbea in tbe member's town.
Tbis gentleman bad a diamond stud
tbat flashed astonishingly as he stood
before the scholars. It wu their admiration, and if he bad the sin of
pride it was centered in that jewel.
But one Sunday tbe stone was missed.
It was worth (SOD, and so searching,
no temptation in the way of reward,
could discover it, and it was given up
aslost,   Tbat was abont a year ago.
A few months after the dtuftoBd Ms
lost tbe colored janitor, in all-Uie pride
of bis race, appeared in a flaring icarf
in which glistened a stone. As tbe
janitor was not supposed to be rich
enough to revel in diamonds, white folks
thought he bad been extremely lucky
in buying a 25-oent Bhine atone,
but the colored ladies declared that
Joseph waa sprucing np mighty fine,
and wore tbe moat gorgeous jewelry
in town-
It ao happened that one day Joseph
had occasion to convene for a few
moments with the Bunday School superintendent; Pretty noon he observed that
the superintendent's eye wss fixed ina
steady stare upon the scarf, bnt that
his mind seemed to be abstracted.
At laat he said: "Joe, that's a very
bright piece of glass you wear. Where
didyougetitr
"I found ii"
"Pounditl Where*"
" I found it on the floor of the church
when I was sweeping out a year ago."
"In the ohuroh, a year ago? Let me
aee ifc"
Joe pulled off the acarf, and the business man looked intently at the atone
for a moment.
"Why, that's my diamond. That's
worth $600. Havo you been wearing
it all this time?"
"Icour diamond! True aa I'm living
I found tbat on the carpet, and I picked
it up and put it on the window sill, by
tbo door, 'specting if anybody lost it
he'd come and find it. It was there
about six months, and nobody didn't
come and take it, so I thought it
warn't of no account, and I just put it
on myself."
"Well, Joe, if some people in this
town had thought you were wearing a
genuine 500-doUar diamond they might
avo robbed you, perhaps killed yon
to get it."
"'Specta tbey might There's some
advantage in being a poor man. Golly I
to think I have been wearing a 600-dol*
lar diamond all tbis time!"
Joe's atory was proved os investigation to be correct.

A Dog*. Da-rotten.
J. E. Walter, master of train services
of the Louisville and Nashville Bail-
road, has a dog he values highly. The
dog is a Newfoundland, and has been
raised by his owner from a small
puppy. Mr. Walter has a little girl
who is fond of the animal, a-*, r
affection between the two u interesting*
A few mornings since the little girl
waa left in the room alone by a largo
Drain the grate. She went too near tbe
blaze, ana the dog opened tho -door
nnd entered. He went to her and
began to pull her away by catching ber
clothing in his teeth,
The two companions played about
the room for some time, until thtlatla
child grew tired and sleepy. BhoSwent
too near the fire again, and the; dog-
could not get her away. He pulled at
hor clothes for aome time, but oould
not arouse her.
He then hurried to bar mother's room
and began to act strangely by rubbing
against her hand and catching her
dress, pulling bar towards the door.
She canned him and told him
to go away and find little Nellie.
He made a strange whining noise
with bis month and thtn slowly walked
back to where the little ooe waa
sleeping, unconscious ot ber great
danger.
The dog mado another attempt fo
rouse ber and failed. He then erouebed
down beside bar, between bar and the
flre, taking care to protect herwelL
Mrs. Walter entered tba mob • raw
minutes later and found tbis noble
dog in tbis position whining and crying, white tba bait waa bong singed
from hia back,
Little Nellie wu sleeping sweetly.

