Adventure Willi a Tiger.
1 was in charge of a party making
a survey for a railroad lino between
Nagpoor and Hyderabad, India (said
Major White), and as thero was no
hurry about the work our party was
as much a hunting as a surveying
party. Wo numbered about thirty-
eight people, ten of whom wero
white men. Owing to the difficulties of tho country we had no saddle
horses, but took along six or eight
{jack animals, and each native also
md a pack to bear. Tho very difficulties in the way of building a line
mado the country a sportsman's
paradise. Twenty years ago thero
wus moro wild and savage game to
the acre in that district than elsewhere-south of Lucknow, but the
march of civilization has doubtless
driven the big wild game away by
this. time.
We woro  travelling  along  the
north branch of the Gadavoy River
—sometimes  upon   its  bank and
again a couple of  miles  from   the
water; sometimes travelling flvo or
six miles a day, and again halting
for a couple of days to Ash or shoot
—when a most singular incident be-
fol   me   individually.    I had left
camp at an early hour in the mom
ing   to   fish.   While I carried my
rifle with me, I had no intention of
going out of my way to find game.
On the previous afternoon I had observed what appeared to be a capital
fishing spot in a bend of the river,
and it was to this place I hastened
as I left camp.   Borne of tho native
servants woro astir and saw mo set
out, but I did not want their services.   It was a pretty thick jungle
between tho camp and the bond, but;
at the bend there was a clear spot
an   acre   in   extent, with a heavy
forest growth and a ledge of rocks
for a background.  As I took a look
around before sitting down on the
bank to my sport I remarked that
it was a good spot for wild beasts,
but as thero was nothing moving I
went right to work with my fishing'
tackle.    Catching a frog for bait, I
Aung in tho hook, and it wasn't flvo
minutes before 1 was meeting with
suoh luck that all thoughts of tigers,
snakes, and hyenas wero driven out
of my inind.
1 had landed half a dozen good
sized fish, and was just then playing
a   larger  one, when a slight noise
startled me, and I looked around to
sec such a sight as has seldom come
to tho eyes of a sportsman.   A full
grown tiger was within five feet of
me, playing with ono of the fish.   It
was the last fish pulled out, and in
its dying agonies it was jumping
abont on tho grass.   Every time it
moved tho tiger would reach out a
paw in a playful way, and once or
twice  ho  struck hard enough to
raovo the fish three or four feet.   I
tell you I was a badly frightened
mnn, and all I could do was to sit
there with mouth and eyes Open.
Tho tiger had crept down the bluffs
and why he hadn't attacked me was
a mystery.   He went from fish to
fish, turning  them ovor with his
paw, and time and again brushing
mo with his tail as ho moved about.
My riflo was ten feet away, leaning
against a bush, and I might have
been idiot enough to try to reach it,
but  for  a warning.   My personal
servant had followod me to sec what
luck   I   had.   He   eamo into the
neighborhood while   the  tiger was
playing with  tho   fish, and, softly
climbing a tree, he uttered the cull
of a bird to attract my attention,
and then sang out:
"Do not provoke tho tigor, master.   Ho is a hiloweelo, and if you
do not cross him he will go away."
He  meant  that the spirit of a
good native had been transformed,
and it was clearly tho common sense
way to follow his advice.   As tho
beast gavo mo no attontion, I turned
to the fish tugging at my line and
landed him.    Ho was of good size
and full of vitality, and the tigor
waited in a playful way until I removed tho hook and threw tho fish
on tho grass.   Then he sprang for it
as a kitten would for a ball of yarn,
and he played with it in tho same
way.   It was laughable, in spito of
the  circumstances, to witness his
actions,   He would run around ih
circles, ns  you havo seen a young
dog do, sometimes almost leaping
ovor  me, and thon again ho would
become tho cat and creep softly forward  to  pounce upon ono of the
fish.    Each one as caught was flung
to him, and it wus a full half hour
beforo   ho grew tired of tho sport.
I   expected he would turn to me
sooner or later, but tho native saw
the change of demeanor first and
called:
"Master, tho hiloweelo is going to
play with you! Be as clay in his
powor."
The tigor suddenly left the last
fish landed und eamo stalking up to
me, purring  like a cat, and acting
very playful. His first move was
to worm' his head under my left
arm, and, I'm tolling you the solemn truth when I say that I
smoothed down his fur as if he had
been a favorite dog. I had on a big
straw hat, and this he got hold of in
his teeth and played with it for ten
minutes, or until he had torn it all
to pieces. I had no more bait to
fish with, and drew iu the line and
sat thero waiting for the tiger's next
move. When he had finished the
hat he came over and rubbed against
mo, and purred in a pleased way,
and I rubbed him with my hand
from nose to tail. I gradually got
over my scare, but was yet very
anxious to know how tho affair
would end. The sun was getting
well up and very hot, and tlie beast
would soon be' seeking his lair. In
thirty minutes from the time ho appeared tho tiger began to,show a
change of demeanor. He acted nervous aud uneasy, and the hair on
his back stood up at intervals. I
judged that ho had got the scent of
my servant, and such proved to be
the case.
I dared not rise to my feet, but I
mado up my mind that if tho tiger
attacked mo I should spring off the
bank into the river. It was infested
with crocodiles, but there -was not
much choice between being eaten by
beast or saurian. Once the tiger
glared at mo and growled, but the
next moment whined as if afraid,
and edged up toward me'as if for
protection. The servant had been
keeping a watchful eye on my
strange playmate, and he how behoved the time hud come for decisive
action. He therefore fired his pistol
and shouted at the top of his voice.
The effect was immediate. The
beast dropped his tail and bolted
for the forest and disappeared. I
had looked him over pretty well,
and had noticed, among other things,
that ho had a broken claw On tho
right paw.
Wo did not break camp that day,
Just beforo sunset, as we' sat in
groups smoking our pipes, a tiger
charged boldly in among'theservants
and seized one and attempted to
make off. We tallied to..prevent,
and tho beast knocked two other
nien over before he was dispatched. When we came to examine
the body I had not tho slightest
difficulty in identifying it as that of
my playmate of the morning.—JV.

