Monilay irvrnlHK.  July 18. 1887.
The following information regarding tho operation of the Scott Act in
llitltnu is furnished to tho Montreal
Witness: "During the tiftcen months
that tho present inspector has held
ellieo the lines imposed for violation
of tlie Scott Act in this county have
totalled $2,200. Several of the
violators' have decamped instead of
paying their lines much to the satisfaction of the law-ahiding residents.
The opposition to the Act has virtually died out, with the exception
of Milton, where a bitter light is
maintained, hut the Scott Act executive anticipate stamping it out in a
short time. In the township of
Esquesing they used to Bpend about
$.100 a your in their poorhouse.
Now it has dwindled to $50 a year,
and the poorhouse is empty. A repeal vote was talked of, but it is
hopeless."
Mr. .Toljn. Waters, M.P.R, of
North Middlesex', has written a
paper on commercial union for the
Dominion Farmers'Council, in which
he takes the ground that all we
want is reciprocity in natural pro
ducts, and that commercial union
would injure the Oanndian manufacturer and probably lead to complications.with the mother country. Mr.
Waters writes remarkably well and
marshals his arguments with skill,,
but we think he overlooks three
prime facts : first, tho Americans
nre not willing even to discuss partial reciprocity; secondly, England
would not be injured any more than
sho is under tho present tariff; and,
lastly, it is evident that wo cannot
long hold the maritime and western
provinces under the existing regime,
whicli compels them to trade on a
wholly artificial system. What, for
instance, would Mr. Waters say if
he were a settler in British Columbia and were forced, as tho settlers
there are, to buy at Montreal, 2,700
miloaolf by rail, while he was within
easy distance by water of San Francisco)—Toronto Mail.
The announcement that the
Anglo-Turkish convention, which
was positively to be signed on Monday and was nevertheless not signed,
seems to have been received with
comparative apathy in England and
everywhere else. Sir Henry Drum-
uiond Wolff, the special British
commissioner, was, of course, in
structod to leave Constantinople,
which he may not have been sorry
to do under the circumstances and
at this season. In the nature of
the case the matter was not one to
got immediately excited about. Russia and France won the day on Monday, but the end is not yet, and
England may reply by threats or
persuasions that will be moro successful. The Frenoh have now carried their epigrammatic point of
"refusing to sanction and convert
into a right a British protectorate
over Egypt hitherto only acknowledged as ii fact." Bat the English
are in Egypt, and without any
pledge whatever for evacuating it;
and that is where the matter rests.
One objection to tho present status
is that it leaves a cause of bitterness
unsettled. But many people will
at least admit now that Russia's
imputation of tho bribery of Turkish
olticiuls by the British is shown to
be false; or, at least, it was not
England that bribed them successfully.— N. Y. Times.
Mr. Erastus Winiau enjoyed the
honor on Friday of having a park
named for him at Dufferin Lake, in
Canada. He improved the occasion,
in company with the Hon. Benjamin
Buttorworth, of Ohio, to make an
eloquent plea for commercial union
between Canada and the United
States. Ho set forth the advantages, especially to Canada, of the
extended market thut would be
afforded for the products of her
mines, forests, fields and fisheries.
It would seem as though the arguments in support of • this aspect of
the case were simply unanswerable,
but the Canadians are timid about
the fate of their infant and carefully
fostered manufactures. Somo of
them seem to think that it iB bettor
to restrict tho market for all their
industries if some can be built up at
the expense of others within their
own limits. It is a short-sighted
policy which it is for Canada to
maintain or abandon as she sees lit.
Tho advantages of commercial union
would be far greater to her than to
the United States, and the people
of the latter will not get anxious on
the subject until it appears whether
Canada desires these advantages or
not. Mr. Butterworth considered
it necessary to combat the bugbear
of annexation, which on this side of
the line appears too ridiculous for
serious treatment.-iV. Y. Times.

