a destructive cyclone visited Armstrong i

An exchange snys: " Tliu tei-eilo
or sea worm, is still imconqucred.
In 1882 soveral pilos oonlod with
various patent anti-torcdo coverings
wore drivon at San Francisco for the
purposo of testing thorn, and a
few days ugo Engineer Manson enquired into the result of the experiments. A pile coated with Pearoe's
compound, rroniposed nf pm-iiftine,
limestone, kaolin, etc., was found to
Ire completely honeycombed liy the
teredos. The eucalyptus and cedar
piles were also nearly destroyed.
In,1884 the two piles incased in
sewer pipe and cement, the 23 coated in asphalt nnd cement and wire
cloth, tho ton coated with warm
cement containing n poisonous substance, and those coated with Portland oomctit, etc., wore examined.
AU showed signs of having proved
failures, Tho insect is ahead of the
inventors up to date." This is another striking proof of the advantage
of securing a fresh water harbor ns
the terminus of n railway or tho site
for any industry whero extensive
wharf accommodation is necessary.
The cost of replacing the wooden
piles in large wharves every threo
or four years is enormous, especially
where the wharves must be used for
heavy traffic while repairs are going
on. Iron piles may be used, but
they are very expensive, and the
salt water eats through tliom after n
while. A railway with its terminus
on a fresh water harbor such us
Westminster would affect n saving
of thousands of dollars every year.
Pilos driven here remain sound for
upwards of 30 years. Besides,
vessels very greatly prefer to discharge and load at a fresh water
port because by this means they get
tlieir bottoms cleaned free of cost.
Moreover, the absence of high tides
at this .port reduces the cost of loading and unloading by nearly one-
half. These are three substantial
advantages which aro equal to a vory
large subsidy; and when the river
mouth has been sufficiently deepened
we may expect them to operato
materially in favor af this city.
The completion of the Oregon &
California Railway is an event in
whlOh the peoplo of British Columbia, and especially the peoplo of this
city and district, are directly interested. This railway furnishes a
direct connection between Portland
and San Francisco, and brings us one
step nearer the consummation of our
long-cherished hopes when the railway, systems of tho Pacific coast
shall all be joined. The gap between the C.P.R. at Westminster
and the rood now reaching out from
Seattle is the only important link
wanting 'o complete the chain, and
our readers are now aware that
a contract has already been signed
for the construction of this link as
far north as the boundary. Tho
completion of the road to Westminster is only a question of time. This
will greatly add to the railway facilities of British Columbia, because it
will give us direct connectica with
the entire system of the const, and
with the wholo Ainn-ican railway
system. One of the results of the
completion of the grent international work will be a considerable in
crease in immigration to this province from the south. Washington
Territory, Oregon and California
have beon settling up with surprising rapidity during the past few
years. The great resources of the
United States enable it to secure
immigrants very much more easily
than Canada. Peoplo hearing of
the wonderful attractions of the
west have flocked thither by thousands, until regions that were lying
waste a few years ago now contain
large settlements. But it is not all
gold that glitters, nnd niany people
who have come to the Pacific coast
believing it to be a veritable paradise, are dissatisfied and ready to
change thoir location. Not a few
of these have already found their
way across the boundary into British Columbia, whore they have become permanent citizens. So eagerly did the western immigrants seize
upon the public lands that many
quarter sections tnken up were
found to be vory inferior for agri
cultural purposes. There nro
thousands of acres of land lying idle
in Westminster district whicli is infinitely better than lands that are
being cultivated in Oregon und
Washington Territory. This fact
is becoming known, and as tho
means of transport between the two
countries improve, those whose location! on the other side arc not quite
satisfactory will flock into this district, whero both soil and markets
are more favorable. We have long
held the opinion that for somo years
at least our principal immigration
will oome from the Pacific states,
and nothing will do so much to promote thit as railway construction.
Scrofulous humors, erysipelas, canker
and catarrh can be cured by taking A ver'a
Sarsaparilja. "I have used this meili-

Oh WkEwtform.—Public speakers and singes are often troubled
with sore throat and hoarseness and
are liable to severe bronchial attacks
which might be prevented and cured
by the use of Hagyard's Pectoral Balaam—the best throat and lung remedy.