Remarkable Surgery.
The   Panama   Casai..—Il   seems
probable that the French  will  make
strenuous efforts to finish the canal;
reports, on the other hand, have been
current ns to the calculations of English, German aud American capitalists,
in view of a possible collapse.   A year
or two will  probably  determine the
success or failure of tho company.    It
has, however, a resourco wholly with-
injj itself—tho reduction of the cost by
making the cnnal with locks instead cf
cutting it to tho sea-level.   This is the
course recommended by tho commissioner of tlio  Fronch   government,
Rousseau.   Upon such conditions the
assistance of the government might be
more readily obtained than if the company should persist in endeavoring to
carry out its original purpose.   In ease
the lock solution should be adopted,
it is to bo kept in mind  that  such a
canal at Panama possesses  ono  unquestioned advantage over one at Nicaragua: the former can, while the latter can not, be converted into a sea-
levol canal.   It may bo obsorvod, bo-
side, that the only plan for a canal at
Panama over submitted  by  tho  engineers of tho United States, that of
Lull and Mcnocnl, in 1875, is a plan
including locks.    Should this design
be adopted, so as  to  get the canal
through, nnd should the undertaking
prove  to   ho   remunerative,   capital
might bo (subsequently rnisird to deepen thq work to tho sea-level.--i'lmufur