MORB rAHTIOOLARS OF THB ACCIDENT.
London, Out., July 16.-—Henry
Aii»nlK of thiti city, fireman on the
wrecked excursion train, says that
when within u mile of tho Michigan
Central Railroad crossing, he noticed
that the signal waa out for the train to
stop, hut the engineer, Donnelly) did
not try to apply the air brakes until
within about a quarter of a mile of the
smash. The engineer informed him
that the air brakes did not apparently
have any effect ou the train. Angulla
left thu cab and went to the tender,
to Bee if the valve there was atl right.
He found that it was. He then jumped on thu top of the baggage car, and
put on the brake.there. The train waa
now nearing the crossing at a lively
rate, and he prepared to j ump. Climbing down upon the tender he sprung
from it onto the ground, but did hot
sustain any serious bruises. He saw
no more of his mate, until he was
taken from under the boiler of the engine. Tho head was severed from the
trunk, and parts of his arms and legs
had been torn off. The flesh on his
body and limbs wns burned to a crisp.
It wus iinpusjiible for anyone to recognise him. Ue had stuck to his post.
Had the brakes worked, the disaster
would have been avoided.
He reversed the engine and did
everything in his power to prevent the
collision.
THEY WANT THE EAKTIT.
Ottawa, July 10.—Tho Canadian
Pacific claim compensation from the
government on tho ground that the
Onderdonk section was not completed
according to contract. Arbitration
to settle the dispute takes place at
Victoria or Kamloops next month.
Hon. Mr. Pope, minister of railways,
Hon. Mr. Thompson, minister of
justice, and Mr. Schrciber, chief engineer {or Canada, will represent the
government.
The government bas not yet receiv-
ed any communication from Washington
authorities in reference to the demand
/or compensation for the Bchring sea
seizures.

Winnipeg, July 1G.—The contractors to whom the work »f grading the
Bed River Valley railway was yesterday let, are busily engaged to-day in
getting their uultits ready and getting
to the scene of their htbora. Mr.
Strove], who has 42 teams and about
double that number of men, expects
to be at work to-morrow. Tt will take
the afternoon and half of to-im<rrow
to reach the work. Egan Brus. have
38 teams and double the number of
men, and they have four lurge graders
ready for the work. Their outfit has
gone out to work to-day. Mr. Bry-
son's outfit comprises 35 teams nnd 50
men. Mr. Erwin's outfit is not n very
large one, but as he only secured 7
miles, his outfit will be sufficient t<>
complete the work within tlie prescribed time. Deducting the 7 miles
awarded to Mr. Erwin'the balance uf
tho work was about equally divided
among the othor three contractors.
The average prico paid Was ten and a
half cents a yard. The price is nnt
considered high, but will pay tho contractors fairly well.
Mr, Stewart, the government engineer, was asked to*day if any change
had been mnde in the terminus of tho
road at Fort Rouge, and ho n-pbud in
the negative. The work would c in-
mence at the point where the fir** snd
was turned, and go on to the bouniiuy.

further evictions in Ireland until tho
land bill is passed by parliament.
He suggests that a conference on the
subject be held by the leaders of the
various parties.
WINNIVKO'SslUllILEE.
Winnipeg, July 16.—The regatta
here yesterday drew ten thousand
peoplo to the banks of Red River.
The races resulted disastrously to the
Winnipeg crews, the Americans winning every race in which they rowed.
It was a big surprise to the Winnipeg-
era, who had been giving long odds on
their home crews.
The tin works on the river lut night
were very grand.
Plum Creek beat the 90th lacrosse
team for the championship of the Pro*
vince.
The city is full of strangers. The
races will be continued to-diy.
A son of Rev. Mr. Spencer, of Kil-

THE  TI'IIKIHH CONVENTION.
Constantinople, July 18.— Tlie Sultan through the German ambassador
and by direct messenger, tried to persuade II. D. Wolff, British commissioner, to postpone his departure from
Constantinople. In his last dispatch
Lord Salisbury refused to modify the
Egyptian convention.
C.P.B.   AGRESSION.
Ottawa, July 18.—Tit* Canadian
Pacific officials say the company has
contracted to carry carloads of Australian wool from Victoria to Boston aud
other points on the Atlantic seaboard.
This wool was, until this season,
brought in vessels to American porta
on the Pacific coast and shipped over
tho Northern Pacific railway to Bolton
nnd other ports.
THE BLUE LAWS.
Portland, Me., July 18.—The marshal! having ordered druggists not to
sell soda and cigar.., all the druggists
except one small shop closed entirely
yesterday, not even putting up prescriptions. Their action is not opposed by the citizens, who do not bus*
tain the marshall in his attempt to
force the "Blue Law." The druggists
will take further concerted action.
MORE FISHERY TROUBLES.
St. Johns, N. B., July 18.—A special says: Information from parties
along the French shore indicate that
a misunderstanding exists between
French and Newfoundland fishermen.
The commander of the French war*
ship Drac has driven Newfoundland
fishermen from certain points on the
coast at the point of the bayonet, and
the French are encroaching upon fish*
ing grounds hitherto used by English
fishermen.
THE ORIENTAL TRADE.
Ottawa, July 16.—The Dominion
government will send a commissioner
to Asia for the purpose of promoting
trade between Canada and China ana
Japan. All efforts of the Dominion
to extend Canada's foreign trade have
been utterly barren of results. The
foreign is still on the decline. It is
held that it will be impossible to ex*
tend Canada's foreign trade un a profit*
able basis till the'Dominion obtains
the right to regulate commercial treaties on ita own account.