When, in consequent of ago and disease, tho hair becomes weak, thin, and

I havo used Ayer's Hair Vigor for a
long tlmo, and am convinced of its
value. When I was 17 years of age my
hair began to turn gray. I commenced
using tho Vigor, and was surprised at
tlio good effects it produced. It not
only restored tho color to my hair, but
so stimulated its growth, that I have
now moro hair than over before —

Manag-ex. ELINOR.
"Elinor," tenderly, "I havo loved you
■ro Ion*; Must tire devotion of years
irrmr been lavished in vain?"
Th r plearliii" 'accents nwako no an-
sWering senliinent. The fair, white face
h mint. A fnint, pitying srailo hovers
riioninlthe tender curves of tho sweet
.month.
"•Disdain,1* ho thinks, "wero better
than such pnpromo indifference. "Elinor!" Wh'it a passionate yearning is in
tho low cry I
"Don't, please, Arthur! I almost feel
as if .1 must be terribly to blame for your
suffwing."
'9'oa to blatnd? Ah, no, doarost. I
could not help loving you from tho moment when, a youth of fifteen, I lirst
saw you lu church. I said to myself
thon: 'Arthur Gordon, thero is one girl
in the world.for you I' From that timo
forth my only hnppinoas consisted in
thinking of you; planning what I could
do to give you pleasuro, Alter four
years of such worship, I have been unablo
to move your heart. I have touched
your lifo so lightly that, were you never
to see mo again, you would not bestow
upon mo one regret."
"Indeed, you wrong mo," interrupted
tho young lady, earnestly. "Elinor
(iarrison never forgets a friend—and
who has heen a truer friend to tho orphan
than you, my brother?"
Gordon raised her dainty hand to his
lips, with reverential gesture. "I accept
tho title, dear love," ho said, gravely.
"If I tuny not bo more to you, at least I
will be your brother, ever ready to care
tor your interests, loving you with all my
might, yet hoping for nothing in return.
A slight blush stained the pale chocks.
. "You are too noble, Arthur. You deserve more. Forget mo; and find
another upon whom to pour out such
disinterested affection."
"The world holds no other for me"
ho answored, tenderly, a beautiful
smile illuminating hia frank countenance.
Meeting those clear, gray eyes, Elinor
felt that here was a man to be trusted.
*A hy could she not caro for him as Bho
desired? Rich, handsome, upright, what
11>oro could any woman demand? Sho
signed.
"Von havo heard the latest, of course,
Kllio?" gayly inquired a pretty girl, as
sho tossed aside her gloves, preparatory
to spending an hour or so with hor
iriend.
"No," answered Miss Harrison.
"Why, I thought ho must hove told
vou himself, so I ran over purposely to
hear all about it."
"Of whom are you speaking?" was the
quiet rospousc.
"Of Arthur Gordon. His engagement
to a Miss Marion Uepwortn of .Boston is
announced," watching Elinor furtively
ns sho answered.
Tlie hitter appeared courteously interested—nothing moro, as she resumed
the etching which Olive IindBey's
cntranco had interrupted.
"You uro not mistaken, Olive?" with
a grent assumption of indifference.
"Certainly not," wi»h eomo spirit as
tho young lady drew a tiny package of
rick-rack from her pocket and began to
work nimbly. "Brother Frank heard it
at tho club lost evening. You know,
Elite, I nover repeat a story unless very
sure of its truth."
Miss Garrison moiled. I was not
doubting you, Ollie," sho said, soothingly. "1 know you nro not a bit of a
guasiji."    A moment  lator, "Have I
shown you my new spring suit?"
adroitly turning the conversation.
(Inro (airly launched upon this fas-
rlnnmig topio, Miss Lindsay foigot to
refer again to Gordon's engagement, and
alter a half hour thai seemed intermiu-
uM r to Elinor, took her leave.
".o," thought Elinor, whilo hor red Up
curler I half scornfully, "this was the end
of all those protestations of undying
iidclity." '**
It wat a disappointment to find him no
ilill'crent from other men. Her heart
beat more rapidly at tho recollection of
his last words:
"Tho world holds no other for me."
"Ah!" whispered Elinor, triumphantly, "he lovea me only. I wish Miss
1 lepworth joy of her prize."
In a village, one's private affairs are
common property. Every one knew of
Gordon's long devotion to Miss Garrison.
.Ml wore anxious to see how ehe would
stand her knight's desertion.
Hut hone, were ablo to read ber real
(clings, though man; wen the surmises.
Gordon was away on business. Atthe
close of a fortnight he returned, and
sought Elinor's house the first of any.
Her greeting, though free from embarrassment and perfectly courteous, had
a something Indefinable, which struck
thn gentleman,
"Elinor," he said, softly, nnd Ms melodious tones thrilled the dormant heart
of ihe woman, "you ire not like yourself.
Havo you forgotten our parting compact,
little sister V" a silky mustache brushing
the averted cheek.
"That agreement ii no longer binding 1"
sho cried, indignantly, her usually gentle
eyes Hashing. "Do not dare to touch me,
Mr. Gordon!"
Excitement lent an additional charm
to tlio mobile face. Gordon gazed at her
admiringly. His loyej restrained for
years, would no more brook control. In
nn ecstasy of longing he caught hor in
his arms and kissed her madly, over and
over, until the scarlet hue of the beloved
countenance wanted him to desist.
"I will never forgive yon," she panted,
breaking from him—"never I" tears
lolling swiftly down.   "Leave mo 1"
"What have I done? I hav* lost her
respect, her friendship," thought he regretfully. Yet ihe bliss of that supremo
instant, when ho had held her close to
his throbbing heart, more than repaid
for tho self-denial ot the past.
And Elinor? Bewildered, frightened,
aroused from hor calm apathy to consciousness of the truth, she buried her
burning face in the tola pillow, sobbing.
The nnpiidonett uncontrollable ardor of