THE CONDOR.
AV4b.nl U.w—d OSM-mI tke th. Killing or tlie Oreo! Bird .f tk. Andes.
Tho Chilian Govemment is charged
.with carrying os a novel war againit
tho condor of the Andes, looking to
its extermination. It has issued a
proclamation declaring the bird to be
an enemy to the republio, and offering
a bounty of (5 a head for-every condor
killed.
Tbe gigantic* vulture hu increased
ao rapidly in the past few years
all along tba western slope of the
great mountain ohain that they have
become a scourge upon the', country,
and by a liberal bounty the Government hopes to exterminate or at
least to reduce their number.
A mas who had heard the atory was
-induced to visit Ohili fo the hopes of
making money fo condor hunting, he
being as experienced mountain climber
and hunter.
Five months of persistent hunting
and trapping convinced him that he
wu not smart enough to cope with
the big-winged outlaw wits tbe expectation of getting rich on condor
bounties; ana, farther, that if Ohili
expects to rid itself of the bird every
man, woman and child must take up
arms against it.
Constant contact, with man and
persistent persecution have rendered
the bird so wary and auspicious that
it is next to impossible to get within
gunshot of one. Snares ore the only
means of taking condors with any degreo of oertointy, and even these the
vulture hu learned to avoid.
Tbey have the most wonderful power
ot vision and flight Perched among
tbe mountain peaks above the clouds,
they watch the trails thousands of feet
below them.
If an animal dies and. is left fo
tho plain, these moisten see it Al-
thoftgh-no hw-ane^bui distinguish
the ! presence of -a single bird, in
a few seconds' time they will bo
sees dropping from the clouds like
thunderbolts.
Formerly tbe buster took advantage
of tbis by hiding within gunshot and
picking off one or two condors before they could rise out of range.
Traps were also set sear dead animals.
But this can rarely be done successfully now so wary has tho condor
become. The same wonderful eyes
that keep the trailing caravan in
view or discover the carcass left
lying for its use, note also the hunter's
hiding place or tho trapper arranging
hii snare—-and the bird sits quietly on
itsperoh.
To shoot it on the wing, unless you
are' fortunate enough to lie secreted
near some lofty peek, when the bird
comes sailing through- the clouds to
seek a perch, is entirely out of the
question, for it flies at altitudes such
as no other : bird attains. Tliis
lying in wait far above the snow
line for a chance to put a ball through
a condor is something that requires
more grit and nerve than the average
hunter possesses.
These birds hatch their young among
the snow-covered crags of the Andes
sometimes 12,000 feet above the sea.
The bird hu bees seen at an altitude of
20,000 feet
-...Onco-in a groat while a hunter is
bold enough to clamber among these
crags iu search of nests. The capture
of tho young or the.eggs  is  u
Erofltable u killing a grown bird,
ut   such  finds  are   few  and  far
between,
There an always, two eggs in a
ineat, and as nothing veiitares to make
does so with tbe certainty that none
but the very boldest hunter can approach the nesting place.
There is no more startling sight
than from aome snowy rock so high
in the mountains tbat the clouds
hide the world from your view, to
see one of those immense birds break
through the dense vapor below you,
and sail upward with tbje broad
aweap of Ua wings fo the haunts
where it dwells in solitude. It seems
liko aome winged demon daring to
seek the realms of tbe sky.
Thia bird can stand a range of temperature beyond whioh human existence is impossible. It is at home
among the anpwy peaksi of Chili and
Peru M wall aa upon tba burning aands
of Bolivia.
With a aweep of wing twelve feet in
extent the swiftness -of its flight ia
such that il will nil out of sight,
notwithstanding its vut sire, within a
very few minutes, It may with case
eat its breakfaat in the northern Andes
and twelve houn later rout among the
peaks ot the southern seacoast
If i, wen pouible to get at tho
sella and eggs of the condor there
wonld be aome chanco of extermination, but the systematic sealing of ioy
rka to the height of from 12,000
18,000 feet for the purpose of bint
nesting, even at (5 an egg, is not likely
to prove profitable.
Poisoning the bird might be mado
effectual, but unless some poison enn
be mado so deadly that it will kill
the bird as it stands over, the
carcass that meana lot aKtermination
cannot be made pi*Mil<f_T*
Tho hunter must pnduce ovidence
that ho hu killed a condor before he
can secure the bounty. That evidence is tbe bird's bead, which a
poisoned bird carries off with him.'
- The auk and the buffalo can lw exterminated, asd mas ia master of tho
situation with most birds and mammals, but the condor liu the quality
of serf-preservation too admirably developed to make ita annihilation ever
probable.
When the laat Sonth Amerioan dice
there will be plenty of condon among
the peaks ready to devour bis body,