Jas. Shannon, Leaskdale, writes: For
many years my wife was troubled with
chilblains, and could get no relief until
about two years ago; she was then not
able to walk, and tho pain was then so
excruciating that she could not sleep at
night. Your agent was then on his regu*
lar trip, and she ashed him if he could
cure her. He told her Dr. Thomas'
Eclectric Oil was a sure cure. She tried
it, and judge of her astonishment when
in a few days the pain was all allayed
and the foot restored to its natural con*
dition. It is also the bust remedy for
bums and bruises I ever used.

The Provincial Show.
We understand that the people
of Chilliwhack are making extensive preparations for the annual exhibition of the British Columbia
Agricultural Association which is
to be held at Chilliwhack some time
next month. The necessary grounds
have been secured, and buildings
and sheds for the accommodation of
the various exhibits are in course of
construction. . Until a few weeks
ago the danger of a flood was so imminent that some persons began to
doubt whether it would be wise to
make any preparations at all for
the exhibition; but this danger is
now past, and it is found, that the
water came up just high enough to
irrigate thoroughly and enrich the
soil. While in some other parts
of the district crops are seriously
suffering from drought, wo are informed that Chilliwhack farms are
clothed with an abundant verdure,
and the prospects of a full harvest
are first-class. We hope the farm
ers and producers of this district
particularly, and of the whole country generally, will not lose sight of
this great annual gathering of provincial resources. Every year the
importance of making these exhibitions what they ought to be—a fair
representation of the advantages
and resources and development of
the province—is becoming greater
and greater. As the population increases and the number of strangers visiting the province becomes
larger, our opportunities for advertising our resources by means of
such exhibitions are greatly im
proved. It is to be hoped the people will do all they can to make the
coming exhibition the best ever
held in the country.
The Excommunicated Priest.
Dr. MoGlynn is no longer a priest
of the Soman church. The decree
of excommunication has been issued,
and he is severed from Rome. Although this is a terrible sentence to
a Roman Catholic, it does not seem
to have greatly disturbed the rebellious priest who has set himself up
against an ecclesiastical authority
which claims the perfection of infallibility. Dr. McOlynn is a man
of considerable mental endowments,
and he seems to enjoy in a remarkable degree the affection and allegiance of his co-religionists with with
whom he has been associated. The
powerful protest' sent from New
York against the threat of excommunication is proof of this, because
those who endorsed it did so with
the knowledge that by that act they
were calling in question the judg
ment and the infallibility of the
supreme ecclesiastical authority.
Much speculation is being indulged
in as to the future course of the ex-
priest whose delaration of independence has made him famous for
the time. If his convictions of
privilege and personal freedom are
stronger than his allegiance to the
church, he will probably drift further and further away from the influences which have hitherto moulded his religious convictions. But
the habits and beliefs of early days
are not quickly effaced, and after he
feels for a while the full force and
consequences of the step he has
taken, it would not be surprising to
find the excommunicated priest
suing for reinstatement. In his
present circumstances the prospect
before him is hot at all encouraging.
He is an ex-priest without a flock,
an ex-Catholic without a communion. If the change of his opinions
has gone far enough, he may embrace Protestantism and seek still to
employ his talents in religious work
under entirely new auspices. If
not, he may cling to the traditions
of the old faith and enter with
more seal than ever into the promulgation of the secular schemes
whioh have been the immediate
cause of his estrangement. Henry
George, whose economic theories he
seems to have heartily embraced,
would doubtless welcome such a colleague, and the communistic movement for the sequestration of real
property would receive a fresh impetus. But it is doubtful if even
the powerful championship of Br.
McOlynn will be sufficient to ao
complish the revolution aimed at by
Henry George. People who respeot
the rights of possession, and who
look with alarm upon forcible confiscation of personal property, are,
fortunately, in the majority in this
country, and the new doctrine will
find active support only among that
class whioh has nothing worth confiscation and whose circumstances
are suoh as to enlist their sympathies in anything that promises
change. Dr. MoGlynn had the
privilege of choosing his own destiny. He had the option of staying by the church and giving up the
obnoxious theories of Henry George,
or of renouncing the church and
■toying by George. He has chosen
tht latter, and whatever the consequences may be bis career will be
watched with some interest by the
people to whom his name has of
late become a moat familiar word.

