Signs of Drunkenness.
The symptoms of drunkenness, be
it observed, are all paralytic, and
are all due to loss of nervous power
and of voluntary control. The
flushing of tho face shows the paralysis of the small blood vessels; soon
the slip-shod utterances show tho
want of voluntary control over some
of the muscles of articulation; the
double vision indicates the loss of
accommodating power in the eyes;
and llie staggering gaitshows that the
loss of control has extended to the
larger muscles; lastly, the drunkard
falls prostrate in a condition so resembling apoplexy that the most experienced occasionally fail rightly
to distinguish one from the other.
If the intemperate use of alcohol be
persisted in, there soon results a degeneration of all the tissues of the
body. The nervous tissues are, perhaps, the first to suffer, and the
shaking hand and tottering gait are
infallibly followed by a similiar
tottering of the intellectual and
moral, faculties. The stomach resents the constant introduction into
it of ardent spirits, and soon refuses
properly to digest food. The liver
and kidneys give out in n similiar
way, and tlie impairment of their
functions causes terrible dropsy.
Tho heart gets fatty and weak, the
lungs lose their fresh elasticity und
■oon there is not a tissue in the
body whioh has not, in one way or
another, succumbed to the ill-treatment to which it has been subjected.— Family Physician.
Modern Journalism.
In an article headed "Humiliating," the Mainland Guardian of
Wednesday laments the depravity
of modern journalism and winds up
with the elevating and enlightening
remark:—"Nearly a column of pointless rubbish on the, subject of the
manikin's appeared ia t(M'''/)Wltf
Sentinel tt few days ago, which
might have been written, or at
least dictated by the provincial secretary. It is very sad to see an
honorable profession besmeared with
mud, but such is modern journalism." It is possible that the editor
of the Mainland Guardian has the
audacity to weigh "modem journalism" in his own censorious balance!
His vile insinuations regarding the
Inland Sentinel being remunerafcd
or influenced in any way by the
provincial secretary, for approving
of the manikin's introduction into
public shoots, we most emphatically
resent. We regard his reference to
the manikin's as unworthy of any
modern journal, and if it were not
too obscene it should be reported
and condemned seriatim. We regret very much to be forced to classify llie Gaurdiun with that section
of "modern journalism" that is rightly charged with promoting demoralization, Regarding journalism as
a business, and not a benevolent institution, their aim is to make
money, and selfishness forces them
to forget their true mission. Col-
unins fall of descriptions of murders,
arsons, thefts, and other crimes are
given as tho principal news of the
day. The wholo world of violence
and shame, nnrl even of the secret
vice, is presented for daily entertainment nnd study. The grossest
criminals have. their defenders, the
basest travesties of justice their advocates, and the profanest babblers
tlieir apologist. Added to this is
the crime of personal assault indulged in bo frequently by our Guardian
ootemporary. Using this privilege
of public censor, the editor assumes
the right of discussion according to
his own taste or judgment, the
result luring almost invariably that
abuse takes tho place of rational do-
bate and argument. The right of
denunciation is one that is claimed
by all public teachers; and wholesome fears of it is part of thut
whioh deters men from evil doin,',
and punishes them for guilt. Hut it is
a right easily perverted, and
hence the facility wi'.h which men,
moved either hy interest or malice
can turn it to vicious account. No
minus is so lofty thnt it cannot lie
assa'led; no life so noble that it mny
not be traduced. Many a noblo character has a shadow thus thrown over
it a shadow that remains after death
tn obscure the memories of its virtues. This wo are vory than kful is
not true of all journals. But it is
never too late to improve, and the
Guardian may yet become conscious
of its undignified course and take
steps to have itself classified by an
intelligent public among thoso journals whose aim ia the moral, intellectual and social improvement of
the people. — Inland Sentinel.