I ho nun had in one moment swept away
the barriers of coldness and pride.. Elinor Garrison know that she loved.
Hut, alas I tho knowledge came too late.
Walking homeward, Gordon received
so ninny congratulations upon his engagement that ho began to (oil annoyed.
"Simply because I visit Elinor first,
they must neon's link onr' names," he
muttered, "lt is well she does not hear
it. I only wish it were so," a smile
playing around his firm month.
"We¥, then is it to be?" called Miss
Olive, saucily, as, oboylng • beckoning
linger, Gordon drew near her as she sat
by tho open window. "Now do not protend ignorance," sho continued, "for I
want to hear all about hor. Is sho beautiful, rich, etc,?"
"I shall bo better able to answer you
whon 1 hear tho fair one's name," was
Ihe laughing reply.
"Whnt an actor you would have made!
Tho lady lives In Boston, whence a
certain gentleman has Just returned."
"fc'oj then, thoy havo not referred to
Elinor," thought Gordon, thankfully.
"I assure you, Miss Lindsay, that I
havo no idea ol whom you aro speaking."   > _,
Olive laughed. "Miss Hopwortb, I
believe hor name is."
A toll, slim, drabish spinster rose before Gordon's vision. His mouth
twitched, but ho said nothing.
"Well?" said Olivo, inquiringly.
"Oh, excuso me, please; good afternoon," and much to tho young lady's
surprise, the tall figure was striding down
tho street.
"Manners!" sho grumbled, ns ehe
closed the window.
Entering.the famiiiar side door, Gordon
stepped lightly into the room he had 60
lately quitted,
Elinor sprang hastily to hor feet. The
traces of weeping were evident. She
would havo Ilea, but strong arms detained
her, gathering her in a close, fervent
embrace
A truthful voico murmured tenderly,
"It was all a groat mistnko, darling. How
could you doubt mo, Elinor ?"
"Was it not worth while, sinco it
showed uio my heart ?" was the low reply, as her shy, glad eyes wero lifted to
meet her lover's.
RANDOM SHOT.
i     	
In days long ago tho Russians got a
foothold in Upper California and ior a
time held possession of that portion of the
Pacifio shore from Russian river, northward. Their principal colony was at Fort
Ross, now in the northern part of Sonoma
County, where, for over thirty years, tho
business of seal fishing was successfully
carried on.
The Russians sold out to Capt. John A.
Sutter, who in turn sold that vast estato
to Wm. Bennetts;, an intelligent Prussian,
some years previous to tho discovery of
gold in California. For overthirty years
the latter lived at Fort Ross mUchin tho
style of tho old foudol Barons.
In 1802 I had occasion to enjoy Mr.
Bonnettz hospitality and heard from his
own lips some thrilling adventures of the
then, long ago. Of the many incidents
narrated ono will suffice here.
Said Mr. Bennettz: "At the time I
purchased the Fort Ross property thero
were around and in the neighborhood of
the Fort about two hundred Indians.
Voluntarily they had become almost a
part of the estate, and as obedient to my
orders as if mine, soul and body. I then
raised a large amount oi grain, and had
thousands of head of cattle, which gavo
mo ample opportunity to utilize the labor
of these untutored aboriginocs. As iny
influence over them mainly depended on.
tho kindness and consideration with
which thoy were treated, I let no opportunity pass to give them evidenco of my
regard for their pleasure and welfare.
"They, like nil Indians I know of, wore,
passionately fond of personal decoration
and lor ornamentation prized nothing-
more highly than tho plumage of birds.
One day my Indians were noticing some
vultures, or California condors, on tho
pino trees some I istnnce up tho mountain
sido back of tho Fort, lind I overheard
them expressing a wish that they had
some of their feathers.
"Saying nothing, I quietly took my
rillo and sallied forth, determined if
possiblo to gratify their desire. By tacking backward and forward along tbo
mountain-sido 1 gradually worked my
way up to the trees whero the vultures
were. The heavy foliago of tho pine
prevented my getting a ready view of
the game I was seeking. With my gun
cocked and the muzzle pointing up I was
moving quietly sidewiso with eyes peering into the canopy of boughs when I
was startled by tho breaking of a stick
closo to my right.
"Ono look was sufficient to set every
hair of my head on endl
"Not much over the length of my gun
from mo stood, erect on its hind feet, rr
grizzly boar of monster size—at tho timo
ho seemed to me ten feot high!
"By impulse I whoeled, brought my
gun to a level, and without any attempt
nt taking aim, fired. The bear pitcher.
lorward npon me and wo fell together—
my gun flying out of my hands, and somo
distanco away.
"I wns Irightened beyond tbe power
of language to express 1
Tho bear and I had fallen together, hut
I had givon myself a rolling lurch down
tho mountain which, for the moment
took mo out of tho reach of his dro.idod
jaws. Tbls advantago was not to be lost •
and I kept going over and over without
any regard to elegance of posture, until
I had got at least two hundred yards
from where I foil: nnd when I stopperi
rolling it was a problem with mo whether
I was most dead or alive.
"I ventured upon my foot ond looked
cautiously around, hut could see uo
grizzly.
"To 1 orrow a miner's phrase 'I began
projecting around.' I had an earnest
desire to get bold of my gun, but a dislike to tho neighborhood in which wo
had parted company.
"With the utmost caution I worked
my way up to a position overlooking the
spot where I and the grizzly together
foil.
"To my surprise and gratification ns
well there lay tho hoar stretched at full
length, nnd dead.
"My random shot had proved what
seldom occurs to grlzzley boors, a dead
shot.
"That," said Mr. Bonnoltz, knocking
the ashes out of an elegant meerschaum,
"was the biggest scare of my llfo."