TRUE AS_STEEL
The evening meal was just over at
Farmer Bolton's: the big red fire was
raked Into a ruddier blaze, and the candles wero lighted.
Mrs. Bolton was busy at her household labors, and her husband, absorbed
In tha columns of the oity paper that
some kindly neighbor haa brought In,
was too busy to heed the shouts of the
children at their play In the big unfurnished parlor beyond.
Suddenly the farmer laid down his
paper, und pushed the steel speotaoles up
on his forehead.
" Ursula," said he, " how Would you
like to lose Kitten?"
"Lose Kitten!"
The good woman dropped Into the
dish-pan the blue plate she was
washing.
■' It's ten years since we found her on

up as straight and beautiful as one of

would be very hard to part with her

" I'd e'en a'most as soon part with our
liobln," said the wife. "But what
put that tn your head Just now, Asaph?"
Mr. Bolton readjusted his spectacles,
sought out the corner of the paper he
had last been readlng.and slowly spelled
out the following paragraph:

" That's Kitten, sure enough I" ejaculated Mrs. Boiton.fc" But sne had no
corals on, and the embroidery had all
been tore off her dress."
"Likely the rascals did that that
stole her away. Anyhow, lt must beour
Kitten. But why didn't they advertise
for her before?"
Mrs Bolton shook her head,
i " I'm sure I don't know.  What do
you s'pose we ought to do, husband?"
Farmer Bolton rose and opened tha
door, calling:
" Kitten—Bobln—you've played
enough; come In, now."
Robert Bolton, a handsome bright-eyed
boy ot thirteen, bounded In, followed by
a pretty child ot eleven.
" come here, Kitten," laid the farmer,
and she came to his side to hear
for the first tlmo the wholo story ot her
lite.
"And now, Kitten," said the old
farmer when he had finished the tale,
" bring mo the Ink-bottle and a fresh
quill, and a sheet of blue-lined paper."
" Father, what are you going to do?"
" I'm going to write to your folks,
child. I altft no right to keep their
treasure back from 'em, though It
should break my old heart to part with
the little one I have learned to love go
dearly."
"I won't go to them 11 won't! I won't I
I won't I"
" Kitten 1" remonstrated the good farmer's wife.
"I love you I" exclaimed the child. "I
will atay with you. I'm going to be
Robin's little wife, and I won't leave
him."
" But U lt Is right that you should go,
Kitten?"
" I don't care—I don't care. I will
stay with you all 1"
When Kitten was fast asleep In bed,
with the tears yet glistening; on her eyelashes, and one hand—tnb crescent-
shaped sear outlined upon lt—lying on
tho coverlet, Farmer Bolton got out the
Ink-bottle, and the fresh quill, and a
sheet of blue paper, and wrote the letter to B— B—, No. street
" For It's our duty, any way you can
fix It," said the farmer,
By the vory next train, after the epistle had reached the (far-off city, a
tall gentleman came down to Bolton
Farm to claim hie little treasure.
"I have passed nearly all my life
abroad," he said," and lt was not until
my return home, a few months since,
that I learned by some aecldent that a
clue still might bs gained to tho whereabouts of my orphan niece. I had llttlo
hope of ever seeing her again, when I
Inserted that advertisement, and you can
fancy my delight when your letter
reached me. I am alone In tho world,
aud people call mo rloh; now, indeed, I
feel that I am so in very truth."
At first Kitty Bylngton-" Kitten,"
aa she was called by her farmhouse
friends—steadfastly refused to accompany her uncle to hie home.
" I love my father and mother better
than I do you," ehe persisted, " and I
havo promised to be Robin's Utile
wife."
But the persuasions of'her friend! at
length succeeded In overcoming her objections, ond Kitten was taken away.
"You'll forget us all when you are a
line lady, Kitten," said Robert, ae ho
kissed her good-lye.
" I never—never will forget you,