MST NIGHT'S DESPATCHES.
STILL   TAKADINO.
' London, Oct. 12.—The bands of idle
persona calling themselves " unemployed working men," which hare
taken to parading tho streets during
Uio last two or three days, and whose
processions are invariably followed by
squads of police, who nre under the
impression that the fellows are Socialists tont upon mischief at the first opportunity. Many of the paraders .are
K.iowli to the police, who are getting
tired of following them about, nnd
afid know some of them who have not
done a day's work in years, and there
is danger that tho police will loec their
temper and indulge in Romu pretty
severe clubbing if the parades continue
much longer.
tiERMAN INTEIIESTS.
Bbelin, Oct. 12.—The Germau
government has decided not to send a
war vessel to Morocco but will entrust
to England's representatives the protection • of the Germans in Moorish
territories. This decision is regarded
as a proof ot the existence of tmenlente
cordiah between the two powers.
EGYPTIAN  BEBELH.
Cairo, Oct. 12.— It is officially reported that there are 5000 rebels at
Surras. It is believod they intend to
surround Wady Haifa and entirely
prevent ull outside communication
from that place.
CHOLERA IK INDIA.
Simla, Oot. 12.—During the month
of August 30,780 deaths from cholera
occurred in the northwestern provinces
of India.
DEATH OF LADY  BRASSEY.
London, Oct. 12.—News has beou
received here of the death of' Ludy
Brasscy on board tho yacht Sunbeam,
while on the voyage to Australia.
ADDRESSING THE JURY.
Doblin, Oct. 12.—Mr. Murphy, the
crown counsel, in addressing the jury
in the Mttchellstown inquest to-day,
had not expected much consolation
from them, seeing that they were all
members of the National League or
sympathizers with the League.: It was
useless, he continued, for him to address any jurymen who had openly in
court said that he was in the bands of
the opposing counsel. Mr. Harrington
said: " This is the grossest piece of
scoundrelimn ever heard. No remarks
of that meaning wero made." Mr.
Murphy, proceeding, aaid that Commissioner Condon was responsible for
the riot, in having urged the people to
close up and oppose the police. The
police had a perfect right to be there,
as the meeting was called and held for
seditious purposes. Mr. Harrington
will aBk to-morrow for a verdict of wilful murder against Inspector Browning
and five constables. The report telegraphed last night that Mr, Condon
had threatened to thrash Mr. Murphy
during yesterday's proceedings at the
inquest iB untrue.
THE   CHINESE    IXlNCESSIOSS    REVOKED.
New York, Oct. 12.—The London
.Thins- publishes a dispatch from Tientsin, stating thnt the Chincso govornment has definitely withdrawn from its
agreement with the American syndicate authorizing tho establishment of a
Chinese-American bank and other enterprises, and revoked the concessions
undor it.
TUPPER UNSEATED.
Halifax, Oct. 12.—Sir ChaB. Tup.
per's seat for Cumberland has beon declared void, with costs of case to go to
petitioner. Bribery was ndinittcd, but
the personal charges were not pressed.
A convention has been called to nominate n candidate.
THIS HORSING'S DESPATCHES.
A SHOOTING   AFFRAY.
Grants, N. M. Oct. 13.— Thos.
Wright a ranch owner in Ceballete
valley a short distance south west from
here had a quarrel with a Mexican
ovor ii yearling yesterday. The latter
drew it revolver shot und killed Wright.
Another American present thou killed
tho Mexican and escaped. Wright
lins several brothers. A war of extermination will soon begin. ,
D'aNDLAU'S   DISAPPEARANCE.
Paris, Oct. 13.—The excitement
concerning tho Curmrel scandal continues unabated. Tho public feels
that tho aiTair is only nt a begiuing.
Forty polico agents are busy searching
Paris and securing the country, trying
to find General D'Andlau, not even
the faintest trace of him lins yet been
detected. Crowds nt tho bourso collect nnd talk themselves into tho firm
belief that Wilson, Prest [Grevoy's
son-in-law. nnd Boulanger are implicated deeply. In General D'Andlau's
apartment, the polico have found some
registers containing incriimnnting on-
ti'U-H, Rochefort thinks tho affair was
originally made up by members of the
ministry to injuro Boulanger. He
does not believe that D'Andlau has
succeeded us ho is to old. "This scandal" said Rochefort will cause tho fall
of the ministry. It wont upset M.
Grovey. Ue will simply repudiate
people who have compromised themselves. As for Mme Limousin, sho
will get off with a fortnights imprisonment if she goes to prison at all,
which I doubt. But who ever else
escapes, tho ministry wont.
WAITING FOR NEWS,
Nooales, Ariz., Oct. 13.—His said
that the shoro of tho Bay nt Guaymas
ie orowded by people awaiting tidings
from the swept awny cities and schoon
ers on tho gulf. The storm and tidil-
wavo are the most severe that has ever
beon known. Many of those. who
have wealth are rushing to the scene
of disaster for the purpose of sending
all the aid iu then: power to assist the
Unfortunate.
RIOT IN   TORONTO.
Toronto, Oct. 13.—Cardinal Tai-
clicreau was banqueted last night by
prominent roman catholics. An or*
ange band from the suburbs of this city
accompanied by a large crowd of bloodthirsty rouglis went to the hotel .where
the tlie banquet was being held and
by playing tunes and hurling filthy
and insulting epithets they managed
to provoke a fight. The fight soon grew
into a riot and as several thousands
engaged in it at one time serious results were anticipated. Stones were
thrown by the rioters an4 a number
were |injured. Finally the police
Were sent for it being feared that the
angry crowd would stone and do violence to those at the banquet, lite
police after an exciting fight [with the
mob managed to disperse it, a nam* -
bors of arrests made but in every instance but ono tho prisoners were rescued by friends after being arrested.
STOLEN MONEY BBGOVKftBD.
Chicago, 111., Oct. 13.—John B.
Owens, express messenger of the Pacific Express Co., at Texarkana, who
was arrested on oharge of appropriating $26,000 of the company's money1
last week, has made a confession.
Owens buried the money behind a
woodshed on the outskirts of St. Looia
on Saturday afternoon. He led tht
detective to the plaoe yesterday and
the money was recovered. .
TURN ABOUT   IT MAY BE.
Halifax, Oct. 13.—The schooner
Houlette, hitherto employed as a Canadian fishery cruiser hss been purchased by Capt. Grant, of British Columbia, and will proceed immediately
to the Pacific to engage in Alaska
fisheries. It will be remembered that
the American fishery schr. Highland
Light was captured by the Houlette.
lt is not improbable thit the Houlette
herself may become the prize of American cruisers in Alaskan waters.
ROBBED AND MURDERED.
Los Axuelos, Cala., Oct 13.—It
became known to-day that the charred
remains found in a burned barn at
Oompton on the 27th ult., were those
of Dr. E. C. Harlan, the most popular
dentist of former days. The wife of
the doctor saya that her husband had
gone to Compton with a large sum of '^
monoy, and the general belief "is" that
the|dentist was murdered and robbed
and the body removed to a barn and
the place fired to destroy aU traces of
the crime.
a big fight.
Newport, R. I., Oot. 13.—To-day
wilt witness one of the most exciting
sham tights ever witnessed in thia;
country to determine the beet means
of defending this important naval
station, as well as to instruct young
officers in the mysteries of warfare.
The north Atlantic sauadron will try
to capture this eity whioh will be held
by troops from Fort Adams; over 1000
blue jackets and soldiers will participate. The attack beginsat 12:46p.n.,
when, under a heavy fire from the war
ships, sailors and marines will make a
descent upon Goat Island and try to
capture it, which, if successful, will be
made the center of operations and will
be hurriedly fortified for heavy guns
to be trained on the city. Large
number of visitors are arriving to witness the affair. Admiral Luce wfll
command the naval force in person.