Be Died like a Gentleman.
One of tho most Interesting incidents
of tho late war is told of Gen. Lytlo, just
before he received IiIb fatal wound al
Cliicnmanga. Ho had made his brilliant
charge into tho midst of tho onomy
whore nil chances of retreat were cut olf,
Suddenly ho thrust his hand into his coat
pocket, drew forth a pair of kid gloves
and began patting them on. Asked by
an aid tho reason for this movement, so
unexpected under such thrilling circumstances, tho General answered: "Don't
you see we are surrounded and that
there sre but two alternatives left us—to
dio or to surrender? lror mv part I propose to dio like a gentleman!" He draw
on his glove^nnd soon after fell. Those
who know Gen. l.ytlo in Cincinnati
knew him lo bo most punctilious nbout
tho appointments of a gcnlloman, but no
one over supposed him capable ofeuch
incomparable coolness.

P. It., instead of selling tickets to be
used on steamers from San Francisco
to Vancouver, will Bell ticketB via
Portland,, over the Northern Pacific
road to Tacoma, where its own Puget
sound steamers will bu taken for Vancouver. This is said to be one of the
conditions on which the Canadian Pacific became a member of tbe new
Transcontinental Association.
Rapid Transit.
The cattle taken over by tho Yosemite on her last trip, reached Victoria
just 23 hours aftor being loaded on the
train at Ashcroft. When it is taken
into consideration that Ashcroft is 200
miles from this city, and Viotoria 75
miles further oo, it will be acknowledged that this is remarkably quick
time. The work of unloading cattle
from the cars into the.corral and from
there getting them aboard the steamer,
occupies considerable time. The time
made by these cattle from point of
shipment to destination is, by loug
adds, the fastest on record in this
province. One lot numbering 33 head
shipped by Mr. Graves averaged, on
reaching Victoria, 1521 lbs. each.
These are admitted to be the heaviest
and finest lot of cattle ever received
in that city.
Hallway Matters*
An imporant meeting was held in
the Driard Hotel in this city last meeting, in connection with the construction of the Seattle, West Shore and

present, aa woro also tho contractors,
Messrs. Sinclair, (of Port Haney) Col.
Scott, Mi H. Tappen and T. H.
Sparlin«,vof Seattle, and T. P. JVIullen,
of Chicago. It is reported that all the
preliminaries for the completion of
the road to the boundary, by way of
Whatcom and Lyndon, have beon arranged. Tho contract will amount to
about $1,500,000. It is expected that
the line will be in operation early next
fall. W lien once as far as the boundary it is believed there will ■ be no
difficulty experienced in carrying it to
the Fraser river at some point convenient to the line of the C. "P. It.—