Robin," sobbei the girl. " I'll be your
wile Just the same.   See It I'm not."
And Iheso wero Kitten's last words.
" You must forget 'em, my boy," said
the farmer afterwards, when Robert
Uolton referred to them. "She'll be
richer aud grander than ever yo.i oan
hope to be, and It Isn't fitting that stoneware and fine porcelain should mate together."
Robert Bolton was only > boy, but he
never forgot Kitten's last words..
.....
" I wish you could make up your mind
to like him, Katharine. He fa one ot the
finest young men I know."
"I do like him, unole," stld Kitty
Bylngton.    , /_       *•
"Then, my dear, why do you treat
him with such marked coldness and reserve? It is plain to see that he loves
you most truly and tenderly, and—.
Why, my love, what's the matter? You
are crying."
"Its because I am so vory, very miserable, unole,". sobbed Kitten, hiding
her face on her uncle's shoulder. " I do
love Mr. Beverley, but I can't marry him
because—because—I am already engaged,"
" My dear girl, surely yon attach no
Importance to the childish compact entered into with the farmer's son years
ago."
"I promised him, unole, and I must
not break my word."   t
" But that was mere child's play."
" Robin does not conslderlt so, uncle;
his last letter speaks ot the tlmo when
he shall como to claim me. Oh, uncle,
If I might only dlo first 1"
" Katherlne, you surely will not sacrifice yourself with all tho beauty, talents, and accomplishments that you possess, to bo the wlfo ol a oountry bumpkin."
" I have promised him, uncle."
"You havo not oven seen htm since
you were both ohildren."
" But we have corresponded, uncle."
" Katherino, this is idle folly, an exag-
fierated Idea of duty, to refuse Bover-
ey because of this child's compact."
"I have promised, unole, and unless
he himself releasos me, I shall adhere to
my word."
"May I write to htm, my love, and
put tha case?"
"If you like, undo; but I know his
nature better than you da He will never give me up."
"At all events, the experiment Is
Worth trying."
So Mr. Bylngton wrote a forcible letter
to Robert Bolton, presenting his views,
and patiently awaited tho answer.
It came atlast, brief and decisive. Mr.
Bolton declined to releoso Miss Bylngton from her engagement and would
oome to town to claim her finally the
next Wednesday.
.       .       .       ....
" You confess, yourself, that you do
lovo me, Kitty?"
"I do lovo you I"
"Then why are you deaf to my entreaties."
"lam plodgod to another, Mr.'Bevorley,
Do not strive to toir.pt mo to break my
word. His parents were ray friends
when I was altogether friendless. Bis
devotion has nover fuilod me. Should
I shrink from rewarding htm now?"
The next day as Kitten sat trying to
read, a servant brought her the card of
"Mr. Robert Bolton."
" He is in tho parlor, ma'am."
Kitton rose und wont down.
Mr. Beverley stood leaning against the
mantel.
" Oood morning, Miss Bylngton."
" Oood morning, Mr. Beverley. I—I
was looking for Mr. Bolton."
" Ho Is boie."
Kitten glanced around the room with
a puzzled air.
"Whore?"
Ho took both her bands with passionate tendcrnc...
;"Uy Kitten! my precious little one!
I am Robert Bolton I"
"You, Mr. Bovorlev?";
"Yes, I myself. Kitton, I dared not
claim your hand until, under another
name, I had won your heart. You have
been true to mo—truer than I had any
right to hope. My darling, will you be
my little wife now, In very truth?"
Half an hour afterwards, when Mr.
Bylngton eamo In, Kitten ran to him, all
smiles and tears.
"Mr. Hovorloy?" ho said in surprise,
glancing from his niece to her companion.
" No, uncle, it isn't Mr. Beverley, it la
Robin, my old love, Robin, and—and i
> happy."
rmer Bolt
Farmer Bolton and his wife came up
to tho wedding,.and were the happiest
old peoplo In tho world, exoept Mr.
Bylngton.
" Now, aren't you glad you stood by
lljojitold lover. Kttten?"demanded Robin.