John Kellohor, a foreman in the
employ of Crane Bros., nn a rust*
nail into hi. foot about an inch back
from his big toe, on May 20.   Ha
washed the wound out with cold water,
tied a piece of cotton round it, and in
a day the foot was comparatively well
again, the nail having just punctured
the skin.   The other day ho complained of a sore throat.   When the physician, whom he had called upon to consult, asked him to open his mouth, it
was discovered that his jaws refused
to perforin their functions.   Dr. J. B.
Murphy was called in, and at ono.
pronounced the malady a typical form
of traumatic lockjaw.   Tbe man wu
removed to his home, No. 64 Wright
stroct.   An hour later the tetantic
grin set in, and it  became apparent
that eltreine measures had to be resorted to.   A consultation between
Srs. Murphy, Hartman,  and Satin
resulted in the operation below described:   Mr. Kelleher waa put under
the influence of ether.   The sponge
had barely been applied to the sufferer's nostrils when  the initial tetanic
convulsion displayed itself.   He jumped from the operating slab, and made
a mad rush for the window,   Hi. jaw.
were Bet, his eyes protruded,,and b.
foutjht with a frenzied strength which
the combined efforts of four men could
hardly overoome.   Again he was given
the anarsthotic this Sme with better
effect.   The lance was then ?Mn in
hand, and an incision four inches long
and three inches deep was made an
inch and a half behind the hip bone,
The sciatic nerve, which lies to the
rear of tho ball-and-socket joint, wu
then esposed.   Here a strong metallic
Bound was passed beneath the nerve,
and it was stretched downward from
the spinal cord with a pressure of 175
pounds.   Theguh was then dressed
with iodoform  and antiseptics and
was sewed  up,   An  incision   three
incision three inches long wss; next
made in the groin, the knife catting
downward put the femoral artery until the crural nerve   was exposed
Here the sound was again used, and
the nerve drawn downward from the
spinal cord with a pressure of fifty
pounds.   The  idea of treatment for
lockjaw is a new one and was first sue*
cossfally attempted in the'European
medical colleges about sis months ago,
and the cue of Kelleher is probably
the first effort, tn the west.   It wu the
left foot which wu injured.    The two
nerves treated are those supplying locomotion .nd sensation from the nerve
center to the seat of the wound.   The
stretching wu done  to destroy' the
nerve current  which condaoted the
sensations from the scar in the left
foot, produced by the nail to the base
of the brain, also to prevent the conveyance of tbe irritation from the
pyarmie foot to the brain.   The cue is
being watched with great interest by
the medical men of Chicago, u it promises to become  e remedy for the
dreaded disease.—Chicago Inter-Ocean.

The "Soreheads."
On Monday our highly csteeineil
cotemporary of tlio Vancouver Herald gavo its readers nearly ;i wholo
column of hash under this label:
"The Party of Soreheads." The
article was addressed to those persons who have taken an independent stand on political issues and
to those newspapers which refuse to
surrender their judgment ond become the organs of a set of political
partisans. These are they whom
the Herald dubs "soreheads." But
it matters very little what kind of
names are flung at the independents
by newspapers such as our Vancouver evening cotemporary, who is
content to echo the opinions of his
party rather than state his own.
For ourselves we propose to continue the advocacy of the principles
we have hitherto maintained, and
shall not permit the hostility of our
cotemporary to disturb the current
of our reflections. At the very
large and influential public meeting
held in Winnipeg last Thursday
night, reference was made to the
increase of independent thought
and action throughout the Dominion, which was regarded as one of
the hopeful signs of the times; and
it must be clear to every one that
the development of this spirit of
independence will necessarily tend
to bring about greater purity in the
administration of publio affairs and
sweep away for ever the pernicious
doctrine that the interests of party
are to come before those of the state!
tion." If a provincial act 1ms tlie
force of law until it has been disallowed, and is not annulled until tho
process described above is complete,
it would be possible in a great many
instances to take the full benefit of
the act beforo disallowance could bo
peformed.
Mrs. A. Nelson, Bruntfonl, writes:—
"I was a sufferer from chronic dyspepsia
for eleven years. Always nftcr catiiif,'.
an intense burning sensation in the stomachy at times very distressing, caused a
drooping and languid feeling, whicli
would last for several hours after eating.
I was recommended by Mr. I'opplewcll,
chemist, of our city, to try Northrop k
Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, und I am thankful to say
that I havo not been better for years;
that burning sensation and languid" feeling has all gone, aud food does not lie
heavy on my stomach. Others of my
family have used it with best results.