TI>E   FISHERIES QUESTION.
Ottawa, Ont., Oot. 13.—The asser-,
tion that the United States upholds the
idoa of a three mile limit in the Atlantic Ocean and opposes the same Idea
in the Pacific is disposed of by Delaney
as follows: Concerning the doctrine of
international law establishing what fe
known as a marine league belt which
extends the jurisdiction of a nation
into iti seas for a distance of one
marino league or three miles from its
shores, and following all indentations
and sinuosities of its coast, there is at
this date no room for discussion. It
must be acceptel as a settled
law of nations. lb is sustained by the
highest authority of law writers and
jurists. It has boen sanctioned by the
United States since the foundation of
tho government. Well grounded al
it is, this doctrine of law of nations,
it is no more firmly established
as a part of the international
code than that other principle which
gives to a nation supremacy jurisdiction and dominion, over its own inland
waters, gulfs, bay and seas. Delaney
then made numerous references to
prove thnt Russia always asserted that
Bohrings Sea was an inland water aad
that tho United States has always
maintained the same position since it
acquired possession. Enough been
said to disclose tho basis of Russia
right to jurisdiction of Behring Sea
under law of the nations, namely, original possession of the Asiatic coast followed by tho discovery and possession
of Aleutian chain and shores Alaska
north not only to Behring strait, but
to point, Barrow and the' Wen
ocean thus inclosing within
its        territory as within
the embrace of a mighty giant, islands
and'waters of Behring Sea, and. with
this assumption and exercise of * do>
minion over land and aea.