Animal Spirits.
The tox terrier Is always readier for a
walk than his master, and generally en-
Joys himself more thoroughly on the
way. His natural gait Is swifter than
man's, and all animals ot whom that
can be said have a great advantage in
the amount of pleasure which thoy derive, or ought to derive from tho use
ot their limbs.
Tho glory of rapid motion which we
can only begin to realize on the box-
seat of a coach, or In the movement of
skating, must bo something muoh more
Intense to the chamois or tho white-
headed oagle.
Constantly, throughout the animal
world, wo notice that delight In the use
ot muscle and limb whioh in man scarcely survives his majority, but whioh In
them lasts far Into maturity.
Wo are accustomed unconslously to
recognlzu tlielr prerogative In this ro-
spoct when wo apply the phrase " animal
spirits" to a boy who is full of lite and
energy, nnd who enjoys a run ovor the
huts on a breezy day.—[The Nineteenth

"Now eomo and got shaved by my
Ohinoso barber," said my friend, ami a
few minutes later we entered tho " lon-
sorial palaoe " of Soo Chung, at 22 Molt
street.
This, to tho uninitiated, Is even a more
novel oxperlcnee than to dine at a Ght-
noso restaurant. I doubt if thero is any
barber In Boston who would understand
how to uso suoh an assortment of razors
as Seo Chung keeps on hand.
First, tho Clilncso barber lathors the
face ot his customer with a tooth brush,
and then he goes at the beard with a
broad shortrbladed razor, set In its handle
like an nx.
Aftor scraping away with this instrument for awhile, ho cltanges lt for a
muoh narrower and lighter blade, until,
when he comes to shave tlto nose and
the instdo of tho cars, he uses a thin
flexible bit ot finely tempered steel,
which Is only about as brood as a toothpick.
I will confess that It makes a novice
a little bit nervous to havo this glittering llttlo plooo of keen steel go waggling
about thu dolioate tissues aud fibres of
the oars and nasal organ, but if you did
nut seo lt. you would never know that
it was being used upon you, so light Is
the touch of the artist who Is manipulating it.—[Boston Herald.

CANADA'S COMIC JOURNAL
GREAT IMPROVEMENTS FOR 1887.
THE AIM OP "GRIP" Is to set forth, In
lu un impnrtialiindlndepemlentinnn-
ner, tbo passing events of tinuiullan polll-
tenl and social life, lis Cartoons sp'.lak
morB definitely and more pleasingly than
wbo'o columns of editorial. In this pungent, easily appreciable, and artistic style
of presenting a BUbJoot,tho whole situation Is revealed al a glance. Tbe success
of Grip shows bow well this fact Is appreciated—Its Cartoons on the passing political events of the country being even
moro eagerly sought after than the chaste
nnd humorous letter-press of the paper,—
though the hitler Is equal to that of nny
slmllnrjJuhliCutlQn on tbe continent.
Tho I'Shllsbersof Grip aro making, ox
tensive Improvements for \m\. The old
cover Is to lie discarded, mid the Journal
will hereafter comprise 13 pages, and be
printed on heavy toned nnd calendered
paper,—every number being sonHisMctUly
executed as to pQinpam favorably with
the best papers on the continent. The
advts. will he compressed and more systematically arranged; while similar lm*
provemenls will be made as to tbo letterpress. A new nnd handsome design will
adorn tho title page; while tli'i Cartoons
will certainly not suiter from extensive
Improvements In tho arlfsileriopurtmont.
The price of Grip will hereafter bo$2n
year, which is lower than lhat of anv
paper of Its kind In America,—most of
them selllm* for 95. Single numbers of
Grip will ho 10 cent*.
Twice a year, at Midsummer and Christmas, a beautiful special number will be
issued, the number of pages being Increased, and pleasing features introduced,
particulars of which will he given In preceding issues, These numbers will bo
presented to subscribers without extra
charge.