The Swiss Bell Ringer*.
Our people were treated to a tine
amusement feast at the Opera House
lut Saturday evening by the Royce &,
Lansing Swiss Bell-ringers. A more
refined and inteteatiug entertainment
never Btruck the town. Ray L. Royce in his various imitations cannot be
excelled: He is truly a "man of many
faces," changing from the sublime to
tho ridiculous almost instantly, and
is ably supported by Mr. Web. Lans-
ing. The latter is also a complete
band, playing upon seven different
instruments at the same time, Lizzie
H. Boyce and Nellie Hoskiiia are ladies of refinement, and talented in tho
musical and vocal line. The bell-ringing, in fact, tho entire musical program was highly appreciated and of a
superior quality. Should they chance
to visit this oity again, we feel safe in
predicting a crowded house. Such an
entertainment we can heaitily recommend to a refined, musical and amusement loving community.— Stage Ledger, Jackson Min.
Webster's Block.
Among tho many fine buildings that
hare been added to our city during the
past six months is the one which has
just been completed fur Mr. John A.
Webster on Front street . The building is of brick, 3 stories high, designed
for either wholesale or retail business,
It hu a frontage 66 feet, and a depth
of 40 feet. A centre passage runs from
the front to an enclosed court yard, 11
feet wide in the rear of the building,
and is common lo the whole. The
front is supported . by arches resting
on sue brick columns which are tied
longitudinally byan iron bar above the
crown of the arch in the centro cf tho
wall. Tho stylo of the front is that of
old English, With brick dental cornices, plain, bold.nnd substantial without any gingerbread work whatever.
Tho roof is covered with tin whioh,
according to specifications should have
been raised joints, but the proprietor
chose fiat joints. Tho building is divided into three stores on the ground
flat, ono of which is occupied by Mr.
Teach, in the clothing line, another is
used by Capt, Millard, and the third
is vacant. The second and third stories
are not fully completed yet; they will
be psrtioned off to suit the tenants.
Capt. Millard bas leased the whole
building, part of which ho will occupy
in the commission bwineGB, and tho.
rest he will sublet as an investment,
Messrs. Beckatt «fc Oo. wero the
contractors for the mason work, the
other work being divided up between

Whilo sitting iu hia bouse lie heard tho
bounds give tongue uud knowing thut
they had started a deer took down hia
rifle aud started for the rivor. On
reaching the bank he found to his sorrow that the deer had got there ahead
of him and was nearly half-way across.
Jumping into a canoe he started in
chase, and on catching up found that
in the excitement he had left the rifle
on tbe beach. Nothing daunted tho
ardent sportsman jumped on the deer's
baok and grasping it by the horns
managed to drown it just as shoro was
reached. To-day thero h one proud

CANADIAN INVESTMENTS.
London, Dec. 17.—Tho investment
market is flooded with mining ventures, including a Canadian Phosphate
company with £110,000 capital, one-
third of which will be allotted to the
vendor, to buy the Star Hill, William
and Rudy mines at Portland, Province
of Quebec, now worked by tho Union
Phosphate Company of New York.
It is estimated that it will pay seven
and n half per cent dividend.
WOMAN SCFFfiRAaB.
London, Dec. 17.—The adoption of
woman suffrage ns a part of the conservative platform is likely to prove
troublesome to a section of the liberal
unionists. Sir Henry James first
made his mark in the house of commons by an elaborate and impassioned
attack on the advocates uf woman suffrage, and, ever since that time, ho has
been an active, bitter and persistent
opponent of such a change. Mr.
Bright notoriously thinks that the less
women concern themselves with public affairs tho better, even with reference to social and moral questions. Mr.
Chamberlain ia probably tho most
thorough-going advocate of what Mr,
Mill called "The subjection of women," alike in its political, economical
and domestic aspects, who has evor
filled a conspicuous place in English
publio life. If Mr. Chamberlain is as
frankly loyal to his old opinionson
question oa Mr. Bright ia to his opinions about protection, a vigorous letter
may be expected from America no tho
"Female Mufirago" question, and those
who remember bygone debates in the
house of commons on woman suffrage
and the contributions made to tliem
by Mr. Smollett, formerly member of
parliament for Cambridge, will recug-
nine that it is a subject which affords
unequalled scope for homely raoincts
of language.

"I was afflicted with rheumatism, and
had given up all hopes of a cure. By
chance I saw Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil
recommended. I immediately sent {fifty
miles) and purchased four bottles, and
with only two applications I was able to
get around, and although 1 have not
used one bottle, I am nearly well. The
other three bottles I gave around to my
neighbors, and I have hud so many calls
for more, that I feet bound to relievo the