A Doubtful Bird.
A few days ago we referred to
the controversy botween the Victoria Colonist anil the Vancouver
News respecting the experiences of
the steamship Port Victor on her
last inward trip from China. The
Vancouver paper stated that it had
been informed bv Capt. Bird, of the
Port Victor, that his ship approached within three lengths of Esquimalt light before Iw took a pilot.
'fho Victoria paper declared this to
be a wilful falsehood, and intimated
that the News was guilty of manipulating the truth to suit his purpose.
The News repelled the insinuation,
and repeated its statement with emphasis. But when Oapt. Bird arrived at Esquimalt with his steamer,
s representative of the Coknist
waited on him and obtained from
him a fiat contradiction of the statement attributed to him by the Vancouver paper. Tho captain said
that instead of being throe lengths,
his ship was over a mile from the
light when he Wot the pilot! We
must say this looked bad for the
Vancouvor paper, but in its issue of
yesterday morning it proves itself
quite equal to the Occasion. It happened that Mayor McLean and Mr.
D. Ofpenheimer were present when
the News interviewed Capt. Bird,
and over their own signatures these
two gentlemen declare that the captain not only admitted the correctness of the report of the interview
as published in the News, but stated
likewise that he would make the
Victoria reporter take lack what he
had said! Onr impression is that
both the newspapers have been deceived by the captain, who gave
each of them just what they most
wanted. The News was anxious to
show that the Ohina steamers were
subject to serious delays when calling at Esquimalt, and that the
pilots displayed a disposition to retard rather than help the steamer to
reach her destination with speed.
The Colonist wanted to show the
very opposite; and Oapt. Bird seems
to have grasped the situation and
accommodated himself with wonderful facility to the company he happened to be in. We cannot, however, commend either the wisdom
or the diplomatic astuteness of this
young navigator. He has left two
newspaper! calling each other hard
names, and behind him there remains a painful impression that
when facts come in the way of his
purpose, the facts must stand aside.
Worth Considering.
A bonus of $25,000 having been
voted for the establishment of
smelting works at Vancouver, the
Ooknist' rises to suggest that the
people of Victoria ought to do something large in the same direction.
More Ulan a year ago the council
of Victoria offered $5,000 for smelting works, and it was hoped that
this sum, supplemented by the 87,-
000 set apart by the provincial government, would be sufficient inducement to secure the object in view.
But the proposal was barren of result, and Vancouver's $35,000 seems
to have opened the eyes of Victorians to the foot that a still higher
bid will be necessary. The Colonist
claims that there is no other place
in the province where such works
could be carried on with 80 much
economy as at Victoria, because it is
easy of access from the coal mines
of Departure Bay and the ore mines
of the mainland. This claim is certainly not well founded. Westminster ia nearer Departure Bay than
Victoria by a good many miles, and
it is more easy of access for coal
vessels. Ore from the mainland
mines, of which there is likely to
be an abundant supply, can be laid
down here from the cars without
transhipment, and delivered for at
least tl per ton less than in Victoria. Fuel here is abundant and
cheap, and flesh water is as free us
the air. The iron from Texada
Island could also be delivered here
at leu cost than at Viotoria, because
the distance is much less. It is
obvious for these reasons that Westminster is in a much more favorable
position than Victoria for the estab-
uibment and economical maintenance of smelting works. But with
the offer of a large bonus at Vancouver, and the prospective offer of
a larger one at Victoria, it is hardly
probable that such works will come
here without substantial inducement.
Then U no city in British Columbia
more able to bid for such industries
than this. Our debt is like a drop
in a good sized buoket compared
with the debt of either of the oities
named, and when the balance of
the squares have been disposed
of we shall have, practically, no
debt at all. The establishment of
nutting works here is a matter of
verjr great importance, and we think
it ii' worthy of receiving earnest
consideration by our citizens. But
if we intend to bid for this industry,
then ought to be no delay in our
movements. No One can tell how
soon tUft Will be taken for the
erection, of such works. It was
repotted tome *•*• ago that Mr.
O. 1% Wright wm on his way to
San Francisco for the very purpose
of organizing a oompany to put up
•melting works in this provinoe. If
the peoplo ol thll city are of opin
ion that it would bo good policy to
offer a bonus, tho fact of their willingness should be mado known
without unnecessary delay, or they
may arrive at tho point of action
when it is too late.