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
U-sIMXTEDJ
ON THE lOTIf OF JANUA11Y, 1S87,
tho Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern wns pnrchnacil by n
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf Now Westminster, to be known as the
" British .Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern has been for
nearly a yoar owned and controlled hy
tlio llritish Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of Now Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. The object of
the new company is to continue tho publication of tho British Columwan news*
paper and cany on a Kcncral printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely hy
thoso whoso individual interest it will bo
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland, Thero will be no
slackening of the energy hitherto displayed in tbo management of tho establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their mouey.
The Columbian will continue to bo entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to tho advancement of such schemes as
may bo considered in the publio Interest,
The concern is now entirely soparate from
tiny other business, the book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. K.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
in his own namo nnd for his own benefit.
It is desirable that a daily newspaper
should be maintained in this city, and*
tho new company asks for public patronage ou the ground that it is engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It nsks that the Columbian bo judged on its own merits and
supported only so long as its policy Is
enconsistt with its professions. In consequence of this business change all no*
counts due tho concern must bo settled
without delay so that tho books of tlio
former company may bo adjusted and
closed. Address ,> 1 lOinmunioations and

Miss Mary Campbell, Elm, writes:—
"After taking four bottles of Northrop
k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and
Dyspeptic Cure, I feel as if I were a new
person, I had heen troubled with Dyspepsia for a Dumber of years, and tried
mnny remedies, but of no avail, until I
used this celebrated Dyspeptic Cure."
For all impurities of the Blood, Sick
Headache, Liver and Kidney Complaints,
Costiveness, etc., it is the best medicine

Drowning or Charles Kent.
On Saturday afternoon Charles W.
Kent, only eon of Dr. Wm. Kent,
was drowned nt Ladiiera, Tlio do-
ceased wus returning from the field to
the house about ti o'clock with his
fathor and n cousin from Iowa named
Arthur Havolaud. The two young
men stopped at Crescent Creek, and,
it seems, went into the water to bathe.
After proceeding to the house Dr.
Kent heard a scrcnm, but thought tho
boys wero having some fun among
themselves, A Becond call, evidently
from a person in distress, however,
brought tho doctor down to tho water
when ho was horrified to find his son
drowned und his cousin struggling in
the water almost exhausted. With
his help young Havoland was brought
to shore, and tho noigubciis having
beon mudo aware of tho accident,
bonts put out immediately to search
for tlio body of Charles, In ubout
half an hour tho body was found, and
for a long timo efforts wero made to
restore animation but without success
—tho spirit had gono. .It is supposed
deceased wns siozed with cramps in tho
water and beenmo helpless. Havoland
says ho heard him call out, ''Help,
Arthur." whereupon ho went to him
and found him helpless. He cnught
hold of him and tried to get him
ashore, but found tho task too much
for him and wns senrcely able to save
himself. Tho remains of young Kent
woro brought up to this city by tho
str. Rithet yesterday and interred in
tho cemetery. Tho corpse was taken
from tho steamer to tho Methodist
church, whero a brief service was held,
attended by a largo number of sympathising friends. The service there and
at the grave was read by Mr. C. 0,
Fisher, acting pastor. Among thoso
who eamo up from Ladners were
Messrs. Jno. Kirkland, Benson, Rob-
ortson, Byron, and others. Charles
Kent was 21 years of ago, nn only
son, and, like his father, was a staunch
reformer, and resolutely opposed tho
prevailing vices of the times. His
death is a torriblo blow to his aged
parents, who arc completely broken
down by tho event. Dr. Kent asks
us to express his doop gratitude to
those who havo manifested so much
kindness and sympathy in tho hour of
his extreme sorrow. Wo beliovo he
intends to offer his wholo estate for
sale, and givo up tho business of farming which he was'carrying on chiefly
for tho sake of the son who has been
taken away. Wo are suro ho and Ins.
wifo and daughter (Mrs. Benson) will
havo tho sincoro sympathy of all who
know them.

The Thin Cannot Gain in Weight
if they are troubled with dyspepsia, be-,
cause the food Is not converted into the
doe proportion of nourishing blood which
alone can furnish the elements of flesh.
But there is no reason, when this wearing, attenuating dUease is conquered by
Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery, why there should not be an appreciable gain in weight, which indeed is
usually the caso. It is a peerless remedy
also for Constipation, Liver Complaint,
Kidney troubles, and roots out all impurities from the blood,