The question of the disallowance
of provincial railway charters is one
in which the people of this province have a deep interest, as well
as the people east of the mountains.
The project to connect the 0. P. R.
with the railway system of Paget
Sound, and of the United States,
by means of a road from Westminster to the boundary, has been for
u long time hanging fire because of
the disallowance policy pursued by
the federal authorities. This scheme
is very different from the one put
forward by the Manitobans. Tlie
Manitoba scheme does not propose
merely to connect Winnipeg with
the Northern Pacific at the boundary, and through it with the Grand
Trunk of Canada. That is only a
part of what is in contemplation.
The real1 purpose of the promoters
is to extend the line from Winnipeg
to Portage la Prairie, there to connect with the Manitoba A Northwestern Railway which is going to
traverse the prairie right up to tho
Peace River country, with a possible extension to Port Simpson.
This will give the Grand Trunk not
only ah entrance to Manitoba, but
will make it a formidable competitor with the <J'P; 11. for the Northwest trade. The 0. P. R. people
are undoubtedly aware of the ulti
mate aims of the scheme, and this
accounts for the vigorous opposition
they ore offering. The Westminster
scheme, on the contrary, contemplates nothing beyond what appears
on the face of it. When the road
has reached Westminster, there is
really no other place for it to go.
Here it will connect both with Vancouver and with the whole railway
system of Canuda through tho 0.
P. R. There is another respect in
which our scheme differs materially
from that of the Winnipeggers. The
Westminster Southern proposes to
join the 0. P. R at one of its western termini, and the effect of it
would undoubtedly be to bring traffic to the road that can carry it
over the continent at the cheapest
rate. That road is the 0. P. R.,
because it is now carrying American
freight from points as far south as
California. But the Winnipeg road
will not act as a feeder to any extent. It taps the 0. P. R. right at
the great centre of trade in the
Northwest, and its purpose is not to
bring traffic to the C. P. R. but to
become a competitor with it for the
trade of that vast region. For these
reasons the two projects are regarded in a very different light by the
federal government and the C.P.R.,
and we are inclined to think that
there would have been no opposition
offered to the British Columbia road
if the Winnipeg scheme had not
come up at the same timo. But in
the event of opposition, it is well to
ascertain what resources may remain
to us. It is admitted, we believe,
that a provincial act has the force
of law until it has been regularly
disallowed, and that any act performed up to the time of disallowance must stand. The question then
comes up, When is an act of disallowance complete. The B. N. A.
act says: "When the lieut.-governor
assents to a bill in the queen's name
ho shall, by the first convenient op
portunity, send an authentic copy of
the aot to the secretary of state.
And if the governor-general in council, within one year after the receipt
thereof by the secretary of state,
thinks fit to disallow the act, such
disallowanco (with a certificate of
the secretary of stale of the day on
which the act was received by him
being signified by the lieut. governor
by speech or message to eaoh of
the houses of parliament or by proclamation) shall annul the aot from
and after the day of such significn-