Is dry and turns hard, until oil is applied,
after which it moves easily. When the
joints, or lunges, of tho body are stiffened
and inflamed by Rhouiliatisra, they cannot be moved without, causing tlie most
excruciating pains. Ayev's Saniapnrilla,
by its action on tho blood, relieves thia
condition, and restores the joints to good
Working order.
Ayer's SarsapariUa has effected, in our
city, many most remarkable cures, iu
cases which baffled the efforts of tho
most experienced physicians. Were it
necessary, I could give the names of
many individuals who havo been cured
by taking this medicine. In my case it
has worked wonders, relieving me of
Rheumatism,
after being troubled with it for years. In
this, and all other diseases arising from
impure blood, there is no remedy with
Whieh I am acquainted, that affords such
relief as Ayer's SarsapariUa.— R. H.

"Alas, poor Yorick I I knew him, Horatio," soliloquizui Deputy Appraiser
Hoffman, ol Philadelphia, as ho stood
among the bales and boxes in the Appraiser's store, a timn-stained human
skull in ono hand and his writing-t.rhlet
and pencil in thi othor. This littlo pieos
ol drama wan en listed by Mr. Holi'man as
he conductor! tin examination of so no
thirty odd oasis of curiosities and relics
sonthtmeby Unite I States naval ofllcors
attached to the South Pacific Squadron.
They came to this port last w.ruk by
the bark Itonus, from Pisaqua, Chili, and
were sent to the Appraiser's store for
examination. The boxes wero consigned
to relatives and friends of the otticeiM in
Washington, and tlieir contents represented the accumulated collection* of extended cruises among the islands oi tlm
South l-.ic.iii! Ocean, with many curious
articles gitliored on the Peruvian tin.I
Chilian co.wts.
The Yorick of Mr. Hoffman's fan rifiil
imagination was probably a dusky heathen with a weakness for tender mis-riort-
ories wh ra well served, and guilty of no
more in Jeiitedtms to his till lor than was
Father Acliu. He was evidently old
when he passed Into spirit land, at (be
few teeth remaining inhls Jaw were worn
tlownnetrly to t.ieir roots. And then

but none of i.toin hid theif busine.se cit'd
attached to sinw where they lived when
at home. Some oi the skulls were
curiously marked hy deeply enrved lines
some p iiMllel an I running back from the
center or the forehead, while others converged from the temples to tho center of
the top.