Address and Presentation.
Mr. J. Fannin, curator of the Provincial Museum in Viotoria, while at
Burrard Inlet a few days ago, looking
for specimens, met with a pleasant
surprise. A party of about a dozen
gentlemen from the Inlet and New
Westminster waited upon him and
presented him with a very handsome
gold watch and chain. The watch is
inscribed:—"Presented to John Fannin by many frienda of Burrard inlet
and New Westminstor, B.C., April,
1887." Mr. Geo. Mead read the following address:
Mb. Fj-ksin.—Wo are glad te meet
you here to-night, as it affords us an opportunity of prcssnting you with this
watch aud chain, as a token of our regard, and we oak you to wear it u a
memento of tho unchanging friendship of
those whose names are appended hereto,
who, while regretting your separation
from ui, yet heartily congratulate you on
your acceptance of your present position,
which, while offering a greater field for
yonr ability, will flu an office iu whioh
we are proud to say no gentleman in the
provlnoo is bettor qualified to give satisfaction than yourself.   Accept, then, this
little mark of our esteem, and, with it
our kindest wishes for your future advancement,  prosperity, and happiness,
and while ticking away the moments of
our existence, wo trust it may bring hack
to you some friendly recollection of those
who sincerely cherish the hope that your
future life may be marked by usefulness,
happiness and contentment.

To which Mr, Fannin replied:
Gentlemen.—I thank you for this
beautiful gift. I cannot plead the excuse
that you have taken me by surprise, and
that I have had no time to prepare myself for this event, for during the lut two
or throe weeks I have received hints that
a surprise wu in store for me; but in
what shape this surprise wu to come
upon me I could form no idea, I had a
dread that possibly it might be another
lady from the eut with a breach of
promise case, and felt very much relieved
when, a few hours ago, I found out to
the eontrury. In looking over this ad*
dress you have jut so kindly presented
mo I notice the names of thou who have
known me since tho early history of the
provinoe, and I remember that this is not
the first occuion on which they have ex*
tended to me the hand of friendship and
cheered ins ou with kind words of en*
couragement, and it is certainly something to be proud of, something worth
living for beyond anything else—the
esteem and confidence of those with
whom we associate. It please, me that
yon have ohosen this spot, above all
others, to present me with this token of
your friendship, this spot which will always awaken pleasant memories—this
house which has for so many years heen
a horns to me—this grand old Inlet whole
every nook and corner I am familiar with
and whose mountain peaks and giant
firs appear to nod to me a kindly greeting on jny,return. I thank you again
for this token of your esteem and I trust
that the friendship and harmony which
hu always been with us In th. put will
continue in the future u bright u the
gold In this beautiful gift.