As a rule, though there ate many ox-
options, a man with a long nail joint
to his thumb, but short nails, should
marry a woman with a short thumb and
long nails.
I don't mean "talons," but the pink
part of tho nail should be long enough
to promlso graces lost in the man's analytical natiiro; these very short nails declare the direr Into hidden recesses; certainly he often dlsoovors diamonds, but
their roughness Is usually appalling, and
the wlfo who will see to their polishing
is the ono thing needful.
Long nails look too muoh on the outside of things, and judge peoplo by looks,
manner and dress; so this combination
should Insure "le Juste milieu." A
girl whoso long pointed lingers and
nails, and long, though slanting line of
head, bIiow much mental power, coupled
with strong Imagination, and a great
tendency to judge by outward eigne,
must be carefully woood.
The man to succeed will be short fingered, and tho first Joint of his thumb will
bo at least as long as the second. He
will never quite lot hor know how much
he cares for her, nor will he overalto-
gther lift the veil whioh shrouds him.
To her his charm will be that there is
always something behind—something
more to know somo day.
These long pointed fingers, with the
line of head described above, love exploitation, but tho mine once opened and
fully explored has no more .interest for
them'.
Tho signs of chiromancy vary so
muoh, according to the type of the hand,
that it is difficult tooullnard and fast
maxims. I oan, however give at least
one, whioh Is a thing ol beauty and a joy
forever in any hand.
When tho line of heart forms a fork, of
which both branohes are exactly equal,
on the mount of Jupiter, which rises at
the base of the first finger, it declares
absolute trueness of heart. In suoh a
person you may fully confide, tor to him
or her deceit Is Impossible.
This fork also tells of one love only,*
for even whon the person inspiring it
has proved wholly unworthy, no other
love will ever replaoe it. Other affections mny attempt to do so, but none
will ever hold the plaoe consecrated to
tho first and last real love.
Tho person Inspiring such love is often
indicated by a oross between, the lines
of .heart and head, the invariable sign of
an inlluouoe ot opposite sex. Theso
crosses, however, sometimes show irksome lnlluences; old loves whioh refuse
to be shelved, and threadbare friendships, straining at tho cords ot old affection in well-meant fatal efforts to advise.
Onoe, when telling the hand ot t foreigner, I found one ot these crosses cutting the lines of heart, head and fate,
and Indicating continued worry and hindrance arising from a woman's influ-
enoo.   I said:
"Your life is crossed and marred by
somowoman. Whatever youtakeupshe
objects to. No matter in what career
you seek buccbbb, she crosses your path
und bars your way."
To my dismay, the fiery foreigner
sprang to his feet, and bringing bis
clenched fist down on the table with a
force all but disastrous to glass and
and chlua, he said:
"AhI I do know her; ehe Is von
Send.   I do wish she would die."
When these crosses rest on the held
line only, tho influences they Indicate
arise from fascination alone, and the
heart is untouched.
I know one lady whom palmistry
saved from a miserable marriage by
warning hor how speariily t.hn aleittot
surrounding an influence of this kind
would wear off, In consequence ot this
warning she took six months to think
over matters, and long before their
termination the glamor had vanished,
and the engagement was broken rait
When the line of heart is broken into
many small pieces, lt argues little luck
In love, and tells ot Inconstancy in
friendship.
A man who with this line combined a
long line ot bead reaching right across
the hand, would be a dangerous rival,
with but little regard to what implements he employed to out out any one
who Interfered with htm.
The fragmentary line of heart telle
of the wish to do It, while the
lengthy line ot head (literally far-reaching) shows the power. This long head
line le always a dangerous possession, Indicating capabilities for swindling.
With a good long line ot heart principle will etranglo speculation, but when
you Hnd this In the hand of a friend
whose line of heart ts defective, cross
quickly to the other side ot the way,
especially If you have anything ot value
about you.
In hands blessed with all virtues, tbls
line merely denotes that delightful talent for getting ono's money's worth out
of everything which thoso who do not
Kissoss it ceaselessly envy and admire,
oubtless it Is a most desirable knack,
but lt everyone had it no one would overpay, so how would any one profit? It la
just as well, therefore, that no two
people possess hands exactly similar,
and that a largehoart so often overrules
a longhead.
Bednessot the lines shows passion;
but unloss so red as to Indicate violence,
they aro, I think, preferable to the
wide, white lines deolarlng egotism. Tho
latter stamp the " Orandoourte " of llfo.
Had Gwendolen Harleth studied palmistry, no falso hopos ot" managing hotter than momma11 would have lured her
into matrimony.