snnu wick 'd looking specimens nbout

it they migh^easily be driven by a powerful bow clear through a human body.
There were a number of spears, short hut
heavy and sharp-pointed, and some of
them were barbed for two feet of their
length. Each barb was mado of a single
jrrece anil bound upon the shaft with a
cord. The weapons were of many kinds
but all alike ol formidable appearance.
One of the most interesting weapons was
a Maori mace, from Now Zealand, lt

Ono of tbo bundles contained a lot Ol
war-clubs, in shape and size much like
cricket-bats. They were made of wood
closely resembling mahogany, but much
heavier, and were handsomely carved.
Oilier clubs were iron-wood, and were
simply carved balls upon handles.
Some of tbo pieces of South American
pottery were of line workmanship. A
ilat, circular Mask ol fine workmanship.
A Hat, circular flask ol fine red clay had
ior a neck a beautifully carved bead of a
man with t pointed beard. A curiously
shaped lamp from Chimbote, Pern, was
ol coarse clay molded In the semblance
ols duck. One box contained a lot ol
gourds, which were delicately carved in
curious designs. Another package contained a number ol whslesr teeth, some
of them in their nstural roughness and
others beautifully polished. A small
square bale ol what, appeared to be all
oakum was torn apart, and tbe jaws ol a
big shark wore lound within; The jaws
were very tight, but strong, and wero
adorned with six rows bl small, triangular and very sharp teeth.
Among tho curiosities were several
bales of paper blankets. They wero evidently of Japanese or Chinese mako, and
wore made of very thick, soft paper,
decorated with strange devices in diner-
out colors. There was au almost endless
number of small trinkets, specimens ol
minerals, coral and other curios, sufficient
to stock a goodly sited museum,   _

We are told to keep our eyos ovor

the constant tension ofthe mind. When

try to read a newspaper, but close your
eyelids under the soothing undulations

"You might think that only tlie legs
would be exercised by ri ling a Wheel,
but it is a fact that a hckinher feels the
effects first in his shouhlcr.r nnd back.
Tho muscles of the trunk, particularly
about the sides and nlr.lo noil, are also
used a great deal. Although the action
of the legs appears to bo sinrilft* to their
action in walking it is found that six
muscles in tho calf not used at all in
walking are brought into piay. You can
work thoso muscles by rising on your
toes, but in walking they are nut exercised. The speed attainable on ordinary
roads in a ride of four or five hours, taking it comfortably and not Irving to tniiko
a record, will average about eight miles
an hour. It is n good liorso that will
keep up that gait. Expert riders can
out-travel any horse Unit evi r wore shoes
in a twenty-four hour journey, but that,
of course, is a feat of endurance. For
practical, reasonable travel, the bicycle is
superior to u horse on good roads, and is

Isolate the various species of snlmonidrc,

In ponds lone; distances from those in
which they wvr- originally located. Considering that ouch nun.I is to constructed
as to prevent such a contingency, the
occurrence is very reinutkriblu, and can
only be accounted for iu l ivo ways, viz.,
that the fish either burrow thro.tgii holes
that probably aro iiinde by rats nnrl
moles, or thoy lump out of the water ami
so proceed to the next pond, ll is not
likely that they are bomo then™ by
birds, as the appearance of tho fish on

r    The Limit of Chemical Research*
Prof. Bolton expresses the opinion that
the crowning glory of modern chemistry
is the powor of pro hieing, in the laboratory, from norguiiic matter, substances
Identical with those existing in the vegetable and animal kingdoms—it being
known now that the same chemical laws
rule auitnnto and inanimate nature, and
that any definite compound produced in
tho former can be prepared by synthesis
as soon as its chemical constitution hns
boon mado out.—San Francisco Argonaut,