Ibe Coerctlon Debate.
London, April 15.—Sir William
Vernon Harcourt, resuming the debate on the coetoion bill in the houu
of commons this afternoon, snid the
present alliance between the Liberals
and the Parnellites waa baied on the
Liberal recognition of the faot that the
wisest policy in Irish affaire lay in aome
form of Irish government, which would
tend to satisfy the Irish peoplo. He
twitted Lord Randolph Churchill and
Mr. Chambrrlain with having secretly
consulted Parnell, seeking to make an
alliance with him for their own pur
pose. Referring to tbe conspiracy and
Whiteboy clauses in the propoaed aet,
Mr. William declared they bad sapped
the foundation of all personal liberty,
and would even deprive Irishmen from
forming business combinations to defend their existing rights. The spirit
in which the government would administer the coercion aet if it were
pused, wu sufficiently shown in the
appointment nf King Harmon to
parliamentary under secretaryship for
Ireland. By thia appointment the
government had declared themselves
to be partiuna of,.landlords 10 ad-
minster the bill u agents of landowner! in Ireland, thus becoming In*
•trumenti, to itimulate the wont pas-
•ions of the people and their bitterest
religions prejudleu. The bill would
fail to support the Irish national
league, because the people of Ireland
believed in the league and truited in
it. The effeot of the enforcement of
the bill would bo to make tho government more disturbed and tho league
more popular than Over. Ai to Tory
and Liberal-Union taunts about American gold fostering Iriih disoentent, Sir
William Vornon Harcourt ssid: "There
are none who have leu to complain of
Amerioan gold than Iriih landlords,
for none get more of it. They get it
through their poor tenants:*

manner fin which tbe Company has declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the work*
ing expenses of the company bear to the
total income the very small ratio of be*
tween 17 and 18 per eent, A point attesting the soundness of the finances of
the Company In the fact .hat tbe -rterest

the Confederation Life is something to be
proud of. The ass ts and Jiabilit ei are

White Bron/r Monumrnts.—White
Bronze is a comparatively new substance,
and has come into large use, rapidly, for
special purposes in this country. It has
been found to bo so well adapted for statuary and monuments, that companies
have been for some time established at
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, and St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
and styles. From experiments made by
these companies, it has been found tbat
the material will stand exposure for an
Indefinite period—It is practically indestructible. White Bronze being non-
corrosive and unchangeable, it is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and superior to. copper or antique bronze,
which throws off a verdigris. Thomonu-
menta an cast from refined zinc, and are
given their sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, sand being blown against tlie
work under a high pressure of steam,
which cuts tbe surface, but does not adhere to it A thin film of oxide which
forms on this bronze is indistructible by
the elements} it cannot be dissolved by
water, and air cannot penetrate it, although the liim Is so thin as to be immeasurable. No corrosion, it is affirmed,
can take place,—Bonton Journal of Commerce. Chas. J. Robson, NewWestminster, is agent for the White Bronze
Monuments in.British Columbia. Much

CANADA'S COMIC JOURNAL
GREAT IMPROVEMENTS FOR 1887.
mHK AIM OF " (HUP" Is to set forth, In
JL In an lmparllalandlndopendentman-
nor, the pnKslim events of Canadian pc"'
leal and social life.  Its Cartoons sp-
more definitely and mora pleasingly than
wholo columns of editorial. In tufa pungent, easily appreciable, and artistic style
of prcHcnlliisn subject, tho whole situation Is revealed nt h glance, Tho success
of Grip shown how well this fact Is appro*
clatcd-ltH Cartoons on tbo passing political events of tho country being even
more eagerly sought after thnn the chaste
nud humorous loti-'r-prons of the paper,—
though tho latter Is t qual to lhat of any
similar publication on the continent,
Tho publishers of Grin ate making ex
tensive Improvements for 1888, The old
cover Is to be discarded, nnd the Journal
will hereafter comprise 12 pages, and be
printed on heavy toned and calendered
paper.—overy number being so artistically
executed as to compare favorably with
the best papera on the continent. The
advts. will bo conipri'sscd and more systematically nrranscd; while similar Im
provements will bo mode ns to the letterpress. A new and hnndsome design will
Morn tho titlo page; while tin. Cartoons
will certainly not sutler from extensive
Improvements In the artlstlo department,
Ttie prico of Grip will hereafter be IS a
yoar, wlileli In lower than that of any
Ciaper of Ils kind In America,—most of
hem selling for IA. single numbers of
Grip will be 10 cents,
Twlee a yonr, at Midsummer and Christmas, a beautiful special number will be
Issued, tho number of pages being Increased, and pleasing features Introduced,
particulars of which will ho given In preceding Issues, Theno numbers will be
presented to subscribers without extra
charge.