■BIG EATS AHD LONG HUB.'
The Svblntton of tho Texan Sombrero,
and the Advantages of Cowboys Wearing Long Locks*
" Take," says a cowboy qf the plains,
" for Instance, tho cowboy's big-rimmed
hat. Tho fact alono that lt has been
worn without changing fashion for generation after generation Is enough to Indicate that use, not vanity, dlotated its
origin.
"Until reoent years, when the Importance of thoso hats was recognized by
hat manufacturers, and wool, felt and fur
were turned to account in making thorn,
we made our own hats.
"A hole, as near the shape and size
of our heads as we could make it, was
dug in the ground, A large circular
piece of raw hido, wet, soft and pliable,
was spread ovor the hole. Witha bunch
ot gross or buckskin the centre ot the
rawhide was pressed down Into tho hole
until it assumed its size and shape. The
surrounding cirole of hido, whioh was to
be tho rim, was kept flat on tho ground
by constant patting of tho hands all
around lt.
" When the hatwas moulded it was left
until lt was well dried by tho sun. Then
lt was taken to a plnco whero smoke and
heat scorchod lt so that lt was perfectly
water-proof. Then lt was trimmod with
strings and straps and was ready for
use, and that uso is often to throw a
quickly spreading prairlo fire back on the
burned ground beforo it has a chunoo to
gain headway; often to turn wild cattle
and horses in tho direction we want
them to go.
"Whon tbo sun Is scorching hot and
there is a blister in every puff of wind,
this great hat is much cooler than a
straw hat. When tho wind Is blowing
the sand like hot shot in our faces we
would suffer greatly but for the protection afforded our oyes by the big-brlmmod
hat. When tho mud is flying from the
heols of stampeding cattle, or tho terrible hailstorms of tho plains aro pelting
upon us, thoso hats aro the best friends
wo have.
"We wear leather bands on aU our
hats, because cotton, woolen, or silk
won't wear and won't koep tho hots on.
" Nowadays our hats are mado in tho
Host, and mado of the best fur of tho
best water animals.
" Wo can wash them or soak them tn
water for that matter, after they havo
been exposed to all kinds ot weather,
and they hold their shape as if thoy wero
Just out of tho factory. They will do
servleo for many years.
" Tho Stetson hat is the hat most commonly used in the West. Thoy cost
from $8 to $30. If made to order thoy
cost a great deal more. I havo seen
hats that cost $600.
"Buffalo Bill has had many hats ot
that kind presented to him from people
that he has guided safely across the
groat plains in times of danger from
hostile Indians and Mormons.
"Thoso fur hats have taken tho placo
of tho old homc-mado rawhido hats, as
they answer evory purpose.
"As to our long hair, thero are good
reasons why we woar it. Our business
Is out doors, rain or shluo, and in many
changes of cltmato, and wo have found
from experience that tho greatest protection to tlio eyos nod ours Is long hair.
"Old mliieiB and prospectors know
this well. Hunters, scouts, trailers und
guides let thoir huir grow, as a rule.
Those who have been prejudiced ngalnst
lt havosunered the consequences of soro
eyes, pains in the hood, and loud ling-
lug lu the ears.
" A peculiar result of exposure without
the protection ot long hair is loss ot
hearing In one ear, caused by one or tho
other ot the ears being exposed more
when the plainsman is lying on the
ground, Hoalthv hearing andoyeelght
aro of tho greatest Importance to a nuuul,
hunter or herdsman.
" When we see an object at a distance
we want to know whether lt is a cloud
burst coming upon us, a prairie Are, an
enemy in the neighborhood, or what lt
is. The longer we look at lt the more
distinct it becomes, lt onr eyes are
good.
" It won't do for them to be weak and
watery, and, having found that tho
growth and wearing ot long hair not
only preserves but strengthens our sight
and makes our hearing more aoute, we
let nature have her way In the matter,
ond profit by It.
"There are some white men whose Interests call them to live among the Indians, and it Is a fact that by letting
their hair grow they gain favor with the
people they live among, and get along
muoh better."—[K. X. Sun,

And all of Its sweetness forgot

And, watching the gleam of Its gold,
Thero I heard with the rush ot the midnight

more-definitely nnd more pleasingly than
who'e columns of editorial. In this pungent, easily appreciable, and artistic stylo
of presentii'iga subject, tlio whole situation Is revealed at a glance. Tlie success
of Grip shows bow well this fnct is appreciated—its Cartoons on the passing political events of tlio country being evon
moro eagerly sought after than the chaste
and humorous letter-press of the paper,—
though jibe latter Is equal to that of nny
Klinilnrpiiblication on the continent.
The publishers of Grip are making ex
tensive Improvements for 188fl. The old
cover is lo lie discarded, and the journal
will hereafter comprise 12 pages, and be
printed on heavy toned and calendered
paper,—every/number being so artist tncilty
executed as to compai'H favorably with
the best papers on the continent, Tlie
advts. will be compressed and more systematically arranged; whllo similar Improvements will be made as to the letterpress. A new and handsome design will
adorn the title pngo; while tin. Cartoons
will certainly not sutler from extensive
improvements In Mn- tn-tistU: lU-iJiirtmciit.
Tlie price of Grip will hereafter be$2n