A cow, whioh had recently calved, wns
sold in Ketfonl market to a Worksop
man. Ou reaching Worksop tho cow
was put in field. Next morning tho only

Constipation
Is a universal and most troublesome dis.
order. It causes Headache, Mental Depression, impairs the Sight and Hearing,
destroys the Appetite, and, when long
continued, causes Enlargement ot the
Liver, Inflammation ot the Bowels, and
Piles, Constipation is speedily cured
hy Ayer's Pills.
For a number ot months I was
troubled with Costivencss, in conse-
Suence of whioh I suffered from Loss of
.ppetite, Dyspepsia, and a disordered
liver. My eyes also troubled me. I was
compelled to wear a shade over them,
and, at times, was unable to bear exposure to the light,  I was entirely
CURED BY USING
three boxes of Ayer's Pills. I have no
hesitation in pronouncing this medicine
to be tho best cathartic ever made.*
James Eccles, Poland, Ohio.
I suffered from Constipation, and, consequently, from Heatlatrlro, Indigestion,
and Piles, for years. Ayer's Pills, whioh
I took at the suggestion of a friend, havo
given me effectual relief. I commenced
raking this remedy two months ago, and
am now free from Constipation, tho removal ot which has caused my other
troubles to disappear, and greatly lm-.

people in the east are enabled to procure fresh salmon on their local mar
keta at any season of the year, whioh
is duly appreciated by them, as may
be Men by the large shipments that

The Book Social.—The book social
held last night in the Baptist Church
under the suspices of the Y. M. C. A.
turned out to be a very successful affair. The attendance waa large, the
fair sex in particular turning out in
large numbers, probably tu encourago
the young men as Mr. Austin suggested. Tho programme was well
chosen and several of tho selections
rendered were very good indeed. At
the conclusion of the concert Mr. Austin announced that the result of the
evening's venture was 111 bunks,
some of which arc valuable. He
thanked the audience for the support
given the association nnd hoped their
efforts would meet with the same
hearty support on futuro occasions as
on this one. After singing tho
National Anthem an adjournment was
mado to the basement where hot tea
and coffee, cakes and many other good
things were discussed in a pleasant and
sociable manner.
At tub Cahadun Capital.—An
Ottawa dispatch says: John Robson,
provincial secretary and minister of
inineB of British Columbia, is in tho
city. He will bo hero for some days,
conferring with Sir John Macdonald
and other ministers ou important matters connected with hiB province. - Tonight ho said: "Tho British Columbia
government is anxious to secure a
speedy determination of the boundary
between Alaska and tho province.
There is no immediate conflict of jurisdiction, but that section of country is
growing rapidly. Many gold-seekers
aro going in and finding gold in the
diggings. This, at any moment, might
cause an important issue to ariso between tho provincial and United States
governments. The feeling is strong in
British Columbia respecting tho Beh- ■
ring Sea seizures, and tho province
looks to Ottawa and the imperial authorities to secure a speedy and final
decision on the question of jurisdiction. The claim of the Washington
excutive to exclusive jurisdiction is
held to be a preposterous one, and a
direct antithesis of tho claim they
make in regard to tho Atlantic const
fisheries.
N. Mcfiao, Wyehridgc, writes: "I
have sold largo quantities of Dr. Thomas'
Kclectric Oil; it is used for colds, sore
throat, croup kc, and in fact for any
affection of tho throat it works like magic. It is a sure cure for burns, wounds
and bruises."
The Country's Progress,
On Tuesday Mr. W. D. Ferris sold
his 160 acre farm on Sea Island to Mr.
A. McRae, a gentleman from Ontario*
for $12,500. The amount mentioned
includes about 31,000 worth nf stock
and farm implements. This is ono of
the best Bales of fsrming laud over
made in the provinco and will give
outsiders an idea of how rapidly land
is rising in value. Tbe farm was
bought by Mr. Ferris four years ago
from Messrs. Boyd & Kilgour for the
sum uf 33,000, and thus nets Mr. For
ris the neat sum of 88,600 profit in the
short space of four years, over and
above the profits from the products of
the farm. This is only one instance,
others could be given that would show
a proportionately large increase in
value during the same period.
 . ♦ .	
Prom Untile Creek.
Mr. W. T. Thompson, who arrived
down from Granite Creek to-day, reports that without doubt tlie great
Stevenson quarts; ledge has boon found.
The ledge is in a part of tho country
very difficult of access, which explains
why so much time has been spent in
searching it out. Mr. C. G. Ballon-
tyne, of Victoria, purchased tho northern extension of this claim, and has
just brought out about 600 lbs. of the
rock. It is now nt Hopo, nnd will
come down on the steamer Irving to-
morrow for assay. It is commonly believed that this lodge is immensely
rich, but of that tho future will spoak
moro definitely. Thero has been no
new development of importance at
Granite Creek this season. About
200 white men and 500 Chinamen have
averaged moderate returns for their
labor. Mr. Thompson thinks thore is
not much doubt about the richness of
the mines at Rock Greek, nnd the
holders of mining property tlioro have
a very good-thing.
The superiority of Mothor Graves'
Worm Exterminator is shown by its
good effects on tho children. I'urcliiirre