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing   Company
(X.I3W:iXEI3.)
ON THE 10TH OP JANUARY, 1887,
tho Columbian* Newspaper ami
Printing Concern wns purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf New Westminster, to bo known as tho
" British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. Tho object of
the now company is to continue the publication of tho British Coi.ush.iajj newspaper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely hy
thoso whose individual interest it will be
to promote tho development, especially
of tho Mainland. Thore will lie no
slackening of the energy hitherto dis*
played in the management of tho establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
The Colitmman will continue to bo entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of such schemes as
may bo considered in the publio interest.
Tho concern is now entirety separate from
any other business, the book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. 1\.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
In his own name and for Ins own benc.it.
It Is desirable that a daily newspaper
should be maintained in this city, and
the new company asks for publio patron*
age on the ground that it is engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks that the Cob*
CMMAN bo judged on its own merits and
supported only so long as its policy is
onconsistt with its professions, In con-
sequence of this business change all ao*
counts duo the concern must be settled
without dolay so that the books of tho
former company may bo adjusted and
closed. Address all communications and

nnd hns purchased 50 ncres of land
just outside the city limits, aud will
engage extensively in fruit nnd vegetable culture, lt is nlso his intention

heavonly ether, wero its treasury richer than the mines of Ophir, yet would

self of every taint of tho sin nnd Bhaine,

"A Few. Passengers."—Tho Colonist says tho str. Rithet loft Victoria for
Westminster "with 9,few passengers."
And the number will become fowor nnd
beautifully less so long ns tho Rithet

The whole passenger traffic is being
driven from the river to Vancouver.
Not only is the Rithet unsuitable for

12| hours to make 70 miles, ns she did
yesterday! And this is tho mail steamer that receives a subsidy of about
$8000 on what ia naturally the best
paying routes in tho province!
Evadino the Issue.—Tlie Vancouver News of this morning refers again
to the $75,000 loan by-law, but discreetly evades tlie points taken by tlio
Columbian. In his first article relating to this subject our cotemporary
insinuated that underhand work had
been dono by those who wished ti)
carry the by-law, aud thnt tho votes
of sovernl persons supposed to be opposed to it were refused. Those are
things we denied, but they are not the
things which our cotemporary now
attempts to justify. H is not u point
of lnw for which wo were contending
at nil, but a matter of fact. Our co-
temporary trots out tho legal phase of
the question, about which we never
hnd a controversy with him.
Nanaimo Relief.—At a meeting of
the relief committeo held in Nanaimo

in cases in which the parties own their
houses, or are living in houses belonging to the V. C Co., and which tho
company has arranged that the widows
may continue to occupy freo of rout.
In the case of those having money, n
deduction to bo mado equal to 4 per
cent, par annum on the money they
havo. All allowances to widows nro
to ceaso when they remarry, and allowances to children aro to cease when
they attain tho ago of 14, It is estimated that tho fund will unable tho
committee to pay tho allowances ns
above statod for nearly seven years.

ormon, who have recently arrived in

fishermen on tho Squaw mish river. In
this river salmon are found in abundance, while the brook trout and othor
valuable fish abound. Tho Norwegians
chose this spot themselves, and are delighted with it. When Mr, McGregor
left them, about three days ngo, they
had commenced to improve the land
nnd build houses for themselves. They
gave him tho following testimonial:
ToD. McGregor, Dear Sir.—Before
parting with us wo beg to tender you
our sincere thanks for your good offices.
You have dealt with us in a courteous
and kindly manner and you have heen
instrumental in finding suitable locations
for homes for ourselves and for several
moro of our countrymen.
C. Karlson,
O. K. Nelsen,
O. A. Lie.
Mr. McGregor says he thinks that
they havo chosen a good spot to build
up a colony. Tho soil is clay loam, .
and alluvial, nnd highly productive.
Ono of tho Norwegians loaves for
his home at once, and will bring out
about forty families with him. This
number, with others thnt will arrive
in tlio sprihg, will help to build up tho
settlement, and no doubt before long
a populous and prosperous little colony
shall have grown in tho valley of
Squawmish river.