New Hardware Store,
Aa will bo seon by an advertisement
in nnothor column Messrs. H. T.
Read & Co. havo opened out a full line

Columbia street This building will
be used temporarily until the Maaouio
block is completed, to which they will
then remove, having rented ono of
these fino stores. Mr. H. T. Read is
well known throughout the city and
has tho advantage of being woll liked
by everyone, which, together with his
business ability, ought to mean success for the new firm.
Hall) CilltllM I'llllntrll.
Ait old lady wont into a grocery
storo on Columbia street this morning,
nnd aftor making n fow purchases went
out, leaving her purso ou tho counter.
A Siwaah happened to bo in the storo
at tho timo, and ho, aftor buying n few
things, went out also. Just as he was
going out of the door the grocer, seeing the purse, and thinking it belonged
to the Indian, called him back and
gave it to him. The Siwash, looking
upon it in tho light of a potlateh, pocketed it and wontoff. Afow minutes later
the grocer was horrified when tho old
lady returned and enquired for her
purso which she had left on the counter. A policomnn was secured and a
hunt was made for tho Siwash, who
when found was disagreeably surprised
to learn it wns "halo cultus potlatoh."

A i'lilnamnn Suicides.
Ou Tuesday evening a Chinaman
named Ah Wong suicided nt the penitentiary. Ah Wong was under sentence of ton years imprisonment for
assaulting with intent to kill a foromnn
on tho! rn'lway construction at Port
Hammond. He was sentenced in May,
1883, and had put in nearly 5 years of
his term. Of lato Ah Wong has shown
signs of insanity, and a few wooks
back becaino really insane. On Tuesday morning while out in tho penitentiary grounds ho nttemptod to run
away, but was brought back and lodged
in a cell. Towards evening, ns ho
promised to ho good, he was allowed
out of the cell, but as soon as the
lampB woro lighted ho commenced
burning up all Iub letters and papers.
Tho guard reported this, aud, when
attempting to prevent him burning tho
papers, Ah Wong made a fierce attack
on tho guard, who locked him up
ngain. About 10 minutes to 0 o'clock
the guard found Ah Wong suspended
by tho neck, nnd apparently dead.
Tho body was immediately cut down
and ever}- possible effort mado to resuscitate it, out to no effect. Tho ropo
Ah Wong used for hanging himself
was made from a strip of cloth torn
from tho lower part of his shirt. As
the man wns insane, and tho facts so
simple, no inquest wub hold.
